Cummins Falls State Park is a state park in Knox County, Tennessee, located on the banks of the Tennessee River north of Knoxville, TN. Located in Cordell Hull Watershed, the area has been home to a variety of wildlife including deer, elk, coyotes and other wildlife for over 100 years.
The gorge area of the park, like most parks, is a natural feature that remains uninhabited by humans and unchanged by humans. Those who want to enter the gorge need a permit to access the foot of a waterfall. Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and must wear a life jacket during the waterfall.
In case of an emergency evacuation, immediately respond to the ranger's instructions and enter the protected area marked with a yellow sign on the way through the gorge as a "protected area." If you have no concerns about your safety or ability, plan to enjoy the view from the waterfall view, but think about safety first. The paths, rocks, waterfalls and gorges are often slippery, so you should wear sturdy shoes.
