Sandy Bottom Campground SignThe Coleman River Trail parallels the river for 1 mile through stands of large old-growth timber. Good, hard-surface roads until you reach Forest Service Road 70; expect a narrow, gravel road that is crooked and steep in parts. Whether you plan your trip during the rebirth of Spring or later in the year during the display of the prominent North Georgia Fall colors, this 14-site developed campground is sure to heighten the innate beauty of any season.

Graced with various species of hardwoods and resting on the shore of the Tallulah River, Sandy Bottoms provides a rustic experience for the outdoor enthusiast to camp, swim, fish or just to sit back and enjoy the scenery.
