“Serene Retreat in the Southern Woods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

The alligators were hibernating, but the deer came out to greet me upon my arrival at this serene retreat in the southern woods. Though the rooms are spare, bare bones motel style, they're clean and the management is pleasant. Having come down south on business, I could not, alas, take advantage of the setting. I walked up to the edge of the lake, looked around for gators, and then walked back. But bikes are available and time and walking shoes is all you need to wander the woods.

Room Tip: My room faced the parking lot, but perhaps there are rooms that face the lake.

Originally reserved one night, but decided to stay 2 after enjoying the peaceful, quiet surroundings. Our room was average, a typical motel type/state park lodge room. It was small, but very adequate and clean. Rates are very reasonable. There is not much in the area, so thanfully the lodge restaurant is open for each meal. If you need a peaceful get away in a beautiful setting, I recommend the lodge at Bagby State Park.

We brought our family here for a week and all stayed in the cottages. The cottages are nice and they are clean, the staff here is super nice and the grounds are kept nicely. The issue was the amount of gigantic roaches that took over the cabin. I thought they would pick up the place and walk off with it! Also, there were loaded mousetraps just waiting to be snapped. Not so safe for people who have kids and quite disgusting.... For those who might not know, there are alligators in the waters and on the property so beware.

Overall, it was a nice trip, but there is a lack of things to do.

Definitely go to the gas station up the street for meat and three! Excellent!

We stayed in the Lodge over Memorial Day weekend and have already made reservations for later this year. I was very impressed - every staff member smiled and greeted us pleasantly, the rooms we had were clean and the A/C was bone-chilling! The rooms were everything we wanted - clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and a great view of the lake. In fact the entire park was very clean. We fished and visited the area but the one experience that stood out for everyone was going through the lock from the lake to the river. We even spent time with park manager Shawn Baltzell who went out of his way to make us feel at home. Our entire family had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back face the lake and are somewhat quieter.

There is nothing special about this place.

It is old, but not dirty. There are basically no amenities available on Sundays. The closest eating establishments are 30 - 45 mins. away in Alabama.

And you might open your motor-style door to find state convicts parked immediately before your room as they prepare for a day of labor.

This was the last of 3 cabin stays at Georgia state parks. The cabin was great. The check in clerk was totally useless but other than that, we had a great time. The views are fantastic, the cabin was clean, great cable tv channel selections and very spacious.

I stayed at this lodge two weekends in a row because there is not much of an alternative. The beds are very hard and spiders are everywhere... inside and outside of the rooms. I guess the help keep down the gnat, love bug and roach populations. The buffet usually had food on it prepared hours before so you might want to order off the menu. I got double billed on my VISA the first week but they promised to correct the mistake.
