Would have given a 10 if had sewers. Beautiful and well kept with very spacious sites with great views of the lake. Some back in sites had fairly long driveways backing to level concrete pads. All roads are blacktop and trees throughout the park are trimmed well but a few turns are a bit tight and need to be watched. - PappaDee

One of best maintained campgrounds we camp at; run by volunteers. Volunteers are very friendly and helpful. Only park on Lake Lanier with concrete swimming area- no red mud. Most of campsites are very good. Bathrooms are cleaned twice daily. Lot spacing is spacious with some shade. Site surface is a concrete pad, featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - Buckskin

Beautiful park, as has been our experience with all COE parks. Large, paved sites with water and electric. Some shade. Several sites are on the water. Friendly staff. We had great cell phone coverage (AT&T) while here. Clean, well maintained park. - harvmoon

Second visit to park, ranger and hosts are extremely accommodating. Park is only 3 years old and most of the trees are young, however being close to Cleveland at an elevation of 1100.00ft. Makes for comfortable mornings and evenings. - AU Fishing

Nice new state park. As stated in other reviews it will take awhile for the trees and vegetation to grow and fill in between the sites. That said there are some nice sites that face the lake and forest that give more privacy than others. You get to choose your site when you get there as you drive through the campground. All sites are paved. There are camp hosts that help keep all the facilities clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Great beach, playground, kayak and paddle board rental, fishing and hiking to keep you busy. - 21fbrs

This a new park and it will take time for the trees to grow in. Please keep in mind that even though this is a state park the park does sit on a COE lake.
The rangers and staff were pleasant, scenery was outstanding, the upper Chattahoochee had a good flow making the kayak fishing enjoyable. Plenty of things to do and see from, Cleveland, Helen, Gainesville, and Dawsonville. Would definitely stay here again. - AU Fishing

We stayed here for a coupe nights on a whim, and then came back the following week for another 5 nights. As others have said, the park is greatly underused, and I don't know why! It's BEAUTIFUL, quiet and very well laid out. I will warn that some of the sites are REALLY steep to get in and out of....may want to call ahead and check yours.
There's a lot of traffic on the lake on the weekends, but that makes for nice wave crashing sounds on the shoreline. So very relaxing!
The one thing that they could improve is the bathrooms. They're pretty outdated and don't have any paper towels or hand driers which is odd.
There are plenty of restaurants, stores etc....nearby. And even a movie theater if you have a rainy day. TV signal was in and out but cell service was strong (T-mobile and AT&T).
There's a GREAT laundromat in Gainesville called "Wash yer duds" and we highly recommend that if you need laundry facilities outside the ONE washer and drier onsite.
All in all, this is now one of our favorite parks and we can't wait to go back! It's too bad they close in September.... The fall colors are probably SPECTACULAR there! - doggpurr

This is a favorite! Sites are spread out and clean. Almost everyone has a view of the lake. Aside from boat engine noise, you get plenty of peace and quiet. Sites are level but a few have pretty steep entrance/exits. We stayed at site #43 which is a beautiful site but our travel trailer bumper scraped when exiting. We also stayed in site 43 which gives you a beautiful lake view if you have a large rear window. Both had a short trail to the lake to do some fishing from the bank. - budm108

This campground is becoming our favorite. We had site 48 and even though it says it is only 30', it is much longer and accommodated our 39' fifth wheel with no problem. Sites are very large and shaded. We have had a nice breeze every time we have been so it must be something about the it's location. This park is greatly underused so it must just be a well kept secret. Love this place. Bathhouses are kind of far apart and only used one once and are fairly old but OK. - campingnut18

Needed a place, convenient to Gainesville, to help out our aging parents for the weekend. It was a very cold weekend. The attendant was very helpful and let us pick our site from those available. As it is an older park, not all sites are easy to get a 40' diesel pusher in and out. I chose site 36 as it was almost a pull-thru. That site only had 30 amp service but we didn't need a lot of amperage. Ran the furnaces, microwave and TV without problem. Some sites do have 50 amps. Beautiful park with hardwood lined hills on Lake Lanier. RV's must pass through two, coded security gates so we felt very safe. We would certainly camp here again. - coastaltom

We love this campground. There is a security gate front entrance, plus another security code gate to the camping area for travel trailers and motorhomes. The sites were very clean. Trash cans are provided close to each site and they are checked emptied daily. The bath facilities are kept clean. The security truck rides by frequently. Not all sites have a fire pit, but we had one this time. The water level was up, so we were able go fishing at our site. We enjoyed it and appreciate the work that goes into maintaining and securing the grounds. We had a very relaxing visit. - gacamper50
