I loved the view from the different levels of the falls. The best part was the option to go off the trail once it ended and do some rugged hiking. Overall, this was a great day trip combined with local vineyards and a visit to Macedonia State Park.

I really enjoyed my visit to Kent Falls State Park. It was a beautiful sunny day and you could see the falls clearly, though, it being September, they were not splashing us with spray as had been mentioned on the web page. We went a walk around the trails that lead over the top of the waterfall, which were steep... More

Fun little day out in Kent. The falls are small but you can make your ascent to the top where you can stop at the last platform or be adventures and carry on to the very top . People were splashing around having fun in the water .. We had not had a lot of rain prior but it was... More

Beautiful little park and waterfall that is absolutely worth a visit. I would have given this place 5 stars if they had an actual restroom instead of some very disgusting port-o-johns next to some equally disgusting dumpsters. Don't let that stop you though, just go to the bathroom first.

Nice little park, but on weekends has a National Park price tag ($15 per car). The hike takes about 25 minutes for the loop with kids in tow with a modest elevation gain - with some nice vistas along the way (more cascades than waterfalls). There's definitely lots of rules (from the parking attendant) - you can't go near or... More

This is always a nice place to visit for every season! Families, couples, dogs, all partake in the great outdoors. Nice spot for a photo-op.

Had a really nice visit. $15 for out of state car to park seems a bit much, but they do a nice job of maintaining the place and there were plenty of staff around, so in the end we felt that it was well worth it. Next time will bring so burgers and franks to grill on the grills on... More

Very nice place to picnic and nice walk on path up to top. One of our go to places when friends come to visit. Pairing it with lunch or dinner or shopping in Kent makes for a nice day

My husband & I have wanted to go here for quite a while since hearing about it, I think through AAA. It was not busy the day we went but I can see it could get very busy on a hot summer weekend or fall day. We did not walk to the top of the falls, it's very strenuous for... More

Pros: Large open grassy areas, beautiful falls, good hiking trail Cons: Didn't notice washroom facilities, could be more parking for the popularity of the park Arriving at the park near the beginning of September sure sounds to have paid off. I have glanced at a few other reviews of the park and many have made the comment about the parking... More
