Second visit to park, ranger and hosts are extremely accommodating. Park is only 3 years old and most of the trees are young, however being close to Cleveland at an elevation of 1100.00ft. Makes for comfortable mornings and evenings.
Date of Stay: November, 2015
Great campground and close to Huntsville about 1,000 ft. above the city. The campground only has 30amp service with one loop having full hookups. The weather was great however the wind at night gusted between 25-30mph. Staff and hosts were helpful and friendly..... Monte Sano is our preferred choice to stay when the weather is good while visiting Huntsville.

Second trip this year, we enjoyed the fall colors and the craft fair in in Bell Buckle. The campground is in good condition with the hosts being pleasant and helpful. Please note that the utility hookups are on the wrong side so make sure you bring adequate length of hose. Loop C has the most shade, however it is not on the water.
Date of Stay: September, 2015
We stayed in one of four sites that have full hookups (these are first come first serve). The hosts are great, the rangers came through the park on a regular basis and everything was clean. The fishing however was less than expected, probably a little early for the shad run, but that's fishing!! The 28.00 per night reflects a 4.00 per night for full hookups.

This a new park and it will take time for the trees to grow in. Please keep in mind that even though this is a state park the park does sit on a COE lake. The rangers and staff were pleasant, scenery was outstanding, the upper Chattahoochee had a good flow making the kayak fishing enjoyable. Plenty of things to do and see from, Cleveland, Helen, Gainesville, and Dawsonville. Would definitely stay here again.
Date of Stay: May, 2015
Stayed the first week of May to fish Lake Normandy and float the Duck River. Campground was in good shape, however the bathrooms had timed water in the shower and sinks which made it hard to use. Camp hosts and other campers were both friendly, helpful, and helpful. We were told continued work on the bathrooms are planned and additional work on the campsites were planned. We had a great time and will return.

For Fall colors late October is a great time for Cotton Hill campground. COE ha done a great job with the electrical service, lots of transformers, panels, and no voltage drop.RV sites in the Old Mill and Pine sections have sanitary. Host were great and accommodating. Lots of wind while we were there and limited time to fish. The park has slight grades and the entire loop around all three sections equals about a 1.5 mile loop great for walking or biking.
Date of Stay: October, 2014
Park is in good condition, rest rooms and showers were clean. Roads were kept clean despite heavy wind and rain during our stay. Carters Lake was accessible from the ramp in the campground. Hosts as usual were friendly and accommodating. Please note that there are only three full hookup sites, however most of the sites have both 30/50 amp service. One of best campgrounds (COE) we stay in.

This campground is closed
Date of Stay: September, 2014
We would probably not use this campground again; grounds were not well kept and of the three front desk staff only one was helpful. The rest rooms were dated, however they still need to be cleaned.
Date of Stay: August, 2014
Park is in good condition. Roads are paved but the sites are crushed gravel. Rained two of the three days and we noticed water running through our site not around it. The park is close to Huntsville but do not expect cell service; it is not available. We would camp here again.
Date of Stay: May, 2014
Still our favorite campground; however the restroom/showers were not clean; and we decided to use the shower in the camper. Other than than the restrooms being unkempt (who knows, they may clean them next week) the hosts were great and the sites were in great shape. Keep in mind the campground has contract services and are not the responsibility of the hosts.
Date of Stay: March, 2014
We stayed in the PINE loop this time. Beautiful view of the lake and the grounds were in goods shape. A couple of things to beware of in this loop. Several of the sites has the sewer a foot or so above grade of the the pad. The road and several of the campsite entrances had crumbled asphalt at best; however, the pads were in good shape and fairly level. I would have given this campgrounds a 9 or 10 except for sewer and road surface. Overall this is a great place to camp which is standard for COE campgrounds.
Date of Stay: October, 2013
Nice park on the lower end of lake wheeler; we stayed the middle week of October and enjoyed the park and the fishing. The park staff and hosts were friendly, however this is the second time in a row that the RR' s were not very clean, they were in good shape but not to the usual standard of cleaning everyday.
Date of Stay: September, 2013
Good campground and the staff is friendly. Loop A is the best for separation of campsites, however no fires are allowed in this loop. Restrooms are clean and maintained. Did not understand the boat ramp, they need a floating platform to tie up to when launching. Excellent walking around the roads, keep I'm mind these roads have hills. Hiawassee is a fun place to visit and you will not find a lot of brand restaurants, mostly local flavor. We stayed four days and will mark this campground for a return visit. The campground is run by the county and is better maintained than most Georgia State Parks.
