The front office was very nice when we checked in. The first site we were given we could not fit in because of our slides but the easily moved us. But the park lacks pride of ownership. There is trash everywhere. There was even a pile of blankets and dishes like a bum was living in the woods next to our site. The bathroom toilets would not flush and the bathrooms looked like they have not been cleaned in a while. The grill was broken off its pole and sitting on the ground. We walked down to the dock and it was very sketchy/shaky and did not seem very stable. Very disappointed in the campground. We have been to several campgrounds this summer and this was by far the worst. - Vicki M

We arrived at this location with our grandchild. After 9:00 pm the site beside us had their music so loud that we couldn't enjoy our stay. Not only were they drunk, they also were listening to derogatory music cranked up to the point that we could not enjoy our stay. We notified the camp authorities and they didn't do a thing to reduce the noise. - Doug Siegel

We are in a 37' fifth wheel. The roads are bad. The sites are worse. In some cases dangerous. Sites are on a steep side hill but very narrow. Ours is over 5" out of level across the site. I'm up on two planks and still not level.
Steps on the site to access the picnic table are so rotten that they are clearly a danger.
Because there are so few Rv parks near Atlanta they are able to get away with very little maintenance.
If you are in a tent or a pop up or a 24' travel trailer you may be ok.
But big rigs and 5th wheels should think two or three times before trying this place. - GSchlecht

The park was very run down. Sites were in need of work. Park is very old. We had camped here approximately 20 years back with the kids. Went back to see about planning a holiday stay. They have spent a lot of money on the water park but none on the campground. Very disappointed. One night stay and left. - RDM1980

A few years ago, before the current management team took over this campground, I considered this campground to be my favorite in NE Georgia. I have a new travel trailer now and drove to Blue Ridge Campground (Lake Lanier Islands) with a friend to scope the campground out again with the anticipation of camping there this week. WELL! I was shocked at the condition of the campground! There were large pot holes in the roads, large enough that I had to steer around them. I saw campsites that were so overgrown with vegetation you would no longer be able to back your travel trailer into them. I found one site I initially considered staying at, however the grill was broken and unusable and it looked as though the site had a sewer connection, but the pipe was full of a "liquid". There was one, lone, older travel trailer parked in one of the sites and it looked like it was abandoned as well. I drove back to the guard house and asked the lady when the campground would be open. To my surprise, she said "Its open now!" I asked her if they were planning on making repairs and she said "Not as far as I know". Honestly, the place looks abandoned. And for $42 a night, there are other, much better maintained campgrounds in the area, at less money! - Travelforlife2015

When you come through the gates it is mesmerizing. Absolutely beautiful resort. Arriving at the campground I was totally surprised that it was part of the same resort. Roads were terrible at best. Campsites were clean and utilities worked except for the sewer hookup. Most of the sewer hookups are not usable. Beautiful views of the lake. Restrooms and showers worked but could use upgrades. Shower stalls had broken tiles and no lighting in the showers. - F35mech

This was a really great park for a 2 night stay. We stayed Fri-Sun and had a great time. The sites were nicely laid out with some decent privacy between them. Each had water and power (50amp) and a picnic table with a fire ring. They sold firewood on site. The campground is right on a lake which was beautiful and very serene. There were some boats on the lake (Lake Lanier is extremely popular for boaters) but we did not notice any extra noise. The staff were all very nice. The dump station would be my only "ding" on this park as getting in requires some tight turns. Also, the park gates close at 10:30 so you have to be in or you get locked out. - clink-182

Sites 12 thru 25 are the most scenic and are the ones being reviewed. They are on a peninsula overlooking the lake. All sites have tall pines offering shade and sun. The parking pads are paved and level but narrow. They also have picnic tables that sit on a concrete pad and offer a fire ring as well as a BBQ grill. The only draw back to many of the sites is the ground drops off steeply from the parking pads making exit/entry to your camper difficult. We were in site #20 and to get to the first step of our camper was about 20 inches. If it were not for this I would have given the sites a rating of 10. - Poe Dog

Overall the stay was good, except for the rude and condescending behaviour to multiple people. I ended up hearing about other people having similar issues while on site. 30amp service worked, but my surge protector showed that the polarity was reversed. Might be an issue. There is one dump site. Worked well, except for it being a monsoon. Water really collect in the dump area and it's hard to keep it all stable while trying to unload. Our spot was great with a gorgeous view of the lake, near a beach where we were able to beach our boat. Really close to Atlanta and great for a weekend get away. Lady doing check in just needs an attitude adjustment. - manderson2228

