A paradise of more than 20,000 acres sprawled across the eastern
top of the rugged Cumberland Plateau, Fall Creek Falls State Park
is one of the most scenic and spectacular outdoor recreation areas
in America. Laced with cascades, gorges, waterfalls, streams,
and lush stands of virgin hardwood timber, the park beckons those
who enjoy nature at her finest. While Fall Creek Falls, at 256
feet, is the highest waterfall in the eastern United States, other
waterfalls in the park are Piney and Cane Creek Falls and Cane
The oak and hickory forest that covers most of the park gives
way to tulip poplar and hemlock forest in the gorges. The plants
and animals of the moist, protected gorges are not unlike the
species found in southern Canada. Mountain laurel and rhododendron
are abundant throughout the park, as are other plants and animals.
With its many amenities and panoramic natural setting, it is
little wonder that Southern Living magazine readers voted Fall
Creek Falls the best state park in the Southeastern United States.
The park is located in Bledsoe and Van Buren counties, 11 miles
east of Spencer and 18 miles west of Pikeville. It may be entered
from Highway 111 or Highway 30.
