Morganton Point Recreation Area is located in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest on the shoreline of Blue Ridge Lake. It is the only developed campground located on the lake, a 3290 acre Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) reservoir. The nearest town of Blue Ridge is approximately 8 miles from the campground. The campground is managed by the Cradle of Forestry and camphosts.
We camped here in October 2018 in our Travato van and loved being in the woods. We had no problems in our van but this campground is not really big rig friendly. There are a few tight turns. The sites beginning with 22 are not very level and only a few will accommodate a big rig. Most of the sites are reserve only but sites 31-37 are first come, first served. There are two pull thru sites (9 and 13) and those are the only ones really facing the water and they are both paved. The sites on the loop with lower numbers are bigger and will accommodate the bigger rigs.
The campground was quiet and the sites are well spaced apart. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed exploring the town of Blue Ridge and having lunch at Mercier Apple Orchard.
