15 Parks near Norcross, Georgia

Just an overnight stop for us. We arrived when the Atlanta area was about to get hit with an ice storm so the park had been rained on that day, then overnight, everything froze. It's easy in and out from the interstate. And it's close to the 285 interchange. We had a full hookup pull thru that easily fit our 40' with tow near the front. It wasn't full that night with transients but the rest of the park was packed close. Check in was easy but the guy who checked us in was not really too engaging that day. Overall, the price is reasonable and it''s easy to find in a good location for a stop so I'd likely stay here again. - Flippitti

I agree with what others have said. Of the approx. 150 sites, there are about 30 set aside for short termers (14 days or less); the rest are permanent or very long term stays. Nothing really special about the park except for the location, and it's easy to get around within the park. I would stay again if I was passing through again. - cherylbrv

We had a short stay of 3 nights. Easy access, lots of speed bumps which kept park traffic slow. Grassy areas on perimeter to walk dog and baggies and cans were posted for picking up after your dog. For the size of the park it was relatively quiet. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again if needed. - witchey1

Run down park with no amenities. We were there in the summer and the pool (which is already small) was closed. Sites are super narrow; we were afraid we would slide off the gravel! And it was not at all level. We have automatic jacks but had to use blocks, so that our wheels were not off the ground. Ugh. It's quiet enough; that is about the only positive I have here. But the folks who run it are nuts when it comes to dogs - actually stopped and harassed us to see if we had a bag with us when walking our dog! - Georgia family campers

This is a very large and spread out mobile home park - which made for some very nice walks (even though the asphalt roads were in bad shape, it is better than walking on gravel). Our spot was not fancy, a crumbling but usable patio w picnic table. This was a very spacious site - plenty of room, lots of grass and a bit of landscaping. A nice mix of trees and open areas throughout the huge park. We were close to the laundry room, so I did use it. The pool was closed. We were relatively close to the front of the park, but were not bothered at all by the highway noise. Very friendly staff. We would stay here again. P.S. We are not sure if they had restrooms ... did not need them anyway. - Deb and Chris

This is a very nice, well maintained and quiet park. It is a mobile home and RV park, with mobile homes and RV site co-mingling. The sites are nice and wide, there is well established grass and trees, but no trees are in the way of your parking. Every site also has a concrete pad for a picnic table, lawn chairs or whatever you like. There is also a swimming pool to enjoy. There are very few RV parks in the Atlanta area, but this is a nice one. I highly recommend this park. - Freedom73

Good sites, clean. Stayed 3 days and visited Snow Mountain. Site was easy to back into and not too close to the sites beside us. - LaDon West

Stone Mountain Campground was very nice. I liked being close to the general store, playground, and grassy play area for kids. If you don't like noise during daytime hours don't stay on this loop. Lots of kids playing outside. The site was flat which made it easy to set up. The other loops are very,very hilly and unlevel. The only negative is the wifi speed or better terms lack of. Campground is about 30 minutes from Atlanta. Call ahead for directions to campground. Do not follow gps unless you want to haul your rv or tt through neighborhoods in Stone Mountain. - 5bedos

Beautiful park. One of the nicest we have stayed in. Very organized, we had to register via late checking and they had put the length of the sites on the registration sheet. Small detail, but saves any late night surprises especially when having to set up in the dark. The park was not crowded because it was off season. We needed a quick overnight in the Atlanta area, but now vow to return. We stayed in the purple loop right beside a very nice playground. Bring cash if you are utilizing the after hours check in. - AndeR

I stayed here in a premium site for 2.5 years while working in Alpharetta. Although my site had lots of trees, I was able to use my Winegard Walk Out for DTV with no problem year round. The reason the water hook ups are in the ground is so they work in the winter - it can get down in the single digits and it is mandatory that you have a properly heated and insulated water hookup from Oct - Mar. The staff are great. Even when we lost power (entire campground) during an ice storm, it was restored the next morning. Very safe park and plenty of places within easy access for dining, shopping, etc. Highly recommend this park. - GTJohn

