Cloudland Canyon State Park reviews
I had no Idea that Georgia looked like this, You're not in Savannah anymore. We did the Rim Loop Trail. Very nice hike with great views. I highly recommend.

$5 entrance fee for gorgeous views and short, but rewarding trails. Trails are extremely moderate for an experienced hiker, but present diverse landscape. The trails were well marked, mostly clear from a lot of foot traffic and dirt. Look out for armadillos! We saw two while we were here. You’ll hear them rustling around. We enjoyed going all the way around the loop and then ending with a peek at both waterfalls which weren’t too full but couldn’t have fomo. Lots of stairs to the waterfalls as expected. Camping, RV spots, cabins+ available for an extended stay. The trails were lively with people and dogs enjoying the mild Tuesday afternoon. I do recommend! Views still available right off from the parking lot if you are not feeling a hike. Bonus is that the park also has a disc golf course.
We went the end of October '22 & the fall colors at the park were spectacular! We walked the many steps down to Hemlock Falls then back up and around the canyon rim of the West Rim Loop Trail. Falls are best after a good rain but still flowing. Definitely plan a whole day trip hike here. Wear good grip shoes, bring plenty to drink/ snacks. Views of the canyon can be seen from parking area as well. Hiking trail maps are free at the entrance information/ gift shop building. They offer primitive, RV camping and we saw some cabin type rentals. They also offer caving tours nearby which we will check out one day. Will definitely visit again when spring arrives.
The East Rim RV campsites were great! They seem recently updated with quick access to everything. The facilities were nice and clean, and there is even a washer/dryer room. The campsites are very close to the trails, as well. Was for the trails, canyon and waterfalls, they're magnificent and highly recommend! My kids had a blast coloring, making paper airplanes, looking at the plants and animals, and talking with the kind and knowledgeable gentlemen in the Interpretive Center, as well. There is a gas station and a Dollar General about 4 minutes outside the campsite, which was also extremely convenient! Great place, great time!
It was my first time here and I absolutely loved it. The hike has a lot of stairs, 600 or so, the grounds are well kept. The signs are accurate as far as telling you which falls is where and how far to it. The falls are beautiful, but I hear can vary due to rainfall. There are areas to get in the water, you can even go to the fall. It's pet friendly. I've hiked many canyons, never have I been as sore as this one made me. It was probably the stairs, it's brutal but 100% worth it!!!
This review is for day hiking only. We didn’t camp in the park. My husband and I visited Cloudland Canyon with our dog on Thursday, December 23, 2022. It wasn’t crowded at all. Parking is $5 per car. We did the West Rim Loop Trail (about 5 miles) in 2 hours and 45 minutes. It offered some nice views and wasn’t too difficult. We wish we had gone in the fall for even better views though. We also did the Overlook Trail (1 mile), which took about 20 minutes. Very good signage. They did a great job marking the trails. There was ample parking when we went. Bathrooms with running water and soap. Picnic tables and shelters. My only complaint is there weren’t any trash cans or doggy waste baskets anywhere on the trails, only in the parking lots. Obviously it’s not the Grand Canyon, but it was still pretty cool! We recommend!
