Trip to Hiawasee , GA

Have any class A folks been to this area, it is near the Chattahoochee area. We are planning a trip to the area, but are concerned about the mountainous roads to get there, hoping they are passable with a Class A 40 ft motorhome. Any travel experiences in this area would be helpful to us. Thank you.

Hey, you are heading to a great place, My recommendation is you travel about 15 more miles to Blairsville and stay at Trackrock Campground (big rig friendly). Fabulous views and friendly staff! You won't be disappointed. Trackrock Campground, Cabins & Stables, Blairsville, GA

I used the Good Sam trip routing, we are coming in from the North, they are saying take 75 south to TN68 and then NC-294 to US64 , then NC69, then GA 17 and then finally to US 76. If there is a better way for a big rig, we are very much open to it. Thanks so much.

The route that GS gave you could be considered a bit of an adventure with a 40 footer on TN68 and NC294. Once you get south of Tellico Plains, TN on 68 it's a bit curvey and hilly. Others here on iRV2 may be able to give additional info on TN68 and NC294.

When we go to the area (Blairsville/Young Harris/Hiawassee) from the north on I-75, we go to Cleveland, TN exit 25 and follow Rt 64 east to Rt 411. Then south on 411 into GA. The next turn is east on 76 to Ellijay. It's 2 lane with some easy curves and some hills over to Ellijay but it's not bad and not that long. At Ellijay you will continue on 76, north/east, which becomes a 4 lane, all the way over to your destination. We take the 411 route south from Cleveland to detour around the Chattanooga area.

We are going to the area for 9 days in June (for the Highland Games in Blairsville) and 14 days in October.

I am new to this. This reply is for Tha Rooster. Did you receive? We have reservations at the Riverbend Campground. Do you come from the north also in your Revolution? what route do you generally take? We will also be towing a motorcycle on a trailer. Thanks for the help.

I'm from Gainesville and travel up 129 and go through Cleveland then17-75to Helen which is like a German village then to hiawassee I don't think it's a bad drive we pull a ford expedition a lot of weight across smokey mountains without problems.
