Inexpensive, and up to most state park standards. Gorgeous surroundings. Tent sites are walk in, and if you get there late you will be walking a fair way to your site, but that helps keep it quiet. We were easily within sight of neighbors, not a lot of privacy, but outside of shouting distance for the most part. Bathrooms/showers were clean and decent. Camper/RV sites were even closer together and didn't look very level (it's the mountains after all). Family events in the tenting area included story telling around a bonfire and the fixings for smores, some ranger talks etc. There's a playground, a creek where the kids splashed around and rock-hopped for hours, and a river where we saw a number of people fishing. We enjoyed a nearby hiking trail (some climbing would be hard for older folks) up to beautiful Angel Falls, but it was extremely crowded. We got stuck behind two busloads of teenagers:-) The park is located near wineries and a variety of interesting towns - it's a 5 minute drive to Helen, a tourist mecca; they style themselves as Little Bavaria, and have done it well. Beer, schnitzel, trolls ... and "Tubing the Hooch", which is a must do activity-riding inflated tubes down the Chatahoochie river. A beautiful, natural, inexpensive and family-oriented campground, worth repeating.

This is a small campground at the base of the mountains on the Tallulah Gorge. The campground has about 50 sites, some good for tents, and some larger sites for trailers, motor homes, great for pop-ups. Only a few pull throughs, most are back in and some are tight if you have a lot of slides. The sites 1 - 12 were very uneven/slanted and I would only try them in a tent or pop-up. Bath houses were heated, had an unpleasant odor, but seemed to be clean with good water pressure and stayed hot. The best part of this campground is the hiking on the gorge rims. There is a south and north rim, each about 1/2 mile to 3/4 mile long with great lookout view points to overlook the gorge floor with many waterfalls. If you are a picture taker, you'll love the rim hikes. There is a paved 3 mile trail for bikes, skates and foot traffic that takes you on scenic views of the river, lake and small falls. We had the fortune to also see some fall color dotted here and there. There is a lake for swimming but not anything I'd want to swim in, was closed for winter, maybe it looks better in the summer. Nice picnic spots around the lake for roadside stopping. There is also an Interpretive Center that shows history of the gorge and Georgia Power. There is laundry, dump station, playground picnic shelter, and telephone. Sites have electric and water only. Water had a very yellow tint so bring bottled water for drinking. Staff was very friendly.
