Camp Misty Mountain, established in 1971, is located in Armuchee, GA (75 miles North West of Metro Atlanta). This property has 1000 acres of fields, forests, water, and is nestled into the heart of Johns Mountain Wilderness Area. Our property is surrounded by mountains on all sides creating a pocket for our large lake in the center. We have a variety of housing options including primitive camping, canvas platform tents, and walled units, and air-conditioned cabin units.

Misty Mountain is the premier camp for older Girl Scouts in the Greater Atlanta area with a robust equestrian center specializing in Western riding, as well as a 100-acre lake for canoeing, kayaking, and sailing.

We hold a variety of events every year run by our high-quality staff. We also host many Service Unit events. We can house up to 150 people in our air-conditioned cabins, another 100 in platform tents, and with primitive camping our capacity can reach upwards of 600 people. Please see the Campsite 411 link below for details about our facility.
