The park's namesake waterfall plunges from a height of 78 m (256 ft), creating a large pool of crystalline water surrounded by steep rocks covered in dense vegetation. The park also contains several caves, including one with the second-largest cavern chamber in the U.S. Open year-round, the site houses a restaurant, inn, 18-hole golf course, swimming pool, and three large campgrounds.

  • Very nice state park. We camped there and I love the size of the site's. There are plenty to choose from too! Wildlife everywhere. Beautiful waterfalls, fun trails. The lookout offered great views, we watched the sun start to set at buzzards roost, wish we could have seen the whole thing but they lock the gate at 6pm. Would definitely recommend! Would definitely visit again! Visited middle of August.
  • pretty OK place. campsites are a wee bit small. facilities are good+. area is awesome. reasonably easy to get to. staff is helpful and friendly. worthy of a return trip. VZW 4G is good enough to review Fall Creek Falls right from our campsite also coverage is ok to use phone as a hiking guide.
  • Good food and friendly restaurant staff. We love the park for pleasant walks and pretty drives in all seasons...it's lovely in the winter too. Great water quality. We've rented cabins and boats in the past and have had great times, making this our favorite TN state park! They sell beautiful split oak baskets in the gift shop made by regional craftspeople.
  • This is a great park that a person can spend a day or a week. Hiking trail, biking trails, boat rentals, fishing, a golf course, and even car tails are at this amazing park. The park offers tent sites and RV sites for those who would like to camp. The park has a inn on the site that is great for spending the night in if you don't want to camp. The Inn also has a in house restaurant that serves "Southern style" foods, the food ok, not the best but not the worst. The service is great and very friendly staff. Finally if you are in the in September when the Park host a 3 day Bluegrass festival, go to it. Lot of great music spread out in the park area. Lots of people but not overly crowded due to multiple stages and just a large site for the event.
  • Great park. We bring the dogs and get a cabin and hike, boat, fish, and generally relax. Reasonably nice buffet at the lodge, and a really good camp store and outfitter in the middle of the park. Great day hikes, scenic views, falls, with good facilities.
