I didn't find anything near the Chief Ladiga Trail without adding too many miles.
I did find the Rock campground in Rockmart.
I did notice Coleman Lake in Taladaga National Forest. If I went this way I would head south just east of Piedmont.
Thanks for any suggestions.
If memory serves me, to get to Coleman Lake you will have to do some mountain biking. It's a really nice area but you'll need fat tires since the surface is dirt/gravel. It's also very hilly (real mountains) if you go to Coleman Lake from Piedmont.
I think you can camp anywhere in the Talladega National Forest (free) but you only have facilities in the designated camping areas. Here's a number for the forest ranger: 256-463-2272.
Sheriff: You have a lot of experience with bounty hunters, do you?
Mattie Ross: That is a silly question. I am here to settle my father’s affairs.
Sheriff: All alone?
Mattie Ross: I am the person for it. Mama was never any good at sums and she could hardly spell “CAT”.
