This is a state park to camp in when accessing the exceptionally lovely Tallulah Gorge. You can easily walk from the campground to the gorge (about .25 of a mile) and do all the trails. There is a south rim and north rim trail each taking about an hour to do with many overlooks that let you see spectacular gorge, falls and rapids. Dogs can come along on those trails. There is also a suspension bridge over the gorge that lets you get closer to one set of waterfalls. That is many steps down and back up again and pets are not allowed. There is a nice interpretive centre. It is possible to go to the gorge floor and to rappel and rock climb but you must get a permit and access depends on weather. There is easy access across the highway to a beach and a nice paved road to bike on the lake beyond the dam and above the gorge. We found the park staff and the campground host to be exceptionally nice and helpful. I would recommend making a reservation before arrival. That way you can drive in and park your trailer and be spared trying to drive the trailer around to the park office which is very long and narrow and twisty turns road about four miles from the campground. There are two types of campsites, red said to be for 24 foot and less rigs and green for 50ft long rigs. You can't reserve a specific site. They are first come first serve by arrival. About half the 24 foot sites are actually big enough to take longer rigs and are a mix of back in and pull through. Some of the sites are very small with a steep walk in or out, basically only good for a tent. The few 50foot sites are long and level but they are narrow and all in close rows and not so nice. There is a nice playground and open green space near the 50ft sites. As noted by others, there is one exceptionally tight hair pin turn but we were able to navigate it with our 30 foot trailer and pickup. There were no steep hills or difficulties on the roads into or around the park. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We loved this park. It is absolutely beautiful. We are more "state park" type campers, where it is quiet. We have a 42.5 foot 5th wheel. To get to our site, we had to drive through the campground. There was one hairpin turn that was a little sketchy, but we made it through just fine. Other than that, it was easy to navigate. No wi-fi, but we are OK with that. The bathroom and shower room were very warm and clean. The camp hosts were very nice. We spent Christmas here, and the hosts hung a couple candy canes on our door as a gift. Very kind. There was a little noise from nearby traffic, but it wasn't noticeable at night. The sites were easy to pull through and were fairly level. We had made reservations prior to arrival, and when we arrived, we saw that the campground was having a half off sale. They were able to refund half of our prepaid amount, which was a wonderful surprise! The only improvement we could hope for would be addition of sewer at the sites. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park staff/host not overly friendly or helpful. Never answered phone. Campground roads are very narrow with low hanging branches for our 45 foot Motorhome. Glad we unhitched toad at entrance. We chose site number 42, which was fairly level, had some low hanging branches that park maintenance came and trimmed for us. Nicely shaded until about 4 pm. Large concrete picnic table and fire ring, which we used. Did not use bath house facilities. Location within 30 minutes of Chattooga River and wineries. About an hour drive to Blue Ridge Pkwy. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites were maintained and clean, the host was very friendly and seen frequently. Additionally, noticed a blower being used to blow the fall leaves off the sites. The bathrooms were clean, except on occasion, an odor was prevalent. Showers were good.

Very tight quarters on the camp site, with little privacy while in the abode, everyone was friendly though and seemed to enjoy the campground.

Overall quiet, except for the highway noise and the active speed trap blitz in progress. Thanksgiving holidays were poignant with police sirens literally every five minutes as ticket revenue increased the local coffers.

Tallulah Gorge is stunning and truly needs to be seen and experienced first hand. The experience will remain as pleasant and need repetitive visits in the future. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice wooded 50 site park. Price was 26.00 for tents and 32.00 for rv's. Two clean bathrooms with showers. No sewer, but dump station at exit. Water and 30/50 amp at each site. Very wooded, so to get satellite to work one will need to be selective when choosing their site. The check in system allows campers to select their own site which is nice. Camp hosts sell firewood and ice ($5 & $2). There is a trail to the interpretive center where 100 permits a day are available allowing hiking to the gorge floor. Park is well maintained and sites are nice and clean. Each site has picnic table and fire ring. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Super Walmart just north on 441 for supplies. Good local type restaurants with live music on weekends and good craft beer selection in nearby Clayton. 100 permits per day issued to hike gorge floor, pick up at interpretive center by 8am.

As others have noted, this park has only recently been taken over by the state from Georgia Power. Some work has been done, but, there is a great deal more needed. There are no grey water dumps anywhere. Most sites are in big need of re-leveling. Water is very discolored with rust, but great pressure. Restrooms are very dated and in need of updating. Campground host had very poor attitude, park ranger said he was very overworked. Our ADA site and all other pull-thru sites were nicely paved, but terribly unlevel, our 30ft motorhome had a 10 inch drop from back to front before leveling. The gorge and waterfalls are beautiful. Hiking trails well maintained. Park is close to many Northern Georgia sights and attractions. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

I have been staying here for several years. Now the State has taken over the campground from Georgia Power. Well run a few changes, nothing negative. They have sites to accommodate all size motor homes and travel trailers. All RV sites have 50/30 amp service along with water. A dump station is in the exit lane of the park. East access from US 441 in Tallulah Falls, Georgia. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

The park itself is beautiful. We could not ask for better prettier scenery. We stayed for three nights and the restrooms/bathhouses not only needed cleaning but were also never stocked with hand soap or toilet paper. When checking in the staff was complaining about the person in line in front of us trying to purchase a souvenir t-shirt for their child. Campsites were clean but road noise was a constant bother when sitting outside. We love staying at Georgia State Parks but this one was very disappointing.

We found the access from HWY 23 easy and two parking spots to register with a very helpful and friendly office attendant that explained the Georgia State Park pass and that cash only is accepted. Then we ventured via the narrow interior road to our very level and tight fully paved pull thru to realize that the assigned site would not allow our slides to be put out. Finally, after much maneuvering we found site 42 would work because of different tree spacing . In after thought, I believe the back in sites have more width for slides. We had highway noise but not disturbing and water was very lightly discolored. Power is strong. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

First off, this review is about the campground, NOT the park itself. The park and the Gorge is beautiful, well maintained and just amazing. The campground is not run by the State of Georgia - it is run by Georgia Power Company. While the campground is very clean with level sites, they are on top of each other. You basically look at another camper. Others have also pointed out the problems with the location of electrical and water hookups. Most disappointing was the volunteer campground host! As we checked in, he said he wished there were no tent campers, no dogs and no one under the age of 50; they are trouble makers. The sites are assigned, and although we had made reservations months prior, he admitted moving us from several other better sites to what we thought to be the least desirable space on the whole campground. He said he did that because other people were staying longer. When I asked to be moved because I was unhappy with the site, he was rude and said "This may not be the place for you - do you want your money back and go somewhere else?" We were able to talk him into letting us move but will not come back here. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Absolutely beautiful campground! The sites are large and plenty of room for slideouts and awnings. They have hiking paths and overlooks to see the beautiful waterfalls. Beach area for swimming, large playground for children. Paved pull-through sites for very large MHs and tow. We are excited to camp here again when it gets cooler weather. We camped at Tallulah Gorge State Park Campground in a Motorhome.
