Very pleasant check in. Sites are old and some are very very close. Our pull thru had no table, no grass and very narrow. Sitting outside there was a definite sewer smell every 10 minutes or so. Price is cheap for full hookups but little to offer except nice pool. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground was very nice. They had a lot of walking trails by the creek. The park way also. Staff was very helpful getting me parked at night. Good for kids. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Love this park! We had a muddy spot after rain, but otherwise it is a great place to come. I could spend weeks here. Noccalula Falls is a great place to see nature and hike. Lots of Alabama campers come here and a very friendly. Good gravel roads, we were on a long concrete pad, easy hookup including elec, water, sewer. Some of the sites were gravel, but in good shape. Want to return! We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Noccalula Falls Campground is reasonably priced, easy to get to, and clean. Almost all of the sites are very small with little room between sites. Some awnings were touching the campers next door to them. Almost all the sites are very uneven. It's hard to distinguish where your site ends and the next one begins. There is not a picnic table or fire ring at each site. Our neighbors told us that a family from another site took the brand new picnic table from our site before we arrived. Luckily, the family we camped with were able to keep their table. We're not sure which site the fire ring went to, but our friends had the site it may have belonged to, so it didn't matter. We arrived late after hours. When I went to the office to pay in the morning, the lady tried to charge me for all 3 nights, even though there was paperwork with the receipt of my deposit. I made the reservation for both families; she had no clue how to tell if they'd paid or if I needed to pay for theirs while I was there. When I asked about buying fire wood, she said they didn't have any. We stopped by the office that afternoon after our hike to ask if they had got any in. She said they did not have any firewood. We had to drive into town and find somewhere open who sold wood. As we drove back into the campground, we saw a huge pile of firewood behind the building. The pool seems too small for the number of sites. It looked clean, but was too crowded to go in. We took the map and marked the few sites that are spacious enough and have a relatively flat area for setting up chairs and cooking. I would only camp here again if we are guaranteed one of those sites. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We actually stayed most of Nov, all of Dec and all of Jan and 1 week of Feb- working in area. Campground Park was kept clean and had multiple extra extra large waste cans available and emptied 2-3 times per week. Some site can accommodate large campers and HDTs. Water falls were beautiful especially after a storm. The Park area across the river ravine was decorated for christmas and was quite enjoyable. There is a moderately stocked 'library'/ 'book exchange'. Laundry area has 2 washers and 2 dryers (only 1 drier was working). Packages were accepted but some delay since everything went to the main park office building and then was picked up but campground office staff (I dont think they were advised of deliveries and checked when customers inquired.) Staff friendly. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Just a short drive for all sorts of shopping. Some small museums. Walking the various mapped out routes/paths provided fresh air/exercise/nature. About an hour from larger communities but several smaller towns surrounded area. Good variety and great food choices available.

The staff were great, but didn't seem to know the best approach to the site we were assigned. We had to go back around so that we could approach the site from the opposite direction. Tight for big rig. The city-owned campground was in the city park. The falls was spectacular as it had recently opened. The park was decorated for Christmas and they did a good job. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Entrance area is snug fitting but once in the park spacious roads. Excellent mapping in that sites are listed for long or short vehicles. Friendly staff, we actually came in a back way and staff were able and willing to give us appropriate directions. Very nature oriented with a wonderful falls /river running along side, Good walking paths/ roads. Kept clean, multiple waste containers, grounds checked daily by maintenance. Secured area and monitored at night. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is simply beautiful! Sure, check in was a little tight, but once inside the campground it's pure bliss. The staff were friendly and helpful and our fellow campers were friendly as well. The roads were adequate for our 35' motorhome and the concrete pads are level and the sites nicely spaced. There was a nice playground for the kids too. All the hookups worked fine and the park was very clean and well maintained. I wish I could give it 6 stars for value.

Nearby is the city park and it too is a great value. It's an easy walk to the park and a must see. You'll be pleasantly surprised at all there is to see and do there, from a train to pioneer homes to the waterfall to a petting / wildlife zoo. Together the RV park and city park make for a memorable getaway, especially for us frugal campers. We'll definitely be back! We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a city owned RV park. We were here for a rally. The office people were very accommodating and handled check-in quickly. The check-in area has room for only 2 RVs at a time. The A & B lots had full hookups. Be sure to keep your dump valves closed as it is a city sewer and the sewer gases do come up. Sites had level concrete pads. It was a little hard to locate our site as the lot numbers were small little arrows with the lot number attached to a tree. A few of the lots had trees on both sides near the street and may have been a little harder to back in. The only real issue for many is the water hookup. Some were the above ground water outlet common to most campgrounds that was heat tape wrapped but some had two spigots in a below ground level meter vault that was shared by two sites and was at the rear of the lot. My 25' hose was just enough for hookup but some may need more length depending on where your city water inlet is located. Fast food and recreation is close by. Downtown is about 1/2 mile down the hill. One of the few locations in the US with black squirrels. There was nice facilities for the rally, a nice pavilion and also an enclosed dining hall. I might add there are a number of the lots were pretty close together but still enough room to extend an awning. It may be a bit of a problem also if you encounter rain as the area next to the parking pad is bare dirt and be a little muddy when wet. A little stone or sand cover would be a help. In all, the price is very good, close to shopping if needed and the park personnel are very nice. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Park is difficult to get into with a Big Rig. Had to have people move vehicles in order to get out. Only one way in and you block traffic in a big unit while paying. The falls was non existent, it was a trickle. Said they were in a drought, but the rivers were all full around them. Other than this the park is nice, with full hook ups. The staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Signage for this campgound needs to be improved. The large signs for Noccalula Falls park are misleading. The campground is 1/2 mile past the park but the signs are too small to read from a distance. The interior roads are narrow with lots of trees. The wife had to get out twice to move garbage cans so we could get through. If an RV is parked at the office for check in, you have to sit and wait for them to move so you can get back to your site. Our pull through had not been cleaned up after the previous campers - trash and cigarette butts. For shorter RVs, trailers, tents, etc. this is probably a nice park but we wouldn't return. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
