There is a long parking spot suitable for cars/SUVs/trucks and even a trailer or pop up. You may park & camp in your vehicle or you may pick a spot to pitch your tent. Feel free to pitch your tent at the end of the drive in front of your vehicle, there is a nice flat spot on the opposite side of the fire pit. The driveway is all gravel but the spot to pitch your tent on the other side of the fire pit is mulched and leveled.
There are hiking trails leading into the woods at the right side of the end of the drive. Feel free to enjoy them. We are working on leveling more tent sites. You are more than welcome to pick a spot in the woods to pitch your tent.
There is a large fire pit up the hill on the opposite side of the pond. You are welcome to use it. You may collect any fallen wood on the property.
We are surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest & here in Towns County we are 80% National Forest. Lake Chatuge is close by (less then 10 minutes) in Hiawassee & has 132 miles of shoreline. The Appalachian Trail weaves all through the area & you can get to numerous access points for the AT within about 30 minutes. There are a many waterfalls throughout our area within about a 30 minute drive as well. The closest is Cupid Falls just behind Young Harris College. Fire's Creek in Hayesville is a favorite spot. Otherwise you can head towards Vogel State Park and find many more.
Head north on state road 66 heading out of Young Harris towards Warne, North Carolina. Travel almost 4 miles passing 339 and then make a right on Brasstown Lane. If you see mile marker 4 or get to Warne, you passed it. Once you turn onto Brasstown Lane it will be on the right side. Coming from North Carolina head south on 66 out of Warne and make a left onto Brasstown Lane. We are about 1 mile south of the North Carolina state line. We are somewhat in the middle of Blairsville (GA), Hiawassee (GA) and Hayeville (NC). Not far from us is the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC and just a bit further is Murphy, NC.
On a larger scale, we are right in the middle of & about 2 hours from Atlanta, Asheville & Chattanooga. Any questions? Let us know!

Safe, easy place to car camp
This is a cute spot. The reason I have mixed feelings is because the description doesn’t describe that it is just across the street from houses. That’s awesome if you’re someone new to camping/camping solo or if you’re just looking for a safe place to camp/sleep with easy access but I was a bit thrown off by it. The host was responsive and very kind leaving a printed a very detailed list of everything nearby and S’mores! I would stay there again if that is the kind of spot I was looking for. The amphitheater and little circuit of trails is cool. Also consider mosquitos with the pond if you’re there in the summer. For the host, if you had addressed those things in the description and I had decided to stay there I’d 100% recommend! Thank you for your hospitality.
Little pop-up on a great little sit
This was a great place to stay with me and my family for a mountain bike trip to the woods. The little strip of land was narrow but had a cute fireplace and a great host. The pond is nice the kids got to play around it and a nice little walking trail connected the pond to the campsite.
We had a great time this weekend in early November. When we pulled up Megan had gifted us a s’mores pack and a handmade letter; a wonderful gesture. The brass town road comes up quickly so be on alert. Back into the gravel road to your campsite as it will be easier for you to navigate. The trails connected to the site were nice and clear for my dog to play. You are off a road that has low travel at night that connects to another road that gets traffic at night, so medium sound. I slept great with no distractions other than the dog barking in the area. The star show at night and colorful trees made the trip worthwhile although we had a full day planned with many nature finds all around us. The birds sing in the morning and since check out was 12 we didn’t feel rushed when we woke up. The dock was quaint, my dog loved it. My husband approves this spot so I feel we may come back to stay. Thank you Megan for your excellent set up and hospitality.
Perfect fall getaway
Our visit was perfect for an overnight getaway without having to deal with the people, noise, and RVs of a campground. It was close to the road as described in the listing, but it was a quiet road with very few cars and with the car blocking the drive, I hardly noticed it. Megan left a super sweet note letting us know about local attractions and and necessities we might need. There was enough room to ramble around in the woods a bit and we still got to hear the last of the season's frogs. The solar lights made the place cozy after dark. Plus it's super close to John C Campbell, Vogel, Unicoi, Smithgall Woods, Desoto, etc. You could easily use it as a base for lots of quick day hike trips in the mountains.
Little escape from the college life
Great little site that provided a nice space for my friends and I. Be aware that the site is right off of a road so cars can be seen driving by or neighbors. This did not bother us at all though! Megan was super nice and made sure we were okay :) bugs were not an issue and a fire pit is provided. The area was so cute especially with fall being here. The leaves were gorgeous!
