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!

Cabin 3 - Andy's Trout Farm Cabins
The rustic cabins were a nice alternative to camping. Sonia was great. I asked to be changed cabins due to Cabin 3 not have a railing on the porch and I have a 3 year old. She was able to get us in Cabin 5 which had a porch railing and it was nice. It is a nice place to disconnect from wifi and cell phones. Since there is no tv and rarely a cell signal. Wifi was available at the office. The fishing was great and we ate trout every night. The gem grubbing was fun for everyone. My three year old played in the water with his cars while the adults grubbed for gems.

Dangerous elecrical
Overall, it was nice got to visit with my family period but, they need to work on the electrical and the and the roads leading up to the campground. Terrible electrical would not pass any code. Dangerous. The cabin was nice. We stayed for 2 nights. While my motor home was being repaired.

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!
