Overall Rating

Yet another lovely Georgia State Park. Fort Mountain State Park sits atop one of the last larger mountains in the Cohutta Wilderness area. This provides for some lovely panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the North and East as well as the valley floor to the West.

The park can be a little tight for a big rig to drive through in parts so take your time. Each site is large and private with good electric and water hookups. There is a small lake to do a lazy paddle around or go for a nice swim. There are plenty of trails right off the park to enjoys lots of hiking or biking. It can be quite busy on the weekends and through the summer but we have never been bothered by the activity because most of the sites provide for ample space and privacy.

Up, up, and away!  This park is WAY up in altitude.  Sightseeing out the passenger window on the way to the park isn’t exactly relaxing due to the sheer drop-offs along the road’s edge, but the view...
