This is a beautiful destination with something for everyone! If you just want to drive and enjoy the view or walk to the falls this is the place for you! Whether you're two or ninety you will find something to your liking. It's definitely one of Tennessee's gems!

I have the pleasure of visiting this park once a year for a leadership institute. Our group is there every July for a week. They are in the process of renovating cabins and the lodge over the next year. I stayed in a lakeside cabin this year for the first time and it was spectacular! These cabins are 3/2 so... More

We had such a great day and was a great way to spend the day as a family. You won't need a lot of jumpers or scarves as it gets quite warm walking over the entire state park. We walked around most of the time with just boots, jeans and a tank top.

It doesn't get old returning again and again, as long as there has been rain. The big fall was a less than hoped for but at least it wasn't down to a trickle, so there was a little refreshing mist. Going back up the trail can be a bit of a challenge, and walking on the rocky trail with water... More

I am from the surrounding area and I have always loved Fall Creek Falls, but I haven't been there in about 11 years or so. I was not disappointed on our revisit today. The park is absolutely beautiful, there are great hiking trails and the park is large enough that you can find plenty to do. My son and I... More

If you are in the area, you must see the state park and water falls. There are several water falls. The one that you can swim in was the cascades near the Nature center. Fantastic experience, walking around the falls in the water and sliding down the rocks. The wet rocks are extremely slippery, have waters shoes is a huge... More

We stopped here for An overnight stay on our drive home from Atlanta to Chicago. Our biggest regret was we were only here one day. It was a hidden gem. There were so many places to hike and places to enjoy. They have all kinds and levels of trails. You can play under the falls and in the pools, just... More

They are right, this is one of the best state parks in the U.S. I think somebody rated it in the top ten in the U.S. This is better than some of the National Park Service parks I have visited--without the bureaucracy. Nice people at the desk and in the restaurant. Good signs on the trails. Trails are pretty worn,... More

This reminds me of Gatlinburg before all the tourists moved in. Has a great Lodge and hotel, cool retro looking, but modern, cabins on the lake. Lots of trails for teens with too much energy to burn. Breathtaking vistas that overlook deep canyons, and the state's tallest waterfall. Security appears to be good too as there is a visible presence... More

This is one of my favorite parks in Tennessee. You'll be hard pressed to see it all in one day, but it is a great place to spend all day enjoying the outdoors. There is something for people of all activity levels. If you don't want to do a bunch of strenuous hiking you can drive through the park and... More
