This is supposed to be the 'largest wilderness area east of the Mississippi', yet I had never even heard of it before last weekend. Me and a buddy with a sweet restored 69 Westy wanted to escape from our cities (Knoxville and Atlanta) and find someplace quiet for Memorial Day weekend, but we hadn't planned ahead and there isn't much boondocking in this part of the world.
He suggested this small CG in the Cohutta Wilderness in the Northwest corner of Georgia. We had to climb up to about 3200' on pretty rough gravel roads, which I know is a laugh to you Westerners. Over here though most people live at near sea level, so while it was 85 at home last weekend, it topped out at a nice 68 up where we were. Turned out to be a beautiful, quiet weekend and the CG wasn't even half full.
Looks like a beautiful and restful spot. Glad you had a good time. To bad I cannot even start to pronounce it.
Makes me think about going somewhere quiet for the 4th.
