Great place to go. I camped there about 2 months ago and had a great time. Lots to do around there and if you have a canoe bring it! I rate it in the top 5 of places I have been camping.

As campgrounds go I guess it's okay. I see you have family. That makes a difference. Me, I camp by myself with a dog. Tent in the National Forest somewhere. To me camping is getting out away from it all, not being right next to a hundred other people. Hope y'all have a great time....really!

Hawg Daddy,

I live about 5 miles north of VSP, :fine: and do some camping/hiking there regularly with our Scouts and family....what is it you want to know about the place?


BTW, if your trying to get *away* from your flatland neighbors.....uh....the N. GA Mountains might not be the best choice. :rofl: Just sayin.......

Beautiful SP in my opinion. I have not been in a while due to there being limited camp sites for large RV's. It is a great place for pop ups and shorter RV's.

You won't be far from Lake Winfield Scott, take a ride over and check it out. A little more seclusion and really pretty nice. (no electricity)

Also you might try Trackrock Campground just north of Vogel. Nice place for a private CG.

N Fl? Mebbe your OK then. :)

They have a site available before & after, just not on T-Day? Who camps out just one day..and on T-Day to boot?

Send me a PM with what kind of site your trying to reserve and I'll use one of my lifelines and phone a friend. Can't hurt.

Trackrock is awesome as well. I have bigger strings to pull there than at Vogel. http://www.trackrock.com/

I'll be there the middle of Dec with my boys and our Boy Scout Troop doing the Horsemanship Merit Badge.

Yeah the hiking trails are awesome this time of year. Bear Hair and The Coosa Trail up to Blood Mountain are the best. I have probably climbed the Coosa for the last time.:cry: Heart trouble and age have caught up with me.

I use to work as a ranger at Vogel, very nice management. LOL.

-Old, and huge, American Chestnut stumps on the bear hair trail. You can go to blood mountain from the park.

- a little waterfall on site.

-clean lake water

-some fish

-cool temps in summer


Picture is a summer program for children in Wolf Creek that runs through Vogel State Park. They also have a kids fishing rodeo in the summer for the kids. Sorry, no adults allowed until the kids have caught all the trout.

-great for a family
