14 RV Parks near Norcross, Georgia
Sep 2017 - $35.00
Very basic park, mainly full time residents. Park located close to i-85, few miles from i-285 and close to Atlanta. Located in a commercial area with some housing nearby. Called in before arriving and we were told to just pick a transient site as we were arriving after the office closed. Staff answering phone was friendly. We followed GPS and it took us to the park. Stopped at office, picked up park map. No other instructions. Followed yellow arrows to transient area. We drove past all the sites, and only one was open, so we came around again, and took that site. Our site was dirt/sand base, narrow long pull thru, full hook up. There was a tree next to us, but were able to get satellite. The site next to us had a reserved cone, and the RVer came in right after us. He told us they reserved it for him. There were no other sites open, and we watched an RV come in later, and leave because there wasn't any open sites. We only noticed one other overnighter, as the rest of the limited stay spots seem to be full timers. If you call, tell them to assign you a site to reserve. If we came a little later, we would have not been able to stay. There are two electric hook up sites out front the office, but those are on a slight hill and have a sign for registration. Sites are close together, the other side of our site was packed with cars. Little green space to walk dogs. We were there on a weeknight, therefore quiet evening. Noise starts around 6 in the morning when people are leaving for work. Basic rate is $35.00, put payment in envelope, drop in rent slot at office. This worked for a quick overnight stay close to Atlanta highways but not for extended stay. - KKColorado

My rating is based on an overnight stay. Easy on/off on I-85. We arrived on a Sunday when they are closed. We were told to take any open spot on the right. We took site 101 which was level and quite long. We had no one on either side but the sites are close together. The office doesn't open until 9:00 a.m. So we placed our payment in an envelope and deposited in a slot by the office. The power was fine but water pressure a little low. Most of this park appears to be full timers and around 6:30 a.m. The departing traffic in the park was heavy. Overall, recommended for a quick overnight stay northeast of Atlanta! - Rd yacht

This park is right off the highway, which is good for access. We couldn't hear the traffic from our site, but many sites are close and probably can. The rest rooms are just "OK". Not great. We chose not to use the showers because they were a little grimy. They were in the process of putting in combination locks, but when we were there, the facilities were closed from 8PM to 8AM, which is very inconvenient. The handicap accessible bathroom was open at night, but it was out of order. Most of the sites are long term rentals and not very well kept up. The short term sites are jammed very close together. We were just passing through, so it was OK for us, but I wouldn't recommend a longer stay. - JJ1951

Park needs updating. Roads are paved but rough. Pool is open May to Sept. we had a pull thru site and it was level but I saw other spots that weren't. Concrete patios no picnic table at our site. Roomy spots. We didn't have to unhook the tow. Stayed one night passing thru. Food, gas, etc near by. We walked to a gas station to pick up a couple things. Plenty of grassy areas for walking the dog. Tennis court in bad shape. We in the back so it was quiet. - Patricia57

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

Sites were fairly level, wifi speed was very slow or non existent. We stayed with a group but didn't think the price was worth the sites. - Traveler23

This review could be way over the word limit due to the bad taste in our mouths, but I'll keep it short as I can. We really wanted to enjoy our stay at this park. We booked for 4 nights and were looking forward to a nice relaxing vacation. The location of this campground is fantastic. In the hills of Georgia and wrapped around the side of a nice peaceful lake. There are lots of little things to see inside the park and lots of good hiking. It's a very large campground with 400+ sites, but each area was about the same as any other campground so it did not feel especially large unless you go from one end to the other.
To sum up the very long list of things that are NOT good about this campground: *Poorly, dangerously maintained roads. *Some sites that are so unlevel that nothing short of a lumberyard could level your trailer. *Office staff that have no clue what they are doing here. *Old, poorly cleaned wash houses. *Extra $15 fee to "park." *Sewage hookup on site that could not handle the flow of a normal tank dump, which lead to a disgusting overflow problem. *Sites crammed up against one another.
Anyway, we won't be going back. - ToddAndMarge

This is a great place to stay while playing in Stone Mountain Park and probably a good base for exploring Atlanta, although we did not leave the park during our stay. The roads are crumbling and need to be resurfaced, it small ways the RV Park shows a tight state budget. - WNC Traveler

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

Spaces on lake do not have three point hook ups and are very close to each other. - Waster

This was a really great park for a 2 night stay. We stayed Fri-Sun and had a great time. The sites were nicely laid out with some decent privacy between them. Each had water and power (50amp) and a picnic table with a fire ring. They sold firewood on site. The campground is right on a lake which was beautiful and very serene. There were some boats on the lake (Lake Lanier is extremely popular for boaters) but we did not notice any extra noise. The staff were all very nice. The dump station would be my only "ding" on this park as getting in requires some tight turns. Also, the park gates close at 10:30 so you have to be in or you get locked out. - clink-182

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

The park was very run down. Sites were in need of work. Park is very old. We had camped here approximately 20 years back with the kids. Went back to see about planning a holiday stay. They have spent a lot of money on the water park but none on the campground. Very disappointed. One night stay and left. - RDM1980

