Situated at 3,640 feet, Black Rock Mountain State Park is Georgia’s highest park and is often home to much cooler weather than the rest of the state, offering relief for much of the year. RVers should check the weather in Clayton, GA before embarking up the steep, winding roads on icy days. With over 50 campsites and 10 cabins in Black Rock Mountain State Park, every kind of camper will find comfort.
Though the park is named for Black Rock Mountain, it is also home to four other peaks, topping out at over 3,000 ft each. Five different hiking trails can be found within the park, providing access to the diverse wilderness of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Hop on the newest trail, the Norma Campbell Cove Trail, or opt for something more traditional like the Eastern Continental Divide. No matter what you choose, the views are sure to impress.
Be prepared for beauty!! The walk in tent sites are the best way to go. Most of these sites are separated from each other to give privacy. Some of the sites are overlooking a town and you're able to see the lights at night. The campground and bathrooms are kept clean and well stocked. The hosts and staff are very friendly and helpful! I liked the place so much that I went back after few weeks.
We had fun camping here and driving around on the fire roads while in Clayton. The view from the top of the mountain is beautiful!
Would recommend only camping here in a tent or SMALL camper. We took our 26ft tt up in the dark. Read a longer review with photos on the link. https://imaginecamper.com/2018/05/14/black-rock-mountain-state-park/
We booked out spot a year in advance to view the beautiful solar eclipse that occurred last year.We gathered our family and about 20 of our friends for a fantastic weekend.It is completely private.There is an outhouse for both genders.There was a cabin with electricity but no water.the spigot is right outside.We had enough space for hammocks,tents,.We were able to let the dogs roam. I honestly loved this camp and I can't wait to go again.Even though it was scorching out.We went two days not realizing it.We had lovely breezes and tree coverage.The top of the mountain was the most incredible place to view the eclipse. The experience was so phenomenal..
This has been one of our family favorites for years. We are tent campers and we're always able to set up camp and not feel like we're hemmed in by motorhomes. There are some great hiking trails on the mountain and some beautiful vista views. The ranger led activities have always been enjoyed by my kids.
While your camping here, be sure to visit the Foxfire Museum that you'll pass while driving up the mountain. They have an amazing insight into Appalachian history and living!
Lots of hiking trails, 11 miles or so. Great spot for tent camping down below from the RV spots which is nice. Showers bathrooms and water easy access from the tent primitive camping.
We stayed in the tent only side. We had two tents (9 x 9 and 10 x 12). We had to move our picnic table because our tents wouldn't fit otherwise. It was private and bathrooms always clean.
Beware, the ticks this year are in abundance…. we even brought one back with us… ugh…
Parking is near sites, but you will have to bring you stuff up a short hill. Depending on which site you get, the hill is .05 to .2 of a mile at most.
Huge campsites, most private-ish, and many have both east and west views - meaning sunrises and sunsets. Bathrooms clean. Staff great. Plenty of hiking and activity options for all ages and experience levels.
Great campsites and RV sites. Still have good privacy. Great facilities for showering. Even in July, it is a good temperature, and the views are awesome. It is so close to the continental divide.
We spent a weekend up here in June. It was a lil hot but very peaceful and beautiful. The walk-in camping area is located down a narrow road and has a separate bathhouse. The drive-up overlooks are stunning. The hike to the small waterfall was a bit of a disappointment because it was more of a trickle than a waterfall and the hike back was all uphill. Other than that it was a great stay.
