Beautiful place
Oct 2021
Some beautiful areas to hike and explore. My only complaint is that sometimes it was hard to find the trailheads. Lots of campgrounds but the map wasn’t always clear on where to find the trails.

Beautiful but Crowded
Jul 2021 • Family
We took our 11 year old son there on a Saturday and it was extremely crowded with almost no where to park. We ended up walking about a mile to get to Little Niagra. In between the walking was also spots to cool off and play around. The scenery is beautiful but if your wanting to take pictures of the beautiful waterfalls, forget about it. Tons of people perched on the falls and in the water. We bought a tube and ended up really enjoying that because you can drift away from the crowds and enjoy the scenery. All in all we enjoyed our time and our 11 year old had a blast. So if you don't mind very large crowds of people and just want to cool off with everyone, then you should be fine. I think I will try to come back in the Fall for trail hiking and picture taking.

Well-maintained park and trails
Jun 2021
We visited the Chickasaw NRA to do some hiking and really enjoyed the nicely-maintained park and trails. We quickly stopped at the Travertine Nature Center to see its displays and get a map from the park ranger. Then we hiked, seeing sites including Buffalo and Antelope springs, and the view from Bromide Hill. There are several places where you can swim in the water, including at Little Niagara - we didn't swim but saw many families enjoying the water on a warm day. There is also a herd of bison in the area - we were told 8 adults, with 4 babies born this year, and we had the good fortune of seeing some of them relaxing near the Bison Viewing Area. This area was a great one to visit and we enjoyed the many different types of sights available in the various corners of the park.

Nicely maintained - worth a stop
Apr 2021
My husband and I sort of stumbled on this place while staying at a hotel nearby. We were pleasantly surprised at how well-maintained the trails were, how easy it was to get around, and how clean all the facilities are. We visited in early spring, and things were just starting to bloom. Beautiful way to spend a morning.

Outdoor fun
Apr 2021 • Couples
We just stumbled onto this place while out for a drive. Really enjoyed it . Didn't see any bison but that was ok. There are lots of places to stop and have a picnic as well as place to play in the water. The visitor center was nice. Lots of trails to hike. You can also camp here. Great place to go and enjoy the day .

Calming Waters and the sound of waterfalls.
Mar 2021
We took time to walk around the paths and tour the area of Little Niagara. The waterfalls were soothing and the water was clear and blue. We didn't swim this time, but we did stick our feet in for a minute. In the summer, we have gotten all the way in before. There are picnic tables and grills to make it a great day with family.

Underrated gem.
Mar 2021
A great, slightly hidden treasure that is overshadowed by nearby and way too touristy Turner Falls. This state park is free, has lovely drives and hiking trails, a great visitor center with a lovely little exhibit on the area, clean restrooms (!) even its own buffalo herd. Did I mention this incredible place is FREE to enter and use? Please consider stopping by the tiny gift shop and supporting the place by buying a t-shirt?
We are planning on going back in the summer and utilizing the campgrounds/cabins. There is so much to see, watch and learn here.
