4 Parks near Albany, Georgia
Jan 2017 - $34.00
Changed our trip heading to Florida to come through Albany to help Samaritan's Purse with some clean up from the recent storm. Glad we did. This is a very nice place with very spacious sites. Large, wide, big concrete pads, some shade, good utilities and wonderful owners. - padre

This campground is mostly occupied by long term campers with only a few sites for transients. Office staff is outstanding. We arrived for just an overnight but found upon setting up that we had a mechanical issue. Campground is associated with the RV Dealer next door, and office called them in our behalf. We also had an urgent medical condition and the staff assisted us in finding an urgent care clinic. Our overnight stay turned into 10 nights until the needed part could arrive and the repair completed. Even though there are many long term campers, the sites were neat and not cluttered with junk. This campground is heavily treed and our pull thru site had a large concrete pad. Ants were a problem from all the trees and someone came out and sprayed our site. One day it looked like they fogged for mosquitos. There is a nice pond at the front of the campground. US19/US82 is a busy road so it might be a problem for the light sleeper. Verizon phone worked well and we did not use the campground password protected wifi. Utilities worked well. Good Sam discount was available for 4 nights and they do have weekly and monthly rates. We would stay here again. - roadking

Beautiful park! Nice long level site on concrete pad under a canopy of very tall trees. Great utilities. Made reservations a few days ago. Our site was roped off with instructions taped to front door of office which is closed on Sunday. - The Griffins

This review is about the campground, not the park overall. The campground is okay. It's a horseshoe design with the campers setup along the outside. The full hook up sites have a large holding tank to dump into, not a true sewer connection. Fortunately, the honey wagon did not come by while we were there. It didn't feel like a state park, more like a poorly designed KOA without any KOA niceties. We've been to several GA State Parks and have been very impressed. This one was not impressive.
Full hookup sites were not available, so we got a standard site, water and electric only for 2 nights. Our site was a buddy site, which is a neat idea if we were camping with friends or family. Some sites are spacious, but lots of them are not if the buddy sites are used. We were right on top of the site to our left. It seemed like there were a lot of long termers.
Our site was almost level. We needed about an inch lift up front. Side to side was fine. It looked like most sites were level. The road was compacted dirt and the sites were grass. We did not have a picnic table, but the host brought us one quickly; fire ring had trash in it.
The camp host was great, very visible and helpful when needed. The bathhouse was old, but clean. It would be nice if they removed the peeling paint from the ceiling. Lots of bugs in the bathhouse.
The park overall was nice with a fishing lake, small zoo, BMX bike track, Remote Control car race track, great playground for young kids, frisbee course, biking and horse riding trails and plenty of pavilions for parties. We enjoyed the park. If we lived nearby, we probably would use the park a lot, but I doubt we'd return for the campground.
The over the air TV channels were limited. NBC came in pretty well, but it did cut out from time to time. Their brochure mentions free WiFi, but I didn't find it. I didn't look hard for it, but it wasn't available at our site. Verizon's 4G was strong. - mgirardo

Everything you read about this place is true. We found this place when we broke down on US19. Came recommended by a sheriff 's officer. Stayed 3 nights. Broke down on Saturday, had to wait until Monday to get our truck fixed. Pretty Much Had The Place To ourselves. Will be back,this time I'm going to the zoo.
The sites were well maintained all grass. Sun could shine in but many tall pine trees allowed it shine sparsely. Roads were well maintained gravel. I didn't notice a designated pet area but park was pet friendly - forty4san

We totally love this campground. It really is a hidden gem. We have grandkids that go with us often and you can't find a better place. Great zoo, great playground, lots of places to ride bikes, they even have horse trails, and mountain bike trails. There isn't cable tv but the local channels pick up fine. The wifi is excellent which more than makes up for no cable. I love the setup of the campground. Most sites face into a circle so it is easy to be social if you want to. We love lot #14. We have a 40 foot MH and it is easy to get in and out of plus there is alot of space on the right side to setup. It does not have sewer hook ups on this particular lot but if you are on there for a couple of days it doesn't matter. We dump when we go in and dump when we go out and it's perfect! The only reason I didn't give it all 10's is there is only one shower in the bath house and it is hard to really dry off successfully the way it is setup, but it is as clean as it can be and the staff is awesome. - SandyandMark

We pulled into this place and immediately thought, "uh oh." They don't accept Good Sam or any other discount memberships, which is a red flag to me to start. It is NOT big rig friendly, but the host told us to pull up to a spot about 5 feet from a small trailer that was parked next to us. No room to do anything. The 50 amp electrical pedestal had black all around it which indicated a blow out or short of some kind earlier. I would not hook up to it. All the parking spots are sandy. We left. - Steve and Kathy Burnett

This was a great park for a one night stay, which worked out fine for the way that we usually travel. The site was a little tight but the water/sewer/electric/cable were all easy to access. We were just off of a main highway but since we were towards the back, it was very quiet. The interior roads are all gravel and there was plenty of room to maneuver our rig with a car in tow. The park was heavily wooded which was great for shade, but made satellite access a little difficult. The staff were friendly and we had an escort to our site. I would definitely stay there again when in the area. - rgatijnet

This campground is pretty old and pretty run down. We stayed here one night at the Passport rate but I doubt we'll ever return. The only pull-through site big enough for our rig was right on a busy and noisy highway. The service post at our site was old and falling apart. There were no circuit breakers to turn off the power while we plugged in. The 50-amp plug didn't work and the 15-amp plug showed a hot ground wire. The 30-amp plug had just been replaced and worked OK. The park has narrow, rutty roads and is filled with old, permanent trailers. I can't think of anything nice to say about this place. - Johnnyonthespot

Devencrest An older park with some sections out of service and many permanent residents. We were directly across from the office. Showers were adequate but not well maintained. Excellent Wi-Fi. Good cable. Due to the layout and maintenance it is difficult to tell what is a functional camping site and how it is entered. Campers should arrive well before the office closes (5PM) so you have assistance in finding a site. While you may get a big rig in and out I would not consider this park designed for big rigs. Enough traffic noise that we had to sleep with our windows closed. We stayed 2 days at the PA Rate. - rossby

We stayed here one night at the Passport America rate. Our site was OK, but I think it is the only site we could stay in. The rest of the park is old, run down RVs and trailers in the trees. The park is about five miles from town and the only place to eat was a Subway a quarter mile away. Our experience was OK with good Wi-Fi and cable for $15, but probably wouldn't stay here again. - bobgarrett
