We stayed three days and got a great campsite. We were right on the water and had a campfire. The staff had cut firewood stacked nearby which was a nice touch. The campground had been recently mowed and the grounds were in great shape. The lake was down but we saw a few boaters and fishermen and saw a guy catch a big one 100 yards away. The laundry is good although it is ways from the campground. Plenty of parking and a good turn around point for checking in before heading to the assigned campsite. My Verizon MiFi worked fine. My AT&T did not work. The campground is 35 miles away from Augusta and Fort Gordon so it takes a while to get there. We went downtown to the Visitor Center and played golf at Fort Gordon one day. The golf course is a real gem and was in great shape. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Made reservations a month in advance and made it clear we were big rig -- they had us in area 3 that we could hardly get in or out of, let alone back into the site with all the obstacles. Be advised, only area 2 accommodates big rigs and even that can be tight. Staff not helpful at first, but eventually one young lady helped us and we were able to park. Spent a week visiting military family, were 17 miles from them, but this was still easier than Leitner, traveling 25 MPH on base for 20 miles. Nice recreation area with beach, great for families, otherwise this is camping, not RV'ing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First time visiting this campground and let me start by saying if you are into boating this is the place for you. After arriving we were placed in a site way too small for my trailer (34 ft.), went back to office and was given a second site, still too small. Went back a third time and was sent to area # 2, 90% of the sites had cars and trucks parked in it with boat trailers and they were all camping spots, several had tents in a full hook up site; had to settle for a site way in the front just so I can get into one. Now..took a ride around the entire place, not too clean, most of the tent sites had trash on the ground, grass uncut, my site had trash on the ground also. The saving factor was the price, very good for such a large park, and it is very quiet. Would I return to this campground? Most likely not. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Off season, but still enjoyable. Lake was a little low. Met here to deliver a 5er. All employees cordial. Can't say much for their rental trailers...Complete, but the bed was sorely lacking. Should you need RV work while in the area, there's a big dealer at the Appling exit off I-20, but STRONGLY suggest you get service price in writing beforehand. We made a $200+ mistake on a hitch installation by accepting an oral quote. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a campgroung for ritired or active military and we were able to stay here because our granddaughter is active Air Force stationed at Fort Gordon in Augusta. We planned to stay a week and, after seeing the park, we decided to stay two weeks. This is one of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at. Our site was located in section 2 with a beautiful view of the lake. About the only thing missing is Wi-Fi at the sites, but it is available in the lodge. The staff is super friendly and accommodating and the $12 senior rate is not bad either. The park is somewhat remote with the closest commercial development in Evans, about 15 miles away. Our granddaughter is going to Korea for a year but when she returns we will definitely come back here and stay for at least a couple of weeks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Near Appling, GA on GA Hwy 47. Approx. 25 miles from Ft. Gordon. Great fishing. Canoes, paddle boats, bikes, hiking, lake swimming, picnicing. Large children's play area. Three park hosts on duty, plus a full-time caretaker. Office staff the best we've found. Huge fireplace in the lodge/office. Been there four times and will come back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very good Staff. If you come in late, check in with Park Host or wait till morning. Military Camp Ground. Active/Reserve/Retired is OK. Not too far to down town Augusta...It is a drive though. Stay there every chance I get. Bathrooms are located in only one of the camping areas. We camped here in a camper.
