Noccalula falls is a beautiful waterfall with very easy access. No hiking involved to see this beauty. It is a great place to take the kids. There is a park with a train and various things for the kiddos. It has hiking trails as well.

I love to visit the Falls anytime of the year, but this time of year, with the beautiful holiday lights, it is enchanting to visit. After a heavy rain is the best time to see the powerful waterfall. But even if there's a small amount...More

We went to see the Christmas lights. Slightly raining. Nothing was posted on their page until after 630. I don't understand why the lights were on and they were closed. Got two very disappointed children. Don't think I will come back.

Decided to stop quickly at the falls before we headed out of town. Well worth it! The falls are beautiful.

We didn't have time to go to the park itself, where fees are charged for certain activities (miniature golf, small kid's train, etc). So we parked at the campground entrance (has a huge parking lot) and took a short walk over to the falls. There...More

We made a quick stop on our way through AL with our 3 kids. There was not much water flowing so our children weren’t impressed and there are lots of fences that restricted where you could explore.

Yes, there is a picnic area under some pavilions. I'm not positive that they have to be reserved, but probably so.
