Quietly tucked away in the North Georgia mountains, Hamilton Gardens at Lake Chatuge is a 33 acre woodland botanical paradise with magnolias, azaleas, wild flowers, rhododendron, over 3,000 plants, art, and much more. Parking was free, but there is a box for the entry fee and donations. The paths were easy walking. The parking lot was quite large. But to get there the two RV Gypsies had to drive through the Georgia Mountain Fair entryway (shown below)

Below: Flowers -- Unfortunately, this was the day after torrential rain and winds came through the area, and many of the flowers were no longer in the best of shape. However, despite this, the two RV Gypsies enjoyed the flowers in the gardens.
