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

This is a trailer park with RV spots available. RV spots are toward the front of the park and are fairly close together.
The park is located in the NE corner of Atlanta with good access to the Interstate and down town Atlanta.
We would stay again. - 210george

This is a large mobile home/rv park. Mobile homes are separate from the rv's. There are a lot of permanent rv's which are kept up nicely. The small area for those staying less than 14 days was very level, gravel and grass spots, no picnic tables or fire rings. The laundry area was clean and machines were in good running order. This is bare bones with no amenities or trees. We would stay again when passing through. - esta34950

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

This is a challenging place to get to if you don't plan your route carefully. Office help gives directions on phone - pay close attention. If coming from west you'll have to get turned around and that will be a challenge. We came in from the east so didn't have to deal with that but the sign for the park is very small and you have to take it slow so be cautious.
This is a Mobile Home park slowing converting to RVs. Interior streets are paved with lots of, not very visible, speed bumps. Sites are stone, varying degrees of level depending on site, very spread out (spacious). Utilities placed well. Water pressure very high so use a regulator. Wifi available at our site and was fast. Verizon signal strong. Traffic noise from very busy Hwy 78. We would stay here again if in the area.
Note: Dec 2015 review must be the other park based on comments made. - cwier

Clean. A bit noisy with children & boy scouts running about. Well laid out. Bathrooms and trash cans attended to routinely. Nicely stocked store on site. Only real negative would be signage was small and not reflective, horribly difficult to navigate with an after dark arrival. Luckily the DW was in a separate vehicle and guided me in over phone.
Be aware this site (C83 orange) lacked grass adjacent to your entry door & picnic table, thus dirt pickup was an issue. Site is just across from bathhouse, so lots of traffic to & fro. Site faces through woods, the tent camping area. We had two different scout troops just across the way, and this site is the short cut to the bathrooms (scouts & non-scouts), thus, lots of walking traffic, running traffic, and noise. We plan to come back, just will look for a different site. - trimacon

My family and I stayed here the required 2 night minimum on our return trip from Florida. Access to the campground is easy and internal roads were a mix of paved and gravel that were easy to navigate. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a newer section of the campground that was close to Stone Mountain Lake and contained yurts and new park model RVs for rent. We tried to use the pool that was nearby but arrived after is had closed for the day. It looked clean and well maintained. Stone Mountain has its own adventure park that is about 1.5 miles from the campground and is accessible by either car (free parking is available) or a shuttle. We spent the entire day there and ended the day with their laser show that is projected onto the face of Stone Mountain where the likenesses of Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Jefferson Davis are carved. It is a popular event so arrive early to get a good spot. - HighCountry_trio

There were lots of positives and negatives to this campsite, but overall our experience was a good one.
- The signage in the park is nonexistent. If you don't have a map, you will never know where the campground is. It is a couple of miles past the west entrance of the park.
- The park sent us an email a couple of days in advance reminding us of the low clearance level on the east gate and directions on how to get to the west gate. Nice action on their part.
- The roads inside the campgrounds are badly in need of repair. Driving slow is a must, even without the rig.
- Lots of sites, so look closely before you book. The sites are on hills, and elevation is not indicated, so it is easy to get one that is on a incline or low spot. We chose a site far from the office because it looked less crowded, not covered by trees and had a view of the lake. We had no problems backing in our 34' rig and satellite worked great.
- Forget WiFi. It never worked. Fortunately, Stone Mountain is close enough to Atlanta to get good cell coverage so we used our cellular data lines.
- The pool is small, but nice. We were lucky enough to be there mid-week after school started so it was completely empty. But it closes at 6. Why a campground would close a pool that early is beyond me.
- The shower / bathroom facilities were old and unattractive. One look and I never used them.
- There is the Stone Mountain entrance fee of $15 that is not included in the camping price. Irritating but to be expected.
- There is no better access to Stone Mountain Park than this campground. Despite the negatives, the sites are beautiful and it is really convenient to move around the park from this campground. - PBW

