This is a state park, is well maintained, has a good number of good campsites, and offers a great experience for campers. The park is on Lake Hartwell, just a few minutes out of Lavonia or Toccoa. This park is one of the top parks in the Georgia State Park system.

This is by far the most amazing place for tent camping! They have 11 "walk-in" sites which have both water and electricity and an awesome view of the lake. The bathhouses are very clean and close to the campsites. The tent pads are on gravel so be sure to bring your air mattress or pad. On our most recent trip... More

This was our first time glamping in a yurt and it was fantastic. What a wonderful way to itch that travel/camping bug when the weather is cold or damp. Luckily we had fabulous weather but regardless, this campground is wonderfully laid out. There are spectacular views of the lake from just about every yurt (yurt 1 is ADA accessible and... More

Mu husband and I needed a quiet and peaceful retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of raising three kids. I discovered the yurts at Tugaloo and knew it was the place to go. I was right. The bathrooms were clean. The water was hot and the showers kept maintained. The setting of the yurts was very nice. We cooked... More

We went to Tugaloo State Park for the 1st time during the week of thanksgiving! Our family of 5 (3 boys ages 12, 10, 5) stayed in Yurt #1 from Wednesday thru Saturday that week. The yurt had 2 plug-in heaters. We kept them on high the whole time. We never got "hot" but we weren't freezing either. We were... More

Stayed in a lakeside site during Halloween weekend. Was surprised to find nearly every site was decorated, and was even more surprised at the number of trick or treaters (@150). some of the sites are a little close, but there are PLENTY that provide privacy. The bathrooms are very nice. And when I pulled into the campground with my 37'... More

The park has beautiful views. You can find a quiet place to relax but there are activities for children also. Plenty of camping as well as day trip visits. Be sure to get an annual pass, it's good at other GA parks.

If you love the escape from the concrete jungle... then read on ! If you prefer to be entertained then you are probably done here! This park is situated on a peninsula within Lake Hartwell at Lavonia GA which is also located near the SC border and it is home to the most beautiful hardwoods, birds, even deer and offers... More

My husband and our 2 teens stopped by for a picnic and to relax. Great picnic spot in the shade lakefront. They toured cabin 16 for a future trip. The kids walked around the lake and my hubby took it easy and watched canoes and boats go by. There are plenty of trails to walk for our next visit.
