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 lederhosenclad
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.
