“Very nice park in the Mountains”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Vogel is a very well kept park with a large lake, trails, picnic area, cabins, etc. It is in the mountains in North Georgia and the area around there is typical of the scenery in a mountainous area. The lake is very nice and large and there are several activities available for visitors. The water fall off of the spillway is fantastic and very beautiful. There is a path down to a deck near the bottom of the falls or you can see the falls from the highway just north of the park entrance. This is a great family stop if you are in the area.

“Perfect place to camp with kids!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 5 days in an RV. Site 27 was absolutely perfect. The kids loved playing in the creek nearby. They have putt-putt for $5 a person (under 3 is free). Horse shoes can be borrowed from the office. They restock the lake with trout pretty often so fishing is great. Many hiking trails nearby, from short little trails to 12 mile loops. The blue trail is quite a hike to the mountain top, but the view from the overlook is well worth it. Staff are helpful and pleasant. Little store onsite carries necessities you might have forgotten. We will definitely be back.

“Beautiful State Park, Always a Must Visit!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We vacation in Blairsville, Georgia regularly. Each visit we set aside time to visit Vogel State Park. Vogel is situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the scenery is amazing. Our kids (ages 13, 12 and 7) like the miniature golf course and the fishing in Lake Trahlyta, if it isn't warm enough to swim or paddleboat. The adults enjoy the waterfall, the trout stream and the wonderful hiking. Vogel is perfect for a day with the kids. We haven't stayed on the property, but the cabins look amazing and some are located right on the water.
