|Tumbling creek is just out our front door|
Cuzzin Dyck started it & he's been rolling with it every year since then. He's friends with a lot of the locals (good folks!), there is fire wood and a fire going almost all the time.
The nearest towns are Ducktown & Copperhill.

This is my 3rd one but I have been here camping at least once when it wasn't a GTG. Nice place!
The spot is an abandoned Forest Service campground. Some years back, the Forest Service showed up one night, picked up all the tables, the fire rings & boarded up the outhouse and capped the well.... the next morning it was no longer a Forest Service campground...
This is a 'bring everything yourself' camp. There is a creek and places to park or set up a tent. You are on your own for toilet facilities too.

There is a fair amount of shade so solar does not do as well as at some places... It's one in the afternoon right now, Rich has sunlight & will have it the rest of the day, Dyck too. Our panel should be getting full sunlight in an hour or so...
A good Verizon signal but no ATT.

A bunch of friends show up for as much or as little camping as they care to do or have time for. You occupy your time doing what makes you happy & sit around the campfire shooting the shit... This is just friends camping in the fall.
Usually meals are fend for yourself but every now & then someone gets an idea & we all join in.
We had a really nice pot luck a few days back, EVERYTHING was great! Mac-n-cheese, homemade egg rolls, Chicken Parmesan, pickled vegetable salad, sliced tomatoes, garlic bread, brownies & peanut butter fudge. Last night I made a big pot of simple spaghetti, someone else had hard rolls & herb-garlic butter... good good good!
There was some talk of chili & a roast tonight.
There are forest roads, old homestead sites, a fishing lake at the end of this road and the creek. Tumbling Creek is a nice one too!
This morning it was in the lower 30's. I had to put long pants on yesterday evening and a denim jacket over my hooded sweatshirt this morning. Any less of a campfire & I'd have had to put shoes & sock on!

It's getting near time to head farther south!!
