Lake Lanier Islands Campground, Buford, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

A few years ago, before the current management team took over this campground, I considered this campground to be my favorite in NE Georgia. I have a new travel trailer now and drove to Blue Ridge Campground (Lake Lanier Islands) with a friend to scope the campground out again with the anticipation of camping there this week. WELL! I was shocked at the condition of the campground! There were large pot holes in the roads, large enough that I had to steer around them. I saw campsites that were so overgrown with vegetation you would no longer be able to back your travel trailer into them. I found one site I initially considered staying at, however the grill was broken and unusable and it looked as though the site had a sewer connection, but the pipe was full of a "liquid". There was one, lone, older travel trailer parked in one of the sites and it looked like it was abandoned as well. I drove back to the guard house and asked the lady when the campground would be open. To my surprise, she said "Its open now!" I asked her if they were planning on making repairs and she said "Not as far as I know". Honestly, the place looks abandoned. And for $42 a night, there are other, much better maintained campgrounds in the area, at less money! We camped at Lake Lanier Islands Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Old Federal COE, Flowery Branch, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed four nights at this campground and feel like I have found my favorite place to camp! Beautifully maintained grounds and camping sites along with wonderful views of Lake Sidney Lanier. I found the neighbors were very nice, respectful and tidy as well. Just a wonderful place! We camped at Old Federal COE in a Travel Trailer.

French Broad River Campground, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

At $42.00 a night for full hook-ups, one would think this would be a well maintained, clean and properly staffed campground. Think again! The sites are so small and so close together and the road is so tight that I had to partially back the trailer into the site, disconnect my truck, reposition, reconnect and finish backing the trailer into the tiny spot. I was forced to park perpendicular to the trailer in order to get my one vehicle off the main road through the park. I found the site to be poorly maintained with a rotted picnic table, a fire pit made of landscape edge stones piled up and broken (with trash from previous campers left there), and seemingly dead tree limbs hanging over my new travel trailer. I stayed 2 of my 3 booked nights before leaving. My site was right on the river, which was nice, but directly across the river a train runs almost hourly, especially at night. It actually shook my travel trailer enough to wake me many times during the night. The campground apparently allows long term or permanent residents there as well. Beside my camper was a neighbor who had a much older camper that was badly in need of repair with a tarp on the roof. It looked terrible. I took a ride through the rest of the campground and noticed there were several seemingly long term guests with junk piled on and round their trailers. One camper at the end of the park had a jeep in front with at least two flat tires. On the 2nd day, it was explained that they would be bleaching the water system out and the water would not be safe to ingest. I asked if I could still shower and the owner said to "smell it first, then decide". I decided to leave early only to learn the sewer connection was clogged. So! No potable water, no working sewer connection, Wifi so slow it was unusable, trash and poorly maintained equipment and trailers all around. At $42 a night, save your money and go somewhere nice. We camped at French Broad River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

My tip would be to find another place to park your rig and camp. This was a waste of money for me.

Warriors Path State Park, Kingsport, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

I found the park to be conveniently located for my needs. It seemed safe and the staff were pleasant to deal with. The campsites are a little tough to back a larger Travel Trailer into, but the roads are wide enough to compensate. Would stay there again. We camped at Warriors Path State Park in a Travel Trailer.
