The vibe at The Pocket Recreation Area
Drop some The Pocket Recreation Area knowledge on us.
A hidden gem, The Pocket Campground is adjacent to Johns Mountain and located on a tributary of John's Creek that winds around the camping area. Heavily wooded sites offer more privacy than most developed camping areas.
The campsite has 26 spots with short paved aprons and gravel tent pads. Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring with grill, and lantern post. Water is available throughout the site from communal spigots, but there are no RV hookups. No Electricity.
Bathrooms are flush toilets with sinks and were clean and stocked when we visited. The ranger in charge was nice and pointed out a few nearby hikes and landmarks for us.
Less than 2 miles away is Keown Falls, a beautiful and easy 2-mile hike great for kids!
