All 26,000 acres of Fall Creek Falls State Park contain some of Tennessee’s most rugged beauty. Sharing its moniker with the waterfall of the same name, numerous other falls can also be found cascading through the park including Cane Creek, Piney, and Virgin Falls. Hike through the Cumberland Plateau and enjoy exploring 56 miles of trails in the park, countless natural caves, and even an 18-hole golf course!
Looking to rough it? You’re in luck. A strenuous four mile hike brings you to Virgin Falls, featuring 9 primitive campsites below the falls for the more adventurous camper.
For those seeking a less demanding camping experience, look no further. With over 220 campsites, camping at Fall Creek Falls State Park is a breeze and provides every luxury you could ask for. All sites come equipped with grills, water, tables, fire rings, and access to numerous bathhouses. Almost half of the sites have sewer connection and some will accommodate RVs up to 65 feet in length. Satisfy your every need at Fall Creek Falls!
There is so, so much to do at this park. Unfortunately, we only got to hike around the falls since the weather was so bad.
Tent camping review:
- Lots of flat space for your tent, a canopy and for parking
- Easy to put down stakes
- A ton of beautiful trees
- Mostly RVs - as tent campers, we were in the minority
- Bathrooms were a bit old school; I did not want to shower there
- A lot of trashcans closeby
- So many daddy longlegs
This park never disappoints!!! Very clean facilities. Breath taking views. Awesome adventure hiking trails!!! A family favorite for sure.
A group of friends met here for the Mountain Festival. In addition to an awesome time checking out food and craft venders there are some awesome trails and overlooks. There are several campgrounds to pick from. We were in D which is best for small campers and tents. Some of these sites are really close together, others have a lot of space to set up. There is a nice group camp site in the trees and some secluded sites on the back loop. The showerhouse is a little old but functional. Fall Creek Falls is going through renovations and they have some new areas already opened for your enjoyment. Zip lines, a nice swimming pool, an amphitheater, swing bridges, awesome waterfall overlooks and some strenuous climbs that are worth the journey.
Love this place. We come here every year for our family reunion. So much to do.
Love visiting this place lots of trails and hikes nature area waterfalls very good place for family and gets to visit
Such a beautiful park. Spacious sites. Lots of area to roam. Wildlife abundant. Hiking trails. Scenic drives. Lake sports. We will come back.
Very shaded and quiet. Nice store with anything you need. One of my favorite places to go.
Sseveral sections to choose from anything from hotel, cabins, tent, camper, or RV sites. Plenty of Hiking trails and a few and swimming spots. Fun for families, friends or couples.
From camping to hiking to kayaking to swimming to horseback riding and treetop adventure this park has it all. We visited in July and the temperature outside was tolerable. We camped in campground A and it was great for family camping. The trails are great. Swimming holes everywhere and the water is refreshingly cold. Saw a lot of baby deer this time of year. It is a bit far (30 minutes) from grocery store so bring enough supplies for your stay. We will come back to this location.
Enjoyed this park - very nice. The campsite was very clean and fairly easy to get around. I was pleasantly surprised to see all the play areas in each of the campground groupings. Very nice setup for kids of all ages. There's a huge pool by the lake that you can pay to swim in (11 feet deep at one end). The staff here is very friendly and helpful.
The one complaint I have with the park in general is lack of informational signs about the waterfalls - no warning that to get to certain waterfalls, involves climbing down/up trails that are nothing more then going up and over wet, slippery rocks (not the crushed gravel kind). I asked about this and they are working on getting more information out for this so that people who have health issues can decide whether to go or not. I did it but certainly wish I hadn't - it wasn't easy for someone who has had multiple knee surgeries and has severe asthma. Beyond more information, it would be nice if the handrail went the full length of the trail vs just half of it - that would help a lot!
All in all - very worth the trip to visit and camp here.
