We stayed here in a 45' motor coach. This is a pretty campground, with lots of potential, but it is not there yet. 3/4 are full timers, some who looks rundown, and others are very neat. For Motor coaches, the entrance is about a 110 degrees turn in and exit, with a very hard slope, so enter slowly, and expect a lot of twisting. We may not come back, for that reason, and the price for what you get. It was close to the friends we were visiting in the area. Most other campgrounds in the area were w/e only. This one had w/e/s. The grass was cut, the park was neat but still needs some ground repair. The interior one lane road was assault. The RV sites were gravel/grass. They have several small camping/tent sights next to the river. We were on site 12. It was not bad backing into. We did have to drive down a gravel lane (where there are more tent sites) just far enough to get lined up for backing, and then back in to site 12. After walking around though, for large rigs site # 2 (which was just taken before we got there), 12, and 21 are good sites. Here on #12, even with trees, we were still able to get direct sat hookup. The bathrooms were clean, the showers stalls were small, they did some rerouting of the plumbing outside the walls, and that made it looked unkept, but both bathrooms needs renovations. Again, this is a pretty park, with a little more work, it could be really nice. Not much to offer so for 50 amp hook up, $40.00 I felt was a little high. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

Very small place. Only a few sites available due to permanent residents. NOT big rig friendly. Very tight right turn into CG. No staff on site. Sites not level. Low branches (real low). Owner, who we spoke with on phone was polite and friendly. - TRDAWG

Not sure why this park doesn't get better ratings. It's quiet, spacious, peaceful and pretty. Fairly level and HUs work well. $30 per night seems excessive, though. GREAT BBQ place on the corner. - TheRollingJones

Check in was a 45 minute wait and poorly organized. Check out didn't happen because the gate was left unattended for considerable time periods. Our camp site was not well engineered, erosion of the approach drive and retaining walls made back in a nightmare. Charcoal grill was rusted out and useless. 30 amp service had a loose and shorting out breaker (Power went out and breaker was sizzling. Switched to 50 amp with adapter and was okay) right next to a spewing water hookup. Couldn't leave water on for more than a few minutes or we were in a lake. Dump station hydrant also had major leaks. The rest of the park is beautiful, well maintained and the falls and mountain views are epic. IF you go pick your site carefully!! - Dana D

First time camping here and it was great. My wife and I camp state parks most often and this one is well maintained but a little dated. The convenience to the amazing park itself is well worth the price and simplicity of the campground. The waterfalls are only a 15-minute walk away and were beautiful. We also visited the lodge and enjoyed the breathtaking views from the back deck and terrace. The restaurant was very crowded but the food was good. A bit pricey but understandable for being the only game around.
NOTE: The 25% grade for a good 1/2 mile going up is a bear. Our F-250 handled it well, and we saw all sorts of motor coaches, trucks and SUV's at the top. It is doable, but if you have an older truck or a monster rig, be sure to take that into consideration.
I met 2-3 employees and a manager and they were all very courteous and helpful. The manager stated that the campground has plans for major roadwork coming soon and an upgrade to the bath house which is in desperate need of being updated, but I can say it was very clean the 2-nights we were there. Large, level sites with compacted gravel/dust surfaces. Everything on our site was in working order. We have already booked a site for this fall and the leaf season. $30 weeknights and $40 weekends. The campground was full the entire weekend. Book early. - WadeK

The scenery was great and we plan to return as soon as possible. The gift shops were very good also. We ate at the lodge with the great view and great food. There was nothing to complain about. - Russell Earl Kelly

This is a pretty place and the lake is beautiful as well, but all the of the nice sites are taken by permanent residents. They will put you in "outback " loop which is described perfectly by its name. Very hilly and not any where close to semi level, cable didn't work,, even after they "fixed" it, the 15 amp auxiliary plug was burned out (our RV power connector did work though.) The wifi did not work unless you were close to the office. The owner claimed it was because of the mountains yet it was only about 150 yards direct line of site to our spot. I went to all the open sites in this loop and no usable signal at any. The owner did eventually give me a password to one the other residents private wifi and it worked fine. I counted only 8 sites out 50 + that were available to non permanent residents -- of course they were all in this back loop. The lake and public areas plus the bath house is lovely. If you do deside to stay here bring PLENTY of leveling blocks and don't plan on sitting outside if being on a 20 dog slope bothers you.
We would not stay here again if we had to stay this back part of the campground. - N4cty

