The park itself is smaller than I am used to however there is no lacking in the fun department. There are 12 trails ranging from easy to rugged, lots of picnic areas, camping & I was surprised to learn of a nice pool on site. We drove by to check it out & was pleasantly surprised. We are already planning... More

We camped in non-electric/non-water section of park. The lots were smaller than I anticipated, but we were lucky to have 160. This was a nice tree shaded lot close to clean restroom. The timed showers were a challenge along with no hooks to hang anything. We enjoyed the trail hikes. There is a pool but one must pay to watch... More

My husband, teenage son and I hiked the Little Clifty, Big Clifty, and Tunnel trails today. Take note, when the trail is marked "rugged" you're going to want sturdy shoes and a bottle water. The park is well cared for. It felt safe. We really enjoyed our visit!

This park is really a gem. With three or four waterfalls, many visible after a short, not-strenuous walk, it's sure to be a hit with nature-lovers! My husband and I tried to take Trail 2 up the creek to make it to the bottom of Big Clifty Falls this month, but we didn't quite make it. The terrain was fine... More

Just wrapping up a cross-country trip & associated reviews. CLIFTY FALLS STATE PARK, IN was a great spot for RV Camping. Quiet, a bit off the beaten path (be careful about how your GPS gets you there, good amenities... and the falls on the North side of the park are beautiful... I'd come back...

Two friends and I recently spent one night at the Clifty Fall Inn. We had a Riverview suite and it was very nicely appointed, spacious, comfortable and clean. Since we were there during the week before the end of April, it was also very reasonably priced. We were a bit nervous about trying the hiking trails because most of them... More

This was our second time hiking in the park and it was great! The park is so clean and the hiking trails are challenging and beautiful at the same time. The trails are clearly marked. When they are labeled on the map as very rough, be prepared.

Fairly large park. Lots of areas (tennis, swimming pool, hiking). The trails to the falls (3) were rugged but doable for this 76er.
