Mistletoe State Park Appling, Georgia

Located on 72,000-acre Clarks Hill Lake near Augusta, this park is known as one of the finest bass fishing spots in the nation. Georgia’s largest reservoir is located in the town of Appling. There are three boat ramps as well as a sandy beach and playground. During the summer, guests can cool down at the beach and enjoy the beautiful water of the lake.

The 15+ miles of shaded nature trails for hiking and biking range from moderate to difficult. A wildlife observation area is available. The park has 10 fully equipped cottages on the lake, five of which are log cabins. A one-room camper cabin faces the lake, offering a porch with rocking chairs and four bed platforms. The campground has 84 tent/trailer/RV sites and is situated on a peninsula, offering spectacular views of both sunset and sunrise over the open water.

Our campsite was gorgeous with panoramic views of the lake. Most of the campsites are lakefront with some set back into the trees. There is a pioneer camping area as well as several walk-in tent camping sites. We experienced some high winds as our site was semi unprotected but the view was spectacular!
