We camped with our Good Sams Club. It's a very nice park. Camp sites are easy in and out and big. The only thing we noticed was, the first night, the bathrooms were not very clean. We rarely saw the camp host and had to ask the main office to have the bathrooms cleaned. After that it was clean for the week. The one thing we didn't like was the fact there were tree branches down which had not been picked up. No one had gone around and inspected sites as the tag for the people before us was still on the clip board even though they had left. Trash was in the fire ring We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Motorhome.

It's the site of an old grist mill from the early 1900's so lots of history to see and trails to hike. Not much else to do. There is a Antique store on the old Hwy 72 outside of Comer that has tons of stuff, vintage clothes and old iron works for restoring old homes.

Campground was very nice. The loop and some of thes sites are a little tight for big rigs. Bathrooms were very clean. Amenities included canoe and paddle boat rental along with several hiking trails. Had a great time enjoying the shoals below the covered bridge. AT&T Cell coverage was weak but available. No WiFi. Most sites are pull through. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice Georgia state park, with lots of hiking and biking trails available. The campground is nice and small, rather tight for a big rig. Many sites are "pull-throughs" but of the short half-moon type, so for a long trailer they are in fact back-ins. Surprisingly for a Georgia state park, the restrooms were not all that clean. Perhaps the absence of a host during our stay explains that. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Traveling on a late Saturday afternoon, many parks were full, but WMB had plenty of vacancies. Many of the gravel sites are pull through, spacious, and shaded. Camping fee ($28) plus $5 GA park pass = $33. Our Class B was able to drive through the covered bridge. This is a nice place for an overnight stop. Average bathhouses: but clean. There are a few trails, one goes to the ruins of the mill. Some of the locals swimming in the river. There were some canoes that probably the SP rents. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Motorhome.

All right as far as State parks goes, but absolutely nothing to do or see in the area. A boring place to camp. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small, beautiful park, that you enter off GA highway 22. Sites are spacious and most all are very shaded. The tent camping area is separate. The campground is at the 1885 Watson’s Mill Covered Bridge (restored). The river has a rock bottom and shallow water, making for a great place to play and relax. The bathhouse is nice, roads are paved and sites are rocked, which keeps it cooler. All RV sites have electric, water, picnic tables and fire rings.The location is rural, but only 20 miles to Athens, smaller towns are closer. We stayed here for 3 days. This is a great campground and we would stay again! We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful little park. Very clean. Lovely hosts. Got there just in time for leaf peak. Trails are fun. Bridge is fun. Some in our group went kayaking. Sites are large and very level. Have nothing but good remarks about this park. Great (close) get-away from Atlanta. I'm not sure my rate is accurate. I'm a friend of Georgia Parks, and I also get a senior discount. Can't beat Georgia State Parks--some are just a little better than others--this is one of those. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very small park, but very woodsy and quiet. Almost all of the sites are Pull-Thrus, very level and clean. There are 2 ways to enter the park, with one bringing you in through the covered bridge. Because of the height and weight limits, big rigs cannot go through the bridge. Georgia highway 22 will take you in another way. Be aware that a GPS will not take you this way, but follow the signs. We chose this park because it was 30 minutes from Athens. During the summer they offer canoeing and paddle boating. We would definitely go to this park again. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The pull through campsites are excellent. Lots of shade and a great view. The river was a little low, but canoing was still fun. The waterfall was an excellent place to cool off on a hot day. This state park is very close to my house and I am sure we are going to camp here quite a bit. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Motorhome.

We checked in after hours in the park and found a level pull through and never had to unhook. The Camp Host was very helpful. She even drove my wife around to look at the horse stables and facilities. That's Southern Hospitality at its best! Beautiful, quiet park easily accessed with beautiful scenery. We only stayed one night but will make this a stop off point while traveling. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very picturesque. Longest original site covered bridge in the State of Georgia. Fishing, hiking and bike trails; canoe and pedal boat rentals and horse back riding. Very clean bathrooms and showers. Great campground for family reunions. We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park in a Travel Trailer.
