Love it!

Three trout streams, waterfalls, the AT. Only accessible by hiking or the unpaved forest service road. Bears do live in the area so store food appropriately. Long falls is just a short hike up the AT.

Best camping

I absolutely love the three forks campground. All of the sites are situated along a creek, and a fair distance from each other (most sites you drive between) and off the road. It feels pretty secluded, though there is heavy competition for good spots and I don’t think you can reserve in advance. So if you’re heading out for the weekend, make sure you leave earlier on the Friday to snag a good spot. Dog friendly, and enough space to let your dog run around and not be distracted with other campers/campsites. You can drive your car into a few of the spots, others you park in the road and carry your gear down to the site. This is definitely one of my top favorite camping spots in Georgia. Weather has always been fairly cool when we go, really comfortable and nice.

Great hike into the wilderness

This is a great 1 mile hike into the wilderness to see three rivers come together to form the upper chatooga river. The campsite next to the falls is not very level with drop off in either direction. It is good 2-3 adults. Not great for little kids. The falls are amazing and there are nice overhangs in the rocks where the river comes together.

Three Forks Campground

This is one of my favorite camping spots to get away! It's way down a long dirt road, there's a bunch of dispersed camping spots along the river side so water is pretty accessible and the sound puts you right to sleep. The AT cuts right nearby and its a short hike to Long Creek Falls. This area is pretty secluded, you may see 3-4 other camping parties but that'll be it!
