  • I've noticed several improvements over the last few years that have made the park cleaner and much better aesthetically. One usually overlooked attraction is the cabin rentals. At around $115/night it is cheaper and easier to throw a sleepover in a rented cabin with entertainment all around the campground than to have a dozen teenagers in your own home or rent other local venues. Great for teams, church groups & birthdays or simply a weekend getaway.
  • Beautiful and convenient, next door to the park and zoo. The falls are gorgeous and from the park, you can walk down into the falls and go behind them. The campground is lovely, most sites are spacious. The pull throughs are not. Despite the heat, the pool doesn't open until memorial day. You can walk to Jack's for a fast food meal.
  • My husband and I stayed in Noccalula Falls Campground for 3 nights in Dec 2016. We absolutely loved it! The campsites are concrete, nice and level, and it's part of a lovely park. There's several walking trails right beside the campground which we enjoyed. We visited while the Christmas in The Falls event was going on and it was awesome! It doesn't matter how old you are, you'll love this event. They have a great little train ride through the park which is all lit up with Christmas lights that dance to the music. You can then walk through the park and see everything up close. Absolutely beautiful! It goes on and on! I would encourage everyone to attend this event during the Christmas season. We highly recommend this wonderful campground! There is also a restaurant right in the park area that serves great shakes! Oh yea!
  • It's clean, affordable, awesome family fun!! Ride the train to first stop your at the petting, when done get bk on train see the village then the falls. Next stop is the play park and Jack's, if you keep on train you go BK to starting station. You'll probably spend all day so pack a picnic 😀
  • Great view from the top of the falls and a super easy stroll from the parking lot. There is a nearby trail to the bottom of the falls. Medium difficulty. Wear good shoes with good grip as there are lots of rocks, roots, and uneven ground.
