N.Georgia:OffRoad+Camping?

Hi,

Does anyone know where 3 couples could do some moderate off-roading, then camp safely out there for the night? Maybe an off-road trail to a great camping spot? Ideally it would be somewhere we could light a fire, cook, and hang-out for the evening without being too close to anyone else. We're city slickers looking to get away for a weekend!

Thanks!

not sure how far you're wanting to drive... but, Land between the lakes is pretty cool.

If you want secluded, the Blue Ridge WMA has some good spots. Get a map of the forest from one of the ranger info centers. Don't ask me where, some friends brought me a map back. There are some primitive camp areas up FS77. Frank Gross Campground is on Rock Creek, FS69. It is a little more civilized with a restroom. The wheeling is just forest roads, but the scenery is nice. Check the WMA websites. The website will also tell you if any hunting is allowed, and the dates. I prefer to stay away during those times. I think there is also a fire ban at the moment, so I would check with the ranger station, or the website, as to whether you can use the fire rings or not.
