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

Worst Trip Ever!!!!!!!!!! I took a trip to Gadsden, AL from Las Vegas, Nevada because Las Vegas has nothing to do. I saw the statue of the women jumping into the waterfall and I thought to myself I could do that so I jumped. Little to say I died immediately after, I came back to warn the people not to... 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.

This park is beautiful. The falls are amazing. The story of the Indian Chiefs daughter is told on a plaque next to the statue. Easy parking, and just a couple miles off of I-59. Worth seeing.

Noccalula Park is an attractive area to visit. The park is quite large with covered picnic areas and plenty of parking spaces. There was plenty of water coming over the falls when we visited, but I imagine in dryer weather it is not quite as spectacular. The story is told, on a plaque beside the figure of Noccalula, how her... More

Beautiful falls and well worth the hot sweaty hike to see them. Definitely a KODAK moment. Warning: were slip proof shoes and carry water.

Been going to car show since I was a kid. Now I'm 41. Loved every show. Sure It rains sometimes, but that happens at all outside events. Wonderful helpful staff. My family has sold cars, trailers, ect. while participating in the show, all while meeting some great people. The park is beautiful. Unlimited train rides, petting zoo, and the wonderfull... More

Very nice, well kept park. Train ride, mini golf, camping. The falls are great with the statue of her jumping to her death to avoid a forced marriage right in Gadsden , close to motels, and food. Go see it
