My family and I stayed here on our way to the Smoky Mountains and had a great time! Our room was just your usual State Park accommodations. The real star is the park. There are many trails to hike and a cool waterfall that you can wade out to. We had breakfast and dinner in the Lodge and it was... More

Very enjoyable hiking to the bottom of the falls. Something the whole family could enjoy. The swimming was exhilarating and fun. Unfortunately we did not get to stay as long as we wanted as the weather was very rainy.

If you plan to visit Tennessee, please check out the natural wonder of Fall Creek Falls state park! You will not believe how very beautiful this huge waterfall is as well as the wilderness areas, camping areas, hotel and commendations. I try to go once a year to take photos and enjoy. The food is very good in the restaurant,... More

The drive to the park was very scenic from hwy 111. I wish there was a trail that took you to the bottom of the falls. The swing bridge was very cool, probably a little scary for some though ! I suggest you see this site but allow yourself plenty of time because it is 15 miles of winding back... More

My wife and I visited on Nov 24th, 2014. Although it was a little out of our way on our trip to Atlanta via Chattanooga from Virginia Beach, we're glad we went and intend to return the next time we're in the area. Our GPS had no problem directing us to the park. We arrived a day after a heavy... More

We went there twice in August. It's a great place for a day visit. Walking trails of various difficulty levels, an opportunity to swim in several places, many spots with beautiful views accessible by car. So even when it's bad weather the visit can be enjoyable. Plan at least a day for the visit (or come overnight).

This park needs to be at the top of everyone's day trip list. Free State Park! It is only 1 1/2 from Chattanooga and worth every minute of the car ride. There are 5 water falls in the park. All of them accessible with in a short walk from the parking lot. We entered the park at the main entrance... More

The hikes are not too difficult and you can rest along the way, there are swinging bridges, waterfalls, natural bridges, and caves to explore. Overnight camping by permit is allowed.

A friend recommended Fall Creek Falls State Park as one of her favorite places to visit for its beauty and tranquility. She was right! And it is amazing that when you are visiting Nashville, this incredible beauty is literally less than 2 hours away! We did check out reviews before we went just to get an idea of what the... More

We did see the fall, but it was not what we had expected from all the hype. A trickle, didn't seem that tall, and the angle from the viewing platform was poor. Then, we took what was suppose to be an easy trail, and found that the stairs are boxes of wood filled with gravel! My elderly mother fell down!... More
