This was the strangest place we've stayed to date.
Pros - the land itself is beautiful. Amazing views, peaceful. Very friendly staff.
We were placed not on a real spot. We were piggybacking off another spot where the resident was away for the weekend (the owner directed us there) but the location for us was perfect.
Cons - the layout is just bad. Most hookups are at the front of the driveway so you can't use them. The driveway is hilly. Tons of loose dogs (even the staff's dog was loose - I think it was the staff's dog). There were long-term campers who were probably the least friendly people you could meet. NOT A PLACE FOR BIG RIGS - there is a low-hanging wire before you enter that is under 13 feet. You will catch it. Just go VERY slow and your antenna will snap back and forth. While we did make a reservation, indicated specifically we had a 45' Class A motorhome, they really didn't have a place for us. Their solution was to pull through a large field of grass and piggyback onto a resident's site next door as he was away for the weekend. Most of the lots were back-in and were parallel to the road, so you basically had to parallel park. It was the strangest thing.
All in all, this place seemed like an wonderful opportunity lost. The land was gorgeous. If they were to update the lots to have the hookups in the right location, if they were to build the lots correctly, it would be amazing. - Kamnel

The park is exceptionally well maintained. There are multiple tiers with some sites well over 100' long. Ours was located parallel to a grove of trees. There are about seventy cows that come visit the pasture next door. There is a great museum on property as well as an entertainment center. This really is not a park for kids. It's more for laying back and relaxing. The town of Rockmart has a dumpy "historic" section and a newer work in progress. Other than bicycling The Comet Trail, it's 100 percent boring. - rick r

We chose this park based on its location and previous reviews. We will never stay again! The owner was a very nice gentleman and he seemed to have some big plans and great ideas for his park. However, I do not believe he had ever stayed in an RV park before. We have been fulltime rvers for 7 years and have never stayed in such a difficult park. Once into the campground it took 2 hours to find a suitable site and get leveled. Most sites had the connections in inaccessible spots or were within inches of neighbors or trees. When we left it took over an hour to inch our way out of the driveway. The rig before us scraped their bottom badly as they tried to leave. The restrooms and showers were not ones that I would ever consider using. Please check carefully before you enter this park. - Loralie

The park is located immediately adjacent to US Route 411 and easily accommodated our 40 ft motorhome. Sites include full hook-ups. Most sites are back-in but there are several pull-throughs. The pull-throughs are long and level but many are narrow with barely enough room to put out slides on both sides. Many of the back-in sites are very sloped (front to rear) requiring several inches of boards or blocks to reach level. Power, water, and sewer connections were all good but the power pedestals have only a 50 amp plug and require an adapter for units needing 30 amps. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly and does a good job of maintaining order in a campground with many long-term residents and many weekend water-sports enthusiasts. The quality of the wifi varies with time of day and occupancy but is, in general, one of the better campground wifis. They have multiple repeaters so signal strength is generally pretty good. Most, though not all, sites are satellite friendly. There are no over the air channels available. We had good AT&T 4G LTE signal. The restrooms were clean but dated. We did not use the laundry. The store has an extensive selection of kayaks and gear. While they do not have a pool, they are located on a very nice creek with swimming, fishing, canoeing, tubing, and kayaking available. They welcome pets with the usual restrictions but this is a rural park so stray animals sometimes wander into the park. The town of Cave Spring is located about 2 miles away and has a small grocery store and a few small restaurants including a very nice steakhouse. The town of Rome, GA, with more to offer is about 15 miles away. Because we stayed monthly our average cost was only $10/night. They do offer Passport America and Good Sam Club discounts. If visiting the Rome, GA area, this is the closest campground with good "big rig" access and it is definitely a favorite weekend get-away for folks in the area. When visiting Rome, we will definitely stay here again. - wmbarryd

Stayed a few nights visiting family in the area. It was wet and rainy so mud and water everywhere. Backed up to the river for a nice view. - cgaskins

