The falls are gorgeous and the hiking is endless. The camp grounds can be loud close to the road. They have added new facilities in the camp ground and the Nature Center and inn are under construction. Plenty of activities for all ages.

Oh, I just remember that I took a picture from our campsite (D194) and shared here on TA. TA doesn't allow posting question with HTML links but you can see the picture under the review of this park.
