We had a wonderful stay here. The campground is sort of older, and some of the "upkeep" could be better, but it fits the whole town--sort of like a mini-Key West! The lady on the phone was very nice; said it was directly on the gulf--which is sort of true. It's more like an inlet, but a pretty view nonetheless. The shower house/bathrooms were old but very clean. Great WI-FI service, very fast. Cable was not so good, but we watched movies instead. Water pressure excellent. Great little place, and the price was right for the area!! My inlaws came with us and stayed in the attached "Motel" (4 rooms).

We had a wonderful stay here. It was prime time in Gatlinburg/PF area. The campground was full, of course. The sights were VERY close together, but the back sites where we were we very long, so there was plenty of room in the back for campfires, etc. It looks to me like a big rig might have issues pulling in here--there are peoples trucks and toads all over the road, making it difficult to navigate, but manageable. We will go back here.

We pulled in here in the middle of the week, and there were plenty of open spots. The sites were well spaced apart, then again, we have a small TT. The bathrooms were clean, but had a "home-made" look, which is typical. The camp store was well stocked, and handy. We brought a fire ring with us (none were provided) and had a fire at the sight. The view--superb! Directly on the beach--nothing in between the back of the camper and the ocean, which, I suppose, justifies the $80/night cost. We have two dogs, and it was inconvenient to have to walk all the way to the road to walk them, but for the other positives, that could be ignored. Overall, a great experience!

We booked this place sight-unseen. When we pulled in, it was much smaller than I expected. We checked in and proceeded back to our site, which was directly on Jonathon Creek--beautiful! The entire campground is shaded, so it was wonderful in July. All the sites had fire rings and a picnic table; although, they were all tight. Thankfully, there was an empty site next to us. We were directly in front of the bath house. We used it--the women's and handicap were clean and nice. The men's looked like they forgot to finish it when the built the building--unfinished, bare studs, crowded stalls. And nasty! So, for the rest of the time, I used the handicap bathroom. There was 90% seasonal; in fact, I don't think anyone else checked in the three days we were there. Loved the shade and creek, love the area. We would stay here again. The price was right!

Great park for passing through. Can see the beautiful Toccoa Falls while on campus. Campground is located on the southeast end of a beautiful 1100-acre wooded campus. Sights are all gravel and level. Not much to look at, but the on-campus scenery is nice. Just call the college and make a reservation; pay at the guard-shack. We loved it!
