I had spent Sunday night in a Forest Service campground near Franklin, NC, but they were full (and lots of noisy people and kids too) so my friend could not get in on Monday, so we agreed to meet (he has a Dodge 3500 and 30 ft TT) at Black Rock Mountain the next day. I have a Sprinter chassis motorhome and I had to use 1st gear and about 20 mph to get up the mountain. Same for going down, be careful to not overheat your brakes. You are going up about 1500 ft in elevation in about two miles, so the grades are 8 or 9% the whole way. There is no place to pull off or turn around so be prepared and know your RV is capable of the climb. Well worth it however, the views are spectacular with lots of nice hiking trails and a very nice Visitor Center. I bought a GA annual parks pass for $35 (senior price, regular price is $50) and got one night of free camping with it (worth $32) so it was a no brainier to buy it. For the night I had to pay, I received a 20% senior discount, so if over 62, be sure and ask. Only complaint is that there are signs at each of the longer sites asking tent campers to use other sites if possible, and leave the long ones for RVs, but we saw a couple of tents in 50 or 60 ft deep spaces, when there were quite a few short spaces open. The sites are very fine gravel with big heavy picnic tables and double lantern hooks, and fire pits. with grills in the pits. While the restrooms were neat and clean and everything was in good working order, the showers, while quite acceptable, could have stood to have a good scrubbing and hose down. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A little over 2 miles north on US 23 from the road to the park is Osage Produce and they have very good local and Georgia and North Carolina grown products. Just a couple of blocks north of the park road is a Dollar General and about three miles south in Clayton is an Ingles grocery, Chic-Fil-A, Dairy Queen, McDonalds, and gas stations and other businesses. We didn't eat at the Dillard House in Dillard but I have been told it is well worth the visit.

Another great Georgia state park! Bathrooms heated, clean, and well-maintained. Some sites are long enough for very long rigs, but getting in and out will be difficult. The road to the campground is very curvy, narrow, and up hill. Within the campground, roads are twisty and narrow. Forested, but not dense. Enough separation that we did not hear our neighbors. Verizon 4G. There were still plenty of sites in early April. Reservations are not site-specific, so it helps to arrive early for better selection. Great views and a number of nice trails. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Climb up was steep but worth it. Host was very helpful. Camp office was never open. Had to work with host for ice and wood. Sewer connection was located on the way out of the park next to the building for garbage. Very accessible although tight. Site also had cable TV right next to power which was a great option. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Check out farmers stand north of park. Lot of heavy traffic headed south toward Clayton on Sunday. Park Office was closed the entire time we were there. Check-In had to be done at visitors center on top.

We have stayed at Black Rock and loved it every time. The staff is attentive and the property of clean. The sites are very wooded and quiet. It's a tough pull even in a new truck to get your rv up the windy mountain road.

This time we found the trading post closed and open only on weekend afternoons. Our water went out the first day and the park restrooms also closed. Would have been nice to have someone stop by to explain they were working on the problem, but that did not happen.

The campground host kept driving around in an old golf cart that back fired every time she stopped. Sounded similar to a gun shot.

We noticed they have thinned out a lot got the trees on the sites, luckily we were able to get a secluded site. Drive around before parking and find a nice secluded site.

I would also note the tent campers who pay less take up a lot of the good sites. Kinda aggravating. There should be a tent area.

The addition of cable was great, but there is no wifi. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean, employees helpful, great views & overlooks, most sites were moderately private and shaded. We enjoy the cooler temperatures at this elevation (above 3000 feet) and proximity to sight seeing in NC and GA. We plan on returning several more times!

Tips for other Campers:

My tow was parked across the lot in front of my trailer. To hook up I was more than half way across the road. Campers coming and going had to drive this road to a circle at the end and if someone was coming, that had to violate your spot.

One of the older state parks in GA but very well kept. Friendly staff and hostess. Beautiful mountain setting but many of the sites are small and rather tight with many trees around. A few sites that larger motor homes would have no trouble setting up and some are rather private and close to bath facilities. Campground cable was working fine with several sports channels and major networks. We stayed here 5 days and really enjoyed it. Will probably return within the next year or so. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Typical GA state park, i.e., excellent overall. Long winding grade to park but we saw large motor homes on site who made it. Not a lot to do except hike but that's fine--pretty area. Recommended. Easy sites but kinda close to neighbors. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Truck Camper.

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.

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! We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.
