No falls this week do the drought - but still a very nice little city park. They were busy decorating for Christmas. Very pleasant, nice walking trails, cute little petting zoo with friendly animals and friendly staff. Everyone was friendly as can be - and would be a consistent place for us with youngsters.

This is a hidden gem in Bama land, one worth taking time to explore. A unique history and configuration, situated adjacent to a cool small city with many accoutrements for outside activities.

We took a day trip to the falls for our anniversary. Due to a drought the falls were trickling. We enjoyed and can't wait to go back to see it.

The park itself was wonderful and beautiful but when we got to the exhibits it was sad. The lions exhibit was so little for such a big animal and he was super fat which any other place I've been the lions aren't supposed to be so fat. we went into the barn where other animals were and it was pretty...

We spent just one night in the campground, but found it very quiet and comfortable. Check-in was quick and the clerk was friendly and helpful. The only disappointment that the falls were a mere trickle, but we can only blame mother nature for not providing enough rain in the area for that. The rest of the park was beautiful.

There isn't much information to be found about pet rules, so here is a little info. Pets are not allowed in the park. Pets are allowed in the campground but must have someone with them at all times. The parking lot at the park itself does not have very many shady parking spots so if you are traveling there isn't... More

We have visited the falls many times including the part you pay to visit. This was our first visit tent camping. The campsite itself was nice and only $16. The website for reserving was the city website and did not seem well organized. We called ahead for a reservation, and the employee told us just to come on down. The... More

We went here for a quick get away. The Weather Channel had it listed as one of the 50 best roads trips in the country. We were sorely disappointed. Incredibly touristy, kind of dirty and just a trickle coming over the rocks. It's a cool formation and I imagine at the right time of year, it would have been quite... More

We will NEVER stay at this campground again. We stayed 2 nights & will never be back. It started with our calling ahead to make sure this place had firewood. They said they did, but when we got there for check in around 1:30, they had no firewood at all. The campsites are VERY close together, right on top of... More
