This is a great state park to camp at and has great hiking. The water falls are awesome with nice trails and swimming around them. The amenities offer hot showers and nice sized camp sites.

My family enjoyed stayed at the campground in the 300 sites. It was nice - large sites with privacy from your neighbor. The 100 campground is mainly open - it’s the newest of the loops. The 200 campground is partly shaded and has some larger...More

It's a rather long walk to and from the waterfall (coming back is uphill), but it's worth seeing during all seasons! You feel as if you're at a remote river in northern WI or MN, but this state park is less than 1/2 hour from...More

You need a State Park Pass to visit. The parking lot is just off the county road, it's easy to drive past if you aren't paying attention, this is located just down from the main park area. The first part of the trail is unpaved...More

I am new to the area and a photography student. I live in Somerset and could not believe that the falls were so close to my apartment. I consider the falls to be a wonderful place to sit, relax and enjoy the view.

A wonderful way to spend my Mother's Day afternoon. After a spectacular breakfast at Chilkoot Cafe in Stillwater, this activity was beyond our hopes. Neither my daughter or I had been here before, so we were flabbergasted to realize that this park was within driving...More
