This is a nice place to visit any time of the year. The scene changes dramatically in the Fall and Winter months. Be there throughout 4 seasons and enjoyed all
Our little family went for a ride and ended up here. What a beautiful site to see. I hated to leave, but all things have to end. I loved it.
This is a lovely state park. We hiked several trails. We began by stopping by the country store and getting a map and checking out the nature center. The girls picked up activity sheets to work on getting a Nature Badge. We drove down to Desoto Falls first and walked around. We then stopped by the Sallie Howard church and... More
Would have been nicer if wasn't obstructed by a man made concrete structure that has a concrete pipe disbursing water. Okay waterfall, I guess (if you haven't seen many)but if you have hiked the Smoky's this one, well Is a disappointment.

The park is immaculate. Drive slowly. Don't miss a thing. The store, the wild life learning center. Clean atmosphere. Beautiful cabins.Great restaurant. Swimming among many sport activities available. Walking trails and water falls.
