Georgia Creekwood Story



Most everyone that comes here says the same thing over and over “This is what we want to do”. “How did you do it?” or “How much do you want for it?” Basically we got lucky finding this little piece of Heaven here in the North Georgia Mountains. (It’s not for sale). We love it here, and have no plans of leaving.

We Robert & Melissa started camping in 1999; after buying our 1st used motorhome, later we ordered a new one from the factory. We were hooked right away on the camping lifestyle.   We are big NASCAR Fans and loved Camping in the infield of Dayton and Talladega.

Robert loves Fly Fishing and is always in search of the ultimate river. We found Helen Georgia and the Chattahoochee River on a Birthday camping trip we took my dad (Melissa’s dad, Harry) on in June of 2003. We camped at Vogel State Park and Unicoi State park. Little did we know that one year later we would find our future home and life only 3.8 miles farther down the road from Unicoi SP on Hwy 356. Robert now Volenteers for Trout Unlimited Foothills chapter.

I (Melissa) am getting back into Golf after a 10 year hiatus.  We belong to the wonderful local golf club in Helen called Innsbruck (it is open to the public 706-878-2100

We were sick of traffic, commuting, and working for someone else in the not so fun corporate world. So we started looking for a Campground, the cabins were a bonus. After finding Creekwood Resort in May of 2004 and doing a lot of research and negotiating, here we are. We closed on the Campground and Cabins July 15th 2004.

Now everyone brings camping to us, and the best part about this venture is that everyone that comes here is on vacation and very happy.

So here we are and we look forward to meeting all our future customers and look forward to all our repeat customers’ next visit.

2011 update:
For those who do not or have not gotten our Newsletters, we had a fantastic year in 2011.  Our regulars keep coming back and supporting us which we are very greatful for, we hope to have a lot of new customers this coming year.

2013 update:
We have completed our Tornado Shelter/garage/woodwooking shop: (almost) but it is now a safe place for everyone to go during heavy winds and tornados.

Spring of 2012 we had to replace the pumps and clean our septic system, then in the winter we had to replace the pump on our well and the pipeing, so we now have super good water pressure. 

So with gas prices going down we hope everyone will get their reservations booked early for 2013.  What are you waiting for?

2016 updates:
We had our roads resealed and repainted, we had all 3 big cabins leveled and stablelized so now all the sliding doors and french doors open easily.  We put new beds and some new furniture in our cabins.  This spring we are having all the buildings repainted, we also plan on pouring new concret on some of the RV sites.  We are always trying to improve what we can, so keep booking and coming back.