First night in our latest camper. After a 10 year break we decided to purchase a small travel trailer and go see the country. We spent night one near our dealer just in case we needed something addressed - we didn't! Neat park but for short combinations only! Small campsites and tight roads don't lend themselves to trailers over 24 ft or so. Had a quiet night on the lake. - Champ203

This is a very nice campground on the lake. We stayed in May, and it was quiet and peaceful. The 3pm check-out is great. The sites are spacious and many of them are private, most of them have lake views, and they are very shady. We walked all through the park and there really isn't a bad site here, they are all beautiful. The tent sites are lovely and very private, the only downside to tent camping here would be that it's a bit of a walk to the restrooms. The only downside to camping in a Travel Trailer is that there is no sewer hook up--only a dump station. Also check the length requirements, big RV's can't get into this park. Our travel trailer is 25 feet (29 extended) and we had no problems. We will definately come back! - Hrm672

I've camped at Shady Grove multiple times and enjoy the place for the most part. There are some great sites on and off the water. Bathrooms are dated but well maintained and usually very clean. My biggest gripe is that I've found the staff working at check-in, to be a tad prickly. This appears to be a common occurrence given other reviews. Hopefully the park management will address that. - ToddCase

This CG appears to be well funded and is well maintained. Lots of maintenance going on when we were there, just prior to the Georgia spring break week. Layout is typical for a COE park (although it is a County park). Many good lake side sites, although many were tent sites (no power). Seems like the longer, larger sites with 50 amp power were in the higher numbers. Check the on line map carefully. Many of the lower numbered sites were too close for my liking. These were usually 30 amp (or no power) sites. My favorite sites for a large rig are 97, 98 and 85. Many of the large sites are "split level" to the sitting area. Access to the lake varies from site to site because of the steep banks. There is a good playground and fairly nice swimming beach. Only one dump station, but it is in good shape. Good over-the-air TV reception from Atlanta stations. Verizon coverage is 3/5 over the full CG. The CG terrain is moderate hills - fair for bicycles. Grocery store, hardware and a fishing center are nearby. CAUTION - As of the date of this review (3-30-2017), there is a low hanging communications cable on Shady Grove Road near the address of 7010, about 1 mile outside the CG gate. We hit the wire on the way out, but it did not snag on our AC. Others might not be so lucky - be aware of this and be careful. This was reported to the Forsythe County Sheriff's Office, AT&T and the campground. Hopefully it will be repaired soon. The height of the cable is approx 12' 3". - Bama Camper

Overall the campsite was good, and the front desk folks were efficient and friendly. The only bad thing was the over zealous park rangers with alcohol. We didn't have any issues but most of the other folks in our little area did and honestly it was just too much, following people, hiding in the woods and spying. It's all confirmed. Unless someone is a problem leave it alone. - manderson2228

I drive in from Toronto. I arrived late afternoon, tired and a bit apprehensive due to the size and height of my rig. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
The site was a drive through with enough length to accommodate both my Smart and toyhauler. . In order to unload Smart and bikes I did need to use the access road.
The driveway was almost level, and the gravel picnic area and well manicured lawn pristine.
There was only one washer dryer in our area, but the area was clean and the machines worked well.
The park itself is absolutely gorgeous, with mature trees and lakefront on three sides.
This is the nicest place we have been so far.
A note for motorcyclists; if you are looking to ride the Tail of the Dragon and back be ready for a long day. - BHam

We liked the park. The only issue we had was finding trash cans. There was only one in the park, and it was not convenient. - Georger

Bald Ridge Creek Campground is a beautiful, well laid out, maintained campground. One of the prettiest parks I've ever been to and I have been to many parks all over the US. Every site has a beautiful view of the lake and lots of shade. Our site was long and level with utilities (50amp and water - no sewer) in good working order and well placed on the site. The pads were very generous with the trailer on concrete and an additional crushed granite area (45'x20') that had a recessed fire pit, bar-b-q pit, and an extra long picnic table. We enjoyed a quite weekend and would definitely come back to this park again and again if we lived in this area. - the Fishers

Stayed four nights at this campground and feel like I have found my favorite place to camp! Beautifully maintained grounds and camping sites along with wonderful views of Lake Sidney Lanier. I found the neighbors were very nice, respectful and tidy as well. Just a wonderful place! - Travelforlife2015

$28 a night Monday-Wednesday. $32 for Thursday-Sunday. We paid 1/2 price with our America the Beautiful ( senior ) pass. Located about 10 miles off I985 and about 30 miles north of Atlanta. Nice, clean, COE park. Roads are paved and easily accessible to any size rig. Sites are laid out in along a number of 'spurs', some are open and some are not. Some are pull thrus, some a back in. Most have a view of the lake and may or may not have easy access to it! Each restroom building contains one washer & dryer - .75 each to use, a nice surprise! The park is dry, and you have to sign on check in that you understand that rule. The reason for my 8 rating is that they lock a gate here at 10:30pm and open it at 7:00am. If you want to return later than that you have to park outside and walk in - this is 'technically' not allowed but had 'never' been a problem. This put a bit of a hitch in a few of our plans! Besides that, it's a wonderful place to stay! - Amls

