Magnificent falls..high and sparkling in the autumn sun. This can be a physical experience, but it also has a less strenuous possibility. The area is large enough that you can feel alone and away-from-it-all even on a busy day. Surprisingly uncommercial for a commercial enterprise.

Seeing Bushkill Falls for the first time is amazing. This is one of the places I bring visitors to the Poconos area.

First time at Bushkill Falls for the family and definitely not the last. We're already thinkin about goin back with a big group. Gorgeous natural place- reminds you of a Disney World adventure set but this is the real deal! Kids of all ages will love it as will couples. Very friendly staff as well.

Spent the day hiking with my son and family. My grandsons were 9 and 6; they loved every minute! It was a beautiful day; and I was amazed at how easy the hike was, and how well kept the grounds were.

The falls were spectacular, the hike was great. Love this place. We were glad there were refreshments, food, souvenirs available as many places close those things after Labor Day.

This is how it's billed. In my estimation it doesn't even come close to Niagara. However, it is in a forest setting and quite beautiful. There are several hiking trails from the top of the falls to the bottom which are very well kept. Plenty of benches along the way to stop and rest. There is a charge but worth... More

My wife and I first visited Bushkill Falls 23 yrs ago for our honeymoon. It was a nice place to visit then and it is still a nice place. We walked the longest trail and saw many beautiful waterfalls. We would highly recommend visiting this place.

The price for this time of year was very expensive even for a senior rate. There were way to many stairs for our dachshund to climb so we had to carry her the entire time.

Trails are great and walkways are virtually everywhere to get to places you couldn't go to otherwise!
