Anthony Galluscio Vogel State Park Camping Review

This review covers our most recent camping trip to Vogel State Park.

  • Campground: Vogel State Park

  • Nights Camping: 5 (July 8 to 13, 2017)

  • Nearest City:  Blairsville, GA

  • Space Number:  34

  • Hookups:  Water/Electric/No Sewer

  • Cost per Night:  $32

  • Likes:  Our spot was very private and next to a babbling creek. There were very few bugs and infrequent rain. The temperatures were in the 70s and 80s during the day and down in the 60s at night. Very clean with campsites well maintained. Absolutely stunning scenery!

  • Dislikes:  First-come-first-serve check in process is not really fair to out-of-state campers with no local knowledge. The dump stations are not very sanitary because there are constant puddles around the drains and the hoses are not elevated off the ground.

  • Notes:  There is a big lake for canoeing and fishing. The hike around the lake is about one mile. There are many wonderful excursions accessible directly from Vogel State Park including the Byron Herbert Reece Nature Trail, The Bear Hair Gap Trail, and the hike to the top of Blood Mountain on the Appalachian Trail. Within a short drive there is Helton Creek Falls. Blairsville, GA is a nice little town with places to eat. Bobby and Kathleen, Katie and Miguel, and Charlie all joined us for this vacation (Stevie was working). Kourtney, Tyler, and Ansleigh (our neice, nephew, and great neice) came to see us from Clemson one afternoon. We had a blast!
