Lots of rotted timbers in sites and some sharp metal that could potentially damage tires. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One night stay in transit to Florida. Based on previous reviews, requested a 40' site so we could stay in Loop 500, which was a good decision. Site was spacious, private, shady and had electric and water. On a Monday, only 3 others campers in the loop including the host who we never saw: LOL. Understand it started to thunderstorm 30 minutes after arriving. Speaking of which, be careful which site you choose as flooding seemed to be an issue on some sites. Pleasant and adequate overnight stay although would have liked to seen a ranger or host make security rounds. Giving them the benefit of the doubt because of weather. Route 190/354 and going thru the "Back Gate" was a better drive in/out of the CG than going up Lake Delanor Rd across from the Visitors Center. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in late April/early May for a total of 15 nights (one extra night approved by manager). We love state parks for the feel of being in the woods instead of a parking lot and this campground had plenty of that! There were several loops to camp in, some with lake views, but we chose loop 500 for the large private sites. We had a nice pull-through site with a ton of space between our neighbors on both sides. Neighbors across the street were staggered, so there was no one directly across the street from us. We loved hearing the huge variety of songbirds in this park! They serenaded us all day and night. We saw a really strange squirrel-like creature that we asked about and were told it was a fox squirrel. Had never seen one before and only saw the one on that day and never saw another. We never saw deer or other wildlife (beside squirrels and birds), but it was very quiet and peaceful. There was an older bath house on our loop and there are trails to it from every campsite. The camp hosts kept the bathhouses very clean, but one shower stall backed up and seemed in danger of flowing over the one time I used that stall (there were only two in the ladies'). Mentioned to the camp hosts that said they had told maintenance about it. We were lucky to be camping there before peak season and the campground was basically empty except for the weekends. This is a beautiful park, with lots and lots of hiking trails, some right from the campground. Callaway Gardens is next door and has miles of bike trails, which we took advantage of three different times (there is an entrance fee, but if you go more than once, an annual pass is a better deal). The gray water dump stations spaced conveniently around each loop saved us from towing our blue boy over to the dump station at least twice during our stay. All in all, a great place to spend a day, a week or longer! We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Originally planned on driving to Florida but didn't have the extra days for a 6+ hour drive. After a little research on RV Park Reviews we arrived in Pine Mountain. Wonderful weekend. Level campsites, lake view, clean park, plenty of walking trails and a Saturday morning "fairy furniture" class with one of the rangers. Couple of the lanes are tight for larger rigs, some of the sites have gray water dumps within 30'-40', if you have a 30' plus trailer stay out from behind the trading post. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Little White House is a 15 minute drive. Walking trail behind the trading post returns after an easy walk to just below the dam. Fishing then a lot of stone skipping for the kids. Ranger mentioned miles of bike trails in Callaway.

We stayed here in early December for the annual 40-mile trail race in the park. This is Georgia's largest state park. There are over 23 miles of trails here - great for hiking and running. There are many large pull-through sites here. We had one with a lake view. All the loops are very nice. The sites in the 500 loop are especially large, private, and shaded. This campground may be hot in the summer, but it's a great spot for winter camping. Sites are very level. Our water pressure was a bit low. We had excellent 4G Verizon coverage. There are lots of amenities and activities to keep you busy in the surrounding towns. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you camp a lot in Georgia, join the Friends of Georgia State Parks. You'll avoid the parking fee, get 10% off campsite fees, and get one free night of camping. You can also join the RV club and get a free night after you've camped a certain number of nights in the parks.

Only one loop that would accomodate our 38' unit. Came in at night. Mistake, not having been here before. Enjoyed the campground --- lots of hiking trails in the park. No sewer sites. limited 50 amp sites. Folks were friendly and helped a great deal. If in the area, may use it for a stop-over for a few nights. Visited the "Little White House". Interesting. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second Georgia State Park, so we were familiar with the process. Check-in was easy and the clerk gave us an overview of which sites would be appropriate for our rig. We have a 38' RV and we're hoping for a 40'+ site with 50 amps. We started by driving through the lakefront sites, but the site we wanted was taken, so we decided to head towards the other loop that she said had more sites that would suit us. The roads throughout the campground are narrow, single lane, with washouts on both sides in many places and trees sometimes in places that make it difficult for a larger rig to get through. That said, we made it out of this loop and headed to the next one. Georgia had seen about a solid week of rain before we arrived at FDR and many of the sites had flooded areas, so that limited our choices as well. We eventually found a site that we could back into and we started hooking up. The site we chose was a 30 amp site, with two 30 amp hookups. The first we tried didn't work, so we hooked up to the second one, which worked until out AC kicked in, when it popped it's breaker. We reset it, but it was very hot, so we contacted the park and they sent someone over, who ultimately replaced both. So, all was well.

When we don't have sewer hookups, we use the bath house and, although they are fairly old, they were clean. There was no washer/dryer, but we were OK with that. The park is huge and there are lots of hiking trails and the drive through the center of the park was beautiful. We drove to Warm Springs and visited the Little White House one day and Callaway Gardens another.

