Upon check-in the park host was friendly and informative. Our lot #27 was nice and shaded, but not angled like the graphic shows when selecting a site. The site next to us #26, angles into it or #27 angles into #26. Some sewer connections on other lots were in odd locations. Sites are close together. We totally loved the ability to go out and hit all the trails right from our door. We used the pool a couple times. Thought it was a bit small for the number of sites. The laundry and restroom facilities appeared clean. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wanted to give this park a 10 but sites are way too close together. There were a lot of activities going on while we were there so the park was full for the weekend. Our site was a buddy site, with the back of the trailer next door just inches from our awnings. We basically had no sitting area outside our door. The picnic table and fire ring were at the back of the site. All the sites in this row had the same setup, so there was no privacy while sitting out by your fire. There is plenty to do here if you have kids and our grandson enjoyed the pool, mini golf, train, petting zoo and a hike down into the canyon. The laundry had two washers and two dryers, although one dryer was broken during our stay. Wifi did not work for us at all. AT&T was sporadic, but our Verizon jetpack worked great. Restrooms were very clean and looked to have been recently remodeled. We enjoyed our stay but not sure we'll come back unless we can get one of two or three sites that weren't quite as close to the neighbors. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Site really not suitable. Could only connect to power, but water & sewer on wrong side. Will not stay here again; cannot reserve big rig pull throughs. Bottoming out danger for big rigs, if not careful. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Large, family friendly park with 71 back in 30/50 amp FHU sites, 6 pull through 30/50 amp FHU sites, 7 back in 30/50 amp W/E only sites, 43 tent sites with 30 amp and water, and 2 deluxe cabins. All RV sites had cable. Sites vary widely in length, levelness and lot spacing. Refer to the campground map before booking, as sites are marked "S" for 25 feet and under, "L" for 36 feet and over. Unmarked sites are between 26 and 35 feet. We uploaded many photos of different campsites to assist other campers when booking. Most sites have a concrete pad for your RV and asphalt for your tow vehicle. Interior roads are narrow and winding, mostly paved with some gravel areas, but are in rough shape. Getting in/out of sites can be challenging when the park is full. Some sites have trees that can interfere with slides and awnings. We stayed in site A19, a very level back in space with roomy outdoor sitting area and no obstacles to worry about. Main bathroom/shower area was attractive and clean, and consisted of two toilets and four showers per gender. Secondary bathrooms located in the laundry area. Laundry area had two washers (both out of order) and two dryers (one out of order) with no ETA on repairs. Media room with books and DVDs next to the laundry area. Office sells t-shirts, chips, ice and ice cream. Other amenities include a swimming pool (open Memorial Day through September), playground, volleyball court, meeting room and large pavilion. Gated entry and exit. Utilities worked well but are placed at the rear of the site. Water connection is shared with your neighbor, but we didn't have any problems with pressure. Verizon service was excellent. Lots of hiking/biking trails throughout the park, and of course, the falls are beautiful! Park has signs posted to lock up bicycles so they must have had theft issues in the past. Staff were friendly and helpful. The campground is next door to the Noccalula Falls park, but you have to pay a separate fee to enter (it has a train and petting zoo in it as well). Convenience store across the street and Walmart was a few miles away. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

First, let me start with the positives. The staff was very friendly. Even with a major tractor show going on this weekend, the park was clean. All the utilities worked well, including the wifi. There are several hiking trails, and the Noccalula Falls Park (about 1/2 mile walk) is very nice and worth spending an afternoon - or more. Now the down side. Most (the majority - there are a few exceptions) are very close together. I could not fully extend my main awning without literally hitting the RV in the site next to me. The utilities are all at the rear of the sites, and that can mean needing to run extra water and sewer hoses to reach. The water outlet is for two sites. If you are showering and the other RV turns on the water, you will know it. Even so, water pressure was good - almost too good. I had to keep my pressure regulator on the water hose to keep the hose from leaking around the connections. The roads were poorly maintained, which made staying under the posted 5 MPH speed limit no problem; you wouldn't even want to drive faster than that. There were several 40 foot motorhomes in the park when I was there, so it can be done. But overall, this park was designed for a time when RVs were much smaller and more compact. Still, it is a good base for exploring the Gadsden area. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss Noccalula Falls Park. If you are in good shape and feel adventuresome, hike down the gorge trail and go under the Falls. Black Creek Trail is easily accessible from the campground and is about 6 miles of nice gravel road. It is an easy walk and good for mountain biking. Little River Canyon is about 45 minutes drive away - a great sight.

We stayed here Sept.30 in site #A-6. Our 30'10" FW fit nicely on the concrete pad. Backing in was somewhat of a challenge since one side of the pad was about 6" above ground. The cable service was good but the Wi-Fi was somewhat spotty. The falls are quite pretty and just a short walk from the campground. Our BIGGEST issue with this campground was ants. We had an invasion into our FW ... they climbed up the water line. I didn't notice until the next morning that several sites near us had ant poison sprinkled on the concrete pad. If you camp here, make sure you take precautionary measures to keep the little buggers at bay. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the second time staying at this CG. It is very easy access off I-59. As with a lot of parks - some spaces are great and others a bit on the narrow side. The narrow ones have a lot of space directly behind them - so that is a plus, but it doesn't allow a lot of room for parking just one vehicle. We happened to have one of the narrow spaces our first 3 nights (A4) but because we decided to stay longer we had to move - and that actually turned out to be a bonus - great wide spot (B7). Being right next to Noccalula Falls City Park was nice, too - great walking trails and walking around on the rocks. Cable channels weren't too numerous and wifi was pretty typical for campgrounds - but we would definitely go back. For the price - you can't beat this place. Within an hour's drive there is plenty to explore especially in DeKalb County, AL. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Like others, mixed feelings on this campground. The staff was very nice. The falls were beautiful. Gadsden itself has a lot of shops and restaurants. This campground, is older and the sites are very close together (think a KOA, but even closer). Bigger rigs could have a tough time getting into a few sites. If you have a good spotter, you'll make it in... but the tight spots and trees can make it very, very tough. They do not reserve the pull-through sites, we were able to grab one on a first come/first serve basis. Our pad actually shared a parking spot, with the camper next to us. They had to park in front of our 5th wheel; we parked in the back. On the weekend, this place is very hard to navigate. Roads are a bit rough. Most sites had picnic tables and fire pits. Price was right. Nice playground for kids and there is a small pool. I did not see a dog run. I would give this property, a score of 7.5 stars. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tree-shaded, secure (gated), FHU sites in a city park right in town with a very helpful staff, a picnic pavilion, a picturesque waterfall, and a paved trail along the river were the positives. Crumbling concrete RV pads; narrow, sloping, too-short sites; broken utility connections; and off-season closures of most of the many other park attractions were the negatives. Just a little better maintenance and some site repaving would make this one of the most attractive city-owned campgrounds in the South! We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Bring good walking shoes and a walking cane if you're a bit unsteady with walking on gravel. Very nice laundry facility. $1.00 a load to wash. Same for drying. They do have a pool but it's October so that's null. They do have a children's playground.

This park is in a great location to explore Gadsden and surrounding areas. The price is right and the amenities good but there are too many sites that are jammed in together. In some, it's hard to tell which hookups belong to you. Thankfully the fire rings are just rocks so we were able to move ours to a better location. Yes, there's lots of trash bins but the whole park could use a good clean up and rearrangement. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Easy walks to moderate trails. Short walk to natural falls and gorge as well as museums and restaurants. All this and a great price. We camped at Noccalula Falls Campground in a Motorhome.
