Very Nice!

The tent sites are probably the best tent sites I’ve camped at. Spaced out and the pad area is great. They all have good tree coverage and are somewhat secluded.

Very nice and clean

Paved campsites. Clean bath houses. Nice shores, not too rocky. No red clay.

Historic State Park

The park located in small town. It is very quite, nothing is nearby. Walmart is 33 miles away, so you should stock up before camping there. Camp sites are big and far from each other. No WiFi.

Small but very nice campground

Very nice quiet park with a small campground (21 sites, all with electric and water). The sites are shaded, and flat with a gravel drive and tent pad. We hadn’t planned on staying here but were pleasantly surprised to find a few vacancies on the first Saturday in November. There is also an equestrian campground located several miles from the main campground. The main feature is a covered bridge, the longest one in Georgia, that is located ¾ of a mile from the campground (an easy walk). 

A nice perk was laundry facilities outside the restrooms. The restrooms were very clean. 

There are seven miles of hiking trails, five miles of bike trails, canoe rentals, and we saw several people fishing. 

There was also a nice day-use area with picnic tables within view of the covered bridge.

Not a bad spot anywhere

Very clean, quiet and a view from every spot. If you Mountainbike or hike, do the muddy spokes club trail. Challenging in spots and 4 creek crossing. Lake is crystal clear and huge! Highly recommend this park and plan to return.

Great little campground

Beautiful level sites,most on the water. Nice playground for kids. Hiked the yellow trail (1/2) mile with a 4yr old, was wide and clean. Will return.

Great!

So many great campsites and so many of them waterfront! Well maintained. Excellent gatehouse staff. Good hiking and boat launch.
Highly recommend. Lots to do in the area. River walk, canal boat tour, great art museum.
Good food and shopping nearby.

Awesome lakeside state park

Nice spacing between sites, renovated comfort stations with private showers, good little camp office, great staff, miles of lake shore, and lots of beautiful hiking. The site shown is #49.

Stunning views

All campsites have nice views of the lake. Large boat ramp, kayak and paddleboard rentals, cabins, hiking trails, nature viewing spots, walk in sites…this one has it all. Many events throughout the year for all. Store in the park in case you forgot something. Ranger lives inside the campground as well.

Large sites

These sites are all good sized lots and not on top of each other. Amenities are clean, but could use another bath house or two. Beautiful views of the easily accessible lake, a boat ramp and a park all round out this nice little getaway spot. Highly recommended.
