The waterfalls were very pretty since there had been a recent rain. If the weather has been dry they have little water. The trails have a lot of stairs and were slippery from the rain so we just did short hikes and drove the longer distances. There are very deep canyons so children should be watched carefully.

We are attempting to visit a State Park every weekend. This weekend it was Clifty Falls. What a great surprise! Trails were all over with parking right next to the start of each, easy access. The pool was fantastic, water slide and walk in wading pool for the youngest and even was enjoyed by us older seniors. We took a... More

Beautiful park, great hiking and picnic areas. Went for one day, could have easily used 2 to see all the trails. Checked out the pool and Inn and are planning to return for an overnight trip.

Very impressed with the quality and condition of the trails and supporting buildings. Roads also appeared to just have been resurfaced.

We needed to visit Madison for a wedding and decided we would like to see some of Clifty Falls and camp if possible. We drove in to find available sites in the non-electric loop and a few that had ample shade and some site division (we are trying to get away a bit...so some separation from our nice neighbors). The... More

Clifty Falls are better after a lot of rain...but still nice to see even with low rain. They just are not the biggest falls. There are other falls in the park too. It is a nice park.

Beautiful state park in southeastern Indiana. There is a small entrance fee to get into the park. Lots of gorgeous trails throughout the park. Some require climbing, others would be accessible for those with mobility issues. Peaceful with the sounds of the waterfalls and chirping birds throughout.

Great for hiking. Very scenic. The falls are beautiful. We didn't have flashlights to explore the tunnel. Planning on returning to continue our hikes.

My husband and I go often. The hiking is great and there are lots of shelter areas. The natural features of the park are 2nd to none in Indiana.

This is a beautiful area. Great camping. Though sites have no water hook up, electric is available and bath houses are near and well maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. Many things to see within the boundaries of the park via several walking trails. Camp grounds are maintained well, and there is a Host there so that 24 hour... More
