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

This is one of our favorite state parks -- a small but attractive park. At the bottom of the falls is a large area for playing frisbee or touch football or softball. Picnic tables are nicely spaced around the area, and toilet facilities are available. There is a walk-thru covered bridge which is great as a photo site. (By the... More

A series of small water falls for a total drop of 250 feet over a quarter of a mile. The quantity of water is not large, but the falls are beautiful and one can walk right up to them.

It's a good place to hike with small children, not too strenuous and long. I plan use the available grills and make a day of it on my next visit.
