7 Parks near Covington, Georgia
Sep 2015 - $15.00
We stayed here from Sept. to Dec. due to it being close to my husband's job. The other people in the park were also mostly long term. Most people were nice, but some were of questionable character. No one follows the rules for leashing their dogs, many just run freely through the park. If there is an issue it is not addressed in a timely manner. Almost none of the washers or dryers work in the laundromat. We were on lot C which flooded overnight on Christmas, which we were woke up at 6am to move by a resident not the maintenance or management. The Wi-Fi is sporadic at best. The only good points were management is very nice, and hook ups are consistent, although my daughter was having some skin issues that have now disappeared since we have left and are no longer showering with the water there. If I could give zero stars I would. Our nightly rate is an average as we paid monthly at $400. - A W

This park has improved since our previous stays! It's still not beautiful, but the terribly junky units have disappeared, and most of the seasonal places are well cared for. The restrooms are still pretty horrible, but we were pleasantly surprised by the changes. - lelblair

I have to agree with one of the other posters on this campground, which is really a mobile home park with some RV sites available. The electricity is solid, water tested good. There's only 5 or 6 50amp sites, the rest are 30amp. It's quiet and all paved. Although some of the paving can be a bit rough. Although it's a little on the rough side, meaning old and very worn out, if you need somewhere to stay near Covington, (which we did) then it's not that bad. - b2bowers

Took my two grandsons for a 2 night stay at this State Park near my home. The park has recently undergone a large renovation and in my opinion it was tax money well spent. Campsites have been upgraded with new gravel, roads repaved, underbrush cleared, etc. Park has lots to offer. We played real golf, putt putt, and the boys went swimming at the beach area. A few sites added sewer hookups and the cable was being re-done while we were here. My only complaints were no wifi or cell phone service, and my pull thru site was a little off level. If you have stayed here before, give it another try. Much improved. - dennish

Beautiful site but regular campground and all facilities closed for construction. 11 sites available in equestrian area. No sewage or dump site. Hard to understand signs and maps Host and ranger very helpful. Construction completion maybe done July. - Always young

Better than we expected! Large and clean sites with plenty of space. We stayed at #26 and it was flat. Sites closer to the stream are smaller, but there is still plenty of room for a fifth wheel or large travel trailer. People are supper friendly and bath houses were clean. It was quiet and there is space for any size camper in the park. Large swim area and a small lake for small boat with no motors as well. The only thing is the bath house near the circle with lake views is not updated. - gsimichele

We only stayed one night at this campground and that was in the overnight section, so I don't know how it would be for a long stay. I think I'd like to come back and spend some time here. The people in the office are very nice. The sites are long and level. The hook-ups convenient, except for the cable tv. We were in site 58; site 57 would have been better for the cable. That is on a pole shared by two sites, so it is close for one site but far for the other. - mrpeepers

Yes, the roads are paved, but narrow. The sites are gravel, but uneven. I'd disconnected the towed, so I could move around on the site to get the rig level. There appears no maintenance is done, as the site was trashy and needed mowing. We stayed two nights, but the park is really only good for an overnight stay. - ETX

This park does not offer any discounts other than coupons found on their web site. However, we found that since we were unable to print the coupons as we had no printer with us in our motorhome, they would not honor even their own coupons without a hard copy.
The park is easily accessible and is located about a mile south of I-20 on highway 441.
We've stayed at this park three times over the last couple years and it has improved considerably this past year after the main roads in the park were paved. The sites remain gravel/dirt. About half the park are long term residents, but overnighters are parked in the sites located nearer the front of the park.
This park is okay for an overnight stop, but we wouldn't recommend it for much more than this. - Johnson's

My family and I stayed here the required 2 night minimum on our return trip from Florida. Access to the campground is easy and internal roads were a mix of paved and gravel that were easy to navigate. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a newer section of the campground that was close to Stone Mountain Lake and contained yurts and new park model RVs for rent. We tried to use the pool that was nearby but arrived after is had closed for the day. It looked clean and well maintained. Stone Mountain has its own adventure park that is about 1.5 miles from the campground and is accessible by either car (free parking is available) or a shuttle. We spent the entire day there and ended the day with their laser show that is projected onto the face of Stone Mountain where the likenesses of Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Jefferson Davis are carved. It is a popular event so arrive early to get a good spot. - HighCountry_trio

There were lots of positives and negatives to this campsite, but overall our experience was a good one.
- The signage in the park is nonexistent. If you don't have a map, you will never know where the campground is. It is a couple of miles past the west entrance of the park.
- The park sent us an email a couple of days in advance reminding us of the low clearance level on the east gate and directions on how to get to the west gate. Nice action on their part.
- The roads inside the campgrounds are badly in need of repair. Driving slow is a must, even without the rig.
- Lots of sites, so look closely before you book. The sites are on hills, and elevation is not indicated, so it is easy to get one that is on a incline or low spot. We chose a site far from the office because it looked less crowded, not covered by trees and had a view of the lake. We had no problems backing in our 34' rig and satellite worked great.
- Forget WiFi. It never worked. Fortunately, Stone Mountain is close enough to Atlanta to get good cell coverage so we used our cellular data lines.
- The pool is small, but nice. We were lucky enough to be there mid-week after school started so it was completely empty. But it closes at 6. Why a campground would close a pool that early is beyond me.
- The shower / bathroom facilities were old and unattractive. One look and I never used them.
- There is the Stone Mountain entrance fee of $15 that is not included in the camping price. Irritating but to be expected.
- There is no better access to Stone Mountain Park than this campground. Despite the negatives, the sites are beautiful and it is really convenient to move around the park from this campground. - PBW

