35 RV Parks near Mountain Rest, South Carolina
Jul 2017 - $22.00
This was our first stay at this state park. The park is an older, CCC era park and has that older charm about it. While many of the buildings and bathhouses are older, they were always clean when I visited them. Many of the sites are tight and short, but workable. WiFi is available in select areas, AT&T cell service is non-existent. Rangers frequently patrolled the park and would pick-up trash at each site. Water and 30 amp service was good. My site was a little difficult to back into because of some trees. A little caution and a good spotter and it worked. The park offers numerous activities including: dancing on Fridays (summertime), miniature golf, swimming, (the lake was being re-filled following emergency repairs) several hiking trails. The park also serves as the terminus for the Foothills Trail, a 77 mile hiking trail. - dtaylor

Even though park was packed on the Fourth of July, it was quiet at night. Be aware of the golf carts, they are every where. The bath houses were not kept clean and I am not sure they were even cleaned the whole weekend. Also the sites are not level, whatever it says on the park website, be aware they are even worse when you get there. On the plus side there is a large swim area and play ground for kids. - gsimichele

The campground is very nice; very shaded. Lots to do in the park. However, the campsites are very small; if you're tent camping or have a pop-up, you shouldn't have a problem, but you may have trouble if you have anything larger. We have a 24' travel trailer and destroyed our awning at Site #14 because of a tree that leans; we also had a good bit of difficulty pulling out of the site. - bdodson

The campsites at this park are directly on the river. We were in A5 which positioned our 5th wheel so that the awning and door opened directly to the river. It was peaceful in some ways even though we could hear road noise from Hwy 441. Section A restrooms were clean and up to date. It was a beautiful walk along the river to section B. Section B doesn't have sewer due to its location being to close to the river. Some of Section A has sewer some does not. There is a dump station in both sections. The park also has Section C which is up on top of a mountain. Section C is usually used by longer term guest. There are several cabins up the mountain also. Some of the sites are small and close, others are larger and a little more spacious. We enjoyed our stay and will return. We were there over Thanksgiving and enjoyed a pot luck Thanksgiving dinner where the owners supplies the turkeys. - flrver

Park is older but seems the new owners are trying to bring it back. We stayed in the A camp which is close to the 441 bridge so it was a little loud but not unbearable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not somewhere I'd want to stay a week but good spot for a weekend get away. - User1595

Sites are extremely small. Campers are packed on top each other. Bath houses are in need of major repair. Most of the showers were broken, missing knobs, curtains. And the entire campground kept losing power. The staff was incredibly rude. Paid for and stayed 3 days. - 1_N g camper

We camped just down the road at the Tallulah Gorge State Park and drove past this campground in Oct. 2014 - Tallulah River Walk was closed - boarded up with a For Sale sign on it. I guess the previous reviewer's comment about it being in forclosure was correct. Their website is still online but that's probably because their hosting hasn't expired. - Buddy Ray

This has to be the worst campground we ever stayed at. Narrow roads, rowdy campers, road noise, sites not maintained. Price was steep for what you get. From what I've read online the place is in foreclosure. Stay far away from this place. - shephard1

Hard to find. Very hard to maneuver through park and back in your site. Narrow, steep roads with low-hanging tree branches. Restrooms were dirty and rundown. Workers are rude if you can find one. This was a nice place years ago. Now it is awful. Cannot believe it is still in business. There was a kid walking around with a gun shooting near our RV. - travel america

Nice campground for a state park. The bathhouses were kept clean, the camp hosts were friendly. Access to the trails and the day use area from campground... quite convienant! - Rebbil

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. - tmwinn1

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. - Stax

Level gravel roads and sites with 3 pull through sites, CG is small and tight but OK. Staff is very friendly and takes you to your site. 50a, water and sewer worked well as did our rooftop dish. Verizon cell and hotspot worked, WiFi was OK. Some road noise. Site 6 was easy longer pull through, 4 was very tight turn into. - big greg

This is a very small camp with immaculate landscaping and great owners. They are so welcoming and helpful. It is a great location for many activities and will be our "go-to" campground whenever we go to the north GA mountains. We stayed in a site up front the first 2 nights and it was a bit noisy because we were too close to hwy 441, but everything else is great here! - glamping

Another small campground with FHU, cable and good wifi. Very clean, owner is very helpful and lives on the property. We came in with no reservation and were able to stay 4 days. Just off the highway in Mountain City. We were in a 30' class C motorhome. Be sure and turn out the light when leaving the bathroom. - Hey You

I have stayed in other campgrounds that were close to the highway and hated it. This one has the advantage of being in a great location and is just far enough off the beaten path to maintain a sense of quiet and privacy. The slow moving river behind most of the sites is nice and they each have their own little covered deck. What we didn't know was that each evening before sunset, the otters would swim by. That was cool. I did not see sewage but there are hookups and fire pits strategically placed. Bath house was a bit of a compromise but I would be happy to camp there again. - Palomino Highwall

