1 Park near Arabi, Georgia
Jun 2015 - $29.00
We stopped here last fall and after reading the past 2 reviews, we were worried that something had happened to the park. It is beautiful and clean. We did notice that the bad reviews always seem to come from the people who pay the least. Southern Gates is a quiet and lovely campground. There were no stray dogs and the cabins are very pretty, not in disrepair. There is a great gas station at the exit called Plantation House. The gas prices are ridiculous but the store is full of fun souvenirs and local treats. We stayed during watermelon season and the owners were kind enough to give us a watermelon! Readers, please realize that not all reviews are true on this website. I am just sorry that campground owners do not have a chance to rebut what are obviously false claims. We will definitely come back every time we are up and down I-75. - James Harris

We stayed here on our trip home from Florida. On the way down, we chose the state park just north of here but found it too far off the beaten path so we were pleasantly surprised to see the sign for Southern Gates. It is about 2 blocks from the exit. It was really hot when we stopped and found the pool very refreshing. It has been a while since we found such a sparkling pool. The grounds are well maintained and the owners were very friendly. We even got a treat of a fresh cookie! We will definitely stop again and tell our friends. The convenience can't be beat. Drive in, register, and drive straight into the pull-through site! - Irish Joe

We stayed one night traveling to Florida. The park is old and very run down. When you exit 75 it's like a ghost town. Service station is closed. Pulling into the campground, office help very nice. Inexpensive site, nice pull through. Took a walk to the pond. Everything is overgrown and the pond is covered in green slime. Cabins were run down. Looks like abandoned mobile homes there although we did see people go in one very nasty looking place.
Felt very unsafe while we were there. Needed a key code to get into bathroom which leads me to believe others try to use bathroom.
No cable TV and wifi never worked. No fire pit, picnic table all broken down. Could not and would not use.
Will not return. - Diamondgirl284
