Cloudland Canyon State Park – Georgia
The 3,500-acre Cloudland Canyon State Park is one of the loveliest state parks in Georgia, with deep gorges, cliffs, and crazy rock formations. It has 64 miles of hiking trails through lush forests, along with streams, waterfalls, cascades, and panoramic overlooks. The most strenuous of the treks include a 1,000-foot elevation gain. For mountain bikers, 30 miles of paths include plenty of intense single-track trails.
The park also has several caves, open through October, that can be explored with permits or on a tour. Fishing, horse riding, and even disc golf are other options here. The park has 72 campsites with a combination of RV, tent, and backcountry options that you can reserve. If you want the camping experience with a little less dirt, the park also has several cottages and yurts you can book.
