Georgia's Best State Parks

Cloudland Canyon State Park 
One of Georgia's most scenic state parks, Cloudland Canyon is a mecca for hikers and campers. Located on the edge of Lookout Mountain, the park offers a rim trail, backcountry trail and tough climb into the 1,980-foot canyon. Camping, cottages, picnicking, swimming and tennis courts are available, with exceptional caving nearby. 

Tallulah Gorge State Park
One of the most spectacular gorges in the Southeast, Tallulah Gorge has a rich history and rugged beauty that draws visitors from around the world. Scenic hiking and biking trails and an excellent Interpretive Center are open year-round. During certain times of the year, kayakers may brave rapids produced when Georgia Power Co. opens its dam, releasing thunderous rapids through the canyon.

Providence Canyon State Park
Known as Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon," this geological wonder features beautiful hues of orange, pink, purple and white in its soil layers. A newly renovated Interpretive Center explains how the beautiful canyon was caused by poor farming practices in the 1800s. A backpacking trail is available for hikers, and a developed campground and cottages are located at nearby Florence Marina State Park.
