Overview

Cotton Hill Campground is situated on the shores of Walter F. George Lake on the Georgia and Alabama border. The lake is a great place to get away for a week, a weekend or just an afternoon.

Boating, swimming, fishing and camping are popular activities.

Natural Features:

Walter F. George Lake, sometimes called Lake Eufaula, stretches 85 miles up the Chattahoochee River. Visitors come to relax and play among the natural beauty of the area.

The lands surrounding the lake are forested with dense stands of mixed hardwoods. A wide variety of wildlife is commonly seen, including waterfowl, deer, squirrels, rabbits, eagles, hawks, bobcats and dozens of species of songbirds.

Recreation:

The Chattahoochie River lakes are an angler's paradise, where largemouth bass, white bass, hybrids, crappie, channel catfish and bream are found. The lake's 640 miles of shoreline offer many excellent locations for bank fishing, and a boat ramp is conveniently located nearby.

The lake and its surrounding forests provide a great locale for hiking, hunting or simply observing wildlife.

Facilities:

The campground offers 91 sites with full hookups for electric, water and sewage.

Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water, laundry facilities, a dump station, boat ramp and fish cleaning station. Younger campers love the park's two playgrounds. A group picnic shelter is available on a first come, first served basis.

Nearby Attractions:

The historic towns of Eufaula, Alabama and Cuthbert, Georgia are nearby. Eufaula boasts more than 20 structures and districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Beautiful antebellum mansions are located throughout both towns.
