“Excellent place to stay.”

Stayed Oct 6-8. Rates for this site were $22 MTW and $32 TFSS. Senior Pass cut the rates in half.
Reservations were make online at recreation.gov and confirmed before arrival. We stopped at the entrance and were told we could proceed to the site. We received a map and directions to the site.
This campground is laid out so nearly every site is on the lake side of the campground roads. Most sites have a lake view. For mid Sep thru mid Oct the campground was nearly full on weekends. We used to camp on Lake Lanier 35 years or so ago and really liked it back then. This is a newer campground on the northern end of the lake and didn't seem to have as much boat traffic as the ones further south.
This is the only site that was available that met our size and power requirement when the reservation was made. We couldn't have asked for a nicer site. Nice level treed site with a good lake view. It has an asphalt driveway, level concrete pad and crushed granite camping area.
There are only 2 very minor dings for the site. You heard an occasional acorn hit the roof, (to be expected on a site with a lot of trees). Hurricane Nate went through on Sunday and dumped about 1.75 inches of rain over half a day and there was some minor puddling in the crushed granite camping area.
The MHRig blog post about this campground named only 6 sites that were big rig compatible. We called the campground to ask about that and they gave us another half dozen sites. By the time we booked none of the sites from either source were available. Site 26 is listed as 47' back in. At 41' we were fine with the site. If we had backed up until the back tires hit the concrete stopper, it would have been perfect. Longer rigs would probably have the door open outside the crushed granite camping area. We were outside, but we were not all the way back.
