Overview

Overview

The Morganton Point Recreation Area is located in the Blue Ridge Ranger District, within the beautiful northeast Georgia mountains. Pristine water and scenic views draw visitors from around the state and region.

Natural Features:

The campground offers multiple sites adjacent to Lake Blue Ridge, in the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Lake Blue Ridge is known for its aquamarine waters surrounded by the forested foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The 3,290-acre reservoir boasts over 60 miles of shoreline, with around 80% belonging to the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Recreation:

The Morganton Point Recreation Area offers visitors year-round recreation opportunities including camping, picnicking, boating, swimming and hiking, all centered around beautiful Lake Blue Ridge. The lake is open to motor boats and jet skis, as well as non-motorized watercraft.

Fishing in the 3,290-acre lake is a popular activity for visitors to the Morganton Point Campground. Anglers can expect to catch a variety of bass and other fish. Visitors are encouraged to check with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for a complete listing of freshwater fishing regulations for Lake Blue Ridge.

Day-use hiking trails, including one that parallels the lakeshore, are ideal for short, relaxing strolls through the forest. The Appalachian and Benton MacKave trails pass through Fannin County and are easily accessed near the campground.

Facilities:

The campground offers dozens of individual and group campsites, available for tent and RV camping. Several walk-in sites are for tents only. Some sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets, accessible showers and drinking water are also provided.

Beach access includes a designated swimming area, picnic tables, outdoor showers and trash collection bins.

Nearby Attractions:

The nearest convenience store and gas station are located in Morganton, about a mile north of the campground.

The nearest full-service grocery stores and shopping villages are located in Blue Ridge, approximately 15 minutes west along U.S. Highway 76.
