Really nice campground. Could use updating in the bathhouses. Lots of beautiful walking trails. Lots of sites are on the lake. Beaches and swimming areas nice.
We’ve been wanting to camp here for a while, but every time we decided to go, it’s been all booked up…. that might have been our fault though, because we like to plan last min trips. 🙂 This time we actually planned it out a few weeks in advance and got a nice spot.
I really liked the booking process, because it shows you exactly what spot is available and it even shows you a pic of the site you’ll be getting. Our site was only $35 a night + a $5 parking pass.
The campground has a lot to offer! It has a boat access point, fishing, walking and biking trails, a small putt putt course, playground area for the kids and best of all it’s pet friendly! I can’t go without saying the employees are so friendly and helpful!
Campsite wise, it has electric, water, cable, a huge picnic table & a grill/fire pit. The only negative was it wasn’t a full hookup. 😔Something else that I really loved was all of the huge natural rocks located all throughout the campground. Each campsite seemed to have their own collection of rocks and it really added to the experience. Another plus is that it has a dump station right at the exit, so on your way out you can take care of your last minute steps to finish up your camping experience. 😁
If you’re in the area I would highly recommend this campground! You can’t go wrong!
I visited Amicalola Falls State Park to complete the Georgia State Canyon Challenge. A definite place you want to visit! The climb up will literally take your breath away. Once at the top the view will take your breath away again. The Appalachian Trail marker is beside the Visitors Center and there are more then one trail up and around the falls. The campground is nice and busy, nice facilities. Reserve ahead for the good spots.
This Georgia State Park is in Gainesville on the Chattahoochee where it meets up with Lake Lanier. It was very easy to get to from the Atlanta area. We originally chose site 8 on the map but found it was pretty exposed and got direct sun all the time.
The park was very clean and still had a "new" feeling. We had a site with full hook ups. There wasn't WiFi, but the cell service was good. They did have cable. There is a beach with kayak rentals. We enjoyed a double kayak outing on the lake. We kept pretty close to shore and didn't have to fight rough water or strong currents.
Some campsites are on small hills that flatten out for your camper but then the terrain falls off. Biking trails weren't very flat. We also had to be aware of ants. Couldn't leave our dog's dish or bone out without being invaded.
Don't miss the Mountain Fresh Creamery almost 8 miles away for ice cream. Also not far from Helen, GA and wineries. Always great to spend time in the beautiful Georgia mountains.
This park in North Georgia on Lake Lanier hit our trifecta 🚴♀️🥾🚣🏼♂️.
12.5 miles of multi use trails with some elevation.
📌Additional bonus for those with strollers/small children or physical challenges —>this park had several ADA accessible trails which were paved.
Lake Lanier offered wonderful kayaking/fishing opportunities, there is also a beach for swimming. If you paddle or fish- be sure to have your fishing license/whistle/ life jacket. I got pulled over twice by water patrol.
Keith loved biking the rolling country roads surrounding the park. Too hilly for me outside the park but I am a wimp about climbing hills.
We could do it all easily from our campsite which had 30/50amp, water and lucky us there was a grey water drain within hose reach. (These Grey water drains are dispersed randomly throughout the campground not always near your site) There is also cable hook up. Verizon service was okay.
We stayed here for 10 days in mid July and bugs were minimal…as long as you were inside or armed at dusk with repellent or fans.
The wooded campsites and shady trails made the whole summer adventure great!
There are primitive tent camping areas and lovely 8 cottages/cabins too!)
