Goat Hill Camp

· Athens Clarke County Unified Government (Balance), Clarke, Georgia
1 acre hosted by James C.
1 lodging site · 1 RV/tent site · 1 tent site
My residential acres are surrounded by old growth forest with a creek and the North Oconee river. My home is up on the hill, overlooking the campsites, and the goats are busy landscaping the Hill. You can enjoy the river and go for hikes along the trails in the woods. You’re very close to the Eastside, Of Athens, and all the commercial needs. The property backs up to Uga’s golf course.

Riverside RV site
Perfect layover!
Tent camping nestled in the river running through Athens. Tenting was my original plan, but the small cabin opened up and the host reached out to me to kindly ask if I would prefer AC. Worked out perfectly as it was a hot mid June day. Cabin and adjacent outhouse/shower was perfect. Host met at site and was super cool and accommodating! Highly recommend and close to all Athens has to offer!

I liked tent camping on James’ land and the wonderful sound of the river lulled me to sleep easily. It’s private, beautiful, and easy to find. His communication was friendly and clear. The bathhouse is awesome and I just loved the goats! Recommend having a tent footprint or tarp, and a wagon to carry things to the tent site. A really great little spot!

The cave cabin
The whole experience was great! I saw deer in the morning looking out the window at the mountain. And the goats are so cute. My favorite part was the swing down by the river. I was down there for hours and loved it

The cave cabin
Stayed for one night, thoroughly enjoyed! The walk along the river was peaceful & the goats were adorable! The cabin has nice personal touches & comfortable as small as it is.

Riverside RV site
A Perfect Pitstop!
James' Riverside campsite was perfect for my overnight in Athens to see Bonnie Raitt! James communicated really well, so I was able to arrive, set up camp, and get on with my short visit. I chose the site because he has built a little Bathhouse for the use of campsite and cabin guests. It's awesome! A tiled shower, a big sink and a keypad lock on the door for privacy and security. An unexpected bonus were the landscaping goats on the adjacent hillside. So cute! Things to be aware of: Perhaps I didn't park my teardrop on the sweet spot, but I did have to use levelers to get even close to level. Also, you are visible from the road and there is road noise. But, it calms down at night, and the goats and I slept like babies.

Beautiful spot on the river, even in the pouring rain! We loved staying here it was beautiful and calm, and such a plus to have an amazing bathroom with hot water.
