Chenocetah Fire Lookout Tower, GA

Partner: Chattahoochee National Park

January 9-14 and 16-21, 2022

To those in the know, Northern Georgia is where it’s at for mountain scenery and recreation. Less than two hours from the cultural and economic powerhouse of Atlanta, the Chattahoochee National Forest offers big-city visitors and small-town dwellers alike an opportunity to reconnect with nature and history. The Chenocetah Fire Lookout Tower was built in 1937 and added to the National Register in 1984. The tower’s construction served two purposes: first, to leverage the Works Progress Administration program to employ farmers in poverty during the Great Depression, and secondly to assist the forest in spotting wildfires. Today it is only opened to the public one day per year, during the Big Apple festival of Cornelia, GA. RVs/trailers, campervans, truck campers, and tent campers can all access our nearby campground – and there are heated bathrooms and showers to boot!
