We stayed here in a 45' motor coach. This is a pretty campground, with lots of potential, but it is not there yet. 3/4 are full timers, some who looks rundown, and others are very neat. For Motor coaches, the entrance is about a 110 degrees turn in and exit, with a very hard slope, so enter slowly, and expect a lot of twisting. We may not come back, for that reason, and the price for what you get. It was close to the friends we were visiting in the area. Most other campgrounds in the area were w/e only. This one had w/e/s. The grass was cut, the park was neat but still needs some ground repair. The interior one lane road was assault. The RV sites were gravel/grass. They have several small camping/tent sights next to the river. We were on site 12. It was not bad backing into. We did have to drive down a gravel lane (where there are more tent sites) just far enough to get lined up for backing, and then back in to site 12. After walking around though, for large rigs site # 2 (which was just taken before we got there), 12, and 21 are good sites. Here on #12, even with trees, we were still able to get direct sat hookup. The bathrooms were clean, the showers stalls were small, they did some rerouting of the plumbing outside the walls, and that made it looked unkept, but both bathrooms needs renovations. Again, this is a pretty park, with a little more work, it could be really nice. Not much to offer so for 50 amp hook up, $40.00 I felt was a little high. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

Very small place. Only a few sites available due to permanent residents. NOT big rig friendly. Very tight right turn into CG. No staff on site. Sites not level. Low branches (real low). Owner, who we spoke with on phone was polite and friendly. - TRDAWG

Not sure why this park doesn't get better ratings. It's quiet, spacious, peaceful and pretty. Fairly level and HUs work well. $30 per night seems excessive, though. GREAT BBQ place on the corner. - TheRollingJones

Nice and quiet.no for anything longer than 25 feet. Only had a 15 amp Residential outlet, no sewer or dump station. The owner is super nice and its a good place for a pop up or B Van or small trailer. Sites not real level but the only option really close to Dawsonville other than Amicololaa Falls State Park. Also has cabins for rent. - jeffs

The 25% grade into the campground is tough going in and coming out. Campground facilities are not well maintained. Crumbling parts of loop road in campground. Dirty bathrooms. Pros: good tv antenna reception. Free laundry. Close to Falls trailheads and overlooks. AT&T cell service is good in campground. T-Mobile doesn't work. - Cale

Check in was a 45 minute wait and poorly organized. Check out didn't happen because the gate was left unattended for considerable time periods. Our camp site was not well engineered, erosion of the approach drive and retaining walls made back in a nightmare. Charcoal grill was rusted out and useless. 30 amp service had a loose and shorting out breaker (Power went out and breaker was sizzling. Switched to 50 amp with adapter and was okay) right next to a spewing water hookup. Couldn't leave water on for more than a few minutes or we were in a lake. Dump station hydrant also had major leaks. The rest of the park is beautiful, well maintained and the falls and mountain views are epic. IF you go pick your site carefully!! - Dana D

First time camping here and it was great. My wife and I camp state parks most often and this one is well maintained but a little dated. The convenience to the amazing park itself is well worth the price and simplicity of the campground. The waterfalls are only a 15-minute walk away and were beautiful. We also visited the lodge and enjoyed the breathtaking views from the back deck and terrace. The restaurant was very crowded but the food was good. A bit pricey but understandable for being the only game around.
NOTE: The 25% grade for a good 1/2 mile going up is a bear. Our F-250 handled it well, and we saw all sorts of motor coaches, trucks and SUV's at the top. It is doable, but if you have an older truck or a monster rig, be sure to take that into consideration.
I met 2-3 employees and a manager and they were all very courteous and helpful. The manager stated that the campground has plans for major roadwork coming soon and an upgrade to the bath house which is in desperate need of being updated, but I can say it was very clean the 2-nights we were there. Large, level sites with compacted gravel/dust surfaces. Everything on our site was in working order. We have already booked a site for this fall and the leaf season. $30 weeknights and $40 weekends. The campground was full the entire weekend. Book early. - WadeK

