Directions – Detailed version:  From intersection of Georgia Rd & Hwy 64, take 64W 11.8 miles to West Old Murphy Rd.   At exactly 6 miles, the 4-lane road you are on will turn into a 2 lane, and the road that intersects is also West Old Murphy Road.  Do not turn left here, to do so will take you up a very winding road that you do NOT want to be on.  Continue on the now-2-lane road until you come to West Old Murphy Rd.  Sign will say “Wallace Gap.” Take a left and go ¼ mile to 8301 West Old Murphy Road.  You will see the Deer Springs RV Park sign on the left.    Turn left on the gravel road just before the Deer Springs RV Park sign.

When you enter on the gravel road you will see signs that tell you to Keep Right!  (You are the green arrow.) You will merge onto a blacktop road that takes you to the park.   (See picture one)

Picture two shows the park, which will be on your left as you come up the blacktop road.  

Stop in the designated area and disconnect your toad.  There is an area (again see picture two) where you can park a trailer or car dolly.  

If you are bringing a larger trailer, please contact the office prior to your arrival so someone can assist you with parking.
