Black Rock Mountain State Park

Georgia’s highest state park includes 1,803 acres.  The park’s crown jewel, majestic Black Rock Mountain, altitude 3,640 feet, is located astride the Eastern Continental Divide.  Georgia’s top recreational area features numerous scenic overlooks, trails, rental cabins, cottages, campground, playground, picnic shelters, hiking trails, a seventeen-acre fishing lake, gift shop, and visitors center which is handicapped accessible.

Georgia’s highest state park encompasses some of the most outstanding scenery in Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Roadside overlooks provide spectacular 80-mile vistas, and four hiking trails lead visitors past wildflowers, streams, small waterfalls and lush forests. Visitors enjoy the summit visitor center for its views, gift shop and picnic tables.

Mountaintop cottages surround a small playground, while campsites are nestled under rhododendron and gnarled oaks. Tent campers will appreciate the walk-in sites that allow extra privacy. The park’s small lake is popular with anglers and circled by an easy walking trail. At an altitude of 3,640 feet, Black Rock Mountain is often cooler than other Georgia parks and may close during icy weather. RVers should be comfortable driving on steep, winding roads.
