“experience one of the wildest areas in Tennessee”

Experience and enjoy one of the most scenic, wildest areas in Tennessee with a visit to the Foster Falls Recreation Area. Operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority and located near Tracy City, Tennessee, this recreation area provides a safe, and beautiful base for exploring the south end of the Cumberland Plateau. Foster Falls is a spectacular 60-foot waterfall plunging into a deep pool in the center of the 178-acre TVA Small Wild Area. Mountain laurel, azaleas, and hemlocks growing above the falls, along the sandstone overlook, and in the gorge below add to the beauty of this area. An easy hike will take you to the top of the falls. From there a trail will take you over the river on a suspension bridge to the base of the falls for a delightful view and experience. Situated on a level, wooded tract near Foster Falls, the Campground has an on-site manager (whoc an be contacted at 423-942-5759), 26 campsites, including a handicapped-accessible site; restrooms with heated showers and flush toilets, picnic tables and grills, and a group pavilion available by reservation, toll-free number (866) 494-7186.

The track here is great and really worth exploring! In the first five miles of your adventure, you will encounter a unbelievably wonderful gorge that is full of beautiful and breathtaking waterfalls and swimming holes! Also, be sure to wear the suitable clothing, some parts are also dangerous but still, its worth visiting!

Awesome hike! There are many treasures throughout this area, the hike down to the Bottom is steep and Rocky but worth it when you get to the lagoon

This place is great! A local recommended it to us for the climbing. Little did we know that the scenery would be spectacular. Plus a great swimming hole!
