  • We spent just one night in the campground, but found it very quiet and comfortable. Check-in was quick and the clerk was friendly and helpful. The only disappointment that the falls were a mere trickl...  read more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful place to visit, some paths are rugged around and under falls. the rest are smooth and easy to walk. Petiting zoo and antique bulidings, train ride around the park.
  • Visit after a good rain. It really is a magnificent waterfall after it rained on Lookout Mountain. In late summer and with little rain the waterfall can be a bit disappointing The park centers around the falls, is relatively small, and in an urban setting. We were a little confused finding and following the trail on the North side of Black Creek that climbs down to Black Creek and eventually leads you behind the falls. Being behind the falls is an awesome experience.
  • This place should not have exotic caged animals for the pleasure of humans to enjoy. A 700 pound lion does not need to be caged in a 50x50 foot cage. Some of the animals have a 10 foot cage to circle back in fourth in. It's awful and extremely sad. Why does a beautiful white fox, a Linx, and exotic birds need to be caged? I'm sick to my stomach that I actually paid money to visit this place. All of these animals are miserable and should be released ASAP. I can't imagine the heat of summer on these animals. It seems as if they never leave their cage. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS PLACE. It is not right or humane. I will be contacting further agencies that can make a Change. I WILL NOT BE BACK
  • Excellent place to see some of the local history in Gadsden. Look for the monument at the head of the falls and follow along the trails for a journey back in time as you see the local culture preserved in this park.
