This is where President Roosevelt came to relax. Warm Springs and Roosevelt's Little White House Historic Site is a short drive away. Calloway Gardens and a drive through animal park are all close by. The campground is nice with lots of trees so there is some privacy. There are 2 campground loops, and a small lake. Most are water and electric. There is s dump station. There is a horse stable, too. Dowdell's Knob where President Roosevelt sometimes picnicked at King’s Gap. There is still a picnic area there, with A life-size sculpture of the former president.
The Civilian Conservation Corps built many of the facilities during the Great Depression, including cottages and the Liberty Bell Swimming Pool which is spring fed.
We went here prior to “site specific” booking and still somehow managed a lakefront site right next to a shelter house. Luckily, the shelter wasn’t used by any groups while we were there.
The driveways are gravel which is where we pitched the tents. We had access to the lake for fishing and our canoe from the back of our site. The sites are somewhat close together and not private.
Some of the sites were much smaller and had a view of the lake (but no access) and some closer to the back were larger and more private. Many were multi-level.
The camp store was well stocked including bait for fishing and other fishing/camping gear. The camp store is separate from the registration/check-in store.
There are plenty of trails and you are a short drive from a beautiful overlook.
FD Roosevelt State Park between Pine Mountain and Warm Springs GA offers 23+ miles of hiking trails that are highly trafficked by day hikers, runners, families, and picnickers. Peak seasons can make the trails crowded.
Campsites and cabins are available for drive ins, but there are designated back country camping sites along the trail. Unfortunately information regarding the sites is sparse and vague at best. However you can park at multiple locations to allow you to customize your hiking to camping needs, and all the camp grounds seemed to be imclean and in good shape.
I camped at the group campground and it is close to good hiking trails but nothing super special. The sites were spread out enough but there was only one shelter. sites were flat and there was some shade but not as much as I would have liked.
Nice state park. It has a lake with boat rental available as well as lots of hiking paths and a playground. As with many state parks, it is crowded and the sites are close together. Pine Mountain is a beautiful town. I suggest visiting the Little White House, Wild Safari, and Callaway Gardens, which are all very close. If you like overlooks, Dowdell’s Knob is also worth checking out.
FDR State Park campground is amazing! The campground is tucked away in a separate area in the park and very quiet. The sites are large and level. There are several pull-through sites available.
If you're into hiking and geocaching, THIS is the park for you! The Pine Mountain Trail is 23 miles of sheer bliss!! There is actually a mountainous area here and the views are amazing!
If you're wanting to explore the area, beautiful Callaway Gardens is just a few miles away from the park, as is Warm Springs (home of FDR's Little White House)!
We have camped here multiple times and each time is a treat!!
Wouls recommend this campground once it is site specific. Many of the sites are small or poorly positioned. Lots to do and great hiking. Read a longer review with photos on the link. https://imaginecamper.com/2018/02/10/fdr-state-park/
This is one of my favorite Georgia State Parks. There are many sites to choose from and there are plenty of things to do in the area. This park is great for hikers -- lots of great trails. I went with my three kids and we all had a blast.
This park has great camping with many, many sites of various sizes, all for roughly $30 a night. This may sound steep but the amenities by far make up for it.
Each site has a dirt or gravel pad, water and electricity hookups and are all situated within walking distance of a bathroom. There is also a centralised trading Post in the camp, separate from the main office. The bathrooms are all spotless and each area has a camp host constantly cleaning.
The views are awesome and there is some awesome yoking near by, as well as some very well marked trails in the area.
We camped here during a geocaching event. The campsites were a good size and we found one near a bathroom which was great since we were in a tent. The bathrooms could use a little updating but other than that the place was very nice, including the staff. The sun rises were amazing and worth getting up for. There are lots of trails to explore as well as areas and attractions nearby.
