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

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

Love this State Park! Went for fall color hiking and unfortunately the rains came and washed out much of our fun. I travel with my two dogs who really didn't care about the rain but sniffed every inch of the Park. Got some short hikes in. Visitor Center staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. While not advertised, I picked up their WiFi signal when close to the VC. - Curmudgeon John

One of the prettiest state campgrounds we've ever stayed at. Heavily wooded with sites right on a mountain creek. Nice lake within the campground with a nice waterfall that's a very easy hike. Campground also has cabins in case you want to invite friends that don't normally camp. Playground for the kids, but they also seem to play a lot in the creek! Also has a small miniature golf course.
The negatives that we found were: The campground is about 20 minutes from the closest town with decent shopping. It's a pretty hilly/windy road coming in from the south. No TV or cellphone access from our campsite, but they do have Wi-Fi access up by the park office/camp store. - Denny Johnson

This was our first multi-day trip with our new travel trailer although we've been to Vogel many times for day hiking. The park continues to undergo renovation, and the updates to campsites are especially nice. The campsites are well laid out and shaded. I think the best part about Vogel is the immediate access to several hiking trails in the area. If you're a serious day hiker, you'll love the Coosa Backcountry Trail (13 miles) or the trail up to Blood Mountain. You can't beat the scenery and wilderness recreation in the area. Verizon cell coverage is decent but Wi-Fi is almost nonexistent unless you're close to the office. Blairsville is close for shopping and eating. You could easily spend a week at Vogel and never get bored. Vogel is a great base camp location for hiking, sightseeing, and even road biking. The area is well known for road biking. - tripster

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

The first warning about this park is that the gated entry to the camping area is very narrow. It is a gate controlled by the office, and a guard is there at night to open if for you. Go slowly, as there is about 6" on either side of your mirror to slip through. The next thing to notice is that there are lots of speed bumps on the long narrow road to the back camping area. Once you make it to your site you will find that they are good size and not too close together. When we finally got to our site, there was someone camped there already that had no plans to move. We got a different site down the road. Many owners or permanents here. If I came back to the area, I would look around for a different option. - SargeW

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 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

Great RV park. Beautiful scenery. All facilities very clean. Large paved sites. No cable. Wireless internet was strong. Satellite had no issues. A lot of open area to walk dogs. Very helpful staff. Free spa services included massage chairs, sauna, steam room, excellent exercise equipment. Luxurious and clean showers. There is a pool (closed for the season) and hot tub. Very quiet. Friendly people. Clean, well-kept park that is growing. Lots for sale or rent. You won't go wrong staying here. We will visit as often as we can. - GatorGirl58

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

The people there are wonderful. We arrived very late, 10 pm, and were having difficulties finding our camp site and there was staff there to help us. They have a great office/gift store/store. Our grandchildren were with us, ages 4-12, and we forgot pool toys. There were toys in the store and priced very reasonably. Campsite 124 has plenty of shade. There are numerous bath house throughout the property so one does not have to walk far. The bath house are set up as "private bathrooms". Each room contains a shower, sink, and toilet. They rooms are a little tight and could use a bit of updating, but have lots of hooks for clothes and towels. The pool is very well maintained and they had new lounge chairs. My husband and I would definitely stay again. - Living the Life

This campground straddled a dirt road. We were in the very first campsite as you drive into the area and were satisfied with our site. It was fairly private. It was narrow. We were not able to set up our canopy but that didn't prevent us from enjoying our experience here. We were right on the stream and could hear the water rushing. Other sites were very cramped and close to the road. If we had been in the next few sites in the campground we would've been very disappointed in our experience. There were some sites that were in a circle that appeared to be a bit larger and were accommodating larger rigs. The bathrooms were fine. The pool area looked well-kept but was closed for the season. The manager/owner was very nice. I would recommend asking for site #1 if you are in a tent or popup. If you are in a larger rig you should call to make sure you can get in and out of the campground. If you are looking at the sites that are along the road be prepared to be very close to the traffic. I'm guessing that some tents were less than ten feet from the road. - Henwilli

I was asked by the owner to give a review, good, bad or whatever were his words, just fair. I had an excellent time. The temperature was great, cool at night and in the mornings and warming up during the day. Pool was not open yet but he was working on opening by Memorial Day. We took the grand-kids on the Blue Ridge train during the day and the drive in at night. Also caught a couple of fish which we released. The campground store had just been expanded and looked good to me. Lots of stuff that people forget or need. The bathhouse was clean. We will come back again and I would recommend this place to others. - bphillips
