This park is very close to the highway (I85) exit. We came here during the spring break early April. The weather was warm enough to get into the water. The RV sites were all spacious unlike some of the newly constructed parks. The facility is a little old and the restroom need a better cleaning job. Overall, we enjoyed our... More

Late October, but warm weather made this trip perfect. Kayaked around Lake Hartwell and even too a dip in the 84 degree water. Campsite was about 1/2 full. Just a hint of noise from I-85 but not a distraction. Campsites were neat and bath rooms were clean. We'll definitely go back!

Not near the lake, near a noisy highway. Wifi works 5 min at best and then nothing. One of the ugliest rv parks I have been to. Most of the spaces there are rented to long term residents. Only bright spot was free firewood for the fire pit.

Park is very pretty, RV sites look pretty level with roomy sites. Great for boating. We would definitely consider camping here in our RV.

We just bought an Airstream and were looking for a place to spend our first night. This was a lovely spot. The campground is very well designed - lots of spaces, but you have a lot of privacy. Our space fronted on the lake, which was lovely. The staff was great - friendly and helpful.

We are the only ones here in a campground with 116 lovely sites. Nice and clean with lake views at many of the sites. Great place to explore.
