Though the staff was friendly, this is a very old KOA that needs some serious upgrading. Sites were short, turns were tight, and there were quite a few graveyard units parked which really detracted from the place. WiFi was either very slow, or with no connection at all. We probably won't return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The site we had was a pull through- it was pretty level, with reasonably good access to it. We chose 30 amp because 50 amp is a few dollars more and we didn't need it. The Wi-Fi, which was my main reason for choosing this campground was good. I had no issues, other than it was sometimes a little slow, but not bad. I made the bad decision to do laundry. The laundry room was disgustingly dirty. Leftover soap was hardened onto the washers, and they smelled like mold. They also didn't hold enough water- less than half a tub. The swimming pool was fine- the water was so warm it wasn't refreshing, but that is no one's fault. Would I stay here again? No. I would look for someplace else next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good for an overnight stay. I had a 32ft MH and was towing. Overall 46 feet, and had no trouble with the pull through site. Hostess was quite helpful with information on traffic through Atlanta. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground should not advertise Big Rig access for Motorhomes 40' or more. This is a very old campground that has not been maintained. We were led to our site on dirt roads with tight turns and tree limbs brushing the top and sides of the Motorhome. Poison Ivy surrounded the hook ups. We had to disconnect our tow vehicle so we could back up and then maneuver forward to get out of our site. Again trees scratched the top & sides. We had to do a 3 point turn to exit the lane our site was on. As full time RV'ers, this is by far the worst KOA we have stayed in across the USA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great host couples, including ham radio operators. This campground has improved over the last two years: better WiFi, more gravel on sites, more supplies in store, spruced up grounds, and friendlier attendants with a willingness to please, even to previewing sites with you in a golf cart. There is a little road noise, but nothing terribly loud. Easy access from I-85. Gas station at the exit including diesel with easy access. Great cable TV. It's definitely one of our favorite campgrounds and we'll be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed a week using KOA Anderson's "Hot Deal". The experience was positive right from the check-in. The owners are enthusiastic about the day-to-day operation and this was reflected in their workamper couple. Everything was clean, neat and in good repair. The CG is convenient to shopping and restaurants. We had family staying here, too and the time spent with them was great. All in all this is a campground that not only offers a lot, but delivers as promised. We will go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, clean and well maintained campground. Restrooms and showers very clean. Staff friendly and able to give information about the local area. Price very reasonable. Good location. Easy on/off interstate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The biggest positive for this park is the friendly staff. They are especially helpful and considerate. The park is heavily shaded with fairly level sites. As previous reviews mentioned, the sites are small and close together. A few are gravel, but most are sandy and very messy when it rains. The roads in the park are fairly narrow and some of the turns are sharp. The cable and WiFi are good. It’s a safe, secure setting not far from the Interstate. We didn’t look at the pool, but the miniature golf course was in some disrepair. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Although this is a fairly small park for big rigs, it has great people running it, and has become a favorite place for us to stay while visiting family in that neck of the woods. Always clean, with friendly folks all around (mostly Clemson fans). Pet friendly with containers and baggies in case you forget yours. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are clean and fairly level. Management is nice. Sites need gravel. When it rains mud is a problem, and it is hard to keep it out of your RV. We have stayed in much worse and a few better. With gravel on the sites I would have no complaints. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great spot for an overnight stay. Sites are small and limited number of long pull thrus. Owners are obviously trying to make it better. Pool not open when we were there because of heavy rains in prior days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Other KOA's could take a lesson from this campground. New gravel on roads and most sites providing good driving surface and level sites. Most sites are very wide and spacious with plenty of trees for shade. Not friendly to rooftop satellite, but the park has a very large selection of cable TV. Convenient to Lake Hartwell, Anderson, Clemson and surrounding area. We would definitely return to this park. Our rate is based on a 1-week stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Restrooms/showers were new and were very nice with both in a private room, laundry was also nice and large, would have rated it higher but roads needed grading due to rain run off. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient location to I-85. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Sites are standard sized, but adequate for most units. Bath house is clean and equipped. Some permanent residents live in tents and walk around in various stages of undress. One site, on the top of the hill, had small children playing and a permanent male tent resident appeared only in see through pajama bottoms. No extra charge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rustic but clean park full of trees. Many fairly large pull through sites, paved in dirt or gravel. Our site was fairly level but others looked like they may not be level. Cable and Wi-Fi worked OK People are very friendly and helpful. Woman took us to the site and made sure that everything was OK before leaving. