The Toccoa River Cove consists of  12 acres of beautiful secluded private gated and heavily wooded property hidden away only a few miles from Blue Ridge Georgia! Fantastic location yet very private for base camp to access the many activities in this area. The property is ideal for car, shelter or tent camping and is short walking distance from the Toccoa River, a world class trout fishing river!  Use of the community lot at the river is included in your rental!  You have the entire property to yourself during your stay- this is a single user campground. Check in and check out are contactless.

The Cove consists of 12 acres of lush woodlands/wetlands and includes  2 spring fed ponds (300 gallons a minute of cold drinkable (potable) pure mountain spring water from the main pond), a year round bold creek system that is a tributary for the Toccoa River, a fire pit for your provided firewood, a nice outhouse/privy, a park charcoal grill, bench, and a  picnic table. The property has many different areas for tent camping throughout the acreage. The Cove has a 300 square foot covered rustic Adirondack shelter with a food preparation area and some chairs and tables for day shelter, general camping, central clubhouse  or bunking in inclement weather. It has a very nice outhouse/privy that is health department approved.

 A private 15 foot wide woods road loops around the perimeter of the Cove property and there are walking paths and a trails system with 7 small bridges across the creeks throughout. The property has both north and south facing mountain slopes with an abundance of mountain laurel, ferns, native hollys, large hardwoods, pines, and rhododendron everywhere. 

The Cove will not accommodate and is not suitable for any type of towed camper, travel trailer,  cargo trailer, motor home or RV. 

The property and your camping experience  includes easy access to the Toccoa River at the community lot on the river (located at 49 Gibbs Drive) which has a charcoal grill, picnic table, small boat launch, swimming rock and fire pit. The river is controlled flow and usually at low water from dawn to about 3 pm, ideal for fishing or swimming/wading/boulder bopping. The River release schedule is available online (tva.gov).  The River has swift current when the dam is opened for release, usually daily. The river is very cold year round.

There is little to no traffic on the roads around the Cove - there are no other destinations past than the Cove. There is parking available for many vehicles along the roads at the main gates if you have a larger group. 

The main loop road into the Cove from the main double gates on Bear Walk Road to the parking pad at the intersection with the road down into the Cove to the camping area and shelter is a dirt/gravel road  and is  all weather. The gravel parking pad on the loop road above the Cove parking area at the top of the hill can accommodate 2 vehicles end to end. The parking area right at the camping site and shelter is a short and narrow downhill dead end road with a very small parking area at the bottom that will accommodate only one car at a time. If you have multiple vehicles you must park them on the side of Bear Walk Road at the main gates- it is a 3 minute walk to the Cove if you park on Bear Walk Road.

The Cove is conveniently located at 401 Bear Walk Road, Mineral Bluff, Georgia, 30559, 4 miles off the 4-lane highway (Highway 515/76) and just a short drive to Blue Ridge, Georgia; Blairsville, Georgia; Murphy, Tennessee; and Copper Hill, Tennessee. It is located just a few miles from the center of downtown Blue Ridge, which is a very charming town with art galleries, many restaurants, brew pubs, shopping, the Blue Ridge Brewing Company, Mercier Orchard, the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad, and more! The Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad runs most of the year from Blue Ridge to McCaysville, right along the Toccoa River across from the Cove.  

You are a short drive from Lake Blue Ridge, the Chattahoochee National Forest, Brasstown Bald and many hiking trails, such as the Aska adventure area, the Appalachian Trail, the Benton McCaye Trail, and trails in the Big Frog wilderness area, Cohutta wilderness area and the Rich Mountain wilderness area. The Ocoee River whitewater center with  the Olympic kayak rapids  and the world class mountain biking trails are less than 20 minutes away. Hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing, boating, swimming, zip lines -- oh my!

George and the Cove were great! The outhouse really is nice… really! The shelter was perfect and the kids loved running around taking in everything. Very secluded and the campsite is contained in a way so that we could let the kids have a good time waking around by themselves. We will be back for sure!

This property is so much better than we expected! My family loved the privacy & my dog loved the freedom & ponds to splash around in. Shelter is large & well built, and the property had everything we could need for a perfect weekend of nature therapy. Can’t wait to go back!

This is our fourth time to visit this site. Each and every time it was remarkably well stopped and clean. Great privacy, hiking trails nearby, maybe our favorite thing about this site is the fresh mineral pond. Plenty of room for our doggies to run around safely. Only downside is we don't like fireworks and there were plenty on the 4th, off in the distance though.

Toccoa River Cove is amazing! It’s quiet, secluded, pups can be off leash with no worries, and it has everything you need- a roomy dry shelter and water. The site is fantastically located as there are numerous hiking destinations an hour or less away: Aska, Amicola SP, Vogel SP, the AT, and more. It’s our new favorite place!

This was our second time staying here and it was just as great this time too! Peaceful and tranquil setting right in the middle of nature. Provides a great shelter to relax in if it happens to rain. One of our favorite spots. Will definitely go back😊. George is a great host!

This is our 2nd time camping here and it’s one of our favorite spots we’ve been in the past few years. The site is shady and cool even in the summer. It’s lush and green and beautiful. Our kids and pups loved being able to run and roam and not worry about bothering anyone.

Great campsite! The dogs loved being able to run around off leash and cool off in the springs. The extra amenities that George has in the shelter came in handy. The property is easy to find. Looking forward to a return trip.

Awesome campsite! Shelter is sufficient, plenty of space for campers and tents, and the site is well-maintained. The springs are really neat and convenient for potable water. It wasn't difficult to find the property even though cell service became spotty. We plan to visit this site multiple times going forward, especially when the kids are old enough to enjoy camping. George was very nice and easy to communicate with.
