Rooms are nice and clean the top floors and rooms facing the river, seem to have trouble keeping up with the conditioning when its hot out. They are starting to get kinda of expensive on their rooms, and paying to enter the park to stay at the lodge for a nite is a joke, you have to pay once everyday... More

I have visited Clifty Falls State Park several times. There are trails to hike. Unless rain has been scarce, there are 2 falls to see. Places to swing, climb, or throw frisbees. Also is a hotel and restaurant with outdoor swimming pool and tennis. The hotel is very nice and you have a great view of the Ohio River.

I've grown up in Madison and spent countless days hiking the trails & wading in the creeks. I do miss the days of being able to go all the way to the bottom of Big Clifty & swim under the falls, but it's still a great place to take the family. Nice camping area as well.

We arrived at Cliffty Falls just after a severe rainstorm. Therefore, it is hard to give an accurate review. The north entrance was closed due to downed powerlines. Therefore we had to find the "south" entrance to the park. No directions were given. He happened upon the correct road. All trails except 2 were closed. The trail that we did... More

We visited here on a rainy day. Never been before as were just visiting madison. The kids enjoyed the waterfalls and scenery. It was very muddy and difficult to walk through some of the paths cause of the rain and mud puddles. Only thing I would suggest changing is some of the steps made of rock, they were quite steep...

I visited here on a day trip. Some of the trails are rocky and some are more typically of walking on the woods. This park has decent inclines and declines on most of the trails. I did every trail but trail 2. Trail goes through the creek. Down at the creek me and my friends found a few different fossils.... More

Camped Thursday-Sunday in July and loved it. Lots of kids around for our kids to play with and all our fellow campers were all very nice. The sites are very big and situated better than other parks we have visited. Sometimes the gravel drive in relation to trees and the firepit can be awkward but not here. Definately visit the...

We loved staying in the RV campground. The sites were large enough for our class A motor home with plenty of room between neighbors. The area was safe and had the usual picnic table with fire pit. As with all Indiana State Parks, you have electric but no water. Therefore the RV showers need some updating. the primitive camp has... More

We camp at Clifty Falls each year. There are so many great things about this park. The campground is clean and there are plenty of flat, nice grassy sites with trees for shade and privacy. The bathrooms in electric are decent enough and the the one is the primitive area is fairly new and very nice. The pool is great,... More
