Nice park on the lower end of lake wheeler; we stayed the middle week of October and enjoyed the park and the fishing. The park staff and hosts were friendly, however this is the second time in a row that the RR' s were not very clean, they were in good shape but not to the usual standard of cleaning everyday.
Good campground and the staff is friendly. Loop A is the best for separation of campsites, however no fires are allowed in this loop. Restrooms are clean and maintained. Did not understand the boat ramp, they need a floating platform to tie up to when launching. Excellent walking around the roads, keep I'm mind these roads have hills. Hiawassee is a fun place to visit and you will not find a lot of brand restaurants, mostly local flavor. We stayed four days and will mark this campground for a return visit. The campground is run by the county and is better maintained than most Georgia State Parks.
We camp in a popup and we like to see clean updated restroom and showers. Holiday COE at best has dated restrooms and showers. We have never been to a campground much less a COE where there are seperate shower buildings that are not close to each loop. I would think that this campground needs an overhaul of the entire facilities. This was our first stay on West Point and probably will not be back. The scenery was fantastic especially at sundown and the camping was peaceful.
We stayed three nights. The bathhouse in loop A was not very clean and no one cleaned while we were there. Some of the pads (asphalt) are starting to buckle causing several of the sites to be unlevel. We have seen this park in better shape.
Camped the last week of April; this is still one of the best campgrounds we have stayed in, both clean and well maintained. The view of the lake is excellent. Ellijay is about 15 minutes away, and the spotted bass fishing was fantastic. Campground staff was friendly; the county sheriff patrolled on the weekends. We would highly recommend the campground and the Ellijay area of Georgia.
Clean campground, clean restrooms and shower. The weeds along the road were not cut and the weeds in the the tent area were not cleaned out. The campground opened last week for the season and with federal cutbacks this may have to be acceptable, however a little effort can go a long way.
Great park, no problems with insects, sites were clean, roads were two lane and in good shape, camp host will mark your site as reserved provided you pay online. Cell service was a strong 3G, closest town was Georgetown about 14 miles away. No complaints, camp hosts were friendly and willing to help.
The campground park is a good park and the spaces at each site will accommodate two vehicles side by side. The sites are level, shaded (next to lake) and all utilities work. The only problem was little hot water showers and the bathrooms need to be better cleaned. The bathrooms appear to be less than ten years old and there is no reason to not keep them clean. The lake is a nice lake and we will give this state park another chance.
The bathhouse (loop A) was very clean, the overall condition of the campground was very good. The only problem was short length of sites. We carry a boat and it requires a longer site (We do not like crowding the roads). The pull through sites are adequate, however there were only two back in sites that were forty feet. We enjoy Wheeler, it is cold this week (last week of October). The ranger and hosts are friendly and helpful.
Good park, we stayed in the older section, the newer sections have the best bath/shower facilities. Gravel lots, plenty of activities and lots of kids though everything was quiet by 8:00pm. What I do not understand was the amount of tent campers utilizing trailer spaces, campground was full unless you were using a tent and actually used a tent space. You have to wonder if the park realizes they are losing money allowing the tents on trailer spots? Definitely will return, we were a little early for the Fall colors.
Past reviews, though three years old indicated this was a great park: they were right. This park could be used to benchmark other parks. A couple of notes; 1. I-575 out of Atlanta to state rd 382 is the best way to go 2. There is cell service so if you are setup to use your phone on your laptop then you have three bars of 3G service. We pulled a ranger bass boat and a popup camper.
Campsites could be leveled better; there are a fair number of semi permanent campers. Host was helpful and friendly. There was a dump station, two bath houses, boat ramp, and good neighbors. Quiet campground located on Lake Guntersville. We will camp there again.
