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.
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.
Great park. There are so many great trails and waterfalls here. There are two main waterfalls but if you continue the trails there are many more. We stayed in west camp site #9. We loved our site. It backed to wooded area and was spacious but there is no buffer between sites. Water and electric and site was gravel and there are gray water dumps throughout camp. We could get to trails from the back of our campsite which was awesome. There is an east camp which is closer to the canyon rim but sites are closer together and not much shade. The 2 main waterfalls are a short hike once you go down 300 stairs. But therefore you must go up 300 stairs. There are plenty of platforms to rest. There are also yurts to rent. There is a small town with grocery and fast food about 30 minutes away. Chattanooga is not far from this park. We stayed 5 days and it was not enough time to hike and relax. We absolutely loved this park. Beware waterfalls are dependent upon rainfall. We camped here in April. Water flow was great. Temps were great 70s in day and got down to 40s at night. Perfect camping weather.
We don’t need much space, we have a tiny tent and don’t have any other gear, and it was still tight. We drove 2 hours from Knoxville for this. Total waste of gas. The camp slots on area -C are so close to one another that most people couldn’t use their fire pits for fear of burning their own tent, or their neighbor’s. Every time a camper came in, people panicked fearing their cars were going to get hit because the road and is so unbelievably narrow and inches close to tents and parking spaces. The space issue also means this is an extremely loud place. If you’re looking for a small spot to pitch your tent and spend some time in silence, keep going. This is not the place. Edit: at around 11:30 pm, a camper arrived and tried really hard to get into a spot next to ours, even though they clearly didn’t fit. In the process, they almost ran us over in our tent. We ended up packing our stuff and driving two hours back home. We will not be coming back.
We stopped over for a night on the way to Gatlinburg. Very nice park located about 30 miles from any larger town. There were 6 couples traveling together and we stayed in site A18. The sites are small, unlevel and really hard to get in to. Every one of us had a pretty rough time getting into the site and one of our group had to change sites twice. Water, sewer and electricity on our site but our back door was 4.5 feet off the ground and required 3 blocks on the side! Good thing it was just a stop over!
