55 Parks near Hiawassee, Georgia
Apr 2016 - $35.00
Other than a few pull thrus, this is a backin type park, but each backs up to a small creek, but all are also across from a sometimes very busy and loud road, especially motorcycles and sportcars at certain times of the year.
Most sites are 30a with a very few 50a, as the park is only for 15 or so sites.
The park though is somewhat centrally located between Helen and Hiawassee, both worth visiting. The mountains passes between the two, though, can be fun to some, and terrifying to others. The road is fairly tight with many twists and hard mountain side turns. Fun. - hturnerfamily

Quiet, small no frills park in a good location, halfway between Helen and Hiawassee, on the Hiawassee river headwaters. Clean restrooms.
Also has 3 cabins for rental. - Cat Woods

our small club of 5 families spent a week here and had a great time. We all had sites along the creek with part shade. Only negatives: public road that runs thru the middle of the campground to individual lots behind the campground. Traffic on this road can go too fast. The trash drop off is way out of the way. A central location or site pickup would be nice. - MODguy

We had a great stay. Met lot of new friends. Lots of things to do. Campground is beautiful and very well run and super clean. I found the owner and staff easy to work with. If you had a problem with your campsite or with another camper you go to them and they will take care of it. It is easy to get to other attractions in the surrounding areas from here. We would certainly stay here again. - Sharon Pope

This is a great family park with plenty of activities for children and adults. We took our 2 grandchildren, 2 & 5, and they enjoyed playing in the playground, they have a pool, putt putt golf which is free, basketball court and there is fishing and a nice game room. The sites are level and pretty close together. We will be going back in the spring to camp here again. Staff was very nice and helpful. - thejones357

(* We paid for 12 months as we are now permanently living here in our fifth-wheel). Long Ridge Campground is relatively small when compared to several other campgrounds nearby, but no one can beat the exceptional customer service the owners provide! The sites are covered with gravel, & clean. There are a dozen or so tent sites, 30 amp sites for smaller RVs & sites large enough to handle any big rig easily. These latter sites are full-service: WiFi, 50 amp, water & sewer included. The campground is secluded with a small catch & release pond & a stream that provides a soothing sound throughout the day & night. The office sells ice & a small amount of other "must have" RV items. There is a seasonal (closed Nov-Mar) RV service & parts store a few miles away. They do on-site service as well. I strongly recommend you call ahead for a reservation as the campground fills up very quickly, especially during the spring, summer & early fall when there are numerous festivals in the area. Come one, come all to Long Ridge Campground! - Jess Jessup

When you finally find this 'hidden' gem, you'll be glad you did. The route into the campground is a little tight and unnerving in your rv if you're never been to it, especially the tight rural road that's partly a single lane, but, it's worth it.
There are several backin 'rv park' style gravel sites up front, and many 'campground' style backin sites under the trees, near the woods, and around the pond. All seem to be well designed and roomy.
Plan to stay here a while, it's away from traffic, near nature, with a pond and large stream near everyone. - hturnerfamily

First time out for real. So very new campers here. The turn in needs better signage. Almost missed it.
The check in was very smooth, the owner was not in but she contacted a long-termer who came and helped us back into a site.
Site 15 was fairly level, and luckily easy to get into. Other back-in sites required more leveling and as newbie campers would have been hard to navigate into. No cable, but not an issue as Aggies had an off week. :-)
The campground was very well maintained, and pretty quiet. The main thing that would have led to a higher rating for us would have been more than one toilet stall in the main bathhouse.
It was a very nice location for us as we visited Helen, Brasstown Bald and Blue Ridge.
We would camp here again. - MissAlaineous

This large mountain campground is off the highway so it is quiet. Weekly rate is $215. The sites and roads are gravel and all sites appear to be pretty level. We camped in new section by the river (H3). 62 channels on the cable TV hookup and the park WiFi seems to be better than most. Office personnel very friendly. Be sure to follow website instructions for arrival. Plenty of nearby places to explore. Sites are large enough for the biggest RVs plus toads and there's adequate space between sites. There's a mix of shaded and open sites. - smdrm

Very nice CG with beautiful views surrounding it. We stayed on the end in the new section (H13) backing up to the river with a huge field on one side and a mountain view out the front of the RV. Check in was friendly and easy, and the CG is very clean. FHU, back-in site was gravel and easily leveled. Cable TV had plenty of channels. There is WiFi, but the new section doesn't have the repeaters yet, so you have to go to the older section to use their WiFi. We had our own. Plenty of room to walk the dog along the river and in the field as well as thru the CG. Good Verizon cell coverage. We would definitely stay here again. - Gayle E.

