Small but nice, this is the ONLY rain-forest in the U.S. Park Service. Recommend booking a tour or cruise excursion since roads to rain-forest are curvy and narrow.

An odd entrance to the park, but roll down your windows to hear all of the sounds of the rainforest. It is a magical place of small, but charming waterfalls, with trails to explore. Bring water and snacks because the restaurant is still closed from...More

The rain forest is open flowers aren’t in bloom and a lot of the hiking trails are closed. You cannot get to the waterfalls and it was a bit disappointing. I would wait a few months until things are up and running. They are actively...More
