57 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 stayed in a seasonal site (208) and it was a nice and level. Gravel was a problem due to being in a wheel chair, but we made the best of it. Very well maintained campground. We enjoyed the WiFi and cable TV as well as full hookup. - Jimmy204

We just got back today from a weekend at Bald Mountain Camping Resort. This was probably our favorite resort thus far for a few reasons. The mountain views are great. Level lots, cable hookups (at least at our site 46), free wifi with a password they provide, good cell service (we have Verizon and always had 2 bars and the speed was great). Our site backed up to a creek. Was dry just because we've had a really hot summer. The camping store is really nice. Anything you can think you may have forgotten to get they'll have. We arrived late and they have a box in front at the office where they place your paperwork with your name, so you can just grab it, park and go the next morning to check-in. - cellgirl99

The park is beautifully manicured; attention to detail is evident throughout.
Sites are level and roomy. Modern pedestals. Conveniently located. Two sewer caps per site. Staff was helpful and friendly. - GaHoosier

Awesome campground. Nestled in a bowl surrounded by mountains. You don't see the mountains till the leaves start to fall. Its quiet and our type of camping. A nice sized back in lot (we are 40 ft) . A fishing catch and release pond. The fall leaves are beautiful and we have enjoyed the view. We definitely would return. Rt 288 is a good 2 lane road. When you turn onto Burch Rd its one lane and also when you turn onto Jarrard Rd. Uneven road entering the campground. Just go slow. We didn't have a problem. - M.Register

We loved this place in GA mountains. Superb customer service, owners were very helpful, gave us local stuff to do based on our interests. Helped us into our site. Just know that park accepts big rigs does not mean big rig friendly. They have a couple big rig sites, but super tight. Also, sites are very close, 8-10 ft between. Again loved the customer service, just not a good spot for larger RVS. Location amazing! - Mary Scott

My wife and I were traveling around North Georgia mountains trying out our Passport America membership and found this secluded park that we will certainly return to. Just follow the Google map from your smart phone to get here.
Not far outside Hiawassee, it offers a quiet place nestled in the ridge of surrounding mountains and plenty of shady sites to choose from. The owners were very nice and helpful. We gladly give them our best review. - Bill Strandberg

1st time RVER. Took a 7 hour trip from Mississippi to Riverbend on our 1st real RV trip. We said this would make us or break us. I'm proud to say we loved it, and Riverbend was part of helping us have a great time. Very quiet park and very scenic. We traveled in October and the area this park is in is perfect. Highly recommended and we will be back in the future. - Btjinx

The park was very clean and well kept. The sites were spacious, gravel and level. The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to help in any way they could. There was a small creek adjacent to the park and a walking trail next to the creek. - Deborah Neal

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

Watch out for electrical surges and don't expect any help from staff. Poorly managed and very rude. Campsites disorganized. RV sites in disrepair. Certainly not a bargain or enjoyable. - V11

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

We stayed here before, in the fall of 2015. Camp sites are very close to each other. If you have a long RV or travel trailer might want to find a different camp ground. Ours is 29' and barely had enough room to fit. Tow vehicle didn't fit. Campground was completely packed: Rv'ers as well as Tent'ers. Quiet time starts at 10pm. but lasted well through till about 2am. Nice if your just passing through, but not an extended stay campground in my honest opinion. - familygor1g

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

The park is clean, has beautiful Lake Burton to enjoy, and is convenient to hiking and fishing. The camp host and rangers were very nice. The sites are carefully maintained and very clean. - Manatina

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 was our first visit here. We were met by the owners who checked us in and escorted us to our site. The back-in site (there's no pull-thrus) was a little tight but owner directed me as I backed in our 37' fifth wheel. We have a nice shady and quiet site but I think some sites closer to the road may experience some traffic noise.
Site has 50 amp electric, water, sewer, and about 100 cable channels. The site wasn't long enough to accommodate our truck but owner said we could use the vacant site next to us. The park has a good number of park models (mostly occupied by Floridians escaping summer heat) as well as a number of spots for folks just spending a few nights.
I recommend this park and will likely visit again when in the area. The park accepts Passport America for two nights only at half of the $32 rate. - halfdimes

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
