This campground is now a KOA and it very nice and clean. All sites pull through and our site was nice and shady in the late afternoon. Clean Laundry area and exercise room. Immaculate restrooms. They have a nice golf course and they were offering free golf on Saturday ($10 if you rented a golf cart). Also frisby golf. Only downside is limited wifi, limited to clubhouse area. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

This park is a fair way off Rt 75, but is ideal for seeing the Plains GA area. It is a beautiful rural/country setting with a lot of trees and a small man-made pond. The restrooms are modern and very clean. There is a camp store, but no propane is available. The staff and host were very friendly and helpful. There is no cable TV or WIFI at the sites, but there is a nice community building with WIFI and 2 TVS (satellite), a large dining area, kitchen and large porch overlooking the pond. The sites are good sized, but are in an open field. I think they would be pretty hot on warm days, because there is no shade.

It's about a half hour drive to Plains, where there are several sites related to President Carter. If you plan ahead for a Sunday when he is teaching Sunday School, you can attend.

We stayed here for 3 nights. We wanted to tour the Jimmy Carter Historical Sites in Plains. This is a very nice park. The campground host met us as we drove in and led us to our site. Nice long spacious pull-through sites with well placed utilities. It's a very pleasant, quiet setting. Lots of areas to walk. It's right on a golf course. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Decent place for an overnight. We had a level, gravel spot. The RV park is a separate entrance than the golf course. The park host greeted us at the entrance after talking with his buddy. He lead us to our spot. It had a nice pond and open area for us to swim and run our dog. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

What a nice park! There are areas that could use some paint, but overall, it's a great place to stay - especially if you're a golfer. The workers are very friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site and then given a ride to the office to register. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Very long, spacious sites on grass/gravel. Good 50-amp power but low water pressure. Free washing, $2 to dry. This is a great park if your a golfer. When paying the full rate, your green fees are included with the space rent. Some long-term folks who like to drive very fast down the gravel road stirring up dust. We were allowed to wash our rig. We would return. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Lots of room and very friendly, helpful people. It's a great place if you're a golfer (green fees included). They need to cut the grass. Maybe it was the wrong time of the year, but we were overwhelmed with gnats. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

The bathroom and laundry are modern, clean and well-maintained and the sites are spacious, long and level. A majority of the sites are open but there are some shaded also. We had good cellphone reception and there was a WiFi hotspot available though we did not use it. If you are interested in seeing the sights in this area we recommend staying here. Watch for the American flags and the white fence so you don't miss the RV entrance We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice level gravel sites on golf course. Good water pressure. Electric consistent. Rain while we stayed so we sort of stayed in. I will/would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed this site for the other things that can be done in the area. Quiet spot. RV Park is between fairways on the south side of the Golf Club. Nice walk around the area. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

If you come here, be sure to stop by the Habitat for Humanity Community area; up the road in Americus about 4 miles. Plains, GA is the home of President Jimmy Carter. It's worth the 15 mile trip to visit the national historic site.

This is a decent little park with 3 nine-hole golf courses. Convenient to Andersonville and the Jimmy Carter Historical site among other local attractions. Sites are gravel or grass, and ours was long and level. Most are in the open but there is some shade. Bath house is modern and clean but could use better ventilation. No cable but the antenna picked up a few local stations. Wi-Fi is located in a building and not at sites. The in-season (fall, winter spring) rates include greens fees and are very reasonable. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is good shopping in town, about 5 miles away. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been here two years in a row for the golfing and bluegrass festival in mid October. The golf course is 27 holes and a bargain (Included in the price of parking as long as you don't use Passport America). I guess that the hearty snow birds spend the winter here. All in all a nice park for the money with a nice golf course thrown in for free. Close to Plains, Georgia so you can go see Jimmy Carter's little town and his residence and childhood farm. On Sundays you can go to Sunday School where Jimmy teaches the class. We'll be back next year. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

We were looking forward to staying here for as few days and playing golf but I require wi-fi in my RV at my site. When I called the manager told me they had a “hot spot” but may be able to get connected if I had the right site. When I arrived the manager led me to the prime spot but I could not get connected. I thank her and moved on. The park looked about 10% filled and the golf course appeared to be a nice one.

The park is in a nice setting but is still under construction. Some sites were all grass and some had very narrow gravel lanes to park on. Because of the rain we were directed to a gravel lane and told not to get off the gravel because we'd sink like the unit next to us had. It was extremely wet and there were a lot of mud mounds (crawfish-like mounds) all over which created a muddy entrance into the coach because they couldn't be avoided except by walking with extreme care. The gravel lane was very soft and our jack pads were the only saving grace. Pulling our toad in and out of the site felt like we were dragging it rather than it rolling freely behind the coach. There were no picnic tables or fire rings. Dirt had settled above some of the utilities and created a tripping hazard. The sewer connection was capped by an unglued "glue on plug" with a single ceramic drawer pull that made it nearly impossible to get the cap off. Our friend's connection was off the ground at least a foot. The non threaded pipe required a donut but we couldn't keep ours in the pipe so standing on it was the only recourse. If it had been a foot off the ground we would not have been able to dump. The final jury is out on this but given the still under construction state it is way over-priced. We've stayed in much nicer parks for less money. If we were going to play golf it might be worth another try but for a single night it is way too high priced. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Campground Cabin.

This review is about the new (October 2012) location for this RV Park. This campground caters primarily to golfing snowbirds. It is located right in the golf course, so the setting is quite nice and very quiet. All sites feature 50-amp full hook-ups. A third of the sites are shaded by trees and separated by little bushes, but are a very tight fit for a big rig; the other 32 sites are perfect for large motorhomes and fifth-wheels (large grassy spaces on what was a fairway, and a good view of the sky for satellite dishes). The facilities are all brand new (bath house, laundry room, "community center," etc.) and extremely clean. The water at our site tasted great, electrical power was top notch (maintaining 120V even though at one point we had both A/Cs, the water heater and a number of other appliances going), and the sewer hookup was nice and low for good flow. Everybody we met was extremely friendly and we were immediately invited to a potluck the night we arrived, even though we had nothing to bring! We chose not to partake, as we were only staying for a few nights, but it was typical of everyone's friendliness. The only downside for us was a lack of nature trails or a lake where to paddle. Still, we loved it for a few days and will gladly return. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.
