The Lake Winfield Scott Recreation Area is a recreational day-use area and campground near Suches, Georgia at the site where a Civilian Conservation Corps camp was located in the 1930’s, and some of the facilities (the beach bathhouse; maybe other parts) were built for that camp. I had heard that there were Yellow Ladyslippers blooming in the vicinity, so I spent two nights there 05/18/2016 and 05/19/2016. While there is only a single site available with electricity, this is definitely a campground worthy of your consideration if you can get that site, or especially if you don’t need electricity. While there are some issues with the bathhouses, the campground and campsites are nice, and the location is superb.
