North Georgia Foothills – Our Happy Place

by | Sep 26, 2020

With Covid still having an impact on our RV travel, we decided to return to the North Georgia foothills; an area we’ve traveled to before and know much of the surroundings. Before we arrived, we called a number of locations in the area and felt very comfortable in returning. How exciting is to be in one our favorite campgrounds, hiking the creeks and mountains, and enjoying the all the fun North Georgia offers this time of year.

The Campground

We’re back at Leisure Acres Campground in Cleveland, GA., one of our favorite North Georgia camping spots. Big rig friendly, full hook-ups, 50 amp, and pull-throughs provide a great stay. More, it’s family friendly with large playgrounds and a catch a release pond that kids love. We especially like the campground in the North Georgia foothills providing easy access and a very short drive to Dahlonega, Helen, great hiking trails, fall festivals (unfortunately, not this year) and spectacular vineyards.

The Vineyards

We took a couple of days and visited a number of the North Georgia vineyards and wineries. How fun! Each day offer a cool, crisp early taste of Fall. The vineyards and wineries were welcoming with friendly staff, safe surroundings, great wines and spectacular views. Grape harvest was in full view adding to our entertainment.

The beautiful mountains providing stunning backgrounds and the vineyards were rich in early Fall colors. Some of the tasting rooms were closed, but each vineyard worked hard to create space outdoors that was safe and still provided great surrounding to experience the great wines offered.

The Experience

The North Georgia Foothills are an area that isn’t shared in the travel magazines. I don’t get it. The area is rich in small, quaint towns, friendly folk, beautiful rolling hills, amazing vineyards and a ton of fun. Add this area to your RV destination list. You’ll want to return again and again.
