Clifty Falls State Park has many trails. The one to the main waterfall is easily accessible. The nature center is fun for kids & adults alike. The Inn has a nice restaurant & the biscuits & apple butter are delicious

Enjoyed the rugedness of the trails complete with the scenery of the creeks, falls and tunnel. Fairly well marked and well kept. We stayed at the Inn so cant review the campgrounds. Summer month leaves help disguise the bigger than life power plant nearby. Enjoy

This park has plenty of trails, s lodge, and a restaurant. There are shelter houses and charcoal grills for outings. Pay the$7.00 ($9.00 out of state) fee and enjoy a day or two.

Clifty Falls has everything you want in a state park. The waterfalls are beautiful! This state park has quite a few hiking/walking trails. Be careful though, some of the trails are for expert hikers. We learned the hard way!

There is a wonderful lodge in the park with indoor pool and a full service restaurant. The newer section sits on a bluff with a fantastic view of the Ohio river and the town of Madison below.

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.
