Took a nice walk around the lake with my family. There is something for everyone at this park. Kayaks, paddle boats, ect. It was a hot day but not too bad on the trails under the trees.

We planned a stop on our road trip through TN and I'm so glad we did! The waterfalls are beautiful and we followed the trail down to the bottom with our 5 and 7 year olds. We were all amazed!

This has to be one of the most beautiful parks in Tennessee which has MANY great parks. The falls are absolutely beautiful with stunning scenic views. We had lunch at the restaurant at the inn and were very happy with the food and the prices.

Nice hike to beautiful falls. Some pretty steep inclines, but worth it when you get to the falls. It definitely wore the dogs out, they slept the whole way back to our cabin!

Okay, I'm angry with myself. I've known about Fall Creek Falls for years, having seen the signs as we've passed by going to and from places such as the Smokey Mountains or the east coast beaches. Since it's almost an hour off the interstate, though,...More

the falls are gorgeous and if you can tolerate the hiking down to the base its worth it. the walk to the overlook is easy to get to but any of the trails if you have a hard time getting around don't go on them.

no, but you can get there by way of a small walk from the parking lot. there are places to sit if you need to and they also have a bathroom.
