The owners were screaming and cursing all weekend at at least 7 different groups of peaceful campers. The campground was quiet and peaceful other than the owners. Their behavior and foul language was absolutely shocking. There are other campgrounds available. Pick one of those. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is without a doubt one of the cleanest and best run campgrounds we have ever camped in. The grounds are immaculate and many of the sites literally back right up to the Hiawassee River. Utilities connections are in excellent condition. Cable is included with many channels - we couldn't receive any local channels OTA here. There are no signs on either Highway for the campground though! Recommend using Kelley Road off Hwy 76 as Streak Hill Road off Hwy 75 is doable (38 ft MH pulling F150) but is pretty narrow. Only knock I would say is the sites are bit close together but it's a minor one as the positives far outweigh that one negative. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Found Riverbend Campground online and we just got back today from a weekend stay. I LOVED this campground. The grounds are impeccably maintained. Very clean. The lots are really wide and very level. We had a lot along the river and just loved it. My husband fished a couple days but didn't catch anything. The bathrooms are meticulously clean. I loved the full hookup, wifi and lots of cable channels. Everything truly was top notch. My husband and I live about 90 minutes from Riverbend and we said we'll definitely be back as this may be one of our top spots going forward. I bet it's beautiful in the fall. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We've stayed at this park a few times. We're slated to go back, this May. This campground is family owned. The owners are very sweet and very helpful. The lots are spacious and level. The campground is clean and well maintained. Location is close to the cute town of Helen and markets are very close by in Hiawassee. The camp store is very, very basic... but they do have hand-scooped ice cream cones that are a fun treat. Small playground and pool; both are well maintained. Laundry facilities and bath houses are also well maintained. Owner enforces the 5 mph speed limit which is a huge blessing for those of us with little ones. In the past we've camped here in a 32' travel trailer; we now have a 40' fifth wheel and am not concerned about fitting in. The road into the campground is a bit narrow, so take it slow. Also, our first trip I thought we had turned off onto the wrong road as it feels like you're driving down to grandma's house, rather than looking for a campground but don't worry, it's there around the bend. Campground has mostly back-in sites... there are 3 or 4 pull through sites that are very, very long. They would fit any sized rig. Definite gem. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Riverbend is in the Georgia mountains so be prepared to drive on steep, curvy roads. We didn't see a sign at the turn onto Streak Hill Road, so be watching. Ingles Market in Hiawassee. Closest Walmart is 14 miles away.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to see Helen, Ga., Anna Ruby Falls and Brasstown Bald. Also use Streak Hill road from highway 17 or Kelly road from highway 76. Do not use the Garmin approach as these small roads aren't suited for RVs or trailers.

I would have given the park a 10 if their WiFi was decent. They appear to have plenty of repeaters so you can always get on their network, but their bandwidth is insufficient so internet access is SLOW, SLOW, SLOW or sometimes non-usable. You are given an access code for your device and each rig may request 3 codes.

The sites are very spacious, very long and nicely spaced between each other. Most are back-ins, but are correctly angled for easy access. Most sites have a pleasant view out the back, without another rig "in your face". Their brand new section contains just a few pull thru sites. They have a small indoor meeting room for groups to use and also a picnic pavilion.

We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is about 20 miles from Helen, GA although the road to get there is windy, hilly, with lots of switchbacks.

There's a very nice Ingles grocery store in town and Hiawassee Hardware "has everything" from housewares to hardware. The nearest Wal-Mart is in Blairsville, about 20 miles away.

This is our third visit here, and each time it gets better. This is a family operated business whose members put their heart and soul into this park. It's clean, very scenic and professionally run. Management goes out of the way to please campers who stay in everything from tents to large motor homes. There are many country roads leading to a large variety of attractions, restaurants and other venues. While staying here a mechanical issue developed with our motor home. The park's staff recommended a local business who made the repairs in a timely and inexpensive manner. I highly recommend this park. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Great family friendly park. Love the pool. Located on a beautiful river where the kids fished and caught some great fish. Nice shaded areas. Pet friendly.
