We hiked a couple of trails and enjoyed the scenery. But, the copperhead snakes were plentiful. We ran across 14 in total. remember, if you see one there are several more around. I know this is not the parks fault, and snakes are going to found in areas like this. Just be careful and remember, never step over a log--step... More

Great hiking trails but not for the whimpy. Be prepared with good hiking shoes. If you love to hike you'll love these trails.

beautiful state park, great trails, pretty gorge and falls. the parking lot collector implied there are car break ins here so don't leave stuff in sight of potential thieves. i only wish hikers wouldn't leave so much trash behind...a real shame, people.

The park was so pretty. I think the trails are more for people who are in shape because most were very steep. The falls were visible and very pretty. The park was very clean.

Great park for hiking, picnic, family time. The park is well maintained, but there are no trash cans that we could find. Trails are well marked and our favorite is the one that winds along the creek bed. Big Clifty and Little Clifty falls are musts after a good rain. There is a charge to enter during the summer/fall, but... More

We spent a week at the Cliffty Falls Inn and Cliffty Falls State Park. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. The river view rooms are beautiful and the staff and food at the inn are excellent. We had a respite from the hectic world at Cliffty Falls. We highly recommend it and if you are lucky enough to...

Scenic trails, countless waterfalls, and endless paths welcome humans and their critter companions (dogs and children alike), moments outside Madison. Those with respiratory or circulatory illness may find the trails too treacherous.

Our extended family camps here every year. This is a very clean and well maintained park. The pool is VERY nice with zero entry and a twist slide for the kids plus a baby pool area. DNR always has a presence around so help is easy to find and keeps away trouble. Showers are kept pretty clean. The water in... More

Another great Indiana State Park. We have been going and staying in the park for 25 years. If you enjoy the outdoors, you will enjoy this park. Stay in the Lodge or in one of the nice camping spots and enjoy the pool or read a book. Enjoy the nature center, or Climb the fire tower and enjoy the view.... More
