3 Parks near Helen, Georgia
Dec 2015 - $40.00
This is a small (17 sites) RV Resort with cabins. Owners are very nice, friendly and extremely helpful. You are guided to your site and helped with back-in. There is one way in and out so you have no traffic except your RV neighbors. All roads are paved and individual pads are concrete and very level. We had no trouble leveling our motorhome. Cable and WiFi are available and were good, although signal was sometimes weak. This park is out of the business of Helen, but close enough to many of the area attractions. All hookups worked great, We were very happy with our stay at Creekwood and would return again. - lee72

Arrived about 5 PM the day after Easter and was promptly met by one of the owners (owners are husband & wife). Another rig had arrived minutes before us, so the owners were busy getting them into their site. DW does most of the driving and today was no different. She liked how she was guided into the site and wants me to do it the same way from now on. As they were always working on some project, it is obvious the owners take pride in their ownership of this park. And, I think, they expect guests to reciprocate through their actions and attitudes. They are upfront about being a cash or check only park and with ATMs available in almost every store, I can't see where their preference of payment causes a problem.
We were going to spend a week, but DW, our two very young grandchildren, and me were all sick with hacking coughs and runny noses. One night I coughed so hard I fainted twice, the 2nd time scraping my arm on the table as I went down. This prompted us to head back home early. I found it very gracious that without ever being asked, owner refunded me the one night's tariff DW and I thought we would have to forfeit. If we are ever in this area again, we will stay here! - Joe-n-Doe

Very, very nice campground. Great location to visit northern Georgia and even close enough to go to Atlanta on a side trip. The roads are paved. The owner helped my husband back the RV into our spot. He said that her directions were great and he had no trouble getting the RV in its location. It was so peaceful here. We would definitely stay here again. We stayed here for 2 weeks so the rate averaged out to $39 per night. - drcpa

This is a Coast-to-Coast resort/campground. We stayed a few days at $10 a night. Overall it is a nice campground but really in the mountains so you have to walk up hill both ways. Some are very steep and when you check in they give you a map that is not that accurate but usable. At most campgrounds this size they escort you to your site; not here, you are on your own. There are activities, bingo, church meetings, etc. You see very few kids, but you see a lot of gray heads all over and they stick to the rules at the campground. We were there of the OctoberFest at Helen, which is nice but once is all that it takes to see everything there. If we are in the area again then we would stay again. - dewwed

My family and I have been members of this park for nearly 5 years now. I understand that some of the members have been members since the park opened in 1983, however, my biggest beef with the park is that there are some very intolerable long time members that are down right rude or mean to young children. I find it necessary to write this because I can only hope that maybe one of them would read this and realize that the individuals they are being rude and nasty to are the generation that will carry this park on not to mention if it wasn't for the younger generation with children coming in and buying in they would have to pay for more of the amenities that they now get for free. I can only hope that some of these Long Time members learn to either keep their negative opinions and or comments to themselves or just not say anything at all. Everything else about this park is fantastic. I can say that if you decide to become a member you need to remember that the long time members I am referring to won't be around much longer and sadly enough that is what I have to tell my children when they come across one. Overall the Campers are cordial, but as with any other place that has been around for awhile you will find at least one stick in the mud. We liked it so much that we purchased 3 memberships so that one day we can be here for months at a time like the other long time members. The price that you pay for your membership by no means covers all the wonderful benefits you can receive from it. I am blowing off steam because like I said I can only hope that just one of those long time members reads this and thinks about how they conduct themselves in front of children and would they have tolerated it when their children were younger. - kat30565

We stayed in off-season. Pools closed Oct. 31. Great lodge. WiFi available in lodge. All sites and roads are paved; sites are level. Nearby Unicoi State Park access is great. Community fire rings with firewood furnished. We stayed on Coast to Coast and had a $2 per night mandatory cable fee. We were given a full hookup site on the pond. Will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend this park. - 2Scampers

Once again, GA State Parks do not disappoint. We decided to head to Helen for the Christmas Festival and we enjoyed beautiful weekend with the family in the mountains of North GA.
We arrived Friday evening, easy check-in we reserved a "full hook-up"
site but our sewer line was too short.
After spending a few hours in Helen on Saturday, we had lunch at the Tavern/Sports Bar at Unicoi the club sandwich was fantastic.
Fall/Winter camping is great but this location would be excellent in summer also. We had a stream running behind our site. - mecicon

Nice park and very convenient to downtown Helen. Service was very good although no wifi or tv signal. The buffet at the lodge is very good when it's open. - Palomino Highwall

We arrived on Memorial Day Weekend, the campground was full. There were mostly tents and very few rvs. The campsites are nice size and level. We had a buddy campsite in Laurel Ridge (#34) big enough for an RV and a tent. There was no bath house on our level and area. We had to descend about 2 stories of steps to get to the nearest bath house and wait to shower because there were only 2 shower stalls for lots of campers. The bath house was usually very messy. Saw a bear trying to get into the garbage cans by our campsite. After Memorial Day the campground cleared out quickly. The trails that we went on were beautiful and well kept. The scenery is very nice. We fished out of kayacks and the kids even caught some small brim. There is a small stream that runs close to the playground and the kids loved playing in the cool water. The beach and swimming area leaves something to be desired. We ate dinner at the lodge restaurant and the buffet was overpriced ($18) and not very good, the whole catfish was not fully cooked. There was no wifi signal that we could find. We camped here for 5 nights. We would camp here again. - tealcat
