  • We stayed at the campground for the weekend & were overall disappointed. The campsites were on top of each other; they had a small ring made out of rocks for the firepit and it was not very big; and t...  more »
  • One of the best places to take your family to if you are into nature. And one of the best places to take them to if your not. It's just breathtaking. 
  • First time here in years and first time visit to the Christmas Lights Festival. Normally have two trains running through the park, but had a breakdown when we got our tickets, so we walked the gardens...  more »
  • When I was a child several years ago this place was fabulous to me. Most recently my son had his second grade field trip there and he loved it as well as all the other second graders that attended. We were very grateful at how easy they made the trip. They have added so much more since I was a child and now the area is just as great but with more options inside the park. Conveniently located to several surrounding counties and not very costly to attend and participate. Highly recommended as a place to attend as a group.
  • Well kept grounds. No water at the falls but still pretty hike. Train rides for all. Zoo area - feed and pet the animals. Gift shop. Clean Restrooms. Vending machines. Free parking. Admission fee is low.
  • Great price /location nice bath house. WiFi so overloaded, couldn't get on,20 attempts. Waterfall no water. Felt safe, great staff. Store across street.
  • It is a local, state, regional & national treasure! Be mesmerized by Mother Nature right here in Etowah County! #nature #beauty #NaturalIsm #NaturalSplendor #camping #hiking #waterplay
  • I have been going there since I was a kid. A lot has changed but the falls is still a wonderful place to go. I don't go into the part where you have to pay so I don't know anything about the caged animals. I like to hike down along the bank and go under the falls. Yes it's a little hard getting down, and back up but if you know where to go you will be ok as long as you wear good sturdy shoes and are able to walk down steep inclines. I have a lot of physical problems but I suck it up and hike down anyway. It is worth it.
