The drive up through the winding misty roads of North Georgia leading to this 34-site, developed campground is almost as breath-taking as the site itself. Although the drive leaves one feeling as if civilization has been left far, far behind, the ever popular and beloved alpine village of Helen, Georgia is less than a half hour away. Camping here, visitors can enjoy the pleasure of Georgia’s number one vacation spot with shopping, dining, and entertainment in the city of Helen and recreational activities such as camping, hiking, biking, and fishing in the campground. Visitors should keep an eye out for the interpretive information available on the Chattahoochee River Watershed and how the river affects water usage for Georgia, Alabama, and Florida, posted upon entering the campground area.
