This park was under construction area 5 and 6. We had reservations for site 209 premium site with 59 amp. The rods leading to the site were extremely tight with significant drop offs on each side of the road. We were unable to access our site due to the narrow roads and a 2 1/2 foot drop off. They did not have another site so we were put in the pioneer section, 30 amp, 20lbs water pressure gravel/dirt road. We were camping in a 35 ft 5th wheel and a F450 truck. When this campground is completed it should be much easier to access sites with better power and water. Easy access to Callaway Gardens, nice trails, and a small lake.

We stayed two nights to see Calloway Gardens Christmas Lights. The park staff were very nice and helpful. Our site in area 5 wasn’t level but not uncomfortable. However the circular road for our area was very narrow and would have been a nightmare had we arrived after dark in our 37 foot MH. Overall a very nice, quiet state park.

Park is on a ridge, many trails to hike, fishing lake in campground. Gravel sites, mostly level, some quite tight, short, check your length. Bathhouses, laundries spaced well in loops. Playground. Plenty of shade.

Charming park with historical significance.
Part of the string of parks across the top of Georgia (and into Alabama) created by Franklin Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps, which he established to help the struggling people of the region.
FDR became a witness to that economic struggle on visits to nearby Warm Springs. His Little White House there is a recommended visit.
The park headquarters is an outstanding example of CCC construction.
Excellent hiking along the Pine Mountain Trail. If you visit, consider joining the trail's hiking club. It does great work (and you will get a must-have map).

We stayed 2 nights in a 35' class A. Well maintained campground in forest overlooking lake. Level gravel sites. There is a nice scenic drive along the ridge through the park with several overlooks, including the place were FDR had his barbecues. We drove to Warm Springs and visited FDR's Little White House and Museum, which was very worthwhile.

This was our first time here. We live locally and this was nice close weekend get away with some
Friends. The park is very easy to get to with many things to do or not do when you get there.
The entrance to the park has a pretty step downhill grade as you head into the park.. the roads to the individual sites are paved but not very wide with several tight turns and low branches.. it’s pretty tricky unless you are on the lake facing sites.. doable but you have to pay attention to what you are doing.
We were 4 groups getting together and we were in camping area 3. The lots are gravel and well maintained but 3 of the 4 lots were not very level at all.. flat yes, but the 3 had pretty good grades for leveling back/forth.. depending on your rig’s length it could be a problem. I had to move my rig 2xs to get it to an spot where I could park it and get it level.
I was on 213 and the water pressure was very low. Couldnt use it as a ciity water hook up. Ended up filling my tank and using the rigs pump.. Power was fine.
The grounds are very well kept and clean. Lots of shade.. we will come back but I’ll know now what spots to book/grab when I check in. Look forward to the pool..
Overall not a bad place but not great either. The reservations are not site specific so call ahead and see when you can check-in so you can get a good site
