Quiet,clean and level

Small campground, but awesome sites. Level and clean concrete pad. Nice picnic table provided. Full hookups and all have a view of the water even if you aren’t right on a water site. Very spacious sites with plenty of room. Bathrooms are clean and tiled. The water saver shower was a little strange at first as I had not seen one like it before. Push button that stays on for like 30 seconds. You have to keep pushing the button, but it wasn’t too bad. Two washer and dryers in front of the bathrooms that are free to use. Plenty of walk area for dog walks. No playground or frills but we personally don’t need those things and really enjoyed this campground.

Awesome place to stay

Joe’s RV park is a awesome place to stay. We have stayed here for several months with awesome rates.

Quiet and comfortable - fire pits available - grilling allowed - love able and quiet town - grocery shopping within a mile of the park -free water and lights with no limit.

Good grassy place to park. We have great comments from renters from Georgia Power, Pike and gas line campers.

Sites have great size

This is a beautiful place, with great sites, that have a good space between each other, this way you can have some privacy!

Fantastic Campground

Spent this past weekend at Ridge Road Campground. This is an amazing campground. The staff is wonderful. The entire campground is spotless, clean, and exceptionally well maintained. We were in site #67. All the sites are large and well spaced. Tons of trees and most sites are on right on the lake. The water is amazingly clear. If you look at my previous reviews, we’ve camped at many campgrounds around the Southeast this year and we have found that George State Parks and COE campgrounds are at the top of our list. Ridge Road is now in our top 5 overall. I highly recommend this campground if you like quiet, relaxation, kayaking, fishing, or boating in general.

Currently Mostly Closed (Aug 2020)

Nice campground. We stayed in the primitive camping area with our adventure trailer. Right on the water, it was a great site. Ants can be a huge problem though during the summer. 

N.B. As of 3 August 2020, Primitive Camping and Semi-Hookup (Electric Only) Camping areas  are closed at Pointes West. RV Camping is open, for local traffic only. RV's must contain a restroom. No visitors.

Ft. Gordon Camping

Decent campground on a small lake (no boating allowed). Keep in mind this campground is on the US Army's Ft. Gordon installation. As a result, the only authorized users of this campground are: "Active Duty, National Guard, Reservists, Retired Military, 0-100% DAV, Purple Heart Recipients, Former POW, Veteran Caregivers, DoD Civilians." Open year round.

Quiet Lakeside Campground

Winfield is a compartively little-known USACE campground situated on a peninsula near the more heavily-traffic Mistletoe State Park. Quiet and peaceful, it's tucked up the Little River and therefore not on the main body of Clarks Hill Lake (Lake Strom Thurmond, if you're form South Carolina) which sees a good deal of boat traffic (pontoon boats in particular) in the summer months. Great for water activities (kayaking, SUP, etc) with awesome evening views.

Gorgeous location, lacking in upkeep

I’ve camped at Petersburg multiple times of the past 5 years and generally love it. Bartram Trail, terrific mountain for biking and hiking passes through the property. Some of the sites are stellar.

What I noticed on my most recent trip is that the quality of maintenance has declined. The restrooms on our loop weren’t really cleaned deeply over our 4 night stay with used band aids in the corner or the shower stall. I alerted two staff members about the leaking spigot in our site and that was never addressed.

I’m returning in early November with a few friends for some mountain biking and hope things improve.
