This place was beautiful on a lake with water side camp sites. It would be a solid 10 if they would install AC in the restrooms. Paved streets, paved sites, very clean. When it is 95 degrees outside, it is over 100 degrees in the restrooms. Just cool them down and this is a great park. I will be back. - aliner man

This is the most horrible park we have ever stayed at. We were wishing that we had just parked in a truck stop for the night. the site was horrible uneven We could not even put our slides out because we could not put down jacks as it was so uneven. They have only 30amp service . Tthis place has some potential but it needs a lot of work to get up to what people want in a RV park . - indian

Campground is old and not taken care of. It is a good location and we are glad it is there. It is okay for a day or two as long as you are self contained. We do wish they would fix up this campground and do the repairs that are needed. Many sites have disabled electric and water which are not used. It is sad to see a campground in this condition. We did enjoy our short stay and are glad it is open and here. There is not another campground anywhere around. - Road Runner

This has got to be the junkiest, most rundown excuse for a "trailer park" there is. We parked and listened all night to limbs from the trees falling on our brand new rig. My husband had to back out of a "pull thru" site and wiggle the RV out. Electric was very low. We didn't even bother to hook up water. The drainage ditch in the back of the park is nasty with very brown water and trash. - J59T

Daily rate is based on a one week stay for $150. Much cheaper than any place else in the Atlanta area that we found. We had FHU next to office with great free wifi. The bath house is located in with laundry and is totally handicapped accessible. There are three washers and three dryers. Both of the bathrooms are unisex and large with a wheelchair accessible shower. Everything is kept clean. We were serenaded in the evening by the spring peepers and could hear a train off in the distance, both very pleasant sounds. There are security lights by the bath house. It was quiet and safe. Most of the residents here are workers so things are very quiet. There are no amenities or activities. It is simply an inexpensive, safe, quiet place to stay while we visited Atlanta which was about 16 miles away. Lots of shopping and many great restaurants in the area. - Da Keeffes

We stayed at this campground for a little over 2 wks. The camp host and owner could not be any nicer and helpful. WiFi not the best. Had no problem with satilite signal. Some sites would require longer electric and sewer hookup. I would not use directions on website. Take Maxham to Old Alabama to Wren Circle. This avoids the residential area. We would stay here again for a shorter stay. - Rebecca B

We stayed 3 nights.
The directions provided on the park's website takes you through a residential area with narrow streets, a short hill ending in tight 90 degree intersection turn, and low hanging trees. It was a challenge to reach the park following those directions in a 41' motor home with a toad.
The park is a former manufactured home development. It opened Fall, 2014 but is still undergoing renovations. The common building was not complete. There was no office. Some of the electrical connections were not functioning. The roads were not in good condition: An open hole in the road near the main entrance; cracks with growing vegetation; roads sloped in a V creating inclines to some of the sites with speed bumps. They were working on the water system so they had the water off for more than 2 hours without prior notice. Tree encroachment into the roads especially at the corners creating a hazard for taller RV's.
The park is laid out in a rectangle with the back-ins along the outside and pull-throughs in the center of the park. They were long enough for our 41' MH with the toad. The sites are generally grass with some concrete areas. There were tire ruts in the grass indicating the parking areas were soft in wet conditions. The utility connections are not well suited for RV use. Depending upon where you park, the connections could require long runs (some looked about 30 to 40 feet long). The sewer connections stuck up above the ground about 6 to 12" creating problems establishing any type of downhill flow.
There were trees to interfere with satellite reception. Only 3 broadcast channels. Only 1 was a major network.
No WiFi offered.
There wasn't a fenced pet area. There was sufficient space to walk dogs along the park's roads and in the surrounding area just outside the park but that area did not feel safe. There were no bag dispensers or receptacles around the park to pick up waste. There was a dumpster available for garbage.
Basically, you pay full rate to park in a field with no amenities and questionable hook ups!
The park is better suited for towables (there was a large 5th wheel in the park), Class C's, Class B's and smaller Class A's. Use Old Alabama Rd to get to the park.
Since there was no office, in order to pay with a credit card you need an internet connection to pay through Pay Pal.
Nearby train whistles all night long. - bsb814

NOTE: THE RENOVATIONS PLANNED FOR THE SUMMER OF 2015 DID NOT OCCUR, BUT ARE NOW UNDERWAY. THIS PARK WILL NOT BE OPEN AGAIN UNTIL EARLY 2016. - ramblin' vagabonds

April 9, 2015 ADMIN NOTE: The manager of this park has reported to us that the facility (Jim R. Miller Park) is undergoing MAJOR renovations and will not have RV Sites available until AFTER SEPTEMBER 2015.
We were at this park for 16 nights. The rate is $15.00 per night for 1 night or 16- very reasonable. The staff is very helpful. It's one of the Georgia State Fairgrounds, but the campground is separate from the Fairgrounds. It can be quite busy with many police related facilities in the area. There is a police shooting range nearby that can be heard at times. The fairgrounds is also used for many police and ambulance related practices and training. In most cases you would never know it's going on. - dthurk

