Cloudland Canyon State Park

In Rising Fawn, GA there is a beautiful state park with an incredible canyon that everyone should see in the fall. It’s the kind of place that begs you to wear comfortable jeans and a jacket as you enjoy a roaring campfire, complete with marshmallows and hot chocolate.

The drive up was uneventful except for when a young man driving a huge truck decided that whatever he was texting was more important than where he was going and almost hit us head on, but apparently that wasn’t the day God planned for us to meet Him.  We wound up getting the best site available at Cloudland here on earth instead.

If I go back I will look for site number eight again.  It’s got plenty of privacy, a huge spot for Enos and tents, and hiking straight from that area is easy.  Just like at Moccasin Creek State Park, this state park also has a Hemlock Falls. It was a good hike but the lack of rainfall made this more like it should have been named “Hemlock Pool”. Still beautiful, though.

Chattanooga is only about a half an hour away. There’s also Chestnut Mountain WMA Shooting Range closeby!

One more thing, in Georgia, participating libraries have parking passes for the state parks for check out. We did and it saved us five dollars.

Mark and Tina are both US Army veterans who feel blessed to have served and to have seen so much of the world. Mark works as the Director of Military Outreach at a university. He also drives and maintains the camper. Tina is a retired homeschool teacher, does leatherworking, and writes/maintains the website.

They unwind and live in the 150 square feet of their travel trailer as often as possible with side kick Hero (Lhasa Apso mix rescue). Their grown kids tent camp nearby when college and career schedules permit. Being close to nature rejuvenates the family and lends time to focus on what matters most. They’re thankful to God for all of the blessings and opportunities.
