“Caesars Head State Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2011

A very picturesque State Park that is well not only well worth the drive, but your drive to the the park will be very scenic. we did some day hikes on the trails and saw some great natural sights. Our hike to Ravin Cliff Falls was very impressive. A $2 admission fee into this park is a great value for such natural beauty in the Blue Ridge mountains.

“Waterfalls and Great Views...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2009

Caesar’s Head / Mountain Bridge Wilderness, just like its counterpart Jones Gap, has trails and waterfalls… However, CHSP offers great views from roadside overlooks that doesn’t distinct between zealous and non-zealous outdoorsman (but the ascent and descent can be rough on your vehicle’s engine and brakes.). No disappointments.

“Overnighter to Raven Cliff Falls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2008

A few weeks back, we spent a weekend camping and hiking in Caesars Head State Park. We ended up arriving a little late due to work schedules and were afraid we wouldn't be able to check in for our campsites. The Park Ranger that met us at the trailhead, however, was extremley courteous and helpful and made a great impression while checking us in and pointing us in the right direction!

Our trip centered around camping overnight at one of the trailside sites and then hiking to Raven Cliff Falls as a day hike from the camp. The campsites themselves were suprisingly well spaced and gave the feeling of seclusion even though they were only a mile from the trailhead.

The falls themselves were a bit of a disappointment due to an overcrowded trail and being a bit overhyped for what they were. The best view was from the overlook at the Visitor Center itself which provides a panorama of mountains and valleys including Table Rock Mountain. Altogether it was an enjoyable experience, and we will probably be back to Caesar's Head to try some other trails (although we won't be returning to Raven Cliff again.)

“Nice Views good hikes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2007

Great views of the southern edge of the Blue Ridge from the park. Nice lake to see and enjoy. Nice hiking trails. The park is often crowded on the weekends in the summer and fall.
