Very nice area and you have to do the 600 steps to the bottom of the canyon! And yes, it's 600 steps back up, mostly on an elevated walking trail. The vertical drop is 1200+ feet and is amazing with 2 waterfalls. Extremely beautiful area of Look Out Mtn...make sure you take a camera, if you don't, you will regret not having one as the photo ops are endless. The bathhouse on the South Loop where we stayed is older, with good pressure and good hot water, but everything worked at it should. I didn't wash clothes, but one W/D was at the bath house. All paved roads, with the pads being crush n run. This SP had the largest of the 5 SP's I visited in 3 wks that I've seen, great selection of products to purchase. The camp hosts were great! I will return to this SP again to see more. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Great state park on top of Lookout mt in N.GA. A deep rugged canyon with hiking paths all along the rim with steep long wooded stairs leading from the east campground to the canyon floor and the waterfall. The west CG is more spread out with wide separated compacted gravel sites with heavy timber border, two bath houses and one play ground. Paved CG road. Most sites fairly level but some need levelers. The east CG is more civilized with cabins, closer sites, a nature center and trails to the canyon floor and falls, and to the magnificent overlook over the canyon and the deep valley along which Trenton GA and the interstate I 59.Best come up from Trenton. The road north to the town of Lookout Mt ends up in narrow very tight curvy roads with very poor route signage to the two roads leading off the north end of the mt into Chattanooga. Very easy to get loss in the irregular town road system. Not RV van territory. The park is first class. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

We spent 2 nights and enjoyed it. We were in pull-through site #48 in the West Rim area. Even though the park says they only have 30 amp electric, this site has 50 amp. Several others we checked also had 50 amp. Many of the 30 amp sites we looked at had two 30 amp plugs. The water and electric worked fine. The site was well packed gravel and only minor leveling was needed. Most of the sites we considered were level like that. We tried site 40 first, but found it to be too far out of level side to side. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were immaculate. The laundry even had a rocking chair. We are only giving an 8 rating because of the internal roads and the fact that Georgia charges a $5 vehicle fee on top of the campground fee. The internal roads are narrow, as expected, but there has been a lot of rain water erosion on the sides of the roads. This makes the back-in sites difficult. Combined with the narrowness and curves, it creates a drop off that our one-ton dually would have a hard time dealing with turning and backing, into a site. The road into the park from the interstate does have 2 switch- backs and climbs 1000 feet in under 4 miles, but the turns have wide shoulders and we had no trouble negotiating it with our 14000 lb 5th wheel. The $28 rate is before our 20% senior discount. We will stay again. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great state park with a lot to do here. Great lookout points, waterfalls, and hiking. Good campground with really nice host. Our site was very level (34) and most sites looked level as well. My only knock is I like a little more space between the sites for a state park. Don't get me wrong spacing is good I just like more privacy. Very quite campground especially for a Saturday. We love Cloudland Canyon and will be back.

$30 bought us 30 amps, on-site water, and a dump station on exit. We stayed in the east loop which is more open but even so we were unable to obtain a satellite view. Sites were spaced apart, as you'd expect for a state park. While the campground is shaded, there is no vegetation between sites to enhance privacy. The campground was empty when we arrived so we picked a site offering an unobstructed view of the woods. During our visit in late April, there were still signs of spring with numerous dogwood trees in bloom. Bathrooms and showers were clean, and they have a single washer and dryer for $1 per load each. There are many pet-friendly hiking trails, many of which start from the campground. An easy trail runs along the edge of the canyon offering breathtaking views. The campground is located just minutes off I-59 at Trenton GA making this a great stopover location on our way to the Smoky Mountains NP. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We agree with other comments: this is an excellent State Park that offers a lot. We also stayed in the East camping area which is close to: (1) a large picnic area, (2) the Interpretive Center, and (3) tennis courts. Also, the trailhead to the falls is walking distance from the camping area, as are very nice large cabins for rent (8 persons). The north area also offers cabins and a Yurt Village. We were told the campground only has 30 amp service, which is what we had. The sites in the East Camping are are all gravel, built up an level from the surrounding hilly terrain, and bordered with 8x8 timbers with railings. Much like we experience at Corps of Engineer campgrounds. We were lucky in that we did receive satellite reception on site 68. It was very peaceful here during the week with only one other camper in the park. We definitely will return here in our motorhome and visit all the attractions in the area.

