We've seen Bushkill and Dingmans but wanted to try something else. The price is right. The first falls is an easy walk to the top but you really can't see much of the actual falls. It's a little farther to a good view of the...More

Came across the park after visiting Dingmsns Falls. Very well maintained park with hiking and waterfalls. There are a few beautiful cascading Waterfalls. Just loved them all. I am a water person - Waterfalls mesmerize me. Never gets tiring.

It was a very beautiful day trip. There are a few falls in the same park different views. Free entrance, free parking lot and completing out camping weekend at Camp Tyler about 40 minutes from the park but all together very nice experience.

Swimming is prohibited. There are tons of signs. There are no lifeguards and no beaches, lots of slippery rocks. That being said, many people wade and hope no park ranger catches them!

You used to be able to bring your dogs now they are not allowed and there is a sign telling you that. I admit that we often see people with their dogs and if you don't run into a ranger which is a rarity there is no one to... More
