We booked Cottage #7, (accessible cottage) for a Fall Foliage Getaway, and to see dear friends nearby. They were the ones who recommended this beautiful state park. Check-in and front desk personnel were friendly and accommodating. The wild, natural environment suited us to a "TEE" with deer grazing in the meadows, and a beautiful lake setting, right behind our cottage. It was clean, well equipped with everything we needed (except food) for our 4 day stay. The cottages were all separate from each other, not crowded together - making for privacy - Ours was a 2 bedroom, 1 bath, with large living room, and large kitchen. Plenty of room to spread out, and No Pets and No Smoking, which made for a pleasant experience. There were a few things that we had to mention to the front desk that needed attention (kitchen faucet leaked/dripped constantly, shower drain clogged, freezer of refrigerator smelled bad, and shower controls were hard to get adjusted). All in all, however, we would stay here again, when we are in this area again. Lake is right at the back door, so we were ready to drop a line, but turned out too cold and rainy.

Stayed 3 of our 4 reserved nights in # 56 - the last waterfront one on that leg of the loop. A little tight with trees but doable with our small TT. Campground filled on Halloween weekend and many were very cutely decorated. Bath house near us was older and fairly clean - and heated !! On check in day we had only come 27 miles from Mistletoe and had left there early due to a nasty incoming storm which wound up mostly staying south. At any rate the sweet staff at EC let us move in early - esp since our site was empty the previous night. Weather was chilly and drizzly 3 of our 4 days - final day was sunny but windy and cold so us wimpy Floridians bugged out a day early.

We rented cabin #1 at Elijah Clark State Park. The screened-in porch faces the water and sunrise (cabins 1-10 face sunrise, cabins 15-20 face sunset. Not sure about cabins 11-14). Great boating and good hiking trails. No biking trails. We launched our kayak in front of our cabin, but if the water levels were any lower it'd be difficult (plenty of boat launches around). Turkeys and deer passed near our cabin. Inside the cabin was clean with the exception of kitchen supplies/dishes/pans (responsibility of the renters to clean them). Overall the park was pretty quiet for a weekend.

Great place to set up home for a long weekend or even along vacation. Lake is clean with great fishing. There are lake front sites and non lake sites. Bath houses are always clean and stocked.

The kids loved to go to the volleyball court and the beach area.

A good tent experience, not great. The walk in tent sites are good. #’s 1-4 are on the water and are great. Sites 5-10 are marginal at best. They are small and somewhat sloped towards the water. I was camping in #1 and it rocked! It was flat and right next to the water. No TP in bathroom:(

We really loved our trip here. Never used the facilities but heard they were clean and not jenky. We had campsite 5 on Campground 1 as reservation woman told us Campground 1 was a bit nicer than Campground 2. The campsites are fairly close to each other but it didn't bother us at all. I would recommend a site in one of the coves as the wind can get strong on the open peninsula. We swam and fished just steps from our campsite. They do have a putt-putt golf course there but it's in kinda rough shape. TIP: Look up The Golf Cart Lady either online or when you are there and rent a golf cart to tool around the campground and don't want to bike to the beach, mini golf, reception lodge, etc. Was about $100 per day but well worth it and she delivers it right to your camp site. Overall, it was a wonderful stay.

This review is based solely on the WALK-IN TENT SITES.

We have visited other GA state parks and their walk-in sites and there is ample distance between sites, they're private, they're off along a trail in a beautiful setting in the wilderness (even if it's only a quarter mile or so from the parking lot). This is NOT that setting.

The walk-in tent area appears to be a converted picnic area - heck, there is STILL a picnic shelter and picnic tables intermixed in the camping area. To create "sites" they added tent pads & fire rings to picnic table settings. They are spaced about 25 yards apart. There are sparse tall trees with the limbs pruned all the way up - there are no shrubs and zero privacy between sites or picnic area.

We didn't stay and won't be back.

Recently enjoyed a tour and day trip to Elijah Clarke State Park. Friendly staff, beautiful park and a small historic site made for a pleasant day with friends.

Second time here! Came last fall and fell in love with the park. We stayed in campground 2 on the water in our RV. The park has water and electric hookups, there’s a bathroom with a washer and dryer as well. The views can’t even be real...simply a gorgeous place in the fall to unwind and relax. The leaves are changing, people are boating, kayaking and just enjoying nature.

This park has tons of things to do. Lakeside activities feature everything from picnicking to swimming to boat rentals. Trails crisscross the entire park with one amazing view after another. There is even miniature golf! The park is named after a revolutionary war leader and a cottage was recreated to simulate his residence - nice hardwood paneling poked periodically with rifle slots. One can do this for days, tents sites and even cottages await your visit.
