Anderson Creek Featured Sites
The Ridge and Creek Preserve
The lay of the land determines the homesites of three acres or more located in two “settlements”- The Ridge and Spring Camp.
The Ridge sites have outstanding views from a two hundred acre mountain next to the Anderson Creek Preserve, a mile long, seventy-five acre community park that includes the original homestead ruins of the Anderson and Mulkey families. There are several trails along Anderson Creek and Anderson Lake and a two mile loop trail around The Ridge through laurel and rhododendron thickets beside spring creeks.
Owners also enjoy the exclusive use of a stone pavilion and bathhouse, primitive camp sites, an outdoor fire pit, Adirondack chairs and picnic tables beside Anderson Creek. Anglers have a private trout stream for catch and release fly fishing for rainbow and brown trout. Bass and bream are plentiful in Anderson Lake.
A conservation easement with the Georgia Land Trust protects The Creek Preserve.
Spring Camp sites are located over more than three hundred acres next to The Ridge Preserve with trails, spring creeks, hardwood forests, homestead ruins, pastures, and meadows. The botanically rich terrain includes wild azalea, ferns, and laurel and rhododendron thickets. A conservation easement protects The Ridge Preserve, a mile-long ridge that joins the Chattahoochee National Forest at Mountain Camp, a community park at our highest elevation. The Spring Camp Barn has five stalls and a ten acre pasture for the equestrian.
The Bunkhouse, a 1,400 square foot guesthouse at Mountain Camp sleeps nine, has a full size kitchen, dining room, entertainment center and fitness equipment.
Whatever draws you to the mountains- the crisp mountain air, the big woods, inspiring views, clear, spring-fed creeks or the Appalachian culture of music and crafts- you’ll find it at Anderson Creek Retreat.
