Primitive sites. Very quiet-not crowded when we were there.
One of my best state park, we travel with Rv and sites was clean & including water & electric. The roads are good, it was raining wen we stay their, we had a wonderful time. We're from Israel and we travel the USA with an RV, so this park was just fantastic.
Fort Yargo is in the Winder Ga area and is close to Helen, Jefferson, Athens and Atlanta. Entering the campground is a nice paved road and leads to tent camping, cabins, yurts and RV sites.
Very clean park and has Historical area, playground, tennis court, bike and hike trails. Not to mention beach and boating area.
Picnics, camping, boating biking and camping or just day use areas. Pet friendly and all around great park.
There is a small general store, but you are so close to everything if you need it, it's there.
Gread for the Georgia Bulldog crowd as its less then 30 minutes!
I recommend this park highly.
If you’re like me and appreciate a bit of privacy when camping, the walk-in campsites at Fort Yargo are the place to go. Just a short 1-2 minutes walk from your car and bathrooms, but you feel much more secluded than the campsites in the regular campground. The 12walk-in sites are waterfront to the lake- perfect for kayaking or paddle boarding. If you want privacy, but dont want to ‘hike-in’ all your camping gear, I highly recommend these sites!
Beautiful sites that are somewhat private. Lots to do close by in the day time (biking, hiking, fishing, swimming..)
This is one of the few state parks in Georgia with yurts and also has a great flat biking trail. The lake allows for kayaking and boating and some yurts are actually right on the lake. A good glamping destination.
It has history. A beautiful lake with many activities. Great primitive camp sites as well as spacious pull through lake front spots for RVs. They also have cute yurts on the lake with a movie night for kids!
Great swimming and hiking.
large sites, lake view, walk up sites, showers
This is one of my favorite Georgia state parks. The outer loop trail is 11-12 miles long (the extra mile is your choice of including the "monster mile" or not). The inner loop is 5 miles. So there is plenty of hiking and biking trails. You can bring your own boat or rent one of many styles from the boat house. There are new boat ramps and docks at both ends of the park along with new bridges. There are even more improvements in the works for the entrance and welcome center. A negative aspect for me is that the sites are reserved on a first come first serve basis (not site specific). This leads to increased anxiety of trying to find a site and folks stalking sites days and hours prior to you leaving- it can be a bit creepy. Both bath houses are new though and kept very clean. The hosts are friendly and fire wood is available for a wider time range than other parks. Hosts also take their duties seriously keeping the sites ready for the next guests. They try their best to get to every site to rake the rocks free of litter or debris. We've stayed early spring, late spring and mid fall. We love the sites with water access but they are hard to come by. You are close to restaurants if you'd rather not cook or stores if you've forgotten something, but once you're in the park the outside world melts away.
