Trout Creek Campgrounds

22 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents7 acres · Tuckasegee, NC
When you think about camping, does your mind automatically think of a tent and a fire? Or is it more of an RV in a campground? Do you have arguments of whether or not your way of “sleeping outside” is actually camping? Well, opinions of all kinds obviously exist, but it’s true: camping exists in many forms. So whether you’re a newbie to camping and you don’t know where to start, or you’re a seasoned pro looking for inspiration, here are some kinds of camping to get you started on your next getaway. To backcountry camp, you generally have to go somewhere inaccessible from roads. It can be a mile away from the trailhead or somewhere in the middle of a mountain range during a weeklong trek. The point is you’re away from civilization. You pack in what you can carry, are never without a Swiss Army Knife, and (hopefully) pack out all of your waste and leave everything looking as good (or better) than when you came. ALL BOOKINGS ARE AUTOMATICALLY OFF-CREEK. UPGRADES ARE AVAILABLE DEPENDANT ON AVAILABILITY. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE HOWEVER ALL PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.

Andy's Trout Farm and Cabins

10 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents200 acres · Otto, NC
Andy's Trout Farm opened to the public in 1965.  It was founded and developed by Andy and Hazel Cope, with some help from their family.  In the late 1950's, while Andy was operating a service station in Dillard, GA, many travelers inquired about places to fish and camp.  The Copes used some mountain land, which they owned in the Betty's Creek Community, to develop Betty's Creek Recreation Area!  Later, they changed the name to Andy's Trout Farm and built rental cabins along the stream. They had found the ideal spot to raise rainbow trout . The cold mountain stream flowing from the mountains of North Carolina into Betty's Creek provided the water needed. It took the family several months to get a hatchery in operation for hatching, and ponds built for growing the trout. They began running the fish farm and selling trout that were caught from the catch-out ponds. They dressed the catch and even had a restaurant across the road from the fishing office! In 1968 Andy and Hazel Cope were granted the "Farm Family of the Year Awards"-  in both North Carolina and Georgia!

Luxury RV camping near Tallulah Falls guide

Overview

Perched at the mouth of the 1,000-foot Tallulah Gorge and hemmed in by woodlands, waterfalls, and lakes, the small town of Tallulah Falls is one of Georgia’s most popular outdoor escapes. Sitting pretty at the entrance to the Tallulah Gorge State Park, hikers, campers, and leaf-peepers can explore scenic rim trails and five waterfalls, hike down into the Tallulah river gorge, and admire views of Hurricane Falls from a 200-foot-long suspension bridge. The state park campground has tent and RV campsites with electric hookups, plus backcountry camping.

Where to go

Rabun County

North of Tallulah Falls, the mountains Rabun County affords plenty of options for hikers. Head to Lake Rabun just outside of town, check into a campground on the shore of Lake Burton, or see the waterfalls at Moccasin Creek State Park. For mountain hikes, you can’t go wrong at Black Rock Mountain State Park, Georgia’s highest state park, where you can drive your RV up into the hills or rent a mountaintop cottage. 

Habersham County

In the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and dotted with small towns, Habersham County stretches south of Tallulah Falls. Go canoeing, kayaking, and fly fishing along the Chattahoochee and Soque rivers, or try hiking and backcountry camping along part of the Appalachian Trail. Further south, Lake Russell has hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, while Don Carter State Park sports a lakeside campground and cabin rentals.

South Carolina

Tallulah Falls sits right on the border of Georgia and South Carolina, making it easy to hop over state lines. On the border, Lake Tugalo is a popular spot for boating and fishing, but if you prefer your water sports with a dose of adrenaline, you could try whitewater rafting along the Chattooga River instead. Also within reach are the many campgrounds of Lake Keowee and Lake Hartwell, and the mountain trails and cabins of Oconee State Park. 

When to go

The state park and campgrounds are open year-round, but the best weather for hiking and camping is in the cooler months of spring and fall (March to June or September to November), as summers can be sweltering in Georgia. Leaf-peepers should time their trip for fall when the forested gorges serve up some of the state’s best fall foliage views.

Know before you go

  • Tallulah Falls has a general store and a couple of restaurants and cafés, while the closest gas stations are along Highway 23, a short drive from town.
  • Both a daily parking fee and camping reservation fees apply at Tallulah Gorge State Park. A free, first-come, first-served permit is required to access the gorge floor and is available from the Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center. Numbers are limited, so arrive early, especially on weekends and holidays. 
  • Permitted backcountry camping is possible only at designated sites within the park.