Giving this an extra point for being so affordable. One set of restrooms was locked and leaking water under the door. The other wasn't very clean and the trash hadn't been emptied in awhile. Not much to do, BUT it's quiet (if there are no events), pleasant, spacious and HUs work well. Only 1/2 mile to Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield National Park and as convenient to Atlanta as anything else we could find. Enter through Gate 1. Stayed several days and will definitely be back. . - TheRollingJones

I agree with the other camper who said not to bother. We have camped at several military campgrounds and have always had a good experience. This is an exception to those other campgrounds. First we called the office number numerous times on different days and got a recording, left messages for call back and nothing. 3 hours before we arrived we called the office# and finally a woman answered and said there were 5 open sites. We arrived to find one site taped off with yellow caution tape, another site with a van parked off to the side in the woods but no vehicle on the pad. We pulled out and parked in parking area in front of the office hut and husband called base security to ask if it was OK to dry camp for the night. He was told to go to a building and check in which he did but guy in office had no idea why he was told that! Husband came back and drove back into campground to look at the site where van was parked and another camper told him the owner takes his rig out and is gone for days meaning site is not paid for but discourages someone from using it. We paid and used the site for the night. The remaining sites were occupied by long term people but not all workers. 1 retiree had been there since October so 2 week rule not in-forced. Another site had a 35' motorhome, 30' tow trailer, the truck to haul the trailer and 3 cars. Another site had a portable garage frame with tarp setup in front of the trailer. I would dry camp in a Walmart parking lot before returning here. - petpeople

Nice park with several sites available but the bathrooms, specifically the men's was atrocious. One toilet was severely messed up and wasn't cleaned for two days! The women's was fine and I had no problem. A few sites were 50' long and nicely separated from your neighbor. Quiet and nice park. There is a little bar that is busy during the week. Our neighbor, Jeff, who is responsible in some fashion there, was extremely helpful when we were concerned about getting to the dump station in the morning - someone was parked there and he made sure they moved. The biggest issue we had was on our departure GATE 2 (which is the only RV accessible gate) is closed on the weekends, which we did not know!! Luckily for us the security spotted us heading for the exit and flagged us down to wait while he brought someone up to open up the gate for us. So it all worked out fine, but if you're planning on arriving or leaving on the weekend you should call first to find out the proper procedure. We camped here in a motorhome. - Bill & Debby's Wild Ride

Civilians and Reserve military personnel working on the base and long term (years) permanent residents prevent transient overnight or short term stops. Before taking the time to stop, call the MWR number and ask if there are sites available. Chances are slim to none an open site will be available. The CG does not take reservations. We wasted a lot of time coming off the interstate to the CG only to find civilians working on the base were occupying nearly all sites and that no sites were available. - CRICKEYDOG770

First of all, it is really difficult to give a bad review to a park when the staff is so nice. Well, this is the case here. The staff both on the phone and in person were exceptional, very nice and accommodating. Unfortunately, the pleasantries stop there. I arrived just after the office closed and picked up my packet from the front door. I was immediately taken aback by the very narrow bumpy roads, uneven with holes throughout. I was hoping that things would get better, they didn't. I made it to my site VERY slowly as cars were protruding onto the road, my 45' rig was not happy. Our space was narrow and nowhere big enough for our rig, but the office was closed and no one answered the emergency phone provided at the office. With my rig backing up within a foot of the rig in back of me, and still protruding onto the road we made it work. The park is old and looks to have 95% full timers, very tight spaces, not a place to sit out and relax. For a lot of reasons, this is not a big rig friendly park, stay away. Although they have 50 amp service, I tripped the circuit breakers 4 times with minimal equipment running, twice in the middle of the night while sleeping. There are two levels, below and up top. We stayed up top. There is NO WAY a rig over 30' can get down to the second level. I would only stay here if you had absolutely no other choice. I would NOT stay there again. - Damon campers

We've stayed in better. We've stayed in much worse. An urban, older design, live in park with sites available for those of us that need a couple of nights when we travel this area. Sites are tight but our 40 ft fiver got in with room to park our truck off the road. Other sites not so much as sit is just big enough to handle living unit, with travel vehicles parked in front, making the travel road tight. Go slow...large speed bumps. Friendly owner at check in. We don't use the public facilities so can't comment on washrooms/showers. Relatively quiet for an urban area. Loudest sounds were aircraft from Dobbins Air Field coming and going now and then...but that the sound of freedom! Full hook up worked fine. No problem choosing to return again if in this area. - Brujomar

