I needed a break from every day hustle so I went to the falls to open up and unwind. Just pure Beauty at it's best. I love the attention to detail there. It's very clean and safe.

Good SAMs are always nice and very friendly This was a most welcoming relief after being refused service at River Country Campgrounds The manager was very rude. Apparently my rig isn't the right kind.? I'm glad we were diverted to Noccalula Falls Campground. The staff here are professional and even let me pick the site of my choice and come... More

The City of Gadsden owns this park, and it is quite a gem. Our entire family, from my parents who are in their 70's to my son who is 5, and we all had a great time. The train was fun and ran constantly so that we didn't have to wait long to move from place to place. The petting... More

We went to Noccalula Falls this summer with my niece and her daughter who were visiting from Amsterdam. Her daughter is 3 years old and enjoyed riding the train. She also enjoyed the petting zoo area area in the barn. The park offers lots of opportunities for people of all ages.

This is Gadsden's municipal gem, an eclectic city park with the highlight an impressive little water fall that tumbles down nearly nine stories to a small pool. The view is free when parking at the campground by the wedding chapel. The Park itself is a ticketed venue with some pleasant walking trails, a nice hike to the bottom of the... More

I took away 2 stars because of the zoo. some of the animal exhibits are way too small. One of the bird exhibits had multiple different species in one cage and one of them were rocking back and forth in distress and another had plucked out all its feathers. Was painful in the heart to see because I love animals.... More

A neat place to visit while spending time in Gadsden. Would also be nice to have a picnic, plenty of tables available. Been there several times over the years when visiting family.

Very good experience considering we had a 2 year old and a 3 month old. It was hot but with umbrellas we did good. Seemed like the kiddies loved the train. was afraid they would be scared but they enjoyed. The 3 month looked around and cooed and laughed.
