Hanging Dog sits right on the edge of Hiawassee Lake, but don’t expect lakeside camping here. While you can see the water from some of the sites, none of them are right on the lakeshore. There’s a boat launch nearby and an exceptional mountain bike trail system right down the road. Only a few miles from downtown Murphy, this is a great location, just don’t expect a hot shower at the end of the day. There are no shower facilities on the property.
