6 Parks near Bishop, Georgia

I love this park. New owners took over in mid-October, and I can't say enough about how accessible and attentive they are. The park is lovely, with a beautiful lake in the middle. The new owners are investing in making it even better; when I was there, they paved the roads, and they're working on an expansion. The bathrooms are clean and spacious and the laundry is reasonably priced.
One thing that would make it better would be to add cable TV. Currently they offer Direct TV boxes for rent at $5/day, and I had a lot of trouble with it.
Overall, it's among the very best parks I've stayed at, and I've already made my reservation here for next spring! I highly recommend it. - CamperChris4

We have stayed here several times in the past and like it as an overnight. This time I called for reservations and was not told about PAY FOR VIEW cable nor did they give me the WiFi access information. I would hope they will remember this short fall and correct it in the future. Easy hook ups for all utilities. Fair voltage around 112 V operated both A/C ok. - Waster

2nd time in this campground. It is shady and level with pull-throughs large enough for big rigs. They have really tried to make this a nice campground with walking a path around a nice size man made lake. The sites were close but private with fencing and natural shrubbery. Lots of poison ivy on both visits so watch out! The thing I didn't like most is this is a "workers" campground. Lot of permanent blue collar workers making noise, talking, music, etc. really early in the mornings to the point of being rude. On the first visit there was a police chase with a crash resulting in front of our loop. So I'm thinking it isn't the best quality of people in this area. We used this as a stopover both times, but most likely won't be back because both times there seemed to be some kind of chaos. - freedmskr

This park was great, they have redone the campground, both bath houses are new and there are 10 full hookup sites 1-10, every site that we checked had 30 and 50 amp. All the wood around the campsites is new. Park rangers were very nice and helpful. Golf course was very nice. - thejones357

Took my two grandsons for a 2 night stay at this State Park near my home. The park has recently undergone a large renovation and in my opinion it was tax money well spent. Campsites have been upgraded with new gravel, roads repaved, underbrush cleared, etc. Park has lots to offer. We played real golf, putt putt, and the boys went swimming at the beach area. A few sites added sewer hookups and the cable was being re-done while we were here. My only complaints were no wifi or cell phone service, and my pull thru site was a little off level. If you have stayed here before, give it another try. Much improved. - dennish

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

The park was great. It was clean and family friendly. The lots were spacious, sunny and open. Sites were gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. - camper2016

Visited for a long weekend. Best showers/restrooms bar none. Sites were clean but dated. No sewer, very few site grey water dumps. Friendly staff. More camp hosts than one can shake a stick at. I've never seen a camp with a street light before. Lake had some lime green slime/moss looking stuff floating around. Not sure what that is all about. Post sewage spill 2014 still skeptical of eating caught fishes. Camp/recreation areas seemed to be a very odd layout. Everything recreational seemed to be on the opposite side of the park. Would visit again. - Phill

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

Lots of permanent residents and roads are very narrow; could be a problem for a large RV. Gravel pads with some grass. Works fine for an overnight. - Bojangles

The people that own this park were so nice to us. We stayed for 3 months and never had a problem. They have a laundry room that was nice and clean. Bathhouse was so clean and even smelled cleaned when you walked in!! The workers here made sure to keep it very clean.
The park itself stayed very quiet. Speed limit is 5, which I loved since I have a toddler that likes to run around. The owners also ride around during the day AND night checking on everything. Will definitely be back if my husband has a job near by again. Thank you Country Boys RV, we had the best stay. You take wonderful care of your guests. - Shelby Shoemake

Went to a membership promotion to this camp site. This is the old KOA campground on lake oconee. When we arrived I immediately noticed this campground was run down. Not a lot of care given in last several years. This is a small campground with 25 percent permanent campers that looked a little rough. Several of them were for sale. Only 11 lakeside sites so don't even think you'll be on the water. Most sites were not level. The rail cars were at one time nice but not been maintained. They looked out of place in the mix of permanent campers and the rental trailers (they called cabins). I would be scared to launch a boat at the boat dock. No place to park your boat trailer in the area. I don't know how they worked that out. What they called the beach looked like they had dumped several loads of sand by the lake several years ago. But this sales guy that was trying to sell me a membership ( 15,000 dollars) seemed really inspired by this place. All during his sales pitch he kept repeating "I can't promise you anything ". I had no intention of buying into their resort going over there and after viewing the site I couldn't wait for sales pitch to be over. They'll try to hang you with one of several different package deals. I don't understand why they call it a resort. - John Quincy jones

We went in for a "presentation " that was VERY VAGUE, when we asked what type, ie., time share, co-op purchase, etc.
Upon arrival, we were lead through the entire campground to a site that did NOT have the requested 50 amp service. Taken to another area that was SUPPOSED to fit our 42' 5th wheel. 1st site was already occupied, next site was too narrow AND had low hanging tree limbs. Finally settled on the last site in the park that could accommodate our rig. It was filthy, littered with trash including a pair of used latex gloves. The entire staff, except for one of the sales staff, was rude and snarky, not interested in customer service.
We were put in an area that was relatively unoccupied. However, 2 of the 3 nights, other campers were brought to the site right next to us...so close that we couldn't even extend our awnings. One of those campers even commented to me as to why they were put next to us...they took up part of our "yard" space, and there were plenty of other available options.
This campground was HORRENDOUS.
AS for the "presentation," the "salesman" was EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE! Within the first 20 minutes, he told us 3 times that if we weren't interested, then we were wasting his time, and we wouldn't be welcomed back. He also referred to women's temperament "during their time of month." And finally, he spoke badly of law enforcement and gave us his political views on the presidential candidates. Having spent over 35 years in Customer Service and Sales...I was APPALLED! Not to mention, my husband is retired Law Enforcement.
Needless to say, we did NOT PURCHASE their "membership" and we would camp in a LANDFILL before EVER CONSIDERING THIS DUMP AGAIN! - 1-CampeR

As of July 2016, this facility was a KOA (again?). This "resort" is not at a resort standard. The camground requires that you unhitch your tow vehicle prior to entry because of the narrow roads. The site they put us in would not accommodate our 30 ft coach. It was too steep of an entry to the site and our back bumper dug into the dirt. After much debate, they moved us to a site across the way from the original site. After dragging our bumper along the cement for about 5 feet due to a steep entry, an employee commented about how lucky we were to get the shadiest site. We did not appreciate that since it was so difficult to enter the site. It was over 100 degrees when we checked in about 6 pm this day.
The restroom facility we found had exposed electrical wires, and no mirrors. We were unable to find the shower facilities. The entry gate requires a code to enter. The employee who was guiding us to the site opened it for us, but we were never given the code. It wasn't an issue for us since we arrived about 6 pm and knew we were leaving early the next morning. If we had known Lake Oconee Village was so close, we might have had dinner out while the RV cooled off. Entry into park is deceptive of park quality. Road into park from I-20 is very narrow.
Another review mentions a view of the lake. From our site, we could not see or hear the lake. If we hadn't taken a walk later that evening, we wouldn't have know the lake existed. The sites were not easy to use the hookups, based on their locations and how you had to park at each site. We rated site as bad because of the entry issues and hookup issues. - Ms Winnie

Georgia Power campgrounds as a rule are very nice and well run. This park is no exception. You must call for reservations, not available online. Check them out! - happygacamper

Georgia Power Lake and can obtain reservation information from their web site. Only about 5 miles south of Interstate 20. Walking distance to the beach and nice playground. Washer/dryer located at bath house, but didn't use them. I will camp here again. - Crop Guy