I had spent Sunday night in a Forest Service campground near Franklin, NC, but they were full (and lots of noisy people and kids too) so my friend could not get in on Monday, so we agreed to meet (he has a Dodge 3500 and 30 ft TT) at Black Rock Mountain the next day. I have a Sprinter chassis motorhome and I had to use 1st gear and about 20 mph to get up the mountain. Same for going down, be careful to not overheat your brakes. You are going up about 1500 ft in elevation in about two miles, so the grades are 8 or 9% the whole way. There is no place to pull off or turn around so be prepared and know your RV is capable of the climb. Well worth it however, the views are spectacular with lots of nice hiking trails and a very nice Visitor Center. I bought a GA annual parks pass for $35 (senior price, regular price is $50) and got one night of free camping with it (worth $32) so it was a no brainier to buy it. For the night I had to pay, I received a 20% senior discount, so if over 62, be sure and ask. Only complaint is that there are signs at each of the longer sites asking tent campers to use other sites if possible, and leave the long ones for RVs, but we saw a couple of tents in 50 or 60 ft deep spaces, when there were quite a few short spaces open. The sites are very fine gravel with big heavy picnic tables and double lantern hooks, and fire pits. with grills in the pits. While the restrooms were neat and clean and everything was in good working order, the showers, while quite acceptable, could have stood to have a good scrubbing and hose down. - CharlesinGA

Another great Georgia state park! Bathrooms heated, clean, and well-maintained. Some sites are long enough for very long rigs, but getting in and out will be difficult. The road to the campground is very curvy, narrow, and up hill. Within the campground, roads are twisty and narrow. Forested, but not dense. Enough separation that we did not hear our neighbors. Verizon 4G. There were still plenty of sites in early April. Reservations are not site-specific, so it helps to arrive early for better selection. Great views and a number of nice trails. - OlderGoat

We have stayed at Black Rock and loved it every time. The staff is attentive and the property of clean. The sites are very wooded and quiet. It's a tough pull even in a new truck to get your rv up the windy mountain road.
This time we found the trading post closed and open only on weekend afternoons. Our water went out the first day and the park restrooms also closed. Would have been nice to have someone stop by to explain they were working on the problem, but that did not happen.
The campground host kept driving around in an old golf cart that back fired every time she stopped. Sounded similar to a gun shot.
We noticed they have thinned out a lot got the trees on the sites, luckily we were able to get a secluded site. Drive around before parking and find a nice secluded site.
I would also note the tent campers who pay less take up a lot of the good sites. Kinda aggravating. There should be a tent area.
The addition of cable was great, but there is no wifi. - Mattd

Check in was easy. Nice mountain view. Very well maintained. Grass was cut, bushes trimmed. No trash laying around. Restrooms stocked well. Overall very neat appearance. Hiking trails and beach were great. No problem pulling in or out of spot. Close to town. I would stay again. - Josh-Paimemi-mone

Open Season: May 1-November 2. This is a National Forest Campground - but it has water and electric hookups. Campground has 53 sites with just water and 32 sites with water and electric. No reservations but we have NEVER had a problem getting a good site; the campground is off the beaten path and a hidden gem. The campsites are well spaced, quiet and heavily wooded. There is great hiking and a beach within the park. Plus it's a short drive to Tallulah Gorge, Lake Burton and many other sites in North Georgia. If you are pulling a big trailer, 5th wheel or motorhome DO NOT enter the campground along Old 441/Terrora Rd. This is a VERY NARROW twisty road. Instead come in via Burton Dam Road from Highway 197 and you'll have no problems. There are two entrances to the campground off Lake Rabun Road - if you want hookups take the 2nd entrance - but DON'T miss it - there is nowhere to turn a rig around past that entrance and then you're into that narrow twisty road. - Buddy Ray

Keowee Falls RV park has an amazing view of lake Keowee and includes boat storage for enjoying the natural resource! The management was nice and they have playgrounds set up for the kids. There are several walking trails and a gazebo towards the front of the park. The website has several images and a video that pretty much sums up the campgrounds. - Ronnie Hughey

We stayed for 4 nights. Park is very nice and we'll kept. Site was good and level. The only thing I did not care for is the mix of owned lots and rentals. We had two encounters with owners that were surprising. When we pulled up the owner next to us had his vehicle and a friend's parked in our site. They moved to site next to us. People renting that site knocked on our door thinking it was our vehicle. When we left today we were loading our toad and the lot across from us parked their truck right on edge of their site. A vehicle was trying to get by so I asked if they could move just a little and I was told in a very unpleasant manner that they owned this lot and no one is to drive on their gravel. The car had to turn around. Seems like the lot owners feel they own the park. Just my impression. Overall everything else was good. - Pahu3

We made reservations on line but soon realized that the site would be too small for our rig. They moved us to another site but we could only stay for 4 nights and then we would have to move to a 3rd site. They were very helpful and it wasn't their fault - mhmama

This is a gorgeous park and everyone that works here is wonderful. The heated outdoor pool was amazing and we loved the indoor hot tub (it's gigantic). The grounds are beautiful and very well cared for. People seemed to be friendly, but there was barely a soul out at night. Call me old-fashioned, but my idea of camping is sitting outside at night by the campfire and you just didn't see that there. They do not have fire pits; however, you can still have a fire as long as you bring your own and it's at least 6" off the ground. We had one so we were probably the only people outside after dark. The placement of the tree on our site (and some of the other sites around us), made it a little difficult to place the fire pit but we managed. The wifi was not extremely reliable in the evening (appeared to work better during the day so I'm not sure if that was because more people were connecting in the evening??). It appeared they were installing additional wifi antennas (or whatever you call them) the day before we left so that may improve in the future. We had no problems with AT&T cell phone service at the campground. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back. - Campdog41
