Yes, there are some beautiful waterfalls in Indiana. We went in the winter, but it’s just as gorgeous as the summer. It’s just different. There were very few people there which made it even more enjoyable.

We did a semi-rugged trail #7 to both waterfalls. Was just right for two senior citizens, three young adults and three small boys. We all loved it. The falls are really nice. We would have done more trails but didn't have the time. Nature center...More

We took our boys for a short weekend in late October in hopes of seeing the fall foliage. Unfortunately for us the colors didn't decide to change until a week or so later. It is a very nice park with well-marked hiking trails (about 10...More

A beautiful afternoon for a short hike to the falls. It was a little late in the season for the leaves. Enjoyed some time visiting the Inn in the park- nice gift shops, great views out the windows, taxidermy animals from the area. Nice fireplaces...More

Originally heard about Clifty for its fall color. There wasn't much color when we were there, but was still pleasantly surprised by this park. There are hiking trails to 4 large (60-80') waterfalls, observation tower, a lengthy tunnel carved through the rock. Don't forget a...More

I was finally (weeks ahead of time) able to secure a room at the inn. We walked a trail the first day (very nice) and shopped in Madison the next day. Lots of history in this area. Fun state park

Sorry, when we were there we stayed at the Inn. I don't have any first-hand knowledge on the camping sites. If you google Clifty Falls there is an option on their website for a map of all of the camping sites - electric... More

Yes Megeara, each site has a small combination grill/fire pit. You can purchase wood at the entrance of the campground where you get the campground site pass.
