There are backcountry hike and bike campsites at this state park, just not in the campground! You do need to check in with the ranger station and get permits, and reserve the campsite in advance. If you're hiking the Gahuti, site #4 at Rock Creek is the best site - more secluded from the trail than the others, plus fast running water to filter. Camped there in May, and it was cold due to altitude. There are fantastic mtn biking trails in this park, and one of the mountain's stellar views is wheel chair accessible. We stayed in cottage #1, and it had all the comforts of home.

Stick to the Ten Essentials and bring your map and compass. One of my Boy Scout Leaders got lost for several hours after following the wrong trail!

My husband, my dog, and I recently spent a three-day weekend camping at Fort Mountain State Park. We rented a gravel campsite and stayed on the creekside of the camping area at Campsite #22.

Our campsite came with running water and electricity, a movable park bench, and a fire pit. We were also very lucky to have gotten one of the only campsites with good sturdy trees that we could use for our Eno hammocks.

The bathrooms were always clean and well tended. Each camping area had designated hosts, which I believe were responsible for cleaning the restrooms.
