With 56 state parks, over 80 waterfalls, and 1100 miles of trails, why wouldn’t you want to spend time camping in Tennessee? With so many amazing waterfalls, it’s hard to figure out where to start. Fall Creek Falls State Park is Tennessee’s largest and most visited state park. The park is more than 26,000 acres sprawled across the eastern top of the rugged Cumberland Plateau. Fall Creek Falls, at 256 feet, is one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern United States. Other waterfalls within the park include Piney Falls, Cane Creek Falls and Cane Creek Cascades. Another beautiful spot is Cummins Falls State Park which is Tennessee’s eighth largest waterfall in volume of water and is 75 feet high. Looking to park your RV in Tennessee? Check out Henry Horton State Park, which was constructed in the 1960s on the estate of the former governor of Tennessee. There are plenty of lodging options from tent camping, to RV, lodge, and cabin camping.
