Lake Tobesofkee was a disappointment for us this time. We made reservations at least 30 days prior to our arrival and were told we had a pull-through site. An hour before we were to arrive while on the road, their office called us to tell us that due to electrical problems we would have to do a back-in site. Our promised site was level, this one was not and it lacked a sewer hook up. In talking with the workers who are fixing the electrical problem they said they knew of the problem 6 months before we arrived. My complaint is why didn't the office personnel tell us of this situation when we made our reservation. Maybe they were afraid of losing revenue. For those stalwart campers who will still come to Tobesofkee, many of their sites are torn up and their men's restrooms/showers were less than inviting/closed leaving only the woman's side. Their picnic tables had what appeared to have black mold growing on the table top and while they offer cable TV we had to guess each channel's network since we were offered no listing handout. If I had a camping crystal ball I'm not sure that I now see Tobesofkee in our future. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.

Like many others we have had reservation problems with this park. We called exactly three months to the day before our desired stay and were told we couldn't have a week at any of the pull-throughs, but they could only give us four days as the weekend was already reserved which shouldn't have been reserve able by itself since it was longer than the three months away. It seems they play favorites with their friends? We had a FHU pull-through which was very nice with a lake view and enjoyed it very much. All utilities were fine and the grounds crew kept up the mowing as needed. The sites are large and you can't beat it for the price. We had good Verizon coverage and a clear shot to the DTV satellite. If they would improve their reservation process, it would be unbeatable for this area. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.

This was our 4th stay here while traveling and we had reserved #45 which is the nicest pull-thru. Upon arrival we were told they had made an error and given away our site! "I was hoping you wouldn't show up so I wouldn't have to deal with this situation!" was what the lady at the entrance to the park stated! Oh well, we took a back-in ($3.00 cheaper) and made a mental note to contact them the night before to confirm arrival. Very nice place to stay overnight - reasonable and scenic. Nice seafood restaurant about 1/2 mile away. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.

First time going to this park. Been at Arrowhead Campground several times. We just purchased a new 5th wheel and this was the shake down trip with it. This park is about 40 miles from home and a good get away area. We arrived after dark and check in just took a couple of minutes and the person was very nice. We found our site very easily. The pad was level and was a full hook up site with 30 and 50 amp. service. The lot was on a slight grade for about 40' then dropped down to the lake where there are benches to sit on. The campground only had about 5 other units there and was very quiet. The view was nice and we saw a Bald Eagle flying from tree to tree for about an hour. We use an electric fence for our dogs and they had a blast on the lot and when we took them for walks. There is also a disk golf course there and we will have to try it some time. There is a boat ramp here and you can pull your boat up to shore by the campground. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Only a few minuets off I-75 and from shopping and eating establishments.

Wonderful park...on the lake...just beautiful. A few pull thru sites w/full hookups. A really natural location in the middle of an urban area. Just about a mile off I-75. No traffic noise. Near Macon. Wish it was closer to Atlanta. We'll be back! We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.

I certainly cannot rate this campsite as highly as others have. SOME of the sites have sewer connection, but most don't. Be sure to ask if this is a requirement. We stayed in site 27. It was on a slight downhill slant and was relatively small. Not much room to put outdoor chairs. We could not open the awning because a tree was in the way. The showers were clean but the shower was not a spray. It was a straight stream of water sort of like a garden hose. On the plus side the lake is visually very pleasant and the sandy beach was very nice. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.

We camped overnight and would come back. It was a pleasant park. We had a view of the lake. Saw wild turkeys in the morning by our camper. Our site 40 wasn't quite level. We liked the cement pads on the sites. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Tobesofkee, Claystone Campground was a very pleasant one night stop over enroute to our home. We were give a spacious FHU pull thru site (#45) that gave us an unobstructed view of the lake. By nightfall, most all of the sites were full so this is obviously a popular place. In the morning we were greeted with geese and wild turkey around our site. There is a nice but challenging Frisbee golf course beside some of the campground. Our Verizon cell worked well and shopping or eateries are within 4 miles of the front gate. If you are not self contained, the restrooms showers are not conveniently located. This was not a problem as we are fully self-contained. We will visit this campground in the future.

We camped here to attend Mercer University's Homecoming events. We had reserved site 23 but because the campground was not fully booked we changed to site 44. Even though site 44 is close to the lake, it should be avoided if possible because the sewer and water source are on the opposite sides of the lot from the electric and TV cable outlets. It's a pull-through site, but the amenities are a hassle to use because they are not located on the same side. Eventually we pulled our RV so the sewer line will be on the right side to our camper's sewer tank and the electric source on the wrong side. Also, our view to the lake was obstructed when site 45 was occupied. The bathrooms and toilet are clean and well maintained. One of the mornings, inmates from the jail house were cleaning the restrooms. It was a bit odd since we didn't except that. Obviously, they use them to maintain the facilities. The cable TV didn't work for us, but we weren't around the campground much of the time to need it or seek for help. Tmobile's 4G or 3G didn't work in spite of the fact that several subdivisions are located around the lake and campground. We will definitely use the campground again next year when we visit Macon for Mercer's University activities. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wow! A beautiful park with lake views and long, sandy beaches. Surprising to find cable television and laundry machines in a county park. Gravel roads, concrete pads. Showers very clean, though laser-beam sprays. We will most definitely stop here again, just a few miles from the interstate, but worlds away in peace.

Could not beat the view in site 49. Interestingly, the site next to us, while FHU had the sewer on the wrong side. Good value. Reserve ASAP to get the best sites. The lakeside sites are held for 7 days or less so we had better luck. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.

This place is great. We are lakefront (site #43) in a pull-through site on a concrete slab. The lake view and woodsy view are equally fabulous. The rate for a FHU can't be beat. There's plenty of grass for the dog at our site and plenty of room to take walks. There's a beach, but we didn't walk to it, so can't comment. The cable worked well, and we had good Verizon connection. Shopping and restaurants are close. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park with recently updated restrooms which were immaculate. Some of the sites aren't real level, but ours was fine. Nice views of the lake and some of the sites have lots of shade. It even had cable TV hookups. Verizon air card worked fine. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was only a one night stay for us and it rained, so we didn't get much of a chance to look around. It was a lovely campground with some of the nicest restrooms we've ever seen. The lake was very pretty and the grounds were very well kept. We stayed in a pull through site that was very easy to get into and out of. No trees were available in the pull through sites and therefore no shade (at least the ones with full hookup). It looked like the back in sites were in the prettier, more wooded areas.

One of the best places I have ever stayed. Large sites with paved pads overlooking a lovely lake. A county park with 50 amp, sewer, and cable TV. How great is that! Hardly anyone there the night we stayed. Would stay here again in a heartbeat We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.
