9 Parks near Palmetto, Georgia
May 2016 - $35.00
I stayed here only because all other parks were apparently full or weren't taking one-nighters. No amenities. No upkeep. I paid $35 just so I could have electricity and water. Next time I'd do without. - OmakMary

Avoid this place. Very few sites have full hook ups because most of the equipment is broken. Sits right next to I-85, so in addition to being a dump, this place is noisy. There were no site numbers! Worst place I have stayed in my two years of hitting the road and traveling about 10,000 miles. - urlookingood

One word description: Dump! At one time this must have been a nice RV/mobile home park but not in the last 20 years. Many worker RVs and mobile homes with a number of them empty so I guess they are rentals. Adjacent to busy I-85 so there is highway noise. Could not close the electric breaker box with exposed wires due to latch broken. Sewer connection is an open pipe. Water faucet barely sticks out of the ground. Should have gone with my first inclination and left before registering. Discovered ants all over the front of RV the next morning. Did have a fairly level concrete pad to park on. Would not stay here again. - Bamabound

This is a beautifully situated park, with lots of potential. RV park part of the property is less well staffed and cared for than the lodges and zip line tours. Sites are quiet, well situated and shaded in the full hookups part of the park, not very level, but nice and wide. Check in is a confusing process - you have to call from the gate for help, then get less than complete instructions, but from a nice, friendly guy. Trash is distant from camp sites, and no recycling at all. We are not big on zip lines, but our friends went and were impressed. The park could be very nice with a little attention to procedures and conveniences. - mavoufl

Excellent is all I can say. We have traveled all over the US and this is a great place to stay. We got caught in the Atlanta snow storm this January and were here longer than planned. The sites are large, just not as level as they could be, that is the downside. But really no problem, just being picky. Now for the description: this is gated campground, not that it is in a unsafe location or anything, just the opposite. It is nestled in a small town called Whitesburg, GA. Not all that far off I-85 and I-20. The main attraction is the enormous zip-line/canopy tour. There were zip lines and suspension bridges all over the place. A beautiful river runs through the grounds. The lodge is great, especially during the snowstorm. We walked about a quarter to half a mile through the campground, across the bridge over the river to the lodge. There we enjoyed free coffee and tea. The views are wonderful. Highly recommend this place if you are just passing and need a place to rest for a few nights. We would have stayed the whole month, but had to get home and finish some chores. - rod767

We picked this RV campground based on the website pictures and amenities. We have two teenagers and were excited about the different things to do. Well... the pool was closed (which wasn't on the website nor were we told when we talked to someone on the phone) and the RV park is a dive. I saw the reviews from 2009 and I guess a lot has changed since then. There is definitely more than just "a few" people who live at the site. Most of them were old campers or travel trailers, very close together on the pull thru sites. I didn't feel comfortable leaving my camper unattended. We left the next morning and stayed at Stone Mountain the remaining rest of the weekend (good move). The zip line was $65 for the basic (per person)!! That includes 3 zip lines and about 7 bridges you cross. Way too expensive for what you get and that didn't include the screaming eagle. The river is muddy and we were told after we arrived that they didn't recommend any of the water activities because it had flooded in Sept. 2009 and there were a lot of jagged rocks and "other things" we probably didn't want to be near. The side of the park that has the clubhouse and cabins is very nice, but the RV park... not so much. Also, the guy over the RV park is in his 20's and more concerned with getting you off his hands then being helpful. An awful way to start a vacation. I would never recommend this RV park and would not return. - A2007

Pretty park, wooded setting, big grass area in the middle for exercising horses/dogs/kids. Most sites on the river, no hookups, camp wherever you find a picnic table & fire ring. Fire rings were primitive, rocks in a circle. Hardly any privacy between sites but still very pretty & woodsy. Good hiking trails. Most campers came with horses and seemed like locals. Boat launch in camp. We stayed 1 night and did not use facilities. Would stay again. - RaynaGrace

Stayed one night. This is considered primitive camping. They do have a bath house that was clean but no water or electric hookups. We stayed for the one night for the river views of the Chattahoochee River and for the historical sites on the property. This is a beautiful property but keep in mind it is primitive. It is worth a one night stay to hike the property and learn about all the Creek Indian history. - BeDa

This place was beautiful on a lake with water side camp sites. It would be a solid 10 if they would install AC in the restrooms. Paved streets, paved sites, very clean. When it is 95 degrees outside, it is over 100 degrees in the restrooms. Just cool them down and this is a great park. I will be back. - aliner man

