This campground is for the use of people attending the school. It provides a convenient location just steps away from the classroom building. All the sites are back-in. Some require backing up a fair distance since the row is a dead-end. Many of the hook-ups are on the wrong side, requiring long cords or hoses. Sites are very shady and only a couple have satellite reception. No other TV reception is available. Road in is very narrow but has almost no traffic. Sites are relatively level. Wi-Fi is available in the classroom building and can be picked up at some of the sites. No laundry facilities are available. Nearest shopping is about 3 miles away. Closest major grocer is 10 miles. - glenthompson

Their wifi up onthe "hilltop" area was excellent. Most cell services had a 2 bar signal. Great place, they have a lake for swimming and a horse stable if you like to ride. Great family run business. It's good to have a apple or google map navigator as the roads getting to this wind around (beautiful drive) but having a NAV system will help you get to where you want to go without getting lost or wasting time. - Rick Rowland

From the time we pulled in to the campground we knew we were going to love this place! We are a very outdoorsy kind of family so this place was perfect for us! Very quiet and serene. There's a beautiful lake for swimming, hiking trails, horse back riding, playgrounds, various outdoor games, and an indoor pool table and reading area. The campsites are pretty much in the woods, which we love, very private. No outdoor street lights, which again, we loved. The staff was very friendly, the showers very clean and roomy. We will be back A LOT! We absolutely love this campground! Highly recommend it! - The camping crew

This is not my first visit to this campground. We have had mostly good experiences in the past. This time we recieved and email the night before telling us our site number had been changed. No reason was given. We we arrived they still would not give us a reason for the change. We were assigned a new spot #23. My original site was a pull through. The new site was a back in that required about 180 degree change in direction. I asked if I could have the pull through next to me #24. I was told no it was reserved. No one showed for this campsite until the day before we left. At that time (monday) the campground was 95% empty. I accepted the lack of explanation because all the campgrounds in the area were full. I love the scenery of the campground but we are committed to not returning in the future. I will miss the good parts of the campground but I vote with my pocket book. - walterwegozz

Small campground in the mountains off the beaten path. A lot of negatives when I had hoped for a lot of positives based on previous reviews. I missed the turn off the main road because you can't see the sign. The road to the CG is a very narrow country road where you pray that no one is coming in the opposite direction. This was the hardest site I have encountered in 3 years to disconnect and level due to erosion of the site. Disconnecting stabilizer bars and the hitch while the truck was leaning down the hill was impossible. The site was wide and level but not long enough due to ruts. I had to pull the trailer to a level spot when leaving to attach the bars. No OTH TV channels. Satellite reception blocked by trees. Tranquility expected by camping in the woods was broken by the fan running on high in a fifth wheel that was not occupied. Most sites are very close together. Staff was friendly. - jnateg

My husband and I spent November 2016 to March 2017 at Long Ridge for the first time. We can't say enough good things about the location and the owners James and Donna! They made us feel so at home, and if we needed anything, they were very accommodating and kind! It was like leaving family when we pulled out. The location is nestled in the mountains with beautiful hills around it, and the sites are level and gravel covered. We had some very heavy rains a few times but there was no mud or anything to deal with which was very nice. Just lots of nature and quietness to enjoy! The shops in Hiawassee were also very nice as well as neighboring towns of Blairsville, and Helen, which is a jewel in itself. If you come here, you will be enchanted with everything! Just can't say enough good about it! Will definitely return! - mandolin57

Awesome campground. Nestled in a bowl surrounded by mountains. You don't see the mountains till the leaves start to fall. Its quiet and our type of camping. A nice sized back in lot (we are 40 ft) . A fishing catch and release pond. The fall leaves are beautiful and we have enjoyed the view. We definitely would return. Rt 288 is a good 2 lane road. When you turn onto Burch Rd its one lane and also when you turn onto Jarrard Rd. Uneven road entering the campground. Just go slow. We didn't have a problem. - M.Register

We stayed in site #248 in our 39' FW. It was a paved site with shade and was long enough for our FW plus two large trucks. This a large CG with a lot of amenities such as pool, play grounds, pond (fishing and paddle boat rentals), putt-putt, etc. Lots of grassy areas, but no dedicated dog off lease area. Biggest negative is that there are many geese and ducks around the ponds which is littered with lots of poop. Also, there is no trash pickup so you have to carry your trash to the only dumpsters in one location which can be a far distance. And the utility hook ups are poorly positioned such that yours are just feet away from your neighbors picnic table and sitting area. There was plenty of room to move them closer to the site where they belonged. There were a lot of pull through sites in the open with no trees. There are many permanent residents but the CG is large enough to offer sites to suit your needs. Staff was friendly and helpful. CG store has some items, but the town of Hiawassee is about 6 miles away where you can find pretty much what ever you need. - RoadEyePie

