We prefer less "roughing it", but not a "children's playground" either. Thanks for any advice you might have.

I know you are asking about Lake Hartwell campgrounds in Ga. I've not been to the GA. COE(corp of engineers) campgrounds since high school but I'm sure they have been updated as SC has. I can tell you about the COE campgrounds in SC. Twin Lakes
is our fav. large park mostly private sites several new bathhouses childrens playgrounds are designated and also has designated beach area for kids. Beautiful part of lake hartwell and upstate SC. Twin Lakes is about 20 minutes off I85. Springfield
campground is just as nice and is comparable to the above description of twin lakes It is also about 20 mins off I85. Coneross
is a little smaller and I've not camped there in over 20 years but have rode by in my boat several times in the past few years and noticed new bathhouse as well. it is about 20 mins off I85. Oconee Point
was rated as a top 100 campground and we have never stayed there so I'm not sure why. Been by it by boat also and looks a lot like Twin Lakes. 30 mins off I85 Lake Hartwell
State Park is about 5 mins off I85 but would only consider it for a quick overnite on my way somewhere else. Same with KOA about 2 mins off I85. If you are camping with a boat you can PM me and I can share more info. Also most sites at all of these campgrounds do not have sewer hookup but do have dump stations. Not sure about KOA.