This is a beautiful spacious campground and park. Sites are private, have adequate space for unit and car, and have nice picnic space with table and fire ring. Very well spaced. Although it is somewhat of a drive to get to the remote area of the park, it is well worth the drive! Park staff was extremely nice too! - Highway Honu

The sites were extremely spacious and the park has lots of activities including a river, bike trails, and hiking trails. The camp host was very helpful and greeted us upon arrival and it was very quiet and peaceful while we were here. My only issue was absolutely no AT&T service (I had 2 bars of Verizon), but aside from that it was a nice place to stay and the 25% military/veteran discount was awesome. - Lee and Trace

Gave this little campground a shot and loved it! It's about 15 miles from Newnan which is the closest town and there's only 2 gas stations in between so stock up. We stayed in 102 and liked the view and proximity to bathrooms and playground. Slightly uneven pad, but clean and new. All facilities are new so clean and nice as you'd expect. Hiking was good. Try the trails near the entrance. Liked them a little more than the river trail. Sprint cell service was 2 bars 3G. Try it out, you'll love it. - Bkell1978

This is the most horrible park we have ever stayed at. We were wishing that we had just parked in a truck stop for the night. the site was horrible uneven We could not even put our slides out because we could not put down jacks as it was so uneven. They have only 30amp service . Tthis place has some potential but it needs a lot of work to get up to what people want in a RV park . - indian

Campground is old and not taken care of. It is a good location and we are glad it is there. It is okay for a day or two as long as you are self contained. We do wish they would fix up this campground and do the repairs that are needed. Many sites have disabled electric and water which are not used. It is sad to see a campground in this condition. We did enjoy our short stay and are glad it is open and here. There is not another campground anywhere around. - Road Runner

This has got to be the junkiest, most rundown excuse for a "trailer park" there is. We parked and listened all night to limbs from the trees falling on our brand new rig. My husband had to back out of a "pull thru" site and wiggle the RV out. Electric was very low. We didn't even bother to hook up water. The drainage ditch in the back of the park is nasty with very brown water and trash. - J59T

Daily rate is based on a one week stay for $150. Much cheaper than any place else in the Atlanta area that we found. We had FHU next to office with great free wifi. The bath house is located in with laundry and is totally handicapped accessible. There are three washers and three dryers. Both of the bathrooms are unisex and large with a wheelchair accessible shower. Everything is kept clean. We were serenaded in the evening by the spring peepers and could hear a train off in the distance, both very pleasant sounds. There are security lights by the bath house. It was quiet and safe. Most of the residents here are workers so things are very quiet. There are no amenities or activities. It is simply an inexpensive, safe, quiet place to stay while we visited Atlanta which was about 16 miles away. Lots of shopping and many great restaurants in the area. - Da Keeffes

We stayed at this campground for a little over 2 wks. The camp host and owner could not be any nicer and helpful. WiFi not the best. Had no problem with satilite signal. Some sites would require longer electric and sewer hookup. I would not use directions on website. Take Maxham to Old Alabama to Wren Circle. This avoids the residential area. We would stay here again for a shorter stay. - Rebecca B

We stayed 3 nights.
The directions provided on the park's website takes you through a residential area with narrow streets, a short hill ending in tight 90 degree intersection turn, and low hanging trees. It was a challenge to reach the park following those directions in a 41' motor home with a toad.
The park is a former manufactured home development. It opened Fall, 2014 but is still undergoing renovations. The common building was not complete. There was no office. Some of the electrical connections were not functioning. The roads were not in good condition: An open hole in the road near the main entrance; cracks with growing vegetation; roads sloped in a V creating inclines to some of the sites with speed bumps. They were working on the water system so they had the water off for more than 2 hours without prior notice. Tree encroachment into the roads especially at the corners creating a hazard for taller RV's.
The park is laid out in a rectangle with the back-ins along the outside and pull-throughs in the center of the park. They were long enough for our 41' MH with the toad. The sites are generally grass with some concrete areas. There were tire ruts in the grass indicating the parking areas were soft in wet conditions. The utility connections are not well suited for RV use. Depending upon where you park, the connections could require long runs (some looked about 30 to 40 feet long). The sewer connections stuck up above the ground about 6 to 12" creating problems establishing any type of downhill flow.
There were trees to interfere with satellite reception. Only 3 broadcast channels. Only 1 was a major network.
No WiFi offered.
There wasn't a fenced pet area. There was sufficient space to walk dogs along the park's roads and in the surrounding area just outside the park but that area did not feel safe. There were no bag dispensers or receptacles around the park to pick up waste. There was a dumpster available for garbage.
Basically, you pay full rate to park in a field with no amenities and questionable hook ups!
The park is better suited for towables (there was a large 5th wheel in the park), Class C's, Class B's and smaller Class A's. Use Old Alabama Rd to get to the park.
Since there was no office, in order to pay with a credit card you need an internet connection to pay through Pay Pal.
Nearby train whistles all night long. - bsb814

