  • Black Rock Mountain State Park is the highest state park in terms of elevation. That was enough for me to want to come here. I checked out online which trails to take and I opted for the shorter ones ...  more »

  • The moment I stepped out of the car, I knew we made the right decision to come here. This place was fantastic. Not many people, more than one look-off, and a visitor center for gifts or a memoriam made this place ideal to visit. There was no trash around and the area was well taken care of. It is a state park, so the fee would be $5 for parking.
  • First time going and I loved it. The trip here was unplanned and I don't regret it. $5 parking fee and the trails can be tedious and narrow at times but they're worth it to see nature at its finest. There were unique plants and as you walk around on the trails (I walked the Tennessee trail) I ended up getting lost but eventually found my way. The two employees I ran into at the store at the top were so kind even though it was time for closing. They smiled, carried on a conversation and looked like they took pride in their job. The views were beautiful swell. I highly recommend. UPDATE: I walked the 7.2 mile trail today. If you want exercise then it's worth it. Unique nature as always but the views are not too well only one great view which was lookout mountain.
  • The views are GORGEOUS! To get to the park you must pass an extremely winding road. Would not recommend for large campers, motorcycles or RVs the corners were a little scary in my sedan! We camped in backcountry campsite #4 and it was PERFECT. You can park near the lake and the hike is about a mile in. You also can park near the visitors center and park in but the hike is much further. The hike is GORGEOUS. Many small creeks and mountain views. The last thing you see before your campsite is a very large waterfall that runs very clear water. We used this waterfall to drink from (filtered of course!)! The site was of ample size and had two benches and an established fire ring. Even in the middle of July the temperature was perfect and got to about 65 at night. But beware this is bear country! Hang your food or use a bear canister. They do require you to sign a waiver for the bears so just be aware! We also saw many snails, slugs, and also two small owls which was all amazing! They are closed from Mid December-March due to icy roads so he aware of that as well! Highly recommend this beautiful park! We will be back!
  • The staff was very friendly; the 2.2-mile trail was beautiful, clean, well-marked, and a slight challenge; there were at least three great lookout points; and there were numerous trails of varying lengths. The lake is not for swimming, but the creek that feeds into it is nice to splash in. Overall, I'm glad we stopped here. If I were in the area and had time to kill like we did today, I'd come back again. I would like to try the 7-mile trail.
  • Friendliest park staff I have ever encountered! This is a beautiful park and the hiking is wonderful. We went for the day, but will definitely be back to camp!
