Fall Creek Falls Star Party

Fall creek Falls state park is having a Star watching party at the end of this month, weather permitting.
Fall Creek Falls March 31 & April 1 Star Party Join us at the Inn for a of night star watching telescope viewing and discussions on the night sky. Telescopes will be offered or you may bring your own. For more information call (423) 881-5298.
On the other side of McMinnville (map) the park offers an Inn, individual cabins, and camping sites to fit your taste. The last Star party I went to was at cedars of Lebanon and it was a blast. They had set up several small to medium sized telescopes and had each one "aimed" at a different object.
Fall Creek Falls State Resort Park is one of the most scenic and spectacular recreation areas in America. Its waterfalls, cascades, sparkling streams, gorges, timberland and an unmatched variety of recreation facilities and activities have made it one of the most popular parks in the Southeast. Fall Creek Falls is one of the highest waterfalls east of the Rocky Mountains, plunging 256 feet into a shaded pool at the base of its gorge. The park's other falls, (Piney, Cane Creek and Cane Creek Cascades), though smaller, are just as impressive.
