“Not worth a visit”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It may have been because the water levels were so low with the prolonged drought. But even so, the park is just average.

“enjoyed walking around park”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Lots of families enjoying the falls, photographers, and teenaged daredevils jumping from rock to rock. We had a great time.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Make sure to go up into the observation tower. Wonderful view of the falls. Great photo ops. People were actually fishing here, but did not see them catching anything,

“Not much water, but still pretty.”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The drought affected the water flow, but it let me see the rock formations better. The pink hued Sioux Quartzite is beautiful to see. The walking paths and the ruins of the old mill make for an easy and interesting stroll. The ladies working in the gift shop were very nice. We were glad we went to view the city namesake falls and took some nice photos.
