Dec. 18 - 23, 2013
We arrived planning to stay a few days. This time of the year, the area was quiet and calm. We decided to extend a couple more days. Very nice recreation area, with plenty of picnic and camping sites spread out. While not a fancy RV Park, it is a great outdoor recreation area. We had some problems fitting our 40' motor home into the site assigned, but they gladly let us move to another site nearby. I agree with other posters that they could have a couple signs along the entrance road pointing to the lodge. We easily found the lodge, but did start wondering if we had passed it. The lodge isn't near the entrance gate. Everyone working here was fantastic and very kind. We got the senior discount, which makes this a fantastic value. We wish all military campgrounds were fair on their pricing like here. A little out of town, but located on a beautiful lake. Great for this type of camping. Pointes West Recreation Area is on our list to return to!

We stayed three days and got a great campsite. We were right on the water and had a campfire. The staff had cut firewood stacked nearby which was a nice touch. The campground had been recently mowed and the grounds were in great shape. The lake was down but we saw a few boaters and fishermen and saw a guy catch a big one 100 yards away. The laundry is good although it is ways from the campground. Plenty of parking and a good turn around point for checking in before heading to the assigned campsite. My Verizon Mifi worked fine. My AT&T did not work. The campground is 35 miles away from Augusta and Fort Gordon so it takes a while to get there. We went downtown to the Visitor Center and played golf at Fort Gordon one day. The golf course is a real gem and was in great shape. We camped in a 40' MH.

Had a real good stay on our first attempt at RV'ing. Rented canoes for $3 an hour, had a fire ring and lots of firewood available. We had a full hookup at the site, and the kids could walk down and fish from where we could see them. They didn't catch anything, but that is probably just using the wrong bait. No cell phone 3G service (did get AT&T EDGE, so it was a bit slow, but doable). It is a bit of a drive if you want to get something to eat or go to a grocery store. The staff was very helpful and we were pleased with how well the site was kept up.

Decent facilities, clean, well stocked bathrooms. Sites range from good size to small. Not all sites suitable for longer RV. Main roads are paved but drives leading into camp sites are gravel/dirt and can get dusty or muddy depending on weather. Tents mixed in with RV's on full hook up sites but lots of sites available this time of year. There was firewood stacked up at each camping area, looked to be 9 separate areas for camping, water view from a lot of the sites. There is a small camp store, don't expect much, looked quite bare considering the number of camp sites, cabins and rental RV's available. They do rent boats, canoes and other recreational items. Overall a good CG and only about 30 minutes from Augusta.

Just did an overnight here on my way to Florida. This is a beautiful campground. I asked for a pull thru site and they assigned me one that was back in. After maneuvering around the trees into the site I find out that the electric, water and sewer connections had been installed on the wrong side of the campsite as if it were a pull thru. However, they told me I could pick any site if that one did not work. The campground is not really big rig friendly but I did manage to get it. At $12 a night and the beautiful area I would say this is a great campground.
First time visiting this campground and let me start by saying if you are into boating this is the place for you. After arriving we were placed in a site way too small for my trailer (34ft.) went back to office and given a second site, still too small. went back a third time and was went to area # 2, 90% of the sites had cars and trucks parked in it with boat trailers and they were all camping spots, several had tents in a full hook up site; had to settle for a site way in the front just so I can get into one. Now..took a ride around the entire place, not too clean, most of the tent sites had trash on the ground, grass uncut, my site had trash on the ground also. The saving factor was the price, very good for such a large park, and it is very quiet. Would I return to this campground? most likely not....
Only complaint is that it is far away from I20, but I didn't research it good enough for a 1 night stay in route somewhere else. This camp is great for someone that likes fishing and just the outdoors. The big lake is almost at your front door. If you have lots of time to just relax or fish, this is the place. When I have more time to stay I will be back, just not for 1 night.

R.J.H. left this review using the Directory software: Very nice resort. With discount it was only $12.00/night. The scenery around the lake is wonderful. Very quit and VERY clean.

A pretty nice place. We didn't really take advantage of the facilities as it was just too hot & humid! Our oldest son is stationed at Ft. Gordon, so we spent all our time in AC! Our grandson enjoyed the "beach" at the lake. I saw the golf course on base & while it was just too humid for this desert rat to play it, it looked like a really nice one! The RV sites are "ok" & there are a lot of them & NOW that they TAKE RESERVATIONS, highly utilized! Thankfully when I called early on the 19th they had 2 sites left which I gladly gave them a credit card # to reserve one! It was a wooded one, in section 3, but no satellite capability because of the tall & thick pine trees. The next day a few weekend warriors left & I was able to get a more open site in section 2 over looking the lake. I noticed that a lot of sites were reserved for 30 days, but no one utilizing them. It seemed that they were weekend warriors wanting to make sure they had a site for the weekends. It can be a bummer for "us" retirees, but the Fam Camp gets the "bucks" for the entire 30 days! We will go back for several more visits as our son will be at Ft. Gordon for several yrs, but NOT in the summer!

T.L. left this review using the Directory software: Sites are dirt, some are pullthru, almost level. Roads in camping areas are mostly dirt good to fair condition. Other roads are paved in good condition. At site 3H I had to use my 50 amp pigtail adapter because the 30 amp receptacle was installed upside down.
Posting this a little late, but we stayed at Pointes West in September 2008. The water was low, but it was still a beautiful place. The staff and hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We did have one issue after some heavy rain, we had an ant infestation looking for higher ground, but that could happen anywhere. One thing to watch out for are the skunks. In the evening, one wanted to join our camp, luckily he was easily scared off. We would stay there again without hesitation.
H.W. left this review using the Directory software: Area 2 seems to be the best for rv's as it has great views of the lake. So, so friendly staff, but will answer questions if you have any. Fairly clean campground with a small gas station restaurant just outside the facility. Will possibly stay here again, but did enjoy the wildlife (saw a bald eagle swoop down and grab a fish in front of our site).

Stopped here over New Year and stayed in Area #2, site I. We found the view of lake lovely and bath house spotless.The sharp right angle site are an issue with 5th wheel if the place was full, 9 sites filled when we were there. Sites on the left seemed slightly longer, tables were more level. Fire rings at most of the sites in area #2. Nice playground and Beach area about a mile from area #2. We met such nice people at the lodge and swapped out some books.Lodge has a small store with basic stuff, one washing machine and dryer behind store. Will come again, without the rain.
Very good military facility. Super clean restroom. Friendly staff. Good gravel sites. Would stay here again and again.
