I take the kids to ride ATV's here. If possible: do not use the bathhouse. They are never clean. Its not a place to go unless your going to be riding off road. Would I stay here again? Yes but it's because of the riding, and that's all. - DS650

This is a great place for off road riding, ATV, Motorcycle, 4X4 or any other type of off road vehicle. 6800 acres to play with, mudd, tracks trails family friendly fun. You ride right from your camp site or cabin to the trails and tracks. The big down fall is the bathrooms where filthy and not clean when we arrived and not cleaned all weekend at all!!! If you go forget the showers or bathrooms they are a 2 of a 10, this is the reason for the overall 6 rating. - DS650

This campground is for those who like to get dirty! It is truly a sportsman's resort with ATV riding, dirt bike riding, hunting, jeep 4x4 trails, fishing, shooting range, skeet shooting, and soon Horseback riding. They have riding trails, and MX tracks. Rentals are available, and they have a great pro shop and service department. Great for families, guy weekends, girl weekends. Check out the website for your information. We had a great time, and will most definitely be back for more fun in the dirt! - noriwitt

Excellent park. We had no reservation but there were many available sites in March. Very spacious partially shaded, level sites. Lots of walking trails. There is also a lake on the property but we didn't get to see it. Lots of room to walk your dog. Each site had a BBQ grill. Easy check in. The only negative is that you must purchase a parking pass in addition to the camping cost which seems unfair. - lstaff

Had the place to ourselves on a rainy week night. Sites well spaced, level gravel. Very nice park. No tv via antenna, good Verizon signal. Would definitely stay again. - rockhill

Wonderful park! Only downside is nearby train tracks. Heard three trains during the night but only one horn per train. So, if you're in a hard sided trailer or motor home you may not even notice. Otherwise, the quietest place we've ever camped. Level sites, clean restrooms. This is a little noticed gem. We will camp here again. - frankltd

Went to a membership promotion to this camp site. This is the old KOA campground on lake oconee. When we arrived I immediately noticed this campground was run down. Not a lot of care given in last several years. This is a small campground with 25 percent permanent campers that looked a little rough. Several of them were for sale. Only 11 lakeside sites so don't even think you'll be on the water. Most sites were not level. The rail cars were at one time nice but not been maintained. They looked out of place in the mix of permanent campers and the rental trailers (they called cabins). I would be scared to launch a boat at the boat dock. No place to park your boat trailer in the area. I don't know how they worked that out. What they called the beach looked like they had dumped several loads of sand by the lake several years ago. But this sales guy that was trying to sell me a membership ( 15,000 dollars) seemed really inspired by this place. All during his sales pitch he kept repeating "I can't promise you anything ". I had no intention of buying into their resort going over there and after viewing the site I couldn't wait for sales pitch to be over. They'll try to hang you with one of several different package deals. I don't understand why they call it a resort. - John Quincy jones

We went in for a "presentation " that was VERY VAGUE, when we asked what type, ie., time share, co-op purchase, etc.
Upon arrival, we were lead through the entire campground to a site that did NOT have the requested 50 amp service. Taken to another area that was SUPPOSED to fit our 42' 5th wheel. 1st site was already occupied, next site was too narrow AND had low hanging tree limbs. Finally settled on the last site in the park that could accommodate our rig. It was filthy, littered with trash including a pair of used latex gloves. The entire staff, except for one of the sales staff, was rude and snarky, not interested in customer service.
We were put in an area that was relatively unoccupied. However, 2 of the 3 nights, other campers were brought to the site right next to us...so close that we couldn't even extend our awnings. One of those campers even commented to me as to why they were put next to us...they took up part of our "yard" space, and there were plenty of other available options.
This campground was HORRENDOUS.
AS for the "presentation," the "salesman" was EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE! Within the first 20 minutes, he told us 3 times that if we weren't interested, then we were wasting his time, and we wouldn't be welcomed back. He also referred to women's temperament "during their time of month." And finally, he spoke badly of law enforcement and gave us his political views on the presidential candidates. Having spent over 35 years in Customer Service and Sales...I was APPALLED! Not to mention, my husband is retired Law Enforcement.
Needless to say, we did NOT PURCHASE their "membership" and we would camp in a LANDFILL before EVER CONSIDERING THIS DUMP AGAIN! - 1-CampeR

As of July 2016, this facility was a KOA (again?). This "resort" is not at a resort standard. The camground requires that you unhitch your tow vehicle prior to entry because of the narrow roads. The site they put us in would not accommodate our 30 ft coach. It was too steep of an entry to the site and our back bumper dug into the dirt. After much debate, they moved us to a site across the way from the original site. After dragging our bumper along the cement for about 5 feet due to a steep entry, an employee commented about how lucky we were to get the shadiest site. We did not appreciate that since it was so difficult to enter the site. It was over 100 degrees when we checked in about 6 pm this day.
The restroom facility we found had exposed electrical wires, and no mirrors. We were unable to find the shower facilities. The entry gate requires a code to enter. The employee who was guiding us to the site opened it for us, but we were never given the code. It wasn't an issue for us since we arrived about 6 pm and knew we were leaving early the next morning. If we had known Lake Oconee Village was so close, we might have had dinner out while the RV cooled off. Entry into park is deceptive of park quality. Road into park from I-20 is very narrow.
Another review mentions a view of the lake. From our site, we could not see or hear the lake. If we hadn't taken a walk later that evening, we wouldn't have know the lake existed. The sites were not easy to use the hookups, based on their locations and how you had to park at each site. We rated site as bad because of the entry issues and hookup issues. - Ms Winnie