After driving around, minus the RV, we found many other sites that we would be happy in. There are a wide variety of spots, some more private or scenic than others. We had no problem finding a spot for our satellite, but I suspect you wouldn't be as fortunate in some other spots. We enjoyed our stay and would consider returning in the future. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We normally camp in a travel trailer, but my son and I wanted to "rough" it in a tent. Wooded sites, some near water, miles and miles of trails, all levels of terrain. Pond to fish in, lots of history, built by ccc, near callaway gardens. I have camped here 3 times in the past. Staff is very friendly. The only improvement I think they need to consider is to have the park ranger make more trips through the campground. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Tent.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed in. We love the forest, the trees they have kept in the park, the spacious sites, the well-laid out design, railroad-tied site markers, the designated patio and tent pad at each site, the park amenities, the paved roads for biking and walking, the lake, the rental boats, easy to maneuver roads, the clean bathrooms and pleasant staff. All around, just great. Hope to go back this Summer and stay longer than one night. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

If there were full hookups, this park would be a ten. No sewer or television hookups. We arrived at dusk and did not know some campsites have gray water pits. Reservations get you a campsite but it's first come to get the best locations. Checking in is very easy. Staff very friendly. Hookups are old and need updating but worked well. Nice convenience store located in the park. Dump station accommodates three RVs at a time. We will return. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The campground is next to a small lake on the side of the mountain. There is a small trading post and a host at the campground but you must check in at the visitor center at the top of the mountain during office hours. Visitor center is about a mile up a steep hill from the campground so forget walking or biking there. Sign at visitor center says if you arrive after hours pick out a site and register in the morning. Gravel sites on one-way paved loops. Pretty setting, friendly service, and adequate facilities. Enjoyed the views from the ridgetop Pine Mtn Rd and the Pine Mtn Trail. Will return another time to explore the nearby Little White House at Warm Springs. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Truck Camper.

If you want to avoid the climb back up to the visitor center then the long downhill ride along Pine Mtn Rd when departing the campground, continue on past the trading post to a lower elevation exit from the park.

Nice park, nice staff. Well worth the stay. We ended up staying 2 weeks. Sites fairly well maintained. We had one of two 30 amp outlets not working. Called office, within 20 minutes maintenance had it repaired. I stayed in a 40 foot RV and had a fair amount of site options. Great trails. If you need to restock on food, plan on driving 20 minutes to LaGrange. Best grocery options.Local restaurants reasonable. Of course Calloway Gardens very close and a must see. The only negatives of this park is that they do allow tents in 40 foot plus sites, which can limit your options as far as larger RVs go. Also, water pressure very low. My gauge registered average of 38 psi. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

Great park. Site #302 was fairly level, 2 Lego blocks under the left rear wheel leveled us. Spacious site with lots of privacy. Very friendly people at the camp store. Having it nearby was great, because the hike to the main lodge was long and steep. Took the hiking trail back to the camp site, which was great, but also took several hours, something to consider when it is hot. The swimming pool wasn't open until Memorial Day, but is also quite a hike. We saw the pool on our way out, and it looks great, very inviting. Another CCC masterpiece. But the main office takes the cake. Make sure you stop and enjoy the view from the terrace there! Will definitely be back. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived the Saturday before Memorial Day at 12 noon. Park is well situated in Pine Mountain Ga. next to Warm Springs, home of FD Roosevelt's Little White House. He would vacation there to take advantage of the natural springs. Checking into camp is a real treat. The Park Office was built by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) in 1933. Take a moment to walk around the center. Reservations were hard to get for Memorial day but we secured the last Handicapped site #225. Reserve America assured me this was appropriate since the campground was full. I felt better seeing that the other handicapped site next to us remained empty all weekend. Our site was situated directly next to the bathhouse. As for the site: The lights from the bathhouse illuminated our site after sundown. The occasional whiff of Texize wafted into our sitting area. The foot traffic to the bathhouse was minimal. One thing we noticed was the camp hosts checked on the bath rooms three times a day. They were cleaner than many campgrounds we have stayed in. The site was not paved and had the larger aggregate rock bed. Sturdy picnic table and the ubiquitous fire ring. My tRV is 32 ft and my 2500 tow vehicle barely fit in front. The roads are paved in the campground (except camp area # 4) and are one way. The road in front of our site was on the lower side of a curve and folks fly around that corner. If you have children, I would stay away from sites 220- 231. Perhaps it was the clientele this weekend but folks just drove way to fast. The road through camp area # 2 is a little narrow so be be sure to watch your mirrors for your camper's clearance around some of the turns. There are 6 camping sections. There were a lot of tents. Even pull throughs were occupied with Coleman tents. My guess is that 40% of the sites were occupied with tents. The campground is a hikers paradise. There is a nice sized lake with very clear water. You can rent Jon boats or canoes. We really liked the Trading Post that was just a short walk from our site. Ice, bait, camping supplies and they are open til 9! Overall we believe our experience would have been totally different had we been able to pick our site. We will go back just not on a busy Memorial Day weekend. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Good park, we stayed in the older section, the newer sections have the best bath/shower facilities. Gravel lots, plenty of activities and lots of kids though everything was quiet by 8:00pm. What I do not understand was the amount of tent campers utilizing trailer spaces, campground was full unless you were using a tent and actually used a tent space. You have to wonder if the park realizes they are losing money allowing the tents on trailer spots? Definitely will return, we were a little early for the Fall colors. We camped at F. D.
