This is a small campground with two lakes/ponds. Great trail around the park and ponds. Nice deck out over the lake where you can sit. Very wooded. Some pull through sites. We were in a back in spot that was easy in and out. Only 39 sites and they are adding more. Spacious. Library, and elliptical workout machine. We stayed three days. Very quiet campground with great WiFi and great hookups. Thick gravel, but we leveled just fine. Trees in between sites. Not a resort. A campground. Would stay again for sure. - User3274

We were here with our 34' 5th wheel for 4 nights while attending a training in Athens. It was easy to find and maneuver with a nice pull through with gravel pad. Since it was January and cold, we didn't get out much, but the lake looks like it would be nice in the season, nice wooded area and nice privacy fence panel between sites which was marvelous. Office staff very courteous and helpful. - HitchedUpWilsons

Very nice, clean park. The staff was especially accommodating. I was on crutches and they gave me their Handicapped site only 50 feet from everything I needed! Everyone there was friendly. There bathrooms were like you have at home...toilet, sink and huge shower all to yourself in a private room. Their activity room was amazing...TV, several comfy sofas, tables and chairs, microwave, games, puzzles and a piano! A pool would have made this place perfect...but still great! - Van Go Traveler

Beautiful site but regular campground and all facilities closed for construction. 11 sites available in equestrian area. No sewage or dump site. Hard to understand signs and maps Host and ranger very helpful. Construction completion maybe done July. - Always young

Better than we expected! Large and clean sites with plenty of space. We stayed at #26 and it was flat. Sites closer to the stream are smaller, but there is still plenty of room for a fifth wheel or large travel trailer. People are supper friendly and bath houses were clean. It was quiet and there is space for any size camper in the park. Large swim area and a small lake for small boat with no motors as well. The only thing is the bath house near the circle with lake views is not updated. - gsimichele

MH's towing heed the RR warning if coming in via the signs. Very sharp incline, there are a couple of big lots near the park turnoff on US-278 for unhooking. The CG here has lots of nice level sites, mostly back-ins. Paid $28 less 20% senior discount, plus $1 for 10 cable TV stations. No Verizon cell or broadband in CG, but there was a usable signal near the office. We had a really big level site. Only downside is the CG exit and dump stations are on the same narrow road. So you could be stuck in a dump line if only trying to go somewhere. The golf course was overloaded on a Friday; we drove off the course after 5 hours and having 4 more holes to play. Not acceptable at all. Laura Walker and Little Ocmulgee are much better options. - Bob and Inga

Having only a few 50 amp sites is ridiculous for the number of RVers that have motor homes or RVs that require 50 amp service. To make matters worse, the park allowed a pop up to use Site 35 which is 50 amp. Only large rigs should be allowed in that site which has 50 amp. Fort Yargo needs to rethink their method of assigning sites or change the 50 amp sites to be only available for RVs; no pop ups.
We have been to Fort Yargo on 6 trips of at least a week as we have family that live in the area. With the acreage of this park, camping sites should be large and more plentiful.
Finally, having most of Campground 1 closed because the building of the new bathhouse was deleted is a travesty. Some state executive needs to be fired for delaying this project until a very busy time of the year. Loss of income for 18 closed sites is Huge. - SewSoBeachy

A nice state park CG. 30amp in most sites with only a handful of 50amp in both loops. Sites range from 20-25 feet to well over 60 feet. Due to moronic state practice the CG is "first come first served" so if you need a larger site due to rig size you better get here mid-week to insure finding an adequately sized site. Great hiking trail around the lake of almost 7 miles. I thought I was in decent hiking shape and this one kicked my, well, you know. No full hook-ups but good water/electric service. Most GA State parks have convenient gray water char pits for easy disposal of gray water.
The park is just out of downtown Winder, GA. Winder is trying to revitalize the old downtown area and it has some very decent restaurants. The Bar-b-que place is very good.
I think the daily rate is too high for what the CG offers and having to show up a day or two early to get a decent site really stinks. GA State parks, so close to great but yet so far versus the COE CG's down the road. - bodyshop bob

