I grew up one mile from this gorgeous, busy park. The park is Lookout Mountain's Crowning Glory, with a ninety foot waterfall that's part of local, ancient Indian Lore. There's a pioneer village, with a post office, cook house, at least 2 cabins, a privy (outhouse) and a school/church building. A train ride will take you through all of this... More

The view of the falls is almost worth the drive on its own, but the added hiking trails on the north side really makes this a legitimate day trip.

I am happy that you don't have to pay to see the falls.Because if you go during a drought there won't be much of one. You do have to pay to ride the train,vist the animal habitat, and to hike the gorge trail which leads behind the falls. My six year old grandson enjoyed the animals and climbing on the... More

This is a wonderful to take the family, to enjoy a day out. Its even more beautiful and enjoyable at Christmas, to walk through the lights, have hot chocolate. Theres places to take a picnic lunch, train ride, live animals, playground, mini golf.

We went kind of spur of the moment because we were nearby and I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had! An interesting and informative pioneer village, a zoo area (with a LION!!!) a cute little train that was very welcome on a scorching summer day and of course the beautiful falls area. The only thing that kept... More

My little one loves trains and they say you can ride unlimited all day for admission price. We called to make sure the train was operating before we came and they said it shuts down weather permitting. It was a gorgeous day so we drove 1.5 hours and as soon as we got our tickets, they said the train is... More

Here for a long weekend to take a class. Site was easily accessible with our 38.5ft fifthwheel, full hook up. Pool looked clean, we just didn't have time to enjoy it, maybe next visit. There was a huge benefit going on in the park adjacent to the campground and we saw lots of families going to and from it, the... More
