8 Parks near Fortson, Georgia
Apr 2013 - $20.00
We love this park. The park is in Central time and the office is on Eastern time, so have to pay attention when the gate is locked. We stayed by the lake but there are other sites that are good too. There's fishing and water activities and a small playground for the kids. It's well worth the trip to stay. Be sure you have groceries--it's a few miles to get to nearest food source. - jimdee

This park is within 30 minutes from our home, and this was our first camping trip there. We came in on Thursday afternoon and there were only 6 other campers there. Our site was a fairly isolated, very shady spot. We did not stay directly on the water, but had a great view all the same. This campground is great if you are not looking for lots to do. Fishing and boating are the main attractions here. There was a small playground though the woods but otherwise, nothing else for kids to do. The hosts were very nice and helpful. We attend church nearby, and were not sure if we would make the 1:00 checkout time. We checked with the camp hosts on Sunday morning and found that our site was not reserved for that day, so we were allowed to take our time leaving. Also, we visited the campground ahead of time and rode through to find the sites we liked before making reservations. One other thing to note is that they are not set up to take credit cards, but will take personal checks as well as cash. Even though we left past the checkout time, we sat in line at the dump station for at least 30 minutes. We enjoyed our trip, and would come again for a quick weekend. - kjh

This is a great park for relaxation. We have stayed here twice, a week in August 2004 and 2 weeks in July 2005, while my wife worked in nearby Columbus. The sites are mostly level. There are only a couple of pull-thrus. Some of the sites are a challenge to back into, especially if located on a hill. The sites on the water are fabulous with great views. You can fish right from your site. There is a boat ramp and then you can tie your boat up at your site. The sites away from the water are also nice. All sites are large, with tables and fire rings. All are shady. You are allowed to drain grey-water at most sites. A dump station is available. Most of the waterfront sites are taken on the weekends, but during the week there is often only 1-2 campers. The tent area is located on a point jutting out into the lake. These 8 campsites share a common parking area. Each has electricity, but water is at a central location. These sites are very popular. The restrooms are modern and clean. There are laundry facilities available. The hosts are very friendly. Boating and fishing are the most common activities besides relaxing. A lot of families camp here. The only playground is in a nearby day-use area. There's not much at the camp "store" besides ice. Nearest country store is about 2 miles, but most campers go to one farther away. This is a great place to spend a relaxing few days. The scenery is great, the sites are comfortable and the price is right. - StanZ

Stayed two nights using Passport America. Clean, well laid out park with nice pool, laundry room and hiking trail. Arrived around 1:00pm and the office was closed with packet on porch. I never once saw any camp personnel during the two days I was there. The office never opened, no one drove by, nothing. I logged onto their "WiFi" network when I first arrived but was never connected to the internet. So, WiFi? Yes "Internet" NO! If passing through, I would stay here again but only for a night or two. Most of the sites are taken by long term folks several who I saw walking their pets and not cleaning up after them. - JimChan52

They say they are a Passport America park but they were not giving the PPA discount when we were there because they expected to be nearly full. So you have to take your chances.
They say they have wifi but we could not get on the entire time we were here. (We left after 2 days because of no Passport America discount and no usable wifi.)
The lady in the office (Debbie) was wonderful! Very capable and nice. Site 5 was not level, but nice and open for satellite TV. Sites are gravel. Park is quiet. All utilities worked very well. It just seemed expensive for what we got. - SusanRon

We stayed at Lake Pines as an overnight on our way thru the Columbus area. I called the day before arrival, and spoke to a very polite female staff member who understood our needs well. We have small children, and because it was just an over night trip, wouldn't be unhooking from our tow vehicle. She did well to match us up with one of the few remaining sites based on those needs. We arrived after the office had closed for the day, but an envelope with our name was on the office door. The envelope had a park map with the best way into the site drawn. All sites are gravel, fairly off level, and our's did not have a picnic table. The full hook ups were adequate. However on our site, #56 the hookups were at the back of the TT, and a post which made it impossible to get closer. This required us to stretch our water, and sewer hoses as far as they would stretch. Another foot or two, and the hook ups would have been worthless. As mentioned, we were put in a site that met our needs to leave 57 feet worth of TT and TV hooked up. You could have parked another vehicle in front and still been out of the road. We were also a short walk from a well kept, clean swimming pool and playground. As mentioned in other reviews, there are a couple of down sides to this park. You are right beside a railroad track, and if not awakened by a horn blast, you certainly will feel your RV shudder from the nearby train. Secondly, also as mentioned in other reviews, the bathhouse is dated, and even though management keeps it clean, its dinginess makes it less than desirable to do your business. Lastly, also mentioned in other reviews, there seem to be a lot of long term/full timers in the park in older run down rigs. This unfortunately gives the park a feel of being a trailer park rather than an RV park. Overall Lake Pines is good for an over night or two, but I couldn't imagine anything longer. - Scargile

