We have been there 3 times with our camper and we love it! The sites are spacious with picnic benches, fire pits, grills and some have swing chairs! There are several nature trails including difficult and easy trails among beautiful surroundings. there is also a long trail down by the river. It is a very short walk to the falls,... More

We went here today. The falls were beautiful. The home wasn't as bad as people made it out to be. I think the animals need better care. The sheep and alpaca both needed shearing. The water in the pens didn't look clean. What we saw for food was onions and pineapple tops.

Visiting Noccalula Falls has always been a treasured past time for many families in Gadsden. I think we take for granted this beautiful landmark tucked away in our little city. From the train ride to putt-putt golf, it is a great place for families. The scenic hiking and walking paths are great for anyone who loves the outdoors.

This is a city maintained park with the scenery as the focal point. It gas a good size natural water fall. The area is historic with some added attractions such as gardens and the Veterans Memorial Area. A small train is a nice way to see the entire area. There is a children's area with some kiddie rides. And, at... More

Noccalula Falls was a beautiful place to stop, and I'd highly recommend it. We paid $6 per adult to enter, and it was well worth it because you can take your time around the park. There is a small train that will bring you around. This is good to get your bearings, but you really should get off at the... More

We visited this park for the first time this weekend. The fee of $6 was reasonable.The staff was friendly and the restrooms were clean. We enjoyed the rustic village and the preservation of the old buildings. It would have been nice to have a pamphlet to follow. We were impressed with the natural beauty of the area. The trail to...

Park was built in the later part of the 1960's and is very well kept. Many of the sites are small and compact but there are some that can accommodate larger rigs. There are several pull-thru sites but they cannot be reserved and are on a first come first served basis. The sites have utilities and sewer but sometimes the... More

My favorite place to go during Christmas. Only $5 a person and kids under a certain age get in free. It's simply magical. You get to ride the train around the park, free pictures with Santa(bring your own camera). Santa is legit and good with kids, petting zoo and the water fall is amazing! I have been once in the...
