Date of stay was 04/13/2012. Gnats swarm thru the campground during the day, seem to disappear when the sun goes down. Sundown is when the rednecks come out cruising the shoreline drinking alcohol and using vulgar language. Around 10:00 PM a large party of drunks cranked up their party music and cussing, could be heard from one end of campground to the other. It took the Campground Host and Park Rangers almost an hour to quiet the group down.

One of the best sites in Georgia. Would stay often but the campground stays full most of the time so book early. Moored my boat next to my site.

This campground is a couple of miles off Hwy 280 and sits on an inlet from the 8000 acre Lake Blackshear; there are three camping areas and Camping Areas 1 & 2 have lakefront sites and lakeview sites with varying amounts of shade; Camping Area 3 sits back off the water in a wooded (mostly shaded) area and has all pull-throughs; canoes and kayaks can be launched from sites within the campground. This park can handle any size rig although the roads in all campground areas are very narrow with trees on both sides; Slow and steady is the name of the game. Bathhouses (they call them "comfort stations") have been refurbished and clean; The park itself has a golf course, a disc golf course, a model airplane strip, a hiking trail that is hardly worth mentioning, a day use swimming area on the lake, and fishing and boating (pontoon and power boats are available for rent); the campground has pretty good security with a gate requiring a code to get in (in fact, if you arrive after 10:00 you cannot get a vehicle in at all - you must walk in); The office staff was friendly, but there was no "wow" factor; There were several sites that would have worked for our rooftop satellite dish, but most were occupied when we arrived on a Monday (it was spring break). Overall, this is a nice campground with a great layout in a fairly natural setting. The waterfront site kept us from griping about the price which we thought was a little on the high side. There was something about it that didn't quite grab us, but based on the on-site activities available in the park, we think it warrants a better score than some of the other campgrounds we have rated a 3.
