No campfires were allowed due to dry conditions. Roads are tight for large trailers. Nice spacing for most sites. Store contained essentials. AT&T cell service was spotty. No cable service or broadcast channels. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Well located and beautiful state park in the heart of Georgia's northern mountains. Vogel State Park surrounds a gorgeous small lake and is within easy drives to the historic gold mining town of Dahlonega, the charming "Bavarian" town of Helen and to the highest point in Georgia--Brasstown Bald. That said, the road into, through and out of the campground includes some very tight turns and relatively steep grades that might be a tough for large rigs. (We were towing a 29' TT) Our site was very nice sized, flat, and equipped with 30A elec. and water. WiFi did not work in our area and TV reception via a power antenna was minimal. However, the beautifully wooded surrounding and central location made up for this inconvenience. We would return and encourage others to consider this state park as a great base for exploration of the mountains in Northern Georgia. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Allow 2-3 hours to visit Brasstown Bald-amazing views. Helen is a shoppers paradise--very touristy, Bavarian style town. Far too crowded and commercialized for our tastes. We much preferred Dahlonega--a very historic town with a great museum showcasing their gold mining history, many great looking shops, a fabulous chocolate shop with amazing truffles and several gold "mining" opportunities.

This is a beautiful state park in the north Georgia mountains. One of my favorite, if not the favorite, state parks anywhere. Friendly staff, largest campsite we have ever had anywhere next to a stream and it was pretty quiet even though filled over the weekend. We camped here around 35 years ago and since then it has only gotten better over the years. Nice camp office and store. Love this place. We were warned that a black bear and her cub had been spotted in the campground, but we never saw them. The famous Apalachian trail passes right under the portico of the building and the store has tons of backpacking supplies and clothes. Neat place on Neal's Gap. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Who needs a playground when your campsite has Wolf Creek! Grandkids loved playing in the creek. Since it's shallow, no worries about letting them explore behind our campsite on their own. Nice location for exploring waterfalls in the area. Quiet, spacious campsites with better than average state park amenities. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Vogel State Park is a OK park. The check in was fast; we made reservations on line about a month in advance. We stayed 6 nights. The roads are tight. I would say it is not big rig friendly. It is a old park and not designed for anything over a 30 foot RV. It was very busy and the bathrooms are small and old. One shower would flood when taking a shower. They tried to keep them clean, but with so many people there it was hard for them. The toilet paper is like sand paper! Bring your own!

They have no sewer hook ups so you have to take a shower in the bathroom or fill up your holding tank fast. They have no laundry, we had to go to town for this. It rained a lot, so make sure you tilt your awning for rain run off. The hiking trails are beautiful, but have steep grades, not for out of shape people. They have a few Black bears running around we saw one on the trail, a full grown 200 pounder! We slowly backed away from it and went back down the trail. Be careful of the yellow jacket wasps they live in the ground and if stung will ruin your day! They have a nice man made lake with a small beach that you can swim in. It got very busy on the weekend as the park filled up with locals for day use. This is a older average state park campground. Stores are very far away, bring your dirty laundry with you. Blairsville has only one laundromat. No TV and Wi-Fi is very poor and slow at the store. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Do your shopping in Blairsville; it is a long drive from the park. Go to Brass Town Bald mountain. If you want a Disney World like tourist trap visit Helen GA. Go hiking on the trails in the park very nice and beautiful. Stop by the road side shops and get boiled peanuts and REAL Georgia peaches!!

Beautiful, quiet, and plenty of activities for kids. Difficult to maneuver our travel trailer into the campsite. There was no wi-fi available. You are 20 minutes from the nearest town to get groceries or other things, but there is a small convenience store just outside the park for necessities. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Love this State Park! Went for fall color hiking and unfortunately the rains came and washed out much of our fun. I travel with my two dogs who really didn't care about the rain but sniffed every inch of the Park. Got some short hikes in. Visitor Center staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. While not advertised, I picked up their WiFi signal when close to the VC. We camped at Vogel State Park in a Motorhome.

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

In the mountains. A lot of hiking, waterfalls and great scenery nearby. About 45 minutes from the quaint touristy town of Helen, and 20 minutes from Blairsville for decent shopping.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
