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!
…well, at least up to two weeks, because that's the park limit.
Fall Creek Falls is the largest park in Tennessee, and it is, well, big! There's a ton to do and it's in such a beautiful spot. I like to think of this state park as a beginner South Cumberland (in hiking at least!). There's a few hiking trails with plenty of overlooks and waterfalls and a suspension bridge to a nature center. There's also a trail down to the bottom of Fall Creek Falls where you can swim.
The campsites are nice with a bath house and firepits and there is a whole complex and general store not too far from the campsites. There's even a mini laundry mat and a snack bar! Just a ton to do especially if you have kids.
I would recommend this state park as a family vacation!
So much to do at this park, Waterfalls are great and hiking is very nice. We have gone may times. One of our favorites.
Really neat geology throughout. Waterfalls cascade down gorges surrounded by grey layered rocks (shale?). Tons of hiking options (some moderate) and lots of accessible overlook areas too, something for everyone. Good water activities (rentals on site), mountain biking, wildlife. This is a pretty popular area so some of it is kind of touristy (like the zip line and gift shops). Also a hotel and cabins on site. Camping sites are not too large nor private and pretty kid friendly. I've only been in the fall when it's less crowded, I'd probably avoid it in the summer! Nice basic amenities at the camp site, as expected with a State Park.
I've been camping here many times, in multiple places—the full RV-hookup campground, the group camps, and the walk-in sites. All are worth checking out! All of them are clean, although they can be pretty crowded during the summer. Fall Creek Falls has lots of beautiful hikes + swimming areas, so you might want to have access to a car (or at least bring a bike) to explore the whole thing. It's a great place to camp!
Awesome area to visit with a few easy hiking trails as well as great waterfalls and swimming areas. Can be busy at times, especially when it is hot outside.
Tent camp here with the family. I would recommend the walk in tent sites if you can get them. Campground is spread out well in places and not so much in others. Horseback riding, hiking trails, fishing, and much more. Last time we spent 3 days and could have easily spent another day or two. Plan on returning for some back country camping on the overnight loops.
