After reading reviews and seeing photos, we arrived for our first visit to a CLOSED sign on the office...luckily I pulled the door and they were open. Newbie at front desk only answered questions...did not offer any suggestions nor tell us that two of the three camper areas were closed. Bath house was new and nice but needs lots more... More

My family and I go camping just about every other weekend from spring until fall. We have never once had anything negative about this park! The boat ramps are easy to get into and out of. The campground office has people working that are very friendly. The campground host really make you feel welcomed and apart of the camping family!... More

Had a nice long weekend camping with family at Tugaloo. We stayed in a premium rv site which was roomy and set up nice. The lake was down and there was a fireban due to the drought conditions, but we made the best of it with gas heaters and still had a ball. We come here at least once a... More

Great site on the water, great weather, and the perfect time of year. The water was low due to lack of rain. Other than that, perfect.

We stayed later in October and the weather was perfect. Because of this every campsite was full. The only downside to this place is that you cannot reserve a specific site. You pay in advance and it guarantees you a spot, which one you get depends on how early you get here. However premium sites (on the water) can be... More

Our group of 7 stayed at one of the cottages, and we really enjoyed it. It was cheaper than renting two (or possibly even 3) hotel rooms, and we got a kitchen, a grill and a firepit. Cottage 6 had wonderful views of the sun setting over Lake Hartwell. The cottage isn't luxurious, but it was clean and comfortable. Our... More

We wanted to go camping again before we had to winterize our unit, so we chose a campground that was new to us and not too far away. I had read several other reviews of this campground and we thought we would give it a try. It was very easy to get to since it is pretty much right off... More

We love visiting. It's so pretty and serene. We love going to the white sand beach during the summer. The shower areas and changing stalls are great. So is the beach shop.

The park did not have a lot of visitors; campground was not very full. The roads to the campground needs some attention. Nice beach area, though and miniature golf area was clean. Took a short hike and trail was fine.

the nature trails were kind of grown up and narrow to pass. Beach area looked good but the Lake was low while I was there
