  • So we get to the State park and they assign us a site , Unlike every other state park I have been to we got to pick our spot, They have over 130 camp sites that are empty. The after we set up camp we ...  read more »
  • As far as state parks go, this wasn't bad. We went camping over the Fourth of July weekend. Had some issues with neighboring campers using generators all night with bright lights and up all night unti...  read more »
  • We had a great time. We were looking for a quick weekend camping getaway. We decided to try Fairfield State Park and were very pleased. We camped in our RV in the Cooks Ferry Loop and saw lots of wild...  read more »
  • This park is amazing, same as it was 25 years ago when I went there with my family. To the guy complaining about wifi man it's camping! Unplug your family from their smart phones and internet and let them experience what u did there as a child. The park hasn't changed, you have.
  • I was there 35 years ago when I was a kid. Wide open, cleared, and my dad and I caught at least 50 crappie one morning. It was great then, not today in 2016. I took my own family w/ 3 kids there this memorial weekend in 2016. Booked 2 nights, ended up staying only 1 as we were disappointed. Cumulative list of reasons not go to there. There is only limited spots for bank fishing due to cattails. Day campers completely overran the place yesterday and my kids couldn't even find a decent spot to throw out a line. Did I say day campers completely overran the place and I mean overran it.... I saw a couple people trying to fish next to swimming. Majority of campsites have no easy access to lake. Ours didn't and a ranger told my son about a trail but it cut through someone else's site. My kids not being able to fish was the biggest disappointment. You need a boat if you are going there. The other list of issues someone needs to know before going include: park office closes at 4:30 pm and its a small office w/ no supplies, there are no bait shops nearby except back in town, firewood is overpriced at $11.99 large bundle, $6 small bundle, and no internet access. Yes, they have w WIFI at the park office and supposedly couple other spots in park but we never could hold a signal. My wife said she once got 2 bars at the cemetery which is on premise. I stepped into the park office trying to get a strong enough signal and couldn't. I tried making a call from my Samsung w/ ATT service while standing at the park office ice machine and got message saying emergency calls only (not sure what you'd do if a real emergency occurred during night). I asked park office and was told only IPhones work there (my wife's nor my daughter's IPhone's didn't).. I've stayed at hundreds of parks over the years in both RVs and tents and this one was a sad disappointment for what our parks have become.
  • A very nice park. I had a campsite on the water's edge. A very spacious lot to camp on. Beautiful sunset off this lake most of the time. Other campers were friendly. Park Staff were very professional and helpful. I will be happy to come back to Fairfield again.
  • Wi-Fi don't work ...
  • The park is a awesome place to take your family to camp and fish I recommend it to the world .
