Overall Rating

Popular state park about an hour east of Atlanta with lots of hiking and mountain biking trails, lake with boat rentals, and a small 18th century fort (open to the public on select days with historic reenactments and activities). Campground has very large, mostly level sites. A few pull throughs, but most are back in (campground host led us to the site and helped us back in). Some sites back up to the lake; all are very wooded and shady. GA state parks campground reservations are not site specific; you pick from the available sites when you arrive. The campground was completely full the weekend we were there, and by the time we got there at around 6, the host had two open campsites for us to pick from. That said, all the sites seemed fine; ours was very big and private, and we had no issues with it. There are two loops; we stayed in campground #1, but we walked over to campground #2 a few times, and the bathhouse there is MUCH newer and nicer than the one in our loop (which was not terrible, but definitely was showing its age). Campground #2 is also where the playground is--next time we'd try to stay there. No camp store at the campground (there's a very small "trading post" at the park entrance, but not walkable from campground); they sell firewood on site, but you'll need to leave the park for much else. Lots of shopping nearby (within 10 minutes), though.
