We stayed 4 days and were very happy. Staff were very helpful and friendly. All sites have sewer now, not so in the 1980's when we camped there last. Newer sites have no shade and are smaller sites than the older ones. The restrooms, showers and laundry were kept clean and neat. The weather was very windy and thunderstorms coming in on or last day but that was the problem we had and you can not help the weather. We stayed on site 16 lakeside and next to the playground and a fishing pier out in the lake to a small island where the ducks were nesting. They would make a lot of noise when disturbed.
A very nice campground with clean sites and restrooms. There are two loops - Firefly is newer and more open (good satellite areas) while Yellowhammer has sites with more cover/privacy. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Full hook-ups on all sites with 20, 30 & 50 amps available. Walking trails, boat launch and day use areas. A very enjoyable camping area close to Double Springs for supplies. We plan to camp there again. We used our America the Beautiful Senior Pass there for the first time since I got it in October of this year. Really nice to pay $14.15 a night to camp instead of $22.05.
We have now camped at Logan Landing twice. April and Memorial Day weekend this year. The campground was well kept and the staff were very helpful and friendly. They really try hard to give you a great camping experience. We appreciated the craft time and games they did on Saturday and Sunday for the kids (and adult kids). The beach and swimming pool areas were well-kept and they had beach chairs and umbrellas in the area. They guide you to your campsite and assist you pulling through or backing in (something my wife really likes). Although we got in for Memorial Day due to another camper canceling we had a nice pull through site large enough for out trailer and a tent for our daughter, her husband, our granddaughter and four dogs. We will be going back as often as we can. It was one of the most enjoyable camping weekends we have had. Our hats off with a big salute to the Captain and Crew.
The week we were there we were one of 6 campers. It was great. We had the entire place to ourselves most of the day and enjoyed the shady campsite with the creek running next to us. I would give it a higher rating except it is so far from anywhere and no sewer hook-ups. There is a small convenience store about 5 miles up the mountain with a surprisingly diverse stock of goods. We got rib-eyes for 5.99 a pound to grill out one night. Ice, charcoal, canned goods and other camping type things are there also. The staff was very nice and helpful. We walked through the campsites 5 or 6 times a day with our two dogs. Sometimes along the road other times on little trails along the creek. Since we were there during the week there was no one at the beach area but it is large with lots of sand. The beach restrooms are not as nice as the campgrounds, in fact, they were disappointing. Easy access to the river for boaters and fishermen with a plus every now and then of seeing big barges that came through the locks just above the camping area. We will go there again sometime for a long weekend.
My wife and I have camped at John Tanner 6 times in the past 9 years and it does not have a lot of activities but that is why we like it. We enjoy walking with our two dogs on the 1.1 mile long paved walking trail around the main lake and in the campground area. It is a 15 minute drive to restaurants and shopping at Carrollton or Bremen and less than an hour from western Atlanta, which includes 6 Flags over Georgia. The restrooms and grounds are kept clean and we've always been treated courteously by the staff. It can be very busy on weekends since it is a gathering place for family get-togethers and reunions. We've never had a bad time there and will be camping there two more weekends this year.
We've camped here twice. One week July 2005 in a Popup and Memorial Day weekend in 2006 in our new Jayco Flight TT. It was very enjoyable both times. We enjoy taking our 2 dogs with us and it is a good place for them since the campground layout lets us walk them many different ways during the day (and night). The restrooms are kept up well and the staff is very friendly. Most sites are large and shaded. There is a nice sandy playground with basketball goals, swings and teeter-totters. This is one of most favorite areas to camp.
