Took a nice walk around the lake with my family. There is something for everyone at this park. Kayaks, paddle boats, ect. It was a hot day but not too bad on the trails under the trees.

We planned a stop on our road trip through TN and I'm so glad we did! The waterfalls are beautiful and we followed the trail down to the bottom with our 5 and 7 year olds. We were all amazed!
