General Description: Located along the west shore of the Walter F. George Lake, the Cotton Hills Campground is a Corps of Engineering campground with all the amenities and beautiful locations long the shore of the lake.  The woods surrounding the lake are dense mixed hardwoods and pines and the lake has largemouth bass, white bass, hybrids, crappie, channel catfish and bream.  The campgrounds consist of 91 sites with full hookups located along the lake shore.  Amenities include restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, dump station, and boat ramp.

Impressions:

1) On the map the campsites look like they are closely packed, but there is actually quite a bit of room between the sites.  We had a pull through site located on a small hill overlooking the lake with additional back in sites closer to the lake shore.

2) The bathrooms are modern, clean, and heated.  We were about a quarter mile from the restrooms, but most of the sites are closer.

3) The laundry facilities consisted of a single washer and dryer in a separate small building from the restroom.  It had an electric heater, but it was not working when we were there.  Since the temperatures were just above freezing the day we did laundry, this made it a challenge.  When driving around the campground we noticed another bathroom had laundry facilities between the bathrooms, which probably meant they were heated along with the bathrooms.

4) There is a nature hike around a pond between the campsites and the road into the facilities that is about a mile loop.  The trail is well marked with signposts and had wooden walkways and bridges over the wetter areas.
