Pretty nice campground, has a state park or Corps of Engineers feel to it. Very large, widely-spaced sites. Could be maintained a little better, there was some trash around, like a big wet cardboard box lying next to our site. Very quiet and peaceful, you'd never know you were just off the interstate. Front desk folks were as friendly as they could be.

Okay for an overnight stay. They seem a little overboard on rules, and extra fees. For instance, the sign on the door of the restroom next to the pool says "Do Not Enter With Wet Swimsuit." C'mon. People shower in there. There are fees for children, for using the slide, for having a birthday party at the picnic pavilion... But, I got the impression this park is also the recreation area for the locals. The fabulous water slide is only open on the weekends from noon-6pm, so we had to make do with the 90-degree swimming pool full of dead bees. Our concrete slab still required one plank for leveling side to side. Pull-thrus in front are very close to and exposed to the rural road outside the campground. This is a convenient overnight stop from I-20.

Nice place, beautiful setting. Sites are too close together, and it's rather expensive. Small picnic table, no grill or fire ring, and only a dozen feet from our neighbor's sewer pipe when sitting down to dinner. Still, the people running the place couldn't be better. From the guy at the front desk letting me dig through his change looking for state quarters, to the workamper couple who let me into the pool early to find the ring my daughter lost, everyone was very customer oriented, so maybe the fees were worth it. The WiFi was a very strong signal.

The sites at this campground offer something for everyone, it seems. If you like the shoulder-to-shoulder pull-thru parking lots, they have those. If you like smaller pull-thrus under the trees, they have those. If you like a shady tent spot, they have those. And if you like a shaded back-in, that have that, too, which is where we stayed. Our only complaint, really, was that there wasn't enough gravel at the entrance to our site, and it became a mud pit under our truck when it rained. But, there was plenty of room to park the truck at the empty tent site next door, so it wasn't really a problem. The kids enjoyed the two playgrounds, mini golf (extra charge,) petting zoo, the pool, and playing amongst the trees at our site. We enjoyed watching the wildlife, the views of Mesa Verde, and the quiet. You can't get any closer to Mesa Verde without camping inside the park itself. Seemed a bit expensive, especially with extra charges for kids and having to deal with the mud (yes, I raised the issue our first day, but nothing was done.) WiFi signal did not reach back to site 61.

If you can have "primitive camping" with full hook-ups, this is it! This place is not for the folks who like to park their RVs shoulder to shoulder in a parking lot. It's a bit rough around the edges, but the setting is outstanding. You're surrounded by trees, huge rocks (which they've thoughtfully outfitted with big ropes so you can climb them,) and great views of the valley below. There are probably 7-8 pull-thru sites of varying size. I'd say four or five could handle a 30+ trailer, and the others were better for shorter rigs. RV sites are gravel, and we had to raise about 3 inches to get level. There are no laundry facilities (appears that there used to be.) Hwy 191 is nearby, but we didn't really notice it much after dark, when the big trucks seemed to quit going by so often. The atmosphere is really Old West, and the owner/caretaker/chef is a nice and interesting man. The steaks at the restaurant were worth the price, too!

Another great Georgia State Park. Sites are generally well spaced and neat and clean. Many of the back-in sites could be more level, but we're always able to level up with 2-3 inches of blocks. The pull-throughs really cater to the big rigs, but they're not on the water like the back-in sites. Even the sites that are set back a ways from the water have pretty good views, and you don't have to go through other's campsites to walk down to the lake. Generally quiet and peaceful in the campground, with enough to do in the park to keep you busy.

Probably the best campground on the NW side of Atlanta. The only thing keeping us from giving it a "10" is that the showers are located quite a ways from many of the sites. But this is a great campground, very well maintained. Lots of different sites to choose from. Ours had a huge deck overlooking the lake, with a perfectly level large concrete pad for our motorhome. Fishing, boating and swimming are the things to do here, but Red Top Mountain State Park is a short drive away, with hiking, boat rentals, Saturday night Bluegrass (summers only,) and a lodge with a really good restaurant. We'd heard good things about McKinney, and we'll definitely be back again and again.
