“Beautiful State Park on Richard B. Russell Lake”

Reviewed Jul 02, 2018

Overall Rating

We have now stayed here three times for 2-3 night stays. We were there in late November and still enjoyed Fall colors. We returned over Christmas on our way to Florida. We stayed a third time over the 4th of July. No fireworks!! Yay! The nearby swimming beach is clean and total sand so easy and safe to swim and cool off. We enjoy all the hiking trails. Short hikes of only 3-4 miles. My husband, a golfer, especially enjoys Arrowhead Point Golf Course located on State Park land. With internet coupons he can often play for as little as $28. We love that nearly all of the campsites have lake views too. Quiet and respectful campers. Just be aware that during football season this is in the heart of Georgia with a lot of football fans camping out with their TVs. It is 30 miles south of I-85, so you do have to make it a destination. Down sides: No Verizon Cell Phone Coverage, no WiFi, no working TV systems.
