Campground is closed - Craven's Pottery is no longer in business. - paularonson
Sep 2006 - $20.00
Roads, trees and sites are poorly maintained. Office is unmanned -- self check-in. Security is questionable -- a guard drives through periodically. Campground is difficult to get into and even more difficult to get out of. - Hawk37

Tucked behind Craven Pottery this is a nice place to stay while traveling through the area. Sites are paved and will handle the big rigs. Check in/out was done on the honor system - cash or check only. Reserved sites were clearly marked so somebody does a daily check on the campground. Many trees so don't expect your satellite TV to work...cable would have been nice. A small stream runs by some of the sites. No playground or pool or amenities for children. Pets allowed. A good overnight stop or a place to stay while shopping at the local outlet malls. Didn't see any security services but there were no problems. A little noise from I-85. We would stay here again. - paularonson

Easy to reach. No problem for a 40ft M/H with toad. Many longterm trailers but neat. Overnight stop only. Access roads are gravel and dirt. - Chuck333
Nov 2015 - $25.00
Just a one night stop over. Easy to find. Roads could do with a little work. Several puddled areas and some muddy sites. Not really any ideal area to walk a dog due to mud and puddles. But in fairness it has been a wet time for at least 2 weeks, so everything is saturated. Minimal lighting at night which meant a great nights sleep. Friendly staff. We were told one site when booking then redirected when we arrived. - witchey1

We stopped here for one night and have no complaints. The site was packed dirt but level. It would be messy if wet. We tested with a power management system and our utilities worked well. The office person was friendly and check in was quick. This was a good park for us as a stopover on I 85. - HaveDieselWillTravel

Nice small park with lots of hiking, golf and playgrounds. The campsites are very level and look to have been recently re-graveled. Excellent fire rings. Both the hosts and the rangers were very nice and helpful.
The hiking trails include one to a beaver pond. Most of the trails are about 8ft. wide with some hills but great for family hiking.
Only reason I didn't give it a 10 is, if you're not into Golf or Hiking there isn't much else to do here. - Buddy Ray

Very nice Park, very clean, about 15 miles off 85, good road to it, well marked. Most sites are gravel, level, fire pit, table and post on large patio. Very clean bath house and laundry. A few paved sites, most sites are large, some pull thus. No problems with big rigs, limited air TV, most are open to dish use, good Verizon cell and data. Nicest tent areas I have ever seen at any park. They have a summing pool during the warm season. Not far to food and other things. Over all a great park, most GA parks are pretty nice. Would stay here again, very peaceful. - rmckee

This is a beautiful park in north Georgia. There was no park host so no wood or ice available. Very quiet..there was only one other camper. Will be back when weather is warmer. - drewcher
Sep 2016 - $32.00
Visited for a long weekend. Best showers/restrooms bar none. Sites were clean but dated. No sewer, very few site grey water dumps. Friendly staff. More camp hosts than one can shake a stick at. I've never seen a camp with a street light before. Lake had some lime green slime/moss looking stuff floating around. Not sure what that is all about. Post sewage spill 2014 still skeptical of eating caught fishes. Camp/recreation areas seemed to be a very odd layout. Everything recreational seemed to be on the opposite side of the park. Would visit again. - Phill

Having only a few 50 amp sites is ridiculous for the number of RVers that have motor homes or RVs that require 50 amp service. To make matters worse, the park allowed a pop up to use Site 35 which is 50 amp. Only large rigs should be allowed in that site which has 50 amp. Fort Yargo needs to rethink their method of assigning sites or change the 50 amp sites to be only available for RVs; no pop ups.
We have been to Fort Yargo on 6 trips of at least a week as we have family that live in the area. With the acreage of this park, camping sites should be large and more plentiful.
Finally, having most of Campground 1 closed because the building of the new bathhouse was deleted is a travesty. Some state executive needs to be fired for delaying this project until a very busy time of the year. Loss of income for 18 closed sites is Huge. - SewSoBeachy

A nice state park CG. 30amp in most sites with only a handful of 50amp in both loops. Sites range from 20-25 feet to well over 60 feet. Due to moronic state practice the CG is "first come first served" so if you need a larger site due to rig size you better get here mid-week to insure finding an adequately sized site. Great hiking trail around the lake of almost 7 miles. I thought I was in decent hiking shape and this one kicked my, well, you know. No full hook-ups but good water/electric service. Most GA State parks have convenient gray water char pits for easy disposal of gray water.
The park is just out of downtown Winder, GA. Winder is trying to revitalize the old downtown area and it has some very decent restaurants. The Bar-b-que place is very good.
I think the daily rate is too high for what the CG offers and having to show up a day or two early to get a decent site really stinks. GA State parks, so close to great but yet so far versus the COE CG's down the road. - bodyshop bob

This is an old park. It has several permanent campers. The trees are over grown. There were trees that the leaves and limbs scraped the top and sides of our motor home. We will not stay here again. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

Great park for overnight. No WIFI. Road construction till next summer at entrance so watch closely for sign. Gravel entrance to pull-thrus, paved entrance for back-ins. Owner and hosts very friendly. 3 1/2 pull thrus for big rigs, (1/2 too tight of a turn for our 40ft to turn into, other 3 OK, tight turn to exit from pull-through to leave campground. Stayed for a week would stay again if pull-through available. - mserafin
