I camped here off season and was happy there. Some of the pull throughs are very short. The pool was very nice. They had a nice office store that also made food like pizza etc and deliver them to your site. They had a nice sized fenced in area for dogs however the grass was not cut and as high as the fencing. - S Dowdy

No sewage dump at site; poor WiFi and cable reception; small sites, not level; too many permanent residents. Not a KOA campground. - Cindy Densmore

We called ahead for a spot thinking this park was a KOA. We were never told on the phone that they were not a KOA anymore, so our KOA card was of no use. The campground was all locals living there with only one on the road RV owner like us.The WiFi did not work even after notifying the office. Their answer was too people on at that time (5:00 PM). Neighbors chopping firewood after dark and diesel pick ups running late into the night. The campground looks like an RV dump. Never again ! - geeman53

Sites long and mostly level. Very helpful owner/host. There are 2 RV parks side by side here. It's easy to pull into the wrong one. - travler27

This is an absolutely clean, neat, well-manicured, cared-for campground. Although I didn't see the maintenance taking place due to our absence during the day attending events, it had to be constantly on-going to keep it as nice as it was. Without a doubt I would have given the CG a ten rating in all categories, but we had one issue that I just can't overlook, and that was the electricity. I need to preface this by saying that the weather for the four days that we were at Harvest Moon were extremely hot, with afternoon temperatures in the mid-90's. And with little or no shade, there was no protection from the blazing sun. I use an EMS religiously and I always check the readout for errors prior to connecting our motor home to the portable device. I saw a lower than normal AC voltage (114) when I first connected, but after checking it an hour or so later, it had climbed to a reasonable number. The next morning the voltage was again normal, but when we returned to the CG late in the afternoon, the current was running around 110 volts which is very low. That night, around 11 PM, a Georgia Power truck was in the CG, parked next to our MH near an electrical panel, but I couldn't see what they were doing. The next afternoon when we returned to the CG, I saw our clocks were all blinking, which meant the power had been off. I checked the EMS and saw that it shut down the power to the MH due to low voltage (under 108 volts). So for 63 minutes that afternoon, we had no power in the MH, which meant no air conditioning. But having the EMS kept the low pedestal power from ruining any of our electrical equipment, like the A/C or circuit boards. I realize that even with the extreme heat, no shade, and several dozen large MH's all with the A/C running at maximum, the current shouldn't have dropped to a point where the EMS had to cut my power. If it was this hot in October, what happens in the heat of the summer when the CG is full and the electrical load is greater? - Love To Travel 2

Stayed here as an overnight stop, staff very friendly. Park is mostly permanent residents, our spot was ha hose and cable stretched to a parking spot in front of the office. There were about 3 or 4 of these spots near the office but no real "sites". This parks was OK for an overnight where you don't need facilities but I would not stay here any longer. We stayed here in a motorhome. - Papabee49

Passport park, rate was 20.00 for 1 night, cash only. Weird setup they only have 2 spots for over night and both are beside the bath house/laundry room. Water pressure was low, cable and wifi worked well. Some train noise thru the night. not worth the full rate for 1 night. - DBSnowbirds

This is a very difficult park to rate. It is only a parking spot behind the office building in what appears to be a driveway, but it's the site. There are two that I saw. First off, be VERY CAREFUL walking in because I fell on the sidewalk leading to the office. It was 3-4 inches uneven, and someone was speaking to me while walking and I did not see it and fell on my newly replaced knee and other knee...hard. I am still sore today. I told the office lady they needed to mark that, and she did go outside and put a couple of stakes there. We had 50 amp service, sewer and water and cable and free wifi, so we were comfortable other than hurting. There are quite a few trains going through late at night, so what we thought would be quiet turned out to be a sleepless night. Most of the sites are permanent people, but they were quiet. We probably wouldn't stop there again just because of my bad experience, but if you just need a place with all the basics, they do have it. Their laundry was right next to our rv and only $1 for washer and $1 for dryer and that room was clean. The people were nice. - Ginny H

Nice campground. It's a county run park but it rivals most state parks, and most of the facilities look pretty new (in 2015). All camping spaces are paved, with decks, nice fire rings, etc. Restrooms are pretty standard in the campground. Several really nice playgrounds for the kids.
Only thing to be aware of is the steepness of the roads and some campsites. This campground is HILLY so many of the sites, the only flat space is the paved pad and the wood deck.
Caretaker was very nice. Beach area looks nice and has canoes to rent, but we were here in April and it wasn't open for the season yet. - Buddy Ray

