Madison, Indiana is fortunate to have such a beautiful state park. It is a photographers wonderland! The trails are well maintained for hikers. The inn is nice for those who want to spend a day or two. If visiting southern Indiana, take time to visit Clifty.

Very nice park, got lucky as no one was charging admission when we arrived. Even one a very hot day, the park is cool(ish) inside.

My wife and I just returned form Clifty Falls State Park on our 25th Anniversary trip. We stayed for 3 days. We hiked and camped in the Non-Electric camp ground. It was a very enjoyable stay. My only complaint was the showers were so HOT I could not stand to be in them long enough to get clean. Other than... More

We have visited here often, but this time we took our Ultra Glide. We visited the main falls area and sat in a very nice Overlook area. They offer a pool for the kids and lots of biking and hiking options.

Nice day trip from Cincinnati. The trails are nice, NOT wheelchair accessible. Take a light to explore the tunnel(s); I'm going to make a repeat trip for this purpose. Either pack a lunch or enter from the south gate & grab a sandwich from one of the local places. All I saw on the north gate side were the chain... More

This is not for the out of shape person. I thought I could do the moderate trails but geez I was out of shape! The cool thing about the trail map is that it tells you exactly how long and how rugged the trails are. When we visited it the temps were near 100! This all in all is a... More

Every trail and every view was amazing. The trails are marked and kept very pristine. Although I am not as active as I was a few years ago, I could still go any of the trails. The paths were easily accessible and well groomed. Make it a point to go to the Observation Tower, the views are incredible.

I hiked most park with a friend. The trails are pretty well marked and organized. Even the rugged ones have steps and leveled ground. I enjoyed hiking there. The falls were small and weak, maybe because we're in July. Looking forward to going back there.
