Extending the same primitive feel as its neighboring Warwoman Wildlife Management Area and the Chattooga Wild & Scenic River, Sarah's Creek 26-site developed campground offers a tranquil escape, a place to relax, and perhaps even catch a few fish.
Amazing site. Plenty of spots and space for camping. Some require water and creek crossing. If you’re looking to do some wheeling or off-roading, you’ll have some trails to ride and mountains to climb. The site has no cell service, so be ready for that. You’re truly alone on a mountain. The creek offers places to relax, fish, and even swim.
We didn’t spend the night here but we did pull off into one of the sites to play in the creek for a while after driving on the trails. Nice campgrounds along the creek with a fire ring and grate. Probably best for high clearance vehicles, there are some water crossings and rocky roads. The start of the trail is very steep and narrow. no signal here
Access to the campground is a narrow partially-paved but well-maintained single lane road with only one area to pull over, so be careful when entering and exiting because if you meet another vehicle one of you will be backing back the way you came!
The campground is very clean and well-maintained, with every site having its own fire ring, lantern pole, and at least one picnic table. Trash bins are located near the pit toilets (one at the entrance to the campground and one across the creek deeper in.
Past about site 15 the road gets slightly rougher and you will need a vehicle that can cross the creek.
All in all, the campground is perfect for family camping or for anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors without needing to backpack supplies in. Only a short drive from Clayton, GA if supplies are needed.
Sarah's Creek has some really nice designated sites that are clean and well taken care of. You can't beat the price of $10 per night! Local rivers and streams offer great trout fishing in the spring.
Sarah's Creek has a lot of campsites, but some require water crossings that would not be recommended for lower-clearance vehicles. Some sites are more private and spacious than others. Some are in the vicinity of pit toilets. Sites have tent pads, picnic table, fire ring. Most are along Sarah's Creek. Bring your own water. Never had a bear bother me there, but seen bear activity. No cell service in campground but can get signal at higher spots on drive in. Gravel road can have some sketchy spots from season to season, especially in the last descent into campground. Can have some late night people driving through and trash has been evident from time to time. There are trash receptacles on site.
Some wilderness fields behind campsites 1-5 across creek, up hill, where you can see deer grazing on occasion, as well as some of the other fields throughout the area.
Campsite 1 has a really small waterfall/swimming area - great spot but lots of people can walk thru your site to access it, so keep that in mind.
