This is one of the nicest places we have visited - and the $21 per night is a bargain. First time we have been at a public park that has concrete pads (all sites), cable TV, good Wi-Fi and sewer hook-ups. If you like hiking - there are several miles of trails with different degrees of difficulty. The waterfall and park area are very well maintained. The City of Gadsen has clearly spent time and money making this an excellent family vacation park. The only caution - the water pressure is really strong. If your RV doesn't have a pressure regulator, you may want to consider adding one. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't forget to visit the water falls and take the train ride.

Our site, a long pull through concrete pad was like most sites here, under trees. The park's cable supplied 60 channels, so our satellite dish was not missed. The wifi was weak, but workable for email. The adjoining city park charges $4.00+ to view their gardens and petting zoo. We arrived too late to be tempted or to walk along the creek trail. The falls itself is better than most RV park scenery! We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall a good city owned park. Some sites are close together. We stayed on site 37. Next site over was about 10 feet. Not a problem as we're out and about during the day. Seems to be good security. Park staff are friendly and helpful. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Good overnight with very tight spots. Grounds were nice. Lots of lights thru out the park. Not far off interstate. We would stay again for overnight if in area. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a hidden gem - we had a great site - close to the bathroom and the park was sparsely filled. It's close to a hiking area and near the falls and park area. We also played golf at a nearby course and found getting around Gadsden very easy. We would definitely stay here but only in the off season as I'm sure it fills up in the peak periods.

The overall park atmosphere is great. The walking trails through the woods are about 6 feet wide and completely graveled to make the up and down trek much easier. There are wooden bridges along the way as well as benches for resting. Each tenth of a mile is marked so you know how far you have gone. There are also many more smaller side trails for more hiking and biking. The Falls are great and for the more serious adventurer you can hike to the bottom and behind the falls either from the campground(not the easiest) or from the next door park(zoo). The park has a petting animal area and a small train and a few other activities. The showers were very clean. The only negative I had was I thought the overall park was geared for smaller trailers. We camped in a 42 ft RV. Almost all electrical and sewer are located at the very back of the sites. The roads are a bit narrow, but navigable if going very slowly. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The previous review of this city-run, tree-filled campground was spot-on. I would only add that the sites were laid out in a strange way - some had good spacing between them and others were very close together. Our site (#A19) was concrete and fairly level, as were most of the others we viewed. Each site had a strong table and "homemade" rock fire pit. The laundry room consisted of 2 washers and 2 dryers. Bathrooms and showers were nice and clean, and the showers had hooks and chairs to set toiletries on during use. The signal to our amplified Verizon MiFi unit and phones was excellent, we did not try the campground WiFi. There was some noise from the park next door, but it was not bad. We enjoyed the Falls and walked the trail often. The nearby Walmart Supercenter and several other stores and services were easily accessible, as were several good restaurants. We stayed for a week, and our daily rate was based on their weekly rate. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

What a neat place. Came across this place by accident, and what a find. Run by the city in a beautiful setting near a waterfall that has a lot of history around it. Has a beautiful walking trail and level spacious sites. We are planning on staying there for the month of December on our way south. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is nice. We have a very large tow vehicle and we were able to navigate through the roads. We had a pull through site. It was on a grade and it took some effort to level the trailer. Most of the other sites appeared to be more level. The falls are interesting. There is a hiking trail, but we only followed it a short ways due to time constraints. The staff is very friendly. We were here only one night. The utilities worked as expected. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park but, rough roads at entrance and throughout the park, long runs for water hose (over 25'), and narrow sites. Pretty area. Waterfalls in the park. Stayed 1 week. Would stay again if in the area. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

I have camped here several times and I love this place. Lots of places to eat and things to do. Beautiful waterfall and park. Sites are large and easy to get in/out. Price is GS discount. Utilities are good but water may be on the wrong side and require 2 hoses. 20/30/50 amp service. Staff is very friendly. Easy to get to from I-59 exit 188. Site was plenty long enough to stay hooked up. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice setting. Plenty of shade. Some sites are tight backing in to in a large camper. Pretty level pads. Ninety foot waterfall, animals, train, walking and biking trails. Great for kids and adults. I have stayed here several times. Close to I-59. Highly recommended for just passing thru or vacations. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our second time staying in this excellent city-owned campground. The worst thing about it is that it is hard to find. It has the usual amenities but is not fancy. The grounds are lovely and there is a huge waterfall and a large creek to admire. There is a fabulous one and a half mile long gravel trail along the creek that begins in the campground and then runs along the creek. The trail is used by walkers, joggers, and bikes. Usual hook-ups, not always in the perfect location but good enough. Lots of trees. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground consists of a winding paved/gravel road through a thinly forested area with concrete site pads. The campground appears a bit older, with manu cracks, heaves and patches in the pavement and dirt eroded from around some of the pads. However, it is no problam at 5 mph with a 39' fifth wheel. The campground entrance is a bit odd, with a single lane road in and a single lane road out that meets in a short single lane at the entrance, which means you need to alternate coming in and out. This is OK, except that there is space for only one rig to park just past the office. If you stop too soon, or if there is more than one rig, noone is getting into the campground, even if they are just a car. If there were more than 3 rigs lined up, noone would be getting out, either. There is a very well maintained 2 mile trail along the creek and there is an unmarked path behind site 34 which leads down to the falls at the campground entrance. This path actually allows you to walk behind the falls, which is kind of neat. If you just want to see the falls from the top, you can follow the path adjacent to the campground entrance, across the footbridge to where the statue of Noccalula is located. We needed one board for levelling. Great value at $20 for full hookups and even better with our 10% Good Sams discount. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an awesome find. A beautiful setting in a real park! Staff are very friendly. Big pool. We received directions to everything. Level, large sites. Huge waterfall offered great views. Fine dining nearby. Washrooms were dated and ok. Security gate was appreciated. Would like to have stayed longer. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Tent.