We had a back in spot that backed right up to a beautiful swiftly flowing creek. What a great ambiance! The roads were nicely paved, and our whole parking area and picnic table area were nicely gravel. That was helpful since we had rain basically every day. Instead of turning the area into a mud pit, the rain absorbed. A nice pond is in the middle of the park, with ducks and geese. That also is nice, except when they walk around the grassy areas and leave their "calling cards". You have to be very careful where you walk! This park is a ways out in the country, and very quiet. Quite large park, so lots of walking, which we like. Excellent cable and wifi, and our Verizon cell service was fine. Also, their laundry was clean and reasonably priced. All in all, a great value, and we hope to be back. Our fifth wheel is 42 feet long, and we had plenty of space! Fishing in the pond no license required. - Florida Honey

We stayed on Labor Day weekend and the campground was full capacity. The sites along the drive way that runs parallel to the stream are jammed together. This weekend it was a treachreous drive from all the vehicle traffic, tow vehicles spilling into the street and foot traffic. Holiday weekends tends to bring out campers with differing attitudes about keeping barking dogs quiet. Outside of fishing in the pond, putt putt golf and paddle boats, there isn't much to do. We have camped here on a non holiday weekend and the park was more peaceful. The bath house on the hill near the cabins was clean but the fixtures and stall doors could use some updating. The bathhouse door has a coded lock that helps with keeping the bathhouse clean. From our campsite we could see the Brasstown Bald Observation Tower. Some areas of the park there is a mixture of existing permanent campers on sites and open rental sites. Several of the permanent campers are quite ugly and very dated taking away from the overall look and feel of the campground. An evening stroll you will see a nice new camper and then a old moldy camper with a tin shed built over it. Be very aware of the rules and regulations. This is a private campground and they have very strict rules on cancellations, especially on holiday weekends. Overall it was not a bad experience. We will return but not on a Holiday weekend. - shaw988

This park clicked off a lot of our boxes - lots of shade, plenty of space (and that's saying something for a 42 foot long fifth wheel and dually truck), excellent cable, good wifi and cell service was good. We bring our own kayaks, and were able to launch right there - they have a great boat launch and parking area that apparently anyone in the community can use. Great location for things to do in the area. Lots of walking, which is also important to us. Streets were paved and we parked on pavement, with lots of grass around. It was a very pretty park. We didn't use the bathhouses. It was a great value for the cost, we thought! - Florida Honey

We have been RVing in many states, but this campground is one of our top 3 favorites. The people are extremely nice that run the campground and it is beautiful. Many sites have a view of Lake Chatuge with beautiful mountains surrounding it . We are from Florida but each year we manage to stay there. Most of the sites are large and easy to get into . Cable TV and great WiFi and very convenient to great sightseeing. - Carmin Mazza

Very scary backing in but it was my first time. Very narrow road. The cable was a male connection and we didn't have a connector so no tv and trees blocked satellite. Water was on wrong side so we chose not to use and would have needed a second hose which we did have. It was last minute reservations so we were happy to get it and I think they are the only campsites close to fairgrounds. - Jennifer-Alex

This was our first visit here. We were met by the owners who checked us in and escorted us to our site. The back-in site (there's no pull-thrus) was a little tight but owner directed me as I backed in our 37' fifth wheel. We have a nice shady and quiet site but I think some sites closer to the road may experience some traffic noise.
Site has 50 amp electric, water, sewer, and about 100 cable channels. The site wasn't long enough to accommodate our truck but owner said we could use the vacant site next to us. The park has a good number of park models (mostly occupied by Floridians escaping summer heat) as well as a number of spots for folks just spending a few nights.
I recommend this park and will likely visit again when in the area. The park accepts Passport America for two nights only at half of the $32 rate. - halfdimes

Beautiful mountain area, great landscapes. If you're looking for a lighter winter than NY, this is a nice spot. Spent a couple of seasons there and would recommend you stop when you get the chance. The owners are very nice. - David Coyle

A very friendly, safe RV park with everything you need to feel at home. The park is a good mix of seasonal and weekender sites, all of which are spacious and treed. The hookups are well located and include cable and free WiFi. Our hosts were super helpful, giving us lots of info on the area. We will be back to this very nice RV park. - Ab and Cindy

Beautiful park. Very helpful staff. Nice sites and lots of things to do. Loved this place! Helen is 15 minutes away. Lots of hiking nearby. Very kid-friendly with playground, trampolines (ground level). Great place for large groups or special events. - LadonnaO

