Date of Stay: March, 2017
This is where we have stayed long term (several months) for the last few years. We are big fans, and have watched it improve every visit. There has been a recent change in ownership/management, and renovations are in the planning stage. The staff continues to be friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are dated but immaculate. All utilities are reliable, the cable was recently updated and works well with 25 channels, and the wifi is adequate for basic needs. The Campground is centrally located with good shopping/services nearby. We will happily stay again.

This was our 2nd stay and it is a great COE park. The sites are well spaced, although we've never been there when it was crowded. Water and electric work great. Water was 70psi so we used our regulator. There is a dump station on the way out. Too many trees on site 76 for our satellite dish but we were able to use it on site 71 on our previous stay. Verizon 4G worked well.

Very nice, quiet and laid back. It's a good place to rest for a night or 2. Everything worked great (water 60 psi, so we used our regulator), except wifi. We connected well to the park's access point but it was not on the internet. Called the owner, met him at the office and he reset his router. It was good after that. He also gave us a tour of the old trucks he is restoring.

We had a roomy 50 amp pull through site - gravel with grassy area. We were the only RV in the section. It was fairly level and all utilities worked well - except wifi. Wifi was intermittently fair to not usable, even though there were wifi antennas in our section. Our Verizon 4G worked well. The Staff was very nice and helpful, providing info on road conditions as the weather deteriorated. The internal roads were muddy, a little hilly and some turns were tight. We were not led to our site. We stayed 2 nights and had one inch of snow the first night. No efforts were made to plow or clear the snow, but it was all melted by afternoon. We didn't use any of the amenities but the campground was neat and well cared for. We were in a 33 foot 5th wheel and might stay again if we can't find something less expensive.

We had a long, grass, pull through, 50amp, full hook-up site, in the overnight section. Very little leveling was needed. All utilities worked fine, our Direct dish worked well and Verizon gave us a weak 3G signal until we added our Wilson Sleek booster and outside antenna. Then we got a solid 4G signal. The campground offers Tengo for a fee, that we did not try. The gentleman in the office said they were not happy with Tengo and were looking for a better internet provider. Bathrooms were spotless. There was a laundry facility but we did not use it. We stayed for 2 nights in the middle of the week and it was mostly deserted. There was only one other rig in the overnight section and it looked like many of the long term seasonal folks had closed up for the season. $15.50 per night reflects a Passport America discount. The only reason we don't give a 10 is because of the pay extra charge for internet. RV campgrounds need to have a good internet connection and WiFi to get a 10. We will stay again if in the area.

We had a long, level, gravel, pull through site. It was 50 amp with water. Part of the site was very wet, even though there had been no recent rain. Everything worked fine except the wifi. There are wifi antennas throughout the park but it was very poor most of the time and completely unusable at our site. We had to rely on our Verizon and that was a solid 3G and marginal 4G. We were in the wooded section. The bathrooms and showers at the office looked clean and well maintained, although we did not use them. They were far from our site and would require driving. Our biggest complaint is that it is very over priced. Our $29 rate reflects a Passport America 50% discount for one of our 2 nights. The normal rate for a site with water and electric and without a sewer connection is $39! There are no sewer connections at any site. They have a single dump site on the way out. We had to wait in line. We will not stay again at those extremely high rates.

We had a nice 2 night stay. We had a full hook-up, back-in, 50 amp, site, on grass, next to an empty house. 50 amp was not listed on RVParkreviews but apparently a few sites do have it. Everything worked fine and we agree with previous posters that it has a very friendly atmosphere. Everyone we met was nice. They don't have wifi but our Verizon 4G worked well. It has a nice playground and lots of scheduled activities in the Summer. There are a lot of old rigs on semi permanent sites, but most were clean and neat. It was very quiet. The roads are gravel and a little steep and tight in places. They need some improvement. The bathrooms and showers are old but clean. While we were there the women's rest room/shower was being renovated, so the men's was co-ed. It was not crowded in September so that did not appear to be a problem. The laundry room was new and nice. We were in a 33 foot 5th wheel and would stay again.

We had 50 amp back-in gravel/grass site 402C. We leveled easily, utilities worked fine and we were happy to find MSNBC on the cable. Verizon 4G was strong and the park WiFi was pretty good - above average. We had a good shot for our satellite dish. The grounds and facilities were very clean and neat. The staff was friendly and helpful. We are Geocachers and were glad to find one in the campground. Our only complaint is that it is a little pricey at $45 per night - no discounts that applied to us. We would stay again.
Date of Stay: August, 2014
Rate includes taxes and reflects a $25 discount using our rewards points, but we had to pay a $5 early check in fee. We lowered our rating because of that! We hate early check in fees! The staff was friendly and drove us around in a cart so we could check out sites. We settled on pull through site 18. It was a long, mostly level, gravel, full hook-up site. It was wooded, so we didn't even try to put out our dish. Utilities worked great except for internet. The campground wifi was terrible and un-usable. We lowered our rating for that too! Verizon 4G worked well. They have a flock of chickens that we found delightful, running around the sites. We were in a 33 foot 5th wheel and did not find the drive in from the interstate objectionable at all. It WOULD be a little hard in the dark. We would stay again IF, no early check-in fee and usable wifi, otherwise, NO.

