Such a beautiful spot to camp! The dock was lovely, and though we didn't swim in the lake the water was perfectly warm :) Felt very safe, location was quiet and clean. Would definitely recommend.
Stunning! Amazing! Can’t say enough good things!
My husband was dragging his boots when I booked camping during the Georgia/South Carolina game. The second we arrived, I could tell he was intrigued. Our campsite was private, but easy to access. It was clean and came equipped with a picnic table and existing area for fires. We stayed on property the entire weekend and had plenty of things to do including apple picking, lunch at the farm store, climbing and swinging at the treehouse, grabbing a delish & perfectly strong slushy drink at the distillery, and strolling back to our tent while the sun set over the farm animals.
Second stay-here’s what we learned
Second time here and were surprised we were able to get the dock site! These sites are first come first serve. Not all of the sites are near the lake so just beware you may end up next to the pasture or somewhere other than the lake. I wasn’t able to grab this site my first time here so I was excited it was open when we arrived this time! There is some road noise over the lake so if that’s an issue for you, just take note. It’ll die down after dark. Oh, make sure you take a flashlight to the outhouse even in the day because once the door is shut it’s completely dark in there! Lol! As far as local stuff, we took full advantage of the homemade bagel breakfasts at “The Gauge” coffee shop/outfitters up the road. (“Humble Pie” next door to coffee shop has amazing pizza btw!…think Mellow Mushroom but better!) The C.B. distillery is always a fun way to kill time and spend way too much money which we did! Lol! The location of Chattooga Belle is stunning and I was sad to leave. We didn’t make it to the Chattoga Belle restaurant for lunch so maybe next time. The community in Long Creek is amazing as they all seem to want to support each other. Make sure to visit “Willies Restaurant” up the road for live music and drinks if you can, too. Beautiful building and patio with a cool fire pit and a bit of history! Loved our stay at Chattoga Belle. Definitely didn’t have time to do everything we wanted so we will be back!
Awesome - even in the rain!
We found Chattooga Belle Farm by accident a few years ago and have come back at least twice a year ever since. We camp on the sites down in the woods - and honestly, don’t try to get down there without 4x4 - our friends learned that the hard way this last time around. A very appreciative shout out to Ed himself for coming to their rescue! We couldn’t have done it without him!
We got monsooned on the whole time we were there - at one point the creek rose to about 6 inches from overflowing into our site. But despite it all, this little slice of heaven never disappoints. Between the bistro, distillery (shout out to Ben), Humble Pie, and The Lodge, we always managed to find shelter nearby, meet fun new friends, and our entourage of 5 huskies was always welcome. We never had any issue escaping the rain and staying close by.
Finally when it did clear, we had the most amazing campfire and laughed all evening down by the creek one last time. Many good memories! Even in the rain! Thanks Ed and Kitty!
This was our second trip out here, and had a great time again! Although the weather didn’t cooperate, we got to spend some time at the distillery which was fun for the whole family. The children played on the swings outside and there’s a nice covered porch with rockers and tables. We got to see lots of animals, and pick some fruit. We will def be back again
Great time but rained out
Overall we had a great time. We made the best of the trip. Lots of rain! I think if it was not raining we would have had a way better time. We brought fishing gear and couldn’t get to the lake lots of briars wished we would have brought our small boat then again (Rain) lol 😂.
The farm is beautiful, it’s quiet, the cows, horses and the alpaca were like being at home for us. We walked around the property some of course it was raining. We couldn’t make a fire but left some wood, and other fire related items for the next campers. We wished their would have been a way to have some sort of additional cover especially with it raining and needing to cook, we definitely
did some primitive camping this weekend.
Would have loved someone to guide you through everything before you just “found you a place” to set up camp. We got water from the distillery and wished we could have gotten some honey, ended up walking the apple fields picked us up some took it back to base camp. Next time we will bring a canopy or two for additional shelter and a Better shower tent lol ours didn’t make it in the rain. Bringing our dogs was great they enjoyed it. Again we all got soaked lol we need to upgrade some of our equipment to be prepared so that doesn’t happen again.
But overall we had a wonderful stay and will be back!
The setting was beautiful right by the lake. Loved walking through the apple orchards up to the main building to see the incredible view. Great swimming in the lake. Very peaceful and quiet even on Labor Day weekend. Had a wonderful time in spite of the torrential rains 75% of our stay. Will definitely return. :)
