When the park removed the stairs down to the bottom of the falls for safety reasons the charm and beauty of the visit was eliminated. That is too bad. Someone just lacked the creativity and expertise to keep what could have remained a fun visit...More

Had Thanksgiving dinner at the Inn. The dinner was great w/a large variety from salads to dessert. Spent the weekend camping. The camp ground was peaceful as only a handful of others were camping as well. Great scenery

This is a pretty big state park with good youth camping facilities and also sites with and without electric. Great trails to see the waterfalls as well. Good place to see some nature and still be close to Louisville for day trips.

Good trails with lots of steps and rocks to climb, but the views are worth it. Nice picnic and play areas too!

This was a little disappointing for me. Especially since I saw Niagara Falls the summer before visiting here. I think I still would've been disappointed. Space to park. Lots of trials if you love nature. There was a pretty nice size shelter where we parked....More

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.
