I used the boat ramp as a put-in for my kayaks during a family outing. It's a real bare bones type of facility. The location is pretty once you get on the water.

A great place for the whole family to get outdoors and get some exercise or reconnect with nature or each other.

Food and service highly variable - excellent some days and barely passing for mediocre on others. That said, I'll keep visiting because the good days are really good.

A little slow (small crowd, not the service) when I was there, but that just made it easier to get the bartender"s attention. Friendly and festive atmosphere - typical bar with better than average beer selection and bartenders.

The wings are excellent, and I'm very picky about wings. Also, when there's live music, this place is a lot of fun. Best night life spot in Dahlonega.

I absolutely love Vogel State Park! Although it's one of the more heavily used parks in northern Georgia, the campsites, trails, and facilities are in good condition. The cabins are nice, the camper hookups are all in good condition, the bathrooms get cleaned regularly, and the trails are great, considering the amount of traffic they get. The beach area is fun, and my kids really enjoy it. Also, on our last visit, my son and I toured the small CCC Museum that is here and we were quite impressed.
