We have visited many state park lodges and the food here is always hot (or cold) and of very good quality. You just can't beat it!

This was our first visit back since hurricane strength storms took out trees and trails a number of years ago. We were impressed with the trail upgrades near big and little Clifty Falls. However, we were disappointed with the dead end block wall and lack of fall views due to summer foliage. Loved the bridge across Tunnel Fall. Really wish... More

Beautiful lodge and restaurant. Food was great and very reasonable pricing. Great views and photo opportunities! We liked trails 6 & 7. Although they were listed as "moderate", we found them rather easy to navigate. There are many steep steps. The falls were pretty--Big & Little Clifty! Would recommend visiting!

One of the premier attractions at this jewel of a state park is the falls. There are four of them and all are viewable with a short walk from off the pavement.

Erin at the Inn Front Desk was phenomenal! She was kind, courteous, helpful, and welcoming. The walk down to the Falls was breathtaking! The whole park was very clean!

The trails weren't stroller friendly as we quickly found out but the views were terrific. There were nature activities every day at convenient times. There's something for everyone in the family there.

A nice hotel/inn in one of Indiana's finest state parks! The buffet is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and offers a wide variety of down-home foods cooked the old fashioned way! A spacious family sitting room is stocked with a big screen TV, puzzles, blocks, cards, etc. for family fun. An outdoor verandah overlooks a magnificent view of the... More

Clifty Falls has great trails for hiking and several beautiful overlooks. Unfortunately there had not been much rain prior to my visit so the falls were minimal, but still worth the visit. Beautiful deer and wild turkeys running around.
