The hike down to the base of the falls is pretty steep- but it's worth it! Plus swimming is a great way to take a break and you can dry off on the hike back up.

I suggest going to the Cascade Falls for a swim, they have tons of little jumps and a slide or two (rock slide that is)... it's just upstream and an easy hike from the nature center/parking lot (with stairs and only one tricky part towards the bottom) you can also hike to the top of Falls Creek Falls from the Cascades.

Stayed 2 nights with some friends. Easy to get into the campground, but our site was on a steep hill and not great for children, despite being close to the "playground" (i.e. 2 swings). This was our fault in booking, since it might have been nice for a single tent camper. None of the sites in our loop was particularly good for a travel trailer, and even a pop-up would have been pretty tight on most of them. The fire pits and tables weren't convenient to the site either. The site was right next to the trailhead to the falls, however, which was very convenient.

The campground bathhouse was in major need of upgrades - the floor was constantly flooded with water and was pretty dirty. I peeked in the men's room and it was considerably nicer than the women's. The area was quiet and the large courtyard had an unobstructed view of the stars at night.

The Nature Center also needed some major attention. Although it had some good information, it hadn't been cleaned or cared for in what seemed like 20 years. The walk to the falls was easy for kids, and we did the offshoots to the scenic overlooks (which were very high anxiety with the kiddos, but beautiful). The best hike was to Piney Falls, which we drove over to on our way out. We did the overlook first, and then took the suspension bridge down to the creek. If you walk down the shallow creek about 1/4 mile, you're at the top of the falls, which is pretty amazing. The kids loved splashing in the creek and trying to catch minnows.

We stayed 1 night in campground C. The site is at an incline, but we were able to get the Van level enough to sleep in. Even without being level, it is the best site in the loop. Very quiet and large spot. Bathrooms do need some work and were not that clean. Seems many of the facilities need some work, but enjoyed the hike and seeing the waterfalls.

I believe we got a senior rate here, Sunday/Monday stay. First night there were 5 campers spread out in Campsite A, we were allowed to choose any site so we picked a handicapped site and called it in to the office for approval. The advantage was that most of the site had access that was asphalted or paved and it was scheduled to rain our first night. Night 2 we were alone in the campground and were told they spread the other campers one to each of 4 campgrounds. So kudos to the staff for enhancing everyone's privacy.

We took the time to visit Fall Creek Falls and Piney Falls, with FCF being really beautiful on an overcast and foggy day. FCF is the tallest waterfall east of the Rockies, significantly taller than Niagra, but no where near as broad. A short hike got us down to the suspension bridge at Piney Falls and, though it is slightly urged, would be OK for children with an adult. Campground A had a very nice bathroom facility with 2 large L- shaped showers to easily accomodate wheelchairs and still provide privacy. There is a large grassy knoll in the center of Campground A with a huge newish play structure in great shape and a sand volleyball court. There's plenty do do at this park in season including zip line, kayaking, Olympic sized swimming pool, lakefront beach swimming area, nature center and on and on...something for everyone including hikes of all duration.

The staff came to our rescue pronto twice as we had some tow dolly issues and they could not have been kinder and more helpful, packing the needed tools on their trucks and lending experienced hands. Our hats off to the office staff and the men who helped us. Awesome folks!

The only negative we could see in Campground A was that some of the pull-thru sites, like ours, had a pull in site in a V pattern right next to it. In our case this meant if someone was in site 10, he would have to make sure he was pulled back all the way or would block entry to site 11. Conversely, we had to back up to dump at the sewer on our site and I noticed we blocked the entry to site 10 when we did it. Just be aware. Our site had full hook ups so quite nice.

When drivin up to the park make sure you stay on Route 111 and don't make the mistake we did following Google maps up 284 to 30 as it's a scary nightmare in a bigger rig, and vey slow. Exiting the park is through Old TN 111/284/ and was a pice of cake drive. The route we took up reminded me of driving into Mesa Verde Nat'l Park, a drive that definitely took a year or two off my life.

Upon entering the state park, you are going to be very impressed. Beautiful drive and scenery up in the mountains of TN. When you pull into the campground, you will be disappointed. We stayed in loop C, and every site was not level to the extreme, fire pits were full of trash, and the BBQ pits had not been cleaned. We were part of a group of 4 RVers, and every site was terrible. People had their RV's up on tree stumps under their stabilizing jacks to try and get level. I saw a Class A that looked like it was in the shop to swap out the motor. Drove through the other loops, pretty much all the same but C was by far the worst. Long story short, the park is beautiful - waterfalls, hiking trails, pools, and be sure to hit the ropes course - but the RV/Camping spots are AWFUL.

I highly recommend Loop A. You have to be careful with all of the loops for sites that are not level and have trees blocking your awning deployment. In my blog post I will be putting in I do give a list of sites that I recommend. Again, I would stay in loop A. The others were sub par when I drove through. Since multiple other reviews here were about C. I will say that loop C seemed to be mostly tent spots and was very crammed on top of each other. I would not recommend staying in Loop C at all.

Last weekend in August 2018. Great park, been going here since the 60's. My family (different branches) owned the park until the 1930's, my father was the last one born in the park and their house stood where Bath House C stands today. If you go under the swinging bridge behind the nature center you will see a plaque about my Great, Great Grandfathers Mill.

This is the first time I have ever camped there and it will not be my last. Sites are of varying sizes, so pick well. Park was quite packed and my only less than perfect score was do to sound. You could hear kids in the creek well behind us until way in the night.

Lots of GREAT hiking in the area!

The park itself is large and I believe there are 5 camping loops. We stayed in loop A. Most sites are not very level and some of them are very close to each other. We were there in the beginning of March and were amazed at the amount of people there. Did not look at the restrooms/bathhouse so I can not say how they were. The drive into the park is great but once in the park it is pretty hilly. We would stay here again.
