The falls are called the "Niagara of the South". They are great but not as good as the real Niagara. Anyway, these falls are a must see if you are in the area. They are only about 20 minutes off of I-75 and are free. Go visit other attractions in the area, such as Berea.

Our money don't go far this day and time but this is a great place to spend a day and it will not cost you a thing other than gas and lunch. The falls are beautiful and we were blessed with abundant rainfall for the month of August and a beautiful sunny day giving us an extra bonus of a... More

It was fun, we walked around and saw the falls. Only thing that makes me sad is all the trash...there was so many broken bottles on the rocks. I don't get the joy out of breaking glass, so I don't understand it. Just be real careful if you let your kids climb the lower rocks, and wear closed toed shoes.

The cabin was clean, spacious and had all the necessities. The resort restaurant food and service was very good. Our only disappointment was that the pool was closed because the lifeguard quit earlier than expected, and we were not forewarned, which was a real disappointment. Otherwise, it was a satisfying weekend trip.

My brother and I stayed in Dupont Lodge as a getaway. The rooms were to small. No fridge in room. Staff was not friendly acted like they did not care rather you were there or not. Food was fair not the best. Needs a makeover. Needs a door going into the lobby that handcap people can use.

We stopped at Cumberland to stretch our legs during a long trip up the Interstate. I can't speak for the lodge or the cabins, but the park area is very well maintained and the trails are excellent. We opted for the 2.5 mile Eagle Falls trail and it was a great choice. Not long after leaving the trailhead, there is... More

My husband and I had planned a romantic weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We decided on the DuPont Lodge. I spoke with a girl on the phone and was told that the Woodland Cottages were a two story cabin. I was on their website looking at the photos as we spoke. When we arrived we were sent to the most...

The waterfall is amazing! You can get right on it and feel the mist falling on you. There is no hiking to this falls. Its like 5 mins from the parking lot. There is multiple views of the falls. Top, bottom and far views. They have hiking trails as well at this park, but warning to all, the Eagle Falls... More

The falls are fantastic to see and there are numerous hiking trails you can take. We loved the eagle falls trail well worth the 2.5 mile hike.

The falls were beautiful...but the moon bow was not that nice....pics show it with colors ....it was just a grayish bow....if you stay at the lodge ask for room 211 if you only need king size bed..the view was beautiful from the room...view of mountains....would stay there again.
