Great park. Nicely maintained, friendly staff, spacious and spread out sites. We stayed in walk-in 19. It's a half mile from parking and the comfort building, and the trail is covered in tree routes, so wheeled items (coolers, wagons) may not do very well. But what a great place to get outside! No bugs in October. Did see some armadillos!
Once settled, go hike! The West Rim trail is manageable. Be careful with dogs, as parts of the trail have grated stairs, and dog feet don't do well on the grates.
But the view are spectacular.
With more time, we would have done the waterfalls trails as well.
In all, excellent place. Will certainly go back.
We spent a week in Fort Mountain and we can’t say enough about how wonderful it was. The sites are beautiful and feel very private. The facilities are spotless, and the staff at the visitor’s center/store were terrific. The overlooks were spectacular: absolutely beautiful.
Overall good place to visit. Some sites are squeezed too close together but there are great sites scattered all throughout the park. It’s a large park with 4 camp loops, hiking is good with the main waterfall worth the walk into the canyon. The park seems well maintained and clean, bath houses were clean and had spacious showers. Only reason I didn’t give a 5 star review is with luck of the draw your site may be a little crowded.
We stayed for 4 nights in walk in site 21. It was bit interesting to get all our stuff to the site, and thank goodness we had 2 wagons and teens to help carry. It was a great private site, allowing for a good size tent and 3 hammocks. Easy access to the West Rim trail which was a terrific hike. Waterfalls were dry, which was disappointing but the hike to them from the West Rim Trail was quite pretty.
Note that the Visitor Center had no wood left, having arrived on a Sunday. We saw a sign for wood delivery and called Mac. He was very accommodating, delivered wood within a couple of hours to us in the parking lot. A great price! Call Mac at 423-596-4805.
All in all we had a great experience.
I moved to Falls Creek Falls to get away from Rain and storms to the Southeast. I have a small Motorcycle camper and had a friend along with his. the electric sites were a bit expensive for not needing hook ups. 30 Bucks a night but we put both campers on one site. There are lots of facilities and the bathhouses are very clean and maintained. There are stores onsite for knickknacks and soft supplies. A restaurant/grill that has some pretty good food. Firewood is available for 10 bucks a bundle. It was Poplar wood and very green but you just have to know a bit about firewood and dig through the pile to find dry. All the roads are paved and the sites are somewhat level. The falls are worth seeing. Even though I like more primitive surroundings, I will probably stay there again.
