This park is wonderful for families with children. Lots of things for the kids to do. The grounds are beautiful and well taken care of. A great place for a family vacation. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

I read about this state park in Trailer Life Magazine, where it was rated quite highly, and I now see why. It's a great state park--clean, forested, with a large lake, boat rentals, a pool, trails, waterfalls and streams (that you can swim in), horseback riding, etc., etc. We spent two days and three nights here, and had a great time. We probably could have spent another day to see the few other things that we didn't get to see. As I mention below, if you don't have a car expect to do a lot of walking or biking.

I was a bit disappointed with the site for our motorhome, though. I have a 30 foot long Class A RV, and our site was too short for it. The site was very unlevel, and because our site was so short, the front of the RV was only a couple of feet from the road edge, pitched down beyond the leveling capability of our RV. Backing up much more than we did would have put us into the site of the trailer behind us. For an RV of our size, they should have recommended a different site, especially when I told them how large our RV was upon making the reservation.

If you're coming to this park in a motorhome but you don't have a car, expect to do a lot of walking or biking. It's a big park and if you don't have a mode of transportation, it's a lot of "huffing and puffing" on foot or by bike up and down the hilly roads around the campsites. We were in loop D in a motorhome with no car and pretty much had to walk everywhere. Everything you want (trail heads, nature center, pool, general store, docks, etc.) is at least a 15 minute walk, sometimes longer, along combinations of trails and roads that other cars are using. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

It's a beautiful drive entering from the north, but just be ready for some hilly, twisty, and narrow roads. Our RV is about 12 feet tall and we had no problem with vertical clearances (branches, wires).

My kids (10,6) and I tent camped here for one night and hiked the Fall Creek Falls trail the next day. We stayed in loop A near the open green space (+playground & a volleyball) which was great because there were a bunch of kids running around. The bathhouse was older but clean. Everyone adhered to quiet hours. We did not have a chance to use the pool or visit the gift shop. We will be back for a longer stay in the future. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Tent.

We camped at Fall Creek Falls for 4 nights. This was our first trip. Very shaded and well maintained. I have a Ford F350 dually long bed with a 39 foot 5th wheel. We camped in one of the loops in section B. It is manageable but you do have to be careful with trees and the tight loop with such a long rig. Great stay, very quiet and lots to do (hiking, fishing, boating, etc...). Really good general store on site with great ice cream and one of the best campground gift shops I have ever been in. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you travel I-40 to Cookville or Crossville getting to Fall Creek Falls SP, take Hwy 101 to get south rather than Hwy 127. Hwy 127 is EXTREMELY twisty with tight hairpin turns. Also pack what you need for your stay. No box stores nearby. Fall Creek Falls State Park is a terrific place to get away from the outside world. No TV. No Wi-Fi. Cell service is spotty. But there is so much to do right there. Chattanooga is an easy day trip to Ruby Falls, Inclined Railway, and/or Rock City to name a few great sites. Bring your bicycle to ride miles of paved roads. Great, friendly staff. A very special place. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

We give the campground itself a 6 while the park deserves a 9. There are 5 loops in the camping area and they vary in quality. Sites are close together in most areas with little privacy. Most of the sites are un-level and have front to back sloping. Avoid loop C where sites are very small and on top of one another. There are some nice tent sites (including park and walk in). Bathrooms are typical state facilities. The park is TN's largest and offers wonderful hiking opportunities. It has great creek swimming near the nature center as well as a pool. It is very scenic with multiple creeks and waterfalls. Park is heavily used. Reservations suggested in the summer. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We liked the campground overall but had a problem with our site (A15). It was going against the flow of the road and took us almost an hour to get in. We noticed that other big rigs had the same problem in section A. Section B looks a lot better for our 36' RV. CG was very busy but didn't feel like you were crammed in, lots of room. We will go back! We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful Campground! Some of the sites are difficult to get in to if you have a larger RV. Ours is 33ft. and took a few tries. Plenty to do in the park as it has abundant facilities. A store that has everything from food to camper supplies. Enter park using south entrance; much easier for RV's. Don't use TN30 if coming from I 40. That takes you to the North entrance. Keep going on 111 to get to the South entrance. Deer are all over the campground and aren't shy. Lots to do with hiking, tennis, pools, biking, and the scenery in the park is beautiful. Reminds us of the Smokies. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Enjoyed our stay. Rated higher than likely should have due to natural beauty of area. Staff present was friendly and helpful which was improvement over last visit few years ago. Area relatively clean but facilities still need some attention/maint. Enjoyed the falls and trails/swimming holes. Campground areas fairly well maintained, did have good cell service and even internet thru Verizon but no TV reception (which is good thing). Well stocked store on site, plenty of activities. Even used laundry which was very reasonably priced. Will go back ! We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

