I have been here many times since I was very young, and it's still a fun activity when we feel like taking a little ride into PA (from Jersey). I think it is worth the price of admission, and since you set your own pace, you can definitely get your money's worth if you don't rush through. I'd say this... More

I loved the falls and they were beautiful but I thought it was over priced! Getting down there was good but be prepared to take a lot of steps!!

At first when entering the park it seems like a tacky roadside attraction, but once you see the falls you realize this is a natural wonder. This a great place to teach your kids to appreciate the natural world. The trails zigzag around the park for miles, giving view of the fall, river, and valley. Be warned that the trails... More

Took a trip to Bushkill falls and it was incredible. My first impression of the place was the overall size. I expected a small gift shop and a parking lot but there was so much more. Training posts, gift shops, food courts, and so much more. We got there sometime after lunch (1 o'clock or so) and went right to... More

I think Bushkill is something no one should miss if they're in the area. You'd never expect there to be such beautiful falls in the middle of the Poconos, but alas! I vacation in the area every year and always make sure to come here at least once during that time. I love the variety of trails you can take,... More

The falls are touted as the Niagara Falls of Pennsylvania. They are pretty and they are a treat to see. There are several trails available from the start: - a 15 minute trail (green) - a 45 minute trail (yellow) - a 75 minute trail (blue) and an over 2 hour trail (red) We opted for the blue trail because...

The trails here are fun and you get some great views of the falls but it can be very steep at times. Also the heat can be overbearing on some trails because of how intense some of them are.

The trails are wide packed cinder and the many staircases and platforms are well maintained wood with wood handrails. All 3 trails are well marked.There is a fee to enter the trails.
