9 RV Parks near Tallapoosa, Georgia

This park is within l mile of I20 and close to several restaurants and fuel stations. The park is filled with long term people. We called and made a reservation for a 50 amp 2 days prior to arrival. There appears to be only 3 or 4 spots for transits and not every spot is 50 amp. We were here for 2 nights, had a pull through but the roads are narrow and the spot was up a steep incline so we disconnected before attempting to pull the home and tow up the hill. The lady in the office was very nice. They accept cash and check only. They did charge us $2 extra when we went to retrieve our car from our nearby friends' home but that was ok. We are right next to the highway but our well insulated rig heard no road noise. We would stay here again but don't show up without a reservation.. - leciel19

We chose this park for an overnight because it was so close to our route and inexpensive, but the roads were narrow and steep; steep enough our braking system in the towed locked up; overnight pull through was just barely big enough for our motorhome and tow; parked right next to a fairly busy highway with fast traffic. Park was clean and well kept. Our site for the motorhome was level. Would be a good place for a smaller RV. - wheelen jv

Very narrow, paved roads entering and older RV park. One of there phone lines actually struck something on top of my rig. Found a pull through and it barely fit my 40' MH and toad. All of the pull through sites are on the small side. Leveled up, put the slides out, hooked up to the 30 amp power and my power management system immediately sensed a brown out condition and started the generator. We packed up and left. Won't go back. - Pjoe

Since I was just staying overnight, and had no children to enjoy all of the activities, the price was a little too high but for a family planning to stay a couple of days, there always seemed to be things for the kids to do. Although the sites are level they are terraced, so that your utility hook-ups are down a short embankment from your trailer. - Scldg

Just an overnight. It is a bit off the Hwy, but very quiet. Would be a great place for kids, of which there were many. - Fox Mountain

Had read and heard from others that Jellystone is great when camping with kids. We usually camp state parks but I realized this would not be that kind of experience. The pool is nice and other than overflowing dumpster on the weekend, the park is clean and facilities nice. What surprised me is how many of the sites are filled with long-term residents - they appear to be construction type workers, mostly men alone but some with families. I have no issues with them - hard-working men who left early, came back late, and were unobtrusive neighbors. My issue is that a mostly residential/ working park doesn't fit the advertised image of a family fun vacation park. I would not come back here despite friendly helpful staff - it felt like we were trying to vacation in someone's driveway. Back to the state parks for us! - Leanne N

This was a stop over while traveling thru GA. The place was a tad difficult to find as the entrance is hidden coming down the back road. Be on the look out before the GPS says you have arrived. Navigation was fine thru the park and our site (number 7 was fine). We arrived past closing so make sure you know what your site number is before you get there - they forgot to leave our paper work out for us. We would stop again if need be. For the area it was good. - FrancisandRenee

A great park to spend a couple of days or more. Family oriented with a beach, boat rental, fishing, volleyball, miniature golf and paved walking trails. Lots of day users, especially on the weekends, but not overly so. The restrooms are clean but Spartan. The actual camping area is in a gully, so getting TV with antenna is difficult. Because of all of the trees, satellite users may have a similar problem. No sewers at the sites, but a free dump station is available on the way out. Lots of shade, but sites are tight, and with only a couple of exceptions, offer no privacy. Big Rigs might do better elsewhere. WiFi is available on the office porch, as are large, comfortable rocking chairs. Dogs are OK. BTW, this park is now owned and operated by the County, not the State. Would return. - Rusty Tailpipe

An older campground with gravel sites. Some sites are pretty small and hard to get a big rig into, there is not much privacy as all the sites are located in one area. Nice walking trail around lake. No WIFI or dish access due to trees. AT&T cellphone service was 1 bar 4G, to slow to be of much use. - Ruffin It

Have stayed here many times. Well maintained, has clean grounds and facilities. There are even facilities for equine camping! Lots of maintained trails. Very quiet. Shaded by mature trees. Access to boat ramp. Well patrolled, and clearly well cared for. Very family friendly. - Birdies

This is a nice out of the way campground. It is worth the extra drive. Fairly level sites, with shade. Lots of places to hike. It has a nice swimming area too. No cell service until we drove out of the park and about 3 miles away. The Host was very friendly. - John & Joanna Prince

The is one of the nicest campgrounds we have camped at. The sites are paved and most are level. The sites include a lantern post, picnic table, and campfire ring. The bathhouse is clean and has soap and towel dispensers, and one large shower. The campground hosts are very nice. This campground has a beach and swimming are, and a trail around the lake. Easy access from Hwy.78 near Fruithurst, Alabama. - Dixie23

We came in after hours and paid for two nights, but wound up only staying one. We were attracted to this park because it said it was pet friendly, and we have two dogs. We set up in a spot that was not marked as reserved. The office don't open till noon or evening. I was at office 2 times in morning and once in evening when was told my site was reserved and had to move. No reserve stickers on post at my site. The other grassy spots I could of took chance of getting stuck, was uneven, and low branches hang to knock off my ac. I asked for my money back for 2nd night and was told no then told me I give you 10 bucks back. I told them to keep it and moved out. We was not happy and felt mistreated. - Matt_Susan63801

Based on the web page photos, this used to be a great place but the owner wants to sell and obviously could care less now. Although I had pre-registered, no information was provided when I didn't arrive within the 4 hours the office is open. Had to reach through the weeds to connect my water, never saw the owner (who does own a beautiful home right on site) and the stinky trash cans hadn't been emptied recently (but then with only 4 of us in the entire park I guess they figured they didn't need to empty them since they weren't overflowing).
Wouldn't even recommend it just for an overnight stay. Don't believe the website. - Scldg

