Fall Creek Falls State Park Campground Professional Review and Guide
"It is only fitting that Fall Creek Falls— considered by many to be not only Tennessee’s best state park, but one of the finest in the Southeast—would have some of the best walk-in tent campsites around.
This 20,000-acre preserve is more widely known for its natural features: verdant old-growth forests, rock outcroppings, and sandstone bluffs overlooking steep gorges, and of course clear streams that fall to circular pools that give this park atop the Cumberland Plateau its name. Within this park are activities galore—if you can’t do it here, you probably can’t do it anywhere."
--Johnny Molloy, Best Tent Camping: Tennessee (Menasha Ridge Press).
A friend and I hiked the Upper Overnight Loop. It is 13 miles of boring trail. The only wildlife on the trail were yellow jackets, ticks, and a copperhead. It was a monotonous view of trees and underbrush. I would recomend trying the Lower Loop if you go.