A few years ago, before the current management team took over this campground, I considered this campground to be my favorite in NE Georgia. I have a new travel trailer now and drove to Blue Ridge Campground (Lake Lanier Islands) with a friend to scope the campground out again with the anticipation of camping there this week. WELL! I was shocked at the condition of the campground! There were large pot holes in the roads, large enough that I had to steer around them. I saw campsites that were so overgrown with vegetation you would no longer be able to back your travel trailer into them. I found one site I initially considered staying at, however the grill was broken and unusable and it looked as though the site had a sewer connection, but the pipe was full of a "liquid". There was one, lone, older travel trailer parked in one of the sites and it looked like it was abandoned as well. I drove back to the guard house and asked the lady when the campground would be open. To my surprise, she said "Its open now!" I asked her if they were planning on making repairs and she said "Not as far as I know". Honestly, the place looks abandoned. And for $42 a night, there are other, much better maintained campgrounds in the area, at less money! - Travelforlife2015

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 front office was very nice when we checked in. The first site we were given we could not fit in because of our slides but the easily moved us. But the park lacks pride of ownership. There is trash everywhere. There was even a pile of blankets and dishes like a bum was living in the woods next to our site. The bathroom toilets would not flush and the bathrooms looked like they have not been cleaned in a while. The grill was broken off its pole and sitting on the ground. We walked down to the dock and it was very sketchy/shaky and did not seem very stable. Very disappointed in the campground. We have been to several campgrounds this summer and this was by far the worst. - Vicki M

We arrived at this location with our grandchild. After 9:00 pm the site beside us had their music so loud that we couldn't enjoy our stay. Not only were they drunk, they also were listening to derogatory music cranked up to the point that we could not enjoy our stay. We notified the camp authorities and they didn't do a thing to reduce the noise. - Doug Siegel

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

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

Disclaimer: I was in town for a family gathering and wanted to check out this park out so I stopped by. My first stop was the MWR office. The excellent value rating is the price. There are a lot of services available at this office, unfortunately, caring that there was an RV park on-site wasn't one of them. The young lady answered my questions but couldn't provide a map or brochure for the park. She also wouldn't take reservations either...call first before coming here! I got directions to the park and headed out. There is a sign at the entrance for new arrivals. Step 1, pick a spot. Step 2 check in at the office. Too bad there aren't any empty spots. One possible spot had somebody's car in it. Very heavy tree cover throughout. The road is narrow and trees are close. Every occupied spot had evidence of long-term occupation; semi-permanent steps, PVC poo pipes, fences and in one case a lawn! Yep, a honest-to-goodness real grass lawn! To his credit he had a sign for the "FAMCAMP spot of the month"!! I think that since this is a reserve base the rules may be different as far as long term/permanent party occupation of the FAMCAMP. I don't think we'll stop here. Good Luck! - CGRetired

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

Calling this a resort is like calling a beat up old Caddy a luxury car. It's an old park with minimal upgrades. It's tight and the speed bumps bear the scars of many landing pad scrapes. The sites are so close that there's no parking for a vehicle other than on the street, which makes it even worse getting in and out. Lot of permanent residents, with junk outside. The sites are crumbling blacktop for a pad, not level.
The biggest problem we had was with the manager on duty when we arrived. After check in we were assigned a site. With cars in the street I had to jack a 40' 5th wheel around a car, and miss an old motor home that was just over the edge of the street on the other side. It was tight, but we managed to get in. When I plugged in the EMS and flipped the breaker it immediately tripped, then showed no voltage. I tried it two more times then went to the office. The manager who checked me in acted like it was big imposition to even come out, telling me and everyone else in earshot about how he didn't want to do this and he didn't want to mess with this crap. When he couldn't get a reading on the breaker he then wanted me to plug in my RV. Politely told him I would plug in my EMS, but not RV on a plug that had already shown a problem. Apparently that really made him mad because he told me that if I didn't plug in my RV he'd refund my money and I could leave. We were in a bind and needed a site because of commitments, so I asked about another site. He pointed to a small site across the street, and told me I could take it or leave it, despite several other larger sites nearby. We did get into the site, with the front at the edge of the street, but at least the EMS showed good power. Several neighbors who had heard the man came up to us after he left and all said they couldn't believe how rude and arrogant the man was. Will never stay here again, and would advise anyone else to find another park. - Wraber

Location, location, location. Close to Atlanta, the Braves ballpark and other attractions. The park is older but comfortable. It was easy to navigate for our 24 ft. RV. The owners were helpful in getting us a 5 day stay by moving us around but that was fine with us; it helped us out. There a few big rig spaces but not many. Close to Hwy 75 with no traffic noise. We would come back. - NancyD382

Not a resort. This is in the perfect location for Braves Baseball and amenities in Marrietta and nearby Atlanta. Staff is friendly. The huge drawback of this park are the speed "mountains" throughout the park. Everything scrapes bottom--jacks included unless you are able to angle perfectly which is difficult with cars parked out in the roads. Sites are very tight. - krj89