This is a lovely park in a valley surrounded by the North Georgia Mountains. It can accommodate all types of RV's including large coaches. The only down side is that all sites are gravel. We had a pull through site that was new and with recent rains, the site was soft, Even with pads, our leveling jacks sunk in. However, that is the only negative. The Hiawassee River passes along side the park and is a lovely trout stream. The park has a couple of meeting facilities including one with a kitchen. We would come back and stay again. - User3770

Every previous review, both the good and the bad, are completely accurate. I think part of the problem is that this non-profit looks like its running on the edge financially - and not always able to keep the property in as good a shape as they would like.
1) The sites are packed in like sardines.
2) They nickle and dime you to death.
3) The waterfall trails are a bit dangerous, especially if wet.
4) There is NO connectivity for Cell, TV and very little WiFi.
5) Because campsites are so close - if its a busy weekend then you may have conflicts with neighbor's fires/drinking/kids.
1) It's a beautiful place!
2) There is a demonstration garden that you (and kids) can help with - and if you pull weeds, you can feed them to the rabbits. You can also pet the cows, pigs and Shetland ponies.
3) This would be a great campground for groups. They have several gathering places/lodge etc. This property used to be a youth camp and still has dining hall and other facilities.
4) The staff was exceptionally nice when we were here, although there are reviews on other review sites listing rude behavior.
5) There is absolutely NO connectivity (cell, TV or Wifi). Listed as a positive for me: wonderful to be able to tell the office, "I'm off the Grid for a few days. Handle it yourself!"
Note: I think I'd want to make sure I have a Power Management System. If this park was full on a hot day I'll bet they have voltage problems.
Bottom line - Give it a try, get one of the creekside campsites, don't have your expectations too high. - Buddy Ray

Be aware there are a few "surcharges" in addition to rates but it is all stated ahead. I listed $54 a night because there is an additional $10 added to the rate and $5 for a pet and an additional $10 a person for guest. All of this is on the Website so there is no surprise. We were there 5 nights and it rained most of the time - not the campsites fault. There is no pavement and there was a lot of mud. The water went out twice due to people running into water spigots. Interesting. This appears to be an older campground - the back in for our 40' RV was very tight. There are nice wooden decks next to the site but, when you run out the slides it takes up most of the deck. Most sites are not level. There are concrete pads to park your rig on but, they are more suited to shorter rigs without slide outs. As always we met a lot of nice people. We rated it OK but will most likely not return. - Larry Jenkins

Overall, this is a pretty park; however, they will nickel and dime you to death. The additional people/children charge is not unheard of but you have to pay $5 per night per dog (my husband asked me if that meant they were going to clean up after our dog), plus $5/day for a "burn permit." You cannot bring firewood with you, you must purchase it from them. You pay another $10 per stay for a conservation fee. They advertise WiFi; however, it only worked about 30% of the time at our site. We had no cell phone service with AT&T and neither did our friends using Sprint. The sites are very close together and the statement about leaving things natural is not a lie. Our site had a number of trees so close to the pad that we had make a choice as to whether we wanted our awning to open or access to our outdoor kitchen (we could not open both). The campground has a few waterfalls you can hike to. We chose to hike to the 200' waterfall. Warning - Do not attempt this after it has rained. The trail is dirt which as you know turns to mud after a rain. The slope is pretty steep as you get into it and very slippery when muddy. We were told there was a "swimming hole" at the falls and you spend all this time hiking up to the falls only to have to climb down an embankment if you want to visit the "swimming hole." We saw a few snakes so we decided against a dip. I found the place a little pricey for the amenities. - Campdog41

