This natural wonder features a 90-foot waterfall named for Noccalula, a young Cherokee maiden who plunged to her untimely death rather than forsake her true love. She is memorialized by a statue and the engraved story of her fate. Nestled among the trees in the park is a pioneer village, a group of rustic, hand-hewn log buildings representing a display of pioneer living conditions, included in the village are a country store, grist mill, covered bridge, pioneer home, smoke house, blacksmith shop and more. Other park attractions include a War Memorial and Museum, botanical gardens, hiking trails, sightseeing train, playground, carpet golf, picnic pavilions, Wedding Chapel and honeymoon cabins, and meeting facilities. Noccalula Falls is home to an exciting variety of annual events, including "Christmas at the Falls" which brings in families from miles and miles away to celebrate the season,filling it with wonderful memories!
The Campground is also home to the Black Creek Trail, a 1.7 mile long crushed stone walking/biking path that runs from the Wedding Chapel down along the Black Creek Gorge to the bottom of Lookout Mountain. Intersecting the Trail are several more miles of multi-use trails perfect for hiking and mountain biking.
Noccalula Falls Park entrance is located at 1500 Noccalula Road (on the left after you top the mountain). The Campground is next door to the Park, at 1600 Noccalula Rd.
