Great state park is right off busy I75 highway. It has two different campgrounds. One by the lake is very beautiful; site 112 lake front is great. The other campground is by the falls and deep in the wood. All site are large, level, and gravel. Cell phone signals might not good.
I stopped into Atlanta for a few nights and wanted a covid-safe accommodations and a spot to hike and shoot photography. Sweetwater Creek camping was sort of primitive camping in a city setting. You could definitely hear traffic going by the camp site as a thoroughfare runs through the park. The bathroom facilities and shower were among the cleanest I’ve seen on the road and the hiking was really great. Not busy at all in the early AM. Kudos to the camp host and staff. Although I always prefer sleeping in the back of my Land Cruiser, I’d pitch a tent and definitely stay again for a couple nights in the future.
High falls SP, GA
Stopped here on an overnight enroute south in September . Weekday and very sparsely occupied, so it was very quiet.
After seeing both campgrounds I wish I had stayed at the upper one near the lake and dam.
The lower campground has a coded gate and was in a separate area across the street and down the road. You can hike to the lake/dam area by way of Tranquility Trail (2.5 miles).
There are basically three areas, (two loops and a circle)with two latrines. The latrine in the circle area had a washer and dryer. I did not go in the other one.
Several of the sites picnic tables and fire rings sat close together so if you don’t know your “neighbors” you will get to know them.
The other sites were good size and you have some privacy. There are big grassy area in each loop and it’s all shaded.
My site was near the river but it’s a somewhat treacherous trail down to water level. The water looked like chocolate milk and was not very inviting. I would guess there had been recent flooding and high water areas. Fishing would have been easy enough.
The staff was ….. interesting. One of the woman at the check in openly voiced her opinion about a much nicer camping area at another location. Then there was the kamikaze guy on the “golf cart” speeding crazily through the campground. I realize they don’t have speedometers, however he was going faster then 15 mph.
This campground was a great place to spend the weekend. There are several historic hydro-electric areas to explore and scenic streams where you can skip rocks or fish. The camping area has several clean rest rooms with hot water showers. There is a camp store and rec area for the kiddos!
Absolutely gorgeous scenery - it’s not only on a lake but also on a dam and 3+ waterfalls. The nature trails are also really interesting. The facilities are decent and it’s particularly good if you like fishing and kayaking.
Downside if you get a campsite on the side of the dam (it’s split - one side is on the lake/dam, the other is on the river/falls) - it’s right next to private housing and those are some party loving people at 2am. Their dogs also have bark battles all night long.
5 stars for the park itself. 0 stars for the neighbors.
The campsites are very clean, and the facilities are well taken care of. It’s relatively easy to drive a trailer into your site. The downsides are that its a bit buggy - lots of flies in particular, and the sites don’t often have grass which makes it difficult if you have a pet. WiFi signal was pretty terrible, we had a hard time working remotely with our hotspots.
High Falls State Park is named for the cascade waterfall that flows from the lake in the park. It is a pretty good waterfall, on the Towaliga River. There is a campground with over 200 sites, with water & electric, 30/50 amp, Some are pull-thru, and a pioneer camping spot. There are also 6 lakeside yurts, with a small deck & picnic table. There is a small store and a dump station. You can rent kayaks, canoes and paddle-boards. There us also a small playground and a mini golf. The park also has swimming pool. Fishing is supposed to be big here, but I didn’t fish. Boat ramps are available.
You can hike along the edge of the waterfall, and there were people sunning and playing in the pools below the falls.
Campground is fairly large with lots of sites for RVs, a few Cabins, yurts, and even tent sites. There is a really nice and well maintained pool, hot tub, and splash area for small kids. The RV sites near the pool are concrete pads and well spaced out. The sites below the pool area are a little tighter and un-level and our lot was covered in ants. Since we arrived late at night we didn’t realize the amount of ants until we woke up to them crawling all over our camper. 30 amp circuit was not adequate. The breaker continually tripped while using small kitchen appliances. Other than that we had a great time and really appreciated the trash pickup twice a day and the Dollar General that was only a 1/4 mile down the road.
Beautiful park. See RV Camping Journal for details.
