Where to stay in Blue Ridge

Although Blue Ridge offers a good selection of budget-friendly bed and breakfasts and luxury resorts, the easiest way to experience this scenic part of Georgia may be to stay at a mountain cabin. The area surrounding Blue Ridge boasts many privately owned vacation cabins. Many offer spacious rooms and their own fireplace and hot tub, plus unbeatable mountain views and lots of privacy. For something a little more rugged, consider staying at a campground offering both tent and trailer sites.

  • Spent a nice weekend at the camp site. It was quiet and fairly private. I loved the location and had fun Kayaking in Blue Ridge Lake. The camp host were blunt but nice, no southern charm there. The only downside I found, that will directly influence me coming back was the bathrooms. They were clean and modern. But some one had the not so bright idea to install 15 sec shut-off valves on all the showers so you spent most of your shower time hitting the button. And the water temp was just a hair over room temperature, with no way to increase. If I wanted to take a cold shower with limited water I would have gone primitive camping and saved my money. Over all nice place to stay if you like cold showers and scenic views.
  • Beautiful location! If your ideal of camping is being watched at all times, then this is the place for you! The staff will work with the local authorities if you're in violation of any small offense. Be prepared for a hefty fine!
  • Beautiful Lake Blue Ridge and the Chatahoochee National Forest make a great setting for the Campground at Morganton Point. If you are a tent camper, you will love the number of waterfront sites. If you travel in a small RV there are several great sites to accommodate your rig. Kayaking on the lake is terrific. Blue-green clear water with trees spilling down to the water's edge. Beautiful scenery good "put in" points, a sandy beach and boat launch. There is also a day-tripper area with picnic pavillions and a bath house (small fee for parking).
  • The lake is beautiful but we will never be going back. We got fined $990 for 3 open beers. There's plenty of other campgrounds in north Georgia that are just as beautiful and with a lot less interaction with the park employees. The park employees drive by too frequently, turning a relaxing weekend into a highly-monitored and less fun event. We were not being loud or unruly. I am extremely disappointed.
  • Great location to rent kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Great for the whole family. The GuidedvSunset paddle is AWESOME!