This was a beautiful Campground! Very clean and large sites. We were fortunate to get a lakeside lot. Free shuttle to the Stone Mountain attraction. Note: You will have to pay a one-time $15 parking fee to get into and park at the campground. We had a 50% discount with Passport America. Regular price was $56 per night. Worth it, though! - Debbie12376

This is a very nice, well maintained and quiet park. It is a mobile home and RV park, with mobile homes and RV site co-mingling. The sites are nice and wide, there is well established grass and trees, but no trees are in the way of your parking. Every site also has a concrete pad for a picnic table, lawn chairs or whatever you like. There is also a swimming pool to enjoy. There are very few RV parks in the Atlanta area, but this is a nice one. I highly recommend this park. - Freedom73

This is a challenging place to get to if you don't plan your route carefully. Office help gives directions on phone - pay close attention. If coming from west you'll have to get turned around and that will be a challenge. We came in from the east so didn't have to deal with that but the sign for the park is very small and you have to take it slow so be cautious.
This is a Mobile Home park slowing converting to RVs. Interior streets are paved with lots of, not very visible, speed bumps. Sites are stone, varying degrees of level depending on site, very spread out (spacious). Utilities placed well. Water pressure very high so use a regulator. Wifi available at our site and was fast. Verizon signal strong. Traffic noise from very busy Hwy 78. We would stay here again if in the area.
Note: Dec 2015 review must be the other park based on comments made. - cwier

Clean. A bit noisy with children & boy scouts running about. Well laid out. Bathrooms and trash cans attended to routinely. Nicely stocked store on site. Only real negative would be signage was small and not reflective, horribly difficult to navigate with an after dark arrival. Luckily the DW was in a separate vehicle and guided me in over phone.
Be aware this site (C83 orange) lacked grass adjacent to your entry door & picnic table, thus dirt pickup was an issue. Site is just across from bathhouse, so lots of traffic to & fro. Site faces through woods, the tent camping area. We had two different scout troops just across the way, and this site is the short cut to the bathrooms (scouts & non-scouts), thus, lots of walking traffic, running traffic, and noise. We plan to come back, just will look for a different site. - trimacon

The sites are within 10 foot either side of camper, roads are rough, cypher lock on bathhouse/latrine does not work or wrong code from staff. Staff friendly but I will not stay here again, may be OK for an overnight stop but nothing else. Power dropped several times so be sure to have a surge protector on your camper, also, make sure you have a water filter. Bottom line, only in an emergency would I recommend this campground, as it is very definitely NOT a resort. - Don45

We were hesitant to stop at this park considering the previous reviews, but it was getting late. We found the staff to be very nice, the pull-thru quite handy. Considering we are 40' plus a dolly and van, we need the space to make turns. It was not an issue for us. I would agree with a previous reviewer that the road was a little rough with all the speed bumps. - SAMD6

Speed bumps are bad, not needed. Roads are narrow and in pretty bad condition. Go slow. Staff was friendly and helpful with a couple of problems we had with tow vehicle. Sites are smallish and fairly close together. Most campers appear to be fairly permanent worker type RVs. Park OK for overnight stay but would not stay long term. Did not try the WiFi. Due to the roads and bumps etc, we did not hook up dinghy until we had left the park. - raysman

The campgrounds hosts were very helpful and friendly. They worked on keeping the bathrooms clean Labor Day weekend. The park itself has some tight hairpin turns, which made it somewhat difficult to navigate with my 32' motorhome while pulling the car. The gravel pads were level. The sites are pretty good size for the most part. There are a good number of mature trees providing decent shade. The beach was in rough shape at the end of the summer season. - Cap'n G

We stayed here 4 nights with two other camping couples. We have camped many state parks in the last 3 years and Georgia continues to have some of the nicest and cleanest parks that we have stayed in. Indian Springs was no exception. The staff was very nice and helpful, the campsites were clean, no trash or ashes in the fire rings, and the restrooms were cleaned everyday that we were there. Would highly recommend this campground. - junmy3

RV sites are first come, first served, and include only 2 50-amp lots and 1 pull-through. Off/shoulder season best as sites are close together although offset to give most a view. Lovely CCC stone buildings around were built around the ancient spring first used by Native Americans for alleged health benefits. You're free to drink, bottle or lather the sulfurous water on affected body parts. Didn't cure the writer's arthritis. "'Multiuse' Trail" only for hikers and very experienced and well-conditioned mountain bikers. "Nature Trail" can be hiked by those in average condition. Park has miles of paved road with a lot of "hoops and hollers" (up and downs) that will challenge bike riders in only fair condition. Lovely stream near the entrance with lots of flat rocks can be climbed. Day use area has beach and is well away from camping spots. Fishing available. Town couple tenths of a mile from park entrance had only one open shop, a general store with everything from bug spray to worms for fishing, and an open-carry clerk. Well worth a couple days stay. - Mtmoi
