Very nice park with lots of things to do. The biggest problem was navigating around the park. The free maps included a road map and a trail map. Many of the trails start at the nature center. The road map says Cascades Nature Center and the hiking map Betty Dunn nature center. Looked like two different ones. However, it was... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend following a work conference held there the week before. We enjoyed the Paw Paw trail because we saw lots of flora and fauna, but no other humans. The other trails are crowded (at least on summer weekends). The hike down to the bottom of Fall Creek Falls is worthwhile. Cooling your... More

We did the horseback riding, and it was such a waste. They don't take reservations, so when we showed up it took over an hour to get the horses saddled up. The ride was 1 hour through the forest on heavily rutted roads even the horses stumbled on. With all the natural beauty in this park, I couldn't believe our... More

Took our trailer and cat to this beautiful park. Woke up to a booming thunderstorm but it moved on. Big campground. Staff at check in were indifferent . I had to ask a question to get information about where our site was. Waterfalls are not flowing this time of year. Just not enough water. Hiking is great. Wildlife is abundant.... More

We came down to Tennessee to visit Cummins Falls, but when we got there at 4pm, we realized we wouldn't have enough time to get to the falls and back before the park closed for the night. Rather than rush, we figured we would just come back the next day. So on a whim we thought we would check out... More

August is not the month and Saturday is not the day to visit. The park is beautiful. But it was also terribly overcrowded on Saturday, August 13. Also, the water flow over the falls was minimal -- more like a trickle or spray than a real falls.

Spent the day in the park. Lots of hiking trails, scenic vistas accessable on foot and in your car. Hiked the trail to the base of the falls, it's short under a mile round trip, but a good elevation change. I think it's worth it for the view at the bottom. You can swim down there if you'd like, there... More

What has a great family overnight stay in our RV. We will be back when we can stay longer. Never got to the pool or fishing but we did a lot of hiking and biking, especially liked the cable trail very unique.

Dont expect help from any of the park rangers or staff if you're lost and walking in the rain with your pets because they will not stop and offer assistance. And the guy who works at the store inside the park would have taken $20 from us if we hadnt called him on it. Park is nice, camping spots are... More

This is a beautiful state park that includes a golf course, camp sites and fantastic views. The tallest waterfalls in the east although in August not the greatest volume of water. Still very impressive to see. I think during the spring runoff would be more spectacular.
