“An unexpected free view of the whirlpool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We stopped for a short visit and were surprised at the view we had of the whirlpool from the US side. Since we did not go to the Canadian side, it was the only view we could get of the whirlpool. It was free and a great value.

“Don't Miss This!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Whirlpool State Park and the Devil's Hole Hike is one of the best things to do at the falls. Plan on taking a LOT of water this is a long hike. It is 450 steps atleast to the bottom of the gorge and then there is a lot of climbing over rocks to get to the rapids -but once you get there you will never forget how awesome it is! Well worth the trek!!!

“Spectacular views and all around enjoyable hike.”

Need a good cardio workout? The stairs up and down will definitely give you that. With breathtaking views of the whirlpools and rapids this is a great spot for a picnic.

“So so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Was hoping to hiked down to the standing waves, but trail head was hard to find. The park exhibit was not that great and the room was stuffy. The "park ranger" didn't look like one, we thought he was just a college kid waiting for his friend. He could probably be more helpful. Aside from looking down to the whirlpools, nothing much more there
