45 Parks near Suches, Georgia
Jul 2013 - $35.00
Our second ever campground experience, and wow, is it different from our expectations. It is nestled in a corner of nowhere, up and down a winding road from Dahlonega, 15 miles past Suches, which is a spot in the road. But, this place is quiet and very unusual. The hosts are very accommodating and friendly. The campground has two full, stocked kitchens that campers can use at no charge. They rely on honor jars for supplies used. There is a big screen TV with Dish in the club house. Also, games to play, fishing in the stream down from an early 1800s grist mill (yes, you can catch your dinner), well kept grounds, and shower house with supplied toiletries and towels There is coffee in the clubhouse in the morning. These are all pluses. Oh yes, there are two each guineas, turkeys, and bantams running about. The sites require some leveling, and with heavy rain, can get a little soggy. Gravel roads, grassy pads. Cell phone is nil, but Wi-Fi is free; athough, not very fast at times. We would do it again. Nice base to see surrounding area if you like to drive the mountain roads. - barefootbear

A quiet and relaxing place, a good place to take a book to read down by the stream or beside the mill lake. I caught rainbow trout in the stream beside my campsite. They have a large community room with a great view of the old mill, the community room has a complete kitchen with refrigerator and freezer for campers' use. Restrooms were all clean. Managers were very friendly and went out of their way, even setting up an awning for outdoor cooking in the rain. Call for best route to camp if pulling a large trailer. - Ray N.GA

This has to be the boring-est place in the world to camp, absolutely nothing to do but sit in the campground. - CamperGeorgia

Nightly rate is based on a week's stay. This is a quiet, rustic, no frills park with back-in sites on a hill that give good views. The host is a real nice guy. Campground is about 10 miles west of Suches and 20 miles east of Morganton. If you have a large coach, Rt 60 can be very nerve racking after a long day of driving. It has a LOT of curves, some of them blind curves. I came in from the east (Suches) and went out toward the west (Morganton). The eastern side is worse; narrower road, no shoulder, and older road surface until you get several miles west of Suches. Good thing 60 is light on traffic during the week. Wifi was adequate for email and Facebook, but no streaming. No antenna tv and no cable. If you need tv, you need to have a satellite. Very good water pressure. If you're a motorcyclist, this is a good place to stay. Great motorcycling blacktop roads and forest service roads for dual sport riders. No fenced dog area, but there is lots of room to walk your dog, just remember to pick up after them. Showers are not too close to RV or tent sites. Wildcat Store/diner was closed during our stay. Nearest Walmart seems to be in Ellijay or Blueridge. My TomTom put me on a forest service road to get back to the park from Murphy, NC, despite me telling it to avoid unpaved roads. GPS' don't know what is paved and what is not and you could end up in the woods. - TH travelers

We were here for three months. The camp staff are among the friendliest people I have ever met. There are two fishing ponds on the premises and quality trout fishing nearby. I imagine there are quality hunting opportunities nearby also. With two of the major activities being hunting and fishing the other two have to be hiking and motorcycle riding. Many trails in the local area as well as many waterfalls and world class motorcycle roads. Other than that the attraction to Wildcat is peace and quiet. It's 20 miles to the nearest grocery store so plan ahead. - kanem

This is a National Park. It is for primitive camping. No thrills. On a well stocked trout fish creek. Located down the road from Chattahoochee-Oconee National Fish Hatchery, which is educational and fun. It is a great family environment. There are no forms of entertainment other than nature. A great place to fish, camp and hike. Very relaxing, surrounded by great people. Coopers Creek Store has everything you need to fish and the best boiled peanuts in town! - TheEnterprise

No campfires were allowed due to dry conditions. Roads are tight for large trailers. Nice spacing for most sites. Store contained essentials. AT&T cell service was spotty. No cable service or broadcast channels. - FreedomExp

Well located and beautiful state park in the heart of Georgia's northern mountains. Vogel State Park surrounds a gorgeous small lake and is within easy drives to the historic gold mining town of Dahlonega, the charming "Bavarian" town of Helen and to the highest point in Georgia--Brasstown Bald. That said, the road into, through and out of the campground includes some very tight turns and relatively steep grades that might be a tough for large rigs. (We were towing a 29' TT) Our site was very nice sized, flat, and equipped with 30A elec. and water. WiFi did not work in our area and TV reception via a power antenna was minimal. However, the beautifully wooded surrounding and central location made up for this inconvenience. We would return and encourage others to consider this state park as a great base for exploration of the mountains in Northern Georgia. - MissouriBird

