This is our favorite park for a mountain visit. We prefer the west rim over the east rim area as the sites are more secluded. Beautiful park with gorgeous views, the campground hosts and DNR rangers are exceptionally nice and helpful. Only a short drive (6 mi.) down the mountain to supermarket. The pull up the mountain is not a terrible climb. We will return again (and again)!
This is one of the best kept "secrets" in the Georgia State Park system. All sites, with the exception of the first 3-4 are waterfront/waterview. The rangers and cg hosts very friendly and helpful. No cable, but many of the sites are such that satellite can be used. People are advised to stay out of the lake, as folklore has it (and there is a basis of truth for this) that a couple of alligators still roam the lake. Access in and out is very easy, with dump station on the way out. It is a little difficult to find, but worth the effort. We immediately booked another stay in the fall.
