We stayed over Labor Day, so might not be a typical experience. We like the park and would stay again. It is unusual in that the River Campground is separated from office and Lake Campground by a big road. Lake side would be closer to pool and rentals but River side is shady, more secluded, and has a safer feel for kids. Over Labor Day, it was crowded and somewhat loud but more family oriented and festive--not a bad crowd.

If you have kids who like to explore and ride bikes I recommend the River side. The Lake side is smaller and steeper and leads right into the public area. Most people might not feel as comfortable letting kids ride off on bikes on that side. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The pool is $5 per person per day and is open to the public. Not included in camp price. If you go, take chairs, cooler, etc. There are not any chairs or shade at pool. There is a little snack stand. Historical trail is short and with big sight seeing payoffs but a bit steep.

Convenient to I-75 and a great place to stay for overnight while traveling north/south. Stayed here twice in seven day period. Have camped here over fifty nights over the years and it continues to be our "go to" park when we are in the area. Camp hosts and staff are always helpful and friendly. Park has 50 amp service in some arear but most are 30 amp. No sewer hook ups. Beautiful falls and lake. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The overall rating is lower because there is no sewer hook up. I feel they are a bit expensive for no sewer hook up. It is a beautiful state park with lots of hiking trails. Take one to the falls, you will not be disappointed. The sites are leval, gravel and roomy. The roads are all paved. There is always a campground host to help with anything you need. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest state parks we have been able to stay in. There are no sewers, but they have 50 amp service, water, and pull thrus large enough for the biggest coaches. There is plenty of good fishing, kayaking opportunities, and trails to walk. The park is pet friendly, and there are lots of places for the pets to walk. The only downside would have to be the distance to the town of Jackson. Take whatever you will need. Shopping is about 21 miles. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

This quiet state park has only 13 pull throughs. It is easily accessible from Interstate 75. Most sites are heavily wooded but park staff will identify the few with a decent chance for satellite TV if you ask; after that the customer picks the site on a first-come basis. The $28 price reflects a 20% senior citizen discount but not a one-time $5 charge for a park pass, making High Falls relatively expensive for a camp with no WiFi and hookups only for electricity and water. There is a dump site on the way out. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Overnight stay heading down I-75. Convenient stop, close to Interstate but quiet. Bathrooms needed a bit of work but typical for state park. Easy check in and out.Large spots. Falls were nice but didn't have time to explore. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is water and electric only. Sites are gravel, mostly level, and wooded. Lots of hiking trails and biking trails. We have been here before and will be back. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful state park and campground. Campground and roads are big rig friendly. We found the upper section of the campground provided the best campsites (sites 65-88.) This section offered tree covered sites, but also provided open skies to get a satellite signal. Pull-thru sites are available. Campsite included a fire pit and picnic table. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Campground is within 5 min of freeway access. Gas, grocery and dining were a 20 min drive from campground. High Falls State Park includes some amazing hiking trails along the river. Sections of these trails are wood deck platforms, with steps and hand rails for easy access. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice level pull-through sites with 50 amp. Our site had nice view to the woods. Big rigs able to navigate. Although no sewer, does have gray water areas throughout campground, which is helpful. Nice park to explore. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hadn't been to High Falls State Park in about 10 years. This is the first time we camped at the newer section of the campground - the River Campground. I think this is one of the nicest state park campground in Georgia. The sites are well spaced apart, shaded, easy to get in/out of and there is lots to do in this park and in the surrounding area. The comments on level sites are mostly of concern to motorhomes. The sites tend to be very level side to side. But some are sloped along the length of the site. This isn't a problem for a tent or trailer as you can adjust. I can see how it might be difficult for a motorhome - but there are a lot of nice sites for motorhomes as well. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful park. Check-in is on another side of the park, quite some distance to the actual campground. If you do not have transportation it is a hike, but if you follow the river trail it is actually a nice walk. Amazing how many people were on the rocks despite the large warning signs. Needless to say things went wrong and we saw a posse of rescue vehicles trying to get injured out. We were there for the 4th of July celebrations. The day recreation area was loud and smoky. The pool was loaded (extra fee for the pool as it is run by third party) and the noise even reached as far as the pool side campsites. These seem to be the shorter sites and yurts. Fortunately we were on the river side and the camp was much quieter. From this side there is a nice in and out hiking loop in the forest. We had a great stay! We camped at High Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

High Falls has different levels of sites. We selected a Premium Pull-through site that was fairly level. The roads into the campground are level. To register, you must go to the main park entrance and complete the process. Once that is complete, you go back on the main highway to get to the appropriate camping location. Having never been to this park before, it was nice that, once we paid for our site, we had the choice of any open Premium site. The only negative we have noticed is that many of the sites are not very level. Site selection is extremely important. The bath houses are extremely clean, as are the camp sites. The trail along the river was beautiful! I would strongly recommend that you take the trail to see the falls. They are great and the trail is well maintained. The camping sites are large an include a picnic, fire ring, water, and electric hook ups. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

We got the senior citizen discount. Regular rate $30. We only stayed one night, but got a chance to walk around a bit. Very nice park with a short walk to see the falls. Very clean park, clean bath rooms, hosts were very helpful. Quiet park with walking trails. The only change we would like to see is sewer hook up at each site. We would come back again. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Very convenient to I-75 and great for an overnight stay between Atlanta and Macon. Park is well maintained. Lots of trees in the camping area. Most back-in sites are easy to access and are large. Baths and showers were clean. Park was quiet with few visitors when we stayed in January. In addition to $29 camping fee there is a $5 park pass fee. We look forward to returning.

This is a very nice park. It was quite clean and well kept. There are falls a short distance away that provide beautiful scenery and hiking trails (we didn't have time to hike this trip). There is a well used public park adjacent to the campground - horseshoes, pavillions, kids playground, mini golf. I only have 2 complaints to lodge. 1) I do not like the fact that you cannot reserve specific sites. If you are a late arrival, as we were, you get whatever site remains. We were stuck directly across from the Campground Host and the bathroom (too much traffic for me and that is a personal preference), and 2) there is no dump station at the Lake Side campground. You must drive up the road and down a very steep, winding road across the street to the River Campground to use the dump station. It is a bit sketchy of a drive. Aside from those 2 items we will return - enjoyed our stay. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.
