The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest offers many different types of camping experiences, including those termed “developed” and “dispersed.”  Campgrounds are called developed when they have at least a few amenities (e.g. parking areas, entrance signs, picnic tables, grills, trash receptacles and vault toilets). 

More highly developed sites may also include showers, electricity, flush toilets, sewer, and water. Reservations may be required in some campgrounds. Reservations can be made online or call 1-877-444-6777 (toll free).Link to for easy reservations by the public.

For those who prefer solitude and privacy, undeveloped or “dispersed” camping is allowed in most places within the forest boundary. Dispersed camping is more primitive than in developed campgrounds, with few or no facilities. You will need to Pack-it-in and Pack-it-Out.

To ensure your safety and enjoyment, certain rules, regulations and orders are enforced within Forest boundaries.  There are general rules which apply to National Forest land, in addition to more stringent rules which apply to developed recreation sites.