This quiet park outside Atlanta offers a peaceful lakeside camping experience. Free Wi-Fi available at ranger station at park entry; nothing at campground but we were able to use our hotspot at our campsite. Lot's of wildlife, birds, squirrels, deer and even a few feral cats who call the park home. Services require driving out of park a few miles into Winder. - N West

Yes, the roads are paved, but narrow. The sites are gravel, but uneven. I'd disconnected the towed, so I could move around on the site to get the rig level. There appears no maintenance is done, as the site was trashy and needed mowing. We stayed two nights, but the park is really only good for an overnight stay. - ETX

This park does not offer any discounts other than coupons found on their web site. However, we found that since we were unable to print the coupons as we had no printer with us in our motorhome, they would not honor even their own coupons without a hard copy.
The park is easily accessible and is located about a mile south of I-20 on highway 441.
We've stayed at this park three times over the last couple years and it has improved considerably this past year after the main roads in the park were paved. The sites remain gravel/dirt. About half the park are long term residents, but overnighters are parked in the sites located nearer the front of the park.
This park is okay for an overnight stop, but we wouldn't recommend it for much more than this. - Johnson's

Stayed here for one night. Had a pull thru that was fairly level. Site had 50 amp. water, sewer and cable tv. WiFi was not too good but free. Nice paved roads in all areas. They do have some permanent residents but most were neat and clean and in a separate area from overnighters. Only place for miles to stay with a big rig. Very close to I-20 but you can't hear it at all. - signaloil

The park is large and has lots of nice features. It is "rustic" and in need of repair. The decks at each site are wonderful, but are falling apart. Need paint and replacing rotting boards. The rest of the park is in the same shape. The sites are all tiered on hillsides, makes them all have a unique view of the lake, lovely. We can hear the waves lapping at the shore from our site, nice. Many trees, so no satellite dish can operate in our site unless we put out the portable one. No cable, and we could not receive any over the air channels. No biggie, kind of nice. Both pools are closed for repairs, so you might ask when they are going to be functional. Our site is not what you call spacious as far as the pad, but it is not near to any other sites. The hookups were not easy because they end up being under the slide out. - beach89bum

Newly converted to KOA - and still working at coming up to what you find at most other KOAs (at least in our experience). Our experience was very poor due to the to physical facilities related to site levelness and at least one very good opportunity for a "high center" danger.
Upon our arrival we were checked in by a courteous staff member. We were assigned to our spot and off we went. The only KOAs that we've stayed that we were not guided to our spot.
This is where the issues started. The "pull through" we were assigned to was a dirt spot - not gravel, not concrete but dirt. "Pull through" is a misnomer here - the sites are very short with severe angles and corners to cut around. With our gasser Class A our levelers couldn't level out. We changed sites 3 more times before I found a washed out site that I could level on BUT when you opened the door the bottom step was about 18" off the ground. The electrical box was leaning severely towards the water faucet and the lid was difficult to open.
After complaining I was reassigned to another spot. A back-in . I did a recon of the site and figured I could back in. I did only to find out there was 30 amp service only. (Note: I was very specific in needing a 50 amp service.) So I was again reassigned to a spot just above where I was sitting. As I looked the spot over I noticed what I believe to be a very serious problem - the real possibility of "HIGH CENTER". If you don't know what a high center danger is - I advise you to learn. In my 22 year US Army career I have seen this problem - it So I did a K turn with my 38' sports car and avoided the possible danger. Then went to a new spot. We made it work - but it wasn't easy.
In the end - this has real possibilities BUT for now avoid this place. It is about 10 miles off the I-20.
While the staff is pleasant - there are SERIOUS problems with the facility. This place has real potential but can be a real danger.
AVOID. - bigben

This is now a KOA campground and price reflects KOA discount for holiday weekend stay. Hopefully, they will be making some improvements to this park. There is no cable TV, the Wi-Fi is spotty and you have to obtain they password from the office (one password per device), and our site was pretty unlevel. The lake sites were definitely not built for big rigs and very difficult to maneuver with our 41' fifth wheel. Very crowded, which was to be expected on a holiday weekend; however, there did not appear to be any site limitations as far as vehicles and people go. Some sites would have four to five cars on them. The pools appeared to be clean but we did not use them. - Campdog41
