Typical of COE campgrounds. Beautiful sites with almost everysite have sometype of lake view. Our site (60) was a back-in and level. 50 Amp service was stable and water pressure was 50 psi. Lots of space between sites and grass throughout campground was freshly mowed. Although the road here are easy to navigate with a large RV. Each leg of the campground is a dead end. The dead ends are not large enough for a large RV to turn around without making a couple of Y turns. The only negative was the bath house for west side of this campground was closed during our stay. The hand written posted sign read 'out of order'. Both Mens and Womens restroom were locked as well as the room with the washer and dryer. In the one open Bath House the Mens room is clean, but in need of repair and updating. There is a problem with recreaton.gov website for this campground. The satellite photo that has sites 59, 60, and 61 has those sites listed incorrectly. Site 59 is not maked, site 60 is marked 59, site 61 is marked 60 and site 61 is actually the Bath House that was closed during our stay. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.

This is the second COE we have stayed at on Lake Lanier. I must say, while it was nice, the other CG was better. Be aware the roads leading up to the check-in are narrow and can get busy. We almost got hit by someone barely stopping before exiting a side road. It is a little drive to get back to the main roads. Also, it was a little tight to make the turn around at the end of our street, but do-able. With that said, we had a nice site with was on the water edge and a great view of the lake and mountains. I cold front came in that afternoon (yes in July) and we slept with our windows open. There is not much for the kids to do here other than ride bikes or swim in the roped off area, but lots to do in the Gainesville area. We ate at Pig Tales one evening and the food was good. We would stay here again. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.

We had a nice pull through site with W/E only (as all the sites are) with a beautiful view of the lake. The electric was good and the water quality was good. Each bathhouse had one washer and one dryer. Was told this was the nicest of the COE campgrounds on Lake Lanier, even though our site flooded when it rained. Internet service was good and we got a lot of TV Antenna stations. I found a tent site area where I was able to let the dogs loose. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Travel Trailer.

One of the best COE parks we have stayed in and we have seen many. Lots of large, awesome water front sites that easily handle our 43' motorhome. We did not use the showers but did use the restrooms and they were clean. No way to dry your hands however. This site did not allow for satellite tv because of trees. Many here would work great for satellite. Full hook ups are all that's missing here. Also be aware that upon entering, pull to the side before entering the gatehouse. When I pulled right up to the window, the old gal checking us in apparently thought I was an a##hole and chewed me out. I missed the sign. That's OK, an old biddy won't ruin our time. Our site faced the west for beautiful sunsets and we enjoyed every minute we were here. We'll be back! No alcohol policy here but there is a nice liquor store close by. Be sure to ask the old biddy for directions. lol. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.

Excellent campground. Well maintained and clean. Park staff is friendly and efficient. Sites are level and require no blocking.

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.

$28 a night Monday-Wednesday. $32 for Thursday-Sunday. We paid 1/2 price with our America the Beautiful ( senior ) pass. Located about 10 miles off I985 and about 30 miles north of Atlanta. Nice, clean, COE park. Roads are paved and easily accessible to any size rig. Sites are laid out in along a number of 'spurs', some are open and some are not. Some are pull thrus, some a back in. Most have a view of the lake and may or may not have easy access to it! Each restroom building contains one washer & dryer - .75 each to use, a nice surprise! The park is dry, and you have to sign on check in that you understand that rule. The reason for my 8 rating is that they lock a gate here at 10:30pm and open it at 7:00am. If you want to return later than that you have to park outside and walk in - this is 'technically' not allowed but had 'never' been a problem. This put a bit of a hitch in a few of our plans! Besides that, it's a wonderful place to stay! We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We had been here before and had jotted down the sites that were open as Satellite TV was important to us. 69, 60, 45, 44, 43,42,41 all met our needs. Next time I would try for #60, it's open and given it's orientation the sun would never beat in the front window!

Delightful campground on Lake Lanier. Our site (#5) was in the trees so we didn't have as great a lake view as we would have liked, but it worked out just fine. Internal roads are tight for big rigs, but manageable. Roads and parking pads are paved, and there are concrete patios with picnic tables and a fire ring. Sites are placed with plenty of space and trees between them, so you're not parked right on top of your neighbor. Water and electric (30 & 50 amp) available, but no sewer hook-up, although there is a dump station. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here many times over the years. The park itself is still lovely. The person at the desk was not very pleasant. We arrived on a busy Saturday. I don't know if she was overwhelmed but she was quite rude to everyone that we observed her interacting with. We will still return, of course but hope she is in a better mood.

Rate was with federal senior's America the Beautiful discount. We reserved an open site so the rooftop dish worked fine, Verizon cell phone and internet hotspot worked fine also. When we arrived one leg of the 50a outlet was bad, the host had an electrician respond within 2 hours to replace the pedestal breaker which resolved the problem, in the mean time we used the 30a outlet. Our site had a very good view of Lake Lanier, site was back-in blacktop with large packed, very fine, sand patio with fire ring and picnic table. All roads are blacktop in excellent shape. Dump station access with 37' fifth wheel tight but OK. The water often was a rusty brown color out of the spigot when turned on but cleared up in few seconds, I think. The park is well kept, staff friendly and a scenic location. There was another site parallel but forward of ours and the RV there had their slide extended slightly over our drive, we had to be careful parking the truck but it didn't block our lake view. I would have given higher rating if water was always clear, they had sewer hook ups and the parallel site wasn't so close to our sites drive. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of my all-time favorite places to sit and enjoy the view--even had a friendly bluebird sit on my windshield wipers and look in last time. As with most Corps of Engineering campgrounds, seniors get a 50% discount on camping fees. I've stayed at another of the Lake Lanier COE campgrounds and like this one better because almost every site is right on the lake, with some more wooded and some more open. I chose a site at the base of a peninsula where I had views of the lake on both sides, which was a bonus. As with all COE parks I have been to, roads and campsites are paved and in very good condition. Site was very large and fairly level with water and electric service. Laundromat was nearby and clean. Verizon service was adequate. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.

We stayed in Site 58 for 3 nights while visiting friends in the area. The park has beautiful views of the lake and is maintained well. We especially liked the guidelines of no alcohol which kept things peaceful so we could enjoy the nature. We definitely will return. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.

We camped here at site 62. Very shaded, with a concrete pad and gravel picnic area and fire ring. Our site was lake-front, but we couldn't access the lake from our site due to a steep ledge. Some other campers on our loop (sites 62-75) had their boats tied up to their sites. There is a nice swimming area and beach very close to our loop and the bath house was about 100 yards away. The bath house was clean, and is your typical state park type of facility. We would camp here again. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Travel Trailer.

This Corps Of Engineer (COE) park is one of the best on Lake Lanier. It is a favorable campground for the large RVs and motor homes because of the availability of 50 amp electric hookups. Also, because the layouts are spacious and nicely surrounded by the lake. Majority of the lops and sites have a very generous view of the lake. Even though it has a designated playground and swim area, there are several camp sites that have easy access to other swim areas. They even provided additional parking space at strategic parks of the campground for campers who arrive with more that one automobile. It is no wonder the campground was full the weekend of May 9th when we camped here, considering that the schools were still in session and the meteorologists had rain on their forecasts much of that weekend. TV and mobile phone reception are at their best here. The camp hosts are very nice folks. They graciously helped me with to contact a mobile RV repair guy when I intimated them that my A/C unit was broken. We will surely return to this campground. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.