This is a pretty place and the lake is beautiful as well, but all the of the nice sites are taken by permanent residents. They will put you in "outback " loop which is described perfectly by its name. Very hilly and not any where close to semi level, cable didn't work,, even after they "fixed" it, the 15 amp auxiliary plug was burned out (our RV power connector did work though.) The wifi did not work unless you were close to the office. The owner claimed it was because of the mountains yet it was only about 150 yards direct line of site to our spot. I went to all the open sites in this loop and no usable signal at any. The owner did eventually give me a password to one the other residents private wifi and it worked fine. I counted only 8 sites out 50 + that were available to non permanent residents -- of course they were all in this back loop. The lake and public areas plus the bath house is lovely. If you do deside to stay here bring PLENTY of leveling blocks and don't plan on sitting outside if being on a 20 dog slope bothers you.
We would not stay here again if we had to stay this back part of the campground. - N4cty

I stayed in this nature sanctuary of a park for all of April 2016. It is now one of my favorite campgrounds after 2.5 years of being full timers. The owner of the park and his family are friendly, attentive and overall really good people. Space! You have lots of room between you and other campers and to explore. The lake, around the lake and all the other natural areas are great for any nature lovers. There is this magical little wooded place within the park that is named, Ferngully. You really feel like you've stepped into another time in this space full of ferns, wildflowers and abundant green growth all around. There's a nice path the owners have built in this section. This park is situated in gorgeous rolling hill countryside of North Georgia. You have apple orchards all around you. Since you are in a hilly, mountainous area, you'll definitely want to have levelers. You're only 15 minutes away from the quaint, progressive town of Ellijay that has everything you could need(Wal-Mart, a fabulous Ingles grocery store, health food stores, a historic downtown full of boutiques and there's two Starbucks(one inside of the Ingles). - Cappy Jack

Camped here in October with my RV club. We came here for the Apple Festival. The park was very nice and the people running it were very friendly. Will come back here again. - Phillip D

Cute, simple little park, nothing fancy. There are a lot of full time residents, but sites are well cared for and not trashy. Convenient to get into, people are super nice, helpful and the price is right. We have a 44 ft. MH and they were able to accommodate us easily. Not many campgrounds in this area, but would definitely come back to this one! - Kitt Katti

We didn't have reservations and had to stay in an overflow lot, but we did have30 amp and water from a hose, and we're happy to have a place to stay. The park is mostly full timers, the owner or manager said they are full almost every night year round. It is older, but not bad, and very friendly. There aren't many campgrounds in this part of north GA, and it was easy on and off the main highway. There is a through road between the park and the overflow lot and the traffic zooms by, but it quieted down after dark and the highway noise wasn't too bad. - Ginny H

Poor interior roads, could use some gravel. Site had potholes.
Garbage in the fire pit. Grass is overgrown.
Overnight only. - Iceman567

We stayed here over Father's Day Weekend and had a blast with the kids. I would recommend staying near the loop we were in if you plan on going to the beach or playground as it was a quick walk over there. If you want more privacy, I would say 130's to 140's. You might want to bring water shoes for the kids as there are sticks and rocks in the lake. Sites are well maintained...very quiet and peaceful at night. Next time I would try to stay at 108 or 110 as there is more grass there for the kids to run around. - Adam3

Great campground with numerous lakefront campsites! Pros - level sites, fishing, water activities, great scenery Cons - Not full hookup. - RandyP
Mar 2017 - $32.00
This was the opening weekend for the campground season. Park was in good shape. Area we were in had restrooms only, no bath house. Some site are smaller due to age of campground. Hosts are very friendly, and helpful. This is an old park built in 60's. First site we were reserved on could not get my camper on, even though it said it would accommodate. However hosts allowed us to move with no hassles. Good easy power hook up. Sites on the water are more expensive than inner sites. Weekend crowds book way ahead so you may or may not get a water site when lake is full. Over all good campground and location, as well as value. - RDM1980

We needed a place close to Atlanta for a seminar and Twin Lakes RV PArk was right down the road. The park is quiet and clean. Nice walking paths around the lakes with fountains. Plenty of dog clean up stations and pet friendly. This will be our stop whenever we are in the Atlanta area. - CampsiteFlags

