I think I have found the perfect outdoor campground for taking a date. Everything about this place speaks romance. Taccoa Valley Campground has tent sites where you can sit up by a romantic cool evening mountain campfire listening to romantic music of your choosing while listening to the rushing mountain waters of the Taccoa River rush just below you.
The campground lighting is dim, and the atmosphere has an excellent deep forest quiet feel, not like so many of the heavily commercialized camp areas around Atlanta. The bathhouses have just been remodeled with pine walls, and nice high-grade ceramic tiles, and are absolutely spotless, and the showers are nice and hot.
If you and your date think trying a little trout fishing would be interesting, this is the spot. The average size rainbow trout coming out of these deep waters is around 17”. There are sections along the campground tent site areas that are shallow enough to be waded, but deep enough for a decent wading challenge.
If you and your date don’t want to tackle the trout adventure with waders, there is a nice little concrete patio just below the campgrounds pavilion where you and your date can sit out with a awesome mountain view, and fish a long deep area where large trout are abundant. I actually caught my biggest trout here measuring in at a whopping 19”. The trout fishing here is excellent, and you can almost count on catching enough for an excellent grilled trout dinner.
If you and your date need a tad more excitement, the campground also offers kayak, raft, and tube rentals with shuttle service allowing you and your date to take a nice long scenic mountain trip by river winding down the beautiful Taccoa River.
The camp store/office sales a variety of camping supplies as well as fish bait.
All the tent sites are equipped with a fire ring, picnic table, water, and electricity. Sites 1-7 are directly on the Taccoa River, and this stretch of the river is rushing enough so that you and your date an enjoy a good nights sleep to the sounds of the river rushing by your tent. All the tent sites are shaded enough to be comfortable even during the summer months.
As far as food goes, lunch and dinner are served daily a mere minutes down the street from the campground at the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant. Or for a lighter less expensive meal, the River Rest Restaurant is located just under the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant. As far as breakfast goes, I would suggest for now taking something to cook. The breakfast options right around the campground are not too dependable, but you have three options, ask the hosts at the campground if any of the places nearby are still serving breakfast, drive into the town of Blu Ridge about 15 minutes from your campground for a awesome Country Style breakfast buffet at The Village Restaurant, or bring your own breakfast items to cook.
