This huge waterfall just comes out of nowhere. You pay $2.00 at the welcome center (free for seniors and military) and head out the back door on a paved path. After just a short walk alone a curved path along the stream you suddenly have this tall waterfall pouring over a cliff. Well worth the trip and is a hidden... More

It was a short walk to the falls. You must enter through a small gift shop. Admission was only $1 each for Srs & military veterans get in free of charge. The young man at the gift shop was very friendly & was able to answer some questions for us. There was a wedding finishing up at the falls when... More

Toccoa Falls is a spectacular 186-foot high waterfall, higher than Niagara Falls - but of course, no where near as wide! It is one of the tallest free-falling waterfalls east of the Mississippi River and is located on the campus of Toccoa Falls College, a fully accredited Christian College. You enter through the gift shop and pay a nominal fee... More

My boyfriend and I went on a waterfall tour. This was his favorite waterfall. It does cost $2 to see but it's worth it.

We were doing a waterfalls sweep in the area and swung into this college campus to check it out. They charge $2, veterans free and seniors discount. Short walk along the stream to the falls. Must see!

When we arrived at the gift shop to go through to see the falls, they tried to charge us more money than $1.00 for an adult and .50 cents for children. They were charging $2.00 a person. I spoke to the manager and she said that the school needs more money to pay their staff, so they are making visitors... More

Every time we go to Cornelia, we go to Fender's to eat and then to Toccoa Falls. I have been twice, May and August 2016. Both times, I didn't have to pay anything to go to the falls. The falls are on the Toccoa College campus and there is a guard shack at the entrance to the college. This is... More

We've been several times, even before they built the gift shop. It's not a bad price to get in now. Just a dollar a person. The gift shop has some cute things. And the campus is interesting to look around. The falls itself is very nice. It's quiet and serene. You could sit on a rock all day and just... More
