Located just over an hour’s drive north of Chattanooga and two hours from both Nashville and Knoxville, Fall Creek Falls State Park is an easily doable weekend getaway for many Tennessee residents that’s perfect for camping if that’s your travel style. It’s one of the state’s largest and most visited, covering nearly 30,000 acres with lush forest, streams, gorges, and waterfalls. The star attraction is the 256-foot-tall Fall Creek Falls, one of the highest in the eastern U.S. Visitors can take advantage of a myriad of outdoor adventures too, including hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, ziplining, and even golfing, with an 18-hole championship course within its boundaries. There are cabins and campsites available for overnight stays, along with a wide range of vacation rentals and a handful of hotels just outside the park.
