About the facilities

We will be staying at the Group Site 2 Cabins at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee. The cabins have screen windows and four to six bunk beds. There are 24 cabins with a maximum occupancy of 150. Each family will have one or more cabins as needed. There are three bath houses with each one having a men's and women's side. For those desiring more comfort, the camp is within a reasonable distance of several hotels. The state park also offers Cabins (full comfort, $165-200 a night) and RV camping for which you will need to make your own reservation with the park.

We will be singing in one of the large empty cabins.

Volunteers will be needed for each meal and for cleanup.

Those with special dietary needs will need to provide their own meals. There is a refrigerator and freezer in the kitchen to which you can have access. Remember to label your food.

Campers under age 18

Any campers under age 18 whose family is not attending must be sponsored by an adult or family attending camp.

Location and travel

The park is located 2.25 hours southeast of Nashville and 1.5 hours north of Chattanooga. For those flying, the Nashville airport is usually considerable less expensive than Chattanooga.


Please mail payment no later than two weeks before camp. Please write "Sacred Harp Camp" in the memo.
