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.

Tips for other Campers:

Be certain to visit Callaway Gardens. Watch for deer at night on the roads.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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. Roosevelt State Park in a Tent Trailer.

One of our favorite parks. They have increased the number of volunteers and it is showing. The water/30 Amp sites are very generously sized. The place is very quiet at night. FDR is GAs largest state park and has over 40 miles of some of the most beautiful trail you will ever see. The park is just a few miles from the entrances to Callaway Gardens and FDRs little White House in Warm Springs. We have stayed here many times and it is one of our favorite parks. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was hilly but most of the sites are level the park was clean and the staff was friendly. There was a lake that you can fish in but there was no beach area. The pool was nice but its a mile and half hike to the pool from the campground we decided to drive seeing that we had small kids with us there was room to park your RV in the parking lot. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

Great park to sit and do nothing. Our kids were able to fish and bike while we kept an eye on them. Easy access to hiking trails also. Our site was clean, maintained, and tree covered. Our travel trailer is 35 feet, so our size kept us out of many of the sites. We were able to secure a pull through site the second time through the park. When choosing a site, you may want to arrive early and mid-week if you are over sized and prefer a lot of choices. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park Rangers rarely patrolled the campgrounds prompting a few campers to allow their dogs to run loose through the campsites. Camp store is privately owned, and does not honor “Friends” discounts. Fish Bait can be purchased at Ace Hardware Store in Pine Mountain. Fish were not biting in March. Enter and exit campground from back entrance only, trailer will drag at front entrance across from check-in office. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

An interesting park, not without its challenges if navigating a 30 foot trailer. Water and Electric only in smallish wooded sites, many around the Lake Delanor. State employees somewhat brusque but took our money. Nice to see once. We will not go back. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Loved this campground and can’t wait to go back. The scenery was just amazing. The sites were level, but be careful, one of the sites that we tried had part of the entrance washed out. Unfortunately one of our tires hit it and did damage to our drain. It was marked with red paint on the ground but couldn’t really see it until after the fact. The campground offered 3-4 activities a day during the weekend we were there. There are many, many things to do in the area. Can’t wait to go back when we can stay longer. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of my favorite parks. I am not a boater but like having a lake. And this lake is small with some rentals but no motor boats. We stayed in a 27ft TT and had room enough for another car. The sites are nice and level, but need to be re-graveled and 3-4 needed to be graded. And there are deep ditches on each side of the road makes it hard for backing in. (If it weren't for these items I would have given it a 10.) The bathrooms and showers were the cleanest I have ever seen. They had several parks for kids. Each site had a picnic table, fire ring and lamp post. There were several covered picnic areas throughout the campground for camping guests only, so you didn't have a lot of non-campers tromping around. The lake was full of bass, frogs, turtles and tadpoles: for those of you who enjoy nature. The dump station was easy to get in and out of. I met three personnel and all were very friendly. They have a little store in the campground area that sells all sorts of things like food, supplies, wood, ice, ice cream and nets to catch the frogs and tadpoles I mentioned earlier. There is a shallow spillway that is fun to play in. We were not able to go to the swimming pool: it was not open yet. It had much more to offer but we only stayed two nights. They are located ten minutes from Calloway Gardens as well. We will be returning to this park soon. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Oh wow how beautiful! This is Georgia's largest state park built by the CCC. There is a seasonal swimming pool called the Liberty Bell Pool. There are hiking trails galore. Just down the road is FDR's Little White House in Warm Springs and Callaway Gardens. The sites are spaced generously apart and we had no trouble with our 39' rig. The lake is small and non-motorized, excellent for fishing. A picnic table and grill are on cement pads at each campsite. We camped in Area B. This park is great and we hope to go back again for a longer stay. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Portions of the campground were closed off this time of year. Our loop looked recently upgraded and was spacious. The road through this loop is narrow, but navigable, and backing in was no problem at all. Each site has electric and water, along with a fire ring and a large, concrete picnic table. At a number of sites, there are gray water drains installed near the road for campers to use. The road into the campground is steep downhill, and the park itself is located on a narrow mountain road in the Georgia hills. There was a mix of pull-through and back-in sites. The trees were not too dense, so our satellite TV on a tripod worked well. Also, there is good broadband internet service and Tracfone worked as well. The campground is about 10 miles from the Little White House and a good location for visiting Warm Springs. The price reflects a 25% discount for "winter" camping. There was hardly anyone here in early February. We stayed here to visit Warm Springs, which can be done in a day or so. Although we don't expect to be by this way again, if we were, we'd stay here. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.
