Cloudland Canyon State Park
*We. LOVED. This. Park!!! We were heading back from NC and saw the sign for it and took a last minute detour to go visit the park. We're already trying to figure out how we're gonna incorporate it into our trips from TX to NC.
*The road to the park is just what you'd think of for a mountainous area - switchback turns, hills, big hardwood trees, blind curves. (I think I'll let RDB do the trailer pulling on this one.)
*The park butts up to a deep canyon - with some amazing views, hiking opportunities, and even cave tours!
*They have quiet a number of accommodations at the park - we liked the idea of using the cottages for our trips across, and I was thrilled to find they had 2 which are pet friendly (with an additional fee, of course).
