When it comes to convenient, weekend getaways, sticking closer to home is always a great idea. But as we turn the corner into spring, you might want to be considering where to take a longer trip in your new or used RV over spring break. We suggest the beautiful state of Tennessee for a spring camping destination and scheduling an unforgettable waterfall tour! It’ll be a stunning shift in landscape from the dusty plains of Oklahoma, and your whole family will love it! Check out these amazing state parks in Tennessee that boast waterfalls you’ll remember for a lifetime!
Get ready to have your mind blown: Ruby Falls is an underground waterfall. This one takes a beautiful waterfall and the thrilling experience of cave exploration and combines them into one unforgettable experience. Ruby Falls is one of Chattanooga’s trademark features, and is the deepest and tallest underground waterfall nationwide that’s publicly accessible. This one should definitely be on your bucket list.

Fall Creek Falls State Park

Cummins Falls State Park

Burgess Falls State Park
Another Tennessee park that’s nearby to Edgar Evins! Falling Water River lives up to his name with a series of waterfalls that delights visitors year after year.
