In the early 1800s, the site was a prosperous industrial town with several stores, a grist mill, cotton gin, blacksmith shop, shoe factory and hotel. High Falls became a ghost town in the 1880s when a major railroad bypassed it. Today, park visitors can enjoy the scenic waterfall on the Towaliga River and hike to the remaining grist mill foundation. A campground, picnic areas and canoe rental are also available. This pretty park in middle Georgia is conveniently located near I-75 and makes a restful side trip for travelers.

For visitor safety, swimming is allowed in the pool only, but not the river or falls. Numerous rocks submerged in the river have deep holes eroded in them, and these can easily trap or injure someone.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
December 29 A little piece of heaven by Laura-Grace
I love to take time to hike down the trail and just sit in the peacefulness of nature. The roar of the river is healing for the mind and soul; while the hike is great for cardio:)
February 8 absolutley amazing by joel overbay
I spent the weekend there with my life partner Wesley, he and I would swim in the beautiful waters, cuddle under the stars, and eat the best smoked ribs from this cute old man who sold them to us. If you have an amazingly beautiful life partner like I do, spend time with him here. I love you Wesley R! I love you too high falls!
June 5 Very Clean and easy access off I-75 by Glen and Belinda
We camped in a fifth wheel and the sites were level, wide, and easy to get into. Lots of pull-throughs. We will visit here again. We stayed in May 2010
