We stayed at the park for a few days while doing some work in Douglas. We were very pleased with the campsites and facilities. The office staff were very helpful with any questions we had, and we woul... read more »
Me and my wife come down to South Georgia and visit her mom and love to go to this park. So beautiful and relaxing, it takes away the stress of living in busy South Florida!
We had a good time staying here, only down side was if you don't have a car the Heritage Farm and fishing lake are so far away from the camping areas that it's not practical to go to. We had our grand... read more »
Stayed here in our 30-ft travel trailer for a couple of days on the way to Daytona beach. Very nice and well maintained. Spacious campsites (and fairly level), and many were quite private. Good nature watching: a large turtle came through our site when we arrived! No swimming allowed in the lakes and creeks, so it might be better as a cool-weather destination (we were there when it was 95-100 degrees). Heritage farm is fun for the kids. Great for a couple of days!
Our Family enjoyed Camping at General Coffee State Park on 24,25, 26 Dec 2015, It was awesome experience, this was our first time tent camping. The staff was very helpful and exceeded all our expectations helping us out from pitching up tent and other basic requirements, with all the detailed information. Specially Mr. Alton provided all the help and we are very great full to him for his tips. We had memorable moments in the camping enjoying Bicycling, Boating, Nature Trails. My kids had great time petting the animals and learning some details about farm. Over all it was a great experience and I would recommend families to visit the park and enjoy the stay.
I love taking the children here. Very peaceful location, the children love visiting the "mini farm".
We've been here a couple times now and loved it. The first time we stayed at the cabins on the far side of the park which were really nice, and the second time we camped in a tent. The entire grounds are really well kept and the employees are really nice and helpful. The ranger station at the front of the park sells a lot of small items that you my might need while there along with ice. The ranger station closes at 5pm, and the gates close around 10pm but there is a code to get in which they will give you when you check in. The campgrounds are first come first serve (so to speak) as there are no reserved spots and you get to pick any vacant site. The bathrooms were really well kept although the spiders seem to like the bathroom as well, so keep an eye out for those. We never had a wait or issue with the hot water on the showers as it seems to be a popular with R/V and campers so there aren't many people using tents, so, not many people need to use the showers either. Keep in mind though, phone service with Sprint and T-mobile is virtually non existent in the area, so you'll be lucky to get a signal. We love this park and will be planning return trips.
I thought this would be a 5 star experience after hiking the trails and seeing the turtles but then I got in my car and realized that I was covered in baby ticks. I stayed on the trails, no venturing off like usual and to my horror I discovered that I had apparently gotten into some ticks. Not a few, a lot. Not just myself, my husband and 4 year old son. There were no warnings about this on the page, sure they said beware of snakes and turtles but not ticks. I'm sure that by now the Georgia State Park employees or someone who lives here must know that there is a huge problem or season with these nasty little bugs. Luckily, I haven't discovered any bites yet but please BEWARE OF TICKS!!
