I normally like GA COE campgrounds but this one was not as nice as the other campgrounds. A lot of the sites are too close together and are sort of stacked up so that you can have another camper above or below you. There are a few premium sites at the end of the peninsula that could be great, but we were on site 6 which felt cramped. The CG has a beach which was okay but small and with a lot of leaves and debris on the lake floor. There is a really nice mountain bike trail, Amadahy Trail, a few miles before you enter the park.

Another great COE campground. Carters Lake is beautiful and more tranquil than Lake Lanier. Some sites have very nice decks built around them since the sites are on steep areas. Great parking pads, wonderful place.

Nicest campground yet. Like all COE campgrounds, this one is very well maintained with large, well spaced sites. This CG has a great beach area on the lake.

We have camped here three times now and have camped at two other corps of engineer campgrounds. They are all excellent. Bald Ridge has a large section of very wooded sites that are right next to the water. Sites are well spaced. CG is always quiet.

Unicoi is a beautiful state park with a nice lake and swimming area and nice trails for mountain biking. It is also next to Helen, GA where there is a lot to do. The CG is just OK. It is a single line of campsites along a stream but the sites are a little close together for my tastes and there is no view. It is too bad that, with all the land of the park, they could not have made the campground nicer.

A smaller COE campground but still very nice with nicely spaces sites. A few sites are on the end of a peninsula and have amazing views. CG is very convenient to north Atlanta.

Campground was OK, not great. It is on a stream but, as with most commercial campgrounds, the sites are too close together. It has a pool, albeit small. And, the people were very nice. However, it seems like more of a place to park and stay than to vacation. We used it as base to go rafting at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City. That was awesome.

Vogel is a great state park with nice campsites. Several are along a beautiful stream. Pretty much all are nicely wooded. Park has a big field for playing and throwing ball. There is a nice playground. The lake and swimming area are nice and well kept and there is great hiking. Location is excellent if you are a cyclist that wants to do some climbing. We've camped here at least twice and hiked here many times.

Owners were very nice and location was very convenient for a one night stop over on our way south. Not somewhere I would go for a vacation. Some of the sites are close together but the other campers were very quiet and the vibe was good. Although it is close to the highway, we did not notice any road noise.

One of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in. Owners are European and it felt like we were in Europe. Lots of spaces for big rigs but we have a small trailer and felt very comfortable. We stayed across from the playground so the kids had the whole field and playset to themselves. Loved this place.

Nice place. We didn't know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. The sites where we were (#175) all have some sort of trees/vegetation between them so you have some separation. The surfaces are gravel and level. Older reviews talk about bad roads but that has been fixed now and the roads are smooth and well maintained. Campground was extremely quiet at all times. Many campers are from French speaking Canada and keep to themselves. We had a most of the sites are for tents. Our site was small for our trailer. We knew it was a 20 amp site but the 30 amp sites were not as nice so we squeezed in. Pool is great. Has a tree growing on a big rock next to it. Our kids loved that. Owners are nice.

We had a nice, big site (# 38) and loved this place. Planned to stay 2 nights and stayed 4. Very quiet, great hiking trails, nice area across highway 1 and on the coast. Loved it.

Not as crowded as many commercial campgrounds and had some really cool things like freshly steamed lobster, ready to cook dutch oven meals, etc. Campground was quiet and had a nice feel.

Nice lake with some great spots around the lake. Very quiet, nice owners. Some of the seasonal units are pretty run down but the people make up for it. Campground also has a group of very old and really cool cottages on the lake. They look fun. We had a good time.

This is a giant campground and we were not able to choose our site when we made reservations. The campground worked well for our needs. We left every day and spent the day outside the campground. However, it is not a place I would want to spend a lot of time. Our area had good people that were quiet, but in other areas, and especially near their bar, it was really loud with various campers playing different types of music. So, it was OK but probably very bad if you were in the wrong spot. Some people like mega campgrounds and, for those people, this is a good one.
