This is a beautiful spacious campground and park. Sites are private, have adequate space for unit and car, and have nice picnic space with table and fire ring. Very well spaced. Although it is somewhat of a drive to get to the remote area of the park, it is well worth the drive! Park staff was extremely nice too! We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautifully designed and very well maintained park about 35 minutes from downtown Newnan. Very secluded park. Lovely area. Park seems brand new. The ranger who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. The campground is clean and quiet. This is first come first serve even with reservations, but lightly used and all sites pretty similar. 40 foot sites, spacious, wooded area. No view of any water feature though. The river is a walk through the woods. There is a lot of hiking, biking, canoeing available. A quiet park--the type of place that gives a woods experience, not a big park type experience. A couple or a family with older/active kids might enjoy more than a family with small kids. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The sites were extremely spacious and the park has lots of activities including a river, bike trails, and hiking trails. The camp host was very helpful and greeted us upon arrival and it was very quiet and peaceful while we were here. My only issue was absolutely no AT&T service (I had 2 bars of Verizon), but aside from that it was a nice place to stay and the 25% military/veteran discount was awesome. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Atlanta is an hour away, and we used the campground as a jumping off point to see many of The Walking Dead filming locations.

Gave this little campground a shot and loved it! It's about 15 miles from Newnan which is the closest town and there's only 2 gas stations in between so stock up. We stayed in 102 and liked the view and proximity to bathrooms and playground. Slightly uneven pad, but clean and new. All facilities are new so clean and nice as you'd expect. Hiking was good. Try the trails near the entrance. Liked them a little more than the river trail. Sprint cell service was 2 bars 3G. Try it out, you'll love it. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here in Campground 1 for a long weekend. Campground 1 is for RVs, although tents are allowed also; and Campground 2 is for tents. Sites in Campground 1 are very spacious. We were on Site 111 and we could have parked two 36' fifth wheels on the site. Our site was private with trees on three sides. Campground was quiet, even when mostly full. Roads are paved, but sites are gravel with large gravel area for tables, fire ring, and lantern pole. Grass was mowed and site was level. 50 amp electrical service, water, but no cable. Very friendly rangers and hosts. Nice visitor center. No cell service, but adequate TV reception. Dump station was good and included hose for flushing tanks.

This park is for those of us who enjoy the outdoors, but not for those who want to eat at restaurants or go shopping, since it is several miles out. There are miles of hiking trails with varying terrain and this kept us busy for the days we were there. But beware of ticks on the trails. Kayaking is also an option since the park is on the river. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this campground for "camping." We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is relatively new (about 3 years old). It is very pretty, though not much to do unless you are into hiking, biking, or doing something with the river. It's very quiet. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a gorgeous park, much above the quality of most state parks. Even the parking lot in front of the Visitor's Center has expensive, detailed paving. Campground #1, where we stayed is only a couple of years old. Although the sites are nominally gravel, it is very tightly packed, and quite different from typical gravel. We would stay here for an extended period. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great park, though the state access roads from the highway are narrow with no shoulder. The park has only been opened three years and shows it. All sites are level with a solid gravel bed. The areas around each site have a good gravel cover which is important to prevent orange footprints in the RV from the red clay in the area. Nice hiking trails throughout the park. Wi-Fi is available at registration and a weak cell phone signal (Sprint network) was available. Would be happy to stay again. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This camp ground is brand new. The road, the facilities, everything is new. This camp ground is way back in the woods. Closest gas station is 6 miles away. Use the directions from the camp ground website to get there. It was not in our GPS yet. No sites on the river. No shaded sites because the camp ground is new. There are some walk in tent sites that are shaded. This will be a great camp ground in the near future once the trees have grown. There are a lot of hiking trails and the Chattahoochee is down at the end of the road with a large picnic area and playground. We saw a lot of animals: Turkey, snakes, deer, and armadillo. We probably will go past this camp ground next time and stay on Lake West Point in LaGrange, GA. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I think it would be hard to rate this SP anything less than a 9 or 10. A new SP, sites are level, clean and well laid out. Picnic table, fire ring, lamp post, water & electric. The bathhouse is very nice and even has laundry facilities. Wi-Fi would be nice be we are camping so can't complain too much. I had good enough cell signal to hotspot our phone for internet. As a camping destination, you cannot go wrong here and should be at the top of your list. Note: $5 park fee in addition to camping fee.

Beautiful well laid out campground. Excellent check-in staff. Nightly rate is discounted. Very, very deep back in sites that are very definitely big rig friendly. Pull thru's have a sharp angle of attack and may pose problems for longer rigs entering and exiting the pull thru site. Only reason I didn't rate the CG a 10 is there are no sewer hookups, cable, or wi-fi. As state parks go, it's beautiful and will be even more so as the area recovers from the construction. A definite diamond in the rough well worth a visit. You won't be disappointed. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is going to be a very nice park someday, but it still has a way to go. Since it just opened in 2011 and it's been a dry fall, there is a lot of grass seed covered dirt in the campground and elsewhere. The campground has very few trees and these are spindly small pines. The campground sites are nice and new, very level, new tables and new restrooms. There is a nice trail along the river - 5 miles one way - in and out, and one other short trail. None of the connecting trails are finished yet. There are also very nice playgrounds for the kids. There is a boat ramp / canoe put in, but no vendors are running rentals or shuttle services yet that we could see. The rangers and volunteer staff were very nice. Most of the people in the park seemed to be fairly local to Newnan and came out to watch football - some were disappointed the cable wasn't working yet. We had a nice time but we probably won't come back for a few years until they finish the trails and get some more landscaping done. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This state park just opened the first of July. It is in a beautiful area and is set up very nice! Most RV sites are flat with shade. Gravel parking area with gravel table/hanging out area. We didn't see the river tent area but everyone had canoes. Excellent stopover on our vacation. Use their directions otherwise its a bit of a drive! Highly recommend it but stay a couple of days.

This is a brand new state park. It was new to us to camp in a site that had never had a fire made in the pit. All the sites were spacious and the vast majority would handle most rigs. There is still construction going on and mother nature has a lot of filling in to do, but the park will be nice. If you absolutely need shade this will not be your park for the next few years in the summer time. Fall and Spring I am sure will be beautiful. Good canoeing opportunity here as well. We will return to camp here often. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.
