Nestled alongside the picturesque Tallulah River, deep in the rugged mountains of the Chattahoochee National Forest, the Tallulah River Campground makes a perfect spot to pitch a tent or park the RV. Unlike the nearby Sandy Bottoms and Tate Branch campgrounds, which are both closed for the winter season, the Tallulah River Campground is open for enjoyment year round.

Bring along a fishing pole; the Tallulah River is routinely stocked with rainbow trout. For hikers looking for beautiful mountain day hiking, the Coleman River Trail and Scenic Area is a stone’s throw away. And don’t forget to bring a swimsuit for the countless opportunities to cool off in the river and swimming holes nearby.

This pet-friendly campground offers 16 large, first-come, first-serve tent or RV sites. There are no RV hookups, but there are three RV pull throughs. Each campsite has a large gravel pad, picnic table, fire ring, lantern pole, and is surrounded by trees. Amenities include drinking water available via six water spigots, bear-proof trash receptacles, and two pit toilets. The cost to spend a night here is $15, but the fresh air and stunningly panoramic mountain scenery is nothing short of priceless.
