Sites were big and partially shaded. Level, gravel, fire ring and grill. Bath houses were clean and well stocked. The DNR Ranger is very friendly and drove through the campground several times each day. The civilian staff were friendly and were willing to help, if needed. The camp host took us on a boat ride to see wildlife and went above and beyond to help our friends try to fix some plumbing issues. Breaker went bad and they fixed it within 20 minutes, of course it was during the day. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone. Nice center with info on the area. Live "gator" in a tank to look at. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, well kept, lots of amenities for a state park-cable tv, full hookup. Waterfront sites would make it a 9- 10. We chose a Very large pull thru site on end. Easy access in and out for our 45' motorhome. Poor AT&T service. Go see Providence Canyon. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is absolutely awesome. It's quiet, has plenty of shade and probably the nicest bathhouse I seen at a state park. Sites are spacious, and all sites have sewer hookup, and cable, not all sites have 50 amp but some do. All sites are well marked and easily to tell where the boundaries of the sites are. We are in site 22 it has a concrete pad, others are grass and gravel no one seem to have an issue leveling. A drawback for some, not us, is that it is in a remote location. The closest town for supplies is about 20-25 miles away; fuel/gas could be found a little closer but wouldn't depend on it. Ranger said in the summer months they stay pretty full but this time of year it's very quiet. A visit to Michele's seafood is a must for a great seafood buffet.

I don't understand the positive remarks. This is the worst park we have stayed at. You can't tell where the campsite's are, to many leaves. At times very noisy. Have to travel by car to fish. campsites not maintained, trash, burn pits not cleaned out. would never stay here again... We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The guy who checked us in was a friendly guy who could have been in a movie...smooth fellow. He said we had selected the best park in Georgia for our stay and he was probably right. I have not stayed in many Georgia parks, but it was as good as any park I have been in. If they had WiFi and were closer to a store or restaurant, I would have rated them a 10. The cable TV was excellent. They have many pull-thru spaces and I had many to choose from. Providence Canyon is only about a 10 minute drive away. I highly recommend the trek. The marina that was part of the park looked really good, but I did not have my boat with me. Two guys came in near me who had a 30' travel trailer and a pontoon boat in tow behind it...never seen that much in tow before. They had plenty of room for both and the tow truck in their pull-thru camping space. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful campground in a lovely wooded area. The sites are large and well spaced. We camped here all summer because we were in the area on business. It is very well maintained and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It does not get much use and on most nights there were only a few campers in the campground. It is located on a large lake with a fishing pier and marina. There is also a nice playground and putt-putt golf. It is in a remote area and is very peaceful.

This park overall was pretty nice. Great fishing, great photo ops! Staff and host were very friendly! The grass was excessively high! They began cutting the day we were leaving because July 4th was that week. They had a pool, but it was covered and locked up. Don't know why. You could not swim in the lake, because it had lots of alligators. Planning on staying in one of their cabins next year and bringing a bass boat though!

What a beautiful park this is! We really enjoyed our stay here and loved walking around the picturesque woods and checking out the lake. No WiFi to speak of and AT&T internet and phone were useless. We had to use our Verizon internet and phone while here and those didn't work so well either. The cable is maybe 12 channels but you don't usually see cable at a state park anyways. They had just opened the renovated bathrooms while we were there and everything was clean and worked good. We would return if in the area again.

A nice stop for a night over. But put me in mind of private concessionaires taking over and not really providing the needed upkeep. Some tables were the worse for the wear as was the restroom facilities. They were clean, but well used and showed it. Many pull through sites and very open. It put me in mind of a fish camp, where the guys go to fish all day, care about their catch, their boats and a good meal at days end and that's all. At $27 minus a senior discount of 20%, but add the $5 park pass totaled $26.60. Not bad, but Bluff Creek Access, a corp park, a few mile north in Alabama is gorgeous and a whole lot cheaper with the America Beautiful pass. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped during spring break and expected this park to be busy. However, the only sites left were "overflow" which consisted of a large grassy area with hook-ups scattered about. Several campers were almost touching. The fact that several real campsites had been reserved to only hold someone's boat trailer made this a little tough to handle. The host said he couldn't do anything about it, although that was clearly against Ga State Park Rules. We were very disappointed. It is a short drive to Providence Canyon so at least we saw that. Closest real store is over 20 miles, so take what you need. Bathrooms were dirty and in disrepair. The pool is closed and the tennis court has grass and moss growing on it.

Due to budget cuts, the pool will not be open again this year (2010). Also some of the facilities are beginning to show wear, specifically the shower house. The drain was very sluggish and water pooled at your feet. However, overall, I think this campground offers good value. It's only $27 and it includes cable TV and sewer. One suggestion: get all your groceries and supplies before you get there. The nearest full-size grocery store is 20 miles away. You have to go to Columbus or Eufaula for a decent restaurant.

This would be a great park to visit if you planned to do some boating, however we like to hike. There is no hiking in the park. Some of the sites were beautiful pull-thru sites, but we had a site that backed right up to the one behind it. Fortunately, our friends were on that site. The pool is closed for this year due to funding issues. The park was clean and well-maintained. The staff was excellent: very friendly and efficient.

Nice state park with gravel sites. Full hook-up is available along with cable TV, unusual for a State Park. Park Rangers and the Campground Host were very helpful and pleasant. The restrooms were okay, but need some work and/or updating. Several of the showers did not work and where they located the hooks in the changing area makes them useless for hanging anything. There was a shelve and a bench for placing items on, though. This is a great park for bike riding with several paved roads with uphill and downhill riding. Also, the nearby roads are not busy and are good for bike riding. The park is on a huge lake with a lot of birds and wildlife around. Witnessed several Great Blue Herons feeding their chicks high up in the trees by the lake. Canadian Geese were also plentiful. There is a nice Interpretive Center located in the Park. There are also cabin and efficiencies available for rent. There is a limited supply of dry goods and RV supplies at the registration office. This park is far from civilization and the closest town is 16 miles away with very limited store and gas options. Providence Canyon State Park is 10 miles down the road and worth the drive to see. We would return to this campground. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Senior rate of $19.20 paid. As mentioned, the baths and laundry are dated. But the sewer was a nice bonus for a state park. Lots of nothing around here, great for some R and R. It is a good 20 miles to a full size market in Eufaula AL. We will come back if in the area. We just love the GA state parks. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Motorhome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Florence Marina. We were encouraged by reviews that had been previously posted and decided to give it a try. The campground lived up to its reputation. Everyone that we encountered were extremely friendly and made us feel like we were part of the community. The only thing that keeps us from giving a perfect 10 is the bathhouse is starting to show its age. It is in need of updating. Several of the urinals in the men's restroom were broken and the metal coverings around the doors were rusting. If you go fishing, you need to we aware of the gators. We saw five gators that were 6-8 feet long. Also, be sure to visit Providence Canyon, it's worth the hike! We are looking forward to visiting again. They recommend that you have reservations before you come. Even though this is in a remote part of Georgia, it has been discovered by people from as far away as Canada that visit on a regular basis. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Motorhome.
