Took advantage of the 1/2 price camping in August offered by the Georgia State Park System since we had already camped in June & July. What a beautiful campground. Lots of trees and 2 streams running through the sites on both sides. Our site was level with plenty of room on gravel to spread out our floor mat.
Beautiful hiking to waterfall and around the lake. There is a beach for swimming and paddle boats for rent. We also enjoyed a day trip visiting wineries in the area and having breakfast in Blairsville. If coming north on 129, there is a sharp hairpin turn into the main entrance of the park.
We stayed here 1 night driving through, but really enjoyed our time. We were in site 50 in the trees. It appeared most of the other sites were out in the open and close together. Our site didn't have a water hook-up. But we filled our fresh water tank at the shower house. We hiked to the falls and tunnel. Next time we'll bring a flashlight and go all the way through the tunnel.
Close to Madison, IN. We ate dinner at Shipley's Tavern and had really great burgers. This was a fun stop we want to come back to.
The park at Swains Lake is really nice. There is lake access to fish, playgrounds for the kids, and a nice pavilion. The campground sites are pretty close together. It's a nice place to camp during the week, but it did get really crowded on summer weekends. I will say the shower house is GREAT! Individual showers with locking doors for complete privacy.
The location is great to day trip around the area. We enjoyed a day in Kalamazoo. Jackson isn't far with major grocery stores and shopping.
We stopped here passing through for 1 night. My impression was that the camping area was a basic field with not much privacy between sites. It's good we had a 50' hose because the water hook-up was with other faucets between a few sites. Not with the electrical hook-up as we were used to seeing.
I will admit my review is tainted because we were here in July and it was HOT! The saving grace was the big tree in our campsite (116) and the ability to float in the water. Our site was in a cove with limited views of the lake. Much of the camping is pretty open with the ability to see your neighbors.
This is a wonderful, scenic campground on beautiful Lake Allatoona. The sites are color coded depending on size and there is even a yurt to rent. We went swimming and hiking. Close to Cartersville to enjoy great restaurants and shopping.
This was a fun campground enjoyed with others for the weekend. They have a lake with john boat rentals along with mini golf. There are signs posted to watch for gators. Omaha Brewery is only 5 miles away.
This was our 1st time out with our new camper. We choose it because it was close to the dealer. I was inexperienced in selecting camp sites and we were in the middle of everything. Site 24 isn't very private. But the hiking was great and scenery was beautiful. They don't call it Fort Mountain for nothing - there was quite a drive uphill to get here.
