Cave Springs Recreation Area is situated within the picturesque farming community of Olinger Gap. Highlights of this recreation area include a small spring fed swimming pond, access to Stone Mountain Trail and Wilderness, and a short hike to an overlook of the Olinger Gap Community. The campground here has 37 campsites including 9 sites with electric hookups.
We stayed here in June 2019 for three days in our pop up at a site with electricity. No water is available. The campground is heavily wooded with space between sites. There are trails nearby, however several trails had bridges that were rotted away and not passable. There was a volunteer crew working on the main extensive trail to Stone Mountain while we were there which was wonderful! The bathroom had flush toilet and showers but did not seem as if it had been cleaned in several days. Campground host was very nice and drove around occasionally to check on us. We stayed Thursday through Sunday and I will say the first two nights were bliss - quiet and peaceful. A wonderful experience! We saw a deer walk right up to our campsite the first morning. However, Saturday night brought loud, disrespectful campers. We actually saw one camper trying to pull out one of the fixed grills in another site because their site did not have a grill. Rather than move sites, they practically destroyed the grill at another site. The campers next to us were carrying on a conversation and cussing every other word as loud as possible way after 10 pm. Sunday morning the bathroom was trashed … my husband said there was a dirty diaper laying in the bathroom floor next to the trash can. Why? People — don’t ruin things for the rest of us. Stay home if this is how you want to camp. This place would be awesome if people treated it as such! I camp for quiet and peace in nature. Unfortunately others camp to party and trash their surroundings.
