A little getaway close to town. Beautiful scenery and a shady trail around the lake. They also have some nature trails on the other side of the falls that give you a good hike along the creek. They have little stations for kids along the path to learn a little about the creatures who live there. The only thing that would make it better is if there was a sidewalk over the falls so cars don’t have to maneuver around people continuing around the lake. That can be a bit dangerous if there are a lot of people and traffic. Don’t forget the bread! The geese come up to you with their mouths open expecting something then walk away let down.

Campsites have water and electric, no sewer but sites are large, shaded, well spaced and well maintained. We stayed in a 40 ft class A with our two dogs. Trails were awesome to explore, many waterfalls in the area and even the camp restaurant was awesome when we were tired of cooking our own food. I would definitely come back again with my kids to explore more.

The park itself & the hiking trails were great! We stayed in TL3 cabin because we couldn’t get a camping space, all reserved for the time we wanted. The cabin was a dump. I understand a cabin being rustic, big difference in the cabin not having any repairs done. Kitchen tap coming out of sink, very little cooking utensils. Hornets nest above front door, screen completely coming off front door frame. Light bulbs burnt out, just very disappointed in the cabin. It would take very little money & effort to have some of these thing fixed. Obviously nobody cares!

Stopped here for about an hour. Such a beautiful park! Paved paths for walking through the woods by the creek were so peaceful. There are picnic tables and swings in different areas. No concession stands that I could see so bring what you'll need. There is some history here and markers along the way explain it all. Alot of the trees are marked with their names. I found that very helpful since I am not from that area. I think that no matter how much time you spend here will be well worth it.

We enjoyed walking around half the lake. It has cute boards for little ones that explains something in nature and asks the child to listen or look for things. The stone bridge, built during the Depression by the Civilian Conservation Corps which was a work program during the Great Depression. was impressive. Under the bridge water flows through the arches and down like a waterfall. Nice stop!

Only spent the night but it is a very pretty park. You can be in Crossville in 5 minutes if you want to shop or eat out. They also have an ADA accessible trail. The gravel at camp sites made me wish I had put my rug down each side had a fire ring, garbage pail, grill and table they also rent cabins and you can rent camp. The golf course is part of the park but you have to go outside and then back into the park Be prepared it is a Jack Nicklaus Signature course and a bit pricy

This review is more about our recent stay at one of the Timber Lodge cabins (TL3). The park is wonderful and I've spent many lovely days there. The cabin was beyond rustic and I think bordering on unsanitary and possibly structurally compromised. It's a pet friendly cabin so I understand and accept it might not be as clean as some of the others but this was beyond that. I wouldn't take my shoes off because I'm not sure if the floor had been cleaned since the 1980s. The bathroom was like something out of a gas station in a horror movie, gross with scratches on the door from people locking their dogs in the bathroom. The whole cabin had a slant to it and no way the railings on the deck (or the deck in general) was up to code. So much mold, if you have mold sensitivity just don't. The kitchen was fine and the furniture was pretty new. In summary the cabin was a dump and for a state park should have been better. I'm extremely disappointed not worth cost, just get a hotel.

We go every year for multi-family vacation and generally an extra few days by ourselves at Thanksgiving. Our preference is the Moderns, but the Rustics are enjoyable too, particularly since they have been remodeled. We did have an issue this last year with the fireplace in a Rustic -it would not draw properly and was unusable. A shame since that is a big part of the charm in cold fall visits. The storybook/handicapped trail is wonderful. Other trails are nice, but there is an overabundance of poison ivy. I am extremely allergic and that presents a difficulty. We also have a tiny dog and it's difficult to keep him out of it too because it's so prolific. My husband is not allergic and spends a lot of time on the trails. He loves them! I go kayaking and ride my tricycle 😊. Early summer we rent 5-6 cabins for family vacation. Kids love it! Overall, we all love it.

We traveled here a few times during our recent trip to Fairfield Glade. The park is absolutely beautiful. We hiked the Cumberland Plateau trail with our 4 small children twice bc they loved it so much. Had lunch at the restaurant and they were very welcoming and the food was great.
