Black Rock Mountain State Park

Black Rock Mountain State Park

"Revel in the diverse eco-systems along rugged terrain or breathe fresh air from mountain top vistas overlooking pristine Appalachian forests at Black Rock Mountain, uniquely positioned on the Eastern Continental Divide and reaching altitudes of 3,640 feet as the highest State Park in Georgia."

Georgia's highest state park encompasses some of the most outstanding scenery in Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Roadside overlooks provide spectacular 80-mile vistas, and four hiking trails lead visitors past wildflowers, streams, small waterfalls and lush forests. Visitors enjoy the summit visitor center for its views, gift shop and picnic tables.

Mountaintop cottages surround a small playground, while campsites are nestled under rhododendron and gnarled oaks. Tent campers will appreciate the walk-in sites that allow extra privacy. The park’s small lake is popular with anglers and circled by an easy walking trail. At an altitude of 3,640 feet, Black Rock Mountain is often cooler than other Georgia parks and may close during icy weather. RVers should be comfortable driving on steep, winding roads.
