Great place. Make sure you use a water filter!
I put a new one on and after 5 days it was clogged with rust. No phone service we drove up to the trading post to use our phone.
If you get spot #55 it is very step. I had to use my four wheel drive to get in and out. Probably could have done it in two wheel drive but did not want to take a chance.
Thay have cable but at the time we were there October 2022. I used a TV antenna on a 12 foot pole.with a signal booster and was able to get several channels.

Great park with lots to do. Quiet and clean. The only negative I could say is there was absolutely no WiFi and very little phone service. It was truly a place to get away!

Great Place To Relax
Agree with most post. Just got back from a 4 day stay and even with most of the extras amenities shut down like paddle boats and play ground, due to the virus..we still had a great time hiking and exploring. Trails are kept up to a high standard. Bathhouses were cleaned and smell like pine sol which were good. The host were also great came around the day before a big storm to make us aware what to expect and told us were the closest shelter were located. No complaints what so ever. Well go back again.

Lots To Do
FYI the roads in the campgrounds are tight if you have a medium to large rig. But all in all we loved it! Lots to do. Mini-golf, hike, fish, mountain bike, playground, beach, and a scavenger hunt for kids and they receive prizes if they turn it in. Lots of fun!

Great Park For Kids And Mtn Bikers
The campground was nice and shaded for July. We towed our SUV and 32ft trailer and fit just fine in the pull through camping spots. 50 amp hookup. Very quiet. If you have kids would suggest camping on the lake side as it's close to a playground, beach, mini golf and paddle boat rental. Lots of nice hiking, scenic over looks and mountain biking trails.

Hubby and I enjoyed 2 weeks here on site 60, a perfect level pull thru. Wooded and private.
The roads are a bit narrow, some of the sites are tight, and at odd angles for backing in. So be sure to look at map before booking!
The swim area is great. Paddle boats are available for rent.
Bath houses are well maintained. Washer and dryer are in each bath house.
We would definitely camp again in this location

Stayed Sunday thru Friday in the creek side section. All other reviews accurate. Clean bathrooms, very quite campground, and great trails from easy to "just punishing enough". The west rim of the Gahuti has some fantastic views and the yellow trail encircling the fire tower is stunning. Don't forget to go to the overlooks. Absolutely will return. Only downside (if consider it so) was limited at best cell service (which I liked).

Great park. Very nice trails and lake area. Roads are a little on the tight side for a large rig. Even the pull through I had was tight. Had to pull all the way through, and then back in to get straight. Overall we enjoyed the park and will return.

We stayed in this park and our brand new Luna and had a great time. This is a very nice park. We were able to take a day trip and visit three other state parks in north Georgia. Restrooms were immaculate. I would highly recommend this park.

We stayed for a week after Christmas. The park is beautiful and quiet. The park rangers are very helpful. The many park hiking and look out trails are well maintained. The bathrooms and showers were very clean with plenty of hot water. If in the park you can enter the campground area 24/7 via a keypad gate access. The only negative was that the park locks main gates at 10pm. You can leave but not return. With some of the tourist towns being an hour away, this makes you have to cut your day short or forget about seeing a night movie or later dinner because if you dont make it back up the mountian by 10 then you are locked out until the next morning. The park gate should also have keypad access for overnight campers. This was my first park to lock out campers at a specific time at night.

Fort Mountain is a great park with lots to do for the whole family. Lots of trails with interests along the way. A couple shorter trails for the younger hikers, 1 mile or less, which is nice. There is a walking path around the lake which is new and well maintained. Trails are well maintained as well. All RV sites are 30&50 Amp and have cable TV. Sites can be a challenge to get into. We have a 38.5' TT and was able to get in after a few attempts. Verizon phones will display (No Service) or (1x) inside the park. There is good signal a couple miles outside the gate towards Ellijay on top of the mountain and in town either way, (Chatsworth or Ellijay) works fine. Nice drive through the mountains to town. Staff were very nice and helpful.

Fort Mountain is a beautiful park with great hiking. The camp sites are fairly level plus there are many pull thrus. The bath houses could be updated. The roads could be a little wider and maintained bette. All in all, a nice park to spend some time in and camp.
