Spring camping in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia starts the moment campers see the extraordinary scenery that abounds in all directions. Spring time camping means there is great trout fishing, wildflowers, native azaleas and blooming dogwoods. Small towns such as McCaysville and Blue Ridge were founded when the railroad reached the mountains. They include speciality shops, antique shops, restaurants and friendly welcoming people. The area is known for its artsy scene that includes several galleries, live music and even a community theater to enjoy. No mountain camping is complete without hiking and this area has hikes to waterfalls such as Amicalola Falls and Long Creek Falls. Tubing along the Toccoa River has become a popular activity for many families who camp during the spring in this area. Horseback riding on mountain trails, family hayrides, and hiking the Appalachian Trail are all available to spring campers in the Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains.
