The small loop is perfect for a family get away. Close Creek and hiking provided plenty of activity for little ones and not overly crowded like bigger campgrounds. Water hookups shared throughout the campground, not dedicated to each site.
The RV Campground area is nicely shaded. Several sites were closed in mid-September due to social distancing. If interested in this area, I would try to lock in a spot as early as you can.
There were only a few pull through spots. Many of the sites that you back in to were pretty narrow.
The R.V. sites are well shaded and well spaced and many will accomodate large R.V.’s. Several sites offer the opportunity for two R.V.’s to camp close together and some are located along a small stream. The group sites are set up with tent pads around a central fire ring and picnic table area.
Convenient to the Ocoee River, the Ocoee Whitewater Center, Parksville Lake beaches and boat ramps, many miles of mountain bike/hiking trails and whitewater rafting, it’s a great central location for day trips.
Great site. Easy to navigate around sites. Lots of shade. Close by Occoee White Water center where the Atlanta olympics took place. Plan your visit around the water release. There schedule is online. Pretty cool to see the water trickle and then mass if water come at you.
Only issue with Parksville lake is that it is a tight drive into the sites. Otherwise nice and quiet campground.
We stayed here for the weekend when we were rafting the Ocoee. Small Campground but perfect if rafting. We were in 35 foot trailer but some tight turns in camp ground. If large rig then call for advice on site. Our site was exactly what we needed.
Our visit was nice, the park was clean and the bathrooms were clean and well lit
