Summary:

This is an exceptionally beautiful RV park with two lakes serving as the focal point. Actually, it's more like two large ponds, but the scenery is a very welcome contrast to the busyness of the Atlanta metropolitan era. Each lake has a fountain in the center.

I stayed at the park Nov. 29 and 30, 2014, while visiting the Atlanta area on business. However, I would seriously consider this a home base if I ever found myself in the Atlanta area again. The daily rate I paid was $30 per night.

The park offers water and 30- and 50-amp electrical hookups, and most sites have full hookups, but the water-front sites do not. However, there is an onsite dump station conveniently located in the middle of the park that is free to overnight guests. Others pay $10 per dump.

I give this campground 4.5 stars out of 5. It is a little oasis not far from the Atlanta Metropolitan area.

 

 

Pros

  • There are 19 waterfront sites overlooking the lakes.
  • A picnic table is offered at each site.
  • Internet download speeds recorded at 2.07 mbs download and 0.76 mbs upload. However, I occasionally had issues getting web pages to open when connected to the park’s system.
  • Decent Verizon connectivity for both phone and data.
  • The park does allow guests to pull into the site with a motorhome, so long as the slideouts don’t interfere with another guests’ slides or awnings.
  • There is a nice isthmus between the lakes that make a great place to walk a dog.
  • The park does sell propane.
  • The road leading into the park is paved and smooth.
  • There are several two-person swings in various locations near the waterfront.
  • Rules allow two vehicles per campsite.
  • Catch and release fishing for paid tenants only. Your guests will not be allowed to fish in the lakes.
  • On-premise RV wash station; however, washing is prohibited on the campsites.
  • Check out time is noon.

Cons

  • There is no playground, dog park, or swimming pool. The only game offered is horseshoes.
  • No cable TV offered.
  • There is only one dumpster for the entire park, and that is at the entrance.
  • Rules prohibit public display of alcohol, but allow discrete consumption outdoors. No bottles allowed outdoors.
  • No boat or trailer parking.
  • No swimming allowed in the lakes.
  • No campfires allowed. However, covered fire places are allowed.
  • Strict policies regarding children with imposed curfews and must be watched by parents at all times — no babysitters allowed.
  • No onsite laundry, but there is a facility about 1.5 miles from the campground.
  • Guns are prohibited within the park.

THE UGLY

  • The campground does not accept credit cards — cash and checks only. Out of state checks are acceptable.
  • Be careful of the content jarring speed bumps scattered around the campground.
