Boggs Creek is one of our top 5 campgrounds in the Hooch because of a combination of features. It's easy to get to, at the southeastern base of Blood Mtn, about 10 miles from Cleveland. The sites are far enough removed from the road that you hear NO traffic on 129. The fisheries tank truck stocks the stream regularly with many trout, RIGHT in front of the campsites! The sites are spacious, well-spaced. The facilities are cleaned and stocked regularly. One minus is that there is no drinking water available, but you can fill your jug at the Chevron station just south on 129 when you go for ice or more beverages. We camped there on Easter weekend in 2007 and it snowed on us! We woke up at 6 am to 28 degree temps (and dropping). We were the last to break camp and go home, but it was empty by noon on Saturday. There are two fords where you can cross through the creek to some good sites. There's a great group of sites across the stream at the second ford, maybe 6 or 8 sites, with their own single restroom. Across the first ford, there's a group site that's always been occupied when we go. Helen is about 20 minutes away, Cleveland about 15. Desoto Falls is up 129 with 2 beautiful trails to 3 waterfalls. Pass Desoto Falls you will find the Walasa-Yi center (and store with lots of fun stuff) where the AT passes through the only man-made structure on its 2175 mile trek to Maine. It's a stone building built by the CCC boys and has many interesting features and a spectacular vista into Neel's Gap to the south. Beyond that is Vogel State Park and Blairsville. All of the sites (with a couple of exceptions) have a lantern pole, picnic table, fire pit and a grill on large gravel pad. It's always full of families with kids out to meet others. Great fishing and wading but no real deep swimming holes. If you're looking for good swimming holes, go back south to Turner's Corner & turn west towards Dahlongega. Then make a right about a half mile onto Dicks Creek Road. You will find lots of swimming and better fishing on Dick's Creek. In fact, the best swimming hole in the Hooch is about 150 yards upstream from the concrete bridge that crosses Blood Mtn Creek where it joins Dick Creek, waypoint is N34.698948°, W83.951847°. It's 8 feet deep, 40 feet long and 20 feet wide, but trail footing can be tricky. I've been wandering around the Hooch since I was 13 years old, and I only recently realized that there was camping along Boggs Creek. There's a sign by the road that says "Boggs Creek" but no designation of campsites. This may be why it gets less attention than other USFS locations, despite the easy access and number of sites. Have fun and CAMP the HOOCH!
