I visited recently with friends. We enjoyed the hike to the CCC-built fire tower - even if the tower wasn't accessible because of repair work. The mysterious rock wall is very interesting. It was fun to speculate who built the wall and why. And of course, the fall color was beautiful! I'll definitely be back.

This state park is near my home. I've been going here for most of my life. The park has a small lake that is perfect for lazy fishing, swimming and kayaking. There is a walking trail around the lake as well as several other hiking trails throughout the park. There are plenty of picnic areas, a good play area for... More

The area is so beautiful and peaceful. My family loves the overlook as well. The swimming area is a great family fun adventure.

Lots of hiking options (short to long, mountain to lake), great scenery and the mystery of the stone walls. A must see State Park in Georgia!

We came here for a day visit in September 2014. There is so much to do here! Hiking trails, putt-putt, a nice swimming area, picnic area, and a fishing lake. I definitely recommend the hike to the old stone fire tower and rock wall. The hike is not too strenuous and the views are amazing. Pack a picnic and spend... More

We stayed here in Oct. the park is beautiful, maintained, and well situated. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. the honest part of the stay, is the cabin was a bit "musky" old smelling, but nothing a can of Lysol didn't help. It was well stocked and clean. It is one of the most beautiful,parks we have been to!... More

We just returned from a trip to Ft. Mountain State Park in North Georgia. The facilities were clean, well kept and the staff were friendly and informative. What a beautiful place to camp. Much to do if you are an active hiker or mountain biker, or if not a great place to just sit by the campfire. There are miles... More

This is a easy park to find. while the walk to the viewing deck is not considered easy, I wouldn't say it's strenuous. There were several families visiting and that's always nice to see. You won't find a better view other than Lookout Mtn. We really enjoyed our visit

Camping - the facilities were very nice and the bath houses were very clean, they were small but there were multiple in the campground. The grade in combination with gravel made it difficult for some vehicles pulling camper trailers. Our FWD sedan had issues at times pulling into our camp site. ADA compliant. Hiking - OMG! I have lived all... More

Follow up GA 152, the winding road, to the top of the mountain and your there. Just wow. The views are so lovely in the fog of morning, the swimming lake the highest swimming lake in Georgia, clean, camping, bathrooms on site and BBQ grills. Take the time to visit this little gem of a park atop of fort mountain.
