Eastbank COE Campground – Bainbridge GA

by | Sep 25, 2019

Our campground travel formula is pretty simple. We have a budget we need to manage for each trip since we may be on the road for over three months at a time. On this trip, we started off with a splurge that was at the top of our expense list which meant we had to find campgrounds that would be less costly going forward. This can be a bit of a challenge since low cost doesn’t always equate with nice campgrounds. Well the latter certainly wasn’t the case for Eastbank Core of Engineer Campground located next to Chattahoochee, FL and Bainbridge, GA. This campsite is an absolute jewel.

The Local Area

We needed some down time. Over a short period, we had traveled a number of miles and toured some really interesting places. Joan and I wanted to just take it easy for a few days. Leaving the Georgia cost heading to Alabama, we needed to find a stop for a few days in the middle of our route. I’ve looked online at Eastbank COE campground for several years, but the opportunity never existed for us to book a stay. We didn’t expect much, located in a very rural location with the closest shopping for basic grocery needs provided by a Dollar Store. We thought this will be OK for a few nights. We’ll just rest and move on. Wow! Were we wrong! This was a fantastic campground with great camping sites topped off with amazing views of Lake Seminole.

The Campground

Eastbank COE campground mapThe campground has 67 sites, 65 with electric and water hookup and many supporting 50 amps. There’s a very nice bathhouse with laundry facilities, dump station on the way out of the campground, boat ramp and picnic sites. Lake Seminole is massive with a surface area of 37,500 acres of water and 376 miles of shore. From the campground, most sites have views of the lake that are stunning. The sites have a substantial amount of green space between the campers, all the roads are paved and the camping sites are either crush gravel or paved concrete. Click the map on the right for site availability.

While the area is limited for touring spots and places of interest, the campground does offer public access to the dam. This was a great place to walk and see this marvel of engineering.

This is a beautiful campground, huge sites, fantastic views, off the beaten path, quite, relaxing, just the prescription for Joan and me after a busy month of travel.
