“on the Toccoa Falls Campus”
The Toccoa Falls waterfall, with a vertical drop of 186 feet (57 m), is located on the campus of Toccoa Falls College in Stephens County, Georgia. Toccoa is the Cherokee word for beautiful. Some claim that Toccoa Falls is the tallest free-falling waterfall in the Eastern United States, however, the waterfall does not hold that title. Crabtree Falls in Virginia (cascading 1,000 feet (300 m), including one 400-foot (120 m) drop), Fall Creek Falls in Tennessee (256 foot sheer drop) and Taughannock Falls in New York (215 foot sheer drop) are all taller. In addition, one other Georgia waterfall includes a drop that is taller: Cascade Falls includes a 262-foot (80 m) drop.
I was a bit confused at first when I was told that the falls were on a college campus... You have to access it through the bookstore.... it's actually a pretty interesting story behind the falls and tragic as well. But they are very beautiful, very picturesque!
$2 per person admission to see the falls, but worth it. They keep it very clean and we got some great photos!
Worth the trip. Military/veteran discount. Very inexpensive !
We loved this! The water is so clean and beautiful. It is well maintained has a sad story that integrates some history into the trip. One of the best waterfalls to take pictures that I have ever been to.
My teenage girl and her friend wish they could go to this college now. It is a beautiful little campus. Any student should be proud.
Beautiful! Hidden treasure.
Beautiful! Well worth it.
