Camping at Doll Mountain (North Georgia)

This is our FAVORITE campground (well, we've only been to TWO! LOL)
Doll Mountain at Carter's Lake in  Ellijay, GA.
They are only open beginning of April - end of October.

From their website:

Doll Mountain Campground is located in the north Georgia mountains about 70 miles north of Atlanta on Carters Lake.

The sparkling waters and rugged shoreline provide a beautiful surrounding for a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities including camping, hiking, boating, mountain biking, fishing, hunting and picnicking.


The drive up the mountain is VERY CURVY!! LOTS of turns! Just watch this short video of the drive


Here we are nestled in our campsite

Here are some of the scenery views....

Here is the boat ramp

 View from our campsite

The view from my bedroom window (I was laying in bed taking this picture)
Feels like you are in a "tree house "

The "little dogs" have their own stroller...Aren't they cute???

Alli likes to lay around camp

We reserved a spot each time (Spots 27-33 are our favorite except they have NO sewer hookup) BUT there are four spots right up front that are "first come, first serve" that have full sewer hook up. We have been "lucky" both times we camped and got the very far left spot, so we have the woods on one side.

Last time we camped my Sister and Brother-in-law camped next to us, so that worked out really good. We shared the cooking :)


The pad for the camper is paved. The campsite included a picnic table, a grill, lantern hanger and a campfire ring.

 Some of the other spots have a large wood deck with a bench all the way around.

Father's Day with the Dogs

This Father's Day we will celebrate our special fur babies. We consider each one a special gift.
God did not grant us the gift of children . But when he allowed us the opportunity to have dogs in our life he gave us the ability to nurture, love and protect them as any parent would.  For us the only difference is our children walk on 4 legs and are covered with lots of hair.
They have been our greatest gift.

My Sister-in-law made this floral arrangement for me when we got this new dining table (off Craig's List!)

I got these dog plates just recently at Tuesday Morning. (4.99 ea - 60% off!)
HERE is that post if you missed it


I collect these little dogs..some are bookends,

 The little guy in the bottom right corner is a nut cracker!

Do you have a special dog in your life? I'd LOVE to hear about them.

P.S. I saw this on an email today :)

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
· When loved ones come home, always run to greet them;
· Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride;
· Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure DELIGHT.
· Take naps;
· Stretch before rising;
· Run, romp, and play daily;
· Thrive on attention and let people touch you;
· Avoid biting when a simple growl will do;
· On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass;
· On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree;
· When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body;
· Delight in the simple joy of a long walk;
· Be loyal;
· Never pretend to be something you're not;
· If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it;
· When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently;
