  • The bath houses were immaculate. Showers updated. So much to see and do if you like the outdoors. Hiking a trail can take you to a waterfall, past a cave, across a bridge, or on an overlook.  more »

  • 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.
  • The best campground I have ever stayed in. Quiet. The bathhouse was extremely clean. Friendly people. Lots of hiking and beautiful scenery. If you try hiking the Desoto Scout Trail, Exit 2 has a great pool at the bottom on the West Fork of the Little River.
  • This is one of my favorite parks. Have stayed in one of the older cabins built by the ccc. They are very quaint. Hike the trail close to the store to see a couple small waterfalls
  • This area is so picturesque and beautiful. The trails are easy to follow and scenic. It is a great place for a beginner hiker as the trails aren't too difficult.
  • Nice trails with little waterfalls throughout! You can veer off the path and find swimming holes! Water was cold but clean. Trails were relatively decently marked. It wasn't too crowded but I was there on a Tuesday.
