Georgia's highest state park encompasses some of the most outstanding scenery in Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.  Roadside overlooks provide spectacular 80-mile vistas, and four hiking trails lead visitors past wildflowers, streams, small waterfalls and lush forests. Visitors enjoy the summit visitor center for its views, gift shop and picnic tables.

This was the first time we have visited and we will be coming back to camp. Have always been impressed with Georgia State Park campgrounds, but this place was gorgeous! Park staff and camp hosts obviously take a great amount of pride in this place. There are cabins, camping, a couple stores/information centers, a 17 acre lake, and hiking trails. And the vistas are stunning. Will love coming again when we aren't covered up by rain and clouds, but was still beautiful.

First time going and I loved it. The trip here was unplanned and I don't regret it. $5 parking fee and the trails can be tedious and narrow at times but they're worth it to see nature at its finest. There were unique plants and as you walk around on the trails (I walked the Tennessee trail) I ended up getting lost but eventually found my way. The two employees I ran into at the store at the top were so kind even though it was time for closing. They smiled, carried on a conversation and looked like they took pride in their job. The views were beautiful swell. I highly recommend. UPDATE: I walked the 7.2 mile trail today. If you want exercise then it's worth it. Unique nature as always but the views are not too well only one great view which was lookout mountain.

This was an overnight spot as we were traveling north. We were hauling our travel trailer and the drive up was STEEP! Not only is the road steep but it is narrow and winding - just be warned. We made it no problem but it was a shock for us used to boring roads. It happened to be off season so the rustic store was not open. The main park store was open and the girls inside were great! The views were amazing, the campsites were good but again VERY steep. We were a bit afraid on making the little circle at the campground. This place is not really for large RV's.

Don't miss this place! Totally worth going to. Parking is $5, which I didn't have on hand, but thankfully you can pay at the visitors center. There's several different hikes you can take. They're pretty easy too. We went with two kids. If they're small enough, you can totally wear them and have a great hike. Or they can walk and you can carry/wear them if they get tired. To go to the falls there are stairs, not a lot, totally doable. You could even pack a lunch and have a snack. However, there are plenty of picnic tables at your disposal for eating at.

First time camping and it was a great experience. A smooth transition since they offer camping sites with water amd electricity with a fire pit. Camped out in a tent, trails were walking distance... Definitely coming back.
