We didn't have reservations and had to stay in an overflow lot, but we did have30 amp and water from a hose, and we're happy to have a place to stay. The park is mostly full timers, the owner or manager said they are full almost every night year round. It is older, but not bad, and very friendly. There aren't many campgrounds in this part of north GA, and it was easy on and off the main highway. There is a through road between the park and the overflow lot and the traffic zooms by, but it quieted down after dark and the highway noise wasn't too bad. - Ginny H

Poor interior roads, could use some gravel. Site had potholes.
Garbage in the fire pit. Grass is overgrown.
Overnight only. - Iceman567

This campground looks nothing like the photos on their WEB site. There are lot of long term residents. There is no cable TV available and using the TV Antenna you will receive about six (6) channels (3 of which are in Spanish).
The "recreation hall" is a dump. It has a TV with cable and a collection of furniture that looks like it was scavenged from the side of the road. - Crabman

Camp Cherry Log was a very enjoyable side trip on our route to our family vacation in Florida this year... The area was scenic and beautiful and the park attendants were sooooo friendly. We didn't spend much time at the park itself because this was only a 1-day stopover and we spent a great deal of time in town, taking a scenic railway tour among other touristy things to do. Very pleasant experience nonetheless and we would recommend to anyone without hesitation. - jetsfan1234

This campground is in a beautiful and remote area which appealed to us. It is an old campground though with very narrow sites unsuitable for rigs with slide outs. Our 27 foot fifth wheel with one slide out would not fit and we ended up leaving. - Ruth Baker

This place is far from a resort. The main roads are paved, very narrow, very steep and very sharp turns. The roads along the camp sites are gravel. The sites are narrowly carved out of the mountain side, but fairly level. Although we had reservations and they knew we were on our way, there was a lock on the electric and the water. We received 2 answers as to why they were locked, one was that other campers were causing problems, but when the maintainence man arrived, he said they keep it locked to avoid theft. Be prepared to wait an hour or more to get the locks removed. The country side was beautiful and we saw a lot of deer, but the overall campground was not worth the money and will not be back. - esta34950

We discovered this Campground at the Tampa RV show and were excited to find it. It, apparently, is a semi-private CG located within a 5500 acre gated development. The sites are beautiful and very secluded. However, getting a reservation was a two day event, three weeks prior to our visit. Once we finally arrived at the gate, they had our anme, but the gate guard couodn't give us correct directions to the camping area. Pulling a 36' Fifth Wheel makes it quite difficult to make U-turns on narrow mountain roads. Once we finally (!) arrived at our camp site, the water and power hookups were still under lock and key, so we waited an hour before the 'ranger' came to unlock, only to find 30 amp service, and we need 50. Although we were told they had 'full hook-up', we had no TV, not even with our antenna. Wifi is very iffy on the mountains and it too, was not available. However, the area is just beautiful. The sites could use a little care, but they were adequate. We enjoyed our stay, but wish we would have received the proper information prior to our visit. By the way, the roads leading to the campsite, although paved, are very narrow and curvy, and can look quite scary at times, especially to my wife who's my navigator. It was hard for her to navigate with her eyes closed. LOL. I would not return. - Gus the Fireant

This is a pretty place and the lake is beautiful as well, but all the of the nice sites are taken by permanent residents. They will put you in "outback " loop which is described perfectly by its name. Very hilly and not any where close to semi level, cable didn't work,, even after they "fixed" it, the 15 amp auxiliary plug was burned out (our RV power connector did work though.) The wifi did not work unless you were close to the office. The owner claimed it was because of the mountains yet it was only about 150 yards direct line of site to our spot. I went to all the open sites in this loop and no usable signal at any. The owner did eventually give me a password to one the other residents private wifi and it worked fine. I counted only 8 sites out 50 + that were available to non permanent residents -- of course they were all in this back loop. The lake and public areas plus the bath house is lovely. If you do deside to stay here bring PLENTY of leveling blocks and don't plan on sitting outside if being on a 20 dog slope bothers you.
We would not stay here again if we had to stay this back part of the campground. - N4cty

I stayed in this nature sanctuary of a park for all of April 2016. It is now one of my favorite campgrounds after 2.5 years of being full timers. The owner of the park and his family are friendly, attentive and overall really good people. Space! You have lots of room between you and other campers and to explore. The lake, around the lake and all the other natural areas are great for any nature lovers. There is this magical little wooded place within the park that is named, Ferngully. You really feel like you've stepped into another time in this space full of ferns, wildflowers and abundant green growth all around. There's a nice path the owners have built in this section. This park is situated in gorgeous rolling hill countryside of North Georgia. You have apple orchards all around you. Since you are in a hilly, mountainous area, you'll definitely want to have levelers. You're only 15 minutes away from the quaint, progressive town of Ellijay that has everything you could need(Wal-Mart, a fabulous Ingles grocery store, health food stores, a historic downtown full of boutiques and there's two Starbucks(one inside of the Ingles). - Cappy Jack

