Located in the North Georgia Mountains, and far from civilization, lies one of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest’s most beloved horse-lover hideaways: Willis Knob Campground. The campground features camping for horseback riders, riding and hiking trails, and fishing in the nearby Chattooga River. Restrooms are accessible to people with disabilities. The Willis Knob Trail in Georgia combines with South Carolina's Whetstone Horse Trail to offer 27.5 miles of the most scenic horseback riding and hiking in the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains. Winding across deeply dissected ridges, the trails descend into the beautiful Chattooga Wild and Scenic River.
