Calhoun, Georgia Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Calhoun was incorporated in 1852, and named for Senator John Calhoun. The area has a rich history, especially that of the Cherokee Nation. In fact, the area is often referred to as the Land of the Cherokee.

Calhoun's best feature may be its simple beauty. Situated in the northwest corner of Georgia, Calhoun offers visitors the opportunity to slow down and absorb the magnificent rivers and rolling hills that serve as the hallmark of this region. The Chattahoochee National Forest and the John's Mountain Wildlife Management Area present the chance to fish, hike, and explore. Salacoa Creek Park lies within the original bounds of the Cherokee Nation, and is an excellent place to swim and camp. The beach area is an additional treat for children.

History buffs will enjoy the New Echota Cherokee Capitol Historic Site, which once served as the capitol of the Cherokee nation. Several original and reconstructed buildings dot the historic site. Interpretive exhibits offer insight into the people that once occupied this land. Each October, the site hosts the Cherokee Fall Festival.

Calhoun is located on I-75, about one hour northwest of Atlanta, and 45 minutes south of Chattanooga, TN.
