This recreation area is part of Walter F. George Lake
This is a boater campground and marina. It is nice and flat, with sand sites. Water and electric at the sites sites, plus a dump station. We ended up near the campground dumpster so it wasn’t pleasant. It is a short drive to Providence Canyon State Park. There were armadillo in the woods, and blue birds. There is a museum, but it was closed when we were there. There are many nicer State Parks in Georgia!
This campground is great for people that like to fish. Providence canyon is close by which is great!
This is a good fishing destination. Campground has a sandbox and playground but for a little more you can get a hotel room. Boat rentals available for fishing and close to the museum of wonder in seale, alabama
We were looking for something to do this weekend and we decided to camp at Florence Marina State Park and explore Providence Canyon.
First off, Florence Marina is beautiful from the time you drive through the entrance to when you reach the campground! There's a boat ramp, fishing pier, a private fishing dock for campers and mini golf.
The campground is a bit small and some sites are close together but not too cramped. There is a camp store, located in the park, with many items that you may have forgotten to pack, as well as fish bait and fishing supplies!
The bath house (comfort station) appears to be recently renovated and is cleaned multiple times per day. The bath house has several showers, including ADA accessible shower stalls.
The campground host was constantly cleaning the bath house and picking up trash around the campground. The Ranger patrolled the campground on a regular basis, as did the Stewart County Sheriff's Office.
The only downside to our weekend camping trip was the gnats!! The campground host told us that the gnats aren't usually as bad, however, the recent heavy rain is the cause of them being so bad this particular weekend.
Other than the gnats, this is the perfect place to pitch a tent or set your travel trailer up!
Providence Canyon State Park is only 9 miles from Florence Marina and it is a must-see!! We spent Saturday morning hiking there before returning too our site.
FYI: There isn't much, as far as shopping goes, in the area so grab your groceries before you arrive! If you must go shopping, Eufala, AL is approximately 24 miles away and that is your closest large store (other than a Dollar General in Georgetown…approximately 16 miles from the park).
We have Verizon Wireless and we had 1-2 bars of LTE during our stay…sometimes our signal would revert to 3G and be painfully slow!!
Another perk, if you just can't go without, is the sites have cable TV connections…we did not use this service but some campers did.
