3 Reviews of Chattahoochee-Oconee/Sandy Bottom
Quiet site on the river

Peaceful little spot. A small loop of sites with decent space between.

It’s first come first serve, but we were able to drive in Thursday night at 6pm and get site 6, right on the river (the whole camp was about 40% full).

Bathrooms are a short walk from all sites. Water is easy to find.

There’s a 15$ fee per night, self pay.

If you’re in the area, this is a good spot to get away from the world.

Camp next to the river

Lovely campsite. Some space between you and your neighbors, but not the most private camp I’ve been at. About half the sites are along the river and the others are just a short distance away, so you can still hear the river. We were there in mid November and it was full. It was also cold, so people ran their generators all night long, which obscured the sound of the river. During the day, the camp was quiet and gorgeous.

Perfect river camping

Been coming to this spot For a few years. I love it because you can camp right next to the Tallulah river and still feel out in nature, while having covered bathrooms, water pump access, and a town 15 mins away for supplies. The other great thing about this spot is the trout fishing. It is regularly stocked with rainbows and makes for some beautiful Landscape while fishing.
