Very beautiful falls

Worth seeing, especially after a good rain when there is lots of water. the red rhyolite rocks are especially beautiful.

The water tumbling over the rock outcrop is indeed spectacular, and the whole scene is genuinely pretty as the water runs away along the brook between the trees would make this an idyllic spot. On the midweek day when we stopped it was really full of people, and I can only imagine how crowded it becoems on a weekend.

There's a short rocky trail to walk on to get to a point to climb in the waterfall. Wear some water shoes or something with good traction. There's picnic tables and restroom. Restroom smells...

We camp in the area every year and this is a great place to come in the late afternoon to just sit with friends in the water, let the kids swim and climb the rocks. Great photos can be taken here, I have never seen it packed. Always just a few people here when we come every year. If you... More

Beautiful falls and beautiful surroundings. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the gravel road to the park. Loved it!

this was amazing to see. We were there after some heavy rains so it was really flowing over the falls. Very pretty place to take pictures!

I live near Rocky Falls and it is spring fed. The falls does not dry up. There are bathrooms, picnic tables, and trails to hike.
