My husband and I enjoyed a peaceful walk to the falls. The falls was low but, we joined in as people climbed to the top of the falls. Challenging at first but, a thrill to get to the top. Took a longer trail back that was more challenging because of the rocks. Plan to return with the grandkids!

We visited the Cunningham Falls State Park on a weekday in Mid-September. The park was not crowded and there was no admission charge. We decided to explore several area inside the park. We parked in a small parking lot and decided to hike to the falls. The signs stated that it was a 1/2 mile hike to the falls for a total round trip of one mile. It was a relatively easy hike. (There is a longer option which is a bit more challenging.) Unfortunately, the falls was barely a trickle the day we visited (mid-September.) The walk was beautiful and the area at the base of the falls is well laid out for observation with a large deck area. We plan on returning at a future date when there is a higher flow.

The waterfalls are quick hike from the parking lot and are really nice. The hike has a “challenging” route and a stone path.

This is a great place to hike with the kids. The trail to the fall was not too far for a family to do wearing face masks! The falls though not spectacular are nonetheless pretty and worth the walk. The best part is that you can wear a swim suit and go jump in a lake literally after doing the hike! We brought a picnic lunch and had a wonderful time. There is a cost. For out of staters it is $7 a person, but well worth the cost as there is a life guard on duty at each of the 3 beach areas.

This is one of the best state parks we've camped in yet. Nice beaches, kayaking on lake, hiking trails to their beautiful falls, and the campgrounds are excellent. It's a must go destination!
