Campground Description

One of Georgia's oldest and most popular state parks, Vogel is located at the base of Blood Mountain in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Driving from the south, visitors pass through Neel Gap, a beautiful mountain pass near Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. Vogel is particularly popular during the fall when the Blue Ridge Mountains transform into a rolling blanket of red, yellow and gold leaves. Hikers can choose from a variety of trails, including the popular four-mile Bear Hair Gap loop, an easy one-mile lake loop, and the challenging 13-mile Coosa Backcountry Trail. Cottages, campsites and primitive backpacking sites provide a range of overnight accommodations. The park's 22-acre lake is open to non-motorized boats. During summer, visitors can cool off at the scenic lakeside beach.

    This campground is just wonderful for some good fishing, and just plain and simple R&R. It is nestled in the valley of several mountains and the scenery is just amazing. We stayed in one of the smaller cottages/cabins during the winter and totally loved it. Highly recommend this beautiful park! Hiking is just fantastic!
