5 Parks near Blairsville, Georgia
Jul 2010 - $26.00
We stayed here about 5 years ago. Most of the sites are permanent locals who keep TT’s or Fivers on site for weekend and seasonal use. Bath rooms were very clean. Sites were gravel. Folks were friendly. Our site was a little tight getting in and out, but no real problems. Lots of great restaurants add things to do in area. We stayed 3 days and would use it again. Vogel state park is frequently full during the summer months. - Florida Native

We've stayed in this park twice, both times in October, to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. There are only a few spots available for short term campers; most sites are leased, and well maintained. Reservations are recommended. The roads in the park are rough and somewhat narrow. Some spots take some maneuvering to get into. The park has a very nice large screened area with picnic tables for large gatherings. The washers and dryers worked fine. If you enjoy reading, you'll like their book exchange. In the screened area, there are book shelves were campers take and leave books. The park managers are very helpful. They keep a close eye on what's going on in the park. It is a convenient location; about one mile from a brand new WalMart. - BettyJ

This campground is now called Crossing Creeks. It was bought by a group that owns RV resorts in Fl. They are making many improvements and really turning it into a resort. The buildings are all done and are log cabin type structures with a spa/fitness, activity/event building, office, laundry, and poolhouse. The sites are level, concrete pads-nice and long and wide. Some are owned and some are rented as in other resorts. It is a beautiful area right in the mountains with gorgeous views. It is a couple miles from a small town for shopping and other services. The lady in the office is super and very helpful with everything. It is definitely more of a resort feel than a campground. We are considering going there for a month maybe in the summer. The people that are more semi-full timers that live there part of the year are very friendly and invited us to participate in activities-pickleball, potluck dinner and craft and yoga classes which are all free. Once the company gets everything set up it will be a very desirable place to stay. They are creating more sites and will be doing more for phase 2. - slj

What a beautiful setting! Nice, large sites. Our hookups were easy access. This is a local CG for us & wound up staying here when we couldn't get up our mtn rd to home due to heavy rains. We called & they told us to come on in. We would recommend this park to people coming to NE GA to visit. Easy access from the main hwy. Large paved sites & easy to navigate the park. Peaceful park with a stunning view. Our rate was Passport America. - 3catstravel

Our rate reflects a discount coupon we received. I only rated this park a 7 because of the missleading information that brought us to the park. The suspect review from July 2013 states the park has "super clean restrooms and showers". This is not true, there is a mens and ladies room in the office building accessible only when someone is in the office. There are no showers, laundry, or any other restrooms. The parks website home page states "Mountain View Village is the heart of the resort". The website goes on to describe the buildings, including the club house, owner's house and bathhouse/laundry. These buildings are only shells, not usable and it doesn't look like they will be finished for a long time. The owner told me they were not a priority. I was told we could use the owners personal washer and dryer for a $4 per load fee, I declined. Anyone going to this park should be aware of the lack of facilities and I feel it is the park owners responsibility to let people know when they make their reservation no matter what size or type RV since the website home page is so misleading. The overall appearance of the park is clean with a nice view across a field to the hills in the distance. The roads and sites are all paved and level will full hook ups. The sewer at out site was so far back we needed to add an extra length of hose. The WiFi was very good and we had ATT cell service. We will not use this park in the future unless it has restrooms, showers, and a laundry. - Long Lake Steve

WOW... And that's not a good wow.
Hillbilly, Backwoods, Redneck. This about sums it up, but I'll try to paint a little more precise picture.
The idea of a family run small campground along a river with a big grassy field sounded appealing. Upon arrival, I couldn't find the place to check in. I looped around the muddy trail, I mean road, twice and asked 2 different people. Well, it was tucked way in the woods and it's an 80 year old dump of a house. I was already having second thoughts but gave her the additional $60 and went to our campsite.
This place had "campsites" all over the place, like they are just tossed around. We got to the site and it was shaded and halfway decent, until I went to hook up. I had already set up my popup and then I realized my power cord wouldn't reach. Wouldn't you know they put the water and the electric on opposite sides of the campsite! My extension cord blew the outlet and the owner had to come install a new one. After we got all settled and I physically moved my popup 3 feet by hand to reach the outlet, it wasn't horrible, just very rustic. Bathrooms were a cinder block building with see thru plastic ceiling that looked 3rd world. It was grungy and nasty, worst restroom I've been in in years anywhere.
PROS- River, field to play in
CONS- overpriced, poorly run, horrible site layout, nasty bathrooms, needs serious updating
A side note on the "cabins". I don't even know where to start. Our family rented two of them. One was a one room building with a bed and a sink. The other one was, well, unique. It was literally a 40 year old travel trailer camper that had been built around into a cabin. It had 2 beds inside the camper, a table a couch and a small bathroom. No such thing as building code here. Way overpriced and just plain weird.
My advice, stay far away from this place and think about the state park just up the road. - Bkell1978

