9 Parks near Eatonton, Georgia
Jul 2012 - $20.00
This campground is nicely wooded and most of the sites are shaded and level. While we enjoyed our stay, there are some pros and cons. Pros: level sites, quiet, not crowded, with a decent beach area. Cons: bath house was old and very dated, grass was overgrown, no trash receptacles anywhere in the park (had to go outside the gates to a dumpster), some sites have pea gravel but mine was dirt. Also the site I had was lower than the road. It rained one night so all of the water flooded our site. It appears that there are only two employees (the hosts) who work here. The campground is owned and operated by Georgia Power. I'm very surprised that they invest so little in the maintenance. Oh well, for 20 bucks what should I expect? - jconnally

This is a beauitful park on Lake Oconee - a real fisherman's park. There are nice level back in sites which were huge. The price was right for a two night stay. The park hosts were very nice and helpful as well. This one is on my list to return too. Only drawback was its a tad bit out of the way, but worth the drive. - User224

We celebrated Thanksgiving here with my family. This is a very clean campground with spacious sites. The facilities are a bit dated, but well cared for. Situated right on the lake with separate loops for RV & tent campers. Lots of trails to walk, friendly camp hosts, and neighborly campers. Some of the sites are far from being level, but otherwise a good place to kick back and enjoy some peace & quiet. - kdouthit

Gracious hosts, when they are there. Escorted me to site and helped get me set up. Site is immediately adjacent to power lines, busy and loud highway, as well as Georgia Power Plant Bridge. Bathroom is one stall, not necessarily cleaned or stocked with TP. Shower facility is a tiny, shower with trash on the floor. Most of the RVs there appeared to be itinerant workers. Convenient to many food choices. Sharp V in driveway made my little TT scratch going in and coming out. Uncertain if it would be problematic for a big rig, though there are clearly 5th Wheels and at least one motor home (appeared vacant). Prices are very reasonable for an area that has few CG options, but I can not recommend this as a desirable campground. (Never saw a cabin). Has access to Lake Sinclair, and provides rentals for jet ski's. Be aware the road noise is very loud, and grounds are not scenic, and the facilities are minimal. - Birdies

We pulled in here on May 25th at 8 p.m at near dusk. We located the camp host and he was very gracious and friendly showing us several sites that were pull through. The neighbors felt like people we had met before. Everyone was so friendly. Semi gravel sites. Water pressure was good. We had a storm blow through while we're here and the feeling was everyone was together and willing to help each other out any need. But there was no damage. There is an area to launch a boat and you can even rent a boat for $45 an hour but it was not available. We spent 2 nights here instead of one because it was welcoming. WiFi is available. Price was as listed and the price was only $30 a night. Ice across the street at the gas station for a dollar and a half for 20 pounds because the store was closed. Heidi our dog thought it was very dog friendly and she could even splash in the river. - Blue Ruby and Starry

Interesting spot, basically a fish camp. The major occupation of visitors is fishing and the campground also has a marina. About half the lots are taken up by people who rent by the year and park a camper for use on weekends. There was nothing disreputable or yucky about the campers so it seems the owner has standards. The far end of the campground has one row for permanent residents that is run down but it is a large campground so they are far away. There is a campground host living on site. We have stayed here several times and it is one of our favourite places. Dog friendly with a nice little riverside beach where dogs can swim too. Mature trees on a ridge so there is lots of shade. The campground is a spit of land jutting into the lake and there are numerous docks. Many of the campsites are right on the water and you could dock your boat next to your site if you wish. Those sites fill up fast so make a reservation. The inner campsites are clean neat and well ordered, long but a little narrow. The WIFI is great and cable has 44 channels. Staff are pleasant and helpful. - Judy Birchland

Our first time camping someplace other than a state park. One the one hand, it was very kid friendly with lots of other children for the grand kids to play with. On the other hand, you don't get the space you get in a state park. Sites are cramped but relatively easy to get to. Other than the lake, it is not particularly scenic. But, the staff were very friendly and overall it was a good experience. Would camp here again if we had the grandchildren, otherwise we still prefer state parks. - drewcher

After leaving another campground in the area due to deplorable conditions, our family was lucky to be able stay at Old Salem campground. For $20 per night, you get ultra clean, newer restrooms, laundry, two new playgrounds, boat ramp, beach, and spacious sites with new picnic tables. We do our fair share of camping resorts, state parks, and private parks. This has to be one of our favorite campgrounds. Nice layout and family friendly. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys any type of camping. Will be returning for 4th of July. - Lulubelle80

Clean, well kept park on Lake Oconee. Most sites are gravel and large with good spacing. Each site has a nice table, fire ring, and grill. Lots of shade trees means satellite locations are at a premium. This is one of the Georgia Power parks. Shopping, restaurants, and movies and about 2 miles away in an upscale shopping area. It gets really busy on the holidays so get reservations. The park usually closes immediately following Labor Day but this year the doing a trial and will be open until September 28. Stop by and check it out. - Pjoe

Hidden jewel! Never knew Georgia Power has such nice parks. The web sites are hard to find, but then a new world opens. The sites are reasonable level and spacious, even though they could be spaced apart a tad further. Great beach area and a rather large recreation area on the lake, with a large shelter. We were in the first section (closer to the entrance) and had a bath house all to ourself. Wonderful family bathroom with plenty of hot water and nice water pressure. We will certainly be back! - knay111

