This campground is in great need of some upgrades. We have stayed at much better KOA campgrounds. Dirt roads in need of repairs, bath houses are run down, camping spots are so close you can hear your neighbor snoring! We arrived to find that our reservation was mishandled so our site was changed last minute (even though our reservation was paid 2 weeks prior). Ended up on an unlevel dirt spot 6 feet from another camper. The only good thing about our stay is that is was only 1 night!
My wife and I are on our way to Florida from Nashville. We are not in a hurry and stopped north of Atlanta for a couple of nights at Red Top Mountain State Park. It is a great park.
We arrived around 4:00 pm and the office was closed but we knew what our campsite number was in this park. The park was a little farther off I-75 than I thought it was but to be honest my wife made three reservation. What a huge surprise when we pulled up to the park. A dam and lake and a very clean area. Driving past this area we came to a playground which was very well kept. On a little farther was the campground. From what I saw each lot is a pull through and very, very spacious and clean. The trees had moss growing in them and there was a gentle breeze blowing.
I want to come back and spend more time here! This place is so inviting and peaceful.
We love this state park park with its large wooded campsites, 375 acre lake and river for paddling & fishing, 7 miles of multi use trails for hiking & biking trails, playgrounds, and putt putt golf. Home to gopher turtles, alligators,deer and seasonal home to vultures and bald eagles makes wildlife spotting fun. The landscape runs the gamut from coastal plain to pine forest. Those visiting for the day may enjoy the catfish cabin restaurant just outside the park. Since the park is only 7 miles from 1-75 this can easily be a great overnight stop.
Reed Bingham is located on route 37 which is an Agro-tourism road. The route features vineyards, olive farms, boutique hotels, specialty shops, local produce, farms and two state parks….to name just a few places for you to visit. We also enjoyed biking to the Horse creek winery in Sparks, Ga just 7 miles away. (This winery is also a harvest host).

Campground- sites are large and graveled. Outer loop locations have more shade trees. Premium sites have sewer in addition to water/30/50AMP picnics tables,fire rings and some with grills too. There are no cabins.
The paddle in campground for 30 is pretty cool since it is its own island. There is also a nice group/pioneer camping and a couple of walk in tent sites that are on a little island with a bridge walkway.
There are rentals for bikes and paddling. The beach for swimming is more of a wading beach and since I have seen the alligators in this lake i do not recommend swimming anywhere else on your own.
Paddling/Fishing is fun on the 375 acre lake. The lake also connects to little river and it is a @ 3 hour leisurely up river paddle to Red Robin Boat ramp in Adel Georgia (aka Colquitt boat ramp) ->if you have a way to drop off and paddle downriver to Reed Bingham it would be more relaxing.
The 5k running/walking route for the annual Little River 5k is easy to follow in the park for your activity pleasure.
We stopped here enroute to an event and for a smaller State Park Reed Bingham was nice. There is a huge lake to play in and plenty of Fisher folk . The staff said there were alligators but we didn’t run across any. There were several intertwining trails which had some interesting fauna and wildlife. Cool kayak/canoe trail to check out too. The campground was about half full, with pull throughs and level sites available. Not much shade but with fall weather it was very comfortable. Lots of sand.
Campsites– some spots are spacious like the pull thru but it appears everyone shares one electrical box with a neighbor. Pull thru sites are nice packed gravel/clay and a lot of the back in sites are grassy. There are longer stays available here and some of the sites have that “little too comfortable” look. There is a military base in town, so I am sure this used by military and government workers at times. You will have to call and make your reservation. From past experiences- it is good to double check your reservation or have them email you/mail you your confirmation- check to make sure the site you are assigned has the hook up you are paying for and if you have to share an electrical box you need to find out if there are two 50 amps or if one user gets a 30 amp and the other gets a 50AMP.
There are a couple of cabins and there is also a tent/group camping area too.
Bathhouse- has a washers/ dryers in a screened in area. Bathroom facility is older but maintained. NOTE–> Only one Shower and one family shower
WIFI was only ok- we thought we would get better being so close to Albany. It was better with our boosters, and we used verizon jet packs with our sprint phones.
Activities- we always camp here when we participate in the annual Nut Roll biking event (30-100 mile options)
There is a small wild life park with animal exhibits(extra fee) , hiking trails, mountain biking trails, fantastic playground and water element for kids, BMX track, remote control car track, disc golf and kayaking/fishing just outside the park entrance. There is a more extensive review on our website about the activities.
Open and when I mean open space,all over the Park. Great for fishing Boating, Swimming and they have a great little Museum for the Veterans…. Outside plenty of Military Tanks and Airplanes to see throughout the use in our Military.
