We are currently at River Vista and I think is is very nice. Sites are crushed granite or marble with plenty of room and nice grass between them. It is well maintained and appears to be pretty new.

We made our reservations last September at Unicoi state park north of Helen. Made them early enough to get a full hook up site.

We'll be in Casper WY, but I expect our experience is similar to the whole path of total. When I started calling regular campgrounds in January they were all full, taking wait lists and raising rates. I saw a suggestion to try Visitor Info Centers and Tourism Boards or Chambers of Commerce in your area of interest. One I called knew that the local fairgrounds had decided to open and sell the few sites they had at normal prices, plus open up a large area to dry camping very inexpensively. Each county in your target area will have a tourism board of some sort and calls to established campgrounds will likely be a waste of time.

GA Mountain Fairgrounds in Hiawassee GA is very nice. As others stated getting a spot could be tough as this campground is full during summer most of the time due to location in the mountains and on the lake. I lived in that area for 20+ years. Kept a TT on site year round for several years.

Several choices around Helen and there is a high peak nearby (name escapes me but check the map??) that has an observatory tower on top...should be a great place to observe from.

Lost to do & see... trout fishing abounds

Brasstown Bald is the peak you are thinking of. That would be a fantastic place to observe from.

Cardinal Ridge campground in Franklin is very nice. It is a family farm on a mountain with about 6 rv spots. Very unique location.

We are lucky enough to live in Franklin and will be leaning up against the RV to see it.
Two words......Cafe REL!.......but living in Franklin, I'm sure you already know that.

I would get myself booked at the KOA in Cherokee if there are any openings. With kids, KOA"s are great fun. You may have to travel 20 min. to be in the total eclipse area toward Dillsboro but you may not, I couldn't quite see on the map. Good fishing and lots to do. If they are booked, Deep Creek in Bryson City is a good place and really any camp in Cherokee would work for you. I don't know how big your rig is but if you get desperate, you could boondock at the Casino in Cherokee for a short period. Not a lot for kids but OLD CHEROKEE is just down the street 1/2 mile with a nice little free water play area that our grandkids loved when they were 3-12 years old. good luck - mark