I stayed in this nature sanctuary of a park for all of April 2016. It is now one of my favorite campgrounds after 2.5 years of being full timers. The owner of the park and his family are friendly, attentive and overall really good people. Space! You have lots of room between you and other campers and to explore. The lake, around the lake and all the other natural areas are great for any nature lovers. There is this magical little wooded place within the park that is named, Ferngully. You really feel like you've stepped into another time in this space full of ferns, wildflowers and abundant green growth all around. There's a nice path the owners have built in this section. This park is situated in gorgeous rolling hill countryside of North Georgia. You have apple orchards all around you. Since you are in a hilly, mountainous area, you'll definitely want to have levelers. You're only 15 minutes away from the quaint, progressive town of Ellijay that has everything you could need(Wal-Mart, a fabulous Ingles grocery store, health food stores, a historic downtown full of boutiques and there's two Starbucks(one inside of the Ingles). - Cappy Jack

Camped here in October with my RV club. We came here for the Apple Festival. The park was very nice and the people running it were very friendly. Will come back here again. - Phillip D

We didn't have reservations and had to stay in an overflow lot, but we did have30 amp and water from a hose, and we're happy to have a place to stay. The park is mostly full timers, the owner or manager said they are full almost every night year round. It is older, but not bad, and very friendly. There aren't many campgrounds in this part of north GA, and it was easy on and off the main highway. There is a through road between the park and the overflow lot and the traffic zooms by, but it quieted down after dark and the highway noise wasn't too bad. - Ginny H

Poor interior roads, could use some gravel. Site had potholes.
Garbage in the fire pit. Grass is overgrown.
Overnight only. - Iceman567

This campground looks nothing like the photos on their WEB site. There are lot of long term residents. There is no cable TV available and using the TV Antenna you will receive about six (6) channels (3 of which are in Spanish).
The "recreation hall" is a dump. It has a TV with cable and a collection of furniture that looks like it was scavenged from the side of the road. - Crabman

Great campground with numerous lakefront campsites! Pros - level sites, fishing, water activities, great scenery Cons - Not full hookup. - RandyP

This was the opening weekend for the campground season. Park was in good shape. Area we were in had restrooms only, no bath house. Some site are smaller due to age of campground. Hosts are very friendly, and helpful. This is an old park built in 60's. First site we were reserved on could not get my camper on, even though it said it would accommodate. However hosts allowed us to move with no hassles. Good easy power hook up. Sites on the water are more expensive than inner sites. Weekend crowds book way ahead so you may or may not get a water site when lake is full. Over all good campground and location, as well as value. - RDM1980
May 2015 - $30.00
There are only 2 full hookup sites, 150 and 151, and I had 151 which is actually 2 sites. No wifi or cable, but other utilities worked fine. Site is in the trees, so no satellite reception and limited antenna reception. Park is spectacular located on Lake Alatoona and is about 10 miles from Canton. There is a pre-registration process, but it is worthless. I still had to go through the entire regular government check in process when I arrived. - ramblin' vagabonds

Nice little park we have stayed out several times. Few facilities/amenities but we are self contained and don't need them. Nice people. Very dog friendly with pet stations everywhere. Great landscaping and the lakes are beautiful. Sites on the hill are wooded and large. Getting Satellite is challenge but we were able to do it on site 16. Could not do it on another stay on site 11. If you don't need sewer, stay down by the lake and pull in head first (if in a motorhome). You'll probably need an extension cord and those for 50 amp are expensive but the view will be great. 5'ers can back in and be all set. Lots of swings surround the lake and at night, it's all lit up. There is a nature trail that goes clear around the lake on the left. Good fishing if you like to fish. Cash or check only. - RollinHome

We stayed 8 nights. Paid $280 or $35/night - no addl tax or fees. **Note - they only accept cash or checks** Reservations must be made by telephone but I always found the phones were answered promptly and the staff to be capable and friendly. No up front money is collected - just pay at check-in. We called (on day of) to see if we could arrive one day early. Office staff was friendly and accommodating and able to get us in (although we had to change sites after the first night). Easy on/off the freeway. Tip - when on Atlanta Hwy, the turn to the campground is where you see a sign "Mr. Fix". There is a campground sign but, for us, the "Mr. Fix" sign was easier to see. Check in was easy and efficient. There is plenty of room to park in front of the office and disconnect/reconnect the toad. We stayed on the plateau area (sites 41-51) in order to have 50 amp/water/sewer. The plateau is gravel and can be a little dusty if it's dry and a car drives by or a strong wind blows. On the other hand, we had a decent amount of rain one day/night and did not see any water pooling. The lakes are pretty and there is a small trail which allows you to walk around the perimeter of one lake (great for dog walking too). Overall park is clean although we did find (and dispose of) numerous cigarette butts in our site (gross!). Neighbors were pleasant. Very quiet day and night. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Open sky for DirecTV signal. Verizon cell and Mifi worked well. CG wifi was about as good as it gets working well nearly 100% of the time. I did not see any recycling. If you are a motorhome and if you don't need sewer and if you have a good amount of hose length, I suggest pulling nose-in to the lakefront sites 71-74 & 80-90. That way you'll have a wonderful view of the lake through your windshield. - GottaGoNow

