Visited to hike and see the falls and were very pleased. The falls were amazing. To reach below, be prepared to climb rocks. Certainly worth the climb to feel the water falling down. Make sure you listen for the sirens and evacuate as needed.

We camped in the tent only campground for two nights in June with four adults and one child. We had a great time. The park is gorgeous and well maintained. The campgrounds were clean and spacious. There are events for children through out the day. I didn't expect that! There was so much to do with the hiking, swimming, and... More

We were invited to a wedding that was being held at the Pavilion near the river at the park and when we arrived there, we could see why they chose that location for their big day! Beautiful is an understatement! When you enter the park you see a beautiful lake type area with a dam and once you arrive at... More

we went to see the falls, which are really beautiful, but also the whole area of rock island is very interesting, with history, an old mill (closed) a quaint little town

I truly enjoyed my trip!! I had no idea what to expect, but I was delighted by what I found. It is a breathtaking place which cannot be conveyed in words or pictures. The people are very warm and friendly. I felt very welcome and safe. I hope to return again soon for a much longer stay that will include... More

The park is built along a river gorge. Gorgeous waterfalls and hiking. Supposedly, you can wade into the river and get closer to the falls during the summer, but during the winter the river was very high and limited accessibility to those features.

This is only 2 hours out of Nashville, but was a really nice surprise. I didn't know we had water falls like this in TN; absolutely beautiful. There were trails, as well as boats that you could rent while you were there. Loved it and recommend it for getting away; the country roads drive was a great part of the... More

We visitor Rock Island State Park as part of our family Christmas and stayed in one of the cabins. They were not bad at all and very reasonable. Three bedrooms, two baths, kitchen and sitting area were the cabin's floor plan. We went hiking on one of the many trails and saw multiple deer and wild turkey. The river was... More
