Backcountry style primitive campibg

A beautiful spot to camp next to the river and swinging bridge. Not a fat walking distance from the parking spot but, feels remote enough. It’s best to hike to it though for the reward aspect. It is a primitive spot, with nothing, so respect the natural area and expect it to be just that. A stream side, serene camping area.

Cable Gap Shelter

First shelter south of Fontana Hilton on the AT. Nice little shelter, originally built by the CCC. Rebuilt in 1988. Water source close at hand. Not many leval tent sights. Has a latrine ! No reservations…first come, first served.

Conveniently located.

We hiked into Rufas Morgan, northbound on the Appalation Trail, and found the shelter occupied. We set up our tents on the levalest spots we could find down hill from the shelter. Great water point at this shelter! Best thing is that NOC is only .8 miles up the AT! Easy to go get something to eat, grab a resupply, and return to camp!

Awesome view

Site 69 , love the view love the place very quiet and very clean showers are clean site it self it’s clean friendly host and the security guy very friendly as well , my wife approves it lol and we are definitely coming back

River RVing at its best

Lots of good RV sites right along the river. Full hook ups in A section and then plenty more around the camp ground that offer all but sewage.
1 video of the gorge which is really close by and a nice hike

Beautiful camp

Conasauga Lake campground is heaven on earth for this country boy. On top of Grassy mountain in North Georgia it is a great small camper / tent camp. Lots of large hemlocks and rotadendren on the trail aroundthe lake. The gravel road up the mountain is not for the faint of heart but worth the effort.

Quiet loop near a small lake

We went mid-November, so water and bathrooms were closed. The sites are not very private, but there is some space in between.

Would probably be more fun during the summer.

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.

Pretty Nice Place!

The scenery here is beautiful; I enjoyed being able to set up my tent right next to the stream. The sites are close together, but it was fairly empty when I was there. The staff seemed disorganized and didn't really know what they were doing, but they were friendly enough. The bathhouse is far from the adult camping area, but overall it was a decent camping experience!

Rude and unfriendly staff

The staff here doesn’t care about customer service.  They have an attitude and act like they are doing you a favor by just speaking with you.  There are plenty of options in north Georgia, so I’d recommend skipping Enota simply because the people are rude and it’s not worth supporting a place that doesn’t treat people the right way.
