Great Tennessee State Park to bring the whole family to tent camp or do the RV thing. You still get the modern luxuries such as hot showers and flush toilets, yet feel like you are really in the wilderness roughing it. The trails are laid out pretty nice, but you still have the ability to fall off a cliff if not paying attention. Nothing like having a good chuckle over dinner reminiscing about the time you were dangling off a cliffs edge or were trying to adjust your aperture setting and broke a leg. Just good old-fashioned fun. Adventure the family can enjoy and let out a sigh of relief once you make it back home safely.
There is a nature center you can take a peek in. It was closed when I was there on a Saturday, due too a lunch break. So I can’t really give you much information on it. Looks like a gift shop and some info to educate the mind as I pressed my nose up against the padlocked door window. Right out back you have Cane Creek Falls and the swing bridge leading into an assortment of trails. Which eventually take you to Fall Creek Falls. Lots of do not enter signs and be careful warning signs.
Betty Dunn nature center
Cane Creek Falls is behind the nature center.
Caught one terrified wife pleading for her hubby to come off some precarious looking cliff overlooking a pretty good ten-second free fall in my estimate. I eventually spotted them meandering through the forest all smiles. That is what’s nice about the park, a real sense of adventure that you can’t get at the local fantasy park.
RV camp site still has trees that you can enjoy.
Seems Fall Creek Falls State Park offers a lot to do. The RV area still has plenty of trees, as does the tent area. If you really want to rough it you can tromp off into the wilderness and set up camp the traditional way. You won’t have to worry about leaving your car unattended, which is a rather sad state of affairs these days. I seem to hear a lot of stories about people returning to their vehicles these days and finding them vandalized. Plus, you can go to Sparta for a good meal, if that macaroni & cheese is getting old. So pack the vehicle and head out for some peace and quite at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee.
