We checked this campground out but did not stay. Just looking and we were pulling our pop-up Trailmanor behind Yukon XL at the time. Nightly rate of $18 is reg site WITH discount. Bit tight, but OK roads going in and around campground. Small campground with 42 sites and about 13 of them tent only. Some 50 amp available. Sites 5, 6,7 and double sites 13 and 14 are waterfront on Blue Ridge Lake. VERY tight boat ramp in campground. Not sure we could get our 24 ft boat in area. Ranger was very helpful and friendly. 5 tent sites are two regular that are first come first serve, all others can be reserved online. Did not check out, but campground did have two comfort stations. Beach, picnic area also available. Reserve 1-877-444-6777. Blue Ridge Lake is beautiful, fairly small mountain lake and campground is open Mid- April thru October. We camped at Morganton Point in a Tent Trailer.

For larger sites, more boat friendly see Woodring Branch and Doll Mountain on Carter's Lake in Ellijay.

This is a National Forest CG. All RV sites have water and electric. Sites A thru F are for tent campers only. Sites 33, 34, 35 and 37 are for tent campers as well. Sites 31 and 32 could handle a small class B or C or a truck camper, but I would not try to put any trailer RVs in them and they are dry camping sites. Sites 24-30 seem to be in an older section of thee park. None are exceptionally level and are suitable for smaller RVs under 30 ft. These sites require you to travel to the end of the road and then go around a loop to turn around. The turn is very sharp and not wide enough to make the turn without your trailer wheels dropping off of the pavement and running through the dirt/mud as evidenced by the many tire marks on the inside of the turn. Even though I swung as wide as possible, I dropped the tires off on my 30ft trailer. All of the sites from 22 up thru 37 are serviced by an older bath house with 1 shower stall and 1 toilet on each side. I will say that even though the bath house is old, it is extremely clean. Sites 1-21 are in an area that seems to have been renovated recently and look like they could handle longer units. I still would not bring a really large RV here though. The best sites appear to be sites 5 and 6 as they have the best unobstructed water view and are adjacent to the shore. The bath house in this area is very new and also extremely clean. It has 3 showers and 3 toilets on each side. We camped at Morganton Point in a Travel Trailer.

Bring your tick repellent. Even though we didn't hike in the woods and walked our dogs on the roads and the grass on the sides of the roads, we found numerous tick on ourselves and our dogs.

Awesome Campground located on beautiful Lake Blue Ridge! The recently renovated campground and bathhouse was in excellent shape. Very attentive campground hosts kept everything clean, and made sure everyone followed the rules...which always makes for a nicer experience for everyone! We will definitely be returning! We camped at Morganton Point in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Campsite 6 was great, but was a bit challenging to maneuver. The campground has placed large bolders all throughout the campground to keep people from parking on the grass, but it actually makes the campsite difficult to get into with some strategic parking skills. I was also kind of bugged that Recreation.gov added a $19 Reservation Fee to my reservation on top of the cost of the campsite. I've never seen them do this before for other campgrounds.

First off, this campground DOES have a dump station. As of 10/2016 their website still has a bold warning that it does not - but the forest service recently built a new bath house, dump station, and made a lot of nice improvements like new fire rings, lantern poles, etc.

Sites 1-20 are on a loop road around a new and very nice bath house.

Sites 21-37 are on a long road and the higher numbered sites don't have power and are a LONG way from the bath house - but they are very nice sites with lots of privacy.

The new bath house has "push button" showers and no heat (that I could see) for the cooler months. But it's a very nice new bath house!

I would not recommend site 2 where we stayed. It's right next to the new Septic tank and field and there was a very slight but constant smell.

Hosts were outstanding - friendly and helpful - but kept a VERY watchful eye on things.

There is fishing and a beach but no real hiking. However, with a short car ride you can reach the Forest Service Aska trail system which has multiple hikes of varying lengths and difficulties. Ask the hosts for a map. There are also multiple places nearby to tube the river. We camped at Morganton Point in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Consider taking the Blue Ridge Mt. Scenic Railroad in BlueRidge or visiting Tank Town where you can drive a real tank (well actually an armored personnel carrier but it drives like a tank!) and play with real construction heavy equipment. River View Restaurant nearby is an excellent place to eat if you can find a place to park.

This is old Federal park on Lake Blue Ridge that has been recently refurbished. New bath house and new dump station. Some sites have had new fixtures installed, tables, water, electrical but not all campsites. This campground is better suited for smaller to average size campers and motor homes.

Host were great and very helpful, managed by Cradle of Forestry. Saw some negative reviews on host; these are absolutely not true. They were very friendly.

Many nearby outdoor activities, mountain trails, water falls, kayaking on Toccoa River, longest swinging bridge east of MS.
There is beach and boat landing but they are separate from campground but very nearby - within easy walking distance.

Not open year round. We camped at Morganton Point in a Travel Trailer.

If you have 5th wheel check with host before booking to make sure it will fit site. Would not recommend 35 to 40 foot 5th wheel.
