This campground was great! It was very clean and well maintained. Although the dirt road that led to the campground was a bit sketchy if you're not use to mountain driving, it is very well maintained as well. The fishing was great too. This was my first time trout fishing in North Georgia but I was able to catch plenty of trout. I highly recommend this campground for those looking for some seclusion.

Adventure Friendly

Fun place to camp, especially if you want to get away. Primitive-no running water in winter so pack that in. Fire pits have a swivel grill, ideal to cook with the cast iron over the fire. There's a local store a couple minutes away. Rainbow trout right at the site. We drove up from Florida with a bunch of people that had never trout or fly-fished before. Everyone ended up catching fish and having a great time. When you're not exploring the creek, there's plenty of hiking trails to adventure as well!

Camping on the Creek

With a campsite right on the creek you can’t really go wrong the camp hosts were as sweet as can be

Hidden Gem for Trout Enthusiasts

Located in the Chatahoochee National Forest, this campground is primitive, but there are outhouses.  The creek is very peaceful and well stocked with trout, along with some natives, but mostly stocked fish.  Most of the camp sites are along the creek which makes this a great place to stay.  It is first come, first served, so I suggest on any busy weekend, that you arrive on Thursday.

Love this place. So many amazing trails to hike. Great for fishing! There are limited stores around so make sure you come prepared before you settle in.

I just love this area. The camping spots are spacious and everyone has easy access to the creeks. Lots of trails/hiking to do not only in the campground area but all around (such as Toccoa River, Appalachian Trail and several waterfalls) The waters have both wild and stocked trout so fishing here is always fun. I highly recommend this campground.
