Sites with full hookups, bathrooms and showers are a little run down and often have bugs (spiders, moths, etc) which is to be expected, you’re in nature. There’s a laundry room, machines are just a dollar (takes quarters) but you’ll need to run the dryer twice, there’s a big sink in the laundry room but all sinks says “do not wash dishes” so if you’re tent Camping like me, you’ll wanna bring a collapsible sink to use on your site. The west rim is considerably nicer than the east, more trees to allow privacy between the sites, The east rim is really open and feels more like a nicer parking lot for RV’s. The hosts and visitor center sell firewood bundles for 6 bucks but I’ve had trouble with them being damp and not catching on fire twice. There’s a Walmart a half hour down the mountain so I’d suggest stopping there before going up for firewood. The highlight of the place are the trails, different waterfalls, lagoons and rivers running along the way and a over 600 step staircase. The overlook is jaw dropping. I’ve had an amazing time every visit.
This was our very first outing in our 22RBE. It was worth the trip. The sites were spacious and easy for a newby to maneuver around in. Rey clean and quite. We will return.
We stayed here in Feb 2020 with family in another rv. We had 2 spacious sites next to each other. Electric and water hookups. Both sites were level. Park staff and camp host helpful and friendly. Hiking was enjoyable and easily accessible from rv camping area. Bath houses were clean and water was hot. Will return in the future .
We stayed on site 39. It was really large, gravel, flat spot with lots of shade trees. Looked into the woods. Plenty of space for our two golden retrievers. I liked that the fire ring was a little away from our camper, so not to worry about the awning with a big fire. Most sites were setup that way. Any of the sites in the West Rim area are really nice. They have nice bathroom facilities that are clean and also laundry facilities. The campground itself was very clean and well kept. They do have playgrounds, very small fishing pond, disc golf. Camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. Connecting trails from campground to the major trails. Due to COVID-19 I saw more trash in some areas than usual. People if you come to the park, be a good steward and take care of it. Great place for families to enjoy the outdoors. One of Georgia’s great State Parks!
We stayed overnight on a walk-in site and had a wonderful time. We have two dogs and loved having a little more space tucked back into the woods. We grabbed pizza from Lookout Mountain Pizza right outside of the park on our way in and the next morning we hit the trails for some beautiful hiking.
We stayed at the walk-in campground at site 2 during the week. It had good privacy with lots of trees and bushes between it and other sites. We arrived late in the day and there were still several spots available. This site is close to the parking lot, which could be noisy if it was a busy weekend. There was a picnic table and fire pit at each site. It’s an uphill walk to the bathhouse and water from site 2 but not too strenuous.
Stayed at site 17. The campground was more private that a lot of state park campgrounds, it was dark and quiet at night, and the trails backed right up to the campsites!
This campground was really nice. We stayed in one of the hike in spaces and the trail was well marked and relatively easy. We were disappointed with the waterfalls because when we went there was hardly any water in them. We returned a few mo the later however and the waterfalls were back to full blast, so I was just a passing thing. Overall our experience here was really nice.
We have been here many times, it's one of our favorite state parks! The hiking and scenery is one you don't want to miss! If you can, make the hike down to Cherokee Falls and pack your swimsuit and a picnic! As far as camping, they have literally everything a camper needs and more!! RV, hookups, tent, picnic tables, grills, firepit, yurts, cabins, restrooms, bathhouse, laundry, group lodging, etc. Super friendly and pretty clean!
The West Rim offered a few pull through sites with electric and water hookup as well as back in sites. We were able to walk right into the trails from the campground during the day and enjoy the lightning bug show in the evening!
