We definitely enjoyed our visit. Sites in Campground c were very tight and in a field. Many of the tent sites were on a huge hill. We would stay in a different area if we returned. It was very busy on the trails but we were able to find some less traveled sites.
My expectations were high but they were not met. The tent sites in camp C were the worst I’ve seen in a TN state park. They are on top of each other and on a horrible incline. They are tiny and I would not recommend. The RV sites in the other camp areas seemed like better options. They had 2 trails down which had both of the bridges and we had no idea till we got there. We enjoyed finding smaller trails that we found as to the bigger over populated ones advertised.
We had a great time in section B, site 122. We have a 34 ft fifth wheel and had plenty of space. Love the onsite grill and the excellent hiking trails. The only downside is that the sites are very unlevel, even when the description says level.
Many reasons, actually. There’s tons of hiking trails, plenty of water to play on, lots of great day use areas, and a general store with everything you might need.
We stayed one as the primitive camp area. It was clean with scattered trees. Our site was pretty sloped, so when the site description says that, know there is no level ground! The park was full! The trails were nice. The scenery beautiful. The gorge swimming hole was a hit with my daughter and dog. Dogs are allowed. Bath house was clean. There is a swimming pool but we didn’t get over there.
I camped here with a friend and our dogs. The park has 5 different camping loops plus backcountry campsites. We spent one night in loop B. The campsites have a picnic bench, a firepit and a lantern pole. We also had electricity and a water spigot. We stayed in B62. It was more designed for an RV or Camper than a tent, but we found space on the side to set up our tents. The bathhouse was decent. The state park has a lot of amenities. There is a general store, just in case you forgot something. They also have a nice visitor and nature center and an outfitter store. If you are not into hiking, you can go fishing, boating, golfing or zip lining. If you are not in the mood to cook, you can visit the snack bar. They have pizza, sandwiches and burgers. But the actual restaurant and the Inn are still under construction until 2022. If you like hiking, the park offers a lot of different trails. They have shorter ones near the nature center amd longer overnight trails with campsites. Some of the trails are very strenuous like the cable trail. When we visited, the swinging bridge was closed due to construction. It is a beautiful piece of nature and we really enjoyed our stay. However it can be very crowded on the weekends and in peak season.
Campground has some great spots. A little cautious at first since this was our first trip since Corona. Loop A has new bath house. Brand new ranger station/camp store. Nice people. Overall a great place to camp.
Wonderful hiking experience for beginners, plenty of beautiful scenery. Very dark at night time, especially with little moon, the stars were jaw dropping.
One of the best hiking parks I’ve ever been to. Miles and miles of trails; short, long, loops, overnights. This place has it all. Make sure you do three things while you’re there: hike to the bottom of the big waterfall (Fall Creek Falls), swim in the cascades next to the nature center, and stand on the edge of the bluff at Buzzard’s Roost (not the scenic overlook but the actual rock jutting over the valley, accessed by a small trail near the overlook parking lot.
The park offers several campgrounds than can accommodate RV's, tent camping and primitive campsites. There are water and electrical hookups at all sites except the primitive. There are bathhouses and even cabin rentals for those who prefer that. You can purchase ice, firewood and food at the camp store on property and there is also a place to do your laundry for a small fee. Each site offers a table and grill. All are drive up except the primitive sites. This park has the highest free falling waterfall (256 feet) East of the Mississippi River! There are plenty of activities and hiking to explore just visit the parks website for more information!
