Nature's peace and quiet attract many to this 29-site campground. Visitors have access to flush toilets, warm showers, and a dump station (no hook ups). Each season, many regulars who like to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life enjoy this area.
Surrounding Area: Enjoy your afternoons visiting the nearby Chattooga River Picnic Area, Walhalla State Fish Hatchery or Ellicott Rock Wilderness Area. Hike part of the Foothills Trail or take a 30-minute drive northeast to Whitewater Falls, the highest waterfall in the east. Get your exercise by riding a paddle boat on a mountain lake found at Oconee State Park, a few minutes south of the campground. A small park store meets some camper’s supply needs.
