Your Toccoa River Mountaintop is a secluded private gated 3 acre heavily wooded camping site on top of a mountain in an upscale area, hidden away only a few miles from Blue Ridge Georgia! It has paved road access and also has Toccoa River access at community access lot. It is located in  Mineral Bluff, Georgia. This is a walk-in/walk-out camping site with a large Adirondack shelter for all weather camping. Park in the gravel driveway outside  the gate and walk in approximately 300 feet. Wagons are provided in the shelter to ferry your gear to and from the parking area. Super Pet Friendly- no leashes needed!

This campsite is restricted to a maximum of 6 campers and 2 vehicles at all times. The Mountaintop will not accommodate any type of camper, trailer, or RV. Check in and check out are contactless.

Fantastic mountaintop location yet very private for base camp to access the many activities in this area, or enjoy the Toccoa River. The property is ideal for shelter or tent camping and is a short distance from the Toccoa River, a world class trout fishing river!  Free use of separate community lots at the river is included in your rental! You have the entire property for your use- there are no other campers nearby. The property is adjoined by 150 acres of rugged terrain forest.

The site has a large rustic Adirondack shelter (300 sf) with a food preparation area and some tables and chairs you can use for camping in, day shelter, central clubhouse or bunking in inclement weather, or if you are just car camping. It will also accommodate a large tent in the shelter and several tents around the fire pit.

This lot easily accommodates a group with several tents, with a flat camping area, a picnic table,  a charcoal grill, a fire pit and al all weather enclosed privy.  Bring your own firewood. It has a National Park style charcoal grill. This site does not have power or water. Cell phone service is easy to get. 

The site includes 2 access points to the Toccoa River. The Gibbs Drive community river access lot has a charcoal grill, picnic table, boat launch, swimming rock and fire pit with chairs. The Toccoa River Forest community river access lot has a big boat ramp. The river is controlled flow and usually at low water from dawn to about 2 pm, ideal for fishing or swimming/wading/boulder bopping. The River release schedule is available online at  the website TVA.gov.  The River has swift current when the dam is opened for release, usually daily.

 

This property is conveniently located in Mineral Bluff, Georgia 30559, just 4 miles off the 4-lane highway (Highway 515/76) and just a short drive to Blue Ridge, Georgia; Blairsville, Georgia; Murphy, North Carolina, McCaysville, Georgia and Copper Hill, Tennessee. It is a paved road drive all the way to the entrance. It is located just a few miles from the center of downtown Blue Ridge with art galleries, many restaurants, brew pubs, shopping, the Blue Ridge Brewing Company, Mercier Orchard, the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad, and more!

Beautiful spot with really nice amenities! It was remote enough for some privacy but still close to activities and town if we needed anything. We will definitely be back.

A perfect campsite! We loved staying here, especially the structure to get out of the rain. It was very secluded in the woods, but still close to town and easily accessible. Our only complaint was the smell of the outhouse carrying in the wind to our tent.

Such a cool place to camp in a beautiful area. It rained during our stay and being able to put our tent under the shelter was nice, especially with a baby. Outhouse was also a nice feature. Clean no garbage or anything. Would recommend.

We had a wonderful stay! Everything was just perfect! The area was beautiful, with a lot to explore. A tropical storm blew thru one night & a thunderstorm another night, we were safe and dry in the shelter. Loved watching it rain & listening to the rain on the tin roof. We’ll be back!

This was a really nice spot. Close enough to supplies and lots of trailheads to explore but remote enough to have lots of privacy. George did a great job answering all of my questions. :)

Love the campsite, George. Will return.
Please tell us how the trees create their own raindrops. It wasn’t dew as there had been no rain for a week.

Exactly what I was looking for: somewhere in the woods with a few amenities and a shelter to make it warmer in my tent. A great fire pit and clean shelter AND outhouse! This was perfect! Thank you, George!

Wonderful site. The shelter was great for doing food prep, and having a floor to conduct personal hygiene/change clothes on. Great fire pit area. The site is just far enough off the road so you feel secluded, but close enough to be easily accessible. There is also a house just down the hill (within eyesight and shouting distance) so campers can feel safe. George came up shortly after I arrived and made sure things were right. *a word of caution* the roads are very narrow, so take your time going around the turns (one lane) if you are not in a 4x4, stay on the blacktop.

Large fire pit The shelter is bigger than it looks. There is also a way to enclose the front with tarps if weather gets tough. Plenty of space for food prep.Excellent sunsets in the fall/winter
