This is a different, scenic place to cool off and relax. The crowds that visit are sketchy, so be warned that characters come to this park, because it IS free. However, the falls are welcoming and inviting to those who wants to sit on the rocks and just be refreshed, or those seeking more adventure can slide down a rapid or two in rafts. Some choose to jump off the rocks into the reservoir. Visitors can just sit by the water and relax. Great spot for pictures! Popular summer attraction for sure. Dogs love to visit the park too. I recommend checking it out if you are in the area!

Took at trip to the park to take pictures of Cooleemee Falls. What a view! After parking in the lot, walk down a trail for a short distance. You can hear the Falls before you can see them. The trail ends up at the river, then look to your left. Wow! There is a large rock face that runs down into the river. Be careful it could be slipper. There is a nice beach area for sunbathing. Swimming is at your own risk. (The rocks are slippery and the water fast moving). Great for photos. There is a restroom near the parking lot and a picnic area. Good for a day trip.
