Reserve America does not include this information on your confirmation.

This campground of 4 RV/tent sites is situated on the eastern border of Tate’s Hell State Forest on the western banks of the Ochlockonee River which runs from Georgia through Florida to the Gulf of Mexico. The forest and plants in this campground are very different from the rest of Tate’s Hell SF which is either in upland pine and palmetto or estuary and estuary swamps.

When the trees are fully leafed, you will have a canopy of oaks, magnolias, bays, gums, some pines, red maple, gall berry, palmetto and high bush blueberries. Occasionally you may see the pink pinxster wild azaleas in late March and early April. Both purple and white violets are common in spring as well as bluetts.

This site is closer to the other two sites in this campground and the combination of three sites with interconnecting grassy openings would make for an excellent group camping location.

This is a primitive site which means it has no toilet facilities and no water. Tate’s Hell Forest adopts the “Pack it in, pack it out” rule. Please abide by it.

All the sites are on the east side of County Road 67. To get to Log Cabin Road take CR 67. Turn east on Short Road and drive for .9 miles till you reach Log Cabin road. Drive for another .9 miles to CS 23. Continue along the campground roads to the other 3 campsites.

The site is large and could easily accommodate 8 individual tents.

Putting out or taking out from this site may only be for the very nimble.

The Ochlockonee River drops sharply here from any shore footing and the downriver current can be very strong when the river is high. Watch for eddies where downed trees or branches are near the shoreline.

We recommend you take your boats to campsite 23 and launch from there.

The view from downriver and upriver are shown below.

The forest around the campground has recently been subject to managed burns which simulates the natural effect of lightening of forests in order to restore the land to more sustainable methods of management.
