Last night our family went to Christmas at the Falls for the first time. We found it to be a great night and a wonderful way to make some additional Christmas memories. The park was lit up very well. We stood in line about 20 minutes for the little train ride, but it was more than expected. The train looks... More

There is a drought, so the only water falling was a trickle. Still beautiful and the leaves changing color were spectacular. A great place - if you are driving through - take a walk and dont miss it.

We took our grandchildren here and they loved it. We stayed all day. Rode the train many times. They had fun on the playground and touring the whole park. In their words, "one of the best days ever". Entry fee is very reasonable or we could not have done this with 4 kids!

We stopped by the Falls on our way to our Tennessee location. Due to drought we did not see but a trickle of water. It was also a very pretty park. It amazed me that it was in town. Be sure to see the whole park. I enjoyed the stop so much!!

It was a great park for our 4 year old. Apparently there is a drought, so the only water falling was a trickle. Still a nice relaxing afternoon. We brought our lunch from Flip Side Cafe and sat out on the picnic tables. Beautiful! And they had the bathrooms open.

Recently camped with my son here and we had a wonderful stay. The Falls and the area are GORGEOUS. The campground was clean, well kept, and well lit. There is a pool, small playground, volleyball court, media room, laundry room, and 2 bath houses. They also have 2 very nice cabins in the back of the property. They have overnight... More

The falls are pretty, but the park is really worth taking kids to and letting them see, feel, touch and smell what it was like to live in a bygone era. Take a picnic make a day out of it, let the kids run all their energy out. They will not forget it.

We were driving through the Gadsden area and decided to check out the falls in the park but there was a drought and there was almost no water falling and a fire ban was on in the area but this is a very nice park and there's camping here too. If I come this way again I would definitely stop... More

This is a beautiful place. I have gone there since I was a child. I would recommend going to see Noccalula Falls to anyone. And hopefully it has been raining so the water will be gorgeous. And also the train ride and walking through looking at the old building and the animals
