Had Thanksgiving dinner at the Inn. The dinner was great w/a large variety from salads to dessert. Spent the weekend camping. The camp ground was peaceful as only a handful of others were camping as well. Great scenery

This is a pretty big state park with good youth camping facilities and also sites with and without electric. Great trails to see the waterfalls as well. Good place to see some nature and still be close to Louisville for day trips.

Good trails with lots of steps and rocks to climb, but the views are worth it. Nice picnic and play areas too!

We had a wonderful time walking to the falls. The views were spectacular! We hope to come back when it is a little warmer but we enjoyed the Fall colors.

If you can be so lucky as to visit shortly after a good rainfall, then the falls are nice, but otherwise just a trickle of water over the cliffs. Also note the trails are changed - so you really cannot get close to the base...More

I'd heard great things about Clifty Falls but I was disapointed. To start with its $9 entrance fee if your out of state. I recommend getting a map before you come as the one they give you is a very poor copy and hard to...More

There are paved roads that you can ride bikes on. The roads are hilly and curvy, so be prepared. You will be sharing the road with vehicles, so be alert. There are no bike only trails.
