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

This is now a KOA campground and price reflects KOA discount for holiday weekend stay. Hopefully, they will be making some improvements to this park. There is no cable TV, the Wi-Fi is spotty and you have to obtain they password from the office (one password per device), and our site was pretty unlevel. The lake sites were definitely not built for big rigs and very difficult to maneuver with our 41' fifth wheel. Very crowded, which was to be expected on a holiday weekend; however, there did not appear to be any site limitations as far as vehicles and people go. Some sites would have four to five cars on them. The pools appeared to be clean but we did not use them. - Campdog41

We booked our stay for North Shore during the month of February 2015 for our stay in April 2015. Upon making reservations we were quoted $32 per night for a lake front site- no deposit required. The week prior to making our trip we called to double check reservations and were told they didn't offer sites for the amount we were quoted and a lakefront would be $70 per night or could take a regular site for $40. We decided to take a $40 site. Upon arrival, the park was in deplorable conditions. Pictures online are NOT true to what current conditions are. Sites were un-level, not shaded, no fire rings, no grills, and the picnic tables were all rotted. The pools looked to not have had water in them in several years, the play set was leaning and unable to play on, the mini golf hadn't been tended to in several years. The bathhouses smelled of urine with moldy curtains. Definitely NOT worth $40 or $70 per night. The sites were stacked one on top of another- just not how we like to camp. Needless to say, we wound up getting a refund and heading to another campground for our weekend. We've camped at many other resorts- this was definitely not worthy of that type of title. Wouldn't recommend this park to anyone expecting a resort, especially if you have children. There are several other parks in the area for half the price of this that are much nicer condition. - Lulubelle80

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

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
