Park Rangers rarely patrolled the campgrounds prompting a few campers to allow their dogs to run loose through the campsites. Camp store is privately owned, and does not honor “Friends” discounts. Fish Bait can be purchased at Ace Hardware Store in Pine Mountain. Fish were not biting in March. Enter and exit campground from back entrance only, trailer will drag at front entrance across from check-in office.

We love the Pine Mountain area. Callaway Gardens is beautiful in the Spring and great hiking, biking or golfing any time. We also love the Wild Animal Farm and visiting FDR's Little White House. F.D.R. State Park puts you right in the middle of all these activities plus it provides some great hiking as well as a nice lake for fishing. The campsites are a little run down - gravel with some erosion but nothing serious. Pool is closed in 2009 for budget cuts. But the sites are nicely spaced and shaded. As someone else noted, the drive from registration to the park is slightly steep and winding but nothing the largest motorhome could handle. We camp here about once a year.

The campground has a good variety of sites in a natural setting. The only issue was a lack of water pressure in the bathroom sinks.

his campground seems miles away from everything as you enter the state park main entrance. Later we learned that the rear exit of the campground is closer to U.S. Hwy 27 than we thought, but it is still pretty secluded; The entire campground is heavily wooded and the setting is gorgeous; There are 5 camping sections; Sections 1, 2, and 4 (our section) sit on Lake Delanor which is a beautiful little mountain lake - most sites in those sections are lake view and a few are lake front. The park can handle just about any size rig, but the number of sites for the really big ones are limited; the roads in all campground areas are very narrow with trees on both sides; Go slow, slow, slow; Also, the incline from registration down to the campground is very, very steep. A couple of bathhouses (they call them "comfort stations") are very nice, while the others are old, but clean; The dump station is on the way out using the rear exit, which is nice because it is a much easier drive than coming from the main entrance; The bad thing is that locals use the campground's main road to cut through the park - however, they were working on gates when we were there; The park itself has two lakes, a swimming pool (open between Labor Day & Memorial Day), stables, and several hiking trails; fishing is allowed on the lakes, but motorized boats are not; However, you must rent one of their boats - we were not allowed to put our canoe on the lake which was irritating; The office staff was friendly, and went out of their way to accomodate us when I made a reservation mistake and reserved for the same time the following month; There were very few sites that would have worked for our rooftop satellite dish - we got lucky. Overall, this is a beautiful campground in a natural setting. We were so relaxed and never really felt the urge to leave the campground or the park during our stay. There were fewer activities in the park than at Georgia Veterans, but we felt much more in our element here and the beauty of our spot bumped it above to a 4.