Georgia Power campgrounds as a rule are very nice and well run. This park is no exception. You must call for reservations, not available online. Check them out! - happygacamper

Not able to stay as we hoped as this park was closed in October when we got there. - Jamboee89

Georgia Power Lake and can obtain reservation information from their web site. Only about 5 miles south of Interstate 20. Walking distance to the beach and nice playground. Washer/dryer located at bath house, but didn't use them. I will camp here again. - Crop Guy

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

As of July 2016, this facility was a KOA (again?). This "resort" is not at a resort standard. The camground requires that you unhitch your tow vehicle prior to entry because of the narrow roads. The site they put us in would not accommodate our 30 ft coach. It was too steep of an entry to the site and our back bumper dug into the dirt. After much debate, they moved us to a site across the way from the original site. After dragging our bumper along the cement for about 5 feet due to a steep entry, an employee commented about how lucky we were to get the shadiest site. We did not appreciate that since it was so difficult to enter the site. It was over 100 degrees when we checked in about 6 pm this day.
The restroom facility we found had exposed electrical wires, and no mirrors. We were unable to find the shower facilities. The entry gate requires a code to enter. The employee who was guiding us to the site opened it for us, but we were never given the code. It wasn't an issue for us since we arrived about 6 pm and knew we were leaving early the next morning. If we had known Lake Oconee Village was so close, we might have had dinner out while the RV cooled off. Entry into park is deceptive of park quality. Road into park from I-20 is very narrow.
Another review mentions a view of the lake. From our site, we could not see or hear the lake. If we hadn't taken a walk later that evening, we wouldn't have know the lake existed. The sites were not easy to use the hookups, based on their locations and how you had to park at each site. We rated site as bad because of the entry issues and hookup issues. - Ms Winnie

The park is large and has lots of nice features. It is "rustic" and in need of repair. The decks at each site are wonderful, but are falling apart. Need paint and replacing rotting boards. The rest of the park is in the same shape. The sites are all tiered on hillsides, makes them all have a unique view of the lake, lovely. We can hear the waves lapping at the shore from our site, nice. Many trees, so no satellite dish can operate in our site unless we put out the portable one. No cable, and we could not receive any over the air channels. No biggie, kind of nice. Both pools are closed for repairs, so you might ask when they are going to be functional. Our site is not what you call spacious as far as the pad, but it is not near to any other sites. The hookups were not easy because they end up being under the slide out. - beach89bum

Newly converted to KOA - and still working at coming up to what you find at most other KOAs (at least in our experience). Our experience was very poor due to the to physical facilities related to site levelness and at least one very good opportunity for a "high center" danger.
Upon our arrival we were checked in by a courteous staff member. We were assigned to our spot and off we went. The only KOAs that we've stayed that we were not guided to our spot.
This is where the issues started. The "pull through" we were assigned to was a dirt spot - not gravel, not concrete but dirt. "Pull through" is a misnomer here - the sites are very short with severe angles and corners to cut around. With our gasser Class A our levelers couldn't level out. We changed sites 3 more times before I found a washed out site that I could level on BUT when you opened the door the bottom step was about 18" off the ground. The electrical box was leaning severely towards the water faucet and the lid was difficult to open.
After complaining I was reassigned to another spot. A back-in . I did a recon of the site and figured I could back in. I did only to find out there was 30 amp service only. (Note: I was very specific in needing a 50 amp service.) So I was again reassigned to a spot just above where I was sitting. As I looked the spot over I noticed what I believe to be a very serious problem - the real possibility of "HIGH CENTER". If you don't know what a high center danger is - I advise you to learn. In my 22 year US Army career I have seen this problem - it So I did a K turn with my 38' sports car and avoided the possible danger. Then went to a new spot. We made it work - but it wasn't easy.
In the end - this has real possibilities BUT for now avoid this place. It is about 10 miles off the I-20.
While the staff is pleasant - there are SERIOUS problems with the facility. This place has real potential but can be a real danger.
AVOID. - bigben

While the entrance is a bit short and cramped with the office right there, once you are registered and inside a ways it is very easy to maneuver and unhook. We had a back in site which was ample for a 40' with toad. Nice areas to walk dogs. It seems that most people pick up keeping the campground clean. The worst area for non-compliance was the fenced dog pen. Limited number of pull thru sites but easy back in sites. We were in a very shaded site between two large trees. FHU with Cable TV & Wi-Fi...no problems connecting and getting email. Nice views and beautiful sunset. Very well kept grounds and facilities. You can tell the owners and staff care about their campground. Very friendly and helpful staff. Most relaxing stay. We have camped here before for just an overnight and want to come back and spend more time in this charming area. - SerenityRVing

Very overpriced. Sites are very close and no shade. The sewer connection is higher than the site and everyone knows it does not run uphill. The entry is very close and room for only 1 unit to turn in. We had to drive into town and make a u-turn since there was a motor home checking and no place to enter and get off the two-lane highway. - Wanda Wonderful

Stayed here 2 nights. Entry to the park is somewhat awkward off the highway, but once in the park maneuvering was easy. We were in one of not many pull-through sites and it was very nice up on the hill. We would stay here again. - Zak16
