The trails and scenery are everything you have heard. Breathtaking in every way and great fun to do. The campground is like an "add on" to the experience. The bathrooms were funky at best and my family went 3 days rather than showering in the...More

In past, I have hiked the beautiful trails and visited the inn and stayed at the campground. Today, we just spent the afternoon in the pool, which was nice and clean and very cool.

The family just camped there for 5 days and it was awful. The campground is NOT connected to the park so you have to drive back and forth. The only thing the campground has is a tiny camp store with odd hours. Every time we...More

Coming from the East Coast I was not expecting a park in Indiana to look like this! It's gorgeous and there is something for everyone. You can go for a stroll, or a walk, or a hike, or a climb. You can soak your feet,...More

Underrated and I love it. This park makes you feel like you're in another state. The trails are diverse and there is plenty to experience. Trail 3 is my favorite.

Absolutely gorgeous hiking. Very rugged even for seasoned hikers. Best hiking in indiana so far. Wear waterproof boots and go early before the trails get busy.

Is there a waterfall here? I'm kind of on a quest this summer to visit all the waterfalls in Indiana. Thanks!

How is the fishing?

Response from snafu1952 | Reviewed this property |
First, let me say I could enjoy fishing in a storm drain. Having said that, I have not had a lot of luck at catching anything, but I never let that stop me.
I am wondering how challenging the trails dubbed "rugged" really are. Are they rugged like the bluff trails in Devil's Lake SP in WI, or are they rugged like the river edge trails in Matthiessen SP in IL? I ask because I am going to be visiting the park with my wife and dog, the latter of whom I had to keep a very close eye on along ascent trails at Devil's Lake SP. Thanks in advance.