The staff are all friendly and helpful. The park is adequate but not a lot more than a parking lot, although the lots on the creek side are a bit nicer. (We stayed mountainside.) We likely wouldn't stay here again, as there is nothing that makes this park 'stand out' and it is about 40 miles from the interstate in the 'middle' of nowhere. - justkreuzin

We stopped here for a night. No problem getting a nice site with a view of the river. Staff was very friendly and helpful and park was obviously well-maintained. A great spot for fishermen, the park has a boat ramp. A hiking trail wends along the river. - WxToad

Sites are a little close to each other but this is a very nice city park with many sites right on the river. Fair Verizon signal. - mockturtle

Excellent campground! Not really a bad site in the campground, but the lakeside sites are amazing! However, no reservations are accepted, so you need to arrive during the week to get a lake site. There are several lakes for fishing, and a really nice beach right next to the campground. Ideal for biking and hiking as well. The only grills available in the campground are built into the fire-rings. There are at least four really nice handicap sites available that remained unused during our stay with a full campground. No sewer hookups at sites, but a nice dump station is at the campground exit. Very strict rules exist, so make sure to follow them! And when they say the lake is open from "Sunrise to Sunset," they mean 6:30 until 8:30 with no exceptions. We enjoyed our visit and will definitely return!! - RandyP

This is one of our favorite campgrounds because it's secluded, has excellent sites. Lakefront sites are spacious. Some sites are a bit unlevel. There is a beautiful beach for swimming. The scenery is gorgeous. This is a friendly campground. It is on a first come first serve basis and you fill out your envelope and pay on the honor system. Staff come by sites and are friendly. This is a dog friendly campground too. - hqndagal

Nice campground setting. Lots of shade. Nice beach. Bathrooms and showers where a bit dirty. Not much hot water. You must pay a one time vehicle fee, $3. 00, in addition to the camping fee. Very good fishing. Many camp sites are located right on the water. The campsites themselves were clean and level. Great place to bring a canoe. - flyby6563

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

Actually I did not stay in this campground. A friend wanted me to check out for him. This place is a REAL DIVE, cars up on blocks, what was left of the road in the campground had huge potholes in it, lots of trash and lots of seasonal RVers with rundown RVs. Overall really run down. I would not recommend anyone staying there. - ETB

This is a beautiful Military campground. However, it is Not big rig friendly. The railroad track you have to cross once leaving the interstate scrapped the bottom of our motor home even while crossing it very slowly. The road in the campground is steep and windy with over hanging tree limbs. We could not get level on our site and did not put out the slides. It was a very uncomfortable night. We saw only two sites which might work for a big rig but driving through the campground is very difficult. The staff were very friendly on the phone; however, we received no warning as to the challenges of staying there in a big rig. The lake is very pretty and the campground appeared to be very well maintained. In a smaller rig this place would be ideal. Be aware, however, there is a lot of road noise from the interstate. - Wgcamper

This park was disappointing for us for several reasons. First, it is down a very narrow winding two lane road and over some steep and angled railroad tracks. On one turn, we launched our coffee pot from it’s location and broke it. The turn in, if you enter from one direction, is very sharp (125+ degrees). Distance wise, it’s only a few hundred yards below I-75 and one does hear the interstate. Once in the campground, we were assigned the only available site we were told that would handle our 40 ft rig and it was the handicapped site. It was under the trees (all sites are under the trees) so our rooftop satellite wouldn't lock on. Our bow-tie antenna, with built in booster, pulled in about 8 channels. Most were junk i.e. religious, QVC, infomercials etc. ) and not worth watching. The on site free cable was inoperable so we missed a World Series game. The lake was down due to flood control so no boating or swimming. Only one restroom was working and it was a hike from our site. It does offer 10 rental cabins, 10 tent sites and 12 W/E only RV sites. The CG shows an unsecured Wi-Fi at our site but we could never connect. Our Verizon Mi-Fi allowed us to get the internet. It’s a bit of a drive to the nearest small town of Cartersville and the closest grocery chain was 6 miles away. All in all, this is one facility that we will avoid in the future, even if it means paying a bit more somewhere else. - 5thwheeler

