Great park close to the interstate, but not close enough to get the noise. Nice pool, okay playground and a nice area down by the river. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The sites are very nice and have plenty of room; ours had a nice sitting area and picnic table. We were only there overnight, but this would be a nice park to spend a few days. We'll be back.

Good park in a so-so part of town. The staff is friendly and helpful; the sites are a little tightly packed but adequate. We were way in the back (G5), and it was very quiet. The playground is one of the better ones we have seen with lots of options for all ages. There was a pancake breakfast advertised but we didn't partake as we were getting an early start. We'll definitely be back.

Great park in an unlikely place. The park is very well laid out with plenty of room for each site and has excellent amenities. We happened to be there during a little league tournament so the place was packed with boys (the person who took my reservation let me know this up front). When I arrived the power went out (a transformer down the road) and someone from the office went around and let us know when it was back so we could shut down the generator and go back to shore power.

Stayed here for a week. The park is excellent in most ways. I stayed in site 24, and most of the sites in this area (17-27) are a little tricky to get level on. All sites have a covered picnic table set on a concrete slab. Like many reviewers have said, the wildlife is abundant and they come right up to the picnic tables while you're eating (I think some people have ignored the "Do Not Feed the Animals" policy). My only issue with the park is the Wi-Fi was not working, and the staff seemed not to be in any mood to get it fixed. Cell phone reception is almost nil until you get up on top of the scenic overlook.

This is a nice park conveniently located for us to visit family. The park was packed and we were given a site on what amounted to a gravel parking lot ringed by full hook-up sites. It rained a lot during our 5 night stay and although there were puddles they were easy to work around, and there was sufficient gravel so things did not get muddy. The hook-ups were a little confusing as there were 2 different electrical boxes. My first choice was upright but had no juice. The other was laid down at about a 45 degree angle and had both 30 and 50 amp outlets. Best I can figure the odd angle was intentional as all of the boxes were the same ??? The office folks were friendly and helpful. I'm sure we'll be back since this is the most convenient park for us to visit family.

This was our second and third visits. We now list this as one of our favorite parks. The only reason I don't give it a 10 is the playground is a pretty long hike from the campground (of course it did do me some good as I need the exercise). The over night pull-through sites are long and fairly level and the hook-ups are conveniently located. In addition to the playground there is a nice lake and walking trails. We will be back!

Really nice park with all of the things we need - playground for the kids, long level sites, and easy to get to. Although it is not as convenient to the interstate as the other campground in town, it makes up for it by having stuff for kids. The hook-ups are very well positioned and the owners are really doing a great job of making their guests feel welcome. We will definitely use this campground again.

Great for an overnight, probably for longer if there is a reason to stay in Lake City. Nice playground, friendly people. They do give themselves room to kick you out (staking things in the ground, chasing ducks etc) but they did not indicate any desire to use them. Our site was very long and nearly level. They require wood or plastic blocks under jack pads, but they do supply some (there were even enough to hold my water filter since I couldn't stick the holder in the ground). We'll probably continue to use this campground.

Nice place to stay when visiting Charleston. We've been here several times over the Thanksgiving holiday and as always we had a great stay. They still could use to upgrade the playground and considering the number of sites, the laundry facilities are a bit skimpy (4 washers and 2 large dryers).

Date of Stay:

Great campground especially if you have a couple of days to enjoy the park. Christmas stuff was in full swing and our kids loved it. Another reviewer refered to this as a "State Park" it is not. We opted for a higher price to have a pull-in site (152) with a great view of the lake (out the windshield) and a (propane supplied) grill on a deck overlooking the lake. We made an EASY side trip into Atlanta to visit the "World of Coca-Cola" and dinner at The Varsity (right on the way to the museum). I would not recommend this for an overnight just because of the extra $10 entrance fee. I hope we will be back, but there are still a lot of other places to see.

This is a great campground in a nice area. We were arriving a bit late on a Sunday evening and the host called to check on us and let us know how to enter/ where to find him. He led us to our site told us to pay in the morning and left us alone. The site was very level and plenty long to leave the car hooked up. There is no playground at the campground but more than likely there is one somewhere in the park. They do not take credit cards, so be sure to have check or cash.

First of all the people here are great! We got stuck in the Christmas Eve snow storm and spent several extra hours plugged in to keep warm and watch the weather reports until the snow stopped and we felt we could safely leave. They loaned us a ladder to shovel snow off of the slide awnings and the man even stayed to stabilize the ladder while I dumped snow on his head. This campground is easy to get to and has a small playground that could use some work, but the sites are long, level and well kept. There was a nearby steakhouse that delivers to your site.

This is a great place to stay when attending an event at Lifeway's Ridgecrest Conference Center. It is quiet and well cared for, mostly by volunteers who are there helping at the conference center and staying at the campground. You would be hard pressed to find nicer, more helpful campground hosts. If you are not in real good shape, you will need a car to get back and forth to the conference center. The road between is a public road (not very busy) and is VERY hilly. Up and over the interstate then down to the bottom of the center then back up to any of the facilities. The laundry is small (two pairs) but free.

Good place for an overnight stop. We stopped twice in a week. The park is close (about 2 miles) to lots of restaurants and shopping. The sites are plenty long if you keep your toad hooked-up, and fairly level. As stated in previous reviews, this is a work in progress, the playground, pool and tent camping area are in the "future projects" area on their site map. There is a major power transmission line running between the current sites and the bath house. We tried using AT&T broadband without much success (maybe interference from the power lines?). The sign coming from the north (exit 222) is tough to see.

Nice campground. We stayed for a week. Only downsides were - it was tough to get our unit level even with jacks, and the site was muddy in the rain. The staff went out of their way to help when there was any problem. The walk / bike ride into town was easy, and the Fisherman's Picnic was a lot of fun. (It took two hours of redialing on January 5th to get through for reservations). The indoor pool was great (the very cool summer would have made an outdoor pool unusable). Don't jump in the lake, you'll freeze to death. We'll be back at every opportunity.
