In terms of highest points in the United States, Campbell Hill is very underwhelming. If you’re looking for a wow factor, oh wow will you be disappointed. There are no sweeping views of the mountains or panoramic overlooks of the surrounding area. The highest point is located on a relatively small hill, which is tucked away behind a community college.
Clingmans Dome is the highest mountain in the Smokies and is at the highest point in all of Tennessee. You can drive most of the way up to the summit and from the parking lot there’s a short, but steep path up to an observation tower that provides a 360-degree view of the surrounding area.
Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia. It is situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains and is surrounded by the Chattahoochee-October National Forest. To reach the summit requires a short, but steep hike up a paved path to an observation tower that provides a 360-degree view of the surrounding area.
Spruce Knob is the highest point in West Virginia. It’s located on the summit of Spruce Mountain, which is the highest ridge in the Allegheny Mountains. Getting to the peak is relatively easy, but it requires a lengthy drive up the mountain along a narrow road with lots of twists, turns and switchbacks.
The highest point in Pennsylvania is located on Mount Davis, which sits along the Negro Mountain ridge near the Maryland border. It was named after John Nelson Davis, an early settler and former owner of the site. He was also an American Civil War veteran, land surveyor and naturalist. In terms of high points in the United States, this one is pretty straightforward and easy to get to.