Georgia Power campgrounds as a rule are very nice and well run. This park is no exception. You must call for reservations, not available online. Check them out! - happygacamper

Georgia Power Lake and can obtain reservation information from their web site. Only about 5 miles south of Interstate 20. Walking distance to the beach and nice playground. Washer/dryer located at bath house, but didn't use them. I will camp here again. - Crop Guy

We were happy. Found this campground, very beautiful, very spacious. We got waterfront view of Lake Oconee. The ground was level. It's so many trees around so you need extra careful and skill when drive the motorhome or trailer because of the trees. Each site is full hook-up. You can't swim on the lake but you can bring your boat or kayak because there is a boat pier in the campsite. One of the best campground we visit. - dije1208

After leaving another campground in the area due to deplorable conditions, our family was lucky to be able stay at Old Salem campground. For $20 per night, you get ultra clean, newer restrooms, laundry, two new playgrounds, boat ramp, beach, and spacious sites with new picnic tables. We do our fair share of camping resorts, state parks, and private parks. This has to be one of our favorite campgrounds. Nice layout and family friendly. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys any type of camping. Will be returning for 4th of July. - Lulubelle80

Clean, well kept park on Lake Oconee. Most sites are gravel and large with good spacing. Each site has a nice table, fire ring, and grill. Lots of shade trees means satellite locations are at a premium. This is one of the Georgia Power parks. Shopping, restaurants, and movies and about 2 miles away in an upscale shopping area. It gets really busy on the holidays so get reservations. The park usually closes immediately following Labor Day but this year the doing a trial and will be open until September 28. Stop by and check it out. - Pjoe

First I concur with everything side by the 12/13 reviewer. This is my second stay. I was able to pull my 40' (12.5' high) trailer through the road no problem. I would have been able to get into most of the spots. They are all long enough but the road is a little narrow and on the outside of a curve getting to one on left would have been difficult. Shower/bathroom are well taken care of. I parked by the pole in the field as I did before so I could see the satellites as the others are nicely tucked under the trees. Nice quiet place to stay while visiting my wife's friends and family. - Walter Cullop

This is our third stay here at Callaway. The camping area continues to improve. The older sites are now being renovated to provide updated hookups. The access road has firmed up very well and does not present near the challenge as it once did. If you are looking for a resort atmosphere, with wifi and a pool, this isn't the place for you. However, if it is peace and quiet with an abundance of the outdoors and nature, you won't be disappointed. This will continue to be a stop for our family in the future. - davidjsimons

We camped here in a 40 foot RV but the access road doesn't really handle big rigs. There is one spot for a large RV: no sewer, no shade, but a power pole and water. You have to drive up a large grass hill to get there, and I would not try it if it had rained recently. It had been very dry, so my husband said no problem. We scraped the front spoiler just a bit. This is a lovely spot, but just not big rig friendly. Their actual campground is strange. They have a number of permanent people living here, so the people coming in would have to go down a fairly steep hill to camp. I would not try this in anything larger than a 25 foot. It has power, water and sewer, but the access road looks difficult. - RV4fun15

This campground is nicely wooded and most of the sites are shaded and level. While we enjoyed our stay, there are some pros and cons. Pros: level sites, quiet, not crowded, with a decent beach area. Cons: bath house was old and very dated, grass was overgrown, no trash receptacles anywhere in the park (had to go outside the gates to a dumpster), some sites have pea gravel but mine was dirt. Also the site I had was lower than the road. It rained one night so all of the water flooded our site. It appears that there are only two employees (the hosts) who work here. The campground is owned and operated by Georgia Power. I'm very surprised that they invest so little in the maintenance. Oh well, for 20 bucks what should I expect? - jconnally

This is a beauitful park on Lake Oconee - a real fisherman's park. There are nice level back in sites which were huge. The price was right for a two night stay. The park hosts were very nice and helpful as well. This one is on my list to return too. Only drawback was its a tad bit out of the way, but worth the drive. - User224

We celebrated Thanksgiving here with my family. This is a very clean campground with spacious sites. The facilities are a bit dated, but well cared for. Situated right on the lake with separate loops for RV & tent campers. Lots of trails to walk, friendly camp hosts, and neighborly campers. Some of the sites are far from being level, but otherwise a good place to kick back and enjoy some peace & quiet. - kdouthit

Lots of permanent residents and roads are very narrow; could be a problem for a large RV. Gravel pads with some grass. Works fine for an overnight. - Bojangles

The people that own this park were so nice to us. We stayed for 3 months and never had a problem. They have a laundry room that was nice and clean. Bathhouse was so clean and even smelled cleaned when you walked in!! The workers here made sure to keep it very clean.
The park itself stayed very quiet. Speed limit is 5, which I loved since I have a toddler that likes to run around. The owners also ride around during the day AND night checking on everything. Will definitely be back if my husband has a job near by again. Thank you Country Boys RV, we had the best stay. You take wonderful care of your guests. - Shelby Shoemake

Well maintained gravel interior roads, pull through, good WIFI and cable. Easy in and off from the highway. We stayed in a motor home over night. Will stay here again. - runamuka