We stayed this time at the 'second' section of campsites, across the road from the main fairgrounds park. While there is no sewer for each site, the waterside/lakeside option is wonderful as you within feet of the water, and each site has access to 20/30/50 amp service, water, 60+ Cable channels, and nice Wifi that works well.
The park is a little difficult to manuver with longer vehicles, and the sites can be a little hard to back into, but it's worth the effort. Some sites are short, others are very deep. Some sites are very narrow, with drop offs to the water, while others are wide and expansive. Most of the sites have plenty of shade, for most of the day, but this could also make for difficult satellite reception, if required, unless you are on the SW facing shorelines.
This time of year there are few campers and few nearby, but I can imagine that in the summer months, and during the fairground events in the fall, that it could get noisy, with many campers a little too close for comfort. - hturnerfamily

There are two sections to this campground. The "Fair side" has full hook ups the other side across does not have sewer. We stayed on the Fair side. We have stayed here many times and enjoy our stay. This place could use some capital improvements like new pavement. It is a beautiful location and a good value. Some sites can be difficult to get into and are narrow. Most have adequate space between sites. This is a beautiful location and if this was spruced up a bit I would give it a higher score. Still the "Fair" side is a good value and we'll stay here again. The other side is not a place we could fit so we wouldn't consider it. - NPmoto

Our site was on the Fairgrounds side and had full hook-ups with cable TV. When stopping to register, turn left into the lower level next to the office. The upper road is passable with a covered entry that has a 14' clearance. The sites are fairly narrow, but mostly level with pavement. Many of the sites have broken pavement, especially on the edges. The bathrooms are dated, but clean and serviceable. Nice view of the lake from our site. Lots of trees with plenty of shade. - Good Vibes

Small family owned and family friendly campground. Grass pads and most are level. Owner is fantastic to help set-up and level everything out. Great mountain view, and right on Shooting Creek which is good for the dog and tubing! Quiet place to be and very relaxing. We're going to be here 2 months, and may stay longer cause we really like the location, campground, and owners. - User3590

Nice, smaller SP in the mtns of NE Georgia. Clean bathhouses with good hot water and pressure, nice assortment of products in the office for sale like shirts, hats, bait, general supplies. Trout fishing, nice stream and lake views. Paved roads with crush-n-run drives and all seemed to look level. No cell or internet service, would have been nice at times, but in the big picture you're not suppose to be inside anyway..... - gsc66

This was our first camping trip in our new camper. We have a lot to learn but we really enjoyed this camp ground. It was well kept and the people in the office were very helpful and friendly. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was because the spot we had we could not get the full use of our awning because of a tree. We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed camping here and the trout fishing near by. - 1newcamper

This is a nice small park. The sites are nice, but close together. This is not a park to go to if you want privacy. The restroom facilities were one of the nicest I've seen in my 20 years of camping. Also, had nice laundry facilities. The Park is on the edge of Lake Burton, which is very pretty, especially at dusk. Little bike riding opportunity within park - just one paved loop around the park. The GPS stated that the campground was on Hwy 97 coming from Clarkesville several miles before where the CG is actually located. Just something to be aware of if you use a GPS. - judeebug

A very friendly, safe RV park with everything you need to feel at home. The park is a good mix of seasonal and weekender sites, all of which are spacious and treed. The hookups are well located and include cable and free WiFi. Our hosts were super helpful, giving us lots of info on the area. We will be back to this very nice RV park. - Ab and Cindy

Beautiful campground in the North Carolina mountains. The owners are super friendly and the campground is very quiet. There was plenty of room on our site. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to others camping in the area. - harvmoon

The park is a nice mix of RV sites and park models. It has a natural setting, wooded, nicely sized spaces. It was a quiet retreat for our month. We were looking for fall colors, and we weren't disappointed. The managers/owners were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay so much that we changed our plans for the summer and will be returning to Hayesville for their 7 month season in April. - NoPlaceLikeRoam

This campground is for the use of people attending the school. It provides a convenient location just steps away from the classroom building. All the sites are back-in. Some require backing up a fair distance since the row is a dead-end. Many of the hook-ups are on the wrong side, requiring long cords or hoses. Sites are very shady and only a couple have satellite reception. No other TV reception is available. Road in is very narrow but has almost no traffic. Sites are relatively level. Wi-Fi is available in the classroom building and can be picked up at some of the sites. No laundry facilities are available. Nearest shopping is about 3 miles away. Closest major grocer is 10 miles. - glenthompson
