Amicalola Falls State Park

CHECK-IN PROCEDURES:

Regular hours check in for the campground, Cabins 1-5 and picnic shelters takes place at the Visitor Center Sunday thru Wednesday 9 am-5pm and Thursday thru Saturday 9am-7pm. Check in is available at the Lodge 24 hours a day.

Spectacular scenery and hiking trails make this one of Georgia’s most popular state parks. At 729 feet, Amicalola Falls is the tallest cascading waterfall in the Southeast. Visitors have choices on how to best view the tumbling waters, ranging from an accessible pathway to a challenging trail with staircases. Those who tackle the latter can join the park’s Canyon Climbers Club. An 8.5-mile trail leads from the park to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the famous 2,175-mile Appalachian Trail. Numerous other trails provide shorter day hikes.

A mountain-top lodge is popular with guests who prefer hotel comforts, while cottages and a campground offer more rustic accommodations. The park's Maple Restaurant is known for its spectacular views and Sunday brunch buffet. For those seeking adventure, a five-mile hike leads to the Len Foote Hike Inn, Georgia’s only backcountry lodge.

Park guests should begin their day with a stop at the visitor center to see maps, an Appalachian Trail display, live animals and gift shop. Please note that Amicalola Falls is exceptionally busy during peak leaf season. Guests may prefer to visit during the week or carpool on weekends. Advanced reservations for accommodations are highly recommended.
