This is the one near Columbus, Calloway Gardens and the more southern Pine Mountain:
At 9,049 acres, Georgia’s largest state park is a hiker’s and backpacker’s haven. More than 40 miles of trails, including the popular 23-mile Pine Mountain Trail, wind through hardwood and pines, over creeks and past small waterfalls. Many visitors are surprised to find rolling mountains 80 miles southeast of Atlanta. Above King’s Gap is Dowdell’s Knob where President Franklin D. Roosevelt sometimes picnicked and pondered world affairs. A life-size sculpture of the president now welcomes visitors to the overlook.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
Yes, Cumberland is beautiful, but definitely wait until November to go. We have gone and camped the entire week of Thanksgiving a couple of times before and it was great. No problem that time of year with the usual coastal insects trying to drain you of your blood supply or bite and rip chunks of flesh from exposed areas. The ferry will carry you to the Ranger office right by the dock on Cumberland, you must go through their do's and don'ts presentation before getting your campsite assigned. They also have some cold (freshwater) water showers there that make life pleasant. Soothing to lie in your hammock and hear the waves breaking all night long.