Twin Lakes is about 10 minutes north of Alpharetta so it's in a convenient location for visiting that area (we were there to visit friends). There's a great supermarket (Ingles) just a mile or so away. Access to the park is down a narrow local road but it's not far so wasn't a major issue. The park itself is in a pretty, scenic location, but the sites themselves are problematic. If you're able to get a premium site (we weren't, they were all taken, even though we made our reservation over a month in advance), you'll have a huge wooded site, possibly shared with another RV, tiered along a very steep hill. The standard sites, only $5 cheaper, are tightly packed in a dead-end gravel parking lot (a trailer that came in after us spent 15 minutes making a 20-point turn trying to get backed into their site at the end of the lot). The other odd thing about our lot was that the water spigot was embedded in the ground, rather than on a post, making it difficult (and wet and muddy) to hook up the water. We paid $30/night, and the rate goes up to $35 for 2017, no credit cards accepted. The WiFi worked decently well when we could get connected, but there were plenty of times it refused to connect. Apart from the disappointment of the site, the area is pretty and quiet, and there's a short loop trail around one of the lakes which we walked our dog on daily (it requires some rock-hopping over a stream). Overall it's a decent home base for a local visit but if we return it'll be just for a few days to visit friends again (unless a premium site is available, in which case we might stay a little longer). - LifeRebooted

Really good Campground 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta and 10 minutes from Lake Lanier. It is close to the highway but not so close that traffic is audible. Very quiet and dark at night. The lakes (really just big ponds) are attractive and a walking path bisects them and continues on around the back of the property. Premium sites are level but on a very steep hill that was challenging to enter/exit some of the sites due to the slope and narrow entry. I wouldn't want to try getting a 45 footer in some of these (others would be fine). Once in, the premium sites are huge and level. Most would easily accommodate two or even 3 RV and tow car. Due to the slope of the hill, your uphill neighbor will look right into your windows when they sit outside. Our 50amp power did not work, the campground had it fixed (old wiring missing a second ground) in less than 3 hours. Premium sites will almost certainly have no satellite access due to trees. Sites along the lake will have satellite but are closer together and have water and power but no sewer. Interior roads are paved but a little rough in spots. No bathrooms or laundry as far as we could tell. Turning out of the campground onto the main road can be tricky with traffic. Grocery stores, food, fuel, and plenty of shopping (Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy) nearby. Cash or check only. We extended our stay because we enjoyed it so much. Reservations are on the honor system since they only accept cash; no real penalty for no shows. We had to move spots when we extended due to our spot being "booked" but nobody ever showed up at it. Office staff are nice and helpful. Price is extremely fair for the campground. For an extra $5 the premium sites are a bargain as they are far larger than the lakeside sites and have full hookups (as long as you don't mind the hill and the lack of satellite). I would definitely stay here again. - Bryanmsi

Sites 12 thru 25 are the most scenic and are the ones being reviewed. They are on a peninsula overlooking the lake. All sites have tall pines offering shade and sun. The parking pads are paved and level but narrow. They also have picnic tables that sit on a concrete pad and offer a fire ring as well as a BBQ grill. The only draw back to many of the sites is the ground drops off steeply from the parking pads making exit/entry to your camper difficult. We were in site #20 and to get to the first step of our camper was about 20 inches. If it were not for this I would have given the sites a rating of 10. - Poe Dog

Overall the stay was good, except for the rude and condescending behaviour to multiple people. I ended up hearing about other people having similar issues while on site. 30amp service worked, but my surge protector showed that the polarity was reversed. Might be an issue. There is one dump site. Worked well, except for it being a monsoon. Water really collect in the dump area and it's hard to keep it all stable while trying to unload. Our spot was great with a gorgeous view of the lake, near a beach where we were able to beach our boat. Really close to Atlanta and great for a weekend get away. Lady doing check in just needs an attitude adjustment. - manderson2228

Staff was wonderful. Campsites are paved. Picnic area for sitting were made of a compacted sand. It is large and included grill, steel circle fire ring and a lantern poll. There is a private boat dock for loading and unloading and boat ramp for campers only. Look forward to next visit. - NMandKI

