Clifty Falls SP is wonderful. Wife and I camped here (lot 31) for 3 days in the middle of the week. Campground sites are spacious and grassy with gravel drives and most sites seemed level. Comfort Stations are "well worn" but clean. Electric only. Some drive thru sites available. Staff was polite and helpful. Bird watching in this park is... More

We camped here in a Big Rig, and I will note that while there were many sites in which we would comfortably fit, the only connection available is 30 amps. That said, we juggled our usage and had a wonderful time. The sites are spaced unusually far apart so that every site has some space. Everything was clean and well... More

Clifty Falls State Park is a wonderful park with many hiking trails. My favorite one is Big Clifty which used to lead to a staircase walking down into the ravine where Big Clifty Falls is located. They blocked the passageway in the recent past probably to avoid accidents. The view is not blocked, and you can get to the ravine... More

Just to let you know from the beginning we went to Clifty Falls with 4 adults and 6 kids all under the age of 6. Campground - The campground was really nice. There is not much shade in the whole campground. There are probably about 10-15 spots that have really nice shade. All the others are pretty open without any... More

We spent about 3 hours here and loved it. There are several waterfalls that don't require very long hikes to see, though there is some climbing involved. The guy at the admission booth told us to look for wild turkeys with their babies and we saw several groups of them, as well as birds, a gopher, and a rabbit. When... More

We have had the pleasure to visit the Clifty State Park and recently stopped by again during our trip to Madison over the weekend. This state park will cost $7.00/car for Indiana residents to enter for the day. Its well work the few dollars for a day of fun exploring wooded trails, several waterfalls, and options for swimming and fishing... More

I'd recommend trail 5 in the summer months. Part of that trail has a tunnel through the cliffs. Bring a flashlight, and be prepared for your shoes to get wet. The tunnel is open from May through October. When we visited in June, the waterfalls we saw in the park had little or no water.

Wow so many pretty trails and beautiful terrain.We went in late May so the falls weren't really flowing but we still enjoyed ourselves. The more rugged trails had some very neat terrain, falls, and bridges. Some of the trails have shorter ways to view the falls and couple have wheel chair access. There are several different trails to choose from... More

I love camping at Clifty! The non-electric sites are spacious and all have a fire pit and picnic table. The bathrooms/showers are clean and easily accessible. There's also a lodge with a nice restaurant. The trails are beautiful and the falls are amazing. It's also close to Madison, an adorable little town with tons of cute shops.
