We tried to visit the day use area about a year or two ago. There are no pets allowed in the day use area; however, at the time, the sign was hidden by a tree. The staff followed us to the parking area AFTER we paid to let us know, then REFUSED to give us a refund for an honest... More

It's a shame that the staff and absurd rules make this beautiful campground absolutely unbearable. My husband tried to go to work Friday morning and was locked in and the staff wouldn't unlock the gates until 7am. Sounds like False Imprisonment to me. The staff at check-in were rude and unhelpful. The park attendants were Nazis driving by constantly and... More

Nice campground with great views of Lake Lanier. Roads are well paved which makes it easy to maneuver into sites, most sites are easy to access. Only complaint is the locked gate which closes around 10pm and doesn't open till 8am, there is no code. Would especially like to be able to leave earlier and get through Atlanta.

Very friendly campground host great you. Beautiful place with some of the nicest campsites I have ever stayed at. Little chilly in April but with a fire it's not to bad. Can't wait to see what the rest of lake is like. Excited to plan future trips.

Absolutely love it! Staff is excellent and so friendly. Grace is extremely helpful. Million dollar views. Can't wait to get back in the spring! So many great sites to choose from. Nice playground and washrooms. This prettiest place we have camped.

Old federal campground is 45 minutes outside of Atlanta. Very beautiful spot to relax and enjoy beautiful views and company. Campground staff is very polite and very knowledgeable of surrounding areas. I would visit this facility more often did to View, relaxation, and good company.

You can get nice lake views from other campgrounds without the hassles of this place. On check-in we were told that we can’t have our golf cart since it isn’t tagged. In GA you don’t tag a golf cart. Our out of state family did have license tags for theirs & were still told their carts weren’t allowed. But the... More

First, the grounds are beautiful. The facilities are average at best. The camp hosts are elderly, not family friendly. The "federal park rangers" WILL cite you for anything for anything they can. Even 1 tire on the grass. However it is ok to let your small dogs off leash and poop wherever they like unenforced. The host will creep by... More

Amazing sites for our small RV. We were perched right above the lake and could hear the water lapping at the shore. Water/electric only with 20/30/50 amp plus tent sites. The sites are large, shaded and most with concrete pads. Numerous water activities available
