Only downside is that you have to be military, or be with someone who is military, to get in. There’s a range of cabin styles to choose from. My girlfriend loved the chateau. It’s not camping. It’s a vacation house in the woods. Absolutely beautiful. The grounds are nice, but there are alligators.
We camp here once or twice a year. Clean bathrooms and showers. I do feel for the tent campers, as there is nothing flat about the “tent only” sites. You can, however rent an RV spot and use a tent. (Just not the water front sites. Not sure why, this is a fairly new rule, because we used to tent camp on the water front sites here.) As for the folks that mention the lack of trees and shade, in the defense of the park, it’s not their fault, it used to be very shady, but a tornado pretty much leveled this place back in 2008, and wiped out probably 90% of the trees. There’s even plaques by the doors on the shower houses, telling about the folks who took shelter in the bath houses, during the storm.
This park has great hiking, which is honestly the only positive thing I have to say about arrowhead. There are several miles of dirt bike trail that is hiker friendly, of various difficulties.
The camp ground itself is well maintained, but tent campers are not allowed to rent ANY of the sites along the lake front. We were the only people at the campground when we were there, and still were not allowed to camp in one of the lakefront spots. The "tent sites" are paved and at very extreme angles, with very sparse to no tree cover what so ever. The sites were essentially on top of each other.
We wound up renting a back up (20' I believe) site for our meager 4 person dome tent. There was water and electricity available, with clean facilities nearby. There is no wind break due to the sparse tree coverage, so pack for a chilly night if the temps dip at all.
With 40 miles of trails it’ll take us many visits to hike them all. We had six nights in March 2020 and managed ten miles of the Pine Mountain Trail’s 25 miles. Wolf Den Loop trail has five waterfalls within five miles of the Pine Mountain Trail and the loop is completed with 2.4 miles White Candle Trail. That was a full day for us the next day we did Dowdell’s Knob Loop that has some beautiful vistas and a memorial to the parks namesake. When you’re worn out from hiking the Liberty Bell pool offers great relief a strikingly beautiful pool with a flagstone bottom. Nearby is the towns of Pine Mountain and Warm Springs. I recommend Chipley’s Chicken in Pine Mountain and the Little White House and FDR museum in Warm Springs. A little farther afield is Plains Ga. where President Jimmy Carter grew up and lives to this day. The small farm he grew up on has been made into a National Historic site with recorded narration by the President. The Plains High School has also been turned into a museum.
This is a great small campground. We stayed here one night as a half way point. Site #9. I loved our site. Great view of water. This camp is right on lake. Most sites are waterfront. Site #9 had no shade but it was spring time so not bad. The wind was pretty strong coming off the lake that we didn't put out our awning or get to have a fire. many pull through sites, bathhouse was clean. Well kept camp. Lake was busy with kayakers and boaters. There is a day use area with boat ramp. Not much around area but could spend a few days here on water or fishing.
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.
Nice park. We met Youtuber I love RV Life. County Park. See "RV Camping Journal" for details.
