The Cove consists of 12 acres with a tributary stream and spring fed ponds less than a half mile from the Toccoa River. It was originally the water source for the surrounding properties prior to the city installing a water system. It is completely private and unspoiled nature, with about a mile of walking trails throughout. The Mountaintop is a 3 acre high elevation site bordering 140 acres of undisturbed woods and is also very close to the Toccoa River. Fantastic location yet very private for base camp to access the many activities in this area, or enjoy the Toccoa River. It is the only campground in Fannin County limited to only one group at a time. Each 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! The Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad runs most of the year from Blue Ridge to McCaysville, right along the Toccoa River. The campsites are equally close to downtown McCaysville, Ga. /Copper Hill, TN. 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 (largest wilderness area east of the Mississippi) the Rich Mountain wilderness area and the Project Chimps hiking trails. 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, fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing, boating, swimming, zip lines -- oh my!

Your Toccoa River Cove!
George’s campsite is one of my favorite I have ever been to for all of the same reasons that other guests have reported. It’s a very pleasant, picturesque, cenvenient, and private spot. I would definitely like to stay here again in the future.

Your Toccoa River Mountaintop!
Wonderful campsite. We had a great time exploring. Neighbors dogs were super friendly and played great with our dog. Fire pit was ideal. Shelter had some great seats. Outhouse was great as far outhouses go, well ventilated with accommodating seat and lighting. So thankful for the cart to bring gear back and forth.

Your Toccoa River Mountaintop!
Great campsite with lots of amenities. The shed is well-built and spacious, providing great shelter in inclement weather. The property is nestled in the woods yet very close to Blue Ridge and surrounding activities. It's a wonderful place for a weekend of forest-bathing!

Your Toccoa River Cove!
Perfect for camping with dogs
Loads of amenities for off-grid camping! This camp site is a quiet little slice of heaven, so secluded and the sound of the creek running adds a perfect touch to the peaceful atmosphere. Hosts gave detailed instructions on how to find the site, and it was so easy to get there. We were pleasantly surprised with how dog-friendly it is!! Our three dogs wore themselves out exploring the area and wading in the creek. Thank you for sharing your land with us!

Your Toccoa River Cove!
We’ll come back
Great spot. Down poured our first night and we were able to fit our crew of 9 humans and 4 dogs on the porch to play games and wait it out. Easy to walk down and fish on the river, great fire pit to congregate. If you use google maps (specifically) it’ll take you straight to the address on gps.
