Black Rock Mountain State Park Campground

I have a new favorite Georgia State Park campground. I’d never heard of Black Rock Mountain State Park before. If you’re from the Atlanta area, you’ll recall the “April Tornados of 2011″… It went right through the area. Still the park is a gem.

Black Rock Mountain State Park is only open mid-March – November. It has spectacular views. The Visitor Center was in the midst of a major overhaul, and it wasn’t quite ready yet.

Still, the views at the Visitor Center were spectacular. The area also has an plethora of picnic tables overlooking those views:

Lots of Overlooks:

The “Trading Post” is campground central for checking in.

The Walk-in Campsites are nice, you drive down a paved/patched road:

The distance from the road, ranges from a few feet to a longer hike:One spot is right next to power lines (not exactly picturesque). The Comfort Station was at the end of Hickory Cove Road and had plenty of space for parking.When the leaves come in, I imagine the spaces are even more private, but without the views of the mountains. 

The RV/tent section was higher up, and many offered east and west views (meaning primo sunrise/sunsets) Generously-sized spots, without being on top of one another.  

The views were a treat in comparison to other State Park Campgrounds (Tallulah). I could hear dogs barking, but the area was quiet.
