We stumbled upon this place. Incredible views and the water was thundering when we were there. Could not believe that this place isn't more prominent as it was absolutely breath taking when we were there.

An awesome place to walk on a boardwalk that leads you to a closer view of the falls on the New River. Great descriptions along the path too. Take a picnic and enjoy. Also, looks like some good fishing holes.

We recently visited Sandstone Falls while camping close by in WV. It was a cold rainy day but the fall colors and falls were still beautiful! The boardwalk was really well kept and made walking easier in the rain. The trail has some nice view points/over looks of the falls and you can also go off the boardwalk and venture... More

Though it was a rainy day, we didn't want that to keep us from getting a closer looks at these falls. There is a very nice boardwalk that gives you good views of the "lower" and "upper" falls. The falls are wide, and were very powerful on this day. The road is a little narrow, and winding, leading you to... More

This review reflects conditions at the time of our visit in early October 2014, and might not be applicable at other times of the year or other years. Having said that, we were very disappointed after a long, tedious drive to get there. The falls are advertised as the widest and perhaps the prettiest falls in the state. Not this... More

I was here in August 2014 when the river was at minimal levels, but still the falls were beautiful. The falls are not high but very long and can be viewed from many angles and up close ... depending on the flow of water of course. You can follow the boardwalk and small bridge to the river for a good... More

It takes a bit of driving to get to Sandstone Falls, but the trip is worth it. While the overlooks along the way to the Falls are worth a stop, the true experience is best had at eye level with the New River and the Falls itself. Powerful yet peaceful at the same time, this place is definitely worth a... More

My family drove through on a snowy day, but the views were still stunning. The visitor's center employees were kind to my son, who wanted to collect his national park stamps. We didn't very long because of the weather, but it was still a worthwhile visit.

visited the falls for the first time. the river was beautiful. I really think the area could be cleaned up a bit. some of the walkways could be updated and cleaned up as well. I really wish wv state parks would have more money for updates, cleanups, ect....this spot could really be so much more. would go back, it was... More
