10/1/2012 Petersburg COE Campground, Appling, GA Site 52

Site 52
Petersburg Campground is a beautiful COE Park on J. Strom Thurmond Lake in Georgia just 4 miles from the Thurmond Dam and Visitor Center.

Our site was a long, very wide waterfront gravel back in site with picnic table, fire ring, and lantern hook. We had water and electric at the site. The dump station is conveniently located on the way out of the campground. Our campsite had steps down to the lake and we had a nice view of the lake from our site.

There are two boat ramps and a swimming beach in the park. AT&T cell service worked fine and we were able to get DirecTV Satellite. The park is located a few miles off of I-20 and is easy to get to. There are restaurants and shopping including 2 Walmarts within easy driving distance. It's not too far from Augusta. It's a short drive to Harlem, GA, the birthplace of Oliver Hardy where there is an interesting Laurel and Hardy Museum.

Would we return? YES!
