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. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Visit Brasstown Bald, Blood Mountain, or any of the other dozen trails in the area if you're a hiker. You can reach the Appalachian Trail from Vogel. Lots of good restaurants in Blairsville. Our favorite is Nani's Cuban restaurant.

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. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

I've been here in tents, pop ups and a 25' toy hauler. Really a beautiful park for hiking and spending time at the lake and the campsites are quite cozy. There are some tight spots for larger rigs, but overall a great state park and clean. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Tent.Undo

We have stayed here several times over the last decade and it continues to be a great park. Not a lot of frills like phone and WiFi, but it has a great stream that winds it way through the camp sites and you can hear it gurgling as you sleep. Very shaded. Satellite radio wouldn't work. It is for the nature lover and a great, relaxing park if this is what you want. If you want hi-tec, it isn't the place. It was built by the CCC during the depression. We will be here again when in the area. This is one of the few times I have ever given a 10 points. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Vogel is a great state park with nice campsites. Several are along a beautiful stream. Pretty much all are nicely wooded. Park has a big field for playing and throwing ball. There is a nice playground. The lake and swimming area are nice and well kept and there is great hiking. Location is excellent if you are a cyclist that wants to do some climbing. We've camped here at least twice and hiked here many times. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

If you drive a MONSTER CLASS A and pull a toad, I would skip this park. The road through the camping area is narrow and very dicey. In fact, at the beginning of the camping area, there is a sign instructing you to unhook your toad. I don't know how vehicles pulling trailers handle it. Some of the campsites can be accessed on the way up the road, some on the way down the road. You drive all the way up, turn around in a narrow "turnaround" area, and go back down. Some of the sites are dicey to back into. Site #28 was very spacious, but cumbersome to get into. But it was a very level site. There is adequate spacing between you and the neighbor. Restrooms were fairly clean. I had a great stay once I got into the site. I was staying "Free" due to a pass I got from previously camp hosting at another Georgia State Park, therefore, I put $1 as the price. The lake was wonderful! There is a great visitors center where you can buy T-Shirts and things. The park also has some great "hike in" tent sites, where you park here and "hike in there." Verizon Air Card (3G), Verizon Cell Phone, and Verizon Home Phone Connect worked great here. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time. Vogel is one of Georgia's oldest state parks, but it has been meticulously maintained and the old growth forests are one of the nicest things about the park. The park itself is beautiful with lots of things to do. We enjoyed the easy access to some of the best hiking trails in Georgia. We also took the opportunity to visit several of the waterfalls in the area. The campground is a good one; the sites are spacious and level with ample shade throughout. The campground hosts were very nice. There are no sewer hook-ups, nor was there any Wi-Fi, but I think this is pretty much the norm for Georgia State Parks. Our Verizon cell phone coverage was excellent however. There was a crew of power company workers here with heavy equipment laying new underground power cabling throughout the campground (this created some "noise pollution", but it looked like they were almost done). If you're planning on coming in September 2011, you may want to ask if the power company crews are gone when you call to make reservations. Overall I'm giving this park four and a half stars. The only reason I'm docking it a half a star is because of the construction. This is a great park and well worth the price. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Excellent park, clean and lots to do. The lake is beautiful. The sites were great. You have to pick your site when you get here. I will definitely stay here again. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

All we can say is WOW! If you like camping near running streams in the beautiful mountains this place is for you. Streams, and little rivers are winding everywhere through this park plus a nice waterfall at the end of the lake. Staff was great and we really got to know the ranger and his family when we all had to evacuate during the recent tornado outbreak. It was a long and scary night we spent together in the one of the parks bath houses while the tornado sirens wailed. At sunrise we found that a tornado had touched down only a couple of miles away. Way too close! A little more on the park itself: It is tight if you have a big rig. We were in a 35 ft fifth wheel and were able to move around OK but we went slow. Roads are small and trees are everywhere. We saw larger rigs including one class A rig in the park. Vogel is at about 2300 feet and the pull up to the park is somewhat lengthy and tough if you come in through the town of Cleveland or Dalonega which we did. Many, many switchbacks and steep grades for over six long miles. Was tough with a F250 diesel and did OK but the truck was definitely working. One other thing from coming from this direction is the entrance is on the downhill side of the climb and sneaks up on you. We and two other guys towing campers could not get stopped in time and had to go past the entrance for several miles to turn around. Going home we choose to go through Blairsville rather than descending the six miles. Blairsville is the way to come and go to Vogel if you can. We live in Florida and using Blairsville added about 35 miles to our trip. Well worth it since the descent (and climb) are much easier. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The price above does not reflect the senior discount of $5.50/night. We stayed in site 44. The site is difficult to get into but well worth it. Clean toilets/shower. Showers are heated and stay warm. I would rate it an 9 out of 10. A well managed and well kept park. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This is our favorite state park. We usually go to Vogel in the heat of the summer where we enjoy the cooler temps. The park is very well taken care of and has a friendly staff. We enjoy the programs, swimming beach, miniature golf, and the other amenities. The park would probably get a rating of 10 if the bath houses were more up to date. There is one newer bath house but the park has two others that really show their age. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Best Georgia State Park we have stayed in. This park is absolutely beautiful. Perfect setting, sites were on the larger side. Ours had a nice stream across the street and a small one behind us. Perfect for our 4 year old to play in. Campground was very neat, grounds were manicured. On site store had everything that we would need. Nice shady sites. Only complaint would be lack of sewer, but Georgia State Parks don't usually have them. We will definitely be back. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Campground is easily accessible off Hwy 129. Sites range from small to large and are gravel. Our site was pretty level. Large trees provide nice shade. Fire rings and picnic tables provided. One set of sites is in woods, second set of sites is along creek, third set of sites was closed for winter. This was just an overnight stop for us but we did take a leisurely walk through the campground the night we arrived and another on a trail through the woods the next morning. There is also a lake and cabins at the park. Overall a nice stay and I would not hesitate to go back. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Truck Camper.Undo

This was our first visit to this park, and we were very pleased with this campground. The sites are spread around in different areas of the park, with some being next to a stream, and others more isolated in wooded areas. We hiked on all the trails and found them varied and beautiful. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The Fall colors were wonderful, and we are anxious to return to his park again. It is definitely one of the most beautiful Georgia State Parks we have been to. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Really nice park except for tight turnaround at end of road, and not able to reserve a specific spot. Wi-fi hot spot behind the office. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
