Rate based on senior pass. The park was a steep climb to get to but we had a beautiful site with a gorgeous view once we got there. We had a huge, private deck, great shade and lake view. As mentioned in another review, the bathhouse was a hike, but was walk-able from our site (1), the furthest site away. The showers only had tepid water. The dump station was placed with the bathhouse instead of at the exit. For sites 1 and 2, built as afterthoughts, the dump is only accessible by driving to the exit, making a careful u-turn, driving all the way back through the park, circling back to the dump station and then making the drive to finally exit, again. We only stayed 2 nights, so it wasn't an issue, but it would be a pain to use the dump from either of those 2 sites. Quite a few of the sites could be difficult maneuvering into, as well. In our opinion, the setting didn't make up for the other deficiencies and resulted in the "5" rating. We camped at Woodring Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.
A really nice area on the lake. Lots are quite steep to back into. Restrooms/showers are far enough to have to drive to. We didn't see how a big rig could get into any of the lots. Swim area not within walking distance of the camping area, necessitating a drive to reach it. We camped at Woodring Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.
I normally like GA COE campgrounds but this one was not as nice as the other campgrounds. A lot of the sites are too close together and are sort of stacked up so that you can have another camper above or below you. There are a few premium sites at the end of the peninsula that could be great, but we were on site 6 which felt cramped. The CG has a beach which was okay but small and with a lot of leaves and debris on the lake floor. There is a really nice mountain bike trail, Amadahy Trail, a few miles before you enter the park.

Rate reflects Senior pass. This is a tough park to rate. Roads are steep and sites do have some issues (some of them) in backing in. But lots of room and great views. Restrooms were great, but a tough hike up hill, particularly for tenters. Beach was good. Problem for us was we had camped at a COE site in VA that had easy access to water from most sites and here, it was rocky and tough climb. So we were disappointed: boo hoo for us. It was a long drive for us to get here so after all that, not what we had hoped. If you want a quiet get-away without crowds, noise and lots of pleasant nature, this is a great spot. Quality of COE campgrounds is good, highly recommended. Just be aware, this is CAMPING, not RV resorting. Yes, that's what we like, just hoped to have a private beach and right out of our door. Other than that, really good. Oh, bring your own firewood; they don't have any for sale in the campground, so it's a 8 mile drive to the closest store that sells firewood. We camped at Woodring Campground COE in a Motorhome.

The CG was clean, people friendly. The only problem was that some sites had a bad dip in the center of them which made backing in TT or other rigs hit ground, other sites were opposite of what your entrance / exit door is from camper, and the some sites were tricky to back into. Noticed lots of groves from bottoming out on the ground. Beach was nice. ADA spots were accessible. Playground. People drove by too fast on paved road which was scary with children on bikes.

We love this campground since it is close to our home. Most of the sites have a water view, and are very enclosed by trees. The fishing is good...when there is more water in the lake. The restrooms/bathhouse are alway clean, but could use an update. There is a guardhouse to monitor entrances..and the local sheriff makes drive thrus to monitor everything. It's also very nice to be able to reserve your favorite spot...which so many campgrounds don't allow. I would definite recommend Woodring Campground. Also, if you like to hike...they have opened the Amadahy Trail just down the road from the campground. It is mostly lakeside hiking and you see a lot of nature. Happy Camping!

We stayed in site 27, which was very steep and difficult for our big rig, but after several attempts we finally got situated. Once there, the view was fabulous! Right next to the lake. Our friends stayed next to us in site 28 and it has a huge wooden deck that looks out over the lake (wonderful to sit on in the evenings and watch the sun go down). This campground is very nice and spacious, but a little out of the way for visiting local restaurants and sight-seeing. We did a lot of fishing and just relaxing while here. We will definitely return. Book early cause these 2 sites are VERY popular! We camped at Woodring Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.
