Hidden gems situated in Lincoln Country, Georgia are the three secluded campgrounds that can be found along the shoreline of Clark's Hill Lake, including Georgia Freshwater Campground at Hester's Ferry. All three campgrounds provide guests with the opportunity to stay on a waterfront site, where you'll have unlimited access to the lake.
Dogs are permitted at all of Georgia Freshwater Campgrounds, including Hester's Ferry. The only rules for your pooch include tidying up any mess they make and keeping them on a leash at all times. If a dog’s behavior is deemed aggressive by the staff working at the campground, they can be asked to leave. Ensure you maintain control over your pooch during your stay.
Although there’s a limited number of campsites (only 26) at Hester's Ferry, each campsite is spacious, wooded, and distanced from its neighbor, so guests can enjoy privacy. The trees and brush between the campsites make your stay truly feel secluded. Some campsites are primitive with no hookups and are perfect for those looking for an authentic camping experience. Other sites are newly updated and come with both water and electric hookups. No sites with sewage are offered at Hester's Ferry. All campsites are located right on the water, making morning sunrises a remarkable sight. Primitive sites start as low as $15 per night.
Hester's Ferry is also fortunately located right at the confluence of Fishing Creek and the lake, making it an optimal fishing zone. Anglers will enjoy the abundance of fish. Other activities on the lake include boating and, of course, water sports and swimming. As the lake is private, this campground, like its sister campgrounds, is ideal for exploring the scenic outdoors of Georgia.
The next time you're looking to camp in Georgia, remember J. Strom Thurmond Lake and the hidden treasures found along its shores. You and your pooch have an opportunity to get back to nature while enjoying the modern perks and amenities of the campground.
