This campground feels calm and secluded, but it is close to the gorge and plenty of restaurants. They provide primitive tent camping, spots for RVs, and cabins. We had our tent, but the owner let us stay in a "hut" style building right on the river. There is a cool recreation building to hang out in if you are feeling sociable, or if you want to relax and read inside during an afternoon rain shower. Bathrooms were clean. I want to live at this campground!
Owner was very nice but first night neighbors arrived and set up 1:30 a.m. We complained and 2nd night they were up partying till 3 a.m. Showers and bathroom needed cleaning and smelled like rotten eggs. Will not return.
We visited north Georgia from VA for my birthday and happened to stumble upon this place during an internet search. We were lucky enough to stay during the hippie fest and the music was amazing. They even had breakfast Sunday morning. What a great place to stay! Beautiful tent camping on the river, not to mention such nice people that run the place. The nearby hiking was great and this was a beautiful place to return to in the evening.
What an amazing place! We enjoyed camping at River Campground for 5 days. Wish we could stay longer. This place is very serene and peaceful. Not far from Tallulah Gorge State Park, close enough to restaurants and shopping in a little charming down of Clayton, and minutes away from South Carolina border. I would highly recommend River Campground to everyone.
I had several family members, and their pets, evacuated from the recent hurricane. We found this perfect, scenic, spot to park their very large RV. The caretakers of the campground were extremely helpful and very accommodating. They even provided us with a grill. It was a great experience. We had fun exploring, fishing, cooking, and campfires at this wonderful place.