Camped here in October with my RV club. We came here for the Apple Festival. The park was very nice and the people running it were very friendly. Will come back here again. - Phillip D

Great campground with level sites and concrete pads. We stayed in site 4. The campfire ring was right outside the door of our 40' motorhome so we didn't use it during our stay. The dump station was nearby but over two significant speed bumps so we opted to "carry our load. :-) Good Verizon service. Sites have views of lake through the trees/underbrush this time of year. Laundry area with one washer($0.75) and one dryer($1.00) worked well. Very hilly area. Be wary of steep curvy entrance and low hanging tree limbs on roads! VERY popular on weekends. Some sites have wooden patios. - Terry P

Wow, one of those campgrounds you hate to leave. The best COE campground we have found and the area and view were wonderful. Decent OTA tv and Verizon 4G. Back-in site with concrete pad and huge deck, the camphost said we would love the site and he was correct. The turns and slopes getting into the park are a little bit of a challenge, but it is worth it. We would definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity and hated to leave. - jtl2

Beautiful park with playgrounds for kids and a boat ramp and picnic area on the lake. Sites are quite large with concrete patios and crushed rock tent pads. Many sites have good views of lake, and there are some premium sites with wooden decks. Park is 9 miles from Ellijay, and it is only a few more miles to several apple orchards. - SunnyTravelers

Sites are very level paved concrete. Bath facilites are well maintained and spotless. Sites are very spacious and well separated. Lakefront sites are high about the lake, it order to access the lake you must walk down a steep grade. Views of the lake is difficult because of the beautiful trees. Campground is well managed and cared for. - Paythebill

The campground was very clean, many private sites, hosts very friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning to Doll Mountain.
This campground is on Carter's Lake but many of the sites are very shady and private but you can hardly see the lake. But, the trees are beautiful and the campground is quiet. Our site was too close to the entrance for my comfort and had much thru traffic. Next time we'll choose a site farther from the entrance. We had a very enjoyable stay and will return. - AnnieB

One of our favorite N. Georgia campgrounds. The loop we are in is more open and several sites are suitable for satellite reception. There is another RV loop that overlooks Lake Carter too but is heavily treed and satellite reception will not be possible. Lots of other small sites along the main road suitable for pop-ups and tents. - SunnyTravelers

Clean, quiet, safe, gorgeous campground on Carters Lake. Some sites are less spacious, so check map. However all are pretty good with at least some view of lake. We will definitely camp here again. - RBD-FL

The 4.2 mile entrance road to this campground reminds me of "The Devils Tail". Lots of twists, turns, ups and downs; but, the road is wide enough and in good condition so it shouldn't be a problem for even the largest rig if you're careful. Watch out for motorcycles on this road.
The CG is very nice. Carter Lake is a high mountain lake and the locals say it's a few degrees cooler in the summer. Like all COE parks, this one is well laid out for the terrain. However, the designer had some challenges on this one because of the narrow peninsulas. The lengths listed online are for the pad only; there is additional space in the site for a tow/towed vehicle. Because of the terrain many sites are oriented so the door faces the road and not the lake. Refer to the campground map on Recreation. gov to see these. Camp sites 18, 19, 21, 31, 32 and 33 (maybe a few more) are narrow with the "sitting area" behind the site instead of adjacent to the door side. These are still good sites, but don't allow much sitting area beside the camper. Most of the sites have a good view of the lake, although they are higher than the lake level in elevation. Some sites have decks or large door side sitting areas. There is a small swimming area with benches provided in a viewing area. Site 20 overlooks the swimming area. Good Verizon cell phone coverage. There is only one bath house for 40 sites, but it is clean and in good repair. Plenty of hot water in the showers with "real" controls (not a push button). The access loop for the dump station is a little short - fifth wheels have to "swing wide" for the proper approach. Also, the dump station has a little forward slope which doesn't allow complete draining of some of your tanks. Reports are the fishing is good with lake trout and bass. This is a nice, quiet campground. We will return. - Bama Camper

A lot of fishermen camp here at this small but very deep lake. It's our go to place when we don't want to burn a lot of gas and can have neighbors come out to visit.
We stay in a 35 ft motor home and I don't think I've seen any bigger rigs there. We have a couple of favorite sites. Some sites are narrow and your fire ring and table are behind your unit. Almost all sites are shady. The CG is on a ridge line so they had to get creative with the site placements.
The shower house was clean but could use some updating. - Lainee131

