Tucked away by Madison Indiana is a beautiful State Park. The hiking in the Canyon is great. And the waterfalls are priceless. The only thing to look for in the forecast is rain, because the waterfalls are supplied by smaller streams and without much rain, its just a trickle, but still pretty cool. The inn was nice, but the campground... More

We were visiting family in central Indiana when someone told us about this state park. We decided this might be a good stop on our way home. As we were driving there, the storms were already developing and was afraid that they would ruin our day. We got to the park and parked, and it started clearing up. There are... More

We walked two of the trails and had a great time...unfortunately it had been dry so the falls weren't much to speak of. A very well done state park...though maybe a little lame for an adventurer who likes to follow the path untaken.

We took our children and dogs to camp for the weekend and had a nice time. Great campground and they kept the grounds very clean. Pool was closed when we visited during our visit. The trails are nice.

We have camped here numerous times. Love everything about the campgrounds, except for the showers. How can you take a decent shower - after hiking the trails - when you have to hit the button every 10 seconds. Very difficult to give a child a shower. Please set a decent amount of time for the shower to stay on. Our... More

We came to the park to walk some trails. Most of the trails are pretty difficult to navigate, but the views are nice. Waterfalls aren't at their peak in July, but we did see one nice one. Would like to return in the spring. We didn't stay in the lodge but stopped by to take a look. It is beautiful!

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.
