Overall beautiful and makes you wonder about the park's history but gets really packed with people who are not really there for a hike and leave litter (water bottles, energy drinks) behind.

I recently visited Kent Falls State Park with friends. If you don't like crowds or paying for parking then go during the week. It's a bit quieter and you can find a table to have a picnic. Make sure you wear sneakers or hiking shoes as you will want to climb up to get a really beautiful view of the... More

We visited on a Saturday in early August, and the park was packed. The majority of the license plates on the cars in the parking lot were from New York, so I assume people drive up from the city to experience nature. It seemed as though every picnic table/grill was occupied by an extended family having a cook-out. People didn't... More

Great hike! It's hard to believe that Connecticut has such amazing state parks. We were there the day after it rained and the falls were just beautiful. The walk can be a bit challenging for the older crowd but it worth the work it took to get to the top. Thankfully there are working facilities there and it's also a... More

It is literally a series of falls with viewing stand in each level. Climb is a bit steep but not bad at all if you are wearing proper footwear. Really pretty and worth the climb to get to the top! Took the yellow trail from the top and not a bad hike at all. The yellow trail merged back into... More

I think this is a tale of 2 separate parks. If you arrive on a weekday, or perhaps not in the summer, you would find a beautiful park with several nice waterfall drops to view. The trail up the falls is nice, and the views are OK, except for they could do just a bit of trimming of overhanging branches... More

Ken Falls has a large lawn and picnic tables are available as well. You can certainly play ball on the lawn. It is perfect for families to spend a day playing, hiking and picnicking. There are restroom facilities available as well. The waterfall is nice and the hike up to it is an easy one as long as you are... More

Beautiful setting with an impressive waterfall but a lot of trash - picnic debris, tp in the woods. Good spot for kids who don't notice that sort of thing

Nice little hike up to the top of the falls. Very pretty grounds. Be sure to wear sneakers or boots as there are a lot of rocks to climb.

Visited with local family. Plenty of picnic tables and BBQs. Space to spread out and have room for s kick about with s ball and play frisbee. Lovely walk up the falls although some of the steps are hard work. A lovely place for a visit
