Dames Ferry Campground #32

Park: Small and tucked away in the woods. Some tight spots, but only a few werent on or near the water. It seemed like all of them had a view of the water. Juliette is the place of the Fried Green Tomatoes movie, but sorry, we did not check out any of the touristy spots.

Campground: Getting there was a little curvy and woodsy. Some private homes and farms. We did have a scary moment we we came up on an escaped cow. That is not something you see every day. She was just chilling. But the owners were already there trying to coax her back home. What I loved most was the cowboy kid on a four wheeler, instead of a horse. Guess that’s the “new” wrangler. 🤣

The campground itself was small and clean. It looked like every site was full but it did not feel overcrowded like Tugaloo. Not sure why, it just didn’t. I did notice there were a couple of campsites that were no longer sites. I’m guessing because they were small, or very close to the road. Their pull-throughs looked like they were barely off the road.

Lake Juliette was gorgeous 😍. It was large, and clear. There was barely any boat traffic, but we were fairly close to the dam I think.

Amenities: Pretty standard. Bathhouse, water, electric. Did not notice cable, but wi fi was decent enough. 👌

Privacy: Um, none really. We were not packed in like sardines, but with each site trying to get a Lakeview, there was some overlap.

Dump Station: Just your standard dump station with a rinse hose. It was in good shape so no complaints.

Level-ness: I dont remember.

Condition: clean.

Maneuvering: When we checked in, the host directed us to our spot because there was really only one way in due to a rogue pine tree. We are thankful he did, because we would have not been able to make the other turn.

Small living space beyond parking pad #32

Bonus: it’s a small campground, with a limited number of sites that are on the smaller size.

Cons: Getting there for us, requires driving across Atlanta and going south on Hwy 75. There is ALWAYS traffic, going both directions , always some construction and bunches up at Mcdonough. And apparently there are some maneuvering issues with getting in. Our camper is 32ft, so I imagine bigger rigs would have some challenges.

All in all, we like it. And we are going back, this year and will have different sites so I will let you know.

Thank you!
