One of our favorite campgrounds we experienced on a 6 week trip. Facilities are well maintained and several options for hiking, but the views from the East and West Rim, just amazing!! Park offers several options to stay during your visit, tenting, RV, Yurts or cabin.

Went here with 3 adults and 2 teen girls. Started out hiking to the falls and then continued to the blue trail. It was about 6 miles total. Lots of stairs coming back up! Was pretty and a moderate hike.

We went to Chattanooga and had enough of its touristy attractions. Instead of Rock CIty, we went to explore nature, and had a wonderful time at this state park- a canyon, two waterfall hikes- the Cherokee one is shorter, about 200 steps each way, about 0.5 mile each way.

We've been very impressed with all the GA state parks so far and this one didn't let us down either. Location-wise, this one is just under 2 hours from the Atlanta area. If you're already NW of Atlanta, then the drive is not bad at all for a day of hiking and nature. If you like camping, there are ALOT... More

This is a beautiful park, with lots of hiking trails. We have a 38' fifth wheel and a large dually truck, so I was little concerned about the two switchbacks, but we didn't have a problem. At the check in the ranger convinced us to go to the east rim and we found a pretty decent site that was easy... More

This wa a great spot for hiking anywhere from one to five miles. We started by going to see Hemlock falls. The stairs were challenging but it was worth it. After lunch we hit the west rim trail for some breathtaking views. I want to come back in winter when the trees lose thir foliage ; the views could be... More

We visited Cloudland Canyon in May. The weather was lovely and the views beautiful. There is a path with a great many steps (think lighthouse) that splits in 2 directions to waterfalls we walked to Hemlock falls and followed the path along the cascade downstream- beautiful. There is also a path around that'll with amazing overlooks. The trails require about... More

The caves are never open. Even in giid weather they restrict days the caves are open. These parks belong to the public and should be open during daylight hours during spring through fall.
