About Wildcat 1

Following extensive work to repair road damage, the Chattooga River Ranger District reopened Wildcat Road, FS Road 26-1. The road has been cleared of the landslides. Both Wildcat campgrounds 1 & 2 have all amenities available. Camping fees are $10.00 per night, per site. Although the winding road leading to the campground is not RV friendly, the payoff of landing a night in this environment is pure delight. These developed campgrounds are buried deep in the North Georgia Mountains west of Lake Burton and along the headwaters of Wildcat Creek. The creek, seasonally stocked with rainbow trout, runs directly adjacent to the campsites and provides for an astounding setting, so be prepared to capture nature at its best, and bring your camera. On clear nights the stars appear to be just an arm’s reach away!    Photo 1 Photo 2
