Located on US Hwy 441 within the city limits of Tallulah Falls, GA.
One of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U.S., Tallulah Gorge is two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep. Visitors can hike rim trails to several overlooks, or they can obtain a permit to hike to the gorge floor (100 per day, not available during water releases). A suspension bridge sways 80 feet above the rocky bottom, providing spectacular views of the river and waterfalls. Tightrope walkers have twice crossed the gorge, and visitors can still see towers used by Karl Wallenda. A paved path follows an on old railroad bed, perfect for strollers and bicycles, while mountain bikers can test their skills on a challenging 10 mile trail.
Exhibits in the park’s Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center highlight the rich history of this Victorian resort town, as well as the rugged terrain and fragile ecosystem of the area. The persistent trillium, monkey-face orchid and green salamander are protected species found within the gorge. An award-winning film takes viewers on a dramatic journey through the gorge, including footage of rock climbers and kayakers. A gift shop offers snacks, jewelry, toys, books, walking sticks, clothing and more.

Camping with a 26? class A, we stayed at site #18. Sites 18 and 20 are awesome for RVs under ' ft or tents. They are relatively private (woods behind and on one side) and steps from the bath house. Site 12 is also great for privacy but a little farther from bathhouse. They have sites for bigger rigs too. We were there for 4 days in October. Quiet campground that has easy walking access to the hikes that go around the top of the Gorge. You can make on-line reservations for a specific site, which is recommended because they were fully booked when we were there.
