Where the Appalachians begin there’s a little slice of heaven.

Arriving at Camp Mac the first time,

you wind along Cheaha Road until, suddenly, you round a bend to find yourself looking at what appears to be a quaint village of forest-green buildings arranged on each side of the road and tucked into a glade of graceful pines. Far below you, twin lakes glint through the trees. This is Camp Mac, unspoiled by the decades, immaculately kept, and perfectly equipped to provide memories that will last a lifetime.

Location and Facilities

The Cabins

Where We Sleep

Absent of the typical double-decker bunk beds, every cabin features built-in single cabin beds hand-crafted of 3/4-inch plywood, with storage compartments underneath – eliminating the need for foot-lockers. Tucked into the shade of stately old pines, the cabins require only attic and ceiling fans to be cool enough to require a blanket at bedtime! Restroom and shower facilities have tile floors and plenty of hot water! But living quarters tell only part of the story.
