Beautiful park, no Verizon signal except at top of mountain or at overlook. Cable worked on #35 but not on 13 on the other side of campground. Crowded on weekends and holidays! Good grocery shopping in Chatsworth. Only 1 set washer /dryer and cheap .75 but stayed busy. - TomLisa

The roads into the campground are VERY narrow and tight. Unless you have a short camper, it is a task getting into the sites. The bath houses... need a little cleaning.
The sites are very close together and ours was facing the main road in the park. - Ginny76

Stayed three nights in early April mid-week. We stayed in the Creek loop (e.g. Loop #1), which showed evidence of extensive site work over the winter. many trees were cleared and some grading work had been completed. It was relatively easy to drive through in my large Travel trailer and this loop seemed a bit quieter. The other loop (#2) seemed to be tighter, both in the proximity of the campsites and the roads, but was closer to the lake. Newer facilities, at least in our loop, although the general park facilities were showing their age. Excellent hiking and mountain biking loops available, of a variety of lengths and difficulties, directly from campground. Cell phone service (we have a VZW Jetpack) was good on the side of the creek loop we were in (site #9 but nonexistent in other areas. If you plan on working remotely while you are here, site #9 worked for me. Drive up from Chatsworth to the park was steep, but not overwhelmingly so. There are a couple of nice viewpoints. Reconstructed tower in the park is worth the hike, as is the mysterious wall, and the viewpoint at the top of Fort Mountain surprised me in how beautiful it was! - Milesdowntheroad

Stayed for two one night stays in March (Going to and from FMCA event). I echo the previous review about very friendly folks. Had a decent meal on Sat night. Made a $10 donation. Hard to beat the price considering Electric & Water is available and the facilities at the Lodge.
Do not follow your GPS. Memorial Drive is closed to through traffic due to Hospital expansion. Get to the intersection of N Thornton Ave and Memorial drive then turn on Memorial to Elkwood drive. RV Parking is sharp Left before top of hill. - Tireman9

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

We stayed @ 001. Very nice! All hookups, clean and a deck overlooking a quiet cove of the lake. The campsites are close together. That was the only part I didn’t like. The dump station is at the bottom end of the campground so we had to pull all the way out of the camping area, turn around and go back in to the dump station. That was the only “hitch” we had. - Ginny76

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

Campsites are well kept and quiet. Make sure your RV will fit into the campsite before hand. I had reserved #22 originally but our 29 footer was too long for that one so I changed our reservations to #39 which absolutely great! Park attendants are nice and knowledgeable. - Ginny76

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

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

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 place is far from a resort. The main roads are paved, very narrow, very steep and very sharp turns. The roads along the camp sites are gravel. The sites are narrowly carved out of the mountain side, but fairly level. Although we had reservations and they knew we were on our way, there was a lock on the electric and the water. We received 2 answers as to why they were locked, one was that other campers were causing problems, but when the maintainence man arrived, he said they keep it locked to avoid theft. Be prepared to wait an hour or more to get the locks removed. The country side was beautiful and we saw a lot of deer, but the overall campground was not worth the money and will not be back. - esta34950

We discovered this Campground at the Tampa RV show and were excited to find it. It, apparently, is a semi-private CG located within a 5500 acre gated development. The sites are beautiful and very secluded. However, getting a reservation was a two day event, three weeks prior to our visit. Once we finally arrived at the gate, they had our anme, but the gate guard couodn't give us correct directions to the camping area. Pulling a 36' Fifth Wheel makes it quite difficult to make U-turns on narrow mountain roads. Once we finally (!) arrived at our camp site, the water and power hookups were still under lock and key, so we waited an hour before the 'ranger' came to unlock, only to find 30 amp service, and we need 50. Although we were told they had 'full hook-up', we had no TV, not even with our antenna. Wifi is very iffy on the mountains and it too, was not available. However, the area is just beautiful. The sites could use a little care, but they were adequate. We enjoyed our stay, but wish we would have received the proper information prior to our visit. By the way, the roads leading to the campsite, although paved, are very narrow and curvy, and can look quite scary at times, especially to my wife who's my navigator. It was hard for her to navigate with her eyes closed. LOL. I would not return. - Gus the Fireant

We have stayed at this location several out of necessity. Have relatives in Calhoun and stay at this location when we travel to visit. This park has a petting zoo but they failed to keep animals and birds in one area. They go all over the park and no one cleans up after them. Also they give you a list of approx. 30 TV stations and you can only get the shopping channels and the kids channels. Called and complained but no one checked the problem. This is really a bad location to have to stay and it is the only camping place in this area. - Maggie43

Won't go back there unless necessary. Trashy and lots of junk everywhere. Only stayed one night. I think it was site 52 or 53. - PJ Norris

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
