As far as state parks go, this wasn't bad. We went camping over the Fourth of July weekend. Had some issues with neighboring campers using generators all night with bright lights and up all night until 3am talking and kids screaming and playing (quiet hours are 10pm-6am). Needless to say, I traveled 4 hours to experience peace and quiet and... More

We had a great time. We were looking for a quick weekend camping getaway. We decided to try Fairfield State Park and were very pleased. We camped in our RV in the Cooks Ferry Loop and saw lots of wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to return soon.

Camped here in a travel trailer. Could not reserve a site or have someone save a site even though we paid for the weekend. We were lucky to find a site as they let people just drive through and pick whatever site they want (after hours). Bathrooms were clean with nice hot showers but the shower head could take your...

I live nearby and go out to the state park on occasion,first off,since the fish die offs several yrs in a row,the fishing is not good,they should be restocking this lake with fish like before,especially red fish. Need to build another couple of fishing piers also. Picnic areas need to be cleaned up better and grills replaced. Still,this is a... More

This is a great camping spot. The lake is shared with a power plant so the water is hot in the summer time. Some nice dual use trails for Mt Bikes or hikes. Be careful not to hit the deer when you drive in.

WOW did we have a great time at the park. The first thing that happened was being greeted by the State Officer working at the office when we pulled in. He was overly nice and made us feel welcome as soon as we pulled in. The staff inside were considerate and understanding to everyone. The line was a little long... More

The park was nice! Our first visit there. We saw deer, fox, raccoons, squirrels, lots of armadillos (yes, actually alive!). Fishing was somewhat disappointing...but really nice fishing pier. Nice facilities...no one should have guys clean the bathrooms! lol

Fairfield State Park has easy access from the North or South. The Park is approximately 8 miles from town and there are grocery stores available in Fairfield. The RV camping spots are assigned upon entry into the park and visitors are not allowed to roam the park and find the site they may want. They do however fill the best... More