Delightful campground on Lake Lanier. Our site (#5) was in the trees so we didn't have as great a lake view as we would have liked, but it worked out just fine. Internal roads are tight for big rigs, but manageable. Roads and parking pads are paved, and there are concrete patios with picnic tables and a fire ring. Sites are placed with plenty of space and trees between them, so you're not parked right on top of your neighbor. Water and electric (30 & 50 amp) available, but no sewer hook-up, although there is a dump station. - boardman

Twin lakes is neither a good or bad park, it's not really an RV park, but is more similar to a mobile home park. Absolutely no amenities or facilities available. Electrical service is iffy at best, so be sure you have surge protection on your coach. Tight sites, grass & weeds growing through the gravel and there is no policing of resident's sites and many are cluttered with junk. It's primary benefit is that it is literally the only park with FHU sites in the area and the owners capitalized on this by raising the monthly rates by 25% over our visit last year with zero improvements Of services or amenities. The current owner seems to have little interest in their guests. - Dngreen51

Very nice rv park. Our site was directly on a beautiful lake. Very easy to maneuver. Lots have a sunny, open exposure. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. - kap

Needed a place, convenient to Gainesville, to help out our aging parents for the weekend. It was a very cold weekend. The attendant was very helpful and let us pick our site from those available. As it is an older park, not all sites are easy to get a 40' diesel pusher in and out. I chose site 36 as it was almost a pull-thru. That site only had 30 amp service but we didn't need a lot of amperage. Ran the furnaces, microwave and TV without problem. Some sites do have 50 amps. Beautiful park with hardwood lined hills on Lake Lanier. RV's must pass through two, coded security gates so we felt very safe. We would certainly camp here again. - coastaltom

We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in site 42, with a group of others that had sites 41 and 40. We were right on the lake, and close to the beach, playground and bath houses. This was our first trip here, and we will return. Some sites are not as close to the waters as others, so plan accordingly. - WODADDY

We love this campground. There is a security gate front entrance, plus another security code gate to the camping area for travel trailers and motorhomes. The sites were very clean. Trash cans are provided close to each site and they are checked emptied daily. The bath facilities are kept clean. The security truck rides by frequently. Not all sites have a fire pit, but we had one this time. The water level was up, so we were able go fishing at our site. We enjoyed it and appreciate the work that goes into maintaining and securing the grounds. We had a very relaxing visit. - gacamper50

Site is a great lake front view. One of the grounds and bath house keepers was very diligent in completing her job and doing it well. The men cutting the grass need to be assigned other duties. There is only small patches of grass. They seemed to ride the mower more than actually work. They need to cut the grass with a weed eater. The attendants at check in/out were always pleasant. Over all for the value it was a great place to camp. It is a kid friendly campground. We highly recommend the campground. We enjoyed boat riding on the lake. - gfales

We stayed here for a coupe nights on a whim, and then came back the following week for another 5 nights. As others have said, the park is greatly underused, and I don't know why! It's BEAUTIFUL, quiet and very well laid out. I will warn that some of the sites are REALLY steep to get in and out of....may want to call ahead and check yours.
There's a lot of traffic on the lake on the weekends, but that makes for nice wave crashing sounds on the shoreline. So very relaxing!
The one thing that they could improve is the bathrooms. They're pretty outdated and don't have any paper towels or hand driers which is odd.
There are plenty of restaurants, stores etc....nearby. And even a movie theater if you have a rainy day. TV signal was in and out but cell service was strong (T-mobile and AT&T).
There's a GREAT laundromat in Gainesville called "Wash yer duds" and we highly recommend that if you need laundry facilities outside the ONE washer and drier onsite.
All in all, this is now one of our favorite parks and we can't wait to go back! It's too bad they close in September.... The fall colors are probably SPECTACULAR there! - doggpurr

This is a favorite! Sites are spread out and clean. Almost everyone has a view of the lake. Aside from boat engine noise, you get plenty of peace and quiet. Sites are level but a few have pretty steep entrance/exits. We stayed at site #43 which is a beautiful site but our travel trailer bumper scraped when exiting. We also stayed in site 43 which gives you a beautiful lake view if you have a large rear window. Both had a short trail to the lake to do some fishing from the bank. - budm108