Very convenient for an overnight off of I75. Sites are older but electric has been upgraded. Hosts were very helpful and friendly. Gate is locked after hours with no admission...get home after curfew and you are walking! Some roads and sites were a little tight for our 33ft. Great value with the Access pass. For longer stays we prefer McKinney, which is nearby and is much more peaceful. - tom&kathryn

Nicely shaded well manicured sites with level pad for outside cooking and or tenting. I-75 does cross over front entrance to park and sites 1 -29 noisy during the day hours. Park attendants are hit or miss regarding hospitality. Some are overly friendly and others are down right mean. We have camped at this park for 7 years now and love the convenience of local new built Publix grocery store on hwy 41 a mere 2.5 miles away. Only major complaint is that front gate is locked at 11:00PM with no exit until 7:00AM. This makes it very tough. They should combination lock the gate. I guess I should be glad for the security right? Some of the lower number sites are small but in no wake cove of lake Alattonna so boats at Blockhouse day use don't jeopardize safety when swimming. The park is controlled by the Army Core Of Engineers Mobil, AL division. Reserve USA is now sub contracted out and what a mess. Much better last season. Ugh!! Anyway nice park and don't let I-75 scare you. Its still very nice and will continue to camp there for years to come. - beech2000

Campground is beautifully shaded with most sites on the water. Restrooms are well maintained and camp hosts are very accommodating. Sites have picnic tables and grills, nice level paved sites. BUT, it seems this campground was developed before I-75 put a bridge over that section of Lake Allatoona. The high level of noise from cars and trucks crossing the I-75 bridge can be heard in every section of this campground. Even when we were inside our rig with the A/C on, we could hear the roar of the traffic all night long. It’s such a shame as this is a beautiful campground. - giggleshanks

The park staff was friendly and courteous when checking in and very helpful on the phone when making same day reservations.
The campground is very clean, well kept up and has a "state park" feel with lots of full hookups. As in the other reviews, sites are not very level and takes a bit to get level enough. Sites are spaced apart nicely for a private park. The park is gated. Was not sure what to expect as we drove down a long rather narrow paved road in the middle of the hills and woods. Was pleasantly surprised. - NanciRV

Our first time staying here with our 18' travel trailer. This is a very social campground. Sites are close together and people visit. We liked it. Our neighbor (who full-times going back and forth between 2 parks) introduced us to several other campers who were very friendly and welcoming. We also meet several others on our own. Hookups are weird in that they are in front of the pads, meaning power and water have to run under the camper or around. Barely made it with our 30' water hose. Also used every bit of our leveling blocks to get somewhat level. Only downside is we were 2 hours late checking out (our own fault) and were charged a full night's rate. We will definitely return here and pay attention to the time on check-out day :) - Gpforet

Just a quick one nighter! A real forest feel to the place; felt like camping. Plenty of room to maneuver our 57' total length. Gated access with a code. We would stay again and longer next go-a-round. - Full Timers 2

There are so many things wrong with this place. The gate is broken. There is trash everywhere. The restrooms are nasty and supplies are never available. The office manager is a disorganized and very rude person. We paid $600+ for a month and a week which was not recorded properly and I received harassing calls and then when provided the receipts there was no apology just pure rudeness. Also, our window was shot out while we camped there. It was a disaster and NOT WORTH A PENNY! - TNTRVTRAV

This park was very confusing, you couldn't tell where the roads were or the camping spaces. We kept in circling trying to see the camp site numbers...they were on the back side of the water stump. So you had to get out and walk up to the sight to see what sight you were at, no pads or much gravel. The campground itself was a hill and all the grass was grown up. Trash was everywhere, no garbage cans. There were full timers there with a wight lift bench that was all rusted. When we went to talk to the lady who checked us in, She became hostel and slammed things around, she was very rude. When we called for reservations they never answered the phone...it took many calls. We only stayed one night and went to the COE park down the road. I would not recommend this campground to anyone. - Carrie2002
