“Great place to visit while in Davis, WV”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

They falls are the best thing to see but the hidden gem is taking a drive thru the park after dark. It's a great time for the kids to wind down after a busy day. We like to look for wildlife. This past trip we saw 2 rabbits, 6 deer, and about a 125 # black bear up near the petting zoo. We wondered if it wasn't trying to break in for a "snack".

“peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you don't mind walking about 270 steps this is a great place to visit. If that is too many steps for you, you can still see the falls with only walking about 20 steps. It is beautiful and breathtaking. Great place for pictures.

We stayed one night in the lodge and we witnessed a beautiful rainbow over the waterfalls. What a wonderful weekend.

“Awesome falls, and canyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Beautiful falls, and canyon. If possible visit the falls after a rain to see it running full force. Stairs down to the falls are a little steep for many people especially if you have a health problem. View of the river, and canyon are fabulous. Nature at its finest. Deer seem to be everywhere in the park.

“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We have been here 2x and find it enjoyable, perhaps a bit overrated. The falls are pretty but not spectacular. The canyon is impressive, especially in the fall. there is no entrance fee and the trail is well maintained. there is wheelchair access to an overlook 1/4 of the way down to the falls, but wheelchair access ends there.
