“Absolutely the best! My fav so far”

Overall Rating

This is, I think, my favorite site in 9 months and 7,000 miles of full-time RVing. If we didn't have plans already set, I would have stayed for the maximum allowable time.

The park is right on Lake Lanier. The loop we were on was on a spit out into the lake, so nearly all the sites had waterfront access. There was also a little semi-private beach that was - because of the parking - unaccessbile to people not staying on the loop. Our site (52) was the "second-best site on the lake" according to several people we talked to. (The best is site 55, right at the end of the spit.) Nearly all the sites were shady, large and fairly private.

One noticible aspect was that the campers were friendlier than most Army Corp sites we've been to. Chatty. Turns out that a lot of the locals stay here, putting an RV or trailer on a site and then coming and going from home depending on the weather and what they are doing. It's like a second summer home, I think.

The lake itself is awesome. The water was actually pretty warm, and the little secluded beach was a very pleasant way to enjoy. There are lots of boaters, but they were some distance away.

The only downside we found was what appears to be a strange weather pattern, that only occurs out on this particular spit. There was a huge downpour with thunder and lightening just as we were checking in. Not much wind at the front check-in, but it turns out that there were several micro-bursts out on the spit, one of which tore a campers awning off and blew it up on his room. Another camper (a local) said that he had a similar thing happen last in (2 months before) which ripped his CLOSED awning off the side of his new Class C.
