I think everyone has the same feeling about this place - beautiful and peaceful. It is just a short ride off the main road to Rifle. There are a dozen or so campsites. My in laws used to love coming here because it is an easy drive (no dirt roads) and all the campsites have electricity. So, you are really... More

We had a lovely time at Rifle Falls. The air was crisp, the falls were still a bit frozen still, but beautiful. We went years ago in the Summer when the Falls were flowing. Nice place to picnic and play with the grandbabes. Great scenery and nice hikes. You can climb up to the top of the falls on an... More

We loved wandering around Rifle Falls as the path is not difficult and the waterfalls and small caves. There is also a camping area and a small outdoor theater area that can be rented. My husband thinks it would be a great place for a wedding.

Nice view but the water was very stinky! Easy access from vehicle to see it though. Our family enjoyed it. The caves are right past it on the trails.

Its a bit of a drive once you get off of I-70. However, this place is beautiful. Not only do you have the three waterfalls when you walk up, you can hike around the whole area. There are several caves that you can explore, some that go far enough back you will need a flashlight. There are also some ruins... More

A very nice place to go for people of all ages! You can take a hike, and go above the waterfall, or take a picnic and just sit and enjoy yourself on the picnic tables I go five times a year, it's incredible a very peaceful place to experience we love it have fun.

Great place to camp. Our site was beautiful, right by a creek. The hike to the falls is short but you can hike up and around the falls. Also on the hike you can explore the small caves left by the falls. The camp host was super friendly and helpful! Only draw back was no dump statiob and it was... More

I stayed in campsite #6, and feel it's the prime site of the campground! The river flows around the picnic table and fireplace. This makes it feel a bit more solitary in such a small campground. The walk-in sits are nice, too. The bathrooms need some additional attention as there were a lot of flies. Sites are tidy.
