Beautiful and private with great sh
Shelter was clean and nice, views were wonderful and the property was nice and private, bathroom was clean and George was a wonderful host. We would definitely stay here again as well as recommend it to our friends.
Great little spot. Bigger than expected. Quiet and relaxing. It rained our entire stay, but didn’t “dampen” the mood at all. We stayed dry and had a kept the good times going. Highly recommend!
This place is fantastic, and we had a great weekend! The shelter was really nice to have and felt so cozy. It even had some camping and grilling supplies in case you forgot something. The spot was well maintained, with a really nice fire pit and wood available. The surrounding woods were lovely. George was great, available, and helpful. We were very happy and impressed and can't wait to go back.
Relaxing mountain getaway
We had an amazing weekend at the Toccoa River Cove. Campsite was awesome and the all the small camping amenities in the shelter make it that much better. This is our second time staying at a property by this owner and we would gladly do it again.
George is awesome. Site is nice. Shelter is amazing. Outhouse is handy. Not as private as the Cove (his other property) or as much as we wanted just due to proximity of the cabin and its occupants next to it, but it's tucked back nicely away from view. I will say we were up late with music and a fire and had no complaints, so that's good. You have to trek your stuff uphill a bit, but host provides a sturdy wagon and a handy cart. This site can be pretty windy (which we didn't mind, but good to know). Might want to check those directions to the site as the cabin's house next door is number is 257, not 277 as listed in directions. Overall we would do again, as it's nice and private and clean and a great value. But the Cove property is probably more our style.
Site was great and as described. Especially nice was a good dry stack of fire wood and some helpful touches and ‘extras’ in the shelter that weren’t expected such as a couple of snacks, gas canisters, gas lamp, cooking pots, gas camp stove and a few other bits.
The only element we didn’t like was the tricky access around the gate and then an uphill path to the site which made getting gear from the car to the site a chore. Although a hand cart was provided, it would have been much easier if you could open the gate.
Wonderful & serene
Had the most wonderful time relaxing at Mountain Top. The site was spotless and serene. George had added some wood that we used and then chopped up some fallen logs to replace the stock. The outhouse was super cute and clean as well. The shelter worked perfect for us and eliminated the need for a tent (though we did setup a tarp on the closeline when thunderstorms rolled through).
Our 11 year old said this was the best camping site yet and asked if we could come back next time - so that's a win in my book. Plenty of room to run around and let the kids play, plenty of trees to hang hammocks. Quiet and relaxing and couldn't have asked for anything more. The carts were especially helpful in getting our gear to and from the campsite.
All was good.. host reminded us gps directions didn’t work in text.. got turned around with truck and trailer and ran into a neighbor that showed us the way and let us know they didn’t care for the host. There’s a lot of money on this mountain and they don’t like the fact that regular people can rent a site.. what she said.. they also saw our truck with a trailer and atv plus dirt bike on it.. site said atv friendly but signs all over on the roads saying no atvs.. we rode either way with no issue. River access was a bit sketchy.. pulled up. Found the access to be like a legal easement.. fished for a minute but then the neighbors let their not friendly dogs loose on us and luckily we got out of there without getting bitten. I’m a dog person.. they were sketchy. So in a nutshell, if u want to just go and chill , not fish, not ride atvs.. this is a good spot for roughing it. The locals don’t want u there we were reminded.. just make sure you are not acting up.. the people who live on this mountain aren’t friendly.
