There was very little water at the falls, but the Fall foliage was beautiful and the falls were still pretty at 250+ feet.

We go camping here every year and have always had a great experience. It’s a great place to camp,hike,fish,bike,or just spend the day. The camping spots have water ,electric and some have sewer hook up. There are nice shower bathroom facilities.

Fall Creek Falls is beautiful. We have gone here for years to picnic, hike, relax and view the falls. There are always different events going on. Nice views. You can hike to the bottom of the fall if you like.

Most of the trails are fairly easy. The exception being the one that goes down toward the base of the high falls, which may be a little rough for children. The park rangers & staff are more than helpful in recommending... More
