We live in Nashville, Tn. and try to come to Fall Creek falls once a month all summer long! We love swimming in the Cascade falls swimming hole and having a pic nic afterwards ! Just make sure that you get to the swimming hole between 11am. and 3pm. because the water is ICE ICE FREEZING COLD even in August!... More

Have lived three hours from this park for years. Finally made it a point to visit. We visited for an Astronomy Weekend. It was great! Wish we had visited sooner. So much to do in this park as long as you like the outdoors. The wildlife is beautiful and so tame. The Astronomy Weekends are very interesting. All kinds of... More

This place is great – a treasure in the wilderness. Park at the nature center, go over the suspension bridge, and hike the one-mile trail to Fall Creek Falls. It’s worth the beautiful walk with several stopoff scenes and gorge views of the other falls. The trails are well maintained with steps and the sand and the usual domesticated “hiking”... More

I live in Tennessee and happen to be working in the area when one of the partners mentioned how good the food is at the State Park restaurant. Well, we had to sample the fare and found it was really a good buffet. It was not overpriced and the scenery was breathtaking! So we went a little further and discovered... More

We stayed here July 31-Aug 2 with our little yorkie. We had a pet room at the inn and it was clean. The rooms are outdated and do not have a fridge or microwave so we took a cooler and it worked out well. We were going to eat the Friday seafood bar but the wait was 1.5 hours and... More

Had a great time walking the trail to the falls. Beautiful area just remember if you dont want to walk the 1.5 mile hike you can drive to the top of falls. Found out afterwards about the drive. You cant take strollers the hike takes you up uneven paths and lots os stairs. You even get to cross the bridge.... More

Had a beautiful drive through the Park. Very helpful folks at the General Store. The park is well kept and well marked. We'll definitely be back with the grandkids.

We took the overnight hike but did it in one day. It was a pretty tough hike and there were several large trees down blocking the trails. Not too hard finding the correct path though. A lot of families were there and there were a lot of people camping. Some of the bathroom facilities really need to be cleaned and... More

We enjoyed this state park so much that we went 2 days in a row! We swam in that awesome ice cold swim hole - so clean fresh water! Gorgeous waterfalls! Stunning and a wonderful experience! It was quite a hike up to the lookout but the view was worth it! Stunning nature and all for free!!! Enjoyed a bunch!!!

Have been for the second time in 5yrs. Saw it from different side. Crossed the suspension bridge for the first time and I must say it was a bit scary. The bridge needs some repair I must say, but hopefully the park is inspecting this and seems to think its safe enough. Trails are wide enough and we could see... More
