This campground is the best of all worlds. The sites are huge, far apart, clean, level, quiet, and surrounded by beautiful scenery. It rained buckets while we were there and we didn't have any mud problems anywhere in the campground. Something practically unknown for a state park - they have full hookups. And by full hookups I mean electric, water, sewer AND cable. Reservations can be made in advance, and the nightly rate is cheap for what you get in return. There are numerous activities in the park but the best is any hike to one of the many waterfalls. The park has even incorporated a GPS geocaching game by giving you the coordinates for a number of sites to find and, once found, result in you receiving a certificate of completion of the game. If you tire of cooking at your campsite it is not a long drive to the Wildflower Cafe in Meltone, Alabama (tomato pie) or to the Canyon Grill in Rising Fawn, Georgia (one of the state's top 10 restaurants). Enjoy!
