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. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Beautiful, well maintained park in a wonderful lake setting. Our site had a wooden deck with picnic table and a view of the lake. 4 sites have FHUs, but ours did not. The sites are very high above the lake so access is difficult. Very quiet setting, and although the access road has numerous twists and turns and is fairly steep our motorhome had no difficulty with entry. Rate reflects senior discount "Golden Age" pass. We would definitely return here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another great COE campground. Carters Lake is beautiful and more tranquil than Lake Lanier. Some sites have very nice decks built around them since the sites are on steep areas. Great parking pads, wonderful place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the best COE campground we have been to. The campground is beautiful with most sites on the lake. The camp hosts are are very friendly and helpful, I wish all COE's were like this one. If you camp here be sure to go down the road to the visitors center and the dam park. The view from the dam is breathtaking. We got a great signal on our ATT phones. We'll be back in the fall :) The price we paid was with our senior pass. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Camped the last week of April; this is still one of the best campgrounds we have stayed in, both clean and well maintained. The view of the lake is excellent. Ellijay is about 15 minutes away, and the spotted bass fishing was fantastic. Campground staff was friendly; the county sheriff patrolled on the weekends. We would highly recommend the campground and the Ellijay area of Georgia. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Past reviews, though three years old indicated this was a great park: they were right. This park could be used to benchmark other parks. A couple of notes; 1. I-575 out of Atlanta to state rd 382 is the best way to go 2. There is cell service so if you are setup to use your phone on your laptop then you have three bars of 3G service. We pulled a ranger bass boat and a popup camper. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is the nicest Core Of Engineers Campground I have ever been in. They have just finished reworking all of the sites and have done a wonderful job with very level concrete pads and our site had a wooden deck overlooking the lake. Any one visiting this COE campground should visit Helen, Ga, as this is a wonderful town fashioned after a small Bavarian Village. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful campground. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return often. The parking sites are tight and may be a challenge for slideouts. Our tow vehicle just fit in the driveway. Additional parking is available at the boat ramp. I think all sites are on the lake. However, climbing the hill back up to your site after accessing the lake may be a challenge. The drive to access the campground is a mountain road. Be prepared for sharp inclines, declines, and turns. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Doll Mt. Campground is a nice place to get away from it all for a few days. The campground sits high on a bluff overlooking Carters Lake but the trees have grown so much that you can just see it through the trees. Plus sitting on the bluff makes lake access a little difficult from the camp sites. Other than that, it is a nice, quiet campground with plenty of space between sites. Sites 27-32 have nice decks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here before we bought our pop-up. The dedicated tent sites are close together and have no utilities but pit toilets are nearby. The bath house is a long walk or short drive. The RV sites seem to have lots of privacy. Most have wooden decks that are great for your awning to go over. All sites have grills, fire rings, and picnic tables. There is also a boat ramp inside the park. Overall, it is a nice place and I'd like to go back with the pop-up! We camped here in a Tent.
One of our favorite campgrounds. We go at least 4 times a year. The sights we stay on have a deck overlooking the lake. The only negatives are no sewer hookup and no lake access. The playground area is minimal, but we go to boat on the lake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We found this campground listed in another campground directory. A one word summary - WOW! The scenery going into the park is great. Many of the sites are located on the side of a hill that overlooks Carters Lake. This park is about a 10 minute drive south east of Ellijay, GA, just off of Hwy 382. The entrance road is pretty steep and curvy. But, I didn't have any problems. Our site was a long concrete pad and almost perfectly level. I think our camper site was actually longer than listed on the reservation web site. There were also some compact gravel sites. We had a very large wooden deck that came right up to the concrete pad. A long bench seat formed the long wall on this deck. The kids loved playing on the deck. We were not able to get satellite TV here as the site was on the north side of a steep hill. Nevertheless, there was plenty of scenery such that we didn't need TV. We will certainly camp here again when going through this area. We might even make a special effort just to come back here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful park with playgrounds for kids and a boat ramp and picnic area on the lake. Sites are quite large with concrete patios and crushed rock tent pads. Many sites have good views of lake, and there are some premium sites with wooden decks. Park is 9 miles from Ellijay, and it is only a few more miles to several apple orchards. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A really nice area on the lake. Lots are quite steep to back into. Restrooms/showers are far enough to have to drive to. We didn't see how a big rig could get into any of the lots. Swim area not within walking distance of the camping area, necessitating a drive to reach it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I normally like GA COE campgrounds but this one was not as nice as the other campgrounds. A lot of the sites are too close together and are sort of stacked up so that you can have another camper above or below you. There are a few premium sites at the end of the peninsula that could be great, but we were on site 6 which felt cramped. The CG has a beach which was okay but small and with a lot of leaves and debris on the lake floor. There is a really nice mountain bike trail, Amadahy Trail, a few miles before you enter the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects Senior pass. This is a tough park to rate. Roads are steep and sites do have some issues (some of them) in backing in. But lots of room and great views. Restrooms were great, but a tough hike up hill, particularly for tenters. Beach was good. Problem for us was we had camped at a COE site in VA that had easy access to water from most sites and here, it was rocky and tough climb. So we were disappointed: boo hoo for us. It was a long drive for us to get here so after all that, not what we had hoped. If you want a quiet get-away without crowds, noise and lots of pleasant nature, this is a great spot. Quality of COE campgrounds is good, highly recommended. Just be aware, this is CAMPING, not RV resorting. Yes, that's what we like, just hoped to have a private beach and right out of our door. Other than that, really good. Oh, bring your own firewood; they don't have any for sale in the campground, so it's a 8 mile drive to the closest store that sells firewood. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The CG was clean, people friendly. The only problem was that some sites had a bad dip in the center of them which made backing in TT or other rigs hit ground, other sites were opposite of what your entrance / exit door is from camper, and the some sites were tricky to back into. Noticed lots of groves from bottoming out on the ground. Beach was nice. ADA spots were accessible. Playground. People drove by too fast on paved road which was scary with children on bikes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love this campground since it is close to our home. Most of the sites have a water view, and are very enclosed by trees. The fishing is good...when there is more water in the lake. The restrooms/bathhouse are alway clean, but could use an update. There is a guardhouse to monitor entrances..and the local sheriff makes drive thrus to monitor everything. It's also very nice to be able to reserve your favorite spot...which so many campgrounds don't allow. I would definite recommend Woodring Campground. Also, if you like to hike...they have opened the Amadahy Trail just down the road from the campground. It is mostly lakeside hiking and you see a lot of nature. Happy Camping! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in site 27, which was very steep and difficult for our big rig, but after several attempts we finally got situated. Once there, the view was fabulous! Right next to the lake. Our friends stayed next to us in site 28 and it has a huge wooden deck that looks out over the lake (wonderful to sit on in the evenings and watch the sun go down). This campground is very nice and spacious, but a little out of the way for visiting local restaurants and sight-seeing. We did a lot of fishing and just relaxing while here. We will definitely return. Book early cause these 2 sites are VERY popular! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