According to the owners, the campground has been family owned and operated for about 50 years. They are very nice, extremely dedicated, and very helpful. The campground is very simple and rustic. It is a small campground but quaint and a little old-fashioned. The pros are: It is very family oriented with lots of things to do for children such as tubing, fishing and playing games such as volleyball, badminton, and flag football on a big grassy area in the center of the campground. It is great for tent camping, popup campers, travel trailers up to 30 feet and small motorhomes. The campsites are shady and most are by the river. The cons are: Roads are not very well maintained as they are very bumpy and rough. Some of the tree limbs need to be cut for better access to campsites. Also, some areas are very overgrown with brush that needs attention. Bathrooms are very outdated and shower curtains need a mildew cleaning. Otherwise, the bathrooms were clean. The pull thru sites are not really great as it is a very small and crowded area. There are no sewer hookups for rvs but there is a dump station. We stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed the cool nights by the river with a campfire for one night. Overall, we had a pleasant experience with the owners, campsite, and surrounding area. We would stay there again in the future. If you are used to a more high class campground, this would not be for you. However, if you like clean fresh air, rivers, sandy and graveled sites, shady sites, and a getting back to nature type experience...then this is your place to camp. - pink51

Interior roads were in terrible condition: muddy and no drainage to speak of. The pull-thru meant that if someone got there 1st, they pulled forward of you and now someone comes from behind and now two rigs are locked in. Tenting on the river was probably nice. Restrooms are dated and no GFI in the shower room area. Sites overgrown and too many yellow jackets for us. Picnic tables were rotten and couldn't be used. Should have known...they had vacancies on Labor day weekend. - ncpiper

Bathrooms are consistently clean and well maintained. Office personnel are very nice and helpful. WiFi is spotty depending on where you are camped. There was no TV reception which wasn't a bad thing. Overall, very nice camping experience. - FreedomExp

A lovely setting with generally very clean grounds. It's indeed away from everything; mail takes two or three extra days and if there's Wi-Fi, we couldn't find it. Quiet hiking trails, but upper site roads are terribly dusty and rutted; your rig will bounce and bang around. The camp is not particularly well marked and if you are a big rig with tow, you will find hard, narrow turns. Do-able, but with caution and patience. We were treated a little snippily by a manager. Would probably stay again, but only because of dear friends in a near-by town. Recommended for families or couples wanting to really get away, but not for anyone for whom Wi-Fi business or family communication is important. - montyjack

What a wonderful campground! Sites are clean and fairly private. Most sites are wooded, all have fire rings. Some sites are unlevel, so pack your blocks. There are two nice playgrounds on site and horseback riding for an extra fee. Hayride on Saturday nights. Wi-Fi is very strong up at the main building, spotty through the rest of the park. Laundry facilities available too. - minkydog

One of the prettiest state campgrounds we've ever stayed at. Heavily wooded with sites right on a mountain creek. Nice lake within the campground with a nice waterfall that's a very easy hike. Campground also has cabins in case you want to invite friends that don't normally camp. Playground for the kids, but they also seem to play a lot in the creek! Also has a small miniature golf course.
The negatives that we found were: The campground is about 20 minutes from the closest town with decent shopping. It's a pretty hilly/windy road coming in from the south. No TV or cellphone access from our campsite, but they do have Wi-Fi access up by the park office/camp store. - Denny Johnson

This was our first multi-day trip with our new travel trailer although we've been to Vogel many times for day hiking. The park continues to undergo renovation, and the updates to campsites are especially nice. The campsites are well laid out and shaded. I think the best part about Vogel is the immediate access to several hiking trails in the area. If you're a serious day hiker, you'll love the Coosa Backcountry Trail (13 miles) or the trail up to Blood Mountain. You can't beat the scenery and wilderness recreation in the area. Verizon cell coverage is decent but Wi-Fi is almost nonexistent unless you're close to the office. Blairsville is close for shopping and eating. You could easily spend a week at Vogel and never get bored. Vogel is a great base camp location for hiking, sightseeing, and even road biking. The area is well known for road biking. - tripster

Nice secluded sites in a beautiful wooded setting. We stayed right on a beautiful small stream. Sites were gravel, as was road. No TV or satellite due to tall, closely spaced trees. Bath house was old and not well maintained. - Crottys
