Visited about a year ago, this was an excellent state park in north east Georgia. It was September, we stayed here a night in camping site, the staff were friendly. They have other things to do: moonlight hikes, guided tours, some little picnic areas and a nice information center and gift shop as well, but I think the lake at... More

I love this area and go by here every time I am heading to North Carolina. There is a lot more history to this area than a lot of people know about and I would suggest going to their exceptional visitors center and checking out all of the exhibits and displays. Then I suggest a pic nic by the river... More

We were so impressed with this State Park. We camped there and did so many things. We were lucky enough to get passes to hike to the bottom of the gorge to see several waterfalls, and swim at sliding Rock. We rode bikes to the sandy beach ; we drove our 4 wheel drive jeep 4 & 1/2 miles down... More

Family of 5 with youngest 7 years old. Did the hurricane falls loop ( do not need permit for this trail) which was 2.5 miles. Took 2 hours. 1000 steps which was brutal, but we survived. Kids did better than parents :) numerous overlooks of gorge and dam. Above ninety degrees and went at noon, bring lots of water and... More

Great day at Tallulah! Made it down and back from the gorge -- legs like rubber afterwards, but it was well worth it! Overlook 1 is often overlooked (no pun intended), so be sure to go to it -- you see the actual metal tower erected for the Great Wallenda's tight rope walk across the gorge...and the best overall view...

We hiked on a Sunday morning and drove in from Atlanta. After reading other reviews, we planned to arrive before the welcome center opened at 8am to get in line for a permit to hike the floor of the Gorge. We arrived 15 minutes early and barely made the cutoff. We sat in a class for 15 minutes with a... More

I heard about this park from the girl that cuts my hair. She said it was a great day trip, so the hubby and I got up at 4 am and trekked the 3 hours from Middle Georgia to Tallulah Falls. I read that they only give out 100 passes a day so I wanted to get there early to... More

Tallulah Gorge state park is one of those places you really have to see to believe. The Interpretive Center has fantastic photos showing the difference in the river's flow before and after the hydroelectric dam was constructed about a century ago, as well as some very interesting historical background on the fight between GA Power and Helen Dortch Longstreet in...

Arrived around 10 ish and did not make it in time for permit to the gorge floor. Not a problem since hiking throughout the park was still fabulous. Super STRENUOUS hike up and down endless amounts of stairs, rocky paths and suspension bridges. Clean, shady paths throughout with very knowledgeable and helpful park staff. Cooled off in the Terrora River... More

After a day of exploring Franklin, North Carolina, I asked my daughter would she like to drive over the state line into Rabun Gap, Georgia. We drove with no destination in mind...and happened upon Tallulah Gorge State Park. We weren't sure of what to expect and decided to check it out. It was getting late, but a ranger gave us... More
