You might want to try checking out a site called North Georgia .com
Georgia's Premier Recreation and Adventure Website
It has a lot of information about parks , tourism etc in Georgia and gives information on how to get there.
One of my favorite areas of the National Park Property in Georgia is Cooper's Creek in Fannin and Union Counties.
I am not sure what the regulations are about shooting in these areas , so you may want to check with the parks service to see what they are here in Georgia.

I know of 2 primitive type campgrounds but I do believe it's against the law to shoot at either of these places because they are part of the Chattahoochee National Forest.The 2 I speak of are Andrews Cove and Boggs Creek(Boggs Creek has been shut down til further notice because of storm damage)Both of these campgrounds are primitive so no electricity.I just stayed at Andrews Cove at the beginning of July(this year) and it was very relaxing.It has a creek that runs down the middle of the campgrounds.

Apparently I was wrong about discharging weapons in the Chattahoochee National Forest,I just always assumed it was against the law.Your post got me interested in finding out what the exact law was.Here is a link to the firearms guide for the Chattahoochee and Oconee National Forests.

Remember when searching that the Cohutta Wilderness and the (Very Small) Town of Cohutta are two seperate locations. This has confused many a traveler and GPS system.

There are a lot of nice campgrounds. We like going to state parks. They tend to be crowded and the campsites are close to each other. Black Top Mountain is cool in the summer and has some great trails. Unicoi has some nice sites and great trails. There's also a very good lake with a beach, canoe and paddleboat rentals. Check out the Georgia State Park guide and site on line. A lot of good info on all parks.
