Nice cascading falls

These are nice cascading falls. The seasonal farm market was an added bonus, great wood fired pizza and bakery treats in addition to the flower, cheese, veggie & meat vendors.

I didn’t really know what to expect and almost passed up on the opportunity to see the falls. The park is very well laid out and has lots of places to walk and enjoy the views of the falls. The scenery is beautiful and this is a great place to walk and relax.

We had read about these wonderful falls and were disappointed. First of all the signs to get here were very confusing starting from getting off interstate all the way into park. As I got closer to take pictures I noticed unpleasant smell of the water and backed up to avoid spray. The cafe was closed and there was a long... More

It isn't half bad. The grounds are nice and there are some rocks for the kids to play on, a nice (free) observation tower, bathrooms, gift shop, restaurant, etc. Plenty of parking generally too. But sometimes it literally stinks from the water and/or the slaughterhouse down the hill.

Simply loved visiting here.... It is beautiful and full of history. Don't miss out on the observation tower or the cafe. Great spot for a picnic and very family friendly. So glad we took the time to spend overnight in this city

Spent a few hours here whilst in town. Easy to find, free parking. Nice cafe overlooking the falls but plenty of spaces for a picnic. A must if in town for some fresh air, great picture setting and free

Was pretty busy at sunset on a Saturday, but there was plenty of room to park and wander around. There were several viewing points and the sunset an skyline made for some really fantastic pictures to the west.

Beautiful natural falls that draw you back. We made a point of stopping on our way to Yellowstone. Last year on a trip to Mount Rushmore. Free parking. Clean restrooms and a helpful visitors center. Sit on a bench and enjoy, or walk the falls. All good.

We needed a break from driving and my wife had seen this park on a billboard. We were also hungry for lunch and saw they had a niche restaurant ( old generator building on river). The restaurant was closed ( family emergency per sign on door) but the park itself is beautiful. It is well kept and the sound of... More
