One of the most beautiful water falls in Georgia. Be sure to make this one of your stops when you visit Dahlonega.

This is not an easy place to find, and when we finally found it, it was closed due to camps being in session. I’m sure it’s a beautiful waterfall, but we couldn’t see it, I think the gate guard said it’s closed May-Aug, but I...More

Best is to go here when the Camp is not in session. You can drive right to the fall. If camp is in session, you have to walk. Not far. Very pretty, Great place for photos

Short hike to beautiful falls. I think closed during summer when camp in session. Good photo op. Fun for family.

In town for a wedding, but this is worth the trip in and of itself. We were greeted warmly and given a useful tour. The falls provide a stunning visual and auditory backdrop to your peaceful trip. I didn't want to leave.

Very beautiful waterfall when the rains have been plentiful and it is easy access as long as you dont give up easily on finding it.

Easy to get to, although the camp's directions are a little odd. Can park at the top or the bottom of the falls. Must see if in the area.

Beautiful falls that you can get to by car. Definitely worth visiting. You need to go into the visitor center so they can open the gate, and then just drive to the parking lot on your right.

Very scenic and you can get very close if you want to, especially below the falls. Paved parking within 100 ft of the falls. If the gate is closed to the parking lot, there is a trail marked that begins behind the visitor building...short 5...More

You can drive close enough that you can take some beautiful pictures after walking onto the foot bridge.

Today (27th) is the final day of summer camp. Access to the falls, I believe is open year round.

My daughter goes to summer camp there and it is absolutely gorgeous. You can drive into Camp Glisson to get in, and park at the base of the falls. There is also a boardwalk to get to the top of the falls on the road to the... More
