“Beautiful Lake Blue Ridge”

First of all, I want to warn you about the price. As of Sept 16, 2018, the CFAIA website shows it as $18. There is no designation at this time about tent vs. RV. In fact, the only other options are group campsites and a double campsite. We were surprised to find out upon arrival that our regular single site was $27. This is not clear online, so it was a lesson to me that I should always call ahead. We showed the camp host the web site, but he was not swayed.

We did get water and 30/50 electricity for that price. The campground was clean and quiet. We checked in on a Friday. The campground staff take their jobs very seriously, which I appreciate. The host followed us to our site to collect our fee, and he drove by about 35 times during our one-night stay. ;) When we went to check out the day area (which was very nice), another staff member pulled us over and questioned our motives (in a friendly manner).

Site 15 was not totally level, but I'm sure other sites were better as we saw a Class A and a large Fifth Wheel in the park. The roads are paved, but the sites are gravel. We had a fire ring and picnic table at our site. We could definitely see our neighbors, but there was a decent bit of space between sites. If you tent camp in the farthest loop, you will probably not see your neighbors at all.

There are two bathhouses that I saw. I didn't shower, so I can't tell you about that, but the large bathhouse was very nice. The dump station was clean with potable water and a dumpster for household trash.

There seems to be plenty of lake access, and the day area offers a swimming beach, paddleboard rentals, and picnic tables.

“Beautiful campground and lake”

Reviewed Aug 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Morganton Point Recreation Area is on the shore of beautiful Lake Blue Ridge in Morganton, GA (just outside of Blue Ridge, GA). The campground is small, but really pretty. This was originally a tent only campground, and the sites have been reworked to accommodate RVs. There may be one or two spots that a big rig can make it into, but most sites would not accommodate a large camper.

Our site was pretty level. The pad for the camper was bordered by large boulders. There was plenty of room to position a camper, but the BPQ was a little high given the consequences of getting a little too far in one direction or the other.

Morganton Point is water and electric only. We used the bath house for showers, and it was one of the nicer bath houses we've used. Clean and modern. Easy walk from most sites. Hosts were helpful and visible. Quiet park overall.

We loved the lakefront view, and the sites were well spaced - our site felt private but not isolated. Lots and lots of shade. Lake Blue Ridge is one of the prettiest lakes we've seen. We'll definitely be back!
