By: Cloudland Canyon was designated a state park in 1939. when the state began getting land from private owned land. Three of these owners, from the Mathews, McCauley and McKaig families, still reside in the area. Expansion of the park continues today as new land becomes available. The park was originally 1,924 acres, and has been expanded to its present size of 3,485 acres. Until 1939 the only access to the area was through Tennessee or Alabama, however that year Georgia began work on Highway 136 to connect it to the park. The Civilian Conservation Corps did much of the early work to construct the state park and access roads. The physical features of the park include waterfalls, canyons, and caves. GeoCaching:
Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which you use a gps app to locate a cache or container in one of Georgia's state parks to find a prize inside. Its kind of like a treasure hunt. When 94 people shared their reviews of the park, 70 reviews said the park was excellent, 19 said it was very good, and 5 said it was average. But 70/94 said it was excellent though! Isn't that great? The park takes up 3,488 acres. The park has 16 Cottages, and a few are dog friendly, but you have to pay $45 per dog, and the max is 2 dogs. There are 72 available tents at the park, and there is a RV Campsite in the park too. The park has 30 walk-in campsites, 10 yurts, 13 backcountry campsites, 5 picnic shelters, 1 group shelter, a pioneer campground, and a group lodge for up to 40 people. The park even has a gift shop. Here are a couple short videos of the park. Animals These are some of the animals that live in the park. Citation Wild Cave Tour
