We were disappointed that the visitor center was closed for remodeling. Parking here is awful, it's hard to get in and out of. The lanes are very narrow with limited amount. If you do find parking, it's worth the hassle, because the hiking is beautiful...More

Great hikes of all types. From easy on paved roads to sweat inducing hill hikes, this park has it all. Great view of Atlanta's skyline. A lot of historical significance.

Amazing to see the difficulties that the land posed never mind opponents trying to kill you. Gives an appreciation of what these young men on both sides went through. Only downside was the museum being closed.

there is a parking lot, guess it depends on the size of the R/V. Something under 25 feet is probably ok.
