The road intro the small campground is a 25% grade that is incredibly steep. The road in the campground has a very steep hard left angle turn that is difficult to make for a large rig. In my opinion, this is a nice campground for smaller rigs and tent campers. We have a 36 TT and I consider this way to large for this campground. Prices also feel a little high for the campground.
The hiking trails are amazing. The falls are beautiful. It was very busy parking was a bit of a challenge but worth it. Will definitely go back.
Nice state park with good amenities. Loved the hike and waterfalls. Roads are extremely steep getting to the campground.
This campground is great for a range of campers who enjoy hiking or just looking at a beautiful waterfall. We planned a night here before starting a section hike on the AT. The short hike up from the welcome center let us know we were perfectly unprepared with backpacks over 40lbs.The next day the grounds keeper let us stow extra weight from our packs in the storage area so we didn’t have to hike back down to our cars.
The bathrooms were nice enough and warm in November. Also the area had plenty of firewood to forage if you didn’t bring your own. Unfortunately it had rained the previous day so we should have bought a starter log and firewood at the welcome center.
We were only there 1 night, but I could see spending a few days and enjoying the area. Very accommodating to tents or campers.
Primitive camping, beautiful place. Good place to run with dogs!
we really enjoyed our night here. it was beautiful and peaceful! the bathrooms could have been cleaner but overall it was great!
Reserve your spot..This place is popular..We love camping and fishing in the mountains of Georgia.We have been comfortable in the primitive area and in the RV area with our tents..My family loves this park..and for those of you who just want to relax and be in luxury..Go to the lodge and watch the incredible sunset.
This is the park for every one. To walk in backcountry sites to a room in their lodge, everyone should make a trip out here. They have so many activities and things to do.
The camping locations vary from tents to cabins. The locations is beautiful. The AT approach begins here at the visitors center and continues for 8 miles to Springer Mountain. It is strenuous hiking up the falls, but absolutely worth it. You won’t be disappointed. There is also a fitness trail and a wheelchair/stroller friendly trail by the lodge. Don’t miss out on the ranger talks. We were able to see a few raptors. Very cool!
Beautiful falls if you can get to the top. Moderate hike to the top of the falls.
