Living in Florida, we're constantly in search of cool campsites during the summer. Black Rock Mountain State Park at Mountain City, GA is perfect. We've been here 3 times as of this writing and this place never fails to surprise us. Sitting at over 3,500...More

This is a state park that you can chose to spend the day in or just take a quick peek. Either way, it’s worth the effort. The sheer cliffs of biotite-colored gneissic rock create some of the most amazing park lands in Georgia's Blue Ridge...More

I have been to this park several times. The view from the visitor center is amazing! There are several trails you can hike here also.

We stopped here one afternoon and enjoyed the views. We have 2 young kids so we hiked for about an hour. We bought hiking sticks from the gift shop and our first hiking medallion. It is a steep drive going up.

We drove in our 25' RV to the visitor center at the top to check out the park. It is a very steep and curvy road, but we made it up. Our diesel engine did strain a bit. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Views...More

I am writing this review out of my experience at black rock mountain. The site has several sweet breathtaking views at the park center and along the roadside. However, the back country lots are not for the faint of heart. The James E Edmondson trail...More

Some are close but not bad at all. Love the sites near the back of the campground in the turn around. We love camping there. Beautiful views, peaceful, quiet, secluded.
