We have never been to Vogel State Park before and we’re very pleased with the facility. Vogel is located in the Chattahoochee National Forest in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The park covers 233 acres including a small lake. The park has a nice campground with many sites large enough to accommodate 40 foot RVs. All the RV sites have water and electric and there is a dump station near the campground entrance. There are also several rental cabins of various sizes. The park is open year round, but most of the lake activities are only available during the summer months.

We came to north Georgia to hike. We had hoped to have three days here, now we only have two. There are 17 miles of trail within the park, but we probably will concentrate our efforts elsewhere. If we have some time tomorrow afternoon we may hike the short trail around the lake.

Tomorrow we plan to hike to the top of Blood Mountain. It’s only two and a half miles, but we haven’t done any mountain hiking in a long time. I expect that climb will get our attention.

That’s it for today. Thanks for tagging along.
