offroad camping

i'm looking for a place to go offroading and camping. ideally something you can wheel out to to go camping. at a lake or something. nothing to hard. i got my truck and a land rover and a rodeo. all have 4wheel. i'm a bit worried bout the rodeo, anywho. i heard of a place called sweetwater, just can't find any info. anyone heard of this place or have any other suggestions for placing to go wheeling and camping? thanks oh... i'm in alpharetta. so something in that general area would be nice. i'd be willing to travel a little bit for a good place.

Go N of Helen on state 75.
Turn left on Russell Scenic Hwy
Turn right on 1st road (starts out paved, turns to gravel)

Low Gap campground - watch for bears.