This was an overnight stop for us on the way to Florida. The park is located conveniently off I-75 and yet far enough so that traffic noise is not a problem. Although we arrived mid-afternoon, the office was not open and directions posted on the door said to choose any open site without an orange cone on it. We were fortunate to find one of the few pull thru sites left. The price was fixed regardless of site and no discounts offered. Access roads and site pads are all gravel, reasonably level and long enough for our rig. Park roads were easy to navigate and access site spaces. Water pressure was good, as was AC power. Dump ports were conveniently located although we didn't use. We received a number of OTA TV channels quite clearly. We didn't use the wifi and our hotspot received a decent signal. My wife used the woman's facilities and said they were clean and well kept. This was a quick overnight and we were on the road before daybreak. We would stay here again. - Born2Roam

This was only an overnight stay because they didn't have anything available for our big rig length in FHU. The site was unlevel side to side but fortunately the person guiding us in warned us to stay in the correct position. However, to get level, the water and electric was very far at the back of the site and a distance from our connections. Overall, nice campground with a new, front section that is more open. In the back, where we were, is shaded by mature trees. - lce3

VERY IMPORTANT CAMPGROUND STATUS: As of 3:30am on October 15, 2018. There is MAJOR construction on the property right next to this KOA, less than 50 feet from the property boundary, and less than 200 feet from our specific campsite. We arrived on the weekend and I observed the sprawling construction site while we were pulling in to the campground. We were booked here for a four night stay. I made a note to myself that I was going to see when and to what level of intrusion the construction would begin and if it was hopefully only going to during the weekday daylight hours. I was sorely mistaken. It's currently late Sunday night/very early Monday morning, as of my writing this review. Cement trucks and other large machinery are rumbling and making excessively loud noise throughout the middle of the night, since about midnight I believe. I was awakened shortly after midnight to the banging, rumbling, crashing noises of metal beams or pallets being offloaded, ringing bells of trucks backing up and all sorts of other various consistently, jarringly loud noises related to a massive construction site. There is a major complex/warehouse of some sort being built directly next to this campground, and they are only at the beginning phase of laying concrete for the foundation. Why they are working on this in the middle of the night mystifies me. Of course, the campground has no control over this, and there is nothing they can do. However, I want to let all future campers know that this is a factor before they arrive or book here and that I cannot sleep through this noise, even with silicone earplugs in my ears. I'm booked here for another two nights but I'm going to see about leaving early, today hopefully, and moving on to our next location because I have a feeling that the construction schedule will remain the same for evening work. - Jason R

Clean, quiet, safe, gorgeous campground on Carters Lake. Some sites are less spacious, so check map. However all are pretty good with at least some view of lake. We will definitely camp here again. - RBD-FL

The 4.2 mile entrance road to this campground reminds me of "The Devils Tail". Lots of twists, turns, ups and downs; but, the road is wide enough and in good condition so it shouldn't be a problem for even the largest rig if you're careful. Watch out for motorcycles on this road.
The CG is very nice. Carter Lake is a high mountain lake and the locals say it's a few degrees cooler in the summer. Like all COE parks, this one is well laid out for the terrain. However, the designer had some challenges on this one because of the narrow peninsulas. The lengths listed online are for the pad only; there is additional space in the site for a tow/towed vehicle. Because of the terrain many sites are oriented so the door faces the road and not the lake. Refer to the campground map on Recreation. gov to see these. Camp sites 18, 19, 21, 31, 32 and 33 (maybe a few more) are narrow with the "sitting area" behind the site instead of adjacent to the door side. These are still good sites, but don't allow much sitting area beside the camper. Most of the sites have a good view of the lake, although they are higher than the lake level in elevation. Some sites have decks or large door side sitting areas. There is a small swimming area with benches provided in a viewing area. Site 20 overlooks the swimming area. Good Verizon cell phone coverage. There is only one bath house for 40 sites, but it is clean and in good repair. Plenty of hot water in the showers with "real" controls (not a push button). The access loop for the dump station is a little short - fifth wheels have to "swing wide" for the proper approach. Also, the dump station has a little forward slope which doesn't allow complete draining of some of your tanks. Reports are the fishing is good with lake trout and bass. This is a nice, quiet campground. We will return. - Bama Camper

