“Quiet and Relaxing”

Reviewed Jun 26, 2018

Overall Rating

This state park is in Summerville, Georgia. We really enjoyed it. You make reservations ahead of time so you know exactly where you will be camping. We reserved site #12.  It was just fine for a nice quiet and private stay. It was a pull-through near the newly renovated bath house.

The colors are extremely vivid in the fall with all the hardwoods. We enjoyed the 1.6 mile hike to the reflecting pool called the Marble Mine Trail.  It was so quiet and you could almost imagine the Native Americans around the pool doing whatever they needed to in their daily tasks hundreds of years ago.

By the way, James Floyd was from Chattooga County, GA and served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1953-1974. His nickname was given to him back in his high school days while playing football. He was very thin and his jersey was always flopping in the wind, so his coaches called him "Sloppy".

“Lovely, quiet Georgia state park”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2017

Overall Rating

Georgia state parks are always so well done, if a little bit on the expensive side. This one is no exception. Sites are a large and level - only a few had slight inclines. A mixture of back-in and pull-through. Water/electric only, some 50amp but mostly 30amp. No sewer, but a dump station and several places to dump sink water throughout the campground. Nightly rate is $33, but you have to pay a $5/night parking pass, unless you buy a GA State Park pass. It's really only worth buying the pass if you're going to camp in GA several times a year. Verizon signal was good. Lots of walking trails and a lake with fishing and canoe/kayak rentals.
