About

National Forest

CLOSURE DUE TO WINTER WEATHER--JANUARY 14, 2022 storms have damaged the West Wildcat Road to not allow safe vehicle access to the campgrounds.Wildcat 2 Campground__is closed. Cannot access with vehicle to clean COVID standards.Although the winding road leading to the campground is not trailer or RV friendly, the payoff of landing a night in this environment is pure delight. These developed tent camping only__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!____

Great spot to disconnect

This is an amazing place that I didn’t know existed until I dug deeper into Dawson Forrest! Have spent a lot of time there on the driving trails but have never camped. Im glad I found this spot and will definitely go back!

Went to the lower campsite

We went to the lower campsite because the road to #2 was flooded. We actually briefly walked across the river bridge and found a beautiful spot right next to the river. The sites were dispersed enough, maybe 50-100yds between tents with trees separating. Would highly recommend. There are no amenities, so be prepared.

If you want to hike the area, do some homework before arriving because there is no service.

Primitive camping near Lake Burton

Wildcat #2 is about 4 miles up a gravel road from #1 and provides no amenities but great dispersed car camping sites in the national forest. Spots are huge and spread out, great for groups as multiple cars and tents can easy fit. Makeshift fire rings and tent spots are at most sites. No water so get some on the way in. No cell service either. Great stargazing, lots of trees/shade and hammock spots. Hang your food and pack out your trash!

Water slide

This area is great for 2 reasons- it tend to be cooler in temps in the summer because of the shade and higher elevation. It's about as far south as you can go and still get that nice cool NC shaded air. The water is crystal clear and cool and best of all, there is a cool water slide for adults and kids to have fun and cool off with.
