Situated high in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest, Lake Winfield Scott Recreation Area allows you to experience Georgia camping at its finest. The 18-acre lake was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s and offers ample opportunities to swim, fish, boat & hike. Sleep under the stars on one of the 31 beautiful campsites, or rent a two-story cabin, accommodating up to 12 people.  The Bavarian village of Helen, GA is close by and Atlanta is less than two hours away. Groceries in Blairsville are only 16 miles away.
