The walk to the first waterfall was considered moderate...but there were so many steps to get to the bottom. It was very strenuous to get back up. It was worth it but very tough to get back. I was sad to see trash here and...More

Super impressed by how well the state has kept up this park. Signs are freshly painted and very visible. meadows are under control--lush where possible, mowed where picnics and hiking are ideal. I even noticed that the part near the homestead is handicap-friendly--good on you!...More

This is a great park with much to see and do. The water falls are great and there are so many to see. You may find the remains of a old moonshine still.

Used this campground as a stop over going down I-77. A little off the beaten path, and just a breath of fresh air. Facilities are convenient and staff extremely helpful.

We only live an hour south, but had never been. We took our goat (yes our goat) and hiked down about 1/2 way down to the waterfalls. Well maintained trails, lots of well maintained steps too (with nice stopping / sitting spaces). A bit crowded...More
