Admittance charge was $2 per person. Enjoy a very picturesque drive through the park. To get to the waterfall follow the road all the way straight through the park. You will get on a one way loop - there are no signs on the road...More

Take a little time to get away from it all. This park is excellent for hiking and mountain biking and there is a waterfall to boot! What a lovely place to spend a few hours or a weekend.

We has some time to kill so we went to the park. The $4 per person admission was well worth it. We hike several trails, including the waterfall trail. You can swim or fish in the lake and there is plenty of camping available.

Went for a walk in memory of our daughter who died in an automobile accident in March of this year. This was Taylor’s favorite place to visit!

Went to the falls.....was beautiful and a perfect day. The water was warm and we swam in lots of the openings. It’s quite a hike to the falls but well worth it.
