Fort Mountain State Park is a Georgia state park historically known for its grand rock wall, located on Fort Mountain, just 98 miles (157 km) north of Atlanta, Georgia. Please note that while there are no designated stargazing areas, the park is accessible by the public year-round and offers secluded hiking trails, lakes, streams, and more, with wide open night skies suited for gazing; one EarthSky reader recommends the parking area situated on Highway 52 east at the top of the mountain. Star parties and other stargazing events are hosted by park management as well. Camping is also available from a selection of shelters, both primitive and developed. For more information, please visit online or call 706-422-1932.
