This is a huge COE campground. There are several camping loops and they have a different look depending on whether they are in the woods or on the water. There are no full hook-up sites but I think every site has electricity and water. The lake is beautiful and the mornings are full of birdsong. My only complaint was that we had accidentally chosen a site in the midst of a large family get-together and there were a dozen young kids running around having a great noisy time. We would have been happier in one of the more isolated sites. This CG is great for walks, jogging, dog-walking, and water activities like fishing and kayaking. It is very clean and well-maintained. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Motorhome.

This is one of the cleanest campsites we have ever been in! Most sites are waterfront and many accommodate more than one vehicle. Some sites are clustered - great for families and groups. West Point Lake is clean - the water and air smell fresh and lovely unlike some lakes that smell of algae. Walking/biking trails aren't located inside the campground but there are plenty of them in the park. Army Corps of Engineers hit this one out of the ballpark. Can't wait to come back.

Bring your fishing poles and water craft. This is a huge lake that is clean and sparkling. It is in the south so red dirt colors the water. Gorgeous hiking trails.

This is a nice COE Park with lots of woods, peace and quiet along the shore of West Point Lake. Most sites are large with plenty room for vehicle and boat parking. There only a few pull through sites and some of the back in sites looks to be a bit challenging to get in. Restrooms are few and far between and there is only a couple bath houses. The interior roads are paved as are the sites. Getting a satellite signal is a challenge if not impossible on most sites, but I had 2/4 bars Verizon service. Really a nice place. We will go back.

This park is one of the nicest COE parks we've visited. Clean. Sites are very private, for the most part. Most have nice lake views. Many are shaded. Double sided dump station. We were on #98 which had no shade but was very close to the water with a 180 degree view. Since it wasn't a hot day, it didn't matter about the shade. The sunset across the lake was beautiful. We intend to stay here whenever we are in the area or passing through. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Motorhome.

Wonderful! Easy access off I-85. Easy turns for big rigs. Very clean and large sites. Wonderful views of lake. Most back-in but some pull - through. Most sites look level. Look for picture of site when making online reservations. Sprint cell service was poor and could only get a couple OTA TV stations. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Motorhome.

Very nice. Hidden gem. Went in January. Only two campers in park. Quiet. Scenic. Used as one night stopover. Would like to have stayed longer. Would come again. Sites at waters edge.

Our campsite was nice and level, when the lake is full this will be a lake site. Verizon hot spot worked well as did our phones, we were able to pick up around 8 channels for the TV with our antenna. Bathrooms were clean, very small and no showers. The Fall colors were beautiful, we enjoyed riding our bikes thru the campground. It is a good weekend stay.

This vast COE campground/park system lies along the southeast side of West Point Lake in a mixed deciduous forest. The lake's dam is in the park. Located about 5 to 6 miles off of I-85 from the Lanett, Alabama or West Point, Georgia exits. Follow US 29 north out of West Point towards LaGrange. The campground is simply first class. Although there are road signs on US 29 marking the turn into the park, the large entrance sign is on granite and is difficult to read, especially at night. Inside the campground, directions to numbered campsites are well marked. About 80% of the campsites are waterfront with panoramic views of the lake or its coves, mix of shade and sun. Most have a downhill asphalt driveway that slopes onto a level concrete pad. If a site had a level driveway, it was entirely fine gravel. We saw some evidence of bumper and hitch gouging on the concrete pad at some sites. Especially acute was Site #34. There are some pull-through sites, and many double sites. Some sites had wooden decks. There are additional parking slips for extra vehicles or boat trailers, and on-road marked parking. Picnic tables with fine gravel sitting/campfire living areas are spacious. The distances between campsites vary from fairly close to downright isolation. Some sites have 50 amp service, majority seemed to have 30 amp only. Electric and water worked fine. Quiet and dark at night. Train horns can be heard in the far distance night and day. Dual direction dump station near gatehouse, no sewer at sites. Restrooms were quite clean, small, and had no showers in our loop. Fantastic roadways for walking, jogging, and bicycling. Dog poo was an issue on roadsides. In addition to the paved roads, there are 7 miles of off-road bicycling trails. There was a playground with a swing set and slide, and one tennis court. OTA DTV was limited to PBS and Cozi. Sprint phone was 3 bar and LTE. A few raccoons at night. We'd stay here again. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Travel Trailer.

Downtown West Point has been restored. Drove to Callaway Gardens for Christmas lights. We're not impressed. Crowded. Pricey. To each their own, I suppose.

WE only stayed for one night this time, but hope to return. As usual this COE campground is top notch. Didn't seem like any stores nearby, probably 4-5 mi. to nearest grocery. But load up on eats, 'cause you will not want to leave.

We stayed here in our 31' Class C RV. We were on our way to North Carolina and were very disappointed in the choices of parks along I-85 going into Atlanta. (Actually if you want a chuckle from some creatively written reviews, check those out. (Look for the parks along I-85 West out of Atlanta.)

In any case, we stopped here because we didn't want to go into Atlanta to find a decent place to stay. WOW - it was incredible!!! It was our first COE (Corps of Engineers park) and we are now hooked.

The spaces were widely spread apart and you felt like you practically had the entire place to yourself. We stayed in space #29 and it was superb. It had an elevated view of the calm and lovely lake with a path going down to a tiny beach on the water. It would be great for a dog that wanted to swim in the water.

The site was heavily shaded and flat. There were a fire pit, grill, full size picnic table, and lamp pole. The people working at the entrance were so friendly. They were working on a 4-5 month contract, 4 days on, 4 days off, and had their camper on site.

The bathroom was right across the road. It was old but very clean. The only reason I'm giving this park a 9 and not a full 10 is that there was no shower in the bathroom. There were showers closer to the entrance, but were too far to easily walk to.

What started out as just a convenient stop along the way, is now a future vacation destination for our family.

FYI, on the way out, talked to the hosts. They said there were some sites with even better views. Can't remember the numbers, but they must be incredibly awesome because our site (#29) was amazing. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Motorhome.

Another great COE park, very easy to get to off Interstate 85. Big rigs should have no issues, might be a few sites that would be slightly difficult to get in but not many. Roads are big rig friendly, most sites are paved, sites in the first loop are all gravel but nice. Our Verizon was not the greatest in the first loop, our neighbors ATT was fine, our Verizon seemed to be fine in the other loops. Dish will for the most part be OK if yours is portable, over air TV is limited, about 10 channels. Water and 50 AMP at all sites, water pressure was great, showers are very limited. Very nice lake, great boating, beach is a short drive. Our price reflects senior discount. We would camp here again. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is for $12 for one night with Golden Age Passport. But recreation.gov website requires 2 nights for a reservation, so effective discounted rate for a one-night transit stop was $24. Annoying, but still a very good buy compared to many of the alternatives.
Interior roads were wide and well maintained as were the sites that we observed. Our site (#50) as easy to negotiate drive-thru with 50-amp and water service, both easy to access. AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE service ran about 5 mhz down/.1 mhz up. Sent several texts with pictures attached with no problem. Service stations and shops in West Point, about 5 miles from this quiet campground. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here twice, one night each, going to and from our final destination. What a find! Almost all sites are lake front or lake view. Some are elevated quite a ways above the waterline, however. Some have wooden decks. All sites seemed quite spacious, and many were very private. Driveways are gravel, with concrete pads. Some sites had 50 amp. The lake looked good for fishing, and next time we will bring our 6-man inflatable and try it out. Sunsets were beautiful, and campfires were wonderful. Truly enjoyed our stay both nights.
