Loved this park for a short getaway during fall break from Atlanta. We rented yurt #3 which was in great location, access to the lake and nice view, very clean and practical. The bathrooms were incredibly clean and well maintained so was very pleasantly surprised....More

Another well planned and maintained GA State Park. Lots of shady campsites, some were rather tight to get into. Apparently they stay fairly booked for camping but we stayed 2 nights. Huge lake for fishing, boating, swimming area and boat ramps.

We do a lot of hiking and were down visiting family on lake Hartwell. We all decide to go to Tugaloo for a hike. It is a really nice and not too crowded place. Easy 3-4 mile hikes around the lake. well kept place.

Ramp and dock are great!!! Park pass makes it easy and cheap to use the park. We practice for tournaments out of here. Great camping and beach also. We do a church camping trip out there every year great for kids and adults.

This is a great State Park. It has yurts, traditional camping and cabins. Many of the campsites have great views of the lake!

This was our first visit to this state park and it was a very positive one. The sites are well manicured, shaded, and good size for most campers. Many, if not most, of these sites are waterfront. Bathrooms were adequate but limited to 2 showers...More

My 2 kids and I stayed in Yurt #1. The yurt is very roomy, with a double bed, and bunks. The website says the top bunk is a twin, but it’s really more like a double. Other furniture include a small(ish) counter height table and...More

Yurts overlook the water. It's down hill but just a short walk up from the shore after being out on the lake. Longer walk down from the car with the kayaks to the Yurts. They have carts though.