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This KOA was very clean, as well as the Restrooms extremely clean. The owners went out of their way to assist us upon arrival. She escorted us to our site, and made sure it would accommodate us for the Night! We will go back again, we will recommend this park to friends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean well kept park. The only drawback is the $2.00 per day extra for cable, but offset by free wifi. Restrooms extremely clean, Pool is small, but easily accessible. Lots of permanent residents, some getting out of control with yard debris and tarp covers over the roof. Will go back again and recommend park to friends. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Well off the interstate so there was no traffic noise. Office staff very helpful and friendly. We were led to our site by an escort and she checked to make sure the power and water were working. Nice roads and wooded lots. I highly recommend this campground. It is what camping should be. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Okay campground for overnight stay which is what we did as we were just passing thru. The other campground we stopped before this one was a dump and we didn't feel like driving too much further as it had been a long day as it was, so we paid the $30 rate and stayed at this KOA. Don't feel it was worth the price and would try to find someplace else if passing thru again, but it was okay in a pinch. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a great stopping off overnight park, close to interstate. The owners were friendly, the park attractive and clean. It was close to the lake as well. We camped in December. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful piece of real estate. As an RV campground, it is very basic. No septic and no 50 amps. There are several camping loops with dirt RV pads arranged in a circle. Many spots have lovely views of the lake (Hartwell). There are lots of mosquitoes, lots of deer and lots of guys drinking beer (there is a no-alcohol rule but no one pays any attention). It is far from the interstate for an overnight stop, but it is very scenic. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a solid place to camp - decent sites, good rates, beautiful views, etc. Would camp here again. But there wasn't anything to make it stand out so I gave it a above average rating. BENIFITS: Easy access to a lake that is never really busy (even on July 4 when we went). Rangers are very helpful. Bath house was very clean and well kept. Great playgrounds. Gathering area overlooking water near ranger station was great place to hang out with family. Many lake access sites. Sites well shaded. CONS: Sites too narrow - your fire pit will be .5-1feet away from an extended awning if not under it. The sites need to be regraveled - very fine "break dust" like soil gets everywhere and turns to a lot of mud when rains. RECOMMENDATIONS: Loop 3, Site 57, 56, 55 are all fantastic sites on a peninsula overlooking water. All well shaded and close to bath house. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We enjoy camping at Sadlers Creek State Park. We have stayed here twice in our camper and once in a tent on a Boy Scout trip. The restrooms are always clean. Loop 1 sites are very close together with not much shade. We have stayed in Loops 1 and 3. Loop 3 was definitely our favorite. At sites 52 & 53 we could easily see our boat from our camper. Most waterfront sites have very steep access to the water. The playgrounds are nice but are not close to the campsites. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall nice campground. We had a site in loop #1 site #11 at first but it was VERY narrow and short. We could not squeeze our 24' trailer in this one so we moved to site #27 in loop #2 which was much better although not water front. I would avoid loop 1 as there is not any shade and the water is down so low that there is about a 6' cliff before getting to the water. There are several playgrounds and the grounds are well kept. I would stay here again. Cell service was acceptable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground was very well shaded. Easy to pull in and hook up. The bathrooms were extremely clean and well serviced. Bring your lake gear as most sites have easy access to the lake. Will definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground and site on Lake Hartwell. Well kept, rangers were friendly and helpful. Best for weekdays if no children, although no issues on weekend either. Nice park to walk with the dogs, see nature and enjoy the quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is very clean and in a great location on Lake Hartwell. However, the sites have little to no privacy because they are about 20 foot apart. We were barely able to fit our 28 foot travel trailer in our designated spot. On a positive, you can reserve individual spots which is something that I wish the Georgia parks will start doing eventually. There were no playgrounds or common areas that were in the campgrounds which is a deal breaker for us. The check-in is a little tricky as well. We will not return to this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed two weeks, the maximum, at this camp ground and truly enjoyed it. Virtually all sites are right on Lake Hartwell, and if you have a boat or a jet ski, you can pull right up to your site. The sites are spacious and well appointed. The only negatives were that there were no sewer hookups, and TV reception was non-existent. We stayed near the swimming area as our grandchildren were here, and it was clean and smooth with a small playground near by. We will stay here again and enjoy a beautiful lake. