Welcome to the Fall Creek Falls Guide

Stretching over 25,000 acres of pristine landscape, Falls Creek Falls State Park is located in Pikeville, Tennessee.  Thanks to a philosophy of intelligent conservation coupled with education, Tennessee’s largest state park is a testament to natural beauty harnessed to provide tourist and resort attraction while maintaining area's natural beauty.  Lovers of the great outdoors will find top class recreational facilities of an 18 hole golf course, 50 miles of trails, both hiking, biking and a lake are set in a breathtaking scenic and accessible wilderness.

When you visit you’ll be overwhelmed by the beauty of the park’s geography with its craggy plateaus, rugged gorges, bubbling streams and impressive waterfalls like the eponymous Fall Creek Falls which cascade 256 feet into a glassy plunge pool. For some of the best views head for the rocky outcrops, for example, Millikan’s Outlook provides a beautiful panorama across Cane Creek. Falls Creek Falls Park revels in topographical diversity and as well as enjoying the cascades and gorges, the second largest cave chamber in the USA, Rumbling Falls Cave, is found here. Unfortunately, Rumbling Falls and other caves are currently closed to combat the spread of a disease threatening the US Bat population.

If you are a nature lover, you’ll be amazed at the lush vegetation of Falls Creek Falls State Park. On the plateau and parkland, the swathes of hardwood forest are mainly oak and hickory and in the protected gorges, tulip poplar and hemlock prosper. All throughout the park there are mountain laurel and thriving clumps of rhododendron.

For those who enjoy nature-based activities, Falls Creek Falls Park offers a multitude of choices; there’s swimming in an Olympic sized pool, horse riding, hiking, boating and mountain biking. Fishing on the 345 acre Falls Creek Fall Lake requires a permit and offers a catch of channel catfish, bream and large mouth bass. The Betty Dunn Nature Center is an excellent interpretive experience of the park’s geology, flora and fauna and cultural history.

Falls Creek Falls Park has plenty of organized activities and special theme days and is perfect for an energetic or relaxed getaway or a corporate event with quality facilities in a breathtaking setting.
