I loved the challenging terrain of the trails but it wouldn’t be ideal for those concerned with sure footing. There were a lot minor elevation changes, tree roots and embedded rock to trip on. I liked that it was more challenging that a flat smooth...More

This is a beautiful park with lots of trails and picnic areas. It was very hot and humid, so we really didn't get deep into the park. Just a little exploring being as we are new to the area.

My biggest complaint with this park is that the office was completely on demand during peak season open hours! The trails are completely unmarked and you can get lost very easily. That being said it is a pretty campground, and the scenic trails all the...More

Great state park with hiking trails surrounding the Little Miami River running through the park and Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve...both the State Park and the State Preserve are connected. Beautiful place!

Busy for camping on weekends. Rules on number per site does not seem to be enforced. Limited RV electric sites.

I love to visit Yellow Springs and take the Pup for a great hike at the park. There are so many great places to wander. We love the gorge trail but also explore the other parks and trails. Great free entertainment.

This is such a lovely place. The hiking trails are interesting, especially along the river. There is camping and a playground and picnic shelters. It's more crowded on the weekends but not bad M-F.

The park has facilities for camping, but has nice paths for a hike. It is an outdoor complement to quirky, colorful Yellow Springs, and has the Clifton Gorge on one side and Glen Helen on the other. A trifecta.

My girlfriend and I spent the day in the nearby tourist village of Yellow Springs and in John Bryan State Park. It was wet when we went and some of the rocks on the trail were fairly slippery. Other than that the hike was beautiful...More

I think you can kayak on the Mad River and on the Great Miami. Look up kayak rentals near Dayton.