Nice people, well maintained, check or cash only, full hook-ups, Sprint cell good, Satellite locked easily. Most water front sites do not have sewer. The electrical box on our site was about 10" above the ground, our slide went over it easily - very innovative! Some might call our site, the big gravel lot, but the beauty was the drainage when it rains and parking for our MDT. Plenty of room to back in. We will come back! - Born2RV

Wow, one of those campgrounds you hate to leave. The best COE campground we have found and the area and view were wonderful. Decent OTA tv and Verizon 4G. Back-in site with concrete pad and huge deck, the camphost said we would love the site and he was correct. The turns and slopes getting into the park are a little bit of a challenge, but it is worth it. We would definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity and hated to leave. - jtl2

Beautiful park with playgrounds for kids and a boat ramp and picnic area on the lake. Sites are quite large with concrete patios and crushed rock tent pads. Many sites have good views of lake, and there are some premium sites with wooden decks. Park is 9 miles from Ellijay, and it is only a few more miles to several apple orchards. - SunnyTravelers
May 2018 - $38.00
Great park with large sites that are mostly right down by the water. No sewer though and stays are limited to 14 days. They do have a dump station so be ready to move your rig to dump every few days, or bring your waste water tote. Hard to get satellite from most sites. - RollinHome

This is our favorite COE camp on Lake Lanier, Ga. we always have a good experience. Camp is clean and well kept. Sites are good-sized and all have table, fire ring, lantern hook. Most sites are very level. There are restaurants, shopping, grocery stores within easy driving distance. Park is conveniently located. Bathhouses, restrooms are clean. - Dodie83

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 stayed here one night out of necessity. The camp is very hard to find, especially after dark. We pulled in and there was no one about so we just selected a site. This appears to have been a nice camp ground at some point in the past but it has gone to seed. Water, sewer and electric worked but sites are uneven and over grown. Interior roads are unpaved, rutted and muddy after a rain. The camp is in desperate need of a major rework of its infrastructure. It struck us as a jewel in the "very rough." There are lots of permanent units on site and some that appear to be abandoned. We were charged $30 cash; not credit cards taken. This camp ground will do in a pinch but we cannot recommend it as a destination. - User3310

Maybe it's the wrong time of year. It was muddy and filthy. Dog poo all over the place and dirty diapers in the fire pit. No internet and my phone only worked part time. It was quiet. That is the only positive I can think of. We will not stay there again. - chiniakbay

This CG is a bit out of the way but we have family here and it was the closest CG to them. The road leading in is narrow. If you have a big rig, watch out for anyone speeding towards you. The interior roads of the CG are packed dirt and extremely bumpy. Hold on! Some advice, call ahead. We usually do, but at this time of the year we knew it wouldn't be full and didn't bother to call. As expected, there was plenty of space, but call because this property is gated. At the gate you are instructed to use the phone above the keypad to call. The phone DOESN'T WORK! The other option was to call the number listed there. A note ...Verizon does not have coverage here. Thankfully we had another cell phone, a cheap Walmart phone, and it worked. The woman at check in was very nice, the CG accepts PA, we paid $16.50. All the sites are grass. Hook ups were fine. No cable, the free wifi was poor. The restrooms/showers are huge and clean. - hunkahunka

The campground was very clean, many private sites, hosts very friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning to Doll Mountain.
This campground is on Carter's Lake but many of the sites are very shady and private but you can hardly see the lake. But, the trees are beautiful and the campground is quiet. Our site was too close to the entrance for my comfort and had much thru traffic. Next time we'll choose a site farther from the entrance. We had a very enjoyable stay and will return. - AnnieB

One of our favorite N. Georgia campgrounds. The loop we are in is more open and several sites are suitable for satellite reception. There is another RV loop that overlooks Lake Carter too but is heavily treed and satellite reception will not be possible. Lots of other small sites along the main road suitable for pop-ups and tents. - SunnyTravelers

The Happy Traveler's report of June 2016 is comprehensive and accurate. Although, I would like to add - sites 21, 22 and 25 are built in "reverse", so the "awning side" of many campers are facing away from the water and the view. Be aware of this when you are booking. There may be others that I didn't notice. The primitive tent sites are very nice - isolated and private. Verizon coverage is good - 3 or 4 bars out of 5. Sites 29, 30 and 31 have a trail to the water and a small beach for launching a kayak or canoe. Be careful on the trails, there is a lot of poison ivy and CHIGGERS! This CG is very similar in appearance and build to Woodring CG on the other end of Carter Lake. - Bama Camper
