We spent the weekend here on our way to North Georgia mountains. Great park with lots of nice quiet spacious parking spots. We had a full hook up spot (#6) and enjoyed the park immensely. Not a lot to do in the immediate area but since we went there to relax and get away, it was perfect. The water provides plenty of activities for those so inclined and we spent considerable time just walking around the park saying hello to people and enjoying the peacefulness. They provide sowers and restrooms though we did not need either and the store has a little of everything one might need. This was the first state park we have been to that had putt putt golf for the guests The park has a museum and some other small local attractions that will keep you busy if you are so inclined also. The staff were pleasant and helpful and were just plain fun to talk to. When we woke up this morning, we could smell bacon, sausage, eggs and coffee throughout the park. What a way to end the weekend. We had no issues with cellular connection and were able to stream on Verizon. Then we read they had cable and saw the hookup but we never used it. The over the air TV reception was minimal but since we were streaming, it did not bother us.…

We escaped FL for 2 weeks camping in GA. 1 full week here . Sorry for the length but when we are searching camping reviews these are the sort of things we look for. We had site #61 which was nicely shaded and fairly private but in a valley. CONS - Spotty if any cell phone service (I KNOW-should not be a big concern when camping but we needed to check weather, news, check in w/family, etc) WiFi available by the office. We just have a basic antenna and picked up zero tv channels. (usually can get 2-3) If we return we'll opt for a site on the adjacent loop which has #51 in the center. 6-7 sites near that one have a view of the Lake. The day after we checked in we had a full day of rain and our fire pit held water for 3-4 days and thick mud after that - thus zero fires. PROS - we were on the fence about the stinky spring water but took advice of those gathering it and left the lids off the jugs for 2-3 days and it is indeed the best spring water ever. Tasteless, clear - if we lived closer we'd certainly grab some regularly. -Bathrooms were cleaned many times a day and were in good shape. -Utilized nice washer & dryer at the bathhouse. -We have tons of mosquitoes in FL (and they love me) thankfully very little issues here. -sweet village just outside the entrance w/quaint shops, one nice restaurant (had a great meal there) Some places open Thur or Fri-Sun but all were open Sat/Sun. -we toured the old hotel which is now a nice museum. And toured some rental cottages (one is a giant house on the corner) -Jackson, GA is nearby, a Dollar General on the way.....but a great country store right there near the park for most needs. -we did a day trip to High Falls which is pretty, walked a few trails - but we'd found here on TA that the campsites were nicer in Indian Springs and that is accurate !!!…

We were camping at High Falls and visited Indian River for a culture visit. Huge park and great sites. We will return. We were here on Tuesday and many of area shops etc are open Thursday -Sunday. Will definitely be back.

The sulphur springs area was closed and dry. I assume due to covid. We were there during week and the little Indian village is mostly closed except for weekends. Nice little river off from park that children were playing in.

Water was amazing! Bring a towel and rubber shoes with traction if you are going to go in the water. Make sure you bring a jug for the healing water but don’t be a jerk like the lady in red shorts today with 18 jugs. She was really doing too much.
