Very nice State Park with improved and level sites. Only draw back is no sewer connection but they do have an easy to get to dump station.

Pretty park near the Okeefenokee. We rented bikes and biked around the campground for a half hour or so during a day trip there. Would be good for picnics and such. Only GA state park named for a woman. (random fact included free of charge!).

My daughter and tent camped here for one night. Very nice campground next to the lake. Showers and bathrooms clean and well maintained. Worth a day or two if you’re traveling through this area.

It was excellent. Tricky getting in but we managed, took the wrong loop. Once installed, the view is the lake was breathtaking! Will definitely return when we are in that neck of the woods.
