Our last stop before our Florida destination was the Koa in Forsyth Georgia. They were located right off I75. Check-in was the normal Koa friendliness you would expect. We had a reservation for 1 night with a full hook up site, so check-in was quick. One thing that took us by surprise was that they charged extra for wifi and cable. We wound up paying the $2 extra for the cable and had no problem with it. In their favor, when I went back and looked at the Koa site, there was a “$” covering wifi and cable indicating an extra charge.

Our Site

We were escorted to our site which was a decent size pull through with full hookups. The site was fairly level and while we were setting up they delivered homemade cookies to us. That was a very nice touch. We were nearing the end of 2+ weeks of traveling so we were quite run down. This place had a small snack bar with a limited menu. We ordered the ribs and left to get gas in the truck. The gas station was right up the road so the food was not ready when we returned. They said they would bring it to our site when it was done. They did and the food was actually pretty good.

Booklet

We were there in the off-season and arrived late in the afternoon so none of the amenities were open. In season, they have a pool, bike rentals, and fishing. They also sell propane. You can definitely hear the traffic on I75 but we just closed the windows and put the fan on in the Rv. No more noise. We walked around the grounds and it looked nice enough. The sites looked big enough for most Rv’s. We did not use any of the restrooms or showers but they appeared to be clean.

Ducks In a Row

There is a catch and release pond with a nice swing to sit and relax. Overall, we had no problems here and if we were traveling through the area again we would stop here for a night to rest up.

Update

As I stated in the first review, if we were ever in the area we would stay here again. Well, we just happened to be in the area again.

Instead of our usual google search for a campground on the fly, we knew we were coming through the area and decided to make reservations. It turns out it is a good thing we did. Apparently, it’s a holiday week for the schools and the place was booked solid.

Our site was in the back section this time. The site was a little unlevel but nothing that could not be taken care of with a few leveling blocks. This section is a little further from I-75 so road noise was non-existent. They also no longer charge extra for wi-fi or cable tv. They still give you free homemade cookies when you check in too!!!

They have added a mini-golf section to the park since our last visit. As with the first visit, the restrooms and campground overall were clean. The only issue we had was with our fire. There was a chiminea instead of the normal fire pits. We wanted a fire so we purchased 2 bundles of wood. The office was very accommodating and not only delivers your food (yes, we got the ribs again), they delivered our firewood to the site.

Some of the previous dirt roads were now paved and some were just recently resealed. Due to this, I raised the road condition rating.

The only issue was the firewood pieces were too big for the chiminea. Overall, we had another nice and quiet stay. This campground is older but with a few updates could be a super nice campground.
