We camped at this location on our way to and from Florida, so each way was just an overnight stay, not the destination. We found that signage and communication at this park were very poor. On the way down, we never saw where we needed to check in so there was confusion there, and on the return visit, we arrived at 5:30 pm to find the visitors center and the gate into the campground locked up. Fortunately my cell phone worked there and so I called the main number and got someone to give us the code to the gate. She said there should be a packet for us near the gate, but I never found one.
Some of the navigation appeared to me to be a bit tight for folks with large 5th wheels, but since we don't have a trailer that large, I couldn't say for sure.
I can't speak to any of the other amenities, but it appeared that there was a restaurant and sometimes live entertainment. Since we never really received any campground info, I am unsure about what all was available.
It is a very pretty park with many lakefront sites, there is a good (free) museum of military memorabilia from the revolutionary war up through Desert Storm and a display of military vehicles, plane and helicopter. It is good to see a nice memorial to our veterans. The gnats are very bad, but that is not the campground's fault, just a feature of South Georgia. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.
CALL AHEAD to find out what to do for after 5:00 check ins and be aware that the regular check ins are done at visitor center straight past the plane.
