I am new to the climbing arena and am just now getting into outdoor climbing and am looking for a good place to climb and camp in Georgia and was looking for some good advice from some of the more senior climbers for advice.

I don't know why you need advice from senior members specifically. If you just mean you are older and need easy approaches and climbing, then I would suggest Currahee and Mount Yonah. Yonah's approach is a bit long and strenuous, but has by far the easiest climbing in Ga. Currahee is a much easier approach, and the slab wall has some easier climbing as well. Currahee is much more conducive to top-roping, while Yonah has a lot of easy sport and trad climbs most of which should be led. The road to Currahee is USFS land, meaning you can camp at any of the pull-offs or any where at least 100' from the road and 50' from a trail. Yonah will be similar, except you start the hike in and look for sites, no camping along the road as it is residential.

I guess that came out wrong. I was referring to senor climbers as to people who have been climbing for a while. But easy is good for me at the moment I am a recovering motorcycle rider that is recovering from a bad accident so I am trying not to go too extreme and stick to the baby stuff.

I have had a lot of people who keep telling me about the same places over and over and you cant camp there. I keep getting referred to I think its called boat rock and I was told that there is no place to camp near there.

theres no camping at boatrock. you can camp on pigeon mountain and climb at lost wall or rocktown. i recommend driving a little west and checking out horse pens 40 in alabama.