We spent 2 nights and enjoyed it. We were in pull-through site #48 in the West Rim area. Even though the park says they only have 30 amp electric, this site has 50 amp. Several others we checked also had 50 amp. Many of the 30 amp sites we looked at had two 30 amp plugs. The water and electric worked fine. The site was well packed gravel and only minor leveling was needed. Most of the sites we considered were level like that. We tried site 40 first, but found it to be too far out of level side to side. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were immaculate. The laundry even had a rocking chair. We are only giving an 8 rating because of the internal roads and the fact that Georgia charges a $5 vehicle fee on top of the campground fee. The internal roads are narrow, as expected, but there has been a lot of rain water erosion on the sides of the roads. This makes the back-in sites difficult. Combined with the narrowness and curves, it creates a drop off that our one-ton dually would have a hard time dealing with turning and backing, into a site. The road into the park from the interstate does have 2 switch- backs and climbs 1000 feet in under 4 miles, but the turns have wide shoulders and we had no trouble negotiating it with our 14000 lb 5th wheel. The $28 rate is before our 20% senior discount. We will stay again.

This is our 5th time at this former KOA park. It honors the Good Sam discount now. Our 1st time was in June 2011 and it has gotten better on each visit. We have stayed in 7 different sites. On this visit we were in a long term back-in site and the rate reflects their monthly charge (30 days) for a 50 amp site. It was $627, and that includes a state tax of $75. The asphalt site was in fair shape and almost level. The surfaces of the sites we have stayed in have been fair to good. Some are gravel, some are asphalt, some have concrete walks, but it has been a while since the sites have been worked on. A lot of the concrete is broken and a lot of the asphalt sites need resurfacing. There are a few sites that look unusable. Water and electric and sewer has always worked fine. There has been a lot of asphalt patching and the roads are much better. The Wi-Fi has recently improved too. We have always been able to get a good shot with our DirecTV portable dish. Verizon 4G works fairly well too. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. When we pulled in we had a problem with the site next to us and as soon as we brought it to the attention of the office, they took care of it. There are some negatives. Propane sales stopped being available while we were there. They have a large tank and we have purchased propane many times. Management told us there was a leak, it was shut down and that it would be at least 2 weeks before it was repaired. The only dog "run" is a quite small fenced area on the extreme north side. It would be nice if there was another one on the south side. The park cable is very bad. There are signs up acknowledging that and stating that it will be upgraded soon. Long term residents told us that the signs had been up since April. We will stay again.

This is our 3rd time here. We love being right on the river and we never get tired of watching all the barges. The well spaced pull-through sites on the river are concrete pads and electric and water have always worked fine. The pads are long and level, and our 33 foot 5th wheel and extended cab dually fit just fine. There are two sections of pull-through sites. The one on the south end is for 5th wheels. It is laid out so the rear of the 5th wheel faces the river. The section at the north end is for motor coaches and is laid out so the front of the coach faces the river. Wi-Fi is only fair and at best it is slow, and sometimes doesn't work at all. But they have FREE laundry with modern washers and dryers. The staff is very nice and helpful. We will stay again.
Date of Stay: May, 2014
We stayed two nights, in site 17. It was a level, gravel site, backed right up to the river and all utilities worked well. Wi-Fi also worked fair to good. The site was nicely shaded, but we were able to get our DirecTV dish working. We used the laundry facilities and they were clean and worked well. The staff was friendly and we would stay again.
Date of Stay: April, 2014
We liked this park and stayed 2 nights in a 33 foot 5th wheel. It was serene and bucolic, surrounded by farm land - cows included. Our site was a gravel pull through with a picnic table on a concrete slab - 50 amp, water (good pressure-used a regulator), sewer and cable TV. Very nice. The staff was friendly, it was tidy and quiet with easy access to the interstate. The bathrooms and showers looked very clean, although we did not use them. The laundry also looked very good. Our Verizon signal was good. Our only complaint was the Wifi. They have it and we saw at least 3 antennas in the park, but connectivity was very poor, intermittent and unreliable! It really is time for RV Parks to have decent wifi. It should be as important and as reliable as electric. We would stay here again.
Date of Stay: June, 2012
We stayed 1 night and it was very nice. 50 amp, water, sewer for $20. Everything was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was a gravel back in with a concrete pad for the picnic table. There were trees and we did not try to put out our dish. Our only problem was finding the entrance. No Wi-Fi at the park but our Verizon 3G worked well. We were in a 33 foot rig and would stay again for sure.
