We were only there 2 nights and didn't spend much time in the room, The bathroom was very nice and... More

This was a nice surprise for a state park lodge. Very cozy and comfortable. Nice rooms. We ate in the restaurant for breakfast and it was delicious! Decor was rustic and nice. Lovely place! We did a lot of hiking on nice trails. Beautiful place to visit.

This is one of Indiana's finest State Parks. Great for Camping, Great Inn Great dinning. We go there for Bridge Tournaments and just to eat. It is a year around park. It is close to Historic Madison Indiana and to Hanover College.

Wanted river view rooms...but they were booked. Park side rooms are not as bad as I thought they would be. There is a musty smell to the building. Rooms are cute and seem to have been renovated. There were two beds, small microwave and refrigerator, dresser, small table and easy chair. Outside the room there is a table with two... More

Clifty Falls State Park is one of the hidden gems of Indiana, with breath taking views of the Ohio River and Clifty Creek Canyon. The Inn may not be a luxury resort, but it is a pleasant place to stay while you are in the area. The staff is very friendly, the rooms a good sized, and the indoor pool... More

Having grown up in Indiana, this was always a favorite place . . but it's been 40 years since I've been here. It's only gotten more beautiful. This is a great hotel with amazing views of the Ohio River. Glad we came back

We are staying at all the state park inns in Indiana and this was the worst one. We checked in and they told us the inside pool was closed for repairs along with the hot tub. No big deal we came to hike. Tried to turn on our tv to check the local weather and couldn't get anything. Finally went... More