My husband and I recently stayed at this beautiful campground and from the moment we pulled in it made me smile. This place is definitely a hidden gem. The peace and serenity this campground has to offer is just wonderful. ALMOST all campsites are on the creek and that in its self is hard to find. We loved how close it was to Helen, Ga. They have 2 waterfalls on the property, that we did not get to see this time, but we have already booked our next visit and looking forward to seeing the falls. - GandR5569

This retreat was a REAL TREAT! Lovely day hikes around grandiose waterfalls, with quaint rustic cabins all situated around a huge lodge. The water from the faucets is fed by high mountain springs.... Delicious! This place is a REAL FIND... we WILL be back! - JamesBH

Awesome experience. Family owned and operated and the owners are amazingly friendly and accommodating. Clean park and facilities. Well shaded. Tubing experience was great. Wish we could pick up this place and take it with us on our travels! - CheryleB

WOW... And that's not a good wow.
Hillbilly, Backwoods, Redneck. This about sums it up, but I'll try to paint a little more precise picture.
The idea of a family run small campground along a river with a big grassy field sounded appealing. Upon arrival, I couldn't find the place to check in. I looped around the muddy trail, I mean road, twice and asked 2 different people. Well, it was tucked way in the woods and it's an 80 year old dump of a house. I was already having second thoughts but gave her the additional $60 and went to our campsite.
This place had "campsites" all over the place, like they are just tossed around. We got to the site and it was shaded and halfway decent, until I went to hook up. I had already set up my popup and then I realized my power cord wouldn't reach. Wouldn't you know they put the water and the electric on opposite sides of the campsite! My extension cord blew the outlet and the owner had to come install a new one. After we got all settled and I physically moved my popup 3 feet by hand to reach the outlet, it wasn't horrible, just very rustic. Bathrooms were a cinder block building with see thru plastic ceiling that looked 3rd world. It was grungy and nasty, worst restroom I've been in in years anywhere.
PROS- River, field to play in
CONS- overpriced, poorly run, horrible site layout, nasty bathrooms, needs serious updating
A side note on the "cabins". I don't even know where to start. Our family rented two of them. One was a one room building with a bed and a sink. The other one was, well, unique. It was literally a 40 year old travel trailer camper that had been built around into a cabin. It had 2 beds inside the camper, a table a couch and a small bathroom. No such thing as building code here. Way overpriced and just plain weird.
My advice, stay far away from this place and think about the state park just up the road. - Bkell1978

According to the owners, the campground has been family owned and operated for about 50 years. They are very nice, extremely dedicated, and very helpful. The campground is very simple and rustic. It is a small campground but quaint and a little old-fashioned. The pros are: It is very family oriented with lots of things to do for children such as tubing, fishing and playing games such as volleyball, badminton, and flag football on a big grassy area in the center of the campground. It is great for tent camping, popup campers, travel trailers up to 30 feet and small motorhomes. The campsites are shady and most are by the river. The cons are: Roads are not very well maintained as they are very bumpy and rough. Some of the tree limbs need to be cut for better access to campsites. Also, some areas are very overgrown with brush that needs attention. Bathrooms are very outdated and shower curtains need a mildew cleaning. Otherwise, the bathrooms were clean. The pull thru sites are not really great as it is a very small and crowded area. There are no sewer hookups for rvs but there is a dump station. We stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed the cool nights by the river with a campfire for one night. Overall, we had a pleasant experience with the owners, campsite, and surrounding area. We would stay there again in the future. If you are used to a more high class campground, this would not be for you. However, if you like clean fresh air, rivers, sandy and graveled sites, shady sites, and a getting back to nature type experience...then this is your place to camp. - pink51

There a quite a few parks in the general area, and this one is the best one, hands down. Very well kept, very quiet, even on busy weekends, and friendly helpful staff. Our rate is based on monthly rates plus electric. - rburckhart

Park is okay, it’s really just a big cow pasture with RV spots packed in like a parking lot. We were immediately disappointed but once we got settled in and met some our very nice neighbors we thought it wasn’t so bad. Unfortunately however the park owner pulled up to the end of our camp site and started screaming at our nephew whom we had invited to visit for dinner. She was threatening to call the police on him and kicked him out of the park. We were so confused about the whole situation but very upset. It was so uncalled for our camping neighbors apologized on her behalf. We will NEVER go back to this campsite again. One angry psychotic psychopath ruined the already sort of crappy experience. Avoid this place if possible, too many other beautiful options near by to suffer her treatment . - JessicaAdell
