Located astride the Eastern Continental Divide at an altitude of 3,640 feet, Black Rock Mountain is the highest state park in Georgia. Numerous scenic overlooks provide spectacular 80-mile vistas of the Southern Appalachians, and several hiking trails lead visitors past wildflowers, cascading streams, small waterfalls and lush forests. The summit visitor center and picnic tables are popular with travelers in northeast Georgia. Nearby are Tallulah Gorge State Park, Moccasin Creek State Park, and the town of Clayton with art galleries, restaurants and shops.
Rental cottages with mountain views and a modern campground make this a great mountain getaway. Tent campers can even choose from more secluded "walk-in" sites or primitive backpacking sites. Campers with RVs should be aware that the park entrance includes a two-mile climb with a 10% grade, and the campground has a number of tight turns. Most camping rigs exceeding 25 feet are not recommended. Due to the incline and the high elevation, the park may close during periods of icy weather.
The park's small lake is open for fishing and paddling, and a short trail circles the edge. Electric trolling motors are allowed (no gasoline-powered motors) but boats must be carried a short distance since there is no ramp. PFDs and fishing licenses are required.