After camping, for the first time at FALL CREEK FALLS, I have come away with a few thoughts. There is a lot to see and do around this state park. On your first visit you can stay busy with short or long hikes, lots of sight seeing. It really is a beautiful park. I heard good reviews on the restaurant at Fall Creek Falls, especially the dinner buffets. In my opinion it's just OK. They no longer offer crab legs on the buffet every Friday. When I was there they had prime rib (I've had better), fish, shrimp, frog legs, chicken, ribs (very tough) etc etc on the buffet. I didn't think it was great, and at $18.95, not sure I would order it again. The campgrounds are very woodsy (I like that).. but several sites are close together. Tight turns, small roads and campers crammed up against each other. Some are paved sites, most gravel or dirt. I drove through all the campgrounds, in the park, and found several great sites. So the key here is to visit the park and pick out the sites you like best before you reserve. My site, D190, was not one I would camp in again. Not sure I will return to FALL CREEK FALLS very soon. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is the nicest state park we've ever been in. This is a fantastic park with lots to do and see. We are definitely returning to this park. Facilities, sights, rangers, etc. All get a 10. If you just have to have TV, Wi-Fi, and cell phones, you may not agree because that's not available. This is a state park with plenty of more interesting things to do than watch a TV, talk on a phone, or play video games. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Truck Camper.

Overall, the park was enjoyable. The trails were in good shape and like the namesake of the park, there are many waterfalls. Other notable features of the park are an Inn and golf course. The Inn is a bit dated, but it has a restaurant buffet several other campers were favorably recommending. Having eaten at other State Park restaurants, I was a bit skeptical. To my surprise and enjoyment the buffet was quite good and reasonably priced at $9.95. I also enjoyed the golf course, but there were many leaves on the course due to the time of year. Still, I think the course could have been a little bit better maintained. I lost a few balls in the middle of the fairway due to the excessive leaves. We did not use the restrooms or shower house, but they looked in good order. Be careful when reserving on line. Our site said it was level, but it was definitely not. We were able to level out, so no big deal. We camped here in a 42 ft 5th wheel. In general, the park would have rated higher if more effort was given to improving the overall appearance of the park. With that being said, we would definitely camp here again. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is located within a very nice state park with waterfalls, hiking trails, restaurant, inn & other amenities within a short drive. We ate at the restaurant once. Food was served buffet-style & it was just OK. I would not eat there again. We stayed in loop B, which is shaded and hilly. Most sites required leveling blocks. The bath house is very dated (broken tiles, etc.) but well-equipped. The shower stalls are huge (about 3'x6') with plenty of hot water & a roomy dressing area. The bath house was cleaned daily. It was easy to get lost walking around the loop, as there are small loops within loop B. We saw numerous deer walking through the campground. They did not approach us but were clearly not afraid. There were also skunk & raccoon sightings. I would have rated the campground higher if the sites were more level & the bath house was updated. All things considered, this is a fun place to visit & I would go there again. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park was beautiful and well maintained as was the campground. Large roomy campsites. We stayed in B-143 which we reserved online thinking it was level (according to the website), but it was slanted enough that the front of the travel trailer tongue was all the way on the ground. We had water, electric, and sewer. No cable, internet, or Wi-Fi and very limited 3G on our AT&T phone. Another person had Verizon service and had no coverage at all. There is plenty to do within the park having beautiful waterfalls, hiking trails, biking trails and a pool. There is a camp store, a laundry facility, and a snack bar, as well as a nice restaurant that has a fabulous breakfast and lunch buffet. They also have a dinner buffet, but we didn't eat there for dinner. I would have given this campground a 10 if it had better cell phone coverage for emergency contacts. Be sure to fill up your gas tank before you get there because this park is 20 miles from the nearest town and you will be doing plenty of driving to see everything the park has to offer, and that's in addition to the hiking trails. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.
