We stopped here en-route from NYC to Manchester VT. Lovely waterfalls and open area with picnic tables and plenty of parking, toilet facilities were basic but clean. We visited on a Tuesday, there were no charges in operation.

My wife and stopped by here for the first time yesterday after hiking in Warren and enjoying a lunch in the pretty town of Kent. There is a fairly steep parking charge of $9 for CT residents and $15 for out of state. Hopefully the money goes for upkeep of the park, not into the black pit of CT's general... More

Kent Falls offers a pleasant area to picnic and hang out, and a short hike. The hike goes up the south side of the falls, across at the top (the last bit isn't well-signed; just keep going), and down the north side. The north side is less well maintained. Although small, the falls are exciting because the drop is dramatic... More

We visited the falls before you had to pay $15.00 to park. Te falls are pretty but not worth that kind of money unless you plan on spending the day. The walk to the falls took only 20 minutes, round trip.

This is the second time we visited this spot with friends and family. It was worth the visit. The drive to the falls is beautiful. The fall looks amazing. Our kids had a lot of fun. My 2yr old son was not ready to come out of the water. There are no restaurents, only one lady selling ice cream. We... More

The drive to the falls is beautiful and the falls themselves are lovely. You can climb up stairs to the right of the falls; handrails are available. When the rails end, you can continue your hike and then either come back down the same way or go down the opposite side of the falls. It is a nice hike. Large... More

Remember the TV show "Who's the Boss?" Remember that house? Yeah, that's what Kent, Connecticut actually looks like. And Kent Falls is the jewel of the area. Stunning at any time of year, Kent Falls State Park provides a quiet retreat for picnicking and hiking, set against the backdrop of 250 foot Kent Falls. Well worth an afternoon visit.

We came in the winter, the falls were partially frozen and absolutely stunning!! The trails provided nice areas to walk/hike. Have been back several times while we stay in CT for three months.

We visited on 25th Jan'15 and drove from Stamford. The drive was absolutely pleasant as we took the Long Ridge Road & I 684. We passed some beautiful hilly towns on our way. When we reached, there were 2 cars in the parking. By the time we left it was almost full!! Its a beautiful place with the water half... More
