Review of Georgia’s Black Rock Mountain State Park This is an excellent place to camp! We stayed in the cabin area. The cabins are furnished with linen, pillows, blankets and the kitchen has cutlery, forks, spoons and knives. There are also kitchen gadgets supplied, to include a wine bottle opener. Kitchen appliances are a full size refrigerator, full size range and stove, dishwasher, 12 cup coffee pot (bring coffee filters), full size over the stove microwave with heat vent option, an electric skillet with lid and a two slice electric toaster. There’s a full bath and a half bath, the half bath being in one of the two bedrooms. There are two queen or king size beds in each bedroom. No tv’s in the bedrooms. Being in the extreme north Georgia mountains, the living room has a propane gas fireplace and a in the wall mounted gas heater. Each cabin has a large back deck with rocking chairs (4) and a small table. Cabins 3 and 4 back decks have an unobstructed view of the valley below where you are...from 3,500 something feet. The road leading to the park is winding and steep. There are 45 degree and 90 degree switchback curves. Going up, BEWARE of vehicles coming down this two lane black top road. Going up, you can leave your transmission in normal driving mode. WARNING...Going down hill, out of the park, to save your brake system from getting too hot and boiling your brake fluid, turn your automatic transmission “over drive” off (if you can) and switch to the lowest gear. OVER HEATED BRAKE FLUID DIES NOT OPERATE YOUR BRAKES PROPERLY AND CAN CAUSE LOSS OF VEHICLE BRAKING! I use “1st”...that way your engine acts as a “brake” and you will not have to use your brakes as much. Those with manual transmissions...you know what to do. VALUE ADDED OPTION!!! The “Foxfire Museum” is nearby. BOTTOMLINE...give Georgia’s Black Rock Mountain State Park a go. You won’t be disappointed!

It’s a nice park. Visitor center is on top on top of mountain with good view. Hours for visor center are limited due to covid. Restrooms are clean. We had a little difficultly finding directions for Tennessee Rock Trail due to lack of signs on the road. Trail is about 2.2 miles round trip and takes a little over 1 hour for the whole trip. I would call it moderate. Nothing special, views are ok. We enjoyed it, but again views are the same from the stops on the road. So, if you can’t walk, you can still drive in top of the mountain and stop at few marked places and see views.

Really enjoyed peaceful, quiet and scenic mountaintop camp. Narrow winding road up mountain. Staying on pavement is a must as shoulder drops off about 6”. Maneuvering large rigs is tight, but we did see a class A. We were in a 32’ 5th Wheel and used extra caution maneuvering. Plenty of hiking trails. Impressed at the Handicap tent campsites the park had. Beautiful views of the valley and twinkling lights at night.

Stayed in well appointed cottage 6 with sunset view. Appreciated the WiFi, well stocked kitchen and ample towel supply. Stayed 5 days and did all the hikes. Walked up for sunset at Tennessee Rock from our cabin after having done the full trail the day before. Edmonds trail was wonderful but “most difficult” is accurate. We took our lunch to eat at top- be sure to go all the way to end to get best overlook- it has stone and wire railing around it - we almost missed it. Take lots of water, hiking books and a walking stick - narrow steep trail with plenty of beautiful resting points along the way, especially by the streams and waterfalls. We took 6 hours. This is a very well maintained park with well marked trails - lots of overlooks and picnic areas.
