A nice campground located in the country. They have a small lake that is Emerald in color. The owner was very accommodating and led us to our spot. I appreciated that she moved us to a spot away from an upcoming party that night. She offered suggestions of things we could do in town. We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very difficult park to rate. The owners we met were wonderful, and could not have been more helpful or pleasant. The campground was in no way a resort. Out of the way? Absolutely. The sites were not state-park spacious, but big enough for awnings and slides. We came right after major rainfall and went into a second site after the first was too muddy for our 'big foot' to work, even after placing wood beneath the extensions. Why we weren't given the second site in the beginning is still a mystery to me. The place was not crowded. Locals seemed to gather at the park after dark, friends of the owners, and we all shared a large campfire. Enjoyable.

It's a simple place, nothing fancy (the bath house is a travel trailer at the end of the CG) and good for an overnight stop. Very laid back and comfortable because of the people, but should never be confused with a camping resort. Sites were dirt (mud due to rain) with all hook ups reasonably placed. Some sites were more level than others, but none seemed to present a problem. No patios, and our site didn't have a picnic table. We used our satellite TV with no problem. There is a restaurant owned by the CG owners on site, but it wasn't open. If we were hungry, however, he told us he would open it up! This place is, honestly, near very little of interest - Colquitt could be 'toured' in an hour, and that's about it. Would we stay here again? Maybe if we were in the area, but would not go out of our way. Very nice people, but we have been in many CGs with nicer facilities. The Passport America price, however, made it's cost very legit. Not really worth what the normal price would be. Have no idea at all why some of the ratings are so high - unless those posting have had very limited camping experiences at other CGs! Again, cannot say enough about the owners, but that alone does not rate above average for us. We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park and we enjoyed our stay while in the area to attend a production of Swamp Gravy at Cotton Hall in Colquitt, GA. The website said Complimentary WiFi of which did not work. That is an amenity that I look for when choosing an RV park. Even without WiFi I would stay at this park again. The owner was very nice and helpful and we were assigned a very nice lot on the lake. We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The murals pained on walls and silos in Colquitt were very pretty and if Swamp Gravy is going on, it is a must do.

Wonderful 3 night stay! We had a delicious seafood buffet Friday night after setting up. Grill on site for cooking. Enjoyed watching martin birds dip down on the lake getting water in the evening. Good water pressure and electricity, level lot. Lake gets its name from the white sandy bottom and the reflection from the sun. Very friendly park! Coming back often! We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Almost all sites are grassy, full hookups, and level. Owners are very accommodating and flexible with guidelines as long as it doesn't interfere with other guests or damage property. Nice fishing pond, pool, recreation room, and even a meeting room for those with large groups. This is a great place for a meet-up or rally of 30 RVs or less. They no longer serve breakfast and the restaurant is closed on Wednesdays. Be sure to try their lunch buffet from 11am to 2pm. The seafood buffet with crab legs is great! Be sure to call if arriving after 5pm. Checkout is the usual 1PM but if you request a later checkout, they do their best to accommodate. They allow fire pits but ground fires are not allowed. Don't forget your bug spray. Gnats and bugs are plentiful just like any other campground in this area of the country. We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet country setting with level grassy sites, some shade a picnic table and the most accommodating hosts. This campground is one of the hidden gems. After all the busy, tight and expensive places we stayed at in Florida this was truly a breath of fresh air, pleasant and peaceful. We will return here whenever we are in the region. WiFi service is good. We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The owners have an on-site restaurant with daily specials, and a regular menu as well. We were here at Easter and enjoyed a wonderful assortment of homemade selections at a special buffet they served. Friday night is seafood buffet, all very good. Colquitt has many murals on buildings and structures as well as the Official Folk Life Play of Georgia, "Swamp Gravy". There are a few more murals in nearby Donalsonville. A nearby cemetery has two unique plots

Great little campground! Very nice owner! They have a restaurant on site with good food. We stayed for one night and didn't have to unhook, just ate supper in the restaurant. Paved level sites, paved roads. Very clean! We will be back to stay! We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A little off the beaten path, but a very quiet place. Some open spots as well as Pecan trees for shade (leaves were already gone). Very level sites on grass. My negative was a little narrow roads, but paved and easily negotiable. The restaurant was convenient and very good food and saved a trip to town. The owners were super and gave us great service. Usually travel I10 to Florida, but now will definitely come by here again for a break. We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Apparently this historic campground has had its share of owners over the decades.... But the new owners (since 2014) are really shining up this diamond in the rough! The lake is serene and relaxing. The area around the park is wide open spaces and quiet! The owners and their staff treat you like you're family. The restaurant serves up home cooking and they give a discount to campers! When we arrived, we felt like we were visiting our cousins! They go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible! We look forward to returning and seeing the progress as renovations take place for the bath house, mini golf etc.... But meanwhile, the full hookups, restaurant, lake, pool and quiet relaxation make for a very pleasant getaway! We camped at Emerald Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
