“a 20,000 acre paradise”

A paradise of more than 20,000 acres sprawled across the eastern top of the rugged Cumberland Plateau, Fall Creek Falls State Park is one of the most scenic and spectacular outdoor recreation areas in America. Laced with cascades, gorges, waterfalls, streams and lush stands of virgin hardwood timber, the park beckons those who enjoy nature at her finest. While Fall Creek Falls, at 256 feet, is the highest waterfall in the eastern United States, other waterfalls in the park are Piney, Cane Creek Falls and Cane Creek Cascades. 

The oak and hickory forest that covers most of the park gives way to tulip poplar and hemlock forest in the gorges. The plants and animals of the moist, protected gorges are not unlike the species found in southern Canada. Mountain laurel and rhododendron are abundant throughout the park, as are other plants and animals.

With its many amenities, including a Park Inn with 145 guest rooms and 5000 square feet of meeting and banquet space, 30 cabins and villas, 228 campsites, 2 group camps, a challenging 18-hole golf course and a gorgeous panoramic natural setting, it is little wonder that Southern Living magazine readers voted Fall Creek Falls the best state park in the Southeastern United States.

Fantastic hiking for waterfall lovers in TN. Cane Creek Falls is the standout to me, beyond Piney or Fall Creek Falls. Definitely do the cable trail to the base of Cane Creek, but be warned - it is VERY steep and intense!

There are actually lots of waterfalls here, including the utterly massive Fall Creek Falls. You can do a lot of swimming here, so bring a towel, a bathing suit, and water shoes. The hike down was really steep, but doable for me, and I'm a total couch potato.

Falls Creek Falls holds a special place in my heart, being my family has been going here for our family reunions for over 30 years. It's got tons to do, like swimming, hiking, fishing, golfing and just general natural bliss. If you visit I highly suggest going to the Cascade Falls, it's the best for swimming and general recreation, and there's a cool rope bridge that crosses over!

One of our favorites. Nice golf course in the park. Excellent campgrounds and lodge with restaurant. Close to Chattanooga and the tourist attractions there, including a wonderful aquarium. Short drive de to Burgess Falls and Rock Island State Parks, which both have magnificent waterfalls. The model railroader's display in nearby Cookeville is well worth a stop. Free, but worth a donation.
