Pioneer campsite 1 is very nice.
As stated by another reviewer, if rain is in the forecast, probably would not want to stay.
Large site with fire pit and picnic table. Table is chained to a tree. No tent pad, you can pick where you want to sleep. There are lots of trees for hammocks. And you are right on the water. Rocks shoals right off the site.
The site is down a path from a parking area. There is a water faucet about 1/4 way down the trail.
Phone service with ATT and Sprint/T-Mobile is non existent at the campsite. 200 yards uphill at bathhouse service is available.
Very private site.
Will reserve again.
Very nice quiet park with a small campground (21 sites, all with electric and water). The sites are shaded, and flat with a gravel drive and tent pad. We hadn’t planned on staying here but were pleasantly surprised to find a few vacancies on the first Saturday in November. There is also an equestrian campground located several miles from the main campground. The main feature is a covered bridge, the longest one in Georgia, that is located ¾ of a mile from the campground (an easy walk).
A nice perk was laundry facilities outside the restrooms. The restrooms were very clean.
There are seven miles of hiking trails, five miles of bike trails, canoe rentals, and we saw several people fishing.
There was also a nice day-use area with picnic tables within view of the covered bridge.
Great hiking trails. Beautiful covered bridge.
All sites but three were pull through with three primitive sites. Bathhouse was clean. Trails were pleasant and the bridge and falls were awesome. Main campground closes for 3 months but the equestion side stays open. make sure you are coming into park for the correct campground since campers cant go across bridge.
Watson Mill Bridge state park is very quiet in the off season! Just what we were looking for!
This is a beautiful park with very nice trails. But if there is rain in the forecast do not, for the love of God, do not camp in the pioneer sites. You will get flooded. It's mostly downhill on a shifty walkway full of rocks and DANGER! But the rest of the campground was very nice. Level lots with tent pads and clean bathrooms. We prefer primitive camping and although it rained a lot, the pioneer sites were very nice and private. I'd definitely return to this park, but I'll make sure to check the weather first.
Park pass is $5 but the park is beautiful and a great way to spend the afternoon!
