6 Reviews of Sandy Bottoms Campground
Closed early

This looked like a great campsite! The website said it closed October 31st. Unfortunately, it was closed early this year for some reason.

Go to place

Right on the river! Tubing, fly fishing, and bathroom access. Only downfall is people fly down that road at all hours.

Great Family Campground

Busy during the summer months, but probably the least busiest out of the three campgrounds in the Tallulah River. Stays cool down there by the river. There’s a swimming hole and a rope to jump off a rock. Nice place in the fall to relax whenever you want to get away. The camp sites are far enough away from each other to get some privacy

Angler’s dream

This was a beautiful campground that had tons of camp spots right in the river and near the river. They had just stocked the river with trout and we caught a total of 32 fish divided among our group of 11 people. PLENTY of great fishing and swimming spots


Drive up campsites with picnic table, fire ring, and bathroom right beside the river. Great Trout fishing. The campsite runs along a dirt road.
