So we really, really love it when our North Georgia area is touted about in publications. Our friends at www.365atlantafamily.com have written an article about 52 Best Campgrounds in North Georgia and that just makes us really, really giddy. We appreciate that people love and appreciate our beautiful mountains just like we do.
