Andy's Trout Farm opened to the public in 1965.  It was founded and developed by Andy and Hazel Cope, with some help from their family.  In the late 1950's, while Andy was operating a service station in Dillard, GA, many travelers inquired about places to fish and camp.  The Copes used some mountain land, which they owned in the Betty's Creek Community, to develop Betty's Creek Recreation Area!  Later, they changed the name to Andy's Trout Farm and built rental cabins along the stream. They had found the ideal spot to raise rainbow trout . The cold mountain stream flowing from the mountains of North Carolina into Betty's Creek provided the water needed. It took the family several months to get a hatchery in operation for hatching, and ponds built for growing the trout. They began running the fish farm and selling trout that were caught from the catch-out ponds. They dressed the catch and even had a restaurant across the road from the fishing office! In 1968 Andy and Hazel Cope were granted the "Farm Family of the Year Awards"-  in both North Carolina and Georgia!

Took our teardrop camper. Sites are flat and easy to get into. Hook ups too. Lovey pond and property.

Exceeded my expectations!
Camping at Andy's Trout farm was a very relaxing and peaceful place to stay! The tent sites had water spigots and electrical hookups which made things very convenient. The two stall shower room was very clean and had hot, clean water. Daily strolls up to the Trout farm chatting with all of the staff and workers was a pleasure, everyone was very accommodating and helpful! Hiking up to the waterfall and down to the swimming hole was beautiful!

The trout was delicious!!
The hike to the waterfall was beyond amazing. The swimming hole in the creek was a favorite. The entire place was absolutely beautiful. Just breath taking. Everyone at the office was super friendly and helpful. Camp spots are stacked on top of each other, but there’s only 10 so it’s not that bad. The kids circling the camp ground multiple times daily entirely too fast, slinging rocks, and disturbing everyone’s dogs on their side by side and dirt bikes was the only downside. We are already planning on coming back.

The staff there were friendly and attentive. The place is very private and serene. We had a great stay and enjoyed fishing in the trout stream. There is a grist mill a short drive away that the run on the first Saturday of the month. It’s a cool place to see. Only complaint was the shower and bath weren’t cleaned during or stay and seemed messy on arrival. All else was great

We were slightly disappointed in the cleanness of the cabin that we stayed in.
