This park sits on top of Fort Mountain in Chatsworth Georgia. It's cheap for an all day fun filled day. Small Beach for kids in the summer and trails with awesome sights. Very peaceful and quiet.

My husband and I made a day trip to FMSP for book research in late December 2016. I'd heard it was pretty, but we were unprepared for the absolutely breathtaking vistas the park offers. I was moved to tears. 11/10 would come again.

We always find the park clean and quiet. We like riding through to look for the bears. The overlook areas are superb.

From what I understand, you can't reserve specific spots. I would suggest trying to camp near the lake.
