Visited here while in the area; had always seen pictures of the waterfalls on Ga State Park sites and was excited. As I came in, I stopped at the ranger station/gift shop....wow! They've recently renovated this shop as well as expanding it...it was very impressive! The staff was very nice and helpful. The store carried alot more than the usual... More

On our third trip here, we brought our extended family and this place is as nice here as it was when we first discovered it. In fact, I think it was the nicest this time around because the weather was nice and the park wasn't crowded. When we came the first time, it was cold and foggy so we didn't... More

This is a beautiful State Park just outside Trenton, GA. Don't look at a map or trust your GPS if it doesn't have you going to Trenton via I 59, there are lots of narrow roads leading to the back from other directions. This park has beautiful views, great hiking, but you do need to wear proper hiking gear, stay... More

We decided to go here after seeing the park featured on Georgia Traveler (PBS show). It isn't exactly easy to get there from Atlanta but it was worth the trip. It is in the northwest corner of the state. We spent a couple of hours hiking around. The waterfall trail was nice but there are a lot of stairs. I... More

I can't wait to go back. This place has the most gorgeous views! I think the best time to visit would be the Fall season and I will be going back. We just made it a half a day trip but it would be a great spot for camping because there is so much to see. One tip: The hike... More

We took a slight detour on our trip from NC to TN to visit and were glad that we did. The park staff has built extensive trails with metal stairs to make the hikes safer and easier and there is much to see along the way. We came to view the waterfalls, but were also impressed with the vistas, the... More

My family and I went to Cloudland today for Fathers Day and it was the most perfect day. Helpful signs, railing to hold onto, and plenty of rest areas! The waterfalls were beautiful and definitely worth the sweat- didn't want to leave! We didn't stay the night but I'm planning on it soon!

We were looking for a different park for day hikes and I believe the other one was closed or we just couldn't find it and stopped in driving by this one. It was our favorite part of our trip to Chattanooga. Climbed hundreds of stairs and hiked for hours in the rain, loved the views of canyons and waterfalls and... More

Had a very nice weekend at Cloudland Canyon State Park. A group rented several backcountry camping spots. Those were very aqeduate. The backcountry loop is about 2 miles long but you don't have to hike all the way back. In my opinion it doesn't really matter where you hike on the backcountry trail. It was very quiet except for the... More

Beautiful park with various hiking trails. There is a parking fee of five dollars. If you just want to hike, you have the option to park at the main park area on top of Lookout Mountain, or you can park at the foot of the mountain and walk up to the park. The hike can be strenuous to those of... More
