Camping at Waterloo Falls
Holy cow, where do I start... First off, single campsite 50 feet from a water fall and swimming hole that you can park right on site. It's a babbling brook soundscape that will put any sound machine to shame. Walk another 100 yards and you come to a smaller fall but a giant basin for swimming. The gated campsite not only provides security from late-night riff-raff but it's a testimony to how many people come just to visit this place for its pure beauty. Second, they have a Pavillion with full amenities for weddings and silimar events with a loft over top that has all the accoutrements of home. As a bonus for primative camping, there is a communal bathroom with actual toilets and running water plus a fully loaded shower one door over. If that wasn't enough... GLAMPING SITE! Giant perma-tent up on a stilted platform with bed, dressers and a fire pit with loungers on the balcony. Thirdly, you will not meet a nicer host than Alice. She truly cares about making this the greatest experience you can have and after 4 days here, I have yet to see her not doing something that involves the maintenance and hospitality aspect of a pleasant stay. I booked 3 nights and am extending it the last day because for a city boy that loves camping but enjoys a bathroom and shower... this has been incredible. 5 stars all day, everyday.

Best Camping Trip Ever!
This was probably the best camping experience I’ve ever had! The campsite was adorable and had everything we needed. The two waterfalls on site are beautiful and super nice to swim and chill by. It’s also super nice that there’s bathrooms with running water at the pavilion so you can actually get clean! Alice had everything prepared for us and everything went smoothly, we will definitely be back!

Amazing Trip!
I absolutely loved this location. Alice was so welcoming and friendly and had absolutely everything we needed right there organized and easy to get to. The bed was comfortable and the location was so relaxing! 10/10 would visit again.. in fact we’re already planning to!

Camping at Waterloo Falls
An absolute gem
Alice was a great host who let us car camp on the property. Can’t say enough great things about this spot - what a gem! The views are so beautiful and such a fun time to be able to swim on the property. Hope to return in the future!

A Magical Glamping Experience!
This location is an absolute dream! From the moment we arrived, we felt as if we were transported to a little corner of paradise in Tennessee. The tent is tucked away in the trees and stocked with everything you need for a smooth glamping experience. A short walk upstream from the tent is upper falls, where we tubed from the waterfall all the way back to our site. So cool! Do NOT skip on this rental! Alice is the perfect host, and even offered a little backstory on how she found the property. We're SO happy we booked this Hipcamp! Waterloo Falls is more magical than anything we could have ever imagined.
