The Chattahoochie River lakes are an angler's paradise, where largemouth bass, white bass, hybrids, crappie, channel catfish and bream are found. The lake's 640 miles of shoreline offer many excellent locations for bank fishing, and a boat ramp is conveniently located nearby.
The lake and its surrounding forests provide a great locale for hiking, hunting or simply observing wildlife.
This recently upgraded campground offers 74 sites, 55 of which have electric and water hookups. Buddy sites that can accommodate up to 16 people each are also available.
Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water, laundry facilities and a dump station.
Walter F. George Lake, sometimes called Lake Eufaula, stretches 85 miles up the Chattahoochee River. Visitors come to relax and play among the natural beauty of the area.
The lands surrounding the lake are forested with dense stands of mixed hardwoods. A wide variety of wildlife is commonly seen, including waterfowl, deer, squirrels, rabbits, eagles, hawks, bobcats and dozens of species of songbirds.
The historic towns of Eufaula, Alabama and Cuthbert, Georgia are nearby. Eufaula boasts more than 20 structures and districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Beautiful antebellum mansions are located throughout both towns.

We recently spent five nights at another Army Corps of Engineers campground, Hardridge Creek Campground located near Abbeville, Alabama. This is one of four COE campgrounds on the Walter F. George reservoir locally know as Lake Eufaula. We reserved our site online using the Recreation. gov application.
We arrived on a Thursday afternoon, check in times are after 4:00 PM. The reservation and check in process was painless, our paperwork was ready upon our arrival and COVID precautions were implemented and rigorously executed throughout. We reserved site 52 which is a beach front site which is large and included a private stairway down to the lakeside beach area. The site included 50/30/15 amp electrical, water, fire pit, picnic table, fire ring, BBQ and portable table. The site was completely level on a concrete pad. Very nice and well kept. There are several sites that include sewer connections on sites 55-77. This campground does close and lock the gate between 10PM and 7AM, there is no gate code and only emergency access is available through the park host. This is stressed during the check-in and in the provided information.
We really enjoyed this location but there are ants at this park as is others in this region. If you do not take preemptive measures beforehand you will be affected. Everything that touches the ground is a conduit for their access, the tires, leveling jacks, tongue jack, power cord and the water hose are their tools for finding a way. Even something as simple as a tree branch touching the awning will prove a route.
The beach was very nice and included a swimming area with boundaries to prevent boats and jet skis from entering. The bathroom was clean and typical for its age. The closest town is Fort Gaines, Georgia, 3.5 miles away, there is a gas station and a Dollar General for there for basic supplies.
We used Verizon cell service and had good coverage for cell service and excellent data or LTE coverage. We were also able to receive about six channels of over the air TV on the antenna.
In summary; great park, well kept and managed. The sites are better than most and can provide accommodations for all types of rigs. The only negative was the ants but having read other reviews beforehand, we came prepared. Check it out if you are in the area. I’ve included a park map with information in the attached pictures.
Nicely maintained campsite was quiet during the week but it sounds like they get pretty busy on the weekends. Since the park is surrounded by water there were several boats and some people fishing off the land. The area I was in was raised a few feet off the water. There is also a swimming area with a huge sand beach. Be warned the sand is extremely hot midday. Even with thick rubber sandals my feet got too hot.
Quiet and clean!!!
