Cowan's Gap State Park Revisited: Fulton County

Cowan's Gap State Park is a lovely place to unwind and relax. They have lovely CCC era historic cabins, a really nice campground and facilities, a nice little lake for boating, fishing, and swimming, and beautiful trails and scenery. The hiking is excellent, ranging from an easy trail that goes around the entire lake, to vigorous, in climbing up and across mountains. The Standing Stone Trail and the Tuscarora long distance trails pass through the state park as well. 

Like many of the great state parks across the state, the infrastructure for this was built up by the CCC in the Great Depression era, putting young men to work and creating recreational relaxation places that have been enjoyed for the better part of a century. 

This state park is a gem and absolutely lovely. On our last article, we wrote about a visit we made to the state park. The photos from this article are from a stay we had. The ranger programs at this state park are awesome as well. This visit was a few weeks before Thanksgiving and the rangers had a program where they made an entire delicious Thanksgiving meal over the campfire. 

Some nearby awesome places to check out include Carrick Furnace, Buchanan's Birthplace State Park, Big Mountain Overlook, and lots of natural beauty surround this awesome state park. We definitely recommend spending some time here and taking in nature.