No one there to check us in, yet we had a confirmed reservation. Called and left a message we were there. We picked a site and started to set up. One leg of the electric kept tripping off, water was a brown/grey. Water did clear up after running. Electric concerned us and there was not any one to consult. There no other campers there either.
Place has potential under the right management. - Hey Jude

This is a hard review to write, because there are things that I love about this park and things that I hate. Lets start off with the bad, because if you can handle it you should definitely stay here.
The road into the park is a very long single lane. It is incredibly narrow and a mix of uneven gravel and sporadic paved bits. It is bumpy and there are too many pot holes to count. Your underside will probably get scraped and branches will likely drag across your rig like it did ours.
The bathrooms are pretty gross. There are lots of cobwebs and dead bugs. I peeked at the showers and they were just as bad. I didn't rate them incredibly low, because I can admit that it could be worse. They were at least free from human-specific dirtiness.
The lots are very soft dirt and aren't particularly level because of this. We were able to make do, though.
Now, you are probably wondering about the good. Well...the location is absolutely lovely. It is incredibly shady and pretty. They are walking trails, a farm, an open field, goats, bunnies, and even a peacock. There is also a lake that isn't part of the park, but it is all so nice to look at. It is a gorgeous park nature wise. It feels so incredibly relaxing. All you hear is nature and quiet. I'm guessing a lot of people don't know about this place, because there weren't very many people here, so your neighbors are very spaced out.
Despite how rough it was getting in, I would totally come back. It is affordable and absolutely beautiful. - toocoolfortulle

Gated community. We love rustic parks but this was a little too rustic for us. The main road is red clay and gravel. It was raining lightly when we arrived and the RV lost traction going up the hill on the drive into the camping area. It rained heavily during the night so next day leaving our rear-end diesel pusher lost traction again going up the hill. The shower/bathrooms were very toasty and could use a good sweeping but otherwise ok. Friendly service by older gentleman checking us in. We only used water and electric. Did use pumping station for b/w. Great place for locals, a little off the beaten path for the overnight traveler with a big rig. Will not be returning. - RetNav

Greeted warmly and advised of the 5 sites reserved for 37' RVs. We found the sites and couldn't get satellite in site 10 so chose 7 and leveled fine. Even though there were some nice shade trees we were still able to get satellite at this site. The park is lovely! There are paved trails as well as paths through the park with a fishing pond. Playgrounds were nicely done. About the only thing that was a negative were the huge ants in parts of the park, fortunately we didn't get bitten. We were there for three nights and really enjoyed the stay. - Tony Connie and Rusty

A very nice county park located less than 6 miles south of I-20 (exit 19) with 23 RV sites (5 big rig sites) and 32 tent or pop up sites (in a different section). RV sites (some pull through a) are all full hookups on spacious concrete pads. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only negatives are many of the sites are not level and you cannot reserve specific sites. Be careful about making a reservation as while it assures you of a site, you may not be able to get your RV level on what is available once you arrive. - GICUR12

We stayed here for one night in a 24' Motorhome. The lady at the front desk was extremely cordial, pleasant and very helpful, and even suggested a senior discount which I accepted. The park is very quiet, and overall quite nice with a lot of trails and apparently has some horse riding areas too. The site we picked (site 22) was fairly level so didn't bother with the levelers. We had the pick of most of them, and some seemed very level, and others not so much. Water, electricity and sewer were all good. Our site had a very nice fire ring/grill combo, and a nice picnic table. Despite a fairly remote location, we got 4 bars of Verizon and very good signal on our Karma too. Our only regret is that we didn't have time for much hiking, so we'll be back to enjoy that aspect. We highly recommend this park and will definitely be back! - RobtL
