Incredible views at a great state park! Stayed three nights over Easter Weekend in the East Rim. The East Rim is located on the main park road and about 5 minutes walk from the Trail Heads. Your camper is on display for all the day trippers but TOTALLY WORTH IT for the majestic views! Your afternoon stroll includes 2 waterfalls, multiple overlooks, woodlands, and gorgeous canyons. We drove over to the West Rim and it was much more woodsy and secluded, but we were there for the walking so did not mind the activity and open sites of the East Rim.
Bathhouse was tidy, stocked, and heated. Could use a deep cleaning, but nothing that was unsanitary. Super hot showers! Washing machine had been removed but did have a sink to hand-wash and a dryer. Each bathhouse in the West Rim was supposed to have laundry as well so could drive over if necessary.
Our site did have plastic and debris scattered around including inside the fire pit, so we left it cleaner than we found it.
Loved the fact that they had aluminum recycling!
The surroundings absolutely deserve 5 stars, just docking one for the trash left at the site. Will be back to tackle more of the trails!
Stayed 3 nights in mid-March. Very convenient to Savannah as well as SC border. Plenty of shopping and stores (Target, Lowe’s etc) within 15 minutes. Three clean and well stocked bathhouses with hot hot showers and laundry in each. Very quiet campground while we were there during the week.
Pros… Beautiful natural surroundings Several nature trails with historic markers 2 dump stations Central trash (no recycling) All sites are large, some are MASSIVE
Cons… Our site could use a good cleaning, bits of trash scattered around and needs gravel refresh.
Booking site advertised cable but none at our site (perhaps the premium FHU pull throughs did?)
Hookups for back in sites are very close to the road so be mindful that you might need extended cords if you want to get further into the area.
We love to support the State Parks so happily paid the $45 a night.
Wonderful state park in South Georgia! Our site was on the water and had beautiful sunset views. Newly renovated after Hurricane Michael, the upper loop had new gravel pads and plenty of space between sites. Great fire pit and grill combo along with a large and sturdy picnic table. The hiking trail just reopened and was an easy 2 miles. Tons of animal tracks to look for and identify! The playground close to the camping loop is nearly complete and looks super fun for the Littles. Bathhouse was brand new and showers were hot. Definitely coming back!
Wonderful State Park in southern Georgia! Chose our site from the pictures and it was perfect. Sites in lower loop one were spaced out and the back in sites were tucked into the woods, just the way we had hoped. Most sites are gravel and ours was well maintained and level, with a new large picnic table and fire pit with grill cover. The basic cable was a bonus! Restrooms were older but clean and well stocked. The upper loop 2 had a brand new bath house, and both had laundry facilities. The park itself has TONS of open green space! Great quiet weekend getaway.
Camped 2 nights over the long weekend. The campground was nearly full but our site in the lower loop was quiet and tucked into the woods. Our site was concrete but most were not, so very lucky. Bathhouse was clean and had plenty of space, even with the packed sites. Trails were well maintained and we took a beautiful walk to the beach! Only wish was that the path to the bath house would have been better lit, but that’s part of being in nature so we just brought flashlights after sunset. Cable at site was an unexpected treat for winding down in the evening!
A perfect spot for our first adventure! Site was level and spotless. We chose one based on the maps/pics and it did not disappoint. Ours had a deck instead of the gravel picnic area and it was perfect! Fire pit, clean grill, solid picnic table all included. NBC and CBS for sports via the antenna. Bathrooms were pristine! Gorgeous views of the lake and late fall foliage. Hosts were great and offered help with anything we were unsure of. Definitely a winner!
