Gorges State Park

DroneVU Studios went on location to Gorges State Park located at 976 Grassy Ridge Road, Sapphire, NC 28774 to film some great aerial footage of waterfalls, mountains, and the park’s facilities using our state of the art drones.

Plunging waterfalls, rugged river gorges, sheer rock walls and one of the greatest concentrations of rare and unique species in the eastern United States are found within Gorges State Park. An elevation that rises 2,000 feet in only four miles, combined with rainfall in excess of 80 inches per year, creates a temperate rain forest and supports a collection of waterfalls.

Currently, Gorges encompasses nearly 7,500 acres and is the only state park west of Asheville North Carolina.

Gorges State Park opened its new 7,100 square-foot Visitor Center on October 12th 2012. The Center was designed and built to national green building standards. Additionally two large picnic shelters with restrooms, and a maintenance facilities were completed. The Visitor Center is home to the park offices, large exhibit hall, a 75-person auditorium, 40-person classroom, and large covered wrap around decks offering outstanding southern views of the escarpment and park.

While onsite at the park, we were impressed by the spotless facilities, helpful staff, and of course the breathtaking mountain and waterfall views. We captured some phenomenal aerial drone footage of Bearwallow Falls, the surrounding mountains, and some of the facilities.
