Not a huge park but got some nice trials. Great view of waterfalls. Probably one of the nicest visitor center I've seen for state parks.

Gorges State Park
Started not to stop but sure glad we did. They just finished the visitor center building and it’s one of the nicest I’ve seen. (Must have cost a fortune.) If you’re in the area, be sure and take the short diversion. The Ranger said they still have a lot of work throughout the park (camping still not available).

I always go to Whitewater Falls which is about 5 minutes from Gorges and finally drove into Gorges one day. Glad I did. Looks just like a waterfall that would be on a tropical island. The waterfall has the spray coming off of it and looks so pretty because you are very close to it. For a look at a very tall waterfall you should also go to Whitewater.

The park is new and they just opened a beautiful visitors center. They are in the process of building a camping area. I would check the website for updates. We walked to Rainbow Falls which is actually located outside the park in Pisgah National Forest. It is not an easy 1.5 mile trail but it is well worth the effort.

Everything is brand new facilities wise and very well laid out. Great place for a picnic and enjoying the nature.