I am not sure I get the appeal of this place. The entrance is down a narrow, residential road. We passed another RV leaving, and he pulled off the road to let us by. Check-in staff was pretty indifferent and not what I would call friendly. They do not accept credit cards. The permanent sites are kind of hidden up a steep hill. These sites are quite large and very shaded with decent spacing. The transient spots are in several different areas and RVs are scattered all over the place. Some sites have shade from trees, some partial, some none at all. The pull-thru sites are very small and narrow. The sites on the water are very close together. There is one site that is literally right next to the public sewer. We were in a large gravel lot with the RVs positioned corral style. All the sites were back in and very close together. Our site was between an old, long term fifth wheel and an even older park unit that had crates of stuff underneath it(even though according to the park rules this isn't allowed). Said neighbor frequently let her dogs bark inside while she sat outside arguing with her son. We were also parked right next to, if not on top of, the septic as there were signs indicating this. Directv worked in our spot but wouldn't in all sites due to trees. The internet worked great until the place filled up and then it was pretty useless. Verizon was 4g 3 bars so we were able to use our hot spot. On the plus side, this park is convenient to the enormous amount of shopping in the area. Restaurants are a dime a dozen. The lakes are pretty with a couple of trails. However, it is unlikely we would stay here again. - Free

Stayed overnight in 40-foot RV towing. Our site was back-in down by the lake. Access was roomy. The campground is set up in sections on a hill. The lawn sections were well manicured, and the walking paths along and behind the lake were very nice. We saw some folks catching (and releasing) small fish. The campground was clean and quiet. We would stop here again. - Txgranni

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

Exceptional park - from checkin to checkout and everything in between. The park hosts were top notch and the park was one of the best we've encountered in years. The park is perfectly laid out to maximize privacy. The entire park was very well maintained. Interior roads are paved and in good condition. Site drives are paved with large crushed gravel patios. We had no problem navigating with a 44' motorhome. We had a lakeside site. No sewer. Because of tree coverage we were unable to get satellite service but over the air provided an adequate number of stations. AT&T wireless was limited to 1 or 2 bars. Wonderfully remote but in close proximity to shopping restaurants and anything you could want. - Rob&Terri

This site is right on the lake. It was very easy to back into with our 38-foot 5th wheeler. Many of the sites would no accommodate a large rig, so chose carefully. The park is large and allows for nice walking. There is a boat launch, beach and several playgrounds. The lake is higher than it has been in a while which made the lake trail very muddy. There is no internet and TV reception is spotty. - winnie1

I would have rated it a 10 if there were sewers, very busy on weekends, but no problems with noise. Beautiful campground, attendants were helpful and they drive around to check on things. - lwabend

We stayed here one night out of necessity. The camp is very hard to find, especially after dark. We pulled in and there was no one about so we just selected a site. This appears to have been a nice camp ground at some point in the past but it has gone to seed. Water, sewer and electric worked but sites are uneven and over grown. Interior roads are unpaved, rutted and muddy after a rain. The camp is in desperate need of a major rework of its infrastructure. It struck us as a jewel in the "very rough." There are lots of permanent units on site and some that appear to be abandoned. We were charged $30 cash; not credit cards taken. This camp ground will do in a pinch but we cannot recommend it as a destination. - User3310

Maybe it's the wrong time of year. It was muddy and filthy. Dog poo all over the place and dirty diapers in the fire pit. No internet and my phone only worked part time. It was quiet. That is the only positive I can think of. We will not stay there again. - chiniakbay

This CG is a bit out of the way but we have family here and it was the closest CG to them. The road leading in is narrow. If you have a big rig, watch out for anyone speeding towards you. The interior roads of the CG are packed dirt and extremely bumpy. Hold on! Some advice, call ahead. We usually do, but at this time of the year we knew it wouldn't be full and didn't bother to call. As expected, there was plenty of space, but call because this property is gated. At the gate you are instructed to use the phone above the keypad to call. The phone DOESN'T WORK! The other option was to call the number listed there. A note ...Verizon does not have coverage here. Thankfully we had another cell phone, a cheap Walmart phone, and it worked. The woman at check in was very nice, the CG accepts PA, we paid $16.50. All the sites are grass. Hook ups were fine. No cable, the free wifi was poor. The restrooms/showers are huge and clean. - hunkahunka
