This beautiful state park in a typical eastern oak and hickory deciduous forest ecosystem sits atop a Paleozoic gneiss ridge that is the Eastern Continental Divide at over 3000 feet. While downtown Clayton was in the 90s, it was 79F at our site midday. The breeze never stopped. For our small trailer in tow, there was no problem coming up to the park from US 441/23. And although there was one fiver in the park, there were no motor homes. If you are driving a large RV, my suggestion is to make a dry run up the road in a car or truck first, or talk with someone familiar with the winding road. No turnarounds, no shoulders. As for the campsites, they are level, all back in, some sites extremely long, others quite short. No sites truly have a broad mountain view, at least not while the trees are in leaf. For a state park, the sites are too often quite close together; privacy can be an issue. All sites are covered in fine crushed rock. Hookups worked well, although our neighbor had a wicked underground leak at the faucet, and cable TV did not work as promised (cut line, never repaired, and no one at the office mentioned it before we set up, ugh). Over the air DTV reception was excellent with 27 channels and all networks received. Sprint service (voice and data) was terrible. WiFi available at trading post and visitor center. Hosts and staff were great. Steep drop offs at many campsites, and an abundance of poison ivy. Hosts told us to beware of copperheads. No ticks. Black bear warnings are posted, but we saw none. No playground for kids. Park primarily seems to be a cool weekend getaway for people coming in from Atlanta and upstate South Carolina. Hiking seems to be the major focus, and the trails were great and extensive. Weekdays were definitely less busy, although noise was not an issue in the least. Was one of the most relaxing campgrounds we have ever stayed at because of temperatures and shade. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Georgia Parks fee that you will pay is good for ALL Georgia parks. Be sure to have your pass with you if you travel to other nearby Georgia state parks for free entry.

Seemed like a gorgeous park, however be aware that the office staff can be a bit dense and assure you that A. they have 50 amp sites, and B. a 32 ft travel trailer can make it safely to the campground, neither of which was true. After destroying a stabilizer jack and nearly killing my family just trying to get my camper back out of the campground that was obviously not suited for this size rig. The camp host was nice enough to help us find another campground - Tullulah Gorge State Park which was beautiful and actually cheaper. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Highest elevation Georgia State Park campground, running along narrow ridge of steep mountain heavily forested. Rhododendron thickets. Site variable depths with EW. Most fairly level. Dump station, two clean bathhouses with hot showers. Road up mt narrow, steep, twisted but class A's make it. Further up mt a nature center/views/gift shop. Went there as it promised to be the coolest campground during our August heat wave, and it was nice. Is rustic. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed our 3 nights stay at this State Park. The camp hosts were very nice and informative. The only complaint we had is that after quiet hours the camp host did not enforce the quiet time. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and had fun. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Great park if you're in a tent or a small RV. This is the highest state park in Georgia as it sits on top of Black Rock Mt. above Clayton. The road up here twists and turns. The up side to this campground is that it is on top of a mountain and connects to many trails. The camphosts are great (as they are in most state parks in Georgia). The drawback is many sites are very close together (for a state park) and the bathrooms were just so-so. So pick a good site and a tent or small RV and you are set. We will stay here again. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Tent.

The park personnel were friendly and helpful. The sites are level and have water, electricity, and cable TV. Bathrooms are clean and have sufficient hot water for showers. The road up to the campground is very steep with some curves. Roads inside campground are narrow and have some sharp turns. Not really suitable for big rigs. There are trails to hike within the park, a camp store, and amphitheater. This park is in a great location, with lots of attractions and things to do nearby. Near NC line, and close to Highlands, Franklin, NC. Dillard House nearby for good food, Sky Valley for skiing. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

As I have previously stated, I am a GA state park fan. We have about 10 more to stay at and will have camped at all. This was one of my favs! We enjoyed hiking down to the waterfall which even my mother was able to do. We were here in June with temps in the 90's everywhere we had been, however, it was in the 50's the morning we woke up at this park. It was awesome! The fantastic cable TV lineup was an additional bonus. Also, the Dillard House is close by and fabulous! I highly recommend this campground!

This is the second time we have visited this park. On this stay we pretty much had the park to ourselves. The General store was closed and there was a slight confusion at check-in, on who to check in with. The park was very clean and quiet. The camp host was pleasant. The reason for the (7) was the lack of activities and the dirty bathroom floor. This is still a beautiful park on top of the mountain. I guess we are just here out of season.

Access from Hwy 441 is on along several miles of a road that is narrow, winding, and moderately sloped. It was easy to navigate with our truck camper but I talked with someone with a 34' travel trailer and they had to swing out into the oncoming traffic lane to make it around some of the curves. Most of the sites are small to medium in length but there are some long sites. Sites in the first loop are hard to get into as they are at nearly a right angle to the narrow loop road. The second loop is really a spur off a one-way loop. There is a turnaround at the end of the spur that would be very tight for long rigs. Unfortunately this is where most of the long sites are located. That said, the campground is situated at the top of a ridge that provides beautiful views in nearly any direction. Had a nice view of the lights of Clayton from our site. Sites are gravel and reasonably level. Fire rings and picnic tables are provided at each site. Bath houses were not very clean but usable. Be sure to go to the visitor center ... even better view there! We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Truck Camper.

This is probably the most beautiful campground I have camped at. You camp in semi-secluded sites sitting on top Black Rock Mountain. The views are indescribable. The web site says the maximum length is 25'. I camped here in a 29' travel trailer with little problems. I would not come here with anything larger. Upon entering, you encounter a 2 mile road I would estimate 8-10 percent grade that is pretty scary. There is no way two RV's can pass in many places on the road, and there are several switch backs. The park shuts off the water from November to December. I am not sure why, but believe it is because the lines would freeze. There is a 15 degree difference from the town to the top of the mountain. All things said, the scary drive to the top is worth the great camping experience. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.
