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. We camped at The Rock RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at The Rock RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at The Rock RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at The Rock for about a year and a half. Loved the quiet and open space. Nice grassy areas for kids to run around in. Also has a cool lake and stream through it. They have nice swings throughout the camp which are great to just chill. Many pretty trees line the area although our spot had none. Makes for a very hot camper in the summer. Staff was laid back and easy to work with. Our spot got pretty muddy after a good rain. Definitely could use more gravel and better driveways. During our time there, they made many improvements with more to come. I would love to go back and see the end result. The bathrooms were musty and could use an upgrade. And it would look better if a couple of old vehicles parked around our campsite were moved. I would return to this country campground. We camped at The Rock RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park has an attractive setting with large grassy areas and trees. There was a cattle grazing area just to the west of the RV park, but no manure odors. There are two restrooms, one with three toilets in a tenting area and a single toilet more in the RV area (checking men’s toilets). Toilets are very basic, but clean. There is one men’s shower and woman’s shower, again very basic, but with heater and carpet on the floor. There are a number of long term rv’s, but no trash around them. I think the main source of income is events, such as music and car shows. Music is in a large weathered wood barn, and I suggest parking away from the barn if any musical events are scheduled while you are there. I parked in space 32 during a musical event (local talent performing for a charity), and music could be heard, but not loud. Park web site didn’t list any specific events, but owner said he uses Facebook (which I don’t have). There are no fire rings or tables in the RV area; owner says people steal them when he is away. When I arrived on Saturday afternoon, I could not find anyone to collect fees and assign a space. I attempted to telephone the park three times, once earlier in the day and twice when I arrived, but could not talk to anyone. However, there is a self-registration booth as you enter the camping area. I picked up an envelope, selected a site, set up, completed the paperwork, wrote a check, and put the envelope in a slot in the building near the envelopes. This approach was fine with the owner. Even though there was an event, there were plenty of empty camping sites. Overnight costs were $25 for a 50A site, $20 for a 30A site, and $10 for sites more suitable for tents with no hookups, except a 15/20A outlet, like you would see at your home (but prices may be higher for certain events or dates per park data). RV sites were full hookup. I previous reviewer thought there would be much mud after a heavy rain, but I don’t agree. We parked on grass with a little gravel. There is no wifi (but my Verizon JetPack access point had a good signal). GPS coordinates for entrance are N33.96996, W85.01760. We stayed there two nights in early October. We camped at The Rock RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here 2 nights. It was very peaceful and pet friendly. They probably have a lot of activity here in the summer time and have done a lot of improvements to this park. I wanted to drink my coffee in one of the many swings they had placed around the park, but unfortunately I had injured my ankle so I was not able to. If you need a place to just chill and soak up the pine needle smell this is your place (in March anyway). There are several people who live full time but a campground has to support themselves. I also recommend the laundromat in town as a good place to wash clothes. We didn't use the shower facilities. The spots were going to be extremely muddy when we left but we pulled out before the storm hit. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Thank you for our peaceful stay. We would return again.

Price reflects monthly rate broken down. Very kind staff. Very flexible and helpful. We stayed here two months as we prepared to begin full timing traveling the country. Staff were great to us! Hookups aren't always where you might think they should be. There is no playground or anything, but there are great big fields and a fully stocked fishing pond that my kids loved!! As the previous reviewer stated, the picture the website paints isn't necessarily what you might find, but if you are looking for a quiet place with open sites and friendly folks....this works great! The sites are largely occupied by full timers who are working in the area. Lots of construction workers. Most of those are in the higher sections. Lower sections (B area down by the office) are where the vacationers (and us) stay. We moved our rig just between the large barns up on the hill toward the back. No shade there like we had down below, but the sunsets were amazing and the kids just stepped out into a huge 'yard' to play ball, etc! Rockmart is a great town with a farmers market, adorable ice cream shop, silver comet trail, skydiving, etc. We enjoyed our stay here much more than we anticipated! We camped at The Rock RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The good: very friendly and helpful owner; provided us a 50A to 30A adapter at no charge. Location is less than a mile from the Silver Comet Trail; my wife and I were looking for a few good days of cycling on the Trail. The not-so-good: the campground, during the time of our visit, seemed to be something of a work-in-progress; the website painted an picture quite different from what we discovered upon arrival. Entry signs are unclear and confusing. Sites and roads are gravel and leveling was a minor headache. No Wi-Fi or cable TV available at our site (a 50 Amp site), and the hookups themselves are about 20 ft. away from the actual site itself. The brochure stated that alcohol was not allowed in the camp, as it was a "family" camp; however, I don't believe a camp owner can dictate whether one consumes alcohol within the RV (we certainly did). A significant number of sites appeared to be occupied by full-time residents. No online reservations are available, and the owner does not accept credit cards (luckily I had enough cash available to cover the stay). Overall, it seems this RV park has considerable potential, but has yet to realize it. If one is looking for quick access to the Silver Comet Trail, this camp is perfect (the only one I know of along the entire length of the Silver Comet/Chief Ladiga trail). Otherwise, for this area of Georgia, this camp would not be my first choice. We camped at The Rock RV Park in a Motorhome.
