We camped here a few weeks ago on week long journey through Georgia and Alabama. This was one of best campgrounds we experienced. Large, clean, spacious campsites. Very friendly staff. Right on the lake. Great for photos and fishing. We will be going back.
My parents stayed here and they had such a positive experience. The camping host (Miss Mary and Sophie) were very nice, welcoming, and even ran into town to get ice for them after a long day of driving. The grounds are well kept and overall it was a great stay. Thanks for the great hospitality. -Maria Quatse
This campground was an awesome find as it is tucked in beside the Tallulah River only 3 miles from the Tallulah River Gorge which offers site seeing and hiking. The campground is set up for RVs, primitive tent sites, covered tent shelters, and cabins that are for rent right on the the river. They also offer indoor and outdoor showers and have a recreation building along with a park for the kids. Pulling in to this campground gives you an exotic feel as bamboo, pine trees, and awesome fire pits fill the scene. The hosts are amazing and down to earth and will go out of there way to make sure you are enjoying your vacation from reality, all the while giving you your space and privacy. I am not sure what events they hold on other holidays, but on the 4th of July, they had an awesome classic rock band that played for a few hours and shot off fireworks. If you want to camp or glamp…this is the place!
We stayed here for a quick overnight. Very quite and pretty. The camp host Jeff and Joy are AMAZING. We were running late and they stayed late for us. Once there they we so great. Got us into a awesome site. We pull a 30 foot trailer and had no issues.
We stayed at Magnolia Springs over Halloween weekend 2019. The park had several great activities for kids, including trick or treating and a hayride to take the kids from site to site. We were on site 1 (right on the corner) and had a view of the lake across the street.
The playground was nice, bath house well kept and not far from the site, and plenty of area for bike riding (not too many hills for the kids). I preferred a wide open site for this trip (due to trick or treating/ site decorating contest) but several had good shade, privacy, and a closer view of the lake.
The museum is fascinating (it’s locked, you pay entry at the front office and they give you a key).
We went to Hamburg to try out our new rooftop tent and work out any bugs. It was early April and a bit colder than we anticipated, but still fun. We got site 27, which is absolutely beautiful with easy water access (probably good for kayaks and canoes, but the lake isn’t big enough for boats and there is no swimming allowed due to gators).
The walk from site 27 to the bathroom was a bit of a bear, especially in the dark. The way the park is laid out, I think all sites are about the same distance from the bath house (which was very clean the whole stay). Also, sites 4 and up are all water sites, though the layout of some of them is very confusing.
Be aware that there is zero cell service (of any kind) here, so if you’re looking to do any work or keep in touch, you’ll have to drive to a different part of the park for Wi-Fi at the main office.
The grist mill wasn’t open due to COVID but several folks were fishing in the area.
We booked for a primitive camp site. The lady on the phone told us it was a 3/4 mi walk. We didn’t mind until it got hot (high 80’s-mid 90’s) on our second trip, a park ranger told us we could drive up to the site. (I only back up this suggestion if you have a 4WD) Of course after walking all that way in the heat we wish we knew that beforehand. So we drove to the pioneer campsite and he said to turn where you see the poles with the chains broke off. He said if the chains are down you’re free to drive up. I was iffy about parking there (after i paid the parking fee of course because of honor code) but by the fresh tire tracks and later hearing someone else’s car beep to lock i felt better about keeping the trucks there and so we did. Also beforehand i saw the weekend we went was all booked up and for how booked it was we were surprised we didn’t see that many cars and now we know why we didn’t after seeing those fresh tracks. Great camping area very dispersed but enough that if you have good vision through the trees you could see other camp sites. As for water we had to drive to the RV park for it. We couldn’t find a dumpster to dump our trash in so if anyone has that information i would love to see that in your review because we want to come back in the winter time. Great hiking, boating, kayaking, and fishing!!! Overall we had a great weekend there and this review was long overdue! As mentioned. Definitely returning in the winter!
We stayed 3 nights in the “walk in” tent area of this state park. The park called the day prior to our reservation to see if we would need firewood, a big plus. “Walk in” is a little deceiving, because, gladly, you can drive to the 3 tent spots and park a vehicle in this area. We stayed in spot 29. The three tent spots all have water at each site. They all have spacious tent pads in a wooded, heavily shaded area. 29 has the tent pad very close to the “road/trail”, but there was very little traffic on it. We arrived at night, and the camp host was friendly and directed us to the site. The park was full, but the sites were spaced well and the park was pretty quiet. The bathrooms were very clean and did have hot water. There were numerous signs posted for alligators and bears. I didn’t put a lot of stock into the bear signs due to the fact that none of the garbage cans or anything were “bear-proof”. We did finally see one gator as we walked by the spring one of the days. I thought that we had seen on their site that no hammocks were allowed, or anything tied to the trees, so we didn’t take our hammocks. This was not the case, as there were many hammocks up when we were there. You can look up the history of this place on their website. We were there May 8-11 and only had one colder evening and weather in the 70’s during the day. We would definitely go back.
