Area Status: Open
Located within the Chattahoochee Wildlife Management Area and veiled by the Mark Trail Wilderness, this 13-site developed campground is as close as it gets to a dispersed camping experience with amenities. This clandestine campground is best known for its plethora of opportunities in camping, fishing, hiking, hunting, and simply basking in the light of the natural world. Low Gap is another one of our campgrounds located only a few miles from Georgia's much loved vacation destination, the alpine village of Helen, Georgia. A trip to this campground is sure to make memories, so be sure to pack a camera and take some home with you on film!