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very nice location, and the lake was awesome. As posted in past reviews there is an invasion force of ants which would not relent. Then the yellow jackets come by air. The lake was low so the mud is knee deep on the shore line. I called this the land, sea, and air invasion. The bathhouse was also a bit far from site 50. Overall the place is really nice if you want to fight off the ants. Well kept and clean. I do not like the fact you have to be in by 10:00 pm or as I was told you are not getting in, even if you're already set up. Oh, just down the road is Big Water Marine; you can rent a pontoon boat and cruise the lake which is breath taking. Another good thing is you're close to several stores for supplies but still feel you're in the middle of no place at the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I feel a need to mention that a previous reviewer clearly identified the wrong campground, as Springfield is a very nice COE campground and not open in March so reviewer could not have stayed here. We have camped Springfield COE twice in nice sites but both times the ANTS were very industrious. First thing to do when arriving is ant proof your camp area and your TV. We use Comet brand cleaner and it works well. We stayed in site #18 and it was quite nice and private for a 34 ft trailer max with great lake views. I think sites #28-35 are very nice as well on a peninsula but much closer together. Lots of people here bring their camper and boat/jet skis as most sites like ours are lake front and people park their boats right at the sites for the duration of the camp stay. Bath house near our site seemed newer than the other bath houses. I think it is tough to beat the COE campgrounds on the lakes between Ga and SC for nice lake front camping. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was a real joy to stay in. We had a huge flat site, with a patio area, large picnic table, fire pit and nice BBQ. We also had a little dock on the water which was great. The site was heavily treed and very private. The campground was VERY quiet and the people at the gate were friendly and helpful. Reserve America is very efficient. We decided to stay another night, called up the site on our phone (while watching a beautiful sunset) and reserved the site for another day. Our pass was waiting for us at the gate in the morning. Amazing. Highly recommended and we will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was a joke. We refused to even stay here after we had paid. Has red clay dirt, and nothing level that I could see. We will never return and would advise anyone that the photo's are not what we saw. I really wished it had been nicer because we really wanted to stay and enjoy some fishing, but there was no way we would park our RV here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice large, level site close to the beach, bathhouse, and playground. Easy access to the boat ramp, and you can bring your boat without an additional fee. Nice park personnel; they let me drive through the day before and choose a site. You can't take your pet to the beach or playground due to state laws, but the ranger who told us was nice about it. Will stay again in a few weeks. Love it and the beautiful setting! We camped here in a Tent.
Like most COE parks this one is beautiful. Roads are asphalt and sites are hard packed gravel, level, wide, have 30/50 amps, water, fire rings, BBQ equipment for cooking, tons of trees, and well keep. On lake Harwell. Lake level is way down due to no rain in long time now. Very quit. Lots of playground for kids. Staff was very nice at check in. Bathhouse look new and were spotless as well. Gate was locked at night. Dump station was super size and you can dump on way in or out with no problems. DTV will pick up number of good channels. Verizon cell phone worked well here. Price was on Golden Age Pass. We will return anytime. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is so close to everything yet feels tucked away from the world. We had a sight that was quiet, private, and quite large. Okay, it was huge. I have never seen sites so big! Hartwell Lake is down and muddy, but that's not the fault of the campground. The staff was friendly, and the facilities are relatively new. I felt comfortable enough to walk by myself at dusk, and sighting two large beautiful deer only feet from us was breath-taking. We had a massive ant problem on our site, but we're in the South in the summer in the woods. That's nothing unusual. We would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Have stayed before and enjoy campground. This time we had trouble with ants. Had to go out and get ant powder, and even had park maintenance come spray site. Didn't help. Campground host said they had been fighting this problem all summer. Noticed several sites had powder down for ants too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean good large spaces. Quiet well-protected for children. Good playgrounds with sand base. All bathrooms and showers are cleaned and stocked daily. We have enjoyed this campground for the last 3 years, no matter what time we go. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Another great COE park in SC. Stayed for the weekend and wanted to stay longer. Had a site on lake with a great view. Park was very clean with cleaning crew coming through every day. Would give a 10 if they were open year round. Will go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this campground. We spent several weeks here in the summer of 2006 and plan to camp here again this summer. The sites are large, many are on the water. Lots of wildlife, deer, geese, ducks, heron, etc. are seen in the park. This is a Corp of Engineer Park. Lots of ants so be prepared for that. Wish it was open year round and we'd stay here even more often. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very nice park if you like old-time camping. Very rustic, big trees, mulched roadways. It was very quiet with a beautiful view of the lake with the marina directly across the lake. One of the best sunsets over a lake I've ever seen. We camped here in a Motorhome.
