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

Next to I-75, so if placed in monthly rental section, traffic noise is terrible. Didn't sleep at all due to very busy interstate noise all night. Sites gravel. Not level. Did not use facilities so can't comment on those. No longer a Good Sam campground. Very convenient to restaurants and Chickamauga battlefield. Many apparently long term guests but that was not a problem for us. - otternebr

Okay for an overnight stay as it is convenient off the interstate. Campground has a lot of full time campers which makes the place look trashy. Had a light that shined in camper all night. Absolutely no hot water in showers and complained twice about it. - Mri7853

Let me start by saying we didn't spend the night here. We stopped for a quick overnight and as soon as we pulled into our spot the power went out. Nothing anybody could control, but we all knew it wasn't going to be fixed at 7:00 on a Saturday night. They quickly refunded us our money (why stay if we didn't have power) and we were on our way. Pool looked great and campground seemed nice. - RebaDee

Very nice park and everything others have said is accurate about the facilities. I was surprised that the premium sites have cable TV and that I could get a Verizon signal on my phone. Not terribly strong, but strong enough for intermittent Internet access, phone and text. I suggest you bring bear spray and/or noise makers as the bears are very active! - DD Jones

This was our first stay at this park, we camped in campground 1, our site was a handicap and flooded each time it rained although the water did drain pretty fast a wheelchair would still have problems getting around. We saw 1 of the camp host sitting at her picnic table while we were there, no camp host came around. If you asked a question it was answered. The rangers at the camp store were for the most part helpful and friendly. The trails that we hiked were maintained and easy to hike, the beach area was very clean and so was the playground. Our only complaint really is that the campsites in campground one could use some attention, campground 2 looked like they had more gravel and were better maintained. I am not sure that we would visit this park again, it just didn't appeal to us like the other GA state parks have. Fire wood is $6.00 a bundle that is the most we have paid at any GA state park so far. - thejones357

As other have said very steep and winding road up from Chatsworth. Campground was very well maintained. Sites level, gravel well packed. Campground hosts excellent!! While we were there, each day had severe thunderstorms, every time there was a warning or watch issued the campground hosts walked around the campground and told everyone. Park cable system took several hits from the storms, went down and stayed down for the rest of our stay. Over-the-air reception was excellent. Cell and internet service was non-existent. If you are camping without a toad, stock up, there are no stores near the park. Everything is "down the mountain", about 8 miles of winding steep roads. Grey water dumps well placed throughout the campgrounds, but with the amount of rain they have been having ground is saturated and dumps drain s-l-o-w-l-y. Both campgrounds near beach and boat rental areas. All in all a great state park. - Retired Medic

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

Camping is free if you use the Camping World Service Department during your stay. That's the reason for the 'Value' having an Excellent rating in my review. I would not have paid to stay here. Our site was narrow, trees in area and a narrow road made it difficult to enter site. Site was mostly dirt, some gravel and very little grass. Water spigot was not two inches above ground. If I didn't have a 90 degree elbow with me I would not have been able to attach my water hose to the spigot without removing dirt from around the spigot. Water pressure was good, but within an hour of arriving water was turned off for about an hour. Picnic table was very old, weathered, warped and splintered. Campground has cable TV, with SD channels only, channels are weak and 'snowy'. No WiFi in campground, WiFi is available in Camping World store. Parts of campground heavily treed. Our site was not that heavily treed, but our satellite antenna could not 'see' any of the Dish satellites 61, 72, 77, 110, 119 and 129. There are a few sites near the Service area the might get satellite reception . Campground is mostly seasonals, quite a few RVs were dirty and visually in need of repair. Interior roads are paved, but still lots of dust. Pool was closed during our stay with no reason given. Overall campground is clean. We were only here to use the Service Department otherwise we would not stayed here. The old saying 'You get what you pay for' applies here. - ETB

An old park but the price is right. It's used throughout the day by Camping World Sales and their service dept. It quiets down after they all go home at 4:30 p.m. We were here with out 42' 5th wheel so we had to unhook and park the truck off to the side. There is vehicle parking by the pool. The staff all seem very friendly. - JCZ

Gravel site with cement patio, lots of trees. Full hook-ups. Lots of static/snow on cable. Many sites are used by customers that are there to have service done on their RV and in some cases service was being done in the campground. - MarkandMarty

We stayed 2 nights on our way home from Florida in a 40 ft fifth wheel. The sites were a little narrow but still wide enough for slides. Plenty of length on the pull through site we had. Electric , water and sewer were all fine. Close to Ruby Falls and Lookout Mountain. We would stay again. - Lsperry

Nice, clean RV Park. Ladies in the Office were extremely courteous and friendly during the check-in process. The Park is large and the roads were easy to maneuver with my 40 foot 5th Wheel. There are some trees in the park but with our visit in February, there were no leaves on the trees so I can't speak to shade in the park. Other than the entrance road which is paved, the entire park is gravel with the roads well graded and level sites level. Our site was long allowing me to easily disconnect and have plenty of extra space to park my truck. Cable TV is available at the sites providing a lot of channels. WiFi is not available. The utilities at our site were in very good condition. Each site had a concrete patio and picnic table. The Restroom/Shower house was clean and in good condition. The only negative I saw was the park was flat with little drainage for rain water. When we arrived it had rained earlier in the week and there were puddles of standing water in some roads and sites. It rained the entire night before we left and my site had a lot of standing water which made disconnecting the utilities and connection to my 5th wheel troublesome due to having to avoid the standing water. - BillyE

Probably one of the nice KOA's we have stayed at. Park is clean and well maintained. Spots are gravel and level but bit narrow. Room enough on gravel for chairs. Power and water service is excellent. They tend to have the full timers in a separate section than short stay which is nice. Good location to visit area. Bit noisy since flight path close by for airport but not to bad. Staff was friendly. - Dov327

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

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