Cramped, run down sites. Lots of noise from the auto repair shop in back of the sites. Like many other RV parks, they advertise WI-FI, but it was down most of the time. When it was up, it was basically unusable. I wouldn't recommend this park. - HitchHikers

No one there to check us in, yet we had a confirmed reservation. Called and left a message we were there. We picked a site and started to set up. One leg of the electric kept tripping off, water was a brown/grey. Water did clear up after running. Electric concerned us and there was not any one to consult. There no other campers there either.
Place has potential under the right management. - Hey Jude

This is a hard review to write, because there are things that I love about this park and things that I hate. Lets start off with the bad, because if you can handle it you should definitely stay here.
The road into the park is a very long single lane. It is incredibly narrow and a mix of uneven gravel and sporadic paved bits. It is bumpy and there are too many pot holes to count. Your underside will probably get scraped and branches will likely drag across your rig like it did ours.
The bathrooms are pretty gross. There are lots of cobwebs and dead bugs. I peeked at the showers and they were just as bad. I didn't rate them incredibly low, because I can admit that it could be worse. They were at least free from human-specific dirtiness.
The lots are very soft dirt and aren't particularly level because of this. We were able to make do, though.
Now, you are probably wondering about the good. Well...the location is absolutely lovely. It is incredibly shady and pretty. They are walking trails, a farm, an open field, goats, bunnies, and even a peacock. There is also a lake that isn't part of the park, but it is all so nice to look at. It is a gorgeous park nature wise. It feels so incredibly relaxing. All you hear is nature and quiet. I'm guessing a lot of people don't know about this place, because there weren't very many people here, so your neighbors are very spaced out.
Despite how rough it was getting in, I would totally come back. It is affordable and absolutely beautiful. - toocoolfortulle

Gated community. We love rustic parks but this was a little too rustic for us. The main road is red clay and gravel. It was raining lightly when we arrived and the RV lost traction going up the hill on the drive into the camping area. It rained heavily during the night so next day leaving our rear-end diesel pusher lost traction again going up the hill. The shower/bathrooms were very toasty and could use a good sweeping but otherwise ok. Friendly service by older gentleman checking us in. We only used water and electric. Did use pumping station for b/w. Great place for locals, a little off the beaten path for the overnight traveler with a big rig. Will not be returning. - RetNav

I stayed here only because all other parks were apparently full or weren't taking one-nighters. No amenities. No upkeep. I paid $35 just so I could have electricity and water. Next time I'd do without. - OmakMary

Avoid this place. Very few sites have full hook ups because most of the equipment is broken. Sits right next to I-85, so in addition to being a dump, this place is noisy. There were no site numbers! Worst place I have stayed in my two years of hitting the road and traveling about 10,000 miles. - urlookingood

One word description: Dump! At one time this must have been a nice RV/mobile home park but not in the last 20 years. Many worker RVs and mobile homes with a number of them empty so I guess they are rentals. Adjacent to busy I-85 so there is highway noise. Could not close the electric breaker box with exposed wires due to latch broken. Sewer connection is an open pipe. Water faucet barely sticks out of the ground. Should have gone with my first inclination and left before registering. Discovered ants all over the front of RV the next morning. Did have a fairly level concrete pad to park on. Would not stay here again. - Bamabound

Actually I did not stay in this campground. A friend wanted me to check out for him. This place is a REAL DIVE, cars up on blocks, what was left of the road in the campground had huge potholes in it, lots of trash and lots of seasonal RVers with rundown RVs. Overall really run down. I would not recommend anyone staying there. - ETB

Nicely shaded well manicured sites with level pad for outside cooking and or tenting. I-75 does cross over front entrance to park and sites 1 -29 noisy during the day hours. Park attendants are hit or miss regarding hospitality. Some are overly friendly and others are down right mean. We have camped at this park for 7 years now and love the convenience of local new built Publix grocery store on hwy 41 a mere 2.5 miles away. Only major complaint is that front gate is locked at 11:00PM with no exit until 7:00AM. This makes it very tough. They should combination lock the gate. I guess I should be glad for the security right? Some of the lower number sites are small but in no wake cove of lake Alattonna so boats at Blockhouse day use don't jeopardize safety when swimming. The park is controlled by the Army Core Of Engineers Mobil, AL division. Reserve USA is now sub contracted out and what a mess. Much better last season. Ugh!! Anyway nice park and don't let I-75 scare you. Its still very nice and will continue to camp there for years to come. - beech2000

Campground is beautifully shaded with most sites on the water. Restrooms are well maintained and camp hosts are very accommodating. Sites have picnic tables and grills, nice level paved sites. BUT, it seems this campground was developed before I-75 put a bridge over that section of Lake Allatoona. The high level of noise from cars and trucks crossing the I-75 bridge can be heard in every section of this campground. Even when we were inside our rig with the A/C on, we could hear the roar of the traffic all night long. It’s such a shame as this is a beautiful campground. - giggleshanks
