Have been visiting Noccalula Falls since I was in elementry school. It holds such special memories for me. The gardens are beautiful and there is a small charge for the gardens and train ride. There is a campground, playground and cabins that you can rent. Such a peaceful, beautiful place.

We go way back Nocalula and I. 45 years ago we started hanging out that when the East Rome Gladiator Bands would have a day of fun before the competition. It never got old though. Beautiful place.

Beautiful campground! Train ride was a real fun! The real treat on a really hot day was the shaved ice! Totally recommend!

Great for a day trip if you need to get away. Beautiful setting and lots of rocks and trail ways. Nice at Christmas for the lights and lots of fun for everyone.

Visited here five years ago and returned with our grandson and our daughter. Nothing has changed for the better. It continues to slip. The truth is it has so much potential and is either being mismanaged or is lacking the money to fund properly. The first negative sign and foretelling sign of things to come you are meet with is...

The animals at their "petting zoo" are in awful condition! The inside exhibit is so, so bad! The poor animals were covered in flies and it smells horrible! The poor lioness broke my heart, in her tiny pen! She is a beautiful animal and she deserves so much better! PLEASE, someone help these helpless animals!

A sight worth seeing when in the Gadsden area. Didn't visit the campground, but did view the falls and the park looked nice. We didn't stay too long because it started to rain.

This was a beautiful stop on our way through Alabama. The Falls had beautiful flowers, a kids playground and a cool train ride tour. We also found a trail down and walked behind the falls. Great time and our Tween boy even liked it.

This is a pretty park with lots of beautiful landscaping. This park has an awesome overflowing waterfall, depending on the time of year and rainfall, the water can be just a small stream to a raging waterfall. It can be seen from the top or from the bottom. You can go down a gorge trail and get underneath the falls... More