This is a beautiful state park in the north Georgia mountains. One of my favorite, if not the favorite, state parks anywhere. Friendly staff, largest campsite we have ever had anywhere next to a stream and it was pretty quiet even though filled over the weekend. We camped here around 35 years ago and since then it has only gotten better over the years. Nice camp office and store. Love this place. We were warned that a black bear and her cub had been spotted in the campground, but we never saw them. The famous Apalachian trail passes right under the portico of the building and the store has tons of backpacking supplies and clothes. Neat place on Neal's Gap. - bfisher003

Site was very roomy with picnic table. Backed up to green grass and woods with a stream. Beautiful view of mountains. Wonderful pool, lake and horse back riding and bicycles available to use. Very friendly. Hated to leave. - ThisIsHowWeRoll

This property is absolutely huge and gorgeous with beautiful mountain views & well manicured grounds, usual amenities including horse trail rides. There is also a $5/day "resort usage fee". The horse corrals & pastures are beautifully laid out. These amenities are quit spread out over this property and is quit a hike to use them without using a car or golf cart (not available to rent). This is an "owners" park. There are mostly owner occupied concrete sites. The "owners" rules apparently allow swapping of sites on a lottery basis resulting in occupied sites where the owner's can leave their RV'S on site unoccupied for long periods & "swap" to another when their time is up. As a C2C member, we ended up getting an "overflow" gravel site with no sewer hook up, no picnic table or fire ring and only 30 amps for an 11 day stay (despite our C2C reservation submission for 50 amps). These sites were also adjacent to the rodeo arena & small stable pasture (which wasn't a problem while we were there as they weren't being used). I want back to inquire, I was told that, that was all that was available for non-members.
Although we made it work and the property is beautiful, we probably would not say here again due to the office staff not being very informative, indifferent & quick to get us out of the office. - rracer5

We were given a paved full hook up spot that is very nice. Everything is well maintained and was mowed recently. The lodge is nice but limited as it is used mostly for weddings and events. There is a large pool on site and stables for horse riding. We accessed the wifi in the comfortable leather sofas in the entrance lobby. Check in was handled by an octogenarian who cared more about getting the payment than actually giving me a map and showing me how to get to my spot. They ask you to sign a waiver for horse riding which we didn't do but it is available Thursday - Sunday. All in all a serene spot and chance to see the waterfalls and wineries in the area. caution, very narrow roads on the approach to R Ranch on Yahoola to Stonegap Rd. We passed another rig and were almost forced off the road it was so narrow. - Djinfl

This is a very nice upscale park in a beautiful area. The sites are spacious and paved and the office people are very friendly.
There is a lot to do in the area and plenty of restaurants, grocery stores and a Walmart just a few minutes away.
The only negative is that to access their cable TV you have to be able to plug a box into your TV. That is very difficult for most motorhomes as the TV's are built in.
Overall, excellent experience and we will definitely return. - hobodandee

We have stayed here twice and must disagree with reviews I have read. This place is immaculate, the manager went above and beyond to make sure our stay was top notch. They are growing in size but it never bothered us as noise was minimal. Sites are perfect level and large. We ride a motorcycle and did not have a problem keeping our trailer on our site. Everyone there was friendly. We went from a motor home back to travel trailer, if you want a class A only campground go somewhere else. Weight room awesome, spa, sauna, massage chairs all at your disposal. Huge cabin to shoot pool, or just watch TV and enjoy a pizza ( my favorite). If your looking for stuff for children they have tennis courts, but so much to do very close to campground. motorcycle riding in this area is so nice you can't find a bad road. I give Crossing Creek a 10. - Daniel Huber

We stayed here 3 nights, had the park mostly to ourselves. It's just getting started and they give no discounts to anyone, which surprised me as I was directed to them through FMCA. The sites were all cement, but the cable was not easy to hook up. they gave us a box to plug into our TV, but ours are mounted inside and therefore we can't get to the plug, had to run the cable through one of out windows. they are selling lots, people are friendly, but probably won't go back because of the cost. No one in the office on week-ends so we weren't sure where to leave the cable box when we left, no tables or fire ring..do offer a clubhouse. - gmasharp

We stayed here about 5 years ago. Most of the sites are permanent locals who keep TT’s or Fivers on site for weekend and seasonal use. Bath rooms were very clean. Sites were gravel. Folks were friendly. Our site was a little tight getting in and out, but no real problems. Lots of great restaurants add things to do in area. We stayed 3 days and would use it again. Vogel state park is frequently full during the summer months. - Florida Native

We've stayed in this park twice, both times in October, to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. There are only a few spots available for short term campers; most sites are leased, and well maintained. Reservations are recommended. The roads in the park are rough and somewhat narrow. Some spots take some maneuvering to get into. The park has a very nice large screened area with picnic tables for large gatherings. The washers and dryers worked fine. If you enjoy reading, you'll like their book exchange. In the screened area, there are book shelves were campers take and leave books. The park managers are very helpful. They keep a close eye on what's going on in the park. It is a convenient location; about one mile from a brand new WalMart. - BettyJ

