Has anyone stayed at the Hiawassee RV Park and Campground south of highway 228 in Georgia? I believe it was ran as a hobby by the gentlemen in the past. It is one we are considering looking at an or maybe buy so I am curious if anyone has stayed in the area or at the park. Any information on the park or area would be helpful. If the deal goes through we will be offering a discount for all my fellow veterans and active duty. Thanks in advance for your time.

Hiawassee is a beautiful area. Just got into the Georgia Mountain Fairground Campground here in Hiawassee this afternoon. Tomorrow will explore the area some. Not familiar with the park you mentioned this one looked good for some reason, wifi and cable, maybe. Sure is pretty in Hiawassee from what I could see driving in! Clarence & Judy

Thank-you for your reply and nice picture. The campground I am speaking of is not known by many as the owner has only run it part time as a hobby. It is supposed to be at the end of Long Ridge Road at 180 Jarrard Camp road. We plan on heading down there at the end of the month to check it out. It looks nice there, getting anxious to check the area out. Enjoy Hiawassee.

Let us know what comes of the visit. We're not too far away and are always looking for a weekend escape. The Hiawassee River provides some excellent birding. Especially in Tennessee. The Sand Hill Cranes stop over here in the winter. An amazing sight. :)

There's a bunch of us from the Augusta, Georgia area who head to the mountains every October for the Oktoberfest in Helen. The campground we've been going to for the last 25 years closed last year. :(

Let us know what happens....we might have some business for you!! ;)

The only thing wrong with being retired is that you never get a day off!

Cherokee Campground...about 5 miles from downtown Helen. Nice couple run the place, FHU, pull throughs, very reasonable price. Here's their website:

RiverBend Campground is an awesome campground. It is about 2-3 miles from Hiawassee, GA. It can be accessed from either US 76 or GA 17. It rests on the banks of the Hiawassee River, which the kids loved to wade and swim in. They also allow some fishing. Quite a few FHU and some "homesteaders". But you better reserve early. They take reservations 12 months out and they are booked for this fall.

We spent 2 weeks in Helen last month. Stayed at Creekwood Resort. It is a small RV Park clean well cared for lots of shade. Good cable and strong wifi. The owners are great. It is 6 miles North of downtown Helen. Unicoi State Park is there too and their lodge has great food at a decent price. Creekwood has a website too.
Happy travels.... Clarence & Judy

Thanks for all your replies. We were lucky enough to get a cancellation at Creekwood for 5 nights. This will be our third camping trip. The other two have been only 2 & 3 hours away from home, so we're very excited to be going farther away and getting out of hot Florida! It's not really camping until we have a firepit & make s'mores, as far as I'm concerned! Looking forward to Oktoberfest in Helen, seeing Anna Ruby Falls, and hopefully hubby will get to do some fishing.

You will enjoy Helen and Creekwood Resort. Tell Melisa the old happy guy (Mr Cotton) with the remote controlled Skunk recommended you to stay there. They do have fire pits there. Great little place right across the road that makes fresh cinnamon rolls in the mornings. Recommend going straight thru Atlanta, but not during rush hours and Creek wood has good directions on their site.
Happy travels... Clarence & Judy
