We are at River Bend CG. Mostly looking at fall color and kayaking.

We drove through River Bend CG checking it out for our club for next year. Unfortunately, they are already booked for the month of October next year. It is a time when just about all campgrounds up here are booked a year in advance. Hopefully the weather gets better for you. Woke up to rain again this morning. We are going to an antique mall and then to Jim's BBG just outside Blairsville. If you like BBQ, this would be worth the drive. It was rated top ten in the nation last year. One more day and we are headed home in the morning. Safe travels to all!

We have eaten at Jims BBQ before. It is good. Weather is supposed to break tomorrow and be nice.

The sun is shining to blue skies this morning and the temperature was a nice 49. Let the fun begin! Water is almost back down to normal as long as no more rain dumps on us. We will be going home Friday.
Safe week to all.
Opps, my mistake. We were at the Mountain View Resort in Blue Ridge which is just down the road a few. We were actually in Blairsville two weeks ago at a different campground. lol

Hiawassee GA

We just spent 4 months (June/Oct 4th) at Bald Mountain Resort in Hiawassee GA this year and enjoyed it. We will be back again July/September in 2015 after a trip up to Chicago to visit relatives and a couple weeks at 2 Rivers Campground in Nashville area.

Two years ago we got to GA earlier than out scheduled stay at River Bend (but opted out because of a bait and switch technique that they tried using on us), so we stayed at Mountain View across from the airport for a week. The first thing I noticed was that they had the lower siding off of a cabin and there was mud from a flood up to the bottom of the trailer. The second thing we noticed was that there was mud in the pool. As it turns out we just missed a major rain storm that had the same effect as the pictures in the other post. Probably like the one earlier this week.

As mentioned above, we had a reservation to stay at River Bend campground, our reservation was to camp on one of their river sites so our dog could do his daily playing in the water. Well, when we were at Mountain View, the DW decided to verify our reservation.. They tried to tell her that we did not request a river front site. DW gave her the site # and the person that approved it and the date. My wife confronted her on it and the person just hung up on DW. We have talked to a lot of people that encountered the same types of issues with that CC. One person said that the Wi-Fi was not even usable at their site, and the CC posted a sign on the door that said that the Wi-Fi is a FREE service and don't complain to us about it. Wait a minute, how do they pay for Wi-Fi? Is it not figured in each of our daily/weekly/monthly/seasonal bills? Needless to say we did not stay there, or ever will. We found Bald Mountain Resort and really enjoy it there, and it is a great base station for short trips around there.

Watching the weather channel this week, I believe that the entire North GA mountain area is flooded this week.

Sorry you had a bad experience at River Bend. We have stayed here twice and had the complete opposite experience. We made our reservations almost a year ago and they called us a month ago to confirm the site #.

Well, needless to say, we left beautiful weather in Blairsville. Never saw the sun the whole ten days we were in N. Georgia. Had a beautiful day for driving home. I talked to some folks that came down from Kentucky and they said they had not seen the sun the whole time they were up there either. I guess it was a good thing as that front kept the hurricane from coming ashore on the east coast. Should not complain too much I guess. Mountain View resort across from the Blairsville airport has been sold and is putting in another 100 sites. I wonder if the new owners know there is a flood problem there. OH well, problems of ownership. I don't think I want to buy a lot in there however.
Happy Camping to all.

We arrived in Hiawassee last Wed. Thursday it cleared and since has been chamber of commerce weather. We rode over to Blairsville and looked over mountain view CG. Nice view and location but IMO not for us.
