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

Very beautiful state park and great hiking trails! It's a little confusing to get around at first. I would recommend visiting this park.

The falls are beautiful but the angle that the viewing platforms were kinda odd... More

We relocated to Crossville, TN recently and went hiking at Fall Creek Falls. The weather was perfect, cool and sunny. The leaves were just started to turn and we enjoyed the hiking very much. I'm a sucker for a water fall so this was really nice for me. We packed a picnic lunch and noted there are pklenty of areas... More

From overlook it offers a trail (0.4 Miles — Natural Surface — Difficult) that can take you to the base of the falls for the gorgeous views of falls. Spend more than an hour in the base, there is big rock just opposite to the falls you can sit there, relax and get drenched. Later taken a Lower Loop trail... More

We have been here several times to hike. The hiking is great. The camp ground is huge. The first 2 loops of sites are nice; but the rest of the campground is a big field with some spaces sliced up. We have never camped here because of the unattractiveness of the camp sites. I see people riding bikes but I... More
