Just passing thru.

Passing thru, it looked interesting. Super site. Level, clean, loads of hiking trails. It's on top of Lookout mountain. We will come again and again.

The lady running the entrance booth noticed my engine was over heating and pointed it out while offering tips on what to do about it. I did the west rim loop, in total it took a little over 1.5 hours. I'm not huge on nature, but I can objectively say that it's probably considered really pretty. The hike is nothing... More

This is a full service state Park. They have camping sites, yurts and cabins along with many more activities than I've seen at most state parks. The evening the we went there was a band playing in the park, a scheduled escorted 1 hour trail walk at dusk among other hosted activities. There was mention of hiking down to and... More

Enjoyed the trail around the parking area to have several different view points from gorge on nice easy paced trail with a slight hike on one view. The main trailhead going to the opposite rim and down to falls are all nicely maintained. The 600 steps to the bottom will make your knees and calves tremble and burn in your... More

If planning to camp, reserve a spot in the West Rim campground. It has a shady tree canopy and the camping spots were not crowded together, there was a buffer of vegetation between most spaces. Showers and restrooms were very clean. In contrast, the East Rim campground had few trees and camping spots very close together. If you have an... More

This park is one of my favorites and I recommend it to everyone. Sadly, the lack of rain this year has resulted in the falls not being nearly as spectacular as they normally are. If you plan on taking the hike to the falls, come with plenty of water as while the walk down is easy, the walk back up... More

We went to Cloudland Canyon for the first time at the end of July and rented a cottage/cabin. The trip was all-around fantastic, from the abundance of trails to knowledgable staffers (hey Stephanie!). The cabin was clean, fully stocked with linens and kitchen supplies, and very comfortable. The trails are well-maintained and marked. The visitors center offers a variety of... More

Great hiking for all abilities. The 5 mile rim trail provides wonderful views of the canyon. Or you can hike down (and up) some 600 stairs to the canyon floor past waterfalls. We didn't do the falls, since they weren't running due to the drought. But the hikes in the upper part of the park were wonderful. It's a well... More

Beautiful waterfall is worth the trip by itself. Suggest fall or spring as the summers are very HOT. Trails are easy to walk.Campsites leave something to be desired even though they were clean.

We stayed 4 days in the campground at this park. We were on the East Rim because it is closer to the trailheads and the Main Overlook. There is not much shade, but the sites are nice and elevated. The West Rim campground was more secluded and very shady. The views from the overlook were incredible and a very short... More
