We tent camped over Memorial Day weekend, no electricity. The camp was packed and when it is full you definitely feel too close to other campers, I could hear people snoring. I would go on a less popular weekend next time. The website said check in was at 1pm, I arrived at 12:30 to try to get a lake side spot, the camp was already full. After talking to other campers people had paid for camping two days prior and just put their tag on the lakeside spot and went home, you won't get a nice spot unless you do that on a busy weekend.
The bathrooms were fine, but I noticed the one closest to us was 10 times cleaner than the one further in, maybe because we were next to the camp monitors?
We could fit our two room tent on our site, no problem, we had a smaller tent for our friend and it was no problem to put it off to the side, it wasn't on the actual camp pad but it was flat and fine.
We drove down to the designated swimming lake and it wasn't great, super small, other parks on Lake Acworth have much better swimming lakes. If you are going there for the swimming lake, I'd look elsewhere. Our friends found an area to swim off of one of the trails, we went back the next day and boats were parked in all the possible swimming spots, so it didn't work out for us.
The moral of my story is don't go on a holiday weekend. Getting a lakeside spot would have made all the difference, we could have had swimming at our site, and further away from everyone ( we had to be next to road by the time I arrived .)
