Cooper Creek Campground is situated in the Cooper Creek WMA within the Chattahoochee National Forest 13 miles from Blairsville, GA. The campground is well kept and is a nice place for just a weekend getaway or an extended stay. This is a pretty busy campground even during the week, so we recommend getting there early to claim your spot.
The campsites are fairly well spaced, so the privacy level is decent. There are creekside sites, but they are obviously the most popular, so if you get one, consider yourself lucky. The site we ended up getting wasn’t directly on Cooper Creek, but it did have a small brook running adjacent to it. The campground does have 15 sites, but #14 is located right next to the vault toilets, so I would not really consider this a site unless you are seriously desperate.
Cooper Creek and Mulky Creek are a haven for trout fishermen, as the creeks are home to wild and stocked trout. You can fish right at Cooper Creek campground or take the numerous trails along the bank of the creek if you’re not having any luck at the campground.
There are several hiking trails that start in or near the campground and all are interconnected, so forming a loop is a breeze. The Yellow Mountain Trail is the longest at 3.2 miles, so these are great little trails for taking the kids or the inexperienced hiker on. The Duncan Ridge Trail isn’t far up the road if you would like to do a more challenging hike.
