Beautiful park. Camp host friendly and helpful. Weekends are full, so check ahead. Sites level and many pull throughs. Very clean and bathrooms excellent. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Don't waste your time if you are bringing a 38-plus motorhome or fifth wheel. Sites are poor at best, very unlevel and not maintained at all. Roads in camping area horrible. If you are coming in a class C or smaller trailer and tent, more options. Bathrooms need re-do. Staff was friendly. Park seemed very run down. Too bad, because it is located in a nice area. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Perfect setting. Immaculate sites and bathrooms. We were in a site next to the lake. Very pretty and quiet. All the sites were very spacious. However, a larger rig might have trouble getting around some of the turns. Hiking paths were very nice. We will return. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Had a fantastic time here. Spent 3 wonderful days in this lush forest. Staff very friendly and helpful.The only slightly negative problem were the steep uphill climb though the mountains. But my motorhome came through like a champ. The roads were wide, and well maintained. I just would be nervous to do the climb in the winter months. Fantastic value for the $28. I recommend it to all. The sites were really first class, under a lovely forest canopy. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

This is our 2nd stay at this park and once again we had a wonderful visit. There was plenty of room between us and our neighbor. It is very quite/peaceful all during the day and night. The Park rangers patrolled the park regularly and the trash bins were emptied daily. The bathrooms were clean but we prefer to use our rv facility's mainly. The only problem that I have is the fact that I have yet to catch a fish in the lake. I have tried everything in my tackle box - plenty of fish in the lake though - they swim all around my lure!!! Oh well I guess that's why I will stick with burgers and hotdogs when it comes time for dinner. Happy camping. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first time staying at this park. We had a wonderful time. There is so much to do here. We enjoyed biking, hiking, fishing and of course plenty of good food and fellowship with friends and family. While fishing we seen deer playing in the water on the other side of the lake. Our daughter and one of her friends seen a bear!!!! They thought that was pretty cool. The sites in this park are plenty big and you have plenty of room between you and your neighbor. There are several miles of hiking and biking trails. The scenery is beautiful. The park also offers putt-putt golf, paddle boat and jon-boat rentals. Other than not having good cell phone reception (which that could actually be a positive) this is a wonderful family friendly park that we plan on visiting a lot more often. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped in 2 sites here. We brought our pop up and 6 girl scouts camped in a tent. This park has a lot of trails and things to do in season. The sites were nice and roomy and level. Would definitely stay here again. The men camping beside us said that the park is never full and many times nearly empty, and they pick out their favorite site every time they come with no problem. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This was our second time staying at Ft. Mountain State Park. We continue to enjoy this park so much that we will be returning again in October. The sites are fairly level, or as level as you can expect given the terrain there. There is plenty of shade at each site. The park has a beach area on the lake for people to swim and while the water was fairly cold, there were quite a few people swimming. There are also paddle boats and John boats for rental there ($5). There is a putt putt course here as well. The park has plenty of hiking trails that are fun to hike on. The ranger station has a few items for sale, TP, firewood, some food items, ice, etc. The only drawback I see to the campground, is there are quite a few mosquitoes and gnats around, so bring bug repellent! The park is family and pet friendly. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We are blessed with beautiful, well-maintained state parks in GA, and this one doesn't disappoint. It is worth the steep mountain climb up. Has very pretty overlooks, scenery, etc. Only a handful of sites are waterfront on the lake, and you can't reserve specific sites, so it might be hard to get one in peak season. It was chilly in early spring, and we went on a Thursday, so we had our pick. The multiple gray water dump areas are very convenient since there is no sewer hookup. Has a nice playground, and it looked like it would be nice in the summer with a beach area and boat rentals. There were several benches lakeside for fishing. Bathhouses are pretty clean and updated, and have a laundry area. The hike up to the ancient fort wall and old stone tower was very cool, and do not miss the very enjoyable tour of the Chief Vann house nearby. It is bear country, so you have to be careful with trash. We were annoyed that the bear-safe trash bins near us were full, and there was an issue with a broken hot water tank or something. I wrote the state park site about it and received a very prompt, informative letter in response. I really look forward to visiting here again. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a wonderful campground. Sites are nice and big. Has easy access and friendly staff. One of our favorite places to camp. We met folks who came as far away as south Florida. We live close by and many of our friends camp at Ft Mountain too. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have read glowing reviews of the campground at Fort Mountain SP, and eagerly add ours to the mix! Everything about the two loops in this campground is excellent: spacious campsites, level pads, clean restrooms. Water pressure and electric service were trouble free, and most of the sites are nicely tucked in among the trees. Highly recommended! We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Another wonderful Georgia State Park. Quiet, plenty of hiking and nature trails. A little tricky getting into with a 35' motorhome but not too bad either. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park was beautiful. You do have to drive up a winding mountain road to get there and back down of course, so make sure you have good brakes! There were quite a few things to do without having to actually leave the park...fishing, swimming in the lake, renting paddle boats and hiking. The views from the overlook at the top of the mountain were simply amazing, although there is a 1/2 mile hike to get there. We have small children and they enjoyed playing on the playground, which was in pretty good shape. We saw lots of deer and were told by the park ranger that there are black bears in the park, although we never saw any. The sites were fairly level and spacious. We plan to visit this wonderful place again and would highly recommend this campground. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this park. Great spacious wooded sites. Great hiking trails and picnic areas. We took both the lake loop trail and the big rock trail. The former was flatter and easier to walk. The latter was steep and rugged in places, but led to a beautiful waterfall. We stayed for 2 nights and will return for future camping. The only item that would make this campground better is if it had sewer hookups. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The weekend we were here, the park was full. I went with my grandson with a church outing. There were a lot of children in our group. Saw a few small black bears and a lot of deer. Sites were small and tight but level. Great views from top of mountain. Will go back. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.
