Camping In Fall Creek Falls

The Ultimate Camping Experience at Fall Creek Falls State Park

For many people, a vacation to a state park isn’t complete without a good camp-out. Those visiting Tennessee’s largest state park, Fall Creek Falls State Park, will find plenty of camp sites. Over two hundred sites are available to accommodate those camping with an RV or tent. The campground divides into three camping areas, each featuring a bathhouse, playgrounds, picnic tables and grills, and water and electric hook-up. Each site may contain only one camping unit, whether a camper, RV, pop-up, or similar. Three tents are allowed for each site.

A maximum of eight people can camp per site. Campers must pay for all sites in advance at the ranger station upon entering the campground. The campground allows a maximum of two weeks for camping, and campers can make reservations in advance. Those seeking a more rustic experience can use the park’s three back-country campsites. All back-country campers must register and purchase a permit before camping.

Campfire Traditions and Wood Collection Guidelines

Most camping expeditions include an evening spent in front of a roaring camp fire. Fall Creek Falls State Park encourages this time-honored tradition and offers firewood for sale at the campground.

Campers may collect dead wood found around the campsite, but they must not cut wood from live trees, as this is absolutely prohibited. They must also remember not to bring in wood from outside the park, as this introduces deadly pests and diseases to the park’s native trees.

Amenities and Enjoyment for All Campers

If camping is part of a family’s experience at Fall Creek Falls State Park, they won’t be disappointed! With all the amenities one can ask for in a campground, everyone can enjoy the beauty and majesty of one of the Southeast’s most prominent and popular vacation destinations.