We stayed here in a 45' motor coach. This is a pretty campground, with lots of potential, but it is not there yet. 3/4 are full timers, some who looks rundown, and others are very neat. For Motor coaches, the entrance is about a 110 degrees turn in and exit, with a very hard slope, so enter slowly, and expect a lot of twisting. We may not come back, for that reason, and the price for what you get. It was close to the friends we were visiting in the area. Most other campgrounds in the area were w/e only. This one had w/e/s. The grass was cut, the park was neat but still needs some ground repair. The interior one lane road was assault. The RV sites were gravel/grass. They have several small camping/tent sights next to the river. We were on site 12. It was not bad backing into. We did have to drive down a gravel lane (where there are more tent sites) just far enough to get lined up for backing, and then back in to site 12. After walking around though, for large rigs site # 2 (which was just taken before we got there), 12, and 21 are good sites. Here on #12, even with trees, we were still able to get direct sat hookup. The bathrooms were clean, the showers stalls were small, they did some rerouting of the plumbing outside the walls, and that made it looked unkept, but both bathrooms needs renovations. Again, this is a pretty park, with a little more work, it could be really nice. Not much to offer so for 50 amp hook up, $40.00 I felt was a little high. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

Very small place. Only a few sites available due to permanent residents. NOT big rig friendly. Very tight right turn into CG. No staff on site. Sites not level. Low branches (real low). Owner, who we spoke with on phone was polite and friendly. - TRDAWG

Not sure why this park doesn't get better ratings. It's quiet, spacious, peaceful and pretty. Fairly level and HUs work well. $30 per night seems excessive, though. GREAT BBQ place on the corner. - TheRollingJones

Very nice park and everything others have said is accurate about the facilities. I was surprised that the premium sites have cable TV and that I could get a Verizon signal on my phone. Not terribly strong, but strong enough for intermittent Internet access, phone and text. I suggest you bring bear spray and/or noise makers as the bears are very active! - DD Jones

This was our first stay at this park, we camped in campground 1, our site was a handicap and flooded each time it rained although the water did drain pretty fast a wheelchair would still have problems getting around. We saw 1 of the camp host sitting at her picnic table while we were there, no camp host came around. If you asked a question it was answered. The rangers at the camp store were for the most part helpful and friendly. The trails that we hiked were maintained and easy to hike, the beach area was very clean and so was the playground. Our only complaint really is that the campsites in campground one could use some attention, campground 2 looked like they had more gravel and were better maintained. I am not sure that we would visit this park again, it just didn't appeal to us like the other GA state parks have. Fire wood is $6.00 a bundle that is the most we have paid at any GA state park so far. - thejones357

As other have said very steep and winding road up from Chatsworth. Campground was very well maintained. Sites level, gravel well packed. Campground hosts excellent!! While we were there, each day had severe thunderstorms, every time there was a warning or watch issued the campground hosts walked around the campground and told everyone. Park cable system took several hits from the storms, went down and stayed down for the rest of our stay. Over-the-air reception was excellent. Cell and internet service was non-existent. If you are camping without a toad, stock up, there are no stores near the park. Everything is "down the mountain", about 8 miles of winding steep roads. Grey water dumps well placed throughout the campgrounds, but with the amount of rain they have been having ground is saturated and dumps drain s-l-o-w-l-y. Both campgrounds near beach and boat rental areas. All in all a great state park. - Retired Medic

We really loved this campground. It's right on the Toccoa River. Grounds were clean. We did full hookup. Great hot water. Beautiful river front you can go down and fish on or swing in their porch swing and look at the river. The land across the street is beautiful with lots of deer. Gina was super nice at the office. Very down home & welcoming. Park was quiet, however we did go in the tubing off season. Our lot 5C backed up to the little stream which seemed to be the local (campers) fishing honey hole. Hubby caught a really nice rainbow trout right behind our camper. We would absolutely come back & would recommend this park to anyone. - cellgirl99

Though this is a small campground and not all sites have sewer hook ups, it was a delightful place and an excellent spot to relax and unwind. Situated right on the Toccoa River, they are primarily known as a tubing company, but if you are lucky enough to be here in the off season or during the week, you will be really happy you stayed here. The owners are extremely pleasant and eager to please. There is a nice pavilion to hold picnics or other gatherings, a kayak/canoe/tube launch, and changing rooms as well as bathrooms and shower rooms. Sites are gravel and very level. They each include a grill, picnic table and fire ring. We enjoyed a campfire each evening right on the river. Bathrooms and showers are a little primitive, but the location is well worth any inconvenience. We hope to be back soon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it. We were camping in a travel trailer, but the tent area looked nice as well. We did not have a full hookup but it was worth it to be right on the river. - Cathy S

We just found this campground this weekend. It is a very small park with only 10 RV sites and 14 tent sites. The park offers tubing and raft rides down the Toccoa river and has very friendly staff. It is family owned and operated, and just needs a little work on a few things. Bath houses were clean and well maintained. Their primary business is tubing and rafting but is a great little park for this. This park is not big rig friendly, but is a great place for smaller campers. We will return. - Bird-Freak
