Very pretty place to visit and camp. Both the river and the lake are beautiful. Every staff member we encountered (6 total) was super friendly, super helpful, and a pleasure to be around!!! Excellent place! Highly recommended!

The waterfalls here are great but are not the center of focus for the park. Emphasis seems to be on camping and boating. Trails in the area of the falls are in very poor condition. Late fall is not the season to see a full running waterfall unless there have been unusually heavy rains in the watershed. I wish the... More

Bottom line, the waterfalls and trail down to the bottom of the falls are worth a visit. The park itself is not that great in my view, but the falls are worth it. Note, was told they are going to work on the dam, so the water levels will be way down, so check with the park if you are... More

I have always liked coming here to see the ducks. Fishing off the pier is cool too. The picnic areas, and the pool are a nice way to enjoy the family. There are also occasional play grounds for young children. Very pretty time in nature.

We visited on labor day and were very disappointed with the condition of the park and the way it is managed. The park looks tired and poorly maintained overall. It has been many years since we visited and were sad to see it has gone downhill since that time. There are many small / wild trees that have been allowed... More

Overall, a disappointing stay. We had initially reserved a yurt for two nights but ended up checking out after the first night. The park staff were very nice and refunded the 2nd night even though we said it wasn't necessary as it was our choice to leave early. Yurt was basic but more than adequate. Park was uncrowded, restrooms clean.... More

This is one place that all the local people in Middle Ga seems to just forget how beautiful it is to take your friends and family for a day or weekend visit. Great waterfalls photos to take and fishing camping and kayaking is always a good way to pass the time.

High Falls State Park is a great place to stop just 5 minutes off 75 north of Macon. Parking is on the left, cross the road to the trail to the falls. An easy walk down the trail gives you several vantage points to observe the falls. Absolutely beautiful. The campground looked very nice too. As a side trip, continue... More

Came back to camp and Geocache on these wonderful trails. Usually get a yurt on the lake but today got a river site. Lots are spacious and level. The falls are amazing and there is a water park and food nearby! Dausett trails a must!
