Hales Landing COE, GA

 hales landing01

Hales Landing COE Park is located about 6 miles southwest of Bainbridge, GA, in the area where the Flint River joins Lake Seminole. It is a small park which is a favorite spot for fishermen. Lake Seminole is a large reservoir on the Florida-Georgia border. The Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers flow into the lake and the Apalachicola River begins at the Jim Woodruff Lock and Dam, flowing from there to the Gulf of Mexico.

Since this is a first-come/first-served campground we intentionally planned to arrive early. We figured that being a Sunday folks would be leaving, and sure enough, that was the case. Even some of the prime water-front sites were available. We chose site 3 and after walking up to the Iron Ranger to pay, we sat down to lunch. Our timing was good weather-wise, for shortly after lunch it began to rain. I managed to make my rounds for taking these pictures before the rain settled in for good.

Date of visit: March 2015

This shows how sites are angled and fairly well separated. Site 2 is in the foreground, with our rig on 3.

There are 7 water-front sites; these are sites 4-6.

Each of the water-front sites has a very nice fenced patio, a pleasant place to sit and relax. Some folks bring boats with them and after launching them, they can tie up along the shore right by their site.

Sites 7-9 are three parallel sites, slightly staggered so that rigs are not right beside each other.

Sites 11-13 are at the edge of the woods across from a grassy area.

If you are looking for a little privacy, site 10 might suit you. as it is off by itself a bit.

Site 1 is the designated handicapped site, located near the bathhouse.

The bathhouse is modern with free hot showers. It has an interesting all-stainless steel interior, even the walls, making it easier to keep clean.

Close to the campground is a day-use area with a boat launching ramp. It's also a pleasant spot to sit and see if you catch any fish.
