Fodor's Review

The 1,000-foot-deep Tallulah Gorge is one of the most impressive in the country. In the late 1800s this area was one of the most visited destinations in the Southeast, with 17 hotels to house tourists who came to see the roaring falls on the Tallulah River. Then, in 1912, to provide electric power, the "Niagara of the South" was dammed, and the falls and tourism dried up. Today the state of Georgia has designated more than 20 mi of the state park as walking and mountain-biking trails. There's also a 16,000-square-foot interpretive center, a 63-acre lake with a beach, a picnic shelter, and 50 tent and RV sites.
