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.

I love this State Park. There are really nice trails several which lead to viewing areas with that overlook the mountain range or the city of Chatsworth. You can swim in the lake on top of the mountain but the water is usually a little chilly or you can rent a paddle boat in summer. There are campgrounds and picnic... More

Spent Labor Day weekend at the state park and used the campground and enjoyed the lake and surrounding area. The campground is well appointed- we had site 50 which was level and spacious and private. Clean restrooms and showers. Campground also has cable hook up. The only word of caution is that not all the sites are equal in size... More

I volunteer with the local 4H group and once a year we go up to clean up campsites and pick up trash. It's very relaxing with a trail around the spring fed lake and a sandy beach swimming area. They have cabins as well as campsites and a naturalist to do hikes on the many mountain trails.

Great park! BUT GA State Parks needs to get w/ it n let people reserve actual sites so people can guarantee that they can get sites beside friends/family... Swimming section needs to be enlarged. It was packed in the water n on the beach. Good news: nicest restrooms, nice trails, and Ranger Bob tours! The Stone Wall is very interesting!... More
