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.

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.

We camped with our travel trailer here over July 4th weekend. We did reserve a "premium" campsite, which are right on Lake Hartwell. We had plenty of space and had such a relaxing time. The previous reviews talk about the terrible roads--these roads are not "terrible". They are older roads, but I have definitely experienced worse. We had no issues... More

We enjoyed the lake and getting away from it all while visiting here. The area around this park is also nice with great bbq right down the road.

This state park is very clean and well maintained. The bath area for tent and yurt campers was immaculate. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There are a total of six yurts, each very private. Trees surround each of the yurts, and are pretty far from each other. Six people can fit in one -- two futons and a... More

This is a GA state park on Lake Hartwell. I have camped, hiked and fished from this park. Great lake front campsites with clean bathrooms, Modern boat launch ramp with plenty of room and parking. Also quite a few miles of hiking trails that take you through the park. We often hike on weekends to get some exercise. Highly recommended... More

This review pertains to the cabins available at Tugaloo State Park, only. There are, I believe, about 20 cabins available. An on-line reservation system is accessed via the GA State Parks website that lets you know exactly what is available, when - very convenient and hassle free. Approximately 30 fraternity brothers/wives/friends re-uned here for the weekend, 40 years after college... More
