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!

Nice and private site, however the grounds are very low lying which produces a wet land type of camping site. The ground stayed wet for our whole trip cause there is a lot of tree cover. Keeps the temps cool but damp. The shelter was a nice touch and provided a great place for shelter when the storm blew through. Overall it was laid out very well and would have been excellent if the grounds were drier. The wet does bring out the bugs and spiders and an occasional snake.

Shelter was a GAME CHANGER
The campsite on the mountaintop had every single thing we needed to feel comfortable and most importantly, dry! We booked here because of the shelter (so that we wouldn't have to reschedule if rain was forecasted). We set up our tent under the stars the first two nights, then relocated to inside the shelter because of a big nighttime storm that came through. The outhouse was very well maintained and a great bonus and the countertops and furniture in the shelter made it feel luxurious compared to our usual backwoods camping. Pulley systems for a clothes line and lantern hook were so practical. Loved everything about this place. Go hike at Project Chimps. Just do it!

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.

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.
