There is also a one time $5 parking fee. Paved roads with mostly dirt or gravel pads; with raised concrete pads for picnic tables. Very shady with mostly hardwoods means no satellite reception; however, area #1 has very basic cable, whose analog choices are the same as you can get in digital OTR. The sites are mainly pull through and quite a number with 50 amp. There is also 20 or so premium sites with gravel and are hug and the park is certainly big rig compatible while still offering nice tent only sites. It is not close to the Atlantic ocean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Verizon service was 3 to 4 bars.

I stayed for a month, but wish I hadn't. The first two sites they assigned me couldn't be identified as actual sites by two park personnel. I finally pick one and told them, but they never officially showed me in that site. Many sites will take extra hoses to accomplish hookup. The bathrooms are old and nasty and which I did not use them. Then there is the office staff. They are friendly, but totally inept. It is like one hand doesn't know what the other is doing. Every time you call, you get a different answer and a different price. There might have been 40 campers there when I stayed and with their supposedly 900 sites they could not find a site for me that was even possible that a normal person would stay in. To say the sites are close together is an understatement. Certainly some people will not be able to extend awnings. The sites are not regularly cleaned such as when a camper leaves. Mine had debris and trash scattered about and was still there when I left. I suppose they expect the next camper to clean up. The main roads are paved and good, but sites are sand, dirt and leaves (and trash). Some of the lesser access roads are dirt as well. The water seems good and the pressure is excellent. No problem with the power either. The provided cable TV is OK. 22 channels, which is sufficient, but some stations are snowy.

North east Georgia is truly beautiful and this park is very nice. The only complaint I have it that US 441 is fairly close and trucks using "Jake" brakes were very loud. This park is operated by Georgia Power, but supported by state park (DNR) rangers, this means it costs a little less to camp there that typical of Georgia. The hosts were very competent and friendly. The sites looked like they were recently graveled. Roads were paved. Water was OK, but pressure low. Not problem with the power. This is a typical state park in that it does not have wifi, cable or sewer hookups. The area has so many things to do and at very little cost or even free. Many water falls to see in the area. If you want to hike the gorge floor (and it hasn't rained) make sure you get to the interpretive center no later than 8:15AM... they limit permits (which are free) to 100 per day. I recommend TGSP highly.
