Default Good remote places around nw ga?

Advertise Here

Hi all! I'm new to survivalism but would like to test out what I already know. I want to plan a two and a half day "camping trip" for the weekend of November 6th. I'm not really sure where to start with that. I'm assuming national parks are out. I want to be able to hike to my location and be virtually alone. I know hunting season has started and I don't want to end up dead by accident. Does anyone know of any good spots near a water source? Please help!

I don't know about the north WEST side, but over to the east there are several places.
In Fannin, Union & Towns counties.
Any place where one of the major trails (Appalachian, Benton Mackaye..) cross a road that has a parking spot.

The Chattahoochee national forest, Cooper's creek management area, But unless you are in really good shape, stay away from the Cohutta wilderness area.

Most of theses areas have water (getting a little less with this weather)
Just boil or use a good filter.
And this time of the year be extra cautious about the blaze orange clothing.
It's been a year since last gun season...Some hunters will blast anything moving.

The only places I've camped on the west side is in parks. Cloudland Canyon and Fort Mountain and both of those are georgeous. My favorite is also on the east side. Tate City, a remote area with 3 small state campgrounds off the Tallulah River road which follows the river up near the headwater. The river is more of a creek up there and just a beautiful place to camp. For hiking you can cut across Charles Creek Rd and pick up the A/T for day trips.

Be can't go to Tate City without dreaming of moving there.

Here's a link to a map that zooms in all across North Ga with the creeks and pretty good topo.

i cant help with GA
first should learn land designations and regs that apply to them,
national parks is quite specific, also look for national forests, and state lands, state forests,
east coast we tend to have more state lands than Federal lands

most places you can camp without restrictions or at least very little restrictions, most places have a 3 day limit on camping before requiring a permit.
also check on fire regs in that specific area, call local forest ranger for info

as for hunting season, i recommend sticking to trails, and wearing orange
if you do come across a hunter in a tree stand, blind and such( if a hunter sets up a stand or blind near obvious trail he should expect others passing through on occasion), keep your eye on him and continue your path on the trail, try to make eye contact and/ or a waive to acknowledge each other, just dont stick around to try to make conversation.

Here in NE Georgia I don't know for sure but I'm betting a camp fire is out. Due to drought. Some of the best primitive camping is at Wildcat. Go past the camp grounds and there are great spots next to running streams. I go about 7.5 miles from the pavement. No phone no internet no radio no electronics.
