Cartersville was our first stopover coming into Georgia. It tended towards being unremarkable as KOAs go, but the price is decent enough to recommend it.

Cartersville is an RV park that checks off all the basics you want from a park without standing out as being exceptional or poor. Everything about our parking spot was satisfactory. The lots are gravel, level, and reasonably sized. The hook ups all worked just fine. They have both free Cable and Wireless internet, which is a very nice change from Florida where they tend to charge extra for both.
The most remarkable think about Cartersville KOA are the bathrooms. They are amply sized for the park and feature fairly new fixtures. The shower and toilet stalls are on the small side, but manageable. But the decor… oh my lord the decor. Someone decided to paint them in the KOA colors which means screaming yellow walls with fire engine red trim. It is both garish and ugly. Topping things off they painted all the stalls black with popcorn texturing. It’s like if Ronald McDonald ran a fly by night dance club. None of that really matters for this review, but it is far and away the most memorable aspect of this park. I suspect it is where sinful interior designers are sent for eternal torment.
The rest of the park is fine. It is located in the Georgia forests which are plush and lovely. There are quite a few trees in the park proper and there are some large laws for play or taking the dogs for a walk. Considering the price, which is good for a KOA, I’d give this park a mild recommendation as a decent but unremarkable place to camp.
