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

Visited this park on Saturday past and had a really good time. The falls are awesome both from the top but even more so when viewed through the gorge trail on the bottom. The park is a nice place to get some piece and quiet and reconnect with nature. The petting zoo was so - so, but all in all... More

The grounds are very pretty. There wasn't much water at the waterfall. We enjoyed the train ride but the petting zoo lacked alot. It was more of a watching zoo. The hiking path to the gorge just about did my mother in, I thought we were going to have to airlift her out. I am exagerating but it was a... More

There is a lot more to this park than the website and brochure will tell you. Of course, there are the falls with a short, slippery, and humid hike down to the gorge, but there is a pioneer area with many structures from 1777, a petting zoo, a natural rock maze, a playground, and train ride. Better paths for hiking... More

Love the falls and all of the scenery. Fantastic way to spend the day with family or just a tranquil place to sit with a good book. Great photo opportunity. Planning another visit over the weekend.

Visited after a rainy week and was totally surprised by the falls gorgeous! Easy to access. Well landscaped. The view from the top into the gorge below was spectacular. Just off the interstate and definitely worth stopping. Look forward to stopping by again!

This is the most peaceful and relaxing campground ever. The sites are mostly paved and level. Full hookups with cable. The bathouses and pool are clean. They have a small kiddie park and a sand volleyball court. The staff is friendly. Short walking distance to the Falls and Jacks. I absolutely love this place! It is our favorite campground.
