Better than we expected! Large and clean sites with plenty of space. We stayed at #26 and it was flat. Sites closer to the stream are smaller, but there is still plenty of room for a fifth wheel or large travel trailer. People are supper friendly and bath houses were clean. It was quiet and there is space for any size camper in the park. Large swim area and a small lake for small boat with no motors as well. The only thing is the bath house near the circle with lake views is not updated. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

MH's towing heed the RR warning if coming in via the signs. Very sharp incline, there are a couple of big lots near the park turnoff on US-278 for unhooking. The CG here has lots of nice level sites, mostly back-ins. Paid $28 less 20% senior discount, plus $1 for 10 cable TV stations. No Verizon cell or broadband in CG, but there was a usable signal near the office. We had a really big level site. Only downside is the CG exit and dump stations are on the same narrow road. So you could be stuck in a dump line if only trying to go somewhere. The golf course was overloaded on a Friday; we drove off the course after 5 hours and having 4 more holes to play. Not acceptable at all. Laura Walker and Little Ocmulgee are much better options. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest parks in Georgia...close to cute towns like Rutledge and Madison, Ga. Lake is loaded with bass and brim. Popular with horse folks. Some of the nicest sites feature two and three tiers - a place to park, a lower level for tents and chairs, and another level for picnic table and fire rings. Very friendly staff, well-secluded sites. Highest possible rating for a state park... We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice State Park. Our site faced the lake where we caught a few small fish. The sites were well designed and nicely landscaped. We went on one of the weekends that the observatory was open but unfortunately weather prevented us from seeing anything. We didn’t see much to do in the area. There was absolutely no reception for Verizon. Campground does offer cable TV for $1 more per day. Probably wouldn’t stay here again. Not that the campground was that bad, but there are many others that have more activities and more things in the area to do. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice state park. The staff is friendly, both paid and volunteers. We stayed 7/2 for 3 nights and again 7/9 for 1 night. Our first stay was in #6. Very nice except the cable did not work but did get a refund. On the 9th, we stayed in #13 which is a very nice, long, and private pull thru. I would have rated it higher except for two things: It is hard to understand their signs and we drove past the entrance the first time because it didn't specify it was for camping. The other is that there is virtually no cell phone signal. You have to go up to the golf course, about a mile, to get any reliable service. The fee is $28/night, but mention you are 62 or older and you get a $5.00 discount. Would stay there again. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Camped in site 47 which was down in the valley but very secluded. Great park with lots to do in the surrounding communities. Staff is very helpful and friendly, including the camp hosts. Facilities are a little bit older but well kept and clean. We camp here often as it is close to home, yet we can still enjoy the outdoors. We will return again soon.

This is a lovely, hilly, wooded campground with good spacing between level sites. Some sites are on the creek, some are on the lake, and some are “just” in the woods. We love it when deer come up to our campsite. Usually we overnight here on our way from North Carolina to Florida but have on occasion stayed several nights to explore historic towns in the area: Rutledge, Madison, and Eatonton. Price is for seniors with Georgia State Park pass and includes an extra $1 for cable TV. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

This park was good for us because it is close to home. And it was good for checking our camper out. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I don't know how the last reviewer stayed for $10/night. I'm a senior and got a $5 discount off the regular rate of $25. It is a beautiful park with a great golf course. No sewer which is why I didn't give it a 9 or 10. It's nice they have cable TV available because there are so many trees that satellite reception is nill. Verizon cell phone coverage is very limited. We had to drive to the golf course or into Rutledge to get reception. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

A great state park in a wonderful location. It's close proximity to the historic town of Madison is a great convenience. Many of the campsites have recently received some sprucing up with new gravel and utility connectors, and most are well spaced with plenty of room and privacy. There is a lot to do at the park when you're finished touring the local historic cities (Rutledge is nice in addition to Madison). Highly recommended!

This is part of the Georgia State park system and could easily be mistaken for a high end private campground. It is absolutely beautiful, spacious sites and immaculate. The bathrooms are old and could use a makeover. The golf course is used by the pros for practice before Augusta. It looks fabulous and I wish I had my clubs with me. Make it a destination. There are also camping cottages and horse facilities. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a great time camping at Hard Labor Creek campground. The sites were level, shady and well maintained. The bathrooms were old but clean, which is all you can ask for. There is not a lot of things for kids to do. The observatory is open one night a month. If you can plan your trip for one of the open houses at the observatory I would highly recommend it. We were able to see Jupiter, the moon and several binary stars. Very educational. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Great campground. Level sites, clean rest rooms and showers. Too bad the lake is down due to the drought, great lake sites. Close to shopping and Interstate 20. GA State University runs an observatory at the park once a month. Unfortunately, we were camping during a monsoon and we were not able to attend. We plan to go back during the warmer weather for golf and swimming. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Lovely, thoughtfully designed park typical of Georgia State Parks. Sites are all marked for tent or RV so we shouldn't see the guy with the bicycle and miniature tent in the 60 foot pull through. Some tight turns on interior roads. We will go there again. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great camp for horseback riding, offering a separate camping site for riders. Camp sites are well maintained. Bathrooms and showers are very clean. Camp Host was great and very informitive. Great park for hiking with over 22 miles of trails. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.
