We came here on a day trip just to visit the water fall. The park had camp and rv sites as well as cabins. It also had a gift and general store. We did not explore as much as we wanted to. Our main objective was to climb down to see the water fall. The climb down was easy and... More

I am so glad we made the trip to visit. What an amazing place, right here in Georgia. The Waterfalls Trail, and The West Rim Loop Trail are both worth the effort and time. The staff in the visitor's center were helpful and nice. We looked at renting a cottage inside the park but decided it was too much space... More

A wonderful state park! We chose the waterfall trail. A well traveled trail. The falls were beautiful ... Both Cherokee and hemlock. Plenty of spots to sit along the way, which is nice on the way back up the trail!

Went to this beautiful canyon to enjoy the fall colors. The geography is amazing, so were the colors. Best three things here. The hike down the wooden staircase to the beautiful waterfall at the bottom. But beware, straight down means straight back up. Frankly, the climb back was rather difficult if you are middle age or older. Second was the... More

Another great Georgia State Park. Everything is well maintained with great scenic views. There is a variety of thins to do from hiking, caving, mountain-biking, geocaching, and much more. However for the best experience take stay a few days at one of the walk in campsites to have some time to experience the full park.

Absolutely amazing place to see. Photos do not do this place justice. The canyon is huge. The waterfalls are big and beautiful. It is a lot of walking and many stairs but worth the effort.

We arrived there at 9am and went straight to the office to book our camping space. When we told the lady that we are staying for ony a night she said that they are fully booked and suggested to go somewhere else. Because we couldn't find the place, we came back and asked if we can stay for 2 nice... More

This is a great spot for viewing fall foliage this far south. We were concerned that we wouldn't get to see much after reading about all the steps to get to the bottom of the gorge. We didn't get to do that, these bad knees couldn't handle the stairs, but we were able to view the gorge from numerous overlooks... More

The leaves are changing, nature has put on her finest Fall colors and this is a good place to see the show! This State Park is ~2.5 hours drive N/NW of Atlanta, and only about 30 miles south of Chattanooga, Tn. There is a small fee for entering the park or the Georgia State pass will get you in for...
