Own a 5th wheel toy hauler from which we do professional barbecue competition with the Georgia Barbecue Association. When we are not cooking up delicious smoked pork, we stay at campgrounds close by waterfalls. Hiking in the spring and fall are our favorites.

Campsites are all 30/50 amp power with water & a dump station is on the property. Shaded spots with fire rings and picnic tables. Large, level gravel sites which most spots can accommodate larger rigs. Playground, Heritage Center, nature trails all within the campground. Boat launch is available into the Altamaha River. Very beautiful, tranquil campground. Well worth the money. We camped at Towns Bluff RV Park and Heritage Center in a Fifth Wheel.
Downtown Hazelhurst is only 11 minutes from the campground. In town, there are local restaurants, antique shops and gas stations.

On the Altamaha River and the Bullard Creek Wildlife Management Area, the Heritage Center has a small wildlife museum representing native animals and culture of the area. The Altamaha River, designated by the Nature Conservancy as one of the 75 "Last Great Places in the World," has a boat launch right behind the Heritage Center for those campers who bring along their fishing pole. Quiet and tranquil, campers will love the peaceful nature and spacious campsites. Those who prefer to use a tent, a full service bath house with showers is available in the center of the campground. Picnic tables and fire rings are available at every reasonably priced site. A dump station and 50 amp power is available for larger RV's. We camped at Towns Bluff RV Park and Heritage Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Moonshine Creek Campground is a quiet, clean and a comfortable location fitting the bill perfectly.
Providing 91 shady campsites, the family operated campground has long term leases on several of these sites, however, there are sites available even for those larger rigs, like ours. The majority of sites have full hook ups (sewer, water, electric) and cable for a small additional fee. Not all sites provide 50 amp electric, so make sure to specify when making your reservation. Fire rings and picnic tables are at each site, even at the many tent sites. Each tent site has a small roofed shelter, campers can place their tent under, although, I saw many using this sheltered space to sit under, placing their tent to the side. Tent campers rest assure, there are sink stations throughout the tent area, as well as a large clean bathhouse with showers and laundry facilities. A small store, with ice and propane fuel purchase is available. We camped at Moonshine Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Soco Falls is well worth the visit.

My husband found a beautiful, quaint campground just north of Travelers Rest that was very comfortable. The Travelers Rest KOA is located just north of downtown Travelers Rest, directly off the northbound lane of Hwy 25, the perfect location for Doug's commute. Only about 40 minutes from downtown Asheville, the family owned campground is the perfect location for a family retreat to the mountains. The owners and operators of the campground, have been awarded the 2016 KOA Founders Award for their positive reviews and praise from guests. They also were given the 2016 KOA President's Award, for their outstanding customer service and high quality standards.
A small brook flows throughout the campground and most sites are just a few steps from the tranquil water. Spots are available for larger motor coaches, up to 45′ long. Power, water, sewage and cable hook ups are available at all sites, and tent sites are available for those more rugged campers.
The heavily wooded acreage makes for a great stroll after dinner and the campground store has ice cream snacks for purchase if you need a sweet treat. Adjacent to the store, is the first of two laundry facilities and a nice sized, men and women shower/bathroom is located here, which is right in the middle of the campground property. Campers can sit on the deck, on the rear of the building, and sit on the patio to make use of the the Wi-Fi.
I admit my favorite aspect of this campground was Jason and Jennifer. They are wonderful people that will do almost anything to make your stay more comfortable. When I needed my large propane cylinder filled, Jason would pick up the empty tank at my site, bring back the full tank and even helped me get the new tank back in the camper compartment. Jason works tirelessly to keep the grass mowed, leaves blown and the entire campground clean and neat. His family made our extended stay very pleasant. We camped at Travelers Rest / N Greenville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
