"Mingo Falls" Top 5 Page for this destination Great Smoky Mountains National Park Off The Beaten Path Tip by bigorange1103

  Mingo in April
by bigorange1103

Mingo is located on the Cherokee Indian Reservation. It is not in the national park but is definately worth the ride!!!! When you enter Cherokee, turn left onto Big Cove Road. Follow it a few miles until you see Mingo Campground and turn right. Park in the lot and the stairs are straight ahead. It is approx. .2mi. (just a bunch of stairs) to the top!! I believe it is the largest falls in the area and definately the easiest to get to.
