Great campsite for beginners and families

Great spot by the lake.  Private, plenty of access to the water, not too far from parking lot end.  Watch the boats launch if you want to or easy to fish.  Will definitely go back.

Hidden Gem

Booked this campground for our Memorial Day weekend. Luckily they had one full hookup site left for us. You can book sites daily or monthly. When you’re heading to the campsite be cautious of the road you need to turn at because they don’t have a sign. The offices closes at 6:30, but if you don’t get there on time like we did they leave your reservation info outside the door. We really lucked up on our site(#H) because it was right on the end and it was pretty close to the lake. The only downfall to our site was we were right next to the dump site. Luckily we only smelt it once, so it was too bad. They have several swings overlooking the lake for a very relaxing view. You’re allowed to fish in the lake, but no swimming or kayaking. They have a really cool trail that goes behind the lake that’s a mile long. The staff was super nice and welcoming as well. Just FYI they only take cash or check payments. They have a lot of grocery stores and restaurants pretty close so you don’t have to travel far if you need anything. We had a lot of fun and we’ll definitely be coming back if we’re ever in the area. 🙂

BEDBUGS!!! WARNING!!! PLEASE google research, bedbugs and cedar creek cabin

BEDBUGS, GOOGLE PLEASE This is the scam they run, Yes scam!!! Cedar Creek cabin rentals is not licensed or permitted in the state of Georgia, as an overnight stay cabin,( yes I know you stay overnight, that's the scam)and therefore does not have to follow the same safety and laws of a regular overnight stay, such as a hotel would, this is because they are purchasing each lot in an individual's name, instead of company, to prevent having to pay any rental tax to state, and not having to follow public health code!!, meaning the public county health dept can't ticket them or help you!!!! Scary stuff, especially during Covid19, they do not have to clean after each use leaving you taking a FATAL chance with your health.. BEDBUGS!!!!!We arrived May 17th for a 2 night stay at OASIS,(ONasty) with is in a cul de sac with PURE GOLD, DREAMSCAPE, TRANQUILTY, ISPIRATION, AND THERE ARE BEDBUGS!!!! NO MATTER WHAT BS WENDY AND TOM TELL YOU PLEASE!!!!! do not rent from these evildoers+++ STOP CONS LIKE THESE, AND GIVE TO THE REAL HARD WORKING PEOPLE OF HELEN RENTALS..***Rent from a company that is permitted in Georgia as an overnight stay, that's the question.. CedarCreekCabins are Not insured or permit to protect you, only to take your money,****

Good Last Minute Spot

We drove past Helen to find our usual camping spot unceremoniously blocked with a large boulder 😑 Turns out most spots were blocked off (I guess due to the pandemic—but we’re trying to socially distance!) This spot was also technically closed with the gate locked but we decided to lug our stuff past it anyway. Luckily we had our water shoes with us bc you have to walk through a stream to get to this spot. It has a nice established fire ring and access to the stream. Secluded from the main road but hikers going down the side road can see you pretty clearly. The one negative about this spot is that there is broken glass everywhere! Including what looked like windshield glass?? I guess someone had a rager at some point that included a bottle fight 🙄. So be sure to bring some camp slippers.

Wonderful Trip

We stayed one night at backcountry campsite number 3 and we loved it. The campsite was awesome- it had a great view and plenty of space, and was a bit off the trail and felt very secluded which we liked. It is high up, so it did get windy and colder than we expected. We hiked over 10 miles and really enjoyed the trails and tons of beautiful views. You do need to pay attention to the map though because we did get off on the wrong trail a couple times. We did have a bear sighting as well! We’re pretty inexperienced campers, but we highly recommend!

Outstanding hiking opportunities

Stayed at this beautiful park and enjoyed every minute of it! Very nice specious sites to include primitive tent sites. Trail access to the Appalachian Trail among many others. Very clean restrooms all with showers and hot water. The only down falls were no sewer hook ups at the sites (there are two dump sites) and no cable or internet access. But who needs the tech hook up when you have all this nature.

Scenic space next to lake and mountain.

Excellent campground with ultra-helpful staff. Per views of the mountain with many lots on the lake.
