My wife and I came here in our pop up camper. We had never even heard of this camp ground and booked it primarily because we were looking for a nice campground with availability. We arrived after the Trading Post / Office was closed, and we hit a snag right off the bat. Our campsite (21) was really not a site for a pop up camper. This was definitely more of a tent site. Luckily the camp host was super nice and accommodating. He put us in spot 23, and luckily we were able to reserve it for the whole stay. This was a nice private camp site, great for a pop up or tent, but wouldnt be good for a big RV. There were trails all behind our site, and it was secluded which worked out great because our dog could relax without people passing the site constantly. The staff here is extremely pleasant and very helpful and facilities are extremely clean.
We played 9 holes at The Creek, a real nice golf course that is in the state park. We really enjoyed the golfing here, but we are not advanced golfers. We also fished off the dock at Lake Rutledge. What a beautiful lake. We would have rented a boat, but we were not able to due to Covid.
We were so happy here, that we have been talking about returning with the kids. There is a miniature golf course and a playground. We may even ask the grandparents to come. They don't like camping but there are beautiful cabins here.
I highly recommend Hard Labor Creek State Park. A hidden gem.
