Cooper’s Creek Wildlife Management Area

Cooper’s Creek Wildlife Management Area is located in the southern Appalachian Mountains, 100 miles (160 km) north of Atlanta, Georgia. The area encompasses more than 30,000 acres and lies inside the Chattahoochee National Forest. An abundance of wildlife can be found in the Cooper’s Creek area, including bear, turkey and deer, all of which can be hunted in season. Primitive campsites are available for those wishing to stay overnight. An EarthSky visitor describes Cooper’s Creek Wildlife Management Area as “one of the few places in north Georgia that has a low light pollution rating.”
