Upon Entering the campground the first thing I noticed was that the road was bumpy and clay, probably not ideal to drive on when it's been raining. Just further inside the road to the right up a little path on a hill, there's an old torn up and burned abandoned camper, very much of an eyesore. Upon arriving at the... More

We read the reviews online and decided to give it a try anyway and we are glad we did. Not sure how many owners it has had or who or when they got a new owner, but they seem to be doing a good job keeping the area clean and mowed. No gate at the beginning that will tear a... More

We were recently in the area and previewed the campgrounds closest to Dahlonega.Etowah River CG is quite close, but I am glad we previewed it rather than showing up exhausted after a long drive. We did not stay here, so this is just from a first impression only, take it or leave it. Once you leave the paved road, there... More

We really enjoyed our visit. The campground and the host are very laid back. Our site had plenty of space and backed up to the river. It was very quiet where we were. We couldn't hear any rv sounds. We were able to set up our large tent and an easy up with plenty of space. Our site had water,... More

My family and I had an amazing time. The campsites were clean. The staff is very kind and courteous. We had a great time playing in the river. My kids enjoyed the playground. It was very quiet and peaceful. I would definitely go back.

We stayed at ERC for two nights while our son went through orientation at UNG. The campground is the closest one to the campus that we could find. It is an easy drive to the campus. The campground was very quiet, the grass was mowed and the roads had been recently scraped down. The river at the back of the... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The campgrounds were clean and well kept. The bathrooms were older, but were clean. Soap and toilet paper were regularly replinished. It rained most of the time we were there - the roads do get quite muddy.

Scenic and tranquil. We used to camp here for years. Last year we swore we wowouldn't return due to the filth and loud drunken brawls we witnessed. Previous owner is now gone. Campground is now clean and quiet. Grass mowed and tidy bathrooms. We plan on resuming our monthly camping trips to this beautiful campground. We plan to contact all... More

Camped at this campground for 3 nights during Labor Day weekend. If you love the outdoors you will love this place. We picked lot 6 which is a short distance walk to the river. It is a nice, relaxing and remote location. The campground is only 7-10 minutes from the university of north Georgia Dalohnega campus. It is very rustic... More

If you are a camper that loves the 'KOA Experience' of graveled tent pads and falling asleep to the roar of a thousand RV air conditioners, this is NOT the campground for you. A friend and I spent Saturday night at Etowah River before kayaking the river on Sunday. We were in the primitive tent section and I think that... More