A lot of fishermen camp here at this small but very deep lake. It's our go to place when we don't want to burn a lot of gas and can have neighbors come out to visit.
We stay in a 35 ft motor home and I don't think I've seen any bigger rigs there. We have a couple of favorite sites. Some sites are narrow and your fire ring and table are behind your unit. Almost all sites are shady. The CG is on a ridge line so they had to get creative with the site placements.
The shower house was clean but could use some updating. - Lainee131

Great campground with level sites and concrete pads. We stayed in site 4. The campfire ring was right outside the door of our 40' motorhome so we didn't use it during our stay. The dump station was nearby but over two significant speed bumps so we opted to "carry our load. :-) Good Verizon service. Sites have views of lake through the trees/underbrush this time of year. Laundry area with one washer($0.75) and one dryer($1.00) worked well. Very hilly area. Be wary of steep curvy entrance and low hanging tree limbs on roads! VERY popular on weekends. Some sites have wooden patios. - Terry P

Wow, one of those campgrounds you hate to leave. The best COE campground we have found and the area and view were wonderful. Decent OTA tv and Verizon 4G. Back-in site with concrete pad and huge deck, the camphost said we would love the site and he was correct. The turns and slopes getting into the park are a little bit of a challenge, but it is worth it. We would definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity and hated to leave. - jtl2

Beautiful park with playgrounds for kids and a boat ramp and picnic area on the lake. Sites are quite large with concrete patios and crushed rock tent pads. Many sites have good views of lake, and there are some premium sites with wooden decks. Park is 9 miles from Ellijay, and it is only a few more miles to several apple orchards. - SunnyTravelers

Sites are very level paved concrete. Bath facilites are well maintained and spotless. Sites are very spacious and well separated. Lakefront sites are high about the lake, it order to access the lake you must walk down a steep grade. Views of the lake is difficult because of the beautiful trees. Campground is well managed and cared for. - Paythebill

The campground was very clean, many private sites, hosts very friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning to Doll Mountain.
This campground is on Carter's Lake but many of the sites are very shady and private but you can hardly see the lake. But, the trees are beautiful and the campground is quiet. Our site was too close to the entrance for my comfort and had much thru traffic. Next time we'll choose a site farther from the entrance. We had a very enjoyable stay and will return. - AnnieB

One of our favorite N. Georgia campgrounds. The loop we are in is more open and several sites are suitable for satellite reception. There is another RV loop that overlooks Lake Carter too but is heavily treed and satellite reception will not be possible. Lots of other small sites along the main road suitable for pop-ups and tents. - SunnyTravelers

A real find. This small campground is located at State Mutual Stadium, home of the Rome Braves minor league baseball club. Great location adjacent to the Oostanaula River and Downtown Heritage Trail system. Gravel pads with patios, water and 15/30/50 power hookups. Operated by the friendly Braves staff, who will even give you a golf cart ride to the stadium. Great way to combine a trip to the ballpark and a night of camping. Open year round, reservations required - contact Braves office to book. - AtlantaBrave

Stayed one night on our way through. Basically a gravel parking lot. As said previously it was weedy. There are 6 sites. 5 30 amp and one 50/30. One site had a huge hole/depression in it. 2 sites were taken by members storing their rvs. We told them about the hole at the lodge and they are going to look at it. Water and power are padlocked. Bartender has the keys. Can't beat the value. The entry/exit is a hard left in. Much easier to go up to the parking lot and turn around. Same when you leave. Everyone at the lodge was very friendly. It is a smoking lodge though. - Patricia57

We stayed here one night while traveling through the area. The power pedestals and water spigots are padlocked. You must obtain a key from the lodge bar. The RV parking area was very unkempt - it had 12" weeds throughout the camping area. The very first site on the right as you enter the RV parking area has 50 amp service, the other three have 30 amp. There was an empty motorhome being stored in one of the 30 amp sites when we were there. The lodge has a very nice pool, but we didn't take advantage of it. The campsites were very secluded and quiet, with the exception of a distant train horn every now and then, but we did not find it disturbing. The driveway apron entering/leaving the RV area can be a challenge - take it very slow. - craigtaz
