This has to be one of the prettiest state parks that I have visited. The waterfalls, hiking trails, visitors center and even the lodge were great. I would fully recommend that you visit here on a day trip or experience what this park has to offer. When you arrive at the campground you quickly realize that this is not run by the state of Georgia. It is run by a private company. They are obviously not spending money on the campground. The roads around the campground are washed and rutted badly. Many of the water valves at the campsite are leaking and will not shut off. Customer service at check-in is marginal at best. There was a mix up with our phone reservation and when I got there to check in they would not honor what they had said. They were very unresponsive and uncaring about their mistake. Its too bad. This could be one of the nicest campgrounds around if they took care of it. Also, please note that the drive up to the campground is steep. There are warning signs of a 25% grade. If you are not confident in your tow vehicle I would recommend you find another campground.

This is a very nice Corps of Engineers park on West Point lake. The sites are well spaced and offer lots of privacy. Water and electrical hookups were fine and I did not experience any problems with either. The front office personnel were very hospitable and helpful. They do a great job. The only objection to the park is that its about 12 miles or so from the nearest city. Other than that, its a wonderful park and we will be coming back.

This was our first visit to the park and we loved it. The campground was beautiful. The lake access at our site was a little difficult. There were large rocks that made it difficult to access the lake. We were able to do a little fishing here. There was abundant wildlife around the campground with deer, rabbits, ducks and geese. The front attendants were courteous and pleasant. No complaints from me.

We had a great time camping at Hard Labor Creek campground. The sites were level, shady and well maintained. The bathrooms were old but clean, which is all you can ask for. There is not a lot of things for kids to do. The observatory is open one night a month. If you can plan your trip for one of the open houses at the observatory I would highly recommend it. We were able to see Jupiter, the moon and several binary stars. Very educational.

This is one of my family's favorite parks for camping. There are lots of places to visit and things to do within an easy driving distance to this state park. The bathrooms were as clean and well stocked. Although the weather was quite hot and muggy our shady site made the visit pleasant.

This was one of the nicest parks that we've camped in. The scenery was spectacular. The park itself was pretty and very well taken care of. The campsites were large and level. Both the east and west rim campsites were nice. The west rim sites were a little more private. The bathrooms were clean and very well supplied. It is probably better than most state parks.
