It is a very beautiful state park but the parking area is very small. The hike is nice and the triple falls are impressive.

Went and visited, it was awesome and the rain made it nice. Really enjoyed the state hatchery as well. This is a gem to be discovered.

Stayed in the park for 3 nights in a Class A motorhome. Beautiful setting. Park is clean and has basic amenities. The Falls are dramatic (early spring) and offer good opportunities for hiking and photography. Many caves in the area. This is an official Colorado Wildlife Viewing area. We saw deer. Moose and bear were reported in the area but... More

This is a great Colorado State Park, although not huge, and is a great day adventure. We also enjoyed the natural caves on both sides of the falls. The walk to the top of the falls is very doable and worth it to see the falls from different angles. The water here is oxygenated from the nearby State Fish Hatchery... More

A great place to hike or camp. Spent the night in the campground, hiked to the top of the falls, viewed the caves, and generally had a great time,

Nice spot to go for a walk or hang with he family. I was there mid week and in early spring but it was a wonderful place to relax and walk and the drive is really scenic. If you have the time check it out.

Love this place. When I first met my boyfriend I took him up there and we had a great time hiking around and just chilling at the base of the falls. 4 years later, we got married at the ampitheater nearby. It's a great place with only a very short hike to get to it.

This little place is very pretty, but there is one secret at the top of the falls that was kind of a let down. The wife was very disappointed, but it's still a great place to see if you are in the neighborhood. Oh, the let down? The water is piped over the edge, to make better falls. It's not... More
