The new center is great. Well worth the price. Grounds are nearly kept. Staff was very friendly. My son likes walking out on the fossil beds down by the river. It was hard to get there. So someone that has trouble ambulating would not be able to go down there.

We somehow missed that the interpretive center didn't open until 1 on a Sunday, and we were there at 11:30. We decided to wait. We set out to walk on the Woodland trail and enjoyed a walk through a rocky muddy path across a creek to Cane Run, and then the path seemed to end, so we headed back. So... More

Probably of greater interest to families with children - educational value in historical (Lewis & Clark) and scientific senses. Pretty vistas.

We visited the Falls of the Ohio State Park in early May. It's impressive to look out over the flood wall and see the water surging over the dam. We observed a couple of kayakers taking on the fast current and a fisherman hard at work. The Interpretive Center staff is very friendly. In the middle of the week, the... More

The Interpretive Center is on the Lewis and Clark Trail Eastern Legacy Trail. It has great fossils and Lewis and Clark exhibits. The view of the river is great and the trails along the river lead to other parks and historical sites like Clark's cabin. The multimedia three films on Lewis and Clark were inspiring.

Small but educational center that shows a lot of history related to the Ohio River and the Native Americans that lived in the area

We accidentally found Falls of the Ohio State Park but what a great surprise! It is located on the south side of a small residential area. What a great area for exercise, picnics and a bit of history. Louisville is on the other side of the river.
