USFS Recreation Sites Reopening

April 7, 2014

Recreation sites across the Chattahoochee and Oconee National Forests are re-opening to visitors after being closed for the winter.

The Forest Service said managers anticipate a busy season as the majority of recreation sites have reopened.

Officials also noted that visitors may notice improvements to many sites thanks to the work of volunteers and recreation enhancement fees.

The Forest Service said people can contact a Forest Service office for directions, information about recreation areas, safety tips, special events and more.

The closest office to Stephens County is the Chattooga River District Office in Lakemont. That office’s phone number is 706-754-6221.

Meanwhile, people can also find more information by using the forest’s free mobile app for smartphones and tablets.

Forest Service officials said the app helps locate sites for camping, picnicking, hiking, swimming and other activities on Georgia’s national forests, as well as delivering updated news and alerts so visitors can stay informed about changing conditions while on the go.

Information about the app and the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests in general is available by going online to the Forest Service’s website at
