Calhoun KOA

Added by camprate admin

1 review

Time seems to slow when you make the short drive from the interstate to this scenic, shady campground in the foothills of the northern Georgia mountains. Your KOA hosts know how to help you relax-they’ve been doing this for 25 years! Unwind by the fishing pond. Glide on the porch swing of a Kamping Kabin. Join in the summertime Saturday night ice cream social. Your pooch will enjoy camping here-pets are allowed in Kamping Kabins.

Located between Chattanooga and Atlanta, the Calhoun KOA makes a great overnight stop. But stick around to explore the many area attractions such as the New Echota Historic Site. Marking the capital of the Cherokee Nation, its museum showcases their way of life. Barnsley Gardens features 30 acres of exquisite plantings on the grounds of an old English-style manor.

Pet Policy

1. Aggressive dogs of any breed are not welcome at any KOA. If your dog shows behavior that is protective and unfriendly to strangers, please leave it home. If you decide to bring your dog and it exhibits this type of behavior the owner or management of the KOA will ask you to please find other camping accommodations. KOA Kampgrounds are individually owned and operated and some campgrounds may have policies against accepting certain breeds that have been identified by our major insurance provider as having a history of unfriendly and aggressive behavior to both other dogs and to humans. These breeds are Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes, Rottweilers and Dobermans. 2. Pet rules unique to the location will be addressed at time of reservation or registration. We encourage all dog owners to call in advance to inquire about any specific rules that might apply to their situation. Some KOA Kampgrounds do not allow pets in their Kamping Kabins or have limited availability of pet units for rent. Please call in inquire about availability for you and your pet. 3. All dogs are required to be under the control and visual observation of their owner at all times. A 6’ (six foot) leash rule is in effect whenever the animal is outside the owner’s camping trailer, vehicle, kabin, or motorhome. No dog should be left tied up and unattended outside the owner’s camping equipment. 4. Allowing your pet to bark uncontrollably day or night will not be permitted and you may be asked to leave if you are not able to control your pet’s barking behavior. 5. Service dogs of any breed are welcome at all KOA Kampgrounds. However, these animals must follow leash restraint policies and may not exhibit aggressive behavior.

Needs a good cleaning

Date:

September 26, 2011

The wife and I camped here for three nights with a larger group of RV'ers....our site was on the very soggy back loop and only had 30amp - no sewer or water hookup available - for a discount rate was $33/night. The grass-only site did not have a fire ring or picnic table when we arrived, but both were promptly delivered when requested - there was a very courteous, young staff assisting the evening we checked in and they also brought us warm cookies after we had settled. We were within "smell"-range of a four-to-five horse corral that was very unpleasant when the winds were calm. The bathroom on the rear loop was never cleaned in the three days we were there, and a lack of sidewalks or gravel driveways only promoted a constant layer of pine straw and leaves on the bathroom floor. The bathrooms were also up on a 15-foot incline, not suitable for older campers...the railroad tie steps were super slick when wet. The new "rally center" was our hub of activities and featured a full kitchen, screen and projector and plenty of seating for probably 65 people. There was a large fire ring outside that was used by the group both nights, as well as a very large BBQ/smoker rig available to all campsite users. Since we had brought in over twenty RV units for camping -almost 55 people total- the campground hosts provided a dinner on Saturday night for the group. The meal consisted of one helping of pork barbecue or a charred/burned chicken leg quarter, a choice of two sides (grocery store potato salad, cole slaw or pork-n-beans) and a slice of white bread. Some folks managed to get a second round of side dishes, but not everyone. Dessert was budget ice cream with canned toppings. The campground had a nice pool & game room, a miniature golf course, a very small pond (catch and release only) as well as a petting zoo that featured goats, pigs and very loud peacocks. The location was convenient to a grocery store and several restaurants. Overall, the place simply needed a good cleaning and some T.L.C. in order to become an above-average KOA site. Hospitality was a solid "A", but the site condition came it at a "C-" at best.
