Earning the reputation as Tennesee's most visited state park, Fall Creek Falls State Park is truly gigantic. At 26,000 acres it contains rivers, waterfalls, gorges, forests, and almost every other type of landscape you could imagine. It also includes one of the largest waterfalls in the United States, Fall Creek Falls. Rock climbing is a very popular sport in Fall Creek Falls State Park but is available by registration only.
The registration process is short and free, so make sure to stop by the park headquarters in the Taft Village area, or online at the Tennesee State Parks' website. If you would like to get out onto the water, aluminum Jon boats can be rented throughout the year. No motors are provided, so make sure to bring your own if you would like to have a more comfortable go at it. Visitors are also welcome to bring kayaks or canoes, and these options are available for rental as well. You can find more information on the website.
Approximately 56 total miles of hiking trails populate Fall Creek Falls State Park. These offer everything from short, 1-hour excursions all the way up to overnight trails for those looking to have an adventure. These trails are open year round and provide excellent views of the immense landscape. You are welcome to let your canine accompany you on these trails as long as they stay on an 8-foot leash or shorter.
Fishing can be done at Fall Creek Lake and tends to be the best during the springtime thaw. Fishing licenses aren't required to fish in these waters, but make sure you bring along your own equipment. Dogs are permitted on the shore as long as they're on a leash. Mountain biking trails are available here also, with 24 miles available only for MTB cyclists. Canines are to stay off of these trails at all times.
