So many trails so little time! Whether we took the overlook or the gorge floor it was awesome! Camping area was clean and we'll appointed. Showers we adequate if not luxurious. Nice fire pits and very friendly people. I enjoyed the interruption center and as I stated first lovely views!

We are novice hikers and are ysed to the relatively flat trails of Florida. The interpretive center was impressive, informative and the guides were friendly. We decided to brave the gorge and were lucky to receive three of the 100 passes permitted daily. We started off going the wrong way on north ridge trail and for future reference we will... More

The family and I spent the day at Tallulah Gorge hiking and swimming. The park is beutiful, the hike down to the bottom was pretty easy, and playing on sliding rock and swimming was really fun. However, the hike back up the canyon was tough! We took the short cut back up the canyon...straight up, then had to climb the... More

My family recently made a quick trip to see this state park. It is beautiful, but there are a few things you should know. If you want to actually hike the gorge, go early. They only give 100 permits a day. They can go early on weekends. We did not hike the trail, but I understand it is a strenuous... More

Hubby and I took a daytrip to Tallulah Gorge State Park. The interpretive center was lovely, and the staff were helpful, explaining our route for the rim hike, including the 1099 steps to the bottom of the gorge and back up. We loved seeing the deep gorge and all the waterfalls! The bazillion steps down were a serious workout for... More

Traveled with 4 teens ages 19,18,16,13...they loved it. It's a great workout! Beautiful waterfalls. The sliding rock was fantastic. Take plenty of water, towel and snacks/lunch. I wore shorts and bathing suit top. You will climb BIG boulders and jump from rock to rock. You will also crawl on all fours just to make it across the side of the... More

Our family camps often- normally at Georgia State Parks. Someone recommended we visit Tallulah Gorge State Park and hike the gorge. The park and scenery is beautiful but the staff was not the friendliest we have encountered. Generally, state park employees go out of their way to make your visit enjoyable but we felt these people were a little too... More

One of the most spectacular canyons in the country! Tallulah Gorge visitors can hike to several overlooks that are easy to strenuous, or they can obtain a permit to hike to the gorge floor (100 per day) A suspension bridge provides awesome views of the riverbed and waterfall. After working up a sweat from hiking You can swim across the... More

This is a mediocre attraction in a speed trap town. Speed limits that randomly change for no reason but to generate revenue. Never felt comfortable driving as so many cars were entrapped and feared I'd be next. Went to relax, but was tense every moment driving wondering if I missed that poorly marked speed limit change.

Nice, well maintained trails. Slide rock is a blast! Beautiful scenery. Lots of waterfalls. Steps are a challenge.
