TAC-GA Cloudland Canyon State Park, Sept 2-5, 2011

The GA-TAC gathering will be from September 2-5, 2011 at Cloudland Canyon State Park. This will be close to the Atlanta Metro Area and also to Chattanooga, TN, so TN-TAC members may be interested in attending. There are numerous online reviews for this park and they are almost all very high in terms of visitor satisfaction. Many consider this to be the most scenic state park in Georgia. Keep in mind the event is over the Labor Day Weekend to take advantage of an extended setup. Early reservations will ensure a spot for the GA-TAC gathering. Now is not too early to make that reservation.

Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, this is one of the most scenic parks in the state, offering rugged geology and beautiful vistas. The park straddles a deep gorge cut into the mountain by Sitton's Gulch, and elevation differs from 800-1,980 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. Hardy visitors who hike to the bottom of the gorge (including a 600 step staircase) find two waterfalls cascading over layers of sandstone and shale into pools below.

There are 72 campsites located on 3,485 acres. Day hiking is a favorite activity on the 4.8 mile West Rim Loop, the 2 mile Waterfalls Trail, the 2 mile Backcountry Loop, the 6.5 mile Sutton Gulch Trail, and the 5.6 mile Long Branch Trail.

Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-864-7275
Park Number is 1-706-657-4050

Georgia State Parks - Cloudland Canyon State Park

RV sites typically include only water and electricity. A dump station is available within the park.

Nearby attractions include: Chattanooga, TN; Chickamauga National Battlefield, Lookout Mountain, Rock City, Ruby Falls, and the Tennessee Aquarium.

You can RSVP here and then check back to this thread for event updates and any new plans.


Let's go camping!

Just RSVP'ed as possible, have to check the work calendar first, holidays are a hard time to get off when working the retail environment!

Everyone should begin to plan for this fall event in advance to ensure a good spot. It's very close to Chattanooga, and my favorite, Rock City, and has some good hiking opportunities. Let's work in some campfire social activities in the evenings. Hey I'm ok with being the only Airstream in the park but it's always nice to have some other Airstreams around! Let's show the white box units that they are not the only game in town. Let's go camping.

we had one of our first Georgia Rallys there, even in the rain it was great. Be careful on the hiking trails as they are very rocky, my wife had to be carried out from the more distant waterfall back to our camper with a very badly sprained ankle.
It is a gorgeous park though.

This one is a ways off but be sure and mark the dates down in your calendar and go ahead and make a reservation to hold your spot. Another good opportunity for the TACsters to gather and share stories and adventures.

TAC-GA Cloudland Canyon SP, September 2-5

Just wanted to pass along some information. The national reservation center will not assign sites when you make your reservation. Also I called the park and verified that all RV sites are 50' which is good and that none of the sites have sewer hookups. There are two loops. To enable the Airstream units to be in a specific loop, someone arriving early can check in the other units, providing you have paid. We need to find out who can arrive early and then provide that person with the name/reservation ID to group up in one general area. All sites are on a first person first serve basis.

I will be arriving on September 2, checking out on the 5th. Hopefully someone will be arriving on the 1st to help out with this. Thanks!!

Great for Georgia and TN TAC members and anyone else looking for a scenic location with good amenities.

Keep In Mind The Following:

Your attendance at this rally is with the understanding that it is not sponsored by any person or organization. No monies are being collected for any events, and the responsibility for all expenses is borne by individual attendees. Likewise, all liability for any accidents, personal injuries, or damages (either at the rally site or while traveling to/from) is strictly the responsibility of individual attendees. In other words, this event is the same as if you were traveling/camping on your own, and happened to arrive at a campground where many other Airstreams were staying. Organizers/hosts are only acting in the capacity of “information providers” and “facilitators,” and will be held harmless from any damage claims resulting from your attendance.

Very nicely stated. Bring easy to prepare ingredience for appetizers, to take to impromtu social gatherings. Also come prepared for breakfast get togethers and/or campfire snacks. Sidewalk chalk works adequately for pointing the way to unplanned, spontaneous, activities. Just come prepared to have a good time. For those of you who camp with a lap top, check in at this rally post to see what's happening and then spread the word to other participants. It worked out fine at the Roosevelt State Park TAC and this one will be great too. Hope to join in the fun.
