Nice setting

The lake is full of cypresses, which gives the impression that it goes on forever. There is a mill that goes over a dam, which is a museum. We didn't camp here, but I would... read more

The lake is full of cypresses, which gives the impression that it goes on forever. There is a mill that goes over a dam, which is a museum. We didn't camp here, but I would definitely be willing to visit again.

We stayed two nights in the campground. Prices were reasonable and sites were gorgeous. Most sites back up to the lake and are slightly terraced with stairs leading down to the lake. Nice level site, water and electric hookups. Not many sites so fills up quickly. One bathhouse which was clean and well maintained. We us noisy neighbors but that... More

Quiet, beautiful place. Full hook up RV, only downfall is they don't assign spaces so little campers can take big spots leaving larger rigs without a good space to go to. Good walking, jogging trails. Bring your mosquitoe spray, you will need it. $10 for an hour canoe rental. I will return.

We camped here at this state park Friday night. We got there pretty early and it was first come first serve for the site. Staff was nice and park is very wooded. Our tent site was right on the shore of the lake. This truly is a paddlers dream. The park is small and it filled up!!!! We signed up... More

The lake was very nice and calming. All the cypress trees in the lake made it magical. Love this place, so quiet and peaceful. Beware of alligators signs all over place. So keep puppies leashed.

Its a beautiful lake and the park is well taken care of, however if you are a fisherman like myself, look somewhere else. I have been to the lake 2 times, with artificial bait and with shiners and have yet to even get a single bite! Otherwise a nice and quiet place to visit.

It was a pretty nice park. It was fairly big. They did have some spots marked off because they were cleaning up around the area a bit. Not a bad experience.

Off the beaten path, about 1.5 hours from Savannah. There is a lot to explore by kayak or paddle board in the large lake/reservoir. The park rangers were very laid back...and by that I mean that we paid for the kayak and then figured everything else out on our own. Bring bug spray and be on the look out for... More

This is such a LOVELY place!! The campsites are so peaceful backed up to the lake with all those grand cypress trees along the water's edge. There are kayaks available for rent or you can bring your own canoes or kayaks. The sites are clean with concrete slabs for the front of your campers, and camp grills if you want... More

Camped for 4 days in a large travel trailer at the campground. The mosquitoes were not bad but we did keep a citronella candle burning just in case. Most of the rv sites are located directly on the water. Great park with a lot for the kids to do from kayaks, canoe, fishing, geocaching, bike riding, to playing ball in... More
