My husband and I drove the three hours north from the Jersey shore as a day trip. We were a little worried of what we were going to see. We got to the main entrance before lunch and it was not that busy. There was still enough parking. Yes, paying $13.50 (per adult) could be a little steep. IT IS... More

This is a beautiful place to visit if you are in the northeast PA region or day trip from the surrounding areas. I would recommend getting there early if you plan to go on a weekend, we went on Saturday morning and got there when it opened (9:00 am). We did not have to wait in line and the trails... More

I have known about Bushkill Falls for quite some time, but never actually went for a visit until very recently. My husband is suddenly on this road trip/day trip kick, and Bushkill Falls came to my mind, so off we went. It was a great way to spend a few hours on a really nice day. There are four trails...

wow! This is a must see if you are in the Bushkill area. The falls are beautiful. Many things to do in the park. Be aware that the falls are for someone in good health. There are stairs to get down-up. Some areas may be slippery. Otherwise it's a great-beautiful experience to connect with mother nature.

We did all the trails, it took about 2 hours. I was so beautiful and a great activity for a really hot day because the falls keep the temperature cooler and it is well shaded throughout the park. There are a lot of stairs, just having knee surgery a few months ago it was not my most brilliant idea to... More

This is a beautiful place to visit! Be prepared for lots of steps though!! Unfortunately, there are no trails accessible for wheelchairs. There is a lot of walking and taking staircases. You can pack a lunch and spend the day if you want to walk all of the trails. Wear good walking or hiking shoes and bring your camera. The... More

Bushkill Falls has a modest entrance fee. There are several hikes available from easy to strenuous. The falls were beautiful and the walks around the brooks was relaxing and peaceful.

Wander on the trails to get to the falls. What beauty at the end when you see the falls. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and definitely bring the camera. Depending on the temperature the mosquito repellant would be a good idea also.

The vacation guides advertise this as the Niagara of PA. This leads you to believe the falls are really bigger than they actually are. The fall is pretty and is a nice scenic walk. The trail is not very strenuous but well maintained. The fee is expensive. You can walk the whole area in an hour. I did not have... More
