It was too cold to do what we had planned to do while staying on the pocono mountains so we did some other things that were on our list. We drove out of our way to see this because we had seen it was a do not miss. Honestly, we thought it was ok. There is ALOT of walking and... More

I took my family here on Sunday morning for a nice hike through the woods and views of the beautiful scenery that the area has to offer. I have many pros from my visit and almost would give it 5 stars, however the price of admission alone takes me down one star. The cost was about $13 per adult and... More

There were too many people to enjoy this beautiful display correctly. Although we had a great time all the trails we went on were packed with people and stopping to get pictures was difficult.

My little family and I really enjoyed our hike! The only down fall about Bushkill was the price of the food! We are already charged to get in, why would you charge 4 dollars for a hot dog?

Yeah, it costs a lot to get in. Yeah, it costs extra for any additional activities. Yeah, a family spending the entire day here can drop a lot more cash than expected. But, the falls are numerous, varied and worth seeing. The trails involve a lot of up and down on well maintained trails with easy to navigate stairs. Most... More

We actually booked this trip because my toddler is obsessed with The Gruffalo and wanted to go to "the deep dark woods." We were not disappointed! It was BEAUTIFUL and there were a lot of fun things for our little guy to do.

My wife and I enjoy a good hike. We took the longest route (red) and we were finished in 2 hours. Which included several picture stops and some time chatting by the stream. The views were great, and I loved the sound of the flowing water. The trail areas around the gorge and main falls are all wooden staircases and... More

During a recent visit to East Stroudsburg, PA we visited Bushkill Falls. Initially we were surprised that there was an admission price, but after reading the website we realized it is a privately owned area. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the trails. They were extremely well manicured and easy to hike. We hiked the red trail... More
