Cotton Hill Campground

Cotton Hill Campground is an Army Corps of Engineers Campground located on Lake Walter F. George. Lake George is located on the Georgia/Alabama border and has 45,181 acres of water area.  

 The campground has 91 RV sites with full hook-up sites and 10 Tent sites with water & electric. There are 3 sections in the campground; Old Mill Road, Marina View, & Pine Island with each section offering most of the sites on the water and a bathhouse/laundry in each section.   Pine Island seemed as if it would be more geared to families with kids with its playground and a beach for swimming. Old Mill Road section is very shaded and offers lots of sites that allow boaters to dock at their campsite. 

On the afternoon of May 3, 2012, we arrived at Cotton Hill, and were greeted by the friendly office staff.  It wasn’t long before we had our site setup and our Kayaks in the water.


The park has all sorts of wildlife but I found these little guys to be the cutest.

We took the opportunity to do a lot of sightseeing, with our first trip just a few miles up the road to Providence Canyon State Park.  

It was easy going for Ms. Georgia hiking to the bottom of the canyon but the hike back up required several stops for resting, so she didn’t over do it.


Kolomoki Mounds are another great place just a few miles south of Cotton Hill and a neat place to spend the day. 

The visitors center is built inside the burial mound allowing you to see the construction from the inside and also gives you a recreated look at the burial chamber

and display of artifacts


Looking down from the top of the temple mound it is impossible to imagine how this was constructed with the resources available at the time. 

The town of Blakely, GA has a suppressing amount of history to offer its visitors.  

 Tucked away just two blocks from downtown Blakely, is the recreated heritage village overlooking the Chattahoochee River. 

   A walk through the town cemetery   is a  step back in time

 Seeing the row of unknown solders from the Civil War, you wonder how may mother & wives never learned where their love ones were laid to rest.