WOW... And that's not a good wow.
Hillbilly, Backwoods, Redneck. This about sums it up, but I'll try to paint a little more precise picture.
The idea of a family run small campground along a river with a big grassy field sounded appealing. Upon arrival, I couldn't find the place to check in. I looped around the muddy trail, I mean road, twice and asked 2 different people. Well, it was tucked way in the woods and it's an 80 year old dump of a house. I was already having second thoughts but gave her the additional $60 and went to our campsite.
This place had "campsites" all over the place, like they are just tossed around. We got to the site and it was shaded and halfway decent, until I went to hook up. I had already set up my popup and then I realized my power cord wouldn't reach. Wouldn't you know they put the water and the electric on opposite sides of the campsite! My extension cord blew the outlet and the owner had to come install a new one. After we got all settled and I physically moved my popup 3 feet by hand to reach the outlet, it wasn't horrible, just very rustic. Bathrooms were a cinder block building with see thru plastic ceiling that looked 3rd world. It was grungy and nasty, worst restroom I've been in in years anywhere.
PROS- River, field to play in
CONS- overpriced, poorly run, horrible site layout, nasty bathrooms, needs serious updating
A side note on the "cabins". I don't even know where to start. Our family rented two of them. One was a one room building with a bed and a sink. The other one was, well, unique. It was literally a 40 year old travel trailer camper that had been built around into a cabin. It had 2 beds inside the camper, a table a couch and a small bathroom. No such thing as building code here. Way overpriced and just plain weird.
My advice, stay far away from this place and think about the state park just up the road. - Bkell1978

According to the owners, the campground has been family owned and operated for about 50 years. They are very nice, extremely dedicated, and very helpful. The campground is very simple and rustic. It is a small campground but quaint and a little old-fashioned. The pros are: It is very family oriented with lots of things to do for children such as tubing, fishing and playing games such as volleyball, badminton, and flag football on a big grassy area in the center of the campground. It is great for tent camping, popup campers, travel trailers up to 30 feet and small motorhomes. The campsites are shady and most are by the river. The cons are: Roads are not very well maintained as they are very bumpy and rough. Some of the tree limbs need to be cut for better access to campsites. Also, some areas are very overgrown with brush that needs attention. Bathrooms are very outdated and shower curtains need a mildew cleaning. Otherwise, the bathrooms were clean. The pull thru sites are not really great as it is a very small and crowded area. There are no sewer hookups for rvs but there is a dump station. We stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed the cool nights by the river with a campfire for one night. Overall, we had a pleasant experience with the owners, campsite, and surrounding area. We would stay there again in the future. If you are used to a more high class campground, this would not be for you. However, if you like clean fresh air, rivers, sandy and graveled sites, shady sites, and a getting back to nature type experience...then this is your place to camp. - pink51

Interior roads were in terrible condition: muddy and no drainage to speak of. The pull-thru meant that if someone got there 1st, they pulled forward of you and now someone comes from behind and now two rigs are locked in. Tenting on the river was probably nice. Restrooms are dated and no GFI in the shower room area. Sites overgrown and too many yellow jackets for us. Picnic tables were rotten and couldn't be used. Should have known...they had vacancies on Labor day weekend. - ncpiper

Our first trip to Turner Campsites and our family loved it. Very nice camping lots that are very wide and spacious with full hook ups. We camped on the river side and it was so nice to hear the water rolling all evening while sitting outside by the campfire. Our children enjoyed the game room and playground also the tubing you can do right behind the camper. Trout fishing was the best. Also a cute little general store just outside the campground that had a grill dining area inside so you don't have to drive so far into town. Never met the owner just the host in charge and he was so friendly. We are definitely going to keep this campground as one of our family favorites. They do have strict pet rules but was no big issue. All in all this is what camping is suppose to be about no luxuries as far as Wi-Fi, swimming pools, paved roads. A place to enjoy what nature offers. - afamilywholovestocamp

We have camped here before. Nice campground, not much to do here but good for relaxing. Only complaint that they charge extra for more than 2 people, considering most families have children. Not much to offer for that extra charge. We would camp here again. - scottfamily
Oct 2010 - $34.00
Pros: Friendly staff, beautiful area, fairly roomy campsites, sewage hookups at the campsites and fairly level. Cons: No fire rings on the sites that are not on the water, a very busy highway is 200 ft from campground and charges extra for more than 2 people. Overall I like the campground but the lack of fire rings in the off water sites forced us to stay on the water and pay extra (we needed the fire to cook). I will stay here again. - walterwegozz
