6 Parks near Hiawassee, Georgia

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

This is a beautiful resort, a little to far out of town for us but very we'll maintained. Our only complaint, no help at check in. This resort is huge, can't possible see location for any of the sites, we were told, go ahead, walk. They need a golf cart and maybe even someone willing to show you around. It is a nice place, all site are level, some have trees. A seasonal camper we happened to meet showed us around on his personal cart. Nice residents anyway! - Gerry9

This campground is large with very nice facilities in a beautiful area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. To us the sites were just way too close to each other. We had a site right next to the stream which was great. Our neighbors were watching TV and we were so close that we could hear every sound. After they finally went to sleep we got our expected mountain rest in the cool fresh air and the sounds of the stream coming in through our open windows. Unfortunately at around 6AM we woke up by the smell of mountain unfiltered cigarette smoke instead from the other neighbor. We left as soon as we could and will not return to this beautiful place. Great location and friendly people, just not the place for us. We tend to prefer state parks with more privacy between sites. - airstreamerSC

Besides agreeing with all of those who posted a 10 for this campground I would like to add that they give you support and help whenever needed. If our Wi-Fi didn't work properly it was fixed within a day. The same goes for the cable. They are very service orientated in this campground and are concerned about their guests' satisfaction. I stop here at least once a year for several months. - Dog Lady

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

After the previous park we inhabited in the area, we were overjoyed to be here. This is a lovely and spacious park, run by a non-profit, with a huge organic farm. The Appalachian Trail is in close proximity, and nearly every site has a stream in the back, as well as decks and picnic tables for your eating pleasure. They are pet and family friendly although when we were there it was August and it was on the quiet side. There is a huge lodge where you can get breakfast if you wish, but only at certain times. Yes, they charge for firewood and a permit, but it is a place where they try to keep things as pristine as possible. We had great walks to a 200 foot waterfall and Loved this place. It was serene and relaxing and just wonderful. We look very forward to returning one day soon. - H42 Sailing

We were in area #1, on the other side of the highway, water & electric only area. Obviously an old campground, before slideouts and big trailers. Bring plenty of leveling boards. They will likely be needed. Watched a neighbour struggle for a half hour trying to get a small trailer level using those leveling bricks. Access roads are very narrow. Parking sites are very narrow. It has been many years since they were serviced at all. The dump station is on a slope making proper drainage impossible. On the plus side the Wi-Fi worked well, most sites are well separated, and compared to surrounding CGs a good value for money. - Veebyes

Good campground and the staff is friendly. Loop A is the best for separation of campsites, however no fires are allowed in this loop. Restrooms are clean and maintained. Did not understand the boat ramp, they need a floating platform to tie up to when launching. Excellent walking around the roads, keep I'm mind these roads have hills. Hiawassee is a fun place to visit and you will not find a lot of brand restaurants, mostly local flavor. We stayed four days and will mark this campground for a return visit. The campground is run by the county and is better maintained than most Georgia State Parks. - AU Fishing

I was very pleased with our return visit to the Georgia Mountain Fair Campgrounds. We had previously stayed in Area 1 on the south side of highway 76, however this time we stayed in area 2 which was more accommodating to travel trailers. We stayed on a nice campsite on the hillside overlooking the lake. Most campsites have a great view or limited view of the lake. We were in the A section of area 2, which is hilly, but more space between campsites. Sections B,C,D,E and F are more level, but are closer together. The WiFi and cable both were great! Even with the Georgia Mountain Fair going on the campground still seemed calm and safe. - RandyP

We have stayed in and seen many RV parks in the past year (ever since we started full-timing) and the Long Ridge Campground is one of the nicest parks. Their lots are spacious, with picnic tables and fire pits. Views are great from almost any spot. Being small, the park provides much needed peace and tranquility ( if that's what you're looking for). Yet, it's really close to everything you ever want to do in this area. Literally, 4 miles to the public beach, Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds and downtown Hiawassee, 1.5 miles to a public lake access and boat ramp. Famous tourist destination - Helen - is about 20 miles away.
There is a free WiFi available.
The campground is tucked in, so don't worry if your GPS takes you in what looks like a residential area, just follow the road to the big campground sign.
Note: I posted the daily ongoing rate, but we actually are staying here long term (over 3 month) so it comes out to something like $10 a day - can't beat that!
Highly recommended! - WhiteX3

I found this campground because of Passport America. Like someone else mentions here, "don't worry if you think you're in a residential neighborhood " when driving here. It does ver off in a secluded canyon. A beautiful campground with excellent utilities and free wifi. I only stayed here two nights, but I wish I could have stayed a week or longer. The host and owner of the campground was very nice. Campsites were a little difficult to pull into and I did have to level my rig. - RetiredVagabond

This is a campground in progress. The owners are relatively new and are working hard to make this an excellent stay. The site was fairly level and partly shaded. The Passport America discount made this an exceptional value. Getting into the campground was a bit tricky being at the end of a narrow (but paved) road. Almost thought we were lost. No cable and we couldn't get satellite due to the surrounding hills. The area itself is quite scenic. Would return if the opportunity arose. - User3777

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

Probably one of the best campgrounds I've seen. Good spacing, long sites, good wifi, good cable, friendly staff, very quiet and beautifully landscaped. Well located to explore area. - tbax46

This may have been our favorite campground ---- ever! Owner and staff were so friendly and helpful. Spots were level, gravel and great hookups. We were in a new section and the very end spot so the wifi wasn't too good but that was alright; didn't have to keep up with work email. Cable was great. This is definitely a family campground and people with children will surely love it. Seniors might be bothered by all their bikes and cheerful sounds but just ask for a spot away from play area. We can't wait for the chance to go back. - want2go
