    Default June 10th 11th trail ride/campout North Georgia

    I dont get much time to get up to the mountains, seems like once a year. Well I,m going camping June 10th 11th and returning home on the 12th. I am going to stay at Low Gap Creek in Helen:

    CAMPGROUND NAME: Low Gap Creek

    VISIT DATE: 04/04/2000

    UPDATE DATE: 11/8/2009

    STATE: Georgia

    REGION: Southern

    RANGER DISTRICT: Chattooga River

    NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Helen

    RESERVATIONS: No

    DIRECTIONS:
    From Helen, GA, take State Rt. 17/75 north 0.8 miles to State Rt. 75 Alt.
    Turn left onto Rt. 75 Alt and then turn right almost immediately onto Poplar
    Stump Rd. Go 4.3 miles to campground.

    NOTE: Poplar Stump Rd. changes to gravel in 1.6 miles and becomes River
    Rd. (Forest Rt. 44) in 2.2 miles. At this point, the road continues as gravel
    and becomes single-lane, rough and winding.

    GENERAL COMMENTS:
    The elevation is 1,800 ft.

    The campground, located adjacent to Low Gap Creek, is comprised of White
    pine, rhododendron and Mountain Laurel. The creek bisects the campground
    - accessing sites 8 through 13 requires fording the creek and driving over a
    low water bridge. The campground is a favorite location for anglers fishing
    the Low Gap Creek. Each campsite has a lantern post.
