This is a great state park. We love the trails next to the falls. The trails are clean, safe and have access to the water views. Picnics on the rocks are a wonderful weekend treat. There's a small hot dog restaurant close by that has a huge variety of toppings. The convenience store is not very clean, but we didn't... More

A trip to High Falls State Park, is always nice, but the hiking trails are especially beautiful in the fall. The people in charge of the park are always helpful and friendly. If you visit on a week-end when the historians are there, you can learn and appreciate the history of the falls.

This was our third trip camping at High Falls and our second time to stay in a yurt. The yurts are awesome! Easily sleeps six, has a working heater (even in sub-freezing weather) and electricity. No cooking facilities, but we brought a cooler, camp stove and Mr. Coffee. The bath facilities are nearby. The porch on the yurt has a... More

This park has over 4.5 miles of hiking trails in addition to a playground, picnic area, water activities and several campgrounds. There are even yurts available to rent. We took the 1.5 mile Falls Trail which is a loop. What I loved was that you can see the falls right at the beginning of the trail so if people get... More

The falls were beautiful. The trail was somewhat steep but the falls were about 100 feet into the trail so it was very doable with our 4 year old. We did not walk the entire trail but we're able to see exactly what we went to see. The man at the park enter able was very helpful and suggested two... More

The waterfalls here are great but are not the center of focus for the park. Emphasis seems to be on camping and boating. Trails in the area of the falls are in very poor condition. Late fall is not the season to see a full running waterfall unless there have been unusually heavy rains in the watershed. I wish the... More

Bottom line, the waterfalls and trail down to the bottom of the falls are worth a visit. The park itself is not that great in my view, but the falls are worth it. Note, was told they are going to work on the dam, so the water levels will be way down, so check with the park if you are... More

I have always liked coming here to see the ducks. Fishing off the pier is cool too. The picnic areas, and the pool are a nice way to enjoy the family. There are also occasional play grounds for young children. Very pretty time in nature.
