Forest Service Campground

One thing I disliked was road noise, other than that nice place.

Peaceful swimming!

Ive been swimming here since I was a little kid I have not been is a while but it is one of the prettiest places on that mountain!!

Breath taking

I camped 4 days with a group of friends at this park. The park is breath taking. Plenty of helpful amentities in the campsite like showers, barhrooms, picnic areas, etc… i was blown away by all the beautiful hiking trails in the area. Would deffinetly vist here again

Awesome Water Fall & By Ravens Cliffs!

Ravens Cliffs is one of my favorite spots in Georgia. Great camping at the base of Ravens cliff and also camping at Desoto Falls. Lots of nice hikes near by. Hike to the top of Ravens cliff and climb the roots to the top!!

5 Star Primitive Campgound

This is a first come first serve primitive campground. They have outhouses and a water pump. The out house is clean and well stocked and surprisingly free of creepy crawlies. The campgrounds are very clean which actually made finding fire wood a little hard. The sights are very private and large, and the camp host were very friendly.

The trails to both falls were very well kept and felt safe. All the bridges and viewing platforms were well taken care of and felt very sturdy. The signage to the dangers were clear and the graffiti was kept to carving names in the wood.

If I had to pick a negative to this sight it would be he how close to the road it was. At night you could hear motorcycle traffic going up the mountain. Will defiantly be back!

Desoto Falls

This campground is beautiful and well maintained and has a lovely host couple. It is right next to the a pretty busy road (129) so you hear the traffic. This was a big turn off for me. I also read before visiting that you could fish…however I was surprised to even see that the water was flowing in some parts considering how small the creek was and all the debris from the woods that was laying in it. There are two waterfalls you can walk to and they are nice, but they aren't that far from the camping area and that is about it as far as trails go. I wouldn't recommend an overnight visit (unless you are just trying to stay around your campsite most of the time), but it's nice for a short day visit. They also have some active black bears which we saw within the first few hours of being there…not a huge deal considering we are in their area…just don't leave Any food out.
