“Some sites looked OK, our site was not”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Salacoa Creek is a county park and $18 per night including water and electric. Set on a lake (123 acres) it is in a nice area. The problem is the sites are very close together with little privacy. Restrooms were clean. Park was kept clean. But the closeness of the sites leads me to give them just an average rating.

There is a nice swimming beach (open noon until 7pm) and kayak/canoe rentals. Good fishing here too I understand.

We were on site 21. Not great. If you can get site 27 I would recommend it since the view looked nice and it seemed a bit more private. You can make reservations online.

“Hidden gem, but closed during cold months.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

This place is stunning. A gorgeous park that merits more visitors than it normally gets. However, don't plan on visiting during the colder months...for some reason, they don't like to open in fall or winter.

“One of the best kept secrets in Gordon County...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

The lake is very nice and so peacefull... A great place to take the family for a picnic...It's a beautiful place to visit in the fall because the trees here are so vivid with all of the colors of the season. It's also a great place for a family reunion or a cookout.

“Great park for the family.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

We recently went and spent a long weekend at Salacoa Creek Park in Ranger, Georgia. This was the first time e had ever camped at this particular park, and I must say for what I wanted - it was awesome. The park caretaker is top notch, and the facilities are good.

There are many pros that I could name that far outweigh the negative. The only thing I see the county park officials could do different with this park is to update the bath house and restrooms in the campground. They are in need of major updating and cleaning - shower etc.. They were not necessarily nasty, but the bathing facility is well used and tired. Also, it would be nice if the park would sell Firewood like many of the state parks are now doing. Firewood in nature is hard to find around this particular park. Fort Mountain State Park has a good firewood selling program this park could use as a model.

Finally it would be good if the park could get more staff and/or volunteers to help do chores and keep the park clean. The local lake is in need of some litter pick-up TLC on the banks and outer edges. I did pick up while I was there, but it needs a good crew to keep the park beautiful.

Overall the park is A+ in my book, and I will be bringing the family back ASAP.
