Fall Creek Falls State Park

Fall Creek Falls

Fall Creek Falls State Park is one of Tennessee’s largest and most visited state parks. The park encompasses more than 29,800 acres sprawled across the eastern top of the rugged Cumberland Plateau. Laced with cascades, gorges, waterfalls, streams and lush stands of virgin hardwood timber, the park beckons those who enjoy nature at her finest. Fall Creek Falls, at 256 feet, is one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern United States. Other waterfalls within the park include Piney Falls, Cane Creek Falls, and Cane Creek Cascades.  Best for sight-seeing.

Great Falls is a 30-foot horseshoe cascading waterfall, located below the 19th-century cotton textile mill that it powered over 100 years ago.

Firefly Acres - 45 Acre Horse Farm.

Firefly Acres! I can’t say enough about this hidden gem!
We were looking for a cabin to stay in while visiting the Falls Creek Falls State Park and found this wonderful place. There are 4 different cabins on this beautiful secluded horse ranch. We stayed in the Tool Shed. The décor was amazing with, unexpected gems everywhere you looked. It had super comfortable beds, a small kitchen, bath and a wonderful covered deck overlooking the horse pasture. If all that wasn’t enough, the Owners, Pete and Bambi were amazing! After a wonderful day hiking we called ahead and let them know we wanted to have a fire. When we returned, the fireplace in the pavilion was all ready to go, all we had to do was light it and enjoy! -A review by an unknown guest
