While me and my family aren't exactly nature lovers, we stil took time to enjoy the falls. An overall exciting way to plan to spend your day.

The falls are definitely beautiful but was a little taken back by the lack of maintenance on the rail systems around the falls. A small kid could actually go through some of the rails they are so deteoriated. The food at the dining area was OK but the prices are extremely high for what you get.

The waterfall views were beautiful and the exercise we got from hiking was great. Plenty of fellow tourists to bump into. I think it was a little overpriced but overall a nice experience. We also went paddle boating which was nice and inexpensive.

Went there this weekend. The experience was exquisite. The children loved it. Get back to nature.Roaring falls and an endless view of mother nature.Deer crossed our path.Streams out of a picture postcard. The views were outstanding. Get there at opening to avoid the lines. It is a must to visit when you go to the Poconos.

I wish I could have been able to give this attraction more stars. But the negatives just made it an average outing for us. We headed out and got there in time to stand in a pretty long line to purchase tickets. For whatever reason they had 1 person working the ticket line. It really could have used more attendants...

Wow I cannot believe that for a family of 4 we spent over $40 to go hiking and had to pay for a trail map. Pretty but just too expensive. It's always nice to see waterfalls but I'd rather do it in at a State Park for 1/4 of the cost. Ithaca NY is an amazing place to see a... More

Arrived at Bushkill Falls a little after 9am on a Tuesday. The grounds were wet after the previous night's rain. We knew about the $13.00 admission fee and felt it was definetly worth it! We did the red and part of the yellow trail. Took about 2 hours. The views of the falls were beautiful! Recommend wearing sneakers or hiking... More

Bushkill Falls is a very nice stop. The steps can be a bit wet so you do have to be very careful walking. I did not do the entire trail because I had a schedule to keep, but I would have liked to. I do think the cost is a bit outrageous. I would cut that in half. It is... More
