We were on a last-minute weekend trip, and the price of this campground was attractive to us. We have stayed in other National Forest campgrounds and been impressed. We don't mind dry camping.
This campground has only eight sites, and they do not take reservations. Our rig is 22', and I would not recommend anything much larger here. It is all gravel - not paved.
The waterfront sites are $12 and others are $10. Nothing at the pay station actually explains which sites are which, so hopefully it's obvious. The main attraction at Deep Hole is the Toccoa River access. There is a nice updated launch site (photo included) for paddlers and tubers. Day parking is $3. Trout fishing is another draw to this location. It was a beautiful area with lots of hemlock trees, birds, and squirrels. I really wanted to love it.
There are no hook-ups (this is clear on the USFS web page). There is a vault bathroom. I didn't enter it, but I would assume there is no running water. We did not see any water spigots in the campground. There is no dump station. There are several large bear-proof trash cans. Most sites had fire rings with grill tops and picnic tables, but ours (site 6) did not.
There is no campground host on site. Another camper told us that the camp host from Cooper Creek is in charge of Deep Hole. While I understand that having no host is very attractive to certain people, it was a little unsettling for us. That is the reason we would not return. The tags on the campsites were outdated, and we saw several cars of folks leave due to the confusion over whether a site was actually vacant. There was trash in the sites (especially in fire rings), which gave everyone a scare at 1 AM as a propane bottle exploded in our neighbors' fire. Having no host also means that quiet hours are a joke.
Please understand that we were only there for one night. Perhaps there is a more attentive host at other times.
We had absolutely no cell service on AT&T.
