Redneck Beach- Real or Fake?

If you're in the Athens area you may have heard about this so called myth of Redneck Beach. This beach is near an apartment complex called River Club on Macon HWY in the middle of the woods. Sounds pretty sketchy but we decided to go on an adventure and find this beach in the middle of Athens, Georgia. We didn't even know where it was located, so we just used Google Maps to help us and before Google told us we had arrived, we seen three cars parked on the side of the road. We pulled over behind them and decided to start walking in the woods. We were lost for about twenty minutes and we didn't have a signal on any of our devices. We were about to give up until we heard bursts of echoing laughter. It sounded like children were playing tag with all of the screams and laughs so we followed the echoes. We walked through thick tall grass and eventually we heard more than just laughter- we heard sounds of a waterfall. We ripped through the last of the tall grass and before our very eyes was Redneck Beach!
