  • Well, I have to tell you--in this day of pre-packaged, pre-programmed, and canned offerings, Chattahoochee Bend State Park isn't one of them; it is attended by caring, knowledgeable and competent people. They seem to have their finger on the pulse of the park, and know what is happening in it; it is well-maintained and policed. This is a good place to go, to bring the family, and feel that you have done something good--and to relax. Chattahoochee Bend is a new State Park, and the staff seems dedicated to growing it, and enhancing its stature in the system. I spent a weekend at the Bend at a platform campsite (15' x 15'), and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I brought my children, ages 11, 11, and 17--and they loved it, and want to come back. To bid me goodbye, a Bald Eagle swooped down this morning, chasing a flock of geese. Nice... I give this park 5 out of 5 smiles. :) :) :) :) :)
  • Very large state park within an hour of Atlanta. Far away enough to see plenty of stars at night. Hiking and biking trails; The majority are under cover of canopy trees. On labor day weekend, the trails were not busy, even though campsites seemed full. I noticed all the rv and tent campsites do not have much shade cover during the majority of the day. We stayed in the west platform Campground, which is completely surrounded by trees. Close to the river, but you might not even hear the running waters. The entire park is situated about 6-8' above the river's waterline. At this platform site, there is a 24/7 hum that emanates from a dam/power plant across the river. 8 Platform sites with picnic tables for each. Platforms have approximately 30' between each other. M/F Single occupancy Bathroom and showers are located at the parking lot, which is 100+ yds from the platforms. The campsite path is semi-paved to support a single ada-compliant platform site. In summer months, ticks and chiggers can be a real problem. Take and use a good insect repellant. Keep on the well-marked paths. There is plenty of area that is not served by trails, but be wary of ticks! Hiking and biking are the main attractions. Kayaking and canoeing is available, but the river runs swiftly here; easy to go downstream, but you'll definitely work against current to get back to the ramp. Canoes and kayaks are available at the visitor center, but they do not transport them down to river (a mile+ away) nor provide shuttle service.
  • Great new park. New structures access to water rentals. However, the campsites are all in full sun. I would not recommend camping there in the summer without air conditioning. Decent short hiking and biking trails. B2ware the chiggers!
  • Nice state park. Walking trails and a boat ramp are here. I always drop in at the carrollton hwy bridge and float down to the park, which is a nice 5 hour float!
  • This modern state park with campsites covers nearly 3,000 acres, including hiking trails, primitive campsites and both back-in and pull-through RV sites. We stayed there in late January which is their off-season, so we had our choice of dozens of campsites with electric and water hook-ups. None have sewer or cable TV connections nor access to Wi-Fi, which is only at the Visitor's Center. Our Verizon cellphone reception was spotty and over-the-air TV reception at our site was non-existent. A sanitary dump station is available for emptying waste tanks. Our interactions with the campground hosts and staff were all cordial. RV sites were clean, spacious, mostly level and far enough apart to provide some privacy. Each has a picnic table and fire ring. All of their facilities were modern and well-maintained. There is an attractive visitor center, a Chattahoochee Riverfront boat launch facility and a security gate that closes at 10:00 pm. There are both standard and handicap accessible restrooms and shower facilities that were spotlessly clean. Since this facility is nowhere near highways, railroad tracks or other sources of noise, and there weren't many other campers, we found this campground to be exceptionally quiet. For campers who don't mind driving about a dozen miles off the beaten path to get to this park and who prefer having an "outdoor experience" over being connected with cellphones, Internet and TV, this is a cost-effective way to do it. We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.
