Wonderful surprise. This is a small quiet campground on the lake. Great boat access with a ramp in the campground. Lots of activities for the whole family. Golf course, Frisbee golf course, hiking, biking, and swimming. We loved it. We camped at Richard B. Russell State Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is really geared for people who like to fish. Several campers also had boats, mostly pontoons, docked near their sites. There are only a few sites that easily accommodate large rigs. We drove through twice to find one for our 30' fifth wheeler. But the one we picked out, number 9, was a little easier to back into and I still had about 20' behind the camper and 15' in front after stopping. Landscaping is nice and the bathrooms were very clean. There are no newspapers, no Internet access and no cell phone coverage at all. If you need to stay in touch with civilization, this is not for you. We stayed for one cold night and moved on to our next stop. This park is off the beaten path and not near any interstates. Do a little planning to get there because our Tom Tom GPS was wanting to send us down dirt roads (not acceptable). We camped at Richard B. Russell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The pull-through site I selected was very level, with small-sized gravel as a ground cover. (I consider this a plus, because it's easier to walk on). Electric and cable hookups worked very well. Large gravel covers the hiking paths, so if you plan to do serious walking, you'll want shoes that will protect you from the chunkier stones. That said, you can get in plenty of mileage just staying on the roadway. The water level at this lake wasn't as low as at some of the other state parks (e.g., Tugaloo & Mistletoe), which boaters will appreciate. If you come with a squirrel-crazy dog, be forewarned: there are a lot of "tree rats" around! The front office personnel were some of the friendliest I've met in any of the Georgia state parks, and there was plenty of heat in the restroom. The washer and dryer are in an enclosed room (not outside), and even though the dryer is the economy-kind (where a load only costs 75 cents), it dried a huge load of laundry which included denim pants. The only drawbacks: I couldn't get cellphone service, and my Internet Aircard didn't get a signal, either. We camped at Richard B. Russell State Park in a Motorhome.

There are not very many sites, but they are well spaced and shady. The restrooms and showers were clean and well lit. Everyone was friendly. Their is a really nice swimming beach with a sandy area and no wake zone. Several playgrounds and boat ramps. And the golf course was excellent - beautiful views, hilly and challenging without being impossible. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Richard B. Russell State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Small number of sites but a very attractive and well-kept state park in the fine Savannah River lakes area. Curiously, the most recent AAA guidebook says it has no showers, but it actually does. Also limited cable TV available. We camped at Richard B. Russell State Park in a Motorhome.

Small campground in state park facility. Tight alleys in some spots. Big rigs not recommended. Great golf course if that is your thing. We camped at Richard B. Russell State Park in a Travel Trailer.
