  • We had a group of adults and children and we all jumped from various cliffs. Water is cold but clear and beautiful. 
  • The Sinks were a highlight of our family trip to the Gatlinburg area. Jumping from the cliffs was exhilarating and fun for the whole family. Probably not for every family. Need to be strong swimmers. ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Really great spot to swim. My daughter and I the rock too. Highly recommended for a cheap afternoon trip.
  • 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.
  • One of my favorite spots anywhere. I can spend all day swimming here. Skip the Wye.