I have stayed her six consecutive years during October. Staff are outstanding and know your name. Extremely clean. Great campground to visit if you want to relax. Love watching the deer roaming throughout the park.
outstanding Wi-Fi and cable connections. Best RV park I have been too and I have traveled through 41 states. Cant remember the cost, therefore I stated 1.00. - Mbv-20145

We stayed here two years running for my military reunions. What a great park! Plenty of shade OR open sites depending on which you want. Full hookups with 50 amp service. Very quiet campground with nice centrally located pool and pavilion. There is a full-service marina on the grounds with boat rentals as the campground is right on the river. Paratrooper drop zone just a mile or 2 away on the same road. Love watching them jump. Office staff was very helpful, but the cable boxes are a pain to hook up. Didn't know I needed one until it was too late in the day to get one. Lots of room for portable satellite dishes and love sitting outside with deer walking all around us. Very relaxing and very secure as gate locks at night with coded entry. All roads are well maintained and mostly level. Just can't say enough good about this CG. Will return next year. - Blackhat6mike

We were able to stay here for my Grandson's graduation from OSUT. The campground is about 30 minutes from Ft Benning events. We stayed in a oversized pull-through site designed as a loop off the main road in National Park fashion. The cable was great. Wi-Fi was a little spotty. My cell reception with AT&T was nonexistent. I had to drive a few miles to make a phone call. Sites had a lot of green space between them and there were deer roaming through them every evening. I paid $11/night with my America the Beautiful pass. If you are in the area and are eligible to stay here I highly recommend it. - 4 Dog Night

Gravel sites with red clay on top. Hookups worked great. Very friendly owner who escorted us to our site. Checks or cash only no discounts. No Wifi or cable but was able to get satellite. Only stopped for overnight not sure if we would stop again. - roaming around

Where is the Lake? One unisex bathroom/shower - that's it. Next to noisy Rt. 280. No swimming pool. Not a Good Sam Park anymore. Should be priced in the $20-25 range. No site/facilities map. No Wi-Fi. No cable - told we would get a few air channel stations (no CBS or PBS). No credit cards. - Livermorered

Narrow gravel entrance roads. Gravel sites with full hookups. Nice shade trees. No cable. Very marginal Wi-Fi. Good 50 amp. Very friendly host with site escort. Rate is high for what you get. OK for an overnight stay if you need to get off the road. The park seems to be full of long term residents and needs some work. I had to pull grass out of the water valve box in the ground to get my fresh water hose hooked up. - Pjoe

Lots of rotted timbers in sites and some sharp metal that could potentially damage tires. - epperson1

One night stay in transit to Florida. Based on previous reviews, requested a 40' site so we could stay in Loop 500, which was a good decision. Site was spacious, private, shady and had electric and water. On a Monday, only 3 others campers in the loop including the host who we never saw: LOL. Understand it started to thunderstorm 30 minutes after arriving. Speaking of which, be careful which site you choose as flooding seemed to be an issue on some sites. Pleasant and adequate overnight stay although would have liked to seen a ranger or host make security rounds. Giving them the benefit of the doubt because of weather. Route 190/354 and going thru the "Back Gate" was a better drive in/out of the CG than going up Lake Delanor Rd across from the Visitors Center. - Breezy2

