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.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit nearby Helen, GA with its Austrian theme with great shops and restaurants. The park is located about 20 miles from Helen, a quaint little town with lots to do.

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. We stay in this campground a couple of times a year and would highly recommend it. Beautiful area. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are no signs when you turn off the main highway so make sure you have clear directions before traveling.

Camping at RiverBend Camground is an experience you can not forget. Hidden in the shadows of the mountains on the Hiawassee River, the owners greet you as strangers but say goodbye to you as friends.

It is a child's paradise where children are safe to swim,tube and ride their bikes. A pool and playground are centrally located in the park. Laundry facilities are also located in the park.

Adults gather around campfires or in the rocking chairs on the office porch to share old and new memories/

The landscaping is beautiful,filled with flowers and trees that welcome each season.

The facilities are excellent and very well maintained by a staff that goes out of it's way to see that each camper receives personal attention to their needs. Cable and Wi-Fi available without charge. Fire rings are on every site.

We have camped at Riverbend several times and will continue to do so in the months ahead. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The Kelly Road coming in was a little narrow for a 40 foot motorhome and also some low hanging limbs. UPS had pulled partially off the road to make a delivery and a truck was park on the opposite edge of Kelly Road so we just had to stop until the delivery was made. Sites are gravel and pretty level tho we did put blocks under our 2 right tires. Everyone gets shade either in the morning or afternoon. The park appears clean and well maintained. It is not far from NC or SC and is 15 miles from Helen, GA. There is fishing, rafting, golfing, horseback riding, antiquing, and of course eating available fairly close. We were here with our Good Sam group for a long weekend. The campground sponsors a fish fry on Thursday night--they furnish the fish and hush puppies, you bring everything else. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our favorite kind of park, family owned, large enough to have all the facilities and small enough for comfort. Our only negatives are that the sites are a little to close together, and the showers a little far from some sites. There are seasonal residents here, but no park models (hooray). Rate is for 7 days. Although there are only 2 washers & dryers, there was never anyone waiting. $2 wash & $1.50 dry. We found the park from Helen with GPS, but there is no sign on the highway. Close to Hiawassee which has lots of activity, and beautiful lake. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

We really liked this campground. Seems to be well run. Nice people who are respectful of their neighbors. Seems to have quite a few 5th wheel trailers set in place as though they are there permanently. The grounds and gravel roads are very well maintained. The sites have good 50 amp service, great water pressure, sewer. Most all sites seemed level and are spaced well enough to give privacy. Weekly rate is buy 6 nights, get another night free. We would definitely stay here again as it is close to all the interesting and fun things to do in north Georgia including NC. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Had a wonderful stay at this CG. Owners andCG were very, very nice. Lots of motor coaches and 5th wheels, and a small community of full timers. We had a river front site that had quite a bit of food items left behind, on the site, in the fire pit and on the shore of the river. Let them know so they didn't think it was us and they said they would get it cleaned up, but we had done most of it before they got there. Bathrooms, pool and laundry were very nice, modern and clean. Wi-Fi worked perfectly we were on site C12. Only thing that I did not like was they originally told us there was a service truck that came by everyday to dump tanks as we didn't have a sewer site, but when we checked in they told us it was M-W-F, which was fine as we checked in Sunday. Monday morning, came and they came to service the tanks, but said they were only doing grey and didn't do black until Fridays (we were leaving Thurs). Our tanks are rather small so it caused us a little managing of the water but we made it work. All in all, it was a great place and we will go back again.

Our group of ten units spent a great week here. Great campground, very well kept. Gravel roads drain well in the rain. Covered areas for group meetings. Good location for seeing the surrounding area/attractions. 2 (HE) washers and dryers, could use more machines. Only negative is there is no sign on the main road. Make sure you follow the directions on the web site. Looking forward to returning to this campground. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground. Lots of seasonal units with no owners present for our stay. Sites are large and level. Great hookups with plenty of cable TV stations. Looks like satellite dishes would work in most sites. Sites and roads are fine gravel. Road leading to entrance had some low branches which hit the top of our unit, but once in the campground roads were wide and it was easy to handle our 40 ft coach with a trailer. Most sites are back in, but they did have 3 pull through spots that were VERY long, at least 100 feet in length. We didn't use the bathroom or shower facilities although I did walk in and it appeared to be clean. Trash can only be deposited in a dumpster at the office, which is a long walk from some camp sites. Also, the dumpster was overflowing with garbage when we were here. Verizon air card worked with somewhat weak signal strength. Verizon cell service was ok. No AT&T cell or data signal. Park had nice landscaping and was well kept. I had limited interaction with the staff, but the lady that checked us in was nice. Arriving after dark is no problem, campground is well lit and it was easy to find our spot. Some kind of flying bugs which were everywhere made sitting outside in the evening miserable.

