6 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

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

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

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 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

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

Small park. Owners are very friendly and helpful, best we have ever experienced. First name basis from check in. We had full hookups but no cable or tv reception. Owners are on site. They are waiting on cable to be installed soon. Sites are well laid out. Big rig sites are terraced and kind of close.
Park has tent sites and small rig sites grouped in separate areas.
We would come back again. - epperson1

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

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

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
