This is still a true campground great for families! Stayed with my husband and grandchildren. Easy to find. Entrance sign well-lit. Roads bumpy, some paved. Nice, relaxed owners focused on constant improvement. 90 wooded acres with large, spacious sites easy for big rigs to maneuver in and out of. There are over 3 miles of trails to walk or drive a golf cart. A beautiful new in-ground, saltwater pool; clubhouse w/kitchen to rent; bathhouse w/laundry facility; playgrounds; horseshoe pits; go-cart track; 30/50 amp sites, some FHU; easy access dump station; onsite propane; cute rental cabins; great tent sites; pavilions; great outdoor stage used for an occasional Christian/Gospel concert; pet friendly and free Wi-Fi which is great for browsing and email, but too slow for downloads/videos. They are starting activities such as potlucks and fun family weekends too. We camped at Hillside Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Make sure you request a site near the office, especially if staying for a few days. There are limited w/e/s sites. Some permanent residents were playing very loud music until after midnight and the manager could net get them to turn it down. She didn't seem to care much as she was participating with them. We had to move during the stay because of the excessive noise on day two. There was one "newer" bathhouse, however it was not very clean. Space heaters on the floor in the bathrooms/shower were not comforting. Other bath houses were either locked or very run down. The roads were mostly in poor condition with lots of ruts. Empty cans and pieces of trash were in many sites. Owners came by after we moved and apologized and topped off a propane tank. They were friendly, but the park really needs cleaned up. We camped at Hillside Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is tough to rate. It has a lot going for it: peaceful setting, spacious sites with shade and sun, quiet, family-oriented, helpful and friendly owners and Wi-Fi for $2 per day. It has the potential to be a 9 or a 10. What's holding it back? Interior roads have some very rough ruts and tight spots, trees need trimming in some places, and a little sprucing here and there. All that said, we enjoyed our stay and would likely return next time we're in the area. We camped at Hillside Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Spacious campground offering all types of campsites - shaded, big, small, open, tent, etc. The interior roads are sand-gravel but our motorhome didn't have and trouble navigating among the trees. Most sites are water-30 amp with about 30 full hookup and 15 50 amp. Their claim to fame is the Bluegrass festival, but we when we were here it was very quiet. The owner brought us a fire ring for a camp fire so they know about real camping. Most of the RV sites are large and offer no problem for a large motorhome on grassy sites. There is a small lake, and hiking at the 89 acre park. The local golfing is good. Tourist type services in town are limited. Little road noise or other intrusions interrupt the nature experience. 32.36289N 83.32606W We camped at Hillside Family Campground in a Motorhome.
