The 4.2 mile entrance road to this campground reminds me of "The Devils Tail". Lots of twists, turns, ups and downs; but, the road is wide enough and in good condition so it shouldn't be a problem for even the largest rig if you're careful. Watch out for motorcycles on this road.
The CG is very nice. Carter Lake is a high mountain lake and the locals say it's a few degrees cooler in the summer. Like all COE parks, this one is well laid out for the terrain. However, the designer had some challenges on this one because of the narrow peninsulas. The lengths listed online are for the pad only; there is additional space in the site for a tow/towed vehicle. Because of the terrain many sites are oriented so the door faces the road and not the lake. Refer to the campground map on Recreation. gov to see these. Camp sites 18, 19, 21, 31, 32 and 33 (maybe a few more) are narrow with the "sitting area" behind the site instead of adjacent to the door side. These are still good sites, but don't allow much sitting area beside the camper. Most of the sites have a good view of the lake, although they are higher than the lake level in elevation. Some sites have decks or large door side sitting areas. There is a small swimming area with benches provided in a viewing area. Site 20 overlooks the swimming area. Good Verizon cell phone coverage. There is only one bath house for 40 sites, but it is clean and in good repair. Plenty of hot water in the showers with "real" controls (not a push button). The access loop for the dump station is a little short - fifth wheels have to "swing wide" for the proper approach. Also, the dump station has a little forward slope which doesn't allow complete draining of some of your tanks. Reports are the fishing is good with lake trout and bass. This is a nice, quiet campground. We will return. We camped at Woodring Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of restaurants, antique shops and gift shops in Ellijay, about 15 miles away.

A lot of fishermen camp here at this small but very deep lake. It's our go to place when we don't want to burn a lot of gas and can have neighbors come out to visit.

We stay in a 35 ft motor home and I don't think I've seen any bigger rigs there. We have a couple of favorite sites. Some sites are narrow and your fire ring and table are behind your unit. Almost all sites are shady. The CG is on a ridge line so they had to get creative with the site placements.

The shower house was clean but could use some updating. We camped at Woodring Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The dump station is not level....front pitched down hill...had to raise up with leveling jacks to get tanks empty.

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. We camped at Woodring Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

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 camped at Woodring Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

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.
