Like others, mixed feelings on this campground. The staff was very nice. The falls were beautiful. Gadsden itself has a lot of shops and restaurants. This campground, is older and the sites are very close together (think a KOA, but even closer). Bigger rigs could have a tough time getting into a few sites. If you have a good spotter, you'll make it in... but the tight spots and trees can make it very, very tough. They do not reserve the pull-through sites, we were able to grab one on a first come/first serve basis. Our pad actually shared a parking spot, with the camper next to us. They had to park in front of our 5th wheel; we parked in the back. On the weekend, this place is very hard to navigate. Roads are a bit rough. Most sites had picnic tables and fire pits. Price was right. Nice playground for kids and there is a small pool. I did not see a dog run. I would give this property, a score of 7.5 stars. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tree-shaded, secure (gated), FHU sites in a city park right in town with a very helpful staff, a picnic pavilion, a picturesque waterfall, and a paved trail along the river were the positives. Crumbling concrete RV pads; narrow, sloping, too-short sites; broken utility connections; and off-season closures of most of the many other park attractions were the negatives. Just a little better maintenance and some site repaving would make this one of the most attractive city-owned campgrounds in the South! We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is easy to access and is in a beautiful location adjacent to Noccalula Falls themselves. Our site is a back-in and has a concrete pad (yeah). The grounds are well maintained by city staff who are very friendly. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring good walking shoes and a walking cane if you're a bit unsteady with walking on gravel. Very nice laundry facility. $1.00 a load to wash. Same for drying. They do have a pool but it's October so that's null. They do have a children's playground.

This park is in a great location to explore Gadsden and surrounding areas. The price is right and the amenities good but there are too many sites that are jammed in together. In some, it's hard to tell which hookups belong to you. Thankfully the fire rings are just rocks so we were able to move ours to a better location. Yes, there's lots of trash bins but the whole park could use a good clean up and rearrangement. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Has it all! Easy access to Interstate, room for big rigs, full hook-up, playground/pool, adjacent to city park. Multiple hiking/exercise trails can be accessed directly from the park. Easy walks to moderate trails. Short walk to natural falls and gorge as well as museums and restaurants. All this and a great price. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Hike the gorge and go behind the waterfall. Eat at the Thai restaurant nearby. Take a compass if you hike the mountain trails north of the campground because there are very few trail markers.

We stayed 2 nights on site A36. They don't rent out #35 so we could use it to park our truck. We were in the back of the park, right near the trails. Nice shady spot with plenty room for our chairs. Site had a picnic table and fire ring. The park has wifi, but we couldn't pick it up. Too far from the source I suppose. We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back.

Campground has different types of sites and different prices, so visit the web site for fees for different types of sites, all discounts honored, etc. I spent just one night here but I did find the park clean and well kept. The employees were busy in the morning emptying trash, picking up any trash on the ground, etc. Very nice people. They have way too many tall pines and too many spaces close together, but I was told that they were doing "surveying" in preparation for changes. The park is very nice and a fun place to spend an afternoon, with lots of water flowing over the 90 ft waterfall due to the recent rains. I picked a 30 amp/water only site as I was there only one night, so I stayed right up front. Wi-Fi worked well. The park is gated and patrolled, so you have a feeling of being safe. Convenient as it is about 7 miles off of Interstate 59 and only two miles from US431. I was in my 24 ft Winnebago View without any toad, so it was easy in and out for me. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Thai restaurant across the street from the park that gets good Google ratings, and a Jacks hamburgers/chicken/breakfast (very nice too!) right in front of the park. There is also a Dollar General store less than a block up the street should you need something, along with a bank, ATM, gas station, and Subway, also another gas station right across from the campground entrance.

The falls are less than a five minute walk from the campground and are spectacular. The grounds are clean and wooded. The infrastructure is older but the pads are concrete which is good. This is part of a city park and there is a flat and wide gravel trail running next to the campground with the gorge beyond. Some of the sites are impossibly close to others, a slab was angled three feet from ours, BUT they do not seem to rent those, spacing folks out. In general, the spaces are close , but livable. Lots of trees and shade. Pleasant. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground was great, except the campsite itself. We had excellent wifi, nice clean facilities, ample trash receptacles, great walking and hiking trails, good cable hookups. The campsites are incredibly narrow and close together is my only real complaint. If they could fix that this place would be great! We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
