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. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Everything in Hiawassee is within only several miles in either direction, enjoy the lake views, geese, wildlife, and a view you can't beat! Cooler here, too...

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. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Great scenic drives around the lake and nearby mountains. Take a trip over to the dam area. You can walk the entire top of the dam from one side to the other. The North Georgia Wine trail is a great way to spend an afternoon with three or four vineyards close by.

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. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Tent Trailer.

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. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice campground with sites on the lake and higher up on a small mountain over looking the lake. The sites on the mountain are wooded and farther apart. The sites on the lake are closer, but not too close. We had a good time, but this campground can become noisy if some campers are there for concerts and drinking/partying. The location is good and you can get to grocery stores and restaurants easily. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Motorhome.

Return visit for the BMW Motorcycle Georgia Mountain Rally the first weekend in May. We reserved a lake front site that has the mountains in the background - beautiful! Sites on the lake are smaller and narrow. Good variety of sites to meet all needs. Close to town for restaurants and shopping. Full hookups including cable TV and strong wi-fi signal. Clean, well run, and in a great location for motorcycling, hiking, or exploring. Within an hour of Helen, GA, and Highlands, NC, and much to do to keep you busy.

Love this park! Great large wooded view sites. Neat, clean and well kept. Hilly and good for walking, biking. Nice pavilion for gatherings. Lake is beautiful and many sites have views. Then go down the Mtn. and visit Helen. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground, close to the town of Hiawassee, the fairgrounds, lake, and some very nice sites. This was our first time to camp at this campground and were not familiar with the sites. We would not recommend site A-24 unless you were camping with another family or friend being in A-22. Sites faced each other and we had no privacy and the campers in the other site had dogs who barked a good bit. We saw no other sites in the campground that are placed facing each other as these two are, but we would not go back to that site. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for the Georgia Mountain Motorcycle Rally in early May. We stayed in the full service area located near the fairgrounds. The park is in a wonderful location near the center of town and surrounded by many places to visit. This campground has excellent facilities. The restrooms were well maintained even through there was over 700 motorcyclists here for the rally. I walked the campground and there is a wide variety of sites from well shaded to sunny. There are lake front and lake view sites. There is a nice playground for children. We will return with our toy hauler for a week stay next year. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Tent.

This campground is located close to everything in the area. We found it to be easy in and out with no really tight turns. We enjoyed our space (E6) as it had lots of tall trees and was shaded throughout the day. The asphalt pad was approximately 80 feet long and level with no slope to either side or front to back. While our site was not conducive to satellite reception due to the trees, other sites we noticed were available with few or no trees, some of them near the water. Our site had very clear cable TV hookup with 60 (+/-)channels. The WI-FI signal was strong although some camped at the water's edge under the hill could not pick it up. The two shower locations were very clean as were the restrooms. The campground was filled to capacity, yet was very quiet after 10pm. We would stay there again and have secured reservations two weeks away for a concert in their on-site music hall. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Wow, there are staggering lake views from waterfront sites and even from inside sites as campground is hilly with open lake views. Sites are spacious, asphalt paved, and arranged for privacy. The park is divided into area north, and south of the highway. If you require full service, be sure to specify campsite on same side (north) as the Fairgrounds. The south side very suitable for tent, pop-up camping, but pretty tight for trailers and motor homes. There are lots of 'events' at the Fairgrounds which causes sites to be booked well in advance during these periods. I Suggest that you call to be sure sites are available. I stayed one week while attending conference in the area and would go back many times. I had a very good experience. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Had a bad experience with this park that cost me time and money. Reserved a site for a 31’ TT, confirmed it by telephone two week before arriving, and was bumped to a different site that was only 35’ long and no sewer. It was a glorified tent site on the side of a hill. Electric and water hookups were at least 50’ part from each other with the water outlet in the grass between sites. Park was sold out and they could not give me another site. I wasted eight hours of driving, $78 in diesel, and 250 miles of wear and tear (half on curvy mountain roads). I was given a full refund but there was no apology or explanation from the staff as to why this happened. We were supposed to be camping with 10 other families at the park. Waste. Of. Time. Lesson I learned? Always get a paper confirmation and record who you spoke with originally! We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.
