Sleep (and hike) under the stars at Cloudland Canyon


On the western edge of Lookout Mountain, Cloudland Cayon State Park is one of Georgia’s most scenic. Reserve one of the 10 canvas-topped yurts and you can immerse yourself in nature while remaining cozy as a bug. Make up your bunk (be sure to bring your own linens), and then hit the trails that meander around the rim and into the gorge below. On Saturdays there’s a ranger-led quarter-mile sunset stroll to a hidden west-facing vista overlooking the valley. Better yet, on some Fridays you can take an organized two-mile evening hike that ends under the stars.
