We had a nice weekend at AH Stephens State Park. We didn’t get to tour the museum because of social distancing 🤷🏼♀️ but the park is well kept.
The park located in small town. It is very quite, nothing is nearby. Walmart is 33 miles away, so you should stock up before camping there. Camp sites are big and far from each other. No WiFi.
We stayed at the esquirion site which was large and had stables. Beautiful place and clean… Kind of tight and up hill a little getting in and out…
Large, well maintained sites. We stayed on 17 and it was very private. We hiked from the campground to Lake Buncombe and also hiked from Sunset Drive trail to Lake Liberty and the office. Equestrian trails are closed to hiking during the weekend. Equestrian campground has a new stable and bathhouse and a campground that is under construction now. The old equestrian campground and stable are still there. The cabins on Federal Lake just reopened after getting new flooring. All of the rangers were friendly and helpful. We did the A. H. Stephens museum tour and that was very nicely done. We did a day trip to Greensboro and walked the shops and went to Oconee Brewery. Everyone was raving about Yesterday Cafe so on our next visit Lucy May have to stay back at the camper. We will definitely return in warmer weather for canoeing and a trip to Warrenton which is close by.
This state park has boats to rent,fishing, swimming equestrian camping,cabins ect..They have this large primitive area that we used..It was a bit of a hike to the bathrooms..but everything else was fantastic We loved the historical museum there too
This would be a nice park if you have an RV. We, however, we're staying in a tent. The "lakes" they claim to have are nothing more than a cess pond and a cute little paddle boat pond. The sites are long and narrow and close together. While the bathrooms were very clean, the rest of the park just seemed to lack the true camping experience.
