Where does everyone ride in Northern Georgia?

Hey I live about 45 minutes north of Atlanta on 400, and I need to know of a good place to legally wheel (Besides forest service roads). Any ORV parks in the area that are in state? Thanks.

Beasley Knob has a few nice trails and camping (Its in Blairsville). I am hoping to make it up there in the next month or so. River Rock is fun but its a privately owned park. They have open weekends where you pay $40 bucks to wheel all weekend. They have a weld shop, back-hoe, bathrooms, and showers. The trails always change because the owner gets his co-pilot (Bud Light) and his back-hoe and goes to town. Its in Milledgeville by the way. Morris Mountain is a little past the Alabama/Georgia line. I haven't been there yet. I would say Tellico in N.C./TN but I don't think its open anymore (at least not for a while), could be wrong though. I'll post something when I get ready for my camping/wheeling trip.

Are the Amicalola trails on the park grounds or just in the area? Could you tell me how to get to the trails?

There is Durhamtown Plantation, out 20E from Atl. I haven't been there personally, but a friend has many times, and plans trips on a regular basis.
Google - durhamtown plantation ORV

There are no signs on the roads for it. It is privately owned, but open pretty much each weekend. It used to be motocross only.

Has cabins, campsites, showers, and even an area to air up prior to heading back home.

The GaTR map is outdated; all of the Anderson Creek area has been "rehabilitated" --- that means it was disappeared by the state.
There are only a couple of roads in the Chattahoochee National Forest that you can call trails; two of them are up behind Amicalola Falls State Park.
Here; I'll make you a map:

These are the two bumpy roads that they left us; they aren't challenging unless you take bad lines on purpose. We camp up there very often; holler at us or watch the Eastern States section of ExPo to see upcoming trips like this one:

It depends on weather conditions and the line you pick. I've taken Old Bucktown Rd on days that it resembled a river --- and 4-low was required. And on some days the ruts are dry and you can do it in 2wd if you're good at it.
I recently ran the entire area with a couple of guys from the IH8MUD forum. The dude in the 4-runner kept his in 4-hi. The dudes in an old FJ40 and in a built Tacoma locked their rear axles but ran in 2wd; they didn't quite keep up but they made it through without much drama.

But you can always play with the roads. There are some v-ditches on Old Bucktown that have flipped/rolled the unwary wheeler. A 3 foot deep slippery ditch can be a puzzle if you don't do it right.
And the road to Amicalola is a freakshow when it's iced over....
