Canyon State Park
|Miles Towed: 200
mid 90's Clear
This trip was
arranged to get together with Larry
& Holly for a relaxing weekend trip. Cloudland seemed to be a
nice half way point.
Located on the
western edge of Lookout Mountain, this is one of the most scenic parks in the
state of Georgia, offering rugged geology and beautiful vistas. The park
straddles a deep gorge cut into the mountain by Sitton Gulch Creek, and
elevation differs from 800 to 1,980 feet. The most spectacular view into the
canyon is found near the picnic area parking lot; however, additional views
can be found along the rim trail. We hiked this trail and I can tell you
the views are beautiful!
Stores are less
than 30 minutes away in Trenton, GA but the park is so beautiful you may not
want to leave.
hosts assure that everything in the park is always in tip top shape.
reservations are taken, they are not site specific. You can reserve one
of three type sites; Type 7 which is the smaller of the sites, Type 9 which
are the larger of the sites and a handicapped site. Upon arrival, if you
have a Type 7 reservation you can take your pick of the sites marked with a
red site sign, If you have a Type 9 reservation you take your pick of the
sites with a green site sign. A pop up will fit on either type site, and
I must admit that both types have a mix of great sites and not so great sites.
sites are set aside. Roll in showers are available.
