Convenient location for a hiking base camp or water sports on Lake Burton. Close to the Appalachian Trail and other hiking trails. Fish hatchery next door and good fishing nearby. The sites are very close together, and the campground is small. During the summer months it can get very noisy with boats and watercraft on the lake. Staff was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. The gate is locked at 10pm and unlocked at 7am. Very clean grounds and sites were adequate size. Water pressure good and electric was clean and stable. Has both small tent sites and can accommodate large rigs. Bathrooms were clean and showers had hot water. Firewood and ice available and a very small but well stocked "store". - flourpedal

This has been a favorite park of ours for many years. Located next door to a trout hatchery on the shores of Lake Burton it offers fishing and hiking without having to drive anywhere. The stream separating the campground and hatchery is stocked weekly - only open to those under age 11 and over age 65. Fantastic Sunday church service in the park under the pavilion. - Champ203

The park is clean, has beautiful Lake Burton to enjoy, and is convenient to hiking and fishing. The camp host and rangers were very nice. The sites are carefully maintained and very clean. - Manatina

The owners were very kind and helpful. The only downside to the park was no wifi or cable. There was a hotspot spot at their store, but not throughout the park. Your TV antenna will do no good. You will need satellite. Also all spots do not have a "patio" area, so you are tracking in grass and leaves since no mats or rugs are allowed on the grass. - landsmitchell

The owners will not allow anyone to park their rigs without telling them exactly where they want them to be on the pad. This caused us to be too far from the sewer hookup so we ended up having to go over 1/2 hour away to Walmart to buy a THIRD hose.
There was NO OTA service at all. The wifi was useless. We were fortunate to get some LTE coverage to stream.
Once the live music is done on the weekends it was really quiet, so that was good....other than the owner's dogs running the property freely and barking it was pretty peaceful. The staggered sites were great for space! The store onsite has a large selection!
There are a LOT of permanent residents....but they seem to keep their spaces tidy. - doggpurr

We actually flew down to GA to meet a group of friends who were at this CG. I was amazed at how nice the place was, especially for $30 - $38/nt! Being from New England, that rate for FHU is unheard of.
Sites are laid out at different lengths, so you aren't situated side by side with your neighbors. Makes for a very roomy feel. Bathrooms are old, but clean and functional. Didn't see the laundry area.
Weekends have outdoor functions at the open-air bar area. We had great music both Fri & Sat, along with a craft beer tasting on Saturday afternoon.
The owners are super friendly and do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. Camp store is well stocked and includes beer/wine etc., which is good because there isn't much nearby.
Cell service is barely usable. Our AT&T service peaked at one bar. Other's with Verizon and Sprint had little to no service. Wifi is better as you get closer to the office and marginal at the outer reaches of the CG.
There is no OTA TV reception and no cable. Satellite is your only option if you have it. - Paul C

This would be a quiet stay if you are willing to put up with the owner who is in the wrong business. When we called for a reservation for the night, we were told, quote "We do not want overnighters, there is a minimum 3 night stay, if you are planning on staying overnight don't come down our road as you will have to turn around". All this was said in a very unpleasant manner. This is an adult only park with no bath house and no amenities. There are so many more choices in this beautiful area of Georgia. - lkthaler

This is a very basic option and is intended for use by people with some association to Toccoa Falls College (parents of students, visitors, family and friends of college staff, etc). To book a site you have to call the college business office and pay by credit card over the phone. We stayed a couple of weeks over Christmas and New Years and were the only ones there. There are about 10 sites, all on a large gravel parking area. If the lot was full it would be a pretty tight fit. The gravel lot is backed by tall bamboo and is very near Toccoa Creek which is very nice to hear at night. When school is out, as it was when we were there, it is very quiet and private. I imagine it would be a lot busier when school is in session. There are no bathrooms/showers for campers. There are full hookups. - JPen365

Great park for passing through. Can see the beautiful Toccoa Falls while on campus. Campground is located on the southeast end of a beautiful 1100-acre wooded campus. Sights are all gravel and level. Not much to look at, but the on-campus scenery is nice. Just call the college and make a reservation; pay at the guard-shack. We loved it! - dandagreer

Check in was easy. Nice mountain view. Very well maintained. Grass was cut, bushes trimmed. No trash laying around. Restrooms stocked well. Overall very neat appearance. Hiking trails and beach were great. No problem pulling in or out of spot. Close to town. I would stay again. - Josh-Paimemi-mone

Open Season: May 1-November 2. This is a National Forest Campground - but it has water and electric hookups. Campground has 53 sites with just water and 32 sites with water and electric. No reservations but we have NEVER had a problem getting a good site; the campground is off the beaten path and a hidden gem. The campsites are well spaced, quiet and heavily wooded. There is great hiking and a beach within the park. Plus it's a short drive to Tallulah Gorge, Lake Burton and many other sites in North Georgia. If you are pulling a big trailer, 5th wheel or motorhome DO NOT enter the campground along Old 441/Terrora Rd. This is a VERY NARROW twisty road. Instead come in via Burton Dam Road from Highway 197 and you'll have no problems. There are two entrances to the campground off Lake Rabun Road - if you want hookups take the 2nd entrance - but DON'T miss it - there is nowhere to turn a rig around past that entrance and then you're into that narrow twisty road. - Buddy Ray

