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

We spent a half-day at the park but could easily have made it much longer. The number of trails and falls to visit was impressive. Would also have brought my bike and my fishing gear, as day permits are available. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. There are plans for repairs to the lower trail to Fall Creek Falls....

We went to this park on a random motorcycle weekend road trip. We came to see the waterfall, which is beautiful. We even hiked the short but steep trail to the bottom. It is worth it! However, I wish we had time to stay. The lake, the campground, the pool, the golf course, and the many trails all looked awesome.... More

There are lots of trails so you can take an easy, moderate or strenuous hike. We went on a Saturday and were surprised at how few people were actually hiking--it felt like we had some trails all to ourselves. Lots of spectacular views--make sure to go to each overlook for great photo opportunities.

We took 5 children ages 1 - 10 camping for 4 days. The restrooms at the campsite were clean and well lit. The playgound at the campsite was a great added feature. The kids loved playing there and meeting new kids. Camp site was clean with water and electric. Hiking trails all over the park. There is also a laundry... More
