Amicalola Falls State Park and Lodge

Added by camprate admin

1 review

t’s easy to see why this is one of Georgia’s most popular state parks. Amicalola, a Cherokee Indian word meaning “tumbling waters,” is an appropriate name for these 729-foot falls — the tallest east of the Mississippi River. An eight-mile approach trail leads from the park to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the 2,135-mile Appalachian Trail. However, numerous other trails are available for shorter journeys. A beautiful lodge is popular with guests who prefer hotel-type comforts over cottages and camping, while a 5-mile hike leads to more remote accommodations at the Len Foote Hike Inn. Be sure to stop by the park office to see nature displays, live exhibits and a gift shop.

Summary:

Beautiful park but campground is like camping in a neighborhood.

I would never return to this campground as it is. The individual sites are entirely geared to monster RVs, with huge gravel pads formed by massive wood retaining walls. Sites are crowded together and some have almost no shade. Tent campers are subjected to constant noise from air conditioners.

The worst aspect of the campground is that there is a group site right in the middle of the individual sites. A lighted pavilion encourages noise late into the night and on the weekend I was camping the dozen or so kids in the group site were shrieking at full voice by 6 a.m. The park really needs a separate tent-only loop with a more natural landscape.

The park itself is beautiful with good trails and dramatic scenery.