When you come through the gates it is mesmerizing. Absolutely beautiful resort. Arriving at the campground I was totally surprised that it was part of the same resort. Roads were terrible at best. Campsites were clean and utilities worked except for the sewer hookup. Most of the sewer hookups are not usable. Beautiful views of the lake. Restrooms and showers worked but could use upgrades. Shower stalls had broken tiles and no lighting in the showers. - F35mech

The actual physical area of this campground is gorgeous -Lake Lanier is beautiful, and strolling around is lovely. There are a lot of deer and birds. However, our 36' motorhome had a hard time making it to site 78, on the narrow little road. Once there, there is no sewer in the park at all, and the paved pad was--while supposedly long enough for our rig--nowhere level enough to get to level. Once we managed "close enough," our steps were 10" off the ground -and yes, the wife fell down them during our stay once, despite being careful. We were here camping with a group, so didn't have much choice. The bathrooms were lovely, but really far away from the loop we were camping in, so necessitated a drive in the car. They could do a lot with this place, and we were told there were plans for a rehab to happen over the winter. - tigs

It disheartening that not much has changed at this campground since the last posting on this website almost a year ago. I had driven through this campground previously on trips to the water park and promised my self that I will never camp here. Unfortunately I had to change my decision because I planned to use the site to take my children to the water park and also witness the July 4th fireworks display at the beach area. So I thought I knew what to expect. Like the last two posts mentioned, the sites are not level at all. In fact, my RV experienced leakage because we couldn't secure a perfect level even though we went to town to obtain more planks to level the RV. The roads are not only narrow but really need major repairs because pots holes abound. It could be argued that the restrooms are not clean because they need urgent make over. Several of the camp sites don't make sense why they should be located where they are. If consideration was given, there should have been fewer sites to make room for roads or nature. My concern for this campground stems from the fact that the resort boasts a huge potential with so many fun activities around the campground. This site should be updated to attract more campers, especially those with children. - Helkken

We are in a 37' fifth wheel. The roads are bad. The sites are worse. In some cases dangerous. Sites are on a steep side hill but very narrow. Ours is over 5" out of level across the site. I'm up on two planks and still not level.
Steps on the site to access the picnic table are so rotten that they are clearly a danger.
Because there are so few Rv parks near Atlanta they are able to get away with very little maintenance.
If you are in a tent or a pop up or a 24' travel trailer you may be ok.
But big rigs and 5th wheels should think two or three times before trying this place. - GSchlecht

Excellent SP campground with most sites ON the water or within site - each is well spaced with most pull-thru type and separate patio and flat sitting or tent area.
RV sites have 50a and Water, shade, feet from the water,and a nice bath house close by. - hturnerfamily

My main reason for this review is regarding the environment, not the amenities around the lake, etc. We registered for 3 nights and left after 1. We were assigned to Group Events location (I have no idea why) which overlooks the lake through acres of woods and the sites are long and narrow with drop offs on both sides. No where to walk, no where to place rug or chairs, impossible to use RV steps because when opened they hung over a ridge (side of our site). Maneuvering thru the woods and narrow winding roads was difficult at best. We even clipped a tree and dented our bumper. No one guided us to our location which was not easy to find originally. Then boaters and campers began filling the small cul-de-sac like area in Group EVents. One trailer and 10 cars and boats spent the night partying, loud music, disco lights, drinking etc. The entry gates are left open all night long. Anyone can come and go. There is no security and it is Pitch Black outside. The fire ring was set closer to our rig than theirs and the smoke infiltrated our rig all night. We hesitated to say anything to them ... as we are seniors traveling for enjoyment...and they are a large group of drinking young adults. Not in this day and age! We were up all night and packed up and left first thing in the a.m. Going to ask for our money back. Also - no sewer, unkempt grounds, broken site pad, uneven and dangerous for children. After climbing the mountains and enjoying RV camps all around VA for a month this was a horrible end to our journey. Up until Shoal Creek we have '0' issues at any RV campground. Shame on Lake Lanier and the Corps of Engineers to allow this to be happening at this beautiful location. - HitchedUpWilsons

