50 Parks near Young Harris, Georgia

This campground is for the use of people attending the school. It provides a convenient location just steps away from the classroom building. All the sites are back-in. Some require backing up a fair distance since the row is a dead-end. Many of the hook-ups are on the wrong side, requiring long cords or hoses. Sites are very shady and only a couple have satellite reception. No other TV reception is available. Road in is very narrow but has almost no traffic. Sites are relatively level. Wi-Fi is available in the classroom building and can be picked up at some of the sites. No laundry facilities are available. Nearest shopping is about 3 miles away. Closest major grocer is 10 miles. - glenthompson

Very nice campground with a lot of activities. Stayed over the Memorial Day weekend. Campground was full but did not feel crowded. Restrooms are very clean and well maintained. Stayed on site 19. Nice but located next to main road. - FreedomExp

Assigned to pull through sites "on the hilltop". When attempting to drive up hill grade almost buried our tow vehicle. Because of rain for a couple days the road was impassable but the staff was apparently unaware. Lots of trees and campground is hilly. Pulling our rig on narrow roads through the park was challenging. No ATT service and extremely limited Verizon. Little to no TV reception. - PappaDee

This was our first time camping, the experience was wonderful! The staff was friendly and helpful, the park was very clean, as well as the restrooms and showers. This will become a yearly tradition for our family to spend Thanksgiving at Trackrock! - marty_L

My wife and I were traveling around North Georgia mountains trying out our Passport America membership and found this secluded park that we will certainly return to. Just follow the Google map from your smart phone to get here.
Not far outside Hiawassee, it offers a quiet place nestled in the ridge of surrounding mountains and plenty of shady sites to choose from. The owners were very nice and helpful. We gladly give them our best review. - Bill Strandberg

(* We paid for 12 months as we are now permanently living here in our fifth-wheel). Long Ridge Campground is relatively small when compared to several other campgrounds nearby, but no one can beat the exceptional customer service the owners provide! The sites are covered with gravel, & clean. There are a dozen or so tent sites, 30 amp sites for smaller RVs & sites large enough to handle any big rig easily. These latter sites are full-service: WiFi, 50 amp, water & sewer included. The campground is secluded with a small catch & release pond & a stream that provides a soothing sound throughout the day & night. The office sells ice & a small amount of other "must have" RV items. There is a seasonal (closed Nov-Mar) RV service & parts store a few miles away. They do on-site service as well. I strongly recommend you call ahead for a reservation as the campground fills up very quickly, especially during the spring, summer & early fall when there are numerous festivals in the area. Come one, come all to Long Ridge Campground! - Jess Jessup

When you finally find this 'hidden' gem, you'll be glad you did. The route into the campground is a little tight and unnerving in your rv if you're never been to it, especially the tight rural road that's partly a single lane, but, it's worth it.
There are several backin 'rv park' style gravel sites up front, and many 'campground' style backin sites under the trees, near the woods, and around the pond. All seem to be well designed and roomy.
Plan to stay here a while, it's away from traffic, near nature, with a pond and large stream near everyone. - hturnerfamily

We just got back today from a weekend at Bald Mountain Camping Resort. This was probably our favorite resort thus far for a few reasons. The mountain views are great. Level lots, cable hookups (at least at our site 46), free wifi with a password they provide, good cell service (we have Verizon and always had 2 bars and the speed was great). Our site backed up to a creek. Was dry just because we've had a really hot summer. The camping store is really nice. Anything you can think you may have forgotten to get they'll have. We arrived late and they have a box in front at the office where they place your paperwork with your name, so you can just grab it, park and go the next morning to check-in. - cellgirl99

The park is beautifully manicured; attention to detail is evident throughout.
Sites are level and roomy. Modern pedestals. Conveniently located. Two sewer caps per site. Staff was helpful and friendly. - GaHoosier

We camped here for Labor Day Weekend. This is an excellent campground. The mountain views are scenic and beautiful. There is a lot to do for kids. The site we stayed in was a pull thru and was very level. Everything was very clean and well kept. We had full hook ups with free internet and cable. We have already booked our next stay here. - lifecamp

We stayed this time at the 'second' section of campsites, across the road from the main fairgrounds park. While there is no sewer for each site, the waterside/lakeside option is wonderful as you within feet of the water, and each site has access to 20/30/50 amp service, water, 60+ Cable channels, and nice Wifi that works well.
The park is a little difficult to manuver with longer vehicles, and the sites can be a little hard to back into, but it's worth the effort. Some sites are short, others are very deep. Some sites are very narrow, with drop offs to the water, while others are wide and expansive. Most of the sites have plenty of shade, for most of the day, but this could also make for difficult satellite reception, if required, unless you are on the SW facing shorelines.
This time of year there are few campers and few nearby, but I can imagine that in the summer months, and during the fairground events in the fall, that it could get noisy, with many campers a little too close for comfort. - hturnerfamily

There are two sections to this campground. The "Fair side" has full hook ups the other side across does not have sewer. We stayed on the Fair side. We have stayed here many times and enjoy our stay. This place could use some capital improvements like new pavement. It is a beautiful location and a good value. Some sites can be difficult to get into and are narrow. Most have adequate space between sites. This is a beautiful location and if this was spruced up a bit I would give it a higher score. Still the "Fair" side is a good value and we'll stay here again. The other side is not a place we could fit so we wouldn't consider it. - NPmoto

