Landmark Tourist Spot
The concept for the Little River Canyon Center project began in 1992 when discussions first began a partnership between the National Park Service and JSU. Funded through NASA and private donations, the LRC Center is a LEED certified project, designed with assistance from the NPS. The 23,000 square foot building includes office space, a museum, HD theatre, classrooms, library, restrooms, education store, outdoor trails and other amenities. Additional funds are being sought for the project’s museum exhibits and outdoor amphitheater.

The National Park Service, Alabama Power Company, DeKalb County Commission and many others have played an active and integral role in the development of the Little River Canyon Center. All recognize that the facility serves as a valuable tool for visitors, students, teachers and others interested in environmental sciences and natural resource protection.

  • Went there before it was a National Park. Many improvememts to river access since then. Very nice.
  • Great fun.. Scenic views
  • We got to the park and walked the trails. It was lower tide so we were able to walk near the waterfall. Its a beautiful thing. We did a almost 30 minute hike to the end of the trail and sat next to the waterfalls its really a beautiful place. Anybody visiting the area has to chrck it out. Its just amazing.
  • Awesome place. Wonderful accommodations and very friendly staff. One of the top national parks I've visited.
  • Beautiful driving trail with overlook stops and hiking trails. Get information here.
