RV Park Review: Eastbank, Lake Seminole, GA

This one is brought to you by the “looks can be deceiving” department. We stayed at the Eastbank campground, maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers, in August 2019. We made reservations for three nights, but ended up leaving after one. On the way up, there were some steep grades, and a lot of trees that were still recovering from last year’s Hurricane Michael.
