Tallulah Gorge State Park


April 14, 2024

Tallulah Gorge State Park camping area is a picturesque destination located in the northern part of Georgia. The park offers stunning views of the Tallulah Gorge, a 1000-foot deep canyon carved by the Tallulah River. Visitors can hike along the rim of the gorge or take the 310-step staircase to the gorge floor for an up-close view of the rushing river.

Nearby points of interest include Rabun Bald, the highest peak in the area, and the charming town of Clayton, where visitors can enjoy shopping, dining, and local entertainment.

The campground has 50 campsites for tents and RVs, including 20 with electric and water hookups. Amenities include hot showers, restrooms, laundry facilities, and a playground. Reservations are recommended, and the camping area operates on a first-come, first-serve basis.

An interesting fact about the area is that it was once home to the Cherokee Nation, who believed the gorge was a sacred place, and that the sound of the waterfalls was the voice of the Great Spirit.

The best time of year to visit Tallulah Gorge State Park is between March and November. The average temperature during this time is 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit, making it pleasant for outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, and swimming. Visitors can also enjoy the park's many festivals, including the Fall Festival and the Wildflower Festival.
