Overview

Located in the northern Georgia mountains, far from civilization, Willis Knob Horse Campground is one of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests most beloved horse-lover hideaways.

The campground features equestrian camping, riding and hiking trails and fishing in the nearby Chattooga River.

Natural Features:

The horse camp is located in a heavily wooded area of the forest, amid deep canyons and near to the Georgia-South Carolina border.

Recreation:

The 12.5-mile Rocky Gap Trail and the 15-mile Willis Knob Trail provide some of the most scenic horseback riding and hiking in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains. Winding across deeply dissected ridges, the trails descend into the vast Chattooga River.

The 10.7-mile Chattooga River Trail and the 37-mile Bartram Trail are also accessible nearby and are for hiking only. Fishing is available in the Chattooga River.

Facilities:

The campground provides single, double and group campsites for tent and RV camping. There are water and electric hookups at each of the campsites, along with tables, lantern posts and campfire rings with grills. Accessible flush toilets and drinking water are also provided.

Hitching racks and a horse watering station are available. Campers are required to clean up after their horses using trailers provided on-site for manure and hay.
