I love to visit Clifty Falls in the spring. The redbud and dogwood trees are beautiful and the moist soil is great for wildflowers. Many trails are rugged, but there are level paths near the Inn.

Super cool park with a few nice hikes and trails. The ranger we talk to was super helpful. It is $9 for an out of state vehicle. Lots of small but nice waterfalls

Not breathtaking water falls, but interesting and worth a day trip. Easy to get to the main attractions if you don't like to hike or have little kids. Lots of nature and some geological information provided. If you are a hiker or avid nature explorer,...More

We loved this park, there are so many trails and beautiful views. We only had about 2 hours to explore but could have easily spent the whole weekend. Trail 2 goes through the actual river bed so good ankle support shoes are pretty important. You...More

I did not enter the campground. Just keep in mind that the trails are fairly rugged with uneven footing and lots of up and down. I hiked trail 10 and saw people there with dogs (on leash of course).

Don’t really know. I suppose the legal age of 18 or 21. I’m sure they don’t want parties. Need to check directly with the lodge.
