  • I love the Sinks but it simply amazes me at the number of people recommending you swim and/or jump of the rocks here. There are signs every where at the Sinks saying "NO SWIMMING" and more people have...  more »
  • A great stop on the way to Cades Cove! The sounds of the water are so theraputic and the hiking trails are gorgeous! We've seen kids swimming and jumping, but never brave enough to try ourselves! Mayb...  more »
  • We stumbled here by accident while trying to find a spot to turn around to get back to Laurel Falls. Apparently people like to jump off the rocks and into the water below even though there are plenty ...  more »

  • Amazing! I have a bone disease that doesn't allow me to walk on gravel or rocky roads. This was perfect! Cement floor all the way to the viewing area and a bit more. I will be returning with my family every time we're here.
  • Best described as nature's waterpark. When in Gatlinburg, must make a stop here, especially for the kids. Very close to the road so don't need to hike a long way to get to it. If you are brave enough, you can dive into the water off the big rock formations.
  • Interesting spot, decent waterfall which is viewed easily not far from the parking lot. If your interest is in finding glamorous waterfalls - this one will not offer too much for you.
  • Great swimming hole with a waterfall. Some people even jump from the guardrail into the water,but this isn't recommended because of the many rocks hidden below the waterline.
  • Awesome place for swimming. Definitely worth stopping. Sinks was the best part in my whole trip there.
