Beautiful place for rest. You can do campground there or just visit to make photos of water falls. Really nice place

My brother and I took our respective broods here for week of "no tech", back to nature togetherness. We booked a double site near the creek in the back of the park and just "lived". The kids could splash in the creek all day or run around the site without disturbing anyone. The campers that were there during the week... More

Had a fun 3/4 mile hike to a beautiful end. The fall was worth the hike . Had a family picnic the park was nice . The only negative as with most primitive parks was the restrooms . the smell is unbearable . So if you can't hold your breath for the duration . Go before you arrive.

This was one of several waterfall hikes that we did on our recent trip to north Georgia. This was one of the easiest hikes that we did. Most of the hike is along the stream with only a small section that goes away from the stream. The waterfall it self is not really impressive, but it is nice. This is... More

Great falls and in a beautiful location. Trees are probably at peak right now, the only downside is that you can hear road noises.

These were beautiful falls but be prepared to hike. Whether you chose the upper falls which are 3/4 of a mile from the fall entrance or the lower falls which is approx 1/2 mile. We choose the lower falls (1/2 miles). Oh boy! What a hike!! There were turns, deep stairs, if you want to call them that, but we... More

This is a nice, easy hike with some pretty falls at the end. There are 2 trails: Upper Falls and Lower Falls. Neither of them are too steep. We even saw a couple with a baby going up to the top. DeSoto Falls are on the way to Neel's Gap and the Mountain Crossings store.

The campsite, bathrooms, and amenities were well maintained and clean. The hike is easy and the scenery was very beautiful. There wasn't any fishing while we were there. We are hoping for good fishing in the spring when the stream is stocked. My only real complaint was the loud neighboring campers, which can't be helped or predicted.

Wonderful hike and great trail even with very young children. Beautiful walk and creek. Small falls but relaxing.
