  • I love this place, beautiful rustic log cabins built way back . Lots of hiking trails and a river to explore. Near little river canyon.  more »

  • This is such a beautiful place. The cabins are clean and well-maintained. Nice hiking trails, including at least one that is wheelchair accessible. Near other beautiful places such as Little River Canyon National Preserve. Whether a perk or a drawback, it is very much a rural area so it has spotty cell service.
  • Very clean park. Really beautiful nature. We came through to find Waterfalls for the weekend and it did not disappoint. Found 4 this past weekend. Definitely beautiful parks up in North Alabama.
  • This park was a great place to have a family reunion. It was perfect since some had RVs while others needed a cabin or hotel-like accommodations and even supported the few that wanted to sleep in tents. Very clean and well-kept park.
  • Gorgeous! Nice trails. The waterfall... Breakfast on the deck at the lodge. Treat yourself. I heard they were updating the chalets. Already charming in a retro 70s way, but sure to be better. It's the natural beauty & enchanting area of our earth that reigns here.
  • This is the best state park we have ever been to. Nearly every site is perfect, and I can't say enough about the staff! They are terrific. Quiet,and beautiful.
