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.

Tips for other Campers:

Reasonable travel to the necessary stores. Quaint but modern at the same time type of community.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Bit of a drive for dining.

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.

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.

hiking, view the falls

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.

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.
