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.

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.

Was hoping for a wonderful flow of water over this falls with such a beautiful story, but we didn't see much water since it was on the hot side and not much rain. It was still beautiful to see but would have been more so...More

I hate to write bad reviews but we were not impressed with this campground. The spaces are so close together that you have zero privacy. There also was no fire ring or grill. I knew the grills were spaced out amongst the camping spaces but...More

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