Visit the North Georgia Mountains

Visit the North Georgia Mountains

Many people don’t realize that Peachtree Cove is located a comfortable and lovely hour’s drive away from Blue Ridge, Georgia. This mountain city is nestled in the heart of the lovely North Georgia mountains. Each year, hundreds of people flock to the North Georgia mountains to enjoy the beautiful scenery, tour the quaint historic downtown Blue Ridge, and soak up hours of relaxation up in the heights.

Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of touring in the North Georgia mountains is that, while many thousands flock for a visit each season, the area rarely, if ever, takes on the feeling of a major tourist attraction with all of the entailed chaos and traffic. There are also many activities to help make the most of your vacation and family time, including the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, floating down the Toccoa River, horseback riding through the mountains, scenic driving for motorists, hiking, and more! And the best news of all? You can visit during any season: all year ’round!

There are numerous restaurants scattered throughout Blue Ridge offering wonderful dining experiences to enhance your visit. Also, don’t forget about the many charming shops at which you can purchase scores of quality items to add that special touch to your home and life, or as gifts for the ones you love. From home furnishings and décor to old fashioned candy and everything in between, you can build up your vacation to the highest notch possible when you take advantage of all Blue Ridge has to offer.

If you think you need to stay in Blue Ridge to benefit from all it offers, don’t be mistaken. Peachtree Cove RV Park is ready and waiting to welcome you to the mountains. And besides, what could be better than basking in the beautiful Smokies of Western North Carolina at night, while still making the most of a North Georgia experience?

Rafting in Western North Carolina

Rafting in Western North Carolina

What better way to spend a vacation in Western North Carolina than to raft our nationally known Nantahala River? Winding through what is commonly known as the Nantahala Gorge, the River is hemmed in by towering mountains and beautiful view of the sky. Rafting here is a wonderful way to make family memories, enjoy another aspect of God’s wonderful creation, and experience the delights of cold water and rapids.

Every summer, hundreds of tourists flock to the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina to visit the Nantahala. Flowing beside the two-lane US Highway 19/74, this lovely river is a striking combination of adventure and calm. The highway is dotted with numerous areas for picnicking and enjoying the river while staying dry. For the majority, however, paddling the river is the greatest attraction.

There are many local rafters who are ready to help make your trip down the river a success. There’s the Nantahala Outdoor Center, the Paddle Inn Rafting Company, WILDWATER, and Carolina Outfitters, to name a few. Book your journey down the Nantahala now!

If you are looking for a home-base from which to launch your adventures at the river, consider your search ended. Peachtree Cove RV Park is the perfect place to set up camp so you can enjoy days on the river to the fullest. Contact us for more information and to make your reservation.

Great Smoky Mountain National Park

Great Smoky Mountain National Park

What a beautiful retreat from the busy and noisy chaos of life the Great Smoky Mountain National Park has proved to be to countless scores of people. From misty mornings that are full of refreshing anticipation to the comforting warmth of a summer day and the crowning glories of evening, the GSMP is a haven for those seeking refreshment and rest from the “daily grind.”

The GSMP features a striking diversity of wildlife including hundreds of species of birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians, in addition to what may be the two most attractive sights of all: black bears and elk. There are numerous opportunities to enjoy God’s spectacular creation from the hiking trails that snake through this spectacular mountain range.

Perhaps the most well-known destinations in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is Cades Cove – a rich valley that has been circled with a one-way paved drive for tourists to leisurely see the sights at their own pace. The Cove features a European settlement dating from around 1820. The area has a wealth of history enclosed in the walls of the many 19th century buildings which include log homes and barns, three churches, and a working grist mill. If you prefer biking or walking to driving a motor vehicle, there are special times that the Cades Cove loop is closed to motorists to allow bikers and pedestrians time to enjoy the park at their own convenience.

If you are looking for a place to stay while visiting the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, consider dropping in for a visit at Peachtree Cove RV Park, located near Murphy, NC just over an hour’s drive from the GSMNP. Let me add here that it is a beautiful hour’s drive, and well-worth the time in and of itself. Give us a call at (828) 557-2722 to make your reservation, and don’t forget to check out our offered amenities to see how your stay with us can be enhanced. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you make the most of your visit to the Great Smoky Mountains.
