Wonderful property but awful management

property is awesome but manager got arrested for selling meth and pulling a weapon on campers. Sewage everywhere right next to your camper. Gross!

Separated, serene lots

First time renting a teardrop trailer and camping in it, lot was tricky for us to back into but we managed and the set up was great with a fire ring, picnic table, potable water and hook up. Also a great view. Nice and quiet site with bathrooms and showers nearby.

Tent by the river

Awesome spot about 20 min from Helen GA. Back your vehicle right up to your spot for easy unloading and using your vehicle for extra space for whatever. We tent camped right along the river.

Primitive Awesomness

Jake Best was a campground I had been wanting to visit for a while and I was not disappointed. The campground is in the Citico creek wilderness, and is right on the river. The area is absolutely beautiful. The water is crystal clear, and the area is known for trout fishing and big game hunting, in fact the campground is regularly full of hunters. The campground is small, and has a vault toilet. The campground is first come first served, and is $8 per night.

The sites are spacious, and all looked mostly level. There is no water or electric hookups, it is primative. There is no cell service here, but you can get radio reception. If you are looking to escape civilization and get out in the woods, this place is perfect!

Great Campground !

We started camping last year and have been to a lot of campgrounds all around lake Hartwell and Twin Lakes for us was the best one. We love it. We have a boat and get the same site every time and are always happy staying there.

Has it all

RV/tent camping and cabin rentals. Campsites had wifi and pretty good tv signal. There's also a lodge/hotel on site with a restaurant, with gorgeous views overlooking the valley below. Camping sites are spaced well apart with electric, water and fire rings. The campgrounds also feature a bathhouse and laundry.

Begin your Appalachian Trail journey here with 604 steps to the top of a beautiful waterfall.

Easy access

We usually arrive after hours so the lighting along the roads was a big help. The sites are close together with the neighbor’s hook ups next to your picnic table. (Not great) In the valley with mountains all around and a beautiful rushing creek.

Beautiful trout stream.

The entrance to this park is right across the street to an entrance to the Appalachian Trail. A beautiful trout stream runs through the park, close to all the campsites. Bathrooms and showers are clean. Wonderful place to tent camp, van camp, or tow a SMALL trailer to (a pop-up would be perfect). The road to this campground is very narrow, the hill is very steep, and there is at least one very tight hairpin turn. Unless there is another way into this lovely park that I am unaware of, I would not attempt to tow a 5th wheel or other large trailer to this location. Place is beautiful though. Tow your pop-up or pitch a tent. You'll be glad you came.

Friendly Staff and Quiet Camping

I stayed here for 2 nights of winter camping in December 2020. All sites have electric and water but we were tent camping and didn’t use either. We stayed in site 5 which is close to bathrooms but not too close. We had a beautiful view of the lake and our site was right next to the river. There’s a few small docks across the pathway that overlook the water so it felt like we had our own private dock to enjoy while camping out. 

Site 5 is a back in slot but it was my favorite camp site out of the entire park. Big enough for 2 tents and 2 cars. No campsite at this campground is very secluded but Site 5 didn’t feel as open as some of the others might have been.

The bathhouse was very clean and there’s a laundry room there for you to do laundry. Bring your kayaks and explore the lake using the docks close by. There’s a huge pavilion and playground for kids to enjoy as well as a nice grassy area for dogs. The camp hosts on site are very nice and there’s a nature trail and short little hike to a beautiful waterfall less than a mile away. I got 1-2 bars of service with Verizon LTE which was nice to be able to still check weather, etc.