The reason this park received a 9 is because the bathrooms and showers are old. Campground sites are level, clean and easy in and out. Views of the canyons are beautiful and lots of hiking trails. Be aware that the hike to the falls involves many steps down to the falls and back up. You must be in good shape to make this trek. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Gorgeous location and reasonably convenient to grocery and Chattanooga. The hike to the waterfalls is pretty tough, but worth it. We stayed in the East campground which is more open than the West, but the bathhouse was pretty old, but reasonably clean. No satellite, but were able to get the main networks over the antenna. Verizon cell service was good. One of the best state parks we have been in - will be back. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful State Park with spacious sites, wooded areas, hikes, yurts, cabins and the view from the top of canyon is fabulous. We stayed in West Rim which is more secluded and not near trails. Sites are level and space between each other. Scenic drive into park, easy to navigate roads and easy back in to sites. Bathhouses clean.

A beautiful park. We stayed in the west rim CG, a beautifully wooded setting with very well done sites. While there are no sewer hookups, there are grey water dumping stations scattered generously scattered throughout the CG. A brand new yurt village, just across a shallow ravine from the CG was a day or two from opening but we peaked inside one and were very impressed with these as well. The trails are among the prettiest you'll find anywhere. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Another excellent Georgia State Park. I stayed in the West Rim campground section. Level site with plenty of space between (not many sites were occupied), nice campfire area, plenty of sites are convenient to bathroom facilities, laundry facilities a real bargain ($1.00 wash/dry). Walked along part of the West rim which offered amazing views of the canyon. Trails are nicely marked but a word of caution - there are no safety rails so be mindful of kids and dogs getting to close to the edge. Great park location for exploring Chattanooga TN and the surrounding area. Lookout Mountain a must. Hope to return again. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Arrived here around 1:00pm on Friday and headed to west rim campground. There was a lot of empty sites but they already had name tags on them. Was told you couldn't hold a site, so I didn't understand that. Very few sites in the east or west rim that a 40' motorhome would fit in. Found one that was pretty unlevel but it worked. Would not want to get here after dark. West rim was nice and woodsy and the east rim was more like a park and also close to the day use area. I would suggest to unhook your toad before you head up the mountain, because it is steep! I did like the campground and would go back again! Next time I might come on Thursday and try to find a little better site, as I said for bigger rigs they are few and far between. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Second time we have camped here. We were here in April last time and the campground was nearly empty. It was full this time. However, it is a very nice campground. The hiking trails are very nice. The waterfalls and the fall foliage were beautiful. There are no stores nearby, so come prepared. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first stay at Cloudland Canyon. We stayed at the West Rim Campground, which is newer and has roomier sites than the East Rim. The campground is hilly but the sites are level and shaded. The bath house was well-stocked but was only cleaned once during our 3 day stay. There are numerous hiking trails around this large park but they are all moderate to difficult. There is an interpretative center near the East Rim campground and beautiful views of the canyon from that area. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park and we had a great stay. I was tempted to give it a 10 but the campsites do not have 50 amp (which we usually use) or sewer hookups. However we used the 30 amp with no problems and well maintained dump stations are nearby. We stayed at the west rim campground in a very peaceful and quiet setting curtained by beautiful trees. We walked the campground and didn't see one poorly located campsite. The east rim campground is more like a park setting but also lovely. We would be happy at either one. The hiking and views of the gorge were equally breathtaking in their own way! Looking forward to going back. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.
