  • Came here during Christmas with a group for the lights and to ride the train, very pretty. Will return again. There is a petting zoo and educational area during the winter lights.  more »
  • This park has a little bit of it all... From beautiful waterfall to the train ride to the petting zoo... Lots of historical stories.  more »
  • I live here close to the Falls. It is named for an Indian girl named Noccalula that was in love with a boy from another tribe. Their fathers would not let them get married so they jumped into the wate...  more »

  • 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.
  • This was an excellent stop on the way home. It was very humid when we went and the trail was wet from the rain. The fall itself was muddy. The petting zoo and feeding area was fun. The trail starts out steep and levels off but gets slippery and rocky as you progress towards the fall. I was disappointed that the mini golf didn't open until 2pm. Also the children got a little muddy from the rocks and rain. It was fun and will definitely return.
  • 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!
  • One of our favorite places to camp. It's a short ride up the road. The sites are well maintained. They are a little narrow, but spacious in back for socializing. They are also patrolled regularly. Overall, great value for the money.
