Before the Chattooga was declared a Wild and Scenic River, campers could drive all the way to Burrells Ford Campground. Since then, a protective corridor has been established, effectively cutting off direct auto access to the campground. This has had mixed results: it has limited the use of the campground but has cut maintenance as well. The short walk may deter some tent campers, but you can guarantee that no RVs will ever be at Burrells Ford.

Backpack in to the primitive sites along the river and you will enjoy a truely wonderful area. Remember to hang anything that would attract a black bear 10 feet up between two trees. Primitive campsite directly on the Chattogga are nice, but check out the sites that are along King Creek. You might take a liking to them, as I did...