I just needed a place to sleep while transporting my newly purchased RV from California to South Carolina. I found this place via a highway sign. At the top of the exit ramp the sign did not indicate which way to turn so I pulled into a gas station and called. The owner answered and told me to go north. Upon arrival the owner met me and collected my fee. She was very friendly and gave me directions to a very good Mexican restaurant.
The park itself is poorly managed. The owner indicated that it is for sale and she wants to sell it and retire. It was more work that she thought. Here it is, peak summer season, and there are only about 5 campers. I can see why. The grass could have been shorter and the place could use some weeding. My spot was under a large tree, which scraped my roof, and I was worried what would happen in a storm. When I opened the electrical box for spot 5 the outlet did not match my 30 amp plug. However spot 6 was vacant so I plugged into that box, which had the correct socket. The spot itself was a mix of gravel and grass so it was hard to keep my shoes clean (my outside shower is on the opposite side of my entry door). The utilities worked and it was quiet so I got a good nights sleep. - zuckerwar

Loved this quiet little park, not far from I-20, and a state park well maintained and being developed. Park about 7 years old, but still expanding. GREAT paved trails down to Little Tallapoosa, shaded hiking. Sites were fairly open, and several pull thru sites. We had a good site, #13. Some sites are reserved for Motor Homes only. - Damon-Becky

Very well laid out park. Some sites are more level than others. Very nice paved walking trails through the surrounding woods. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. - D&K

Nightly rate reflects monthly stay. This park has a limited number of sites that are available for long-term stays for full timers like us or contractors working in the area. Having said that it is important to know that it is not obvious to the casual observer that there are any long term setups. The park is pristine, almost new looking. Because of this and the excellent trails and beautiful setting, the RV side of the park is almost always full. Make your reservation early. Also, the park opened an equistrian section in Sept. of 2016. This added 10 very large RV sites (no sewer) that you can use if the full hookup sites are all taken. We stayed in the equestrian section for a couple months and hired a honey wagon service for dumping the tanks. When a long term spot opened up we moved to the full hookup section. Everything was perfect except for satellite reception. It is very difficult to find a gap in the trees unless in a short term spot in the "infield" of the loop. - jperry29

Nice campground. No hook ups available at all. Sites are not really laid out, just park where you want for the most part. We parked right on the creek and with the mountains on both sides of you it is a beautiful place. Bike riding on the Chief Ladiga Trail and hiking on the Pinhoti tail or maybe a kayak or canoe ride down the creek. Very nice and super dark at night. Great star gazing! Lots of church groups and boy scouts. We will go back and hookups are in the future although I'm not sure that would really be a good thing. - Bird-Freak

This not yet completed park is located in a beautiful valley between Terrapin Creek and the Chief Ladiga Trail (Rail to Trail, Anniston, Al to Atlanta, GA. and has spectacular views. It is very private, but easily accessible by any size rig. Bath houses and office are complete and park is generally laid out. Utilities will be in by Spring 2011. Terrapin Creek, Chief Ladiga Trail and the Pinhoti trail are accessible from the park property. We biked the Chief Ladiga to the AL/GA state line where it connects with the Silver Comet Trail that leads on through GA to the outskirts of Atlanta. The campground is open for dry camping and will remain available during construction. Easily the most beautiful campsite we have ever seen. Bill is very accommodating. It is 7 miles to Piedmont, AL, where most anything you need is available. Don't miss this one. - houstown

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. - Kamnel

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. - rick r

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. - Loralie

No one there to check us in, yet we had a confirmed reservation. Called and left a message we were there. We picked a site and started to set up. One leg of the electric kept tripping off, water was a brown/grey. Water did clear up after running. Electric concerned us and there was not any one to consult. There no other campers there either.
Place has potential under the right management. - Hey Jude

This is a hard review to write, because there are things that I love about this park and things that I hate. Lets start off with the bad, because if you can handle it you should definitely stay here.
The road into the park is a very long single lane. It is incredibly narrow and a mix of uneven gravel and sporadic paved bits. It is bumpy and there are too many pot holes to count. Your underside will probably get scraped and branches will likely drag across your rig like it did ours.
The bathrooms are pretty gross. There are lots of cobwebs and dead bugs. I peeked at the showers and they were just as bad. I didn't rate them incredibly low, because I can admit that it could be worse. They were at least free from human-specific dirtiness.
The lots are very soft dirt and aren't particularly level because of this. We were able to make do, though.
Now, you are probably wondering about the good. Well...the location is absolutely lovely. It is incredibly shady and pretty. They are walking trails, a farm, an open field, goats, bunnies, and even a peacock. There is also a lake that isn't part of the park, but it is all so nice to look at. It is a gorgeous park nature wise. It feels so incredibly relaxing. All you hear is nature and quiet. I'm guessing a lot of people don't know about this place, because there weren't very many people here, so your neighbors are very spaced out.
Despite how rough it was getting in, I would totally come back. It is affordable and absolutely beautiful. - toocoolfortulle

Gated community. We love rustic parks but this was a little too rustic for us. The main road is red clay and gravel. It was raining lightly when we arrived and the RV lost traction going up the hill on the drive into the camping area. It rained heavily during the night so next day leaving our rear-end diesel pusher lost traction again going up the hill. The shower/bathrooms were very toasty and could use a good sweeping but otherwise ok. Friendly service by older gentleman checking us in. We only used water and electric. Did use pumping station for b/w. Great place for locals, a little off the beaten path for the overnight traveler with a big rig. Will not be returning. - RetNav
