The location and scenery are very nice along Lake Chatuge. The park definitely needs maintenance and renovations. Water pressure was extremely low at the camp site. One night we lost water pressure completely till morning...not sure if a pump went out at the park or what happened. Thankfully we always fill up our fresh water tank before leaving home so we just used our own water. The location of the sewer at our site was about 12-16" above grade compared to the parking pad, and all the way to the rear of site (behind the RV). Thus, we couldn't make much use of sewer hook up as we only had about 6" of pitch over a 24' distance...hard to accomplish with flexible sewer hose. Looked like most of the other sites had better placement of sewer connections, but our site suffered major oversight concerning the sewer placement. There was a lot of mud across the parking pad/paved areas from erosion. One thing that was a little strange is the layout of the campsites. In the area we stayed at the odd spaces were angled one direction, and the even spaces were angled another direction, so there was two-way traffic on a single one-way road. So it is possible to have two big rigs coming in opposite directions with neither knowing it until they meet in the middle. The playground was dated with hot sheet metal slides and a lot of galvanized parts rusting...definitely due for replacement. The tennis courts needed resurfacing with grass growing through them. Only 2 of 4 basketball hoops were operational (rest were missing backboards other parts). The water pressure at the dump station was so low it was unusable for the black tank flush...it literally was about a trickle. On a positive note, the fireworks on July 4 were close to camp sites. They were short, but the closeness gave it the "wow" factor. The park was kept fairly clean in terms of trash...crews regularly picked up small leftover trash in public areas. Overall the park has potential, but it desperately needs renovations to grounds and its mechanicals. Did not checkout bathrooms as we never need/use them.

Great location, campground in on beautiful Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee Ga. Lake and mountain views are awesome. Anderson Music Hall is within walking distance for concerts. Many big trees for shade and a nearby boat ramp. Clean grounds in and around the campground. Nice and friendly people. WIFI rocks it! More than ample connection and speed. However, this is a very old county run campground. They need to come in and rehab the whole place. Sites are paved (asphalt) but are short, narrow and not level. The water supply is rusty looking, use a water filter. Bathrooms are clean, but very old and run down. I have yet to find any laundry facilities at the campground. There are two sections. Area I – Is closed in the winter, has 92 sites with water, 50 AMP electricity service, WIFI Internet, and Cable TV. These sites are extremely steep and rocky. Area II – Open during the winter and has 97 sites with water & 50 AMP electricity service, 96 sewer hookups. Paved sites, WIFI Internet, and Cable TV. Again not level, narrow and short sites. We will continue to come and stay, because of the location and events center.

I've been spending summers there for about 10 years now and have watched it go slowly downhill each year. No money is being spent on upkeep. Restrooms have damaged, rusted showers and sinks, shower curtains are the same from year to year and are so old they are stiff. They used to be spotless. So bad I quit going there. Grass growing on the abandoned tennis courts, basketball goals missing. It makes me sad that such a perfect location is being so neglected. Maybe new management could turn it around.
