Spring Coming Soon 5/16/2013
Trout Season Starts March 29th

We are anxiously awaiting the end of winter.  Once the fear of freezing weather has passed, our gardening urges will be fulfilled.  We have been working hard sprucing up the campground in anticipation of the opening of spring camping season.  The tulips are poking up and our variety of old hardwood trees - red and white oak, maple, sweet gum, hickory and more are still bare but are ready to burst forth into spring greenery.

Check out all there is to do and see in White County including Alpine Helen and the Sautee Nacoochee Valley. There is something for everyone - hiking trails, waterfalls, kayaking and canoeing, vineyards and tasting rooms, folk potters, gold panning, historical sites, artists and craftsman, great food, and our spectacular natural beauty is visible around every turn.

We offer full hook-up sites for your travel trailer, motorhome or 5th wheel camper. Some of our RV sites are right on the fishing pond and all sites are shady. Many of our tent camping sites are on Jenny's Creek or the fishing pond. Tent sites are separated from the RV sites. We also have sites perfect for your pop-up camper.

Interesting Fact: A Jenny is a female mule. Long ago, the mules used in the area's gold mining and timbering were kept along our creek. In time, it became known as Jenny's Creek.

Thanks to all our wonderful camping guests. Hope to see you again soon.

 
New Wi-Fi Is Here 5/2/2013
Changes for the Better

Good news for those campers who can't live without their link to the internet - we have just installed a new Wi-Fi system that will be available to all campsites, even the tent sites on the creek.  It is a big improvement over our old system.

Free Wi-Fi is available at the office or on the patio in front of the office.  It ls a much broader bandwidth than what we had.  If you only need to check your email or look-up something on the internet, you will have great access for free here at or by the office.

For an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly fee you will be able to purchase Wi-Fi service that will be fast enough to handle any of your needs - watching movies, uploading or downloading pictures and of course, email, Facebook, and web browsing.

We hope this new system will better meet your needs.

Rivers 4/18/2013
To Paddle or Float
We are lucky to have the beautiful Chattahoochee River meadner through much of White County before it heads south into and out the other side of Lake Lanier.

Nearby are the Soque River, the Etowah River and the Chestatee River.  Just a short, scenic drive from Jenny's Creek Campground are the Ocoee River, the Toccoa River, and the Nantahala River.

Whether you like to canoe or kayak, float on an intertube or speed through the rapids on a raft, all of these activities are available in the glorious North Georgia mountains.

Here are some website with more information about the rivers:

What a fabulous way to see the natural beauty of the North Georgia mountains during the day and then spend the night at Jenny's Creek Campground.

KEEPING FOOD FRESH

 

Tips for Food Storage

The next time you go on a camping trip, take note of these tips to keep food fresh :

The Art of Freezing - an effective way to preserve food. Before you leave for your camping trip, freeze meat and vegetables then store with ice in a cooler. The frozen blocks will act as ice at the start of your trip.

Separate Coolers - To better handle your food, bring three coolers with you. In the first cooler, put meats and other food to be cooked. The second cooler is for snacks and beverages, and the third is for leftovers (skip this if you can guarantee no leftovers). The reason for separate coolers is to keep the raw meats from contaminating your ready-to-eat-and-drink goods. The less you open coolers the longer ice lasts and the frozen food stays frozen. Drinks and snacks are wanted much more often so it makes sense to keep them separate. This has the added benefit of keeping things easier to find.

Prep Meat - pre-cook or rub or marinate in advance for longer freshness. Here are a couple methods:

  • Boiling - boil meat in water, salt, pepper, and other spices. Not only does this prolong the storage life of the meat, it also cuts down food preparation time when camping.

  • Dry rubbing - rub meat with salt, herbs, and spices. Salt is the cheapest preservative, and this process enhances the taste of the meat.

  • Marinating - marinate grilled meats ahead of time. The acid in the marinade helps preserve meat longer and lets the juice spread evenly through the meat.

Plan Your Menu - easy to spoil food, such as dairy, meat, and produce, to be consumed first. Cook only enough to avoid leftovers.

REPURPOSING COMMON ITEMS

Repurposing is finding an alternative use for an object rather than discarding it and is an environment-friendly practice. It can also be a valuable habit for campers due to limited space. There are a lot of ways to recycle everyday items to cut the cost of living while on the road and to minimize the number of things we have to take when camping. Try repurposing on your next camping excursion to see just how useful it really is. Here are a few examples to try. 

Empty Liquid Detergent Bottles

Bottles of liquid detergent are often not really as empty as we think. They still have a lot of soap sticking to their sides, so use them to set up a washing station when camping?

Fill these empty bottles with water to make diluted liquid detergent. When you set up camp, place the bottles with a roll of paper towels or hand towel and a basin for collecting water. Use the water for washing hands or cleaning dishes.

Newspaper Sleeves

Collect the plastic newspaper sleeves and use them as disposable work gloves or handy travel bags for wrapping items such as kitchen utensils, toothbrushes, and lotion bottles.

Old Shower Curtains

Anything you can use a tarp for, you can use an old shower curtain – under your tent, to protect items from rain or dew or for spreading on the ground for picnics. They can protect your things as effectively as tarp can.

Orange Peels

After eating oranges, don't throw away the peels. The natural oil on orange peels is an excellent bug repellant. Rub the inside of the peel against your exposed skin and place the orange peels you have collected near your sleeping spot before retiring for the night. You're sure to have a good night's sleep free from mosquito and other bug bites.

Empty Prescription Bottles

In case of emergency, people often bring small items such as nails, thumbtacks, and string with them when camping. Store your small items in empty prescription bottles before chucking them in your utility or camp box.
