We have owned this property since 2005. The pond is a favorite place of ours and we would love to share it with you!! We live just up the mountain & are here for you via text if you need anything at all during your stay with us. The pond is in the middle of about a 4 acre area that is totally forested & makes a great place to get away from the madness of life & get into nature. Our street ends in a cul-de-sac, minimizing traffic in the area, but the spot is right along a street. You will be able to see & hear cars going by the site. On the other hand, it is also right along a deer path & just this morning I saw 2 does & a baby walking through the site. There is a resident hawk & a gaggle of turkeys that live in the area in addition to pileated woodpeckers & all sorts of other birds. Come check it out and please let us know if you have any questions. Learn more about this land: We would love to have you at the Pond at Dogwood Acres. Our pond is just a little pond, but it is full of life and makes for a cozy little campsite. You will be the only ones camping here. There is a long parking spot suitable for cars/SUVs/trucks and even a trailer or pop up.  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 surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest and here in Towns County we are 80% National Forest. Lake Chatuge is close by (less than 10 minutes) in Hiawassee has 132 miles of shoreline. The Appalachian Trail weaves all through the area and 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.  34'58'45.1"N 83'52'49.7"W On a larger scale, we are right in the middle of and about 2 hours from Atlanta, Asheville and Chattanooga. Any questions? Let us know!  Note- this campsite is on a residential street. Our street has a cul-de-sac and does not have much traffic, but there are houses in the vicinity of the campsite.

Loved this place! Very quiet neighborhood, also in a great location for hiking and spending time on Lake Chatuge. Especially loved the frog sounds at night.

Comfortable, welcoming, serene
This was an awesome serene place to camp out at! Very welcoming spot that felt safe and a great place to get away and be in nature. Definitely plan on going back!

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.

The campsite was very easy to find and very well apportioned. Megan even left us a nice welcome note and some goodies to enjoy by the fire. We will definitely be back!

Perfect spot!
The tent site was a perfect spot to stay and be able to enjoy the beauty of the NE Georgia mountains and surroundings.

November colors
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!

Sweet little spot! You really are surrounded by woods on three sides, and the hosts have cut some trails through the woods behind the site. The fourth side faces your access road; a dead-end with only a few houses. But the site is far enough from the road to get acceptable privacy. Great night sounds. Very hospitable folks too.

Absolutely amazing stay! It was my first time doing HIPCAMP and I will do it again. The site was very well kept and secluded. I stayed by myself as a girl and felt very safe.

Nice and quiet, but not so remote that you feel like you're going to get murdered :P It was awesome!

Nothing fancy but it didn’t need to be. I felt safe as a woman traveling alone (the campaign signs helped). Would have liked written directions on the Hipcamp app but Google found it okay. Would’ve been a cute place to pitch a tent if it hadn’t been raining all night. I slept in my car.

Definitely cozy!
Very unique site, very much "off the beaten path" -- you'd never know it was there! A jewel of a tiny pond, with a drive that is about 70' long, and just wide enough for a camper van to fit, with a small sitting area/tent site in front of the drive. The tent site is mulched, and there is a lovely wooden dock leading from the sitting area onto the pond, all of which is gently lit by solar walkway lights, giving the entire site a very magical appearance at night. In the AM, the pond was gorgeous, with some awesome frogs, and the sound of the creek very relaxing. Surprisingly few bugs, BTW - I was not bothered by mosquitoes or flies at all. Would definitely stay here again!

Not much space, but a great host
This site was literally a gravel driveway. We BARELY squeezed one tent into it. Right off a street. The pond looks like a field in the pictures, but it’s not! Also buggy.
