Situated on Lake Burton, beside the trout hatchery, this small, yet busy campground offers fishermen a good supply of trout, and they are delicious! Moccasin Creek's staff is superior. The setting is peaceful. Hiking to Hemlock Falls is a must. Even in the hottest days of summertime, the trail is cool. The majority of the trail is right by the bubbling stream. The hike is a mile in, mile out, but can be a little tricky in spots, especially in wet weather. The Falls are well worth the trek.
Sites are super close together. There was construction on the hatchery dam that started at 8:00 am M-F while we were there. Bathhouses were very clean. Everything was tidy, just could use about 30% less spaces.
This is a really nice campground but the sites are really close together. We were at site 18 and had a lake view. There is a trout stream for kids that is periodically stocked and it was a quick drive to Helen. We will definitely be back but will be picky about which site we get.
Great place to take our 3 year old great-grandson. Grounds are kept spotless. Camped here several times and never had a complaint.
With Lake Burton on one side and a beautiful mountain on the other. If you want a relaxing weekend with very nice staff I highly recommend Moccasin Creek State park. Definitely will be back
Very nice park. All rangers are friendly and so are the other campers. No noise or parties too late so we slept great. Massive lake, we rented a pontoon and had an amazing time. Had special fishing areas for kids, places to clean fish. We even went to wildcat creek to the rockslide and had a great time, even with the cold water. They even have a mini ‘beach’ on part of the lake. Would definitely camp there again.
this campground is very kid friendly. they have a stream they stock with trout for kids 12 and under and seniors 65 and older. this park is a great place to allow kids to get into fishing and feel like they have accomplished something. the wildlife here is also beautiful and very abundant.
This is a nice flat shaded campground on Lake Burton. RV and tent sites are all together next to a fish hatchery which allows kids and elderly to fish for free. Canoe and kayak rentals are available. Across the street is a nice trail. The park is usually full but due to the size it does not feel overcrowded when you are there.
Great location to hiking and waterfalls. Upon check in we noticed fresh gravel laid down and is done so after each camper. Clean park and nice benches near the lake.
The campground hosts are awesome. As soon as campers leave they swoop in and clean it like it’s a hotel room. There are two bath houses. One is newer and much nicer. Sites are fairly close (not as close as KOA), but does not feel cramped. Great spot for fishermen and water sport. Right on Lake Burton. Cool breezes and cool nights. Great options for day trips to either visit small towns or hike trails.
