A well kept park

A well kept park, with several walking trails, with a few views of the Ohio river. One of the trails has a tower built for you to climb around 40 feet to view above the tree tops.

This place is beautiful and has fun for all ages! Love visiting here! We have hiked here, camped, dined at the Clifty Inn, enjoyed the breathtaking views plus so much more! Will be going back many times this spring and summer!

This is such a pretty park. There is an inn and restaurant on site. Nature center and at least two playgrounds for the young kids.

I was passing through the area and decided to stop by Clifty Fall State Park. I didn't have much time to hike the trails, but I was able to see Clifty Falls and Little Clifty Falls. It was winter time so there were icicles and other areas of ice around the falls. The overlooks to both falls are easy to... More

This state park is like a resort. Great restaurant, large and comfortable sitting areas, swimming pool/hot tub, and very comfortable rooms (with fridges). And the staff were super as well. Our group came to ride our bicycles and we were wonderfully surprised by the quiet, scenic backroads with virtually no traffic. A great find.

We visited the park this past weekend after a couple of inches of snow. We hiked Trail 7, and around the road circling the shelter house area. Beautiful views of the partially frozen falls. The steps were somewhat Ice covered and I could have used my yaktraks, but did ok in sturdy boots. Definitely want to return again in winter... More

I am fortunate to live near the park so have an annual park pass. It's a peaceful and beautiful place to drive through as well as to take nice walks. The park is well maintained and managed.

We enjoyed hiking on the trails. Even in January, the trails are still scenic and beautiful. There are so many creeks and waterfalls (4 main waterfalls). There are several trails for ability-level too: from easy to rugged. We plan on going back when the weather gets warmer to do Trail 2 (the one that takes you right up to the... More
