I have been hesitant to review Enota, not because it is not worthy of an amazing review, but purely for selfish reasons. This little gem is absolute magic and as much as I would like to keep it to myself, everyone should know about and have the opportunity to experience such a place. I have been two times in the...

Loved Enota. Very nice place, lots of hiking and beautiful waterfalls. It was a bit of a rainy couple of days, but can't fault Enota with the weather. The people there were very nice and extremely helpful. We will definitely go back. We have a fifth wheel and stayed at one of the river sites. They were very nice and... More

As mentioned in previous reviews read all the policies first! The staff is very unfriendly..Never saw anyone clean bath house or campsites after campers left..plastic, food, aluminum pie plates left in campfire areas,water pressure is sad to say the least! "Organic" eggs are 10.00 a dozen! Dog poop every where! We'll never go back...

We have camped at all of the North Georgia State and Federal Camp Grounds over the years. I must say Enota has exceeded all of our expectations. We have a full hookup camper so I cannot commit on staying in the cabins, although we have seen in the cabins; but, the full hook up and powered tent sites along the... More

LOVED THIS CAMPSITE!!! The staff was very friendly, plenty to keep everyone happy and have fun! We went Memorial Day-it was packed and still very quiet and private, made plans before leaving to return for the 4th of July, Met our camp neighbors and met them back there then!! Sound of the stream lulls you into relaxing, shared bonfires to... More

Enota is a gorgeous place. We went with another family who has an RV. We thought the motel rooms would suit for our family of 2 adults and one small child. The first room was occupied by a smoker previously and had no running water. No one was there/in office in the evening, so we had to tough it out... More

This was our first time to Enota, we were there for 5 nights with some friends that had been there in the past. We had a really good time. Our campsite (#10) was awesome, we were right on the stream and could hear the water running over the rocks at night while we were making smores. It was very peaceful.... More

We spent 5 nights here in our RV. Upon our arrival, we were a bit disappointed by the first impression of the property. We were led to believe that this was a well kept resort by the website (with spa and such). There is junk (abandoned vehicles, campers, and tractors) located throughout the property. The spa has to be booked... More

My husband and I spent 6 nights in the Bears Den cabin. We loved it. The log cabin was built in 1900, so was quirky with slightly slanted floors.. a bit musty smelling... but that's was the charm and expected. They could have cleaned it a little better. (don;t look under the bed). Bring your own towels..tiny bath towels. We... More

Enota gave me mixed feelings. I was there for two nights with my girlfriend and another couple. We stayed on the same site with two tents. The pricing was a little ridiculous, but for only two nights, it's not horrible (they seem to work on the honor system, so you can get away with saying 2 adults, even if there... More
