6 Parks near Milledgeville, Georgia
May 2015 - $30.00
We pulled in here on May 25th at 8 p.m at near dusk. We located the camp host and he was very gracious and friendly showing us several sites that were pull through. The neighbors felt like people we had met before. Everyone was so friendly. Semi gravel sites. Water pressure was good. We had a storm blow through while we're here and the feeling was everyone was together and willing to help each other out any need. But there was no damage. There is an area to launch a boat and you can even rent a boat for $45 an hour but it was not available. We spent 2 nights here instead of one because it was welcoming. WiFi is available. Price was as listed and the price was only $30 a night. Ice across the street at the gas station for a dollar and a half for 20 pounds because the store was closed. Heidi our dog thought it was very dog friendly and she could even splash in the river. - Blue Ruby and Starry

Interesting spot, basically a fish camp. The major occupation of visitors is fishing and the campground also has a marina. About half the lots are taken up by people who rent by the year and park a camper for use on weekends. There was nothing disreputable or yucky about the campers so it seems the owner has standards. The far end of the campground has one row for permanent residents that is run down but it is a large campground so they are far away. There is a campground host living on site. We have stayed here several times and it is one of our favourite places. Dog friendly with a nice little riverside beach where dogs can swim too. Mature trees on a ridge so there is lots of shade. The campground is a spit of land jutting into the lake and there are numerous docks. Many of the campsites are right on the water and you could dock your boat next to your site if you wish. Those sites fill up fast so make a reservation. The inner campsites are clean neat and well ordered, long but a little narrow. The WIFI is great and cable has 44 channels. Staff are pleasant and helpful. - Judy Birchland

Our first time camping someplace other than a state park. One the one hand, it was very kid friendly with lots of other children for the grand kids to play with. On the other hand, you don't get the space you get in a state park. Sites are cramped but relatively easy to get to. Other than the lake, it is not particularly scenic. But, the staff were very friendly and overall it was a good experience. Would camp here again if we had the grandchildren, otherwise we still prefer state parks. - drewcher

This park is just a short distance from Rte. 441. It is literally on the side of a mountain. We stayed in a transient pull-thru, and although it was very level side to side, it had our truck higher than the trailer. It was tolerable for one night. If we were staying longer, I would have put some 2x6 lumber we carry under the trailer to raise it some. All the hookups are close together, so that is nice. We had free cable, and WiFi, however the only thing we could get to connect to the WiFi was the wife's phone. The sites are gravel, and all the roads are paved. Nice! The wife used the pool and said the water was just perfect.
This is a busy place, people walking dogs, and going to and from the pool. There is a laundry, and showers. I used the bathroom/showers, and although it was spotless clean, the lobby had a bad smell to it. The vent fan sounded bad, and one light was burned out.
It is nice up on the hill here and it is a beautiful place to stay.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The grounds are clean.
We will be back to spend some time and explore Millegeville, which has a lot of history. - Jimal

While the entrance is a bit short and cramped with the office right there, once you are registered and inside a ways it is very easy to maneuver and unhook. We had a back in site which was ample for a 40' with toad. Nice areas to walk dogs. It seems that most people pick up keeping the campground clean. The worst area for non-compliance was the fenced dog pen. Limited number of pull thru sites but easy back in sites. We were in a very shaded site between two large trees. FHU with Cable TV & Wi-Fi...no problems connecting and getting email. Nice views and beautiful sunset. Very well kept grounds and facilities. You can tell the owners and staff care about their campground. Very friendly and helpful staff. Most relaxing stay. We have camped here before for just an overnight and want to come back and spend more time in this charming area. - SerenityRVing

Very overpriced. Sites are very close and no shade. The sewer connection is higher than the site and everyone knows it does not run uphill. The entry is very close and room for only 1 unit to turn in. We had to drive into town and make a u-turn since there was a motor home checking and no place to enter and get off the two-lane highway. - Wanda Wonderful

Gracious hosts, when they are there. Escorted me to site and helped get me set up. Site is immediately adjacent to power lines, busy and loud highway, as well as Georgia Power Plant Bridge. Bathroom is one stall, not necessarily cleaned or stocked with TP. Shower facility is a tiny, shower with trash on the floor. Most of the RVs there appeared to be itinerant workers. Convenient to many food choices. Sharp V in driveway made my little TT scratch going in and coming out. Uncertain if it would be problematic for a big rig, though there are clearly 5th Wheels and at least one motor home (appeared vacant). Prices are very reasonable for an area that has few CG options, but I can not recommend this as a desirable campground. (Never saw a cabin). Has access to Lake Sinclair, and provides rentals for jet ski's. Be aware the road noise is very loud, and grounds are not scenic, and the facilities are minimal. - Birdies

This campground is nicely wooded and most of the sites are shaded and level. While we enjoyed our stay, there are some pros and cons. Pros: level sites, quiet, not crowded, with a decent beach area. Cons: bath house was old and very dated, grass was overgrown, no trash receptacles anywhere in the park (had to go outside the gates to a dumpster), some sites have pea gravel but mine was dirt. Also the site I had was lower than the road. It rained one night so all of the water flooded our site. It appears that there are only two employees (the hosts) who work here. The campground is owned and operated by Georgia Power. I'm very surprised that they invest so little in the maintenance. Oh well, for 20 bucks what should I expect? - jconnally

This is a beauitful park on Lake Oconee - a real fisherman's park. There are nice level back in sites which were huge. The price was right for a two night stay. The park hosts were very nice and helpful as well. This one is on my list to return too. Only drawback was its a tad bit out of the way, but worth the drive. - User224

We celebrated Thanksgiving here with my family. This is a very clean campground with spacious sites. The facilities are a bit dated, but well cared for. Situated right on the lake with separate loops for RV & tent campers. Lots of trails to walk, friendly camp hosts, and neighborly campers. Some of the sites are far from being level, but otherwise a good place to kick back and enjoy some peace & quiet. - kdouthit

We were happy. Found this campground, very beautiful, very spacious. We got waterfront view of Lake Oconee. The ground was level. It's so many trees around so you need extra careful and skill when drive the motorhome or trailer because of the trees. Each site is full hook-up. You can't swim on the lake but you can bring your boat or kayak because there is a boat pier in the campsite. One of the best campground we visit. - dije1208

After leaving another campground in the area due to deplorable conditions, our family was lucky to be able stay at Old Salem campground. For $20 per night, you get ultra clean, newer restrooms, laundry, two new playgrounds, boat ramp, beach, and spacious sites with new picnic tables. We do our fair share of camping resorts, state parks, and private parks. This has to be one of our favorite campgrounds. Nice layout and family friendly. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys any type of camping. Will be returning for 4th of July. - Lulubelle80

Clean, well kept park on Lake Oconee. Most sites are gravel and large with good spacing. Each site has a nice table, fire ring, and grill. Lots of shade trees means satellite locations are at a premium. This is one of the Georgia Power parks. Shopping, restaurants, and movies and about 2 miles away in an upscale shopping area. It gets really busy on the holidays so get reservations. The park usually closes immediately following Labor Day but this year the doing a trial and will be open until September 28. Stop by and check it out. - Pjoe
