I still have them around my house. They can get annoying sometimes, like when they start making a racket under your bedroom window at 3 AM.
You mostly hear them during mating season in the spring. You can actually call them in by wistling back at them.
I live about a mile away from Lake George Escape.
If you're up here in the spring give us a shout.
Seriously though, I see from Google maps Calhoun, GA has a Johns Mountain Wildlife area. Maybe they have a good stronghold there?
I'm sure you could hear all you want camping in The Pocket on Johns Mountain. By the way, I do have full hook ups in my back yard between the shop and the pool.

The one time I heard them alot was spending the night in the Econo Lodge in Townsend TN in the early evening during the spring off in the distance to the south...
I have heard them also doing the Cades Cove dust to dark run... We was wandering around John Oliver Cabin and was hearing them just when it was turning dark. This was in July or August I think.
Most of visits are in the SEP/OCT time frame and We usually camp at Elkmont Camp but dont know if I have heard them inside that camp ground or not...

For my hole life the Whip-poor-wills would sing us to sleep from spring to summer, but as the years go by they are getting less and less, but are beeing replaced by Chuck-wills-widow, the sound is very simmilar but very different if you lissen close.
My 90yr old grandma even says (I would like to here a good old fashion Whip-poor-will) so even she can hear the difference.
i still will hear a few over the summer but i'm affraid there fading away.
go to Cornell lab of Ornitholigy and hear for yourself, i bet some of you guys are hearing a Chuck-wills-widow.
Nightjars are my favorite type of bird songs.
