We stopped here and were delighted to observe more than just signs to read about the past. There was a living history experience at the restored fort. The historical museum was well done and easy to tour.

We enjoyed a picnic in the park after our hike up to the high falls, great spot in the sun. It is nice that the facility is still open for the restrooms after the park closes. Great pictures of the falls and kids.

Very easy walk to the falls area. I didn't have time to explore the foot trails but I'm hopeful that you would be able to get closer to the falls or the river. The 2 viewing areas make for great pictures but again I wish I would have been able to get closer somehow.

This is a park you would be proud to stop for a hike and visit to the water falls. It also has clean restroom.

We visited this park at the perfect time of year. Just after the spring snow melt and after a few good rains. The water over the waterfall was thundering! Very impressive! The one mile roundtrip walk to the falls was very do-able. The path is paved and even handicapped accessible. Bring a rain-jacket and if you are a photographer, a few lens cloths! You'll need them!
