Cradled in the southern tip of the Appalachian Mountains and just a short 25 minute drive north of Helen, Georgia, is Enota Mountain Retreat. This nature preserve offers a variety of camp sites, rv sites, and cabins.
What adds to its beauty and allure is that it is located near the middle of Chattahoochee National Forest.
From the campground you can take a couple of short, but steep and moderately demanding series of hikes into Chattahoochee National Forest.
After which you will be rewarded with some great views of a couple of different waterfalls.
Along the way are some interesting sights including a former water storage facility.
This non-profit conservation facility’s goal is to become self-sustaining. To that end, they have their own organic farm and have a variety of animals.
They provide daily tours of their facilities with opportunities to get up close with the animals.
The wide variety of sites are nestled throughout a small mountain stream including tent sites, medium RV sites, large RV sites, cabins, and motel rooms.
While they are relatively nicely apportioned, they do lack some basic facilities such as cable TV (since there are no over-the-air channels available). Additionally cell phone service and WiFi are spotty at best.
For the kids there are fun activities such as in-ground trampolines.
For the nature lovers there are wildlife viewing stations where you may get lucky and see some wildlife thorough the viewing holes. A motion sensor and light will let you know when wildlife is present.
Getting away to nature is easy at Enota Mountain Retreat is easy with a friendly and helpful staff.
If you want to get away from it all for a short spell, and help a non-profit organization, Enota is a great place for a nice getaway in the northern mountains of Georgia.