This was our first camping trip, and it was great. The only reason I didn't rate it as a "10" was the wi-fi. It is advertised that there are shortages, and they weren't kidding. I'd say it works 30% of the time and available only in the A section, and some C sections. The owners are VERY nice. This is a great family campground. My 5 year old loved the pool. Lot's of seasonals that were not present during the week. The childs play area needs some attention as the play set is starting to fall apart. Roads are gravel and kept nice. The sites are very level with all connections within 10 feet. The speed limit is 5 mph and strictly enforced. This makes you feel very safe with children and keeps the dust down. The campground is only 5 years old, and shade is somewhat limited. Within a few years it will be perfect. The sites on the river are very level with great access to the river if you want to fish. The sites are HUGE compared to some other campgrounds in the area we looked at. We already have planned additional trips here this year. HIGHLY recommend!!

The park was very large with many sites. The sites were level. The roads were level too, but were gravel. They did have a pool on the hill, which is away from most sites but it was not a terrible walk to get there. It is very secluded. Our site was on the river, which was very deep and slow moving with steep banks. It appeared good for fishing, but not for kids to play in. We would have prefered a site away from the river due to this. The staff was very friendly and had many activities planned for the kids. The only playground is located at the back of the campground. We enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We spent several weeks at this campground. Found it to be very clean and quiet. Owners and staff very friendly and helpful. Even though they claim to have a laundy room, they don't yet. Pool, of course, wasn't open yet. Cable excellent, didn't use WiFi. Need sign on main road so you know where to turn and when you go down the road it forks and you need to know which way to go. Will definitely recommend this campground. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

OK, I am giving this campsite a 10 right off the bat because they have one of the most fantastic Thanksgiving dinners anywhere. The owners supply the turkeys, hams, and pork and all the campers bring a covered dish or desert. This was our first time and there were almost 150 people at the dinner with enough food to feed twice that many. The owners are fantastic and really put in a lot of work to make this Thanksgiving dinner a real treat for all of us. Having said that, this campground is pretty good even without a Thanksgiving dinner. My only caveats are the bathrooms and the Wi-Fi. The bathrooms and showers are clean but they have something to be desired. They could use some improvement. The Wi-Fi is free and the owners will tell you that they are not responsible for it when it acts up. In our case we got good reception but it constantly cut out. Other then that you can read the other people's reviews and see that this is a great campground. We would go there again and I would encourage anyone to make advance reservations fro next Thanksgiving. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was absolutely beautiful! The grounds are very clean and manicured. The pads and roads are gravel, but they are packed down tight. We had a campsite right on the river. Just behind the camper was a swiftly moving picturesque river, and a magnificent mountain view from the front of the camper! Most of the sites have full hookups, but a few do not have sewer. However, that was remedied by the campground management coming to the non-sewer sites with a honey wagon on Monday and Wednesday and pumping both your black and grey water tanks. The campground and attendants were very nice and hospitable. The grounds were absolutely meticulous. Cable worked great. Many channels available and the picture was perfect. Cell phone signal (I have AT&T wireless) was great. There is free wi-fi available. Our campsite was a little too far from the store/office so the wi-fi signal was unstable from our camper. I walked to a picnic table a few campsites closer to the office and had no trouble with it. In addition to the beauty around you, it is a short drive into Hiawassee, Brasstown Bald, Helen, Lake Chatuge, and High Shoals Falls. There is lots to do in and around the campground. Fishing was not very good while we were there because of the low water levels due to the drought. We will definitely be going back to this campground!