This was a beautiful Campground! Very clean and large sites. We were fortunate to get a lakeside lot. Free shuttle to the Stone Mountain attraction. Note: You will have to pay a one-time $15 parking fee to get into and park at the campground. We had a 50% discount with Passport America. Regular price was $56 per night. Worth it, though! - Debbie12376

It is a very nice place to spend a night or a week. It is kept neat and clean and while we were there it was quiet.The sites near the office are close together and there is no shade. Most but not all have full hook-ups. Some sites are 30 amp, some are 20/50. Up the hill further back there are bigger sites with many shade trees. These sites cost a bit more but if I were going to stay for a longer than a week, I'd hope to get one of those sites. They have daily and monthly rates. No showers or laundry that I could see. It is easy to get to route 400. If you travel the alternate roads be aware that there is a great deal of development going on around the area, construction may make passage tricky.
This is a nice place to stay if you are going into the north metro area of Atlanta. It is also convenient to the North GA Mountains.
If you bring your dogs, there are poo bags and waste canisters conveniently placed all over the park. - car2ner

This was pretty much the only RV park in the area for us to use as a base to visit family/friends over the past several years. Other than some sites in the woods it's just three gravel parking lots. The water connection is in the ground. I often had to bail out the muddy water to connect/disconnect the water. Owners/staff are very nice. No clubhouse. No restrooms or showers. No pool. Wifi worked this last time we were there. Wishing there were more convenient choices, but there aren't. It's overpriced a bit for what they offer. It's really only worth no more than $25/night. - retired2000

This park is very convenient to North Atlanta and surrounding cities. Most sites have sewer/electric/water, some just electric and water. They offer a dump station on the property. No cable offered but my antenna worked great. I choose an area away from the trees but there are shaded spots available.
This park is quiet and is surrounded by trees/forrest and has two lakes on the property, hence, Twin Lakes. The office manager was very helpful and accommodating with directions.
I noticed that the electricity does fluctuate going down to 110 on each leg at times. Granted, it is very hot right now so I'm sure there is a heavy load on the grid. I was only able to use 2 of our air units which was adequate but I had to watch for other electric usage as I didn't want to go into a brown out situation.
Be careful pulling in or out on the main road as it's right at a blind curve.
Once you are settled in at Twin Lakes, it's very peaceful. - MarkG.

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

Super convenient to Atlanta. Nice views of the lake, although the few waterfront sites book up quickly. Hosts are extremely helpful and friendly. Some sites have utilities on the same side as the patio / tent pads, which is a little awkward. Overall a great quick getaway from town. - AtlantaBrave

This is my family's favorable campground closer to our home, especially if we are able to secure reservation to one of the lakefront sites. If you do, you will have an abundant (three D) view of Lake Lanier. The lake level is so full this period that you can either fish from your site or swim right at your site. The restroom was rebuilt recently and is always clean. The couple on duty during our two separate stays are very friendly and helpful. The entire site is very clean and well taken care off. The only set back is the fact that you cannot access the campground within the hours of 10:30 pm and 7:30 am. The COE should consider installing a key pad so campers can enter and exit the campground after hours. We will surely continue to camp here for our short-term campings. - Helkken

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

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

The park is in need of work. It appears that there has been little or no maintenance on the park since October 2013. We were here January 10. There is tree limbs on sites and roadways, fire pits are full of debris, trash, cans, ashes, many sites still have paper tags from Oct 27 checkout still hanging. This could be a great campground, but someone needs to start doing some work around here. We used passport and paid $43 for first nite and got second nite free - so for $22 it was not a bad deal and the lake front sites are awesome. - Nickncacki

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 have stayed here at least twice a year for the last 10 years. Always before we were able to pay $5 for a DAYTIME visitor car pass. This time they will only give a pass to the camping vehicle and one other car. No exceptions. This meant our son who was camping with us had to drive several miles out of the park to pick up his wife for a few hours visit. I realize they are limiting the number of cars to cut down on party plans but there has to be a better family-friendly way. The camp hosts say they are only following the Rangers wishes.The Ranger rides through once a day. This is a very old park and much of the shade and privacy is being lost due to tree removal. Don't think we will return. - June from Savann ahb

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
