Located on a peninsula, you have access to the lake from almost all campsites. Some sites are on a hill so the walk to the water can be challenging. Camp sites were wooded and well spaced out. Boat ramp and trailer parking onsite.
Beautiful campground! The sites are secluded and spread out. Great for social distancing! Some sites have water access while others are on cliffs high above the water. Sites with water access are nice but others still have a nice view.
If you don't mind a little hike campsite 20 is the best you will find. It was right off the water. Don't underestimate the walk from the parking lot though it is no joke. If you are the type to bring a lot of stuff maybe choose a different number. Also there is a lot of boat activity on the water (well past midnight). Would definitely go back.
The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The bathhouses were clean and plenty of hot water for the shower. Our campsite was large with a fire ring, BBQ grill and picnic table. Also, had a lantern post. We stayed at site A which was down a steep slope but, we had a nice view of the lake and even went for a swim right from our campsite.
This place has a nice camping spot with plenty of shade.
Had a great time at Doll Mtn Campground. The sites are tucked into the trees, lots of great spots for your hammock! We stayed at a walk-in site, but were still close to a pit toilet and our car. A really nice fully functional bathhouse was just down the road. A short walk from our site we could take a trail down to Carters lake. We ended up driving about 45 to hike in a nearby park, although I think next time I go there I’d like to just stay around the lake and take in the area.
No campsites directly on the lake, it is a mountain so it’s steep terrain
We loved our time in Ellijay and this camping spot was amazing. It was right on the lake, surrounded by trees so you had a nice private area to yourself. There wasn't any other campers while we were there. The staff was very friendly, and the wildlife was beautiful. A lot of screaming red foxes though, but it was so nice there. We will definitely be back.
Second time here, and this is a great campground. Bathhouses are clean and well maintained.