Small park with mostly pull-thru sites for short timers. Long term residents are in a separate back-in section. Few full hook up sites but owners are undergoing improvements (adding sewer to more sites and adding another row of full hook up sites). Excellent wifi and we were able to position our rig to receive satellite. Sites are dirt covered with pine straw. Park is on a lovely creek with several small decks, and is fairly quiet. Easy access off road. We will return next month on our return north. - lovinretirement

Easy in, easy out. Water connection is in a box below ground, so might be a little PITA for some people. Utilities worked well. Park wifi is fine for email and Facebook. Very few OTA channels. Sites are wide. Many long term residents. The few I spoke with were friendly. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Provided suggestions for dining. Nice big field (open, unfenced) to run the dogs, just remember to pick up after them. Would stay here again. - TH travelers

This is a state park to camp in when accessing the exceptionally lovely Tallulah Gorge. You can easily walk from the campground to the gorge (about .25 of a mile) and do all the trails. There is a south rim and north rim trail each taking about an hour to do with many overlooks that let you see spectacular gorge, falls and rapids. Dogs can come along on those trails. There is also a suspension bridge over the gorge that lets you get closer to one set of waterfalls. That is many steps down and back up again and pets are not allowed. There is a nice interpretive centre. It is possible to go to the gorge floor and to rappel and rock climb but you must get a permit and access depends on weather. There is easy access across the highway to a beach and a nice paved road to bike on the lake beyond the dam and above the gorge. We found the park staff and the campground host to be exceptionally nice and helpful. I would recommend making a reservation before arrival. That way you can drive in and park your trailer and be spared trying to drive the trailer around to the park office which is very long and narrow and twisty turns road about four miles from the campground. There are two types of campsites, red said to be for 24 foot and less rigs and green for 50ft long rigs. You can't reserve a specific site. They are first come first serve by arrival. About half the 24 foot sites are actually big enough to take longer rigs and are a mix of back in and pull through. Some of the sites are very small with a steep walk in or out, basically only good for a tent. The few 50foot sites are long and level but they are narrow and all in close rows and not so nice. There is a nice playground and open green space near the 50ft sites. As noted by others, there is one exceptionally tight hair pin turn but we were able to navigate it with our 30 foot trailer and pickup. There were no steep hills or difficulties on the roads into or around the park. - Judy Birchland

We loved this park. It is absolutely beautiful. We are more "state park" type campers, where it is quiet. We have a 42.5 foot 5th wheel. To get to our site, we had to drive through the campground. There was one hairpin turn that was a little sketchy, but we made it through just fine. Other than that, it was easy to navigate. No wi-fi, but we are OK with that. The bathroom and shower room were very warm and clean. The camp hosts were very nice. We spent Christmas here, and the hosts hung a couple candy canes on our door as a gift. Very kind. There was a little noise from nearby traffic, but it wasn't noticeable at night. The sites were easy to pull through and were fairly level. We had made reservations prior to arrival, and when we arrived, we saw that the campground was having a half off sale. They were able to refund half of our prepaid amount, which was a wonderful surprise! The only improvement we could hope for would be addition of sewer at the sites. - RVerFamily

We camped just down the road at the Tallulah Gorge State Park and drove past this campground in Oct. 2014 - Tallulah River Walk was closed - boarded up with a For Sale sign on it. I guess the previous reviewer's comment about it being in forclosure was correct. Their website is still online but that's probably because their hosting hasn't expired. - Buddy Ray

This has to be the worst campground we ever stayed at. Narrow roads, rowdy campers, road noise, sites not maintained. Price was steep for what you get. From what I've read online the place is in foreclosure. Stay far away from this place. - shephard1
Oct 2013 - $10.00
Hard to find. Very hard to maneuver through park and back in your site. Narrow, steep roads with low-hanging tree branches. Restrooms were dirty and rundown. Workers are rude if you can find one. This was a nice place years ago. Now it is awful. Cannot believe it is still in business. There was a kid walking around with a gun shooting near our RV. - travel america

I have stayed in other campgrounds that were close to the highway and hated it. This one has the advantage of being in a great location and is just far enough off the beaten path to maintain a sense of quiet and privacy. The slow moving river behind most of the sites is nice and they each have their own little covered deck. What we didn't know was that each evening before sunset, the otters would swim by. That was cool. I did not see sewage but there are hookups and fire pits strategically placed. Bath house was a bit of a compromise but I would be happy to camp there again. - Palomino Highwall

According to the Helen, Georgia Convention and Visitors Bureau, this campground is no longer in operation. - BigDadDogg

If your interested in just a place to park, this campground might work. One thing is for sure, there wasn't any kind of customer service when we were there. The office is only open Thursday through Saturday. The sign said to go to the manager's trailer to check in but there wasn't anyone there either. There was power, water, and sewer hook ups and the site was level. From the looks of this campground it was built in the 50's and hasn't been updated since then. Don't waste your time here! - ranier1315
