My fiancé and I absolutely LOVED this place. So much that we stopped by a second time during our 5 day stay in Wears Valley. They have a small little shop with little knick knacks and gems/crystals you can purchase. They also offer ice cream...More

Great place from the hustle and bustle of the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. Beautiful waterfall and creek. You can get a simple meal and enjoy the peace and nature. One of my most favorite places.

It was cheap but just not interesting at all. Its all about knomes and rainbow magic. Its just not fun at all. You can get in the freezing river but its dangerous and not for little kids that cant swim. I would not reccomend it.

Not going to lie when you pull in here you are going to seriously think what in the world could be behind those wood walls. This place is absolutely amazing. The owners are without a doubt some of the sweetest people we have ever met...More

Beautiful views of the waterfall. You can purchase something and go down to the falls or pay $2/person and go down to the falls. They are all about the Gnomes there, so if you have a thing with gnomes be aware. Glad we stopped.

We sure do. Our local smoked trout plate is gluten free if you skip the crackers. Any of our sandwiches if you leave the bread. Our Friendly Fall-Chos are our take on nachos. They would work too. Hope to see you soon... More

Ice Cream, Snacks, Cold Drinks, Gem Mine, Light Show, a Relaxing Garden & a Waterfall! This is a great find in the Smoky Mountains.
