Please see the included map to navigate the property once you're there. Here it is verbally:
Once you have turned off of Mineral Springs Rd. onto Walnut Row, make your first left BEFORE crossing the bridge over a creek. Follow this through a field, crossing the creek at a shallow ford. Continue until you see the POND. Bear right around the pond. We're camping in the vicinity of the PAVILION, right next to the pond. There is water and electricity in the pavilion.
The Pavilion is: 34 43 31.9N 85 18 20.2W

Food, Drinks, Walmart, etc are all close by in LaFayette.
Stuff to do near here:
Caves - Fairly close by are PJ's cave, Nash Wfall, A Spg., OooLaa, 4kngs, Richrdz, Dragfld and other Pigeon Mtn caves. Frick's isnt too far, VERY scenic entrance, but you cant actually go into it.. Also there's Iron Horse - ask me about this in a PM if you're game (Brad Long).
Hiking - Rocktown, The Pocket (with cool cliff to repel also), Estil Tunnels trails - all of these are SPECTACULAR. BE WARNED - you will need a GA hunting permit to use any Pigeon Mtn. WMA resources!
Shopping - Inner Mountain Outfitters is just a hop-skip-jump from here, but call & make arrangements before you go..
If you have questions, we have answers.. ask away!
