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

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

WARNING: entrance to this SP campground can be extremely taxing on larger campers and motorhomes - posted 25% incline for a mile or more from the registration office. There is also a VERY tight turn at a STEEP incline within the campground...
50a and water at each of the only 24 gravel, but lengthy sites...most are built up from the side of the mountain. - hturnerfamily

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

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

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

Lovely place to stay! We had 50 AMP, water, but no sewer. There is a dump station on site. Each overnight campsite has an area that is cleared out and contains small pebbles, where the grill, concrete picnic table, and fire ring is located. It was like a patio because there was adequate space to site around. We cannot say enough about the beauty of this park, which is along Lake Allatoona. It offers a beach area which has white sand, and a playground for children. Also contains a separate section for day campers. Nice areas for long walks and bicycle rides. Would recommend this park highly! - Ferdy

Very nice, clean and quiet park; doggy stands placed throughout park. Picnic table and Wi-Fi but we connected our own cable. Landscape well maintained and staff is very friendly. Nice lake too and park is nearby to walk your pet. Propane is on premise and so is trash. We would stay here again! - rbybenj

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

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

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

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
