Yonah Mountain Camping Resort
In the northeast Georgia Mountains, not far from the Chattahoochee River, Yonah Mountain Camping Resort is so close to Yonah Mountain that it has a hiking trail leading from the camp up the mountain.
Mount Yonah’s rocky face keeps a watchful vigil over the communities of Cleveland and Helen.
In Cleveland you may happen upon a “birthin” at Babyland General Hospital, home of the Cabbage Patch Kids. The special world here combines fantasy and reality in one of Georgia’s most popular tourist attractions. Specially trained “doctors and nurses” will introduce you to the delightful world of Xavier Roberts, creator of the Cabbage Patch Kids. Just up the road from Cleveland is the tiny Alpine Village of Helen, a storybook village in a peaceful valley surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. Bavarian-style shops line the streets and cobblestone alleyways; dirndl and lederhosen-clad townspeople offer southern-style hospitality; restaurants prepare delicious wiener schnitzel, roulade and wursts; and the sounds of festive polka music fill the air as visitors stroll along the banks of the Chattahoochee River. Helen was once a small lumber town, then one day a group of business people wanting to revitalize the area developed the idea for the Bavarian Village. The rest is history. Today, more than 20 years later, Alpine Helen is truly a delightful touch of Europe in Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. This charming hamlet is home to over 200 specialty shops and 35 annual events, including the largest Oktoberfest celebration in Georgia.
East of Dahlonega and Cleveland lies Habersham County, where vacationers have satisfied the urge to get away from it all since the 1700’s. Out of the hills of Habersham flows the Chattahoochee with rapids for tubing and canoeing, and calmer waters downstream for fishing. For water sports enthusiasts, the lakes of Burton, Lanier, Rabun, and Chatuge offer boating, skiing, swimming, and fishing.
