We had two weeks booked here beginning 3 June. Unfortunately, we left without staying because the sites in the section we were assigned to (section 4) were infested with ants .... teeming with them. The campers in the neighboring site indicated that the ants were getting into their trailer and truck. If you go, be prepared with ant spray and bait. We were prepared, but the area to be sprayed was too big ... work more suitable for a maintenance crew with a commercial sprayer. I don't know if every section has a problem, but the other sites that were offered to us as alternatives were too small, so it was a moot point. They refunded our camping fee, but would not allow us to boondock for a night in the oversized parking lot across from the lodge (it was around 6:30p by then) while we tried to make alternative plans. We drove 20 miles to Grovetown and overnighted in the Wal-Mart parking lot instead before moving on to a private RV park the next day. The young woman at the Whispering Pines Lodge at Pointes West where campers check in was very nice, and she understood why we opted to leave. They even ran out with the mail we had forwarded here, which arrived just as we were leaving. For that, they get 4 stars for hospitality. The four stars for location is based on the site we would have stayed in (had the ants not interfered) as it overlooked the lake. The 1 star for amenities is because we didn't use any of them and can't rate them. Would have been good value for the money had we been able to stay. They could also use better signage to the lodge for first-time visitors ... if you go, continue towards the boat ramp/picnic area and not towards the campground to register. If there was a sign for Whispering Pines, we missed it.