We stayed at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in late April/early May for a total of 15 nights (one extra night approved by manager). We love state parks for the feel of being in the woods instead of a parking lot and this campground had plenty of that! There were several loops to camp in, some with lake views, but we chose loop 500 for the large private sites. We had a nice pull-through site with a ton of space between our neighbors on both sides. Neighbors across the street were staggered, so there was no one directly across the street from us. We loved hearing the huge variety of songbirds in this park! They serenaded us all day and night. We saw a really strange squirrel-like creature that we asked about and were told it was a fox squirrel. Had never seen one before and only saw the one on that day and never saw another. We never saw deer or other wildlife (beside squirrels and birds), but it was very quiet and peaceful. There was an older bath house on our loop and there are trails to it from every campsite. The camp hosts kept the bathhouses very clean, but one shower stall backed up and seemed in danger of flowing over the one time I used that stall (there were only two in the ladies'). Mentioned to the camp hosts that said they had told maintenance about it. We were lucky to be camping there before peak season and the campground was basically empty except for the weekends. This is a beautiful park, with lots and lots of hiking trails, some right from the campground. Callaway Gardens is next door and has miles of bike trails, which we took advantage of three different times (there is an entrance fee, but if you go more than once, an annual pass is a better deal). The gray water dump stations spaced conveniently around each loop saved us from towing our blue boy over to the dump station at least twice during our stay. All in all, a great place to spend a day, a week or longer! - LZee11

Nice park, older shaded area has washed out gravel roads. Some sites concrete pad, table. Cable was not working. Some sites gravel. New area concrete pads no shade. Pool and facilities good. Overpriced at $52 but otherwise nice place. - Schoemer

Park was fairly empty when we were here but it was during the week. Staff was very helpful with what to do and what to see. Pool area was very nice that included a kiddie pool and spa. Not many trees in the part of the park where the pool is, so should be good for satellite. A few sites at the edge of the back area had a great view of a lake that was off the property. We traveled with our 3 grandkids and would stay again. - jimnina

Agree with other comments. WIfi was fast and strong, but the park was empty. Antenna connection was MUCH better than cable. - Homecrew

We stayed here in our 31' Class C RV. We were on our way to North Carolina and were very disappointed in the choices of parks along I-85 going into Atlanta. (Actually if you want a chuckle from some creatively written reviews, check those out. (Look for the parks along I-85 West out of Atlanta.)
In any case, we stopped here because we didn't want to go into Atlanta to find a decent place to stay. WOW - it was incredible!!! It was our first COE (Corps of Engineers park) and we are now hooked.
The spaces were widely spread apart and you felt like you practically had the entire place to yourself. We stayed in space #29 and it was superb. It had an elevated view of the calm and lovely lake with a path going down to a tiny beach on the water. It would be great for a dog that wanted to swim in the water.
The site was heavily shaded and flat. There were a fire pit, grill, full size picnic table, and lamp pole. The people working at the entrance were so friendly. They were working on a 4-5 month contract, 4 days on, 4 days off, and had their camper on site.
The bathroom was right across the road. It was old but very clean. The only reason I'm giving this park a 9 and not a full 10 is that there was no shower in the bathroom. There were showers closer to the entrance, but were too far to easily walk to.
What started out as just a convenient stop along the way, is now a future vacation destination for our family.
FYI, on the way out, talked to the hosts. They said there were some sites with even better views. Can't remember the numbers, but they must be incredibly awesome because our site (#29) was amazing. - GearDown

Another great COE park, very easy to get to off Interstate 85. Big rigs should have no issues, might be a few sites that would be slightly difficult to get in but not many. Roads are big rig friendly, most sites are paved, sites in the first loop are all gravel but nice. Our Verizon was not the greatest in the first loop, our neighbors ATT was fine, our Verizon seemed to be fine in the other loops. Dish will for the most part be OK if yours is portable, over air TV is limited, about 10 channels. Water and 50 AMP at all sites, water pressure was great, showers are very limited. Very nice lake, great boating, beach is a short drive. Our price reflects senior discount. We would camp here again. - rmckee

Rate is for $12 for one night with Golden Age Passport. But recreation.gov website requires 2 nights for a reservation, so effective discounted rate for a one-night transit stop was $24. Annoying, but still a very good buy compared to many of the alternatives.
Interior roads were wide and well maintained as were the sites that we observed. Our site (#50) as easy to negotiate drive-thru with 50-amp and water service, both easy to access. AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE service ran about 5 mhz down/.1 mhz up. Sent several texts with pictures attached with no problem. Service stations and shops in West Point, about 5 miles from this quiet campground. - KodiakHouse