Our site was on the Fairgrounds side and had full hook-ups with cable TV. When stopping to register, turn left into the lower level next to the office. The upper road is passable with a covered entry that has a 14' clearance. The sites are fairly narrow, but mostly level with pavement. Many of the sites have broken pavement, especially on the edges. The bathrooms are dated, but clean and serviceable. Nice view of the lake from our site. Lots of trees with plenty of shade. - Good Vibes

This was our first visit here. We were met by the owners who checked us in and escorted us to our site. The back-in site (there's no pull-thrus) was a little tight but owner directed me as I backed in our 37' fifth wheel. We have a nice shady and quiet site but I think some sites closer to the road may experience some traffic noise.
Site has 50 amp electric, water, sewer, and about 100 cable channels. The site wasn't long enough to accommodate our truck but owner said we could use the vacant site next to us. The park has a good number of park models (mostly occupied by Floridians escaping summer heat) as well as a number of spots for folks just spending a few nights.
I recommend this park and will likely visit again when in the area. The park accepts Passport America for two nights only at half of the $32 rate. - halfdimes

A very friendly, safe RV park with everything you need to feel at home. The park is a good mix of seasonal and weekender sites, all of which are spacious and treed. The hookups are well located and include cable and free WiFi. Our hosts were super helpful, giving us lots of info on the area. We will be back to this very nice RV park. - Ab and Cindy

Beautiful campground in the North Carolina mountains. The owners are super friendly and the campground is very quiet. There was plenty of room on our site. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to others camping in the area. - harvmoon

Every previous review, both the good and the bad, are completely accurate. I think part of the problem is that this non-profit looks like its running on the edge financially - and not always able to keep the property in as good a shape as they would like.
1) The sites are packed in like sardines.
2) They nickle and dime you to death.
3) The waterfall trails are a bit dangerous, especially if wet.
4) There is NO connectivity for Cell, TV and very little WiFi.
5) Because campsites are so close - if its a busy weekend then you may have conflicts with neighbor's fires/drinking/kids.
1) It's a beautiful place!
2) There is a demonstration garden that you (and kids) can help with - and if you pull weeds, you can feed them to the rabbits. You can also pet the cows, pigs and Shetland ponies.
3) This would be a great campground for groups. They have several gathering places/lodge etc. This property used to be a youth camp and still has dining hall and other facilities.
4) The staff was exceptionally nice when we were here, although there are reviews on other review sites listing rude behavior.
5) There is absolutely NO connectivity (cell, TV or Wifi). Listed as a positive for me: wonderful to be able to tell the office, "I'm off the Grid for a few days. Handle it yourself!"
Note: I think I'd want to make sure I have a Power Management System. If this park was full on a hot day I'll bet they have voltage problems.
Bottom line - Give it a try, get one of the creekside campsites, don't have your expectations too high. - Buddy Ray

We stayed here before, in the fall of 2015. Camp sites are very close to each other. If you have a long RV or travel trailer might want to find a different camp ground. Ours is 29' and barely had enough room to fit. Tow vehicle didn't fit. Campground was completely packed: Rv'ers as well as Tent'ers. Quiet time starts at 10pm. but lasted well through till about 2am. Nice if your just passing through, but not an extended stay campground in my honest opinion. - familygor1g

Be aware there are a few "surcharges" in addition to rates but it is all stated ahead. I listed $54 a night because there is an additional $10 added to the rate and $5 for a pet and an additional $10 a person for guest. All of this is on the Website so there is no surprise. We were there 5 nights and it rained most of the time - not the campsites fault. There is no pavement and there was a lot of mud. The water went out twice due to people running into water spigots. Interesting. This appears to be an older campground - the back in for our 40' RV was very tight. There are nice wooden decks next to the site but, when you run out the slides it takes up most of the deck. Most sites are not level. There are concrete pads to park your rig on but, they are more suited to shorter rigs without slide outs. As always we met a lot of nice people. We rated it OK but will most likely not return. - Larry Jenkins

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

This large mountain campground is off the highway so it is quiet. Weekly rate is $215. The sites and roads are gravel and all sites appear to be pretty level. We camped in new section by the river (H3). 62 channels on the cable TV hookup and the park WiFi seems to be better than most. Office personnel very friendly. Be sure to follow website instructions for arrival. Plenty of nearby places to explore. Sites are large enough for the biggest RVs plus toads and there's adequate space between sites. There's a mix of shaded and open sites. - smdrm

Very nice CG with beautiful views surrounding it. We stayed on the end in the new section (H13) backing up to the river with a huge field on one side and a mountain view out the front of the RV. Check in was friendly and easy, and the CG is very clean. FHU, back-in site was gravel and easily leveled. Cable TV had plenty of channels. There is WiFi, but the new section doesn't have the repeaters yet, so you have to go to the older section to use their WiFi. We had our own. Plenty of room to walk the dog along the river and in the field as well as thru the CG. Good Verizon cell coverage. We would definitely stay here again. - Gayle E.

This is a lovely park in a valley surrounded by the North Georgia Mountains. It can accommodate all types of RV's including large coaches. The only down side is that all sites are gravel. We had a pull through site that was new and with recent rains, the site was soft, Even with pads, our leveling jacks sunk in. However, that is the only negative. The Hiawassee River passes along side the park and is a lovely trout stream. The park has a couple of meeting facilities including one with a kitchen. We would come back and stay again. - User3770