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

I agree with the other camper who said not to bother. We have camped at several military campgrounds and have always had a good experience. This is an exception to those other campgrounds. First we called the office number numerous times on different days and got a recording, left messages for call back and nothing. 3 hours before we arrived we called the office# and finally a woman answered and said there were 5 open sites. We arrived to find one site taped off with yellow caution tape, another site with a van parked off to the side in the woods but no vehicle on the pad. We pulled out and parked in parking area in front of the office hut and husband called base security to ask if it was OK to dry camp for the night. He was told to go to a building and check in which he did but guy in office had no idea why he was told that! Husband came back and drove back into campground to look at the site where van was parked and another camper told him the owner takes his rig out and is gone for days meaning site is not paid for but discourages someone from using it. We paid and used the site for the night. The remaining sites were occupied by long term people but not all workers. 1 retiree had been there since October so 2 week rule not in-forced. Another site had a 35' motorhome, 30' tow trailer, the truck to haul the trailer and 3 cars. Another site had a portable garage frame with tarp setup in front of the trailer. I would dry camp in a Walmart parking lot before returning here. - petpeople

Nice park with several sites available but the bathrooms, specifically the men's was atrocious. One toilet was severely messed up and wasn't cleaned for two days! The women's was fine and I had no problem. A few sites were 50' long and nicely separated from your neighbor. Quiet and nice park. There is a little bar that is busy during the week. Our neighbor, Jeff, who is responsible in some fashion there, was extremely helpful when we were concerned about getting to the dump station in the morning - someone was parked there and he made sure they moved. The biggest issue we had was on our departure GATE 2 (which is the only RV accessible gate) is closed on the weekends, which we did not know!! Luckily for us the security spotted us heading for the exit and flagged us down to wait while he brought someone up to open up the gate for us. So it all worked out fine, but if you're planning on arriving or leaving on the weekend you should call first to find out the proper procedure. We camped here in a motorhome. - Bill & Debby's Wild Ride

Civilians and Reserve military personnel working on the base and long term (years) permanent residents prevent transient overnight or short term stops. Before taking the time to stop, call the MWR number and ask if there are sites available. Chances are slim to none an open site will be available. The CG does not take reservations. We wasted a lot of time coming off the interstate to the CG only to find civilians working on the base were occupying nearly all sites and that no sites were available. - CRICKEYDOG770

First of all, it is really difficult to give a bad review to a park when the staff is so nice. Well, this is the case here. The staff both on the phone and in person were exceptional, very nice and accommodating. Unfortunately, the pleasantries stop there. I arrived just after the office closed and picked up my packet from the front door. I was immediately taken aback by the very narrow bumpy roads, uneven with holes throughout. I was hoping that things would get better, they didn't. I made it to my site VERY slowly as cars were protruding onto the road, my 45' rig was not happy. Our space was narrow and nowhere big enough for our rig, but the office was closed and no one answered the emergency phone provided at the office. With my rig backing up within a foot of the rig in back of me, and still protruding onto the road we made it work. The park is old and looks to have 95% full timers, very tight spaces, not a place to sit out and relax. For a lot of reasons, this is not a big rig friendly park, stay away. Although they have 50 amp service, I tripped the circuit breakers 4 times with minimal equipment running, twice in the middle of the night while sleeping. There are two levels, below and up top. We stayed up top. There is NO WAY a rig over 30' can get down to the second level. I would only stay here if you had absolutely no other choice. I would NOT stay there again. - Damon campers

The park is run down and needs the roads repaired. If you have a large RV it would be better to find a larger park. If you must be in the area, there are not many options. The rotund man behind the desk gave the impression he was being put out by checking me in. Lots were very close and mostly shady. Sites were gravel and featured a picnic table. - Dex

We've stayed in better. We've stayed in much worse. An urban, older design, live in park with sites available for those of us that need a couple of nights when we travel this area. Sites are tight but our 40 ft fiver got in with room to park our truck off the road. Other sites not so much as sit is just big enough to handle living unit, with travel vehicles parked in front, making the travel road tight. Go slow...large speed bumps. Friendly owner at check in. We don't use the public facilities so can't comment on washrooms/showers. Relatively quiet for an urban area. Loudest sounds were aircraft from Dobbins Air Field coming and going now and then...but that the sound of freedom! Full hook up worked fine. No problem choosing to return again if in this area. - Brujomar
