Got there late in day because of fog in the morning. Loved the view From the lookout. Haven't stayed there but looks nice and clean

We spent two nights camping in mid November, and I wish we had been able to stay longer. The campground and bath-house was clean and well maintained. We were only able to hike a couple of trails. They were fairly easy and well marked. The scenery on the waterfalls trail was gorgeous. If Georgia would let you book specific campsites... More

My husband and I went with a group in early November. Frankly, I was expecting the leaves to be over, as they were back home. To our pleasant surprise, the colors were spectacular. We hiked all of the trails, except the one requiring a permit. The trails were well maintained. If you are seeking a not-too-tough hiking trip with beautiful... More

We camped for 3 nights here in November. It is very beautiful and has great views from the top of the canyons. This is a nice place but for tent camping you definitely have to get there early and obtain a spot in the west rim campground. The other campground, on the east rim is like a wal mart parking...

We spent about 9 days here and enjoyed it very much. Lots of beautiful fall scenery, hiking trails, waterfalls and CCSP is so close to Chattanooga that we were able to easily visit Rock City, Ruby Falls, and even took in a fun ghost tour at Chattanooga Ghost Tours, Inc. We were there during the annual Mountain Arts & Crafts... More

I visited this state park a week ago to go geocaching and begin my Canyon Climbers Club trek. The views of the canyon are absolutely fantastic, it is about a 600 step climb to the bottom of canyon and then some short hikes to the water falls. Absolutely amazing loved every minute of my visit, yes even the 600 step... More

As beautiful parks go, Cloudland Canyon, on Lookout Mountain, GA has to be at the top of the list. There are two large camping areas one which is heavily wooded, wildlife, I have seen deer there, walking trails and there are many wooded trails offsite as well. I never get tired of going there.

We were on our way home to St. Louis from Columbus, Georgia going the scenic route on 27 instead of suffering the frenetic Interstate highways, and saw a sign for this park. We had never heard of it. We have an RV and enjoy camping, so we decided to take our picnic lunch here, expecting a pleasant little park with... More

A great place to hike to see 2 waterfalls in the state park. Lots of steps to climb down to the waterfalls. A fantastic place to stay overnight at the Yurt (canvass sides and top igloo) with a heater in the unit and BBQ grills outside. 2 bunk beds inside and no TV or internet. Bring your own games and...

This is really a hidden treasure. Very scenic place, not too many people around so you can really enjoy nature. Don't limit yourself to the viewpoints, but take a hike towards the waterfalls (over 500 steps down and back up) or take the west rim trail to get to the other side of the canyon.
