We stayed at Cloudland Canyon last weekend and it's our new favorite state park. Not a lot around there, but plenty of hiking and mtn. biking trails and a very good general store a few miles up the road.

Electricity and water were good, our site was very level. We definitely prefer the West Rim campground over the East Rim. There were some fairly large rigs there.

I wish you could reserve particular sites instead of first come first serve.

That's why we like to come in on Sunday afternoon or even Monday. More selection in parks with non site specific reservations.

Love the Canyon and Lookout Mountain, have you ever gone over to Lula Lake? It's a privately owned trust and only open to the public about four days a month but has some impressive scenery and hiking.

No we haven't been there yet, we'll have to check it out - thanks.

I'm learning a lot from this thread, we usually camp in East TN / West NC, but we are starting to explore the mountain areas of GA now. We went to the Blue Ridge for the first time a few years ago (not camping). I just learned about Black Rock Mountain today in this thread and it's now on our "to go" list.

Since our TT is small we get to enjoy all the state parks that some of the larger rigs can't access.

We always visit CLOUDLAND CANYON State Park but the access road off of I59 at TRENTON GA has a a couple of sharp turn LOOPBACKs on it that might be too much for your 42 footer...

This is up on LOOKOUT MTN and there is a main road on the top but I really don't know if there is another way to get on it that doesn't have the loop back turns or not...

CLOUDLAND CANYON is a great site... We too like the West RIM the best. There the sites all have a patio fence around them - neat sitting on the rail and watching the squirrels...

Also just down the road from the on I59 is another very similar site called DESOTO STATE PARK at the FORT PAYNE ALA exit... It too is an excellent site... This one was just retrofitted a few years back for large trailers. The road I take getting there is not good for the long trailers so that would have to also be investigated for a different route to the top main road on LOOKOUT MTN...

We love off-road camping in the high country of ALA-GA-NC-SC-TN...

Cloudland is beautiful! We also love Desoto State Park near Ft. Payne, AL. It is "campy" and has excellent access to Little River Canyon and Chattanooga. We are going in June!

We camp in GSNP a lot, but only once in our new TT and that was our very first trip over this past New Year's holiday when we stayed at the KOA in Townsend. Our next trip up there is this July when we're staying at Greenbrier Campground.

We enjoy heavily wooded CG's. I'd compare Cloudland to Fall Creek Falls and Big South Fork in TN. We love having some space between sites too.

Sounds like Desoto State Park just made the list for us as well.

Cloudland last weekend -
