Whitehead Landing

Area Status: Open

An entrance to a forest with a sign in the middle.

Whitehead Landing is a small campground and day-use area on a tributary to the Ochlockonee River. The river may be accessed by boat from the concrete boat ramp. Campers can select campsites under the trees.


  • The access road to the boat ramp is frequently underwater, making the boat ramp inaccessible.
  • Small motorboats can take advantage of the excellent fishing on the Ochlockonee by boat launches (called landings) at SR 20, Pine Creek, Revell Landing, Mack Landing, Hitchcock Lake and Wood Lake. Canoes and kayaks may also launch from these sites.


  • Each campsite has a picnic table, grill and fire ring. No showers or hookups.
