We only stayed over-night here and the site we had was a pull through. The park had re-done all the camp sites last year--50 amp, water and Cable TV on all sites and sewer on 1-10. Sites 1-4 are pull through. But the sites are not necessarily level but the park host advised that they are going to address that. Very bad cell service. Neither 3G or 4G were spotty. We were able to text but it was slow. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was great, they have redone the campground, both bath houses are new and there are 10 full hookup sites 1-10, every site that we checked had 30 and 50 amp. All the wood around the campsites is new. Park rangers were very nice and helpful. Golf course was very nice. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Took my two grandsons for a 2 night stay at this State Park near my home. The park has recently undergone a large renovation and in my opinion it was tax money well spent. Campsites have been upgraded with new gravel, roads repaved, underbrush cleared, etc. Park has lots to offer. We played real golf, putt putt, and the boys went swimming at the beach area. A few sites added sewer hookups and the cable was being re-done while we were here. My only complaints were no wifi or cell phone service, and my pull thru site was a little off level. If you have stayed here before, give it another try. Much improved. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful site but regular campground and all facilities closed for construction. 11 sites available in equestrian area. No sewage or dump site. Hard to understand signs and maps Host and ranger very helpful. Construction completion maybe done July. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
