Tommie Alexander was born and raised just a few miles from where the campground is located today. In 1943, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and volunteered to fight for his country in WWII where he proudly served in Germany until his discharge in 1952. In 1952, he brought his bride, Martha, back to Union County and purchased the 250 acre farm that would become Trackrock Campground. Tommie & Martha farmed cattle, chickens, hogs and various crops including Union County’s beloved sorghum; and raised their family of four children, Mary, Linda, Frank and Sonya.
With the incredible vision and foresight in seeing a future of tourism in the then economically challenged farming community in the North Georgia Mountains, in 1966, Tommie and Martha, turned their family farm into an 18-site campground for tent camping and a small riding stable. The Alexanders have continued to make improvements for over 50 years. Today the campground has 100 shaded, level, private campsites for tents, pop-ups and RVs. There are also five fully furnished cabins for those who would rather rock on the porch than rough it. Trackrock Stables, under the ownership of Sonya Alexander, has grown to 60 horses (give or take!) for trail riding, horse camp, lesson horses and horses boarded on the property.
The Alexander family continues to own and operate their family-oriented campground today and looks forward to bringing you and your family many years of wonderful memories.
