Busy park just north of Atlanta and a short drive from I-75. Access to the park is fine, but parking at registration is tight for an RV. I had to park along the side of the road to register as cars were parked in the limited RV spaces. I stayed in a pull-through site and the access loop was a little narrow. Most sites are on a slight rise and fairly close to each other. Nice hiking and plenty of wildlife to observe. No wifi in the park that I could find. Faint train noises but not an issue in my opinion. I will be happy to stay here again.

Great park, though the state access roads from the highway are narrow with no shoulder. The park has only been opened three years and shows it. All sites are level with a solid gravel bed. The areas around each site have a good gravel cover which is important to prevent orange footprints in the RV from the red clay in the area. Nice hiking trails throughout the park. Wi-Fi is available at registration and a weak cell phone signal (Sprint network) was available. Would be happy to stay again.

I spent a very enjoyable 3 days here. The park is a little out of the way, but worth the trip. There are a large number of pull-through sites but most will need at least some leveling. Clean restrooms and everything looked well maintained. No Wi-Fi at registration and no cell phone coverage (Sprint network).

I am a big fan of Georgia state parks and have stayed at many of them. This park is a bit below the average for Georgia. I recommend arriving via route 23 (west entrance) rather than route 80 as I did. Signs to registration from the route 80 entrance are non-existent, and once registration is found you will find no RV compatible parking or a way to get turned around (needed if arriving via route 80) to get back to the campsites. The roads in the park are narrow and not suited to letting two RVs pass each other. The sites are level and almost all are shaded, but are muddy after rain and need a fresh layer of gravel. No cell phone signal at all (Sprint network) but Wi-Fi is available at the registration building.

I have stayed at this park twice now for 3 days each time and have enjoyed it both times. It is clean and the facilities are well kept, though the men's showers in the Phase I campground could use some bleach for the mildew (typical Florida). I have stayed in the Phase I area both times but will likely go to the Phase II area if I stay again due to the amount of traffic in Phase I using the boat ramp. Phase II appears to be very quiet.

Reasonable campground. It seems mostly oriented to the golfing crowd. Some of the campsites were skinny (but level). Restrooms were clean, but the men's only had a single toilet. The park location was in walking distance to the small town and we had some local youth wander through the campground. Wi-Fi located at the registration office.

While definitely not a destination park, this is a nice and clean park with convenient access to I-20. The town is very small (I hesitate to even call it a town) and the local tourism is limited to the A. H. Stephens Museum (he was the VP of the Confederate States). We spent about 90 minutes on a house tour and the museum ($5/adult). Plenty of walking paths/roads in the park. We will happily stay here again, but only as a stop-over. No Wi-Fi and limited cell signal coverage for AT&T (occasional one bar) and Sprint (zippo).

About 10 minutes from I-95. Plenty of sites and most of them are pull through. Roads are a little narrow in spots; could be tight for a big rig. Most sites are level, but some get muddy with rain; could use some gravel in spots. Only one dumpster area for the campground; they need more trash cans at strategic intervals. Restrooms were clean. No cable TV but a few local stations were available by antenna. Grocery shopping is a few minutes from the park.

We stayed here for three days and found the park to be friendly and enjoyable. Sites were clean and mostly level, and the single restroom was likewise clean and in good repair. Plenty of bear-proof trash cans. Bug activity was fine at this time of the year. We took the 90 minute boat tour ($15/adult) and recommend it if you do not bring your own boat. Plenty of gator activity, so keep your pets away from the water's edge. No AT&T or Sprint coverage, but Wi-Fi is available at the registration office.

My first review and first night out with our new to us travel trailer for two nights. Entrance to the campground was easy, and the registration process was smooth with a very friendly staff. Plenty of room on the paved streets, and there were a few "pull-through" sites (actually half-loops) available. All of the sites we looked at were level, clean, and had plenty of room. The restroom and showers were clean. Very enjoyable.
