The views are excellent from the top of the Fall as you can walk on flat rocks on edge of water above the Fall. Then below the Fall, there is a trail that will put you at a photo fantastic spot to get your pictures...More

Beautiful Waterfall. We go there almost every year and it never disappoints. It has sidewalks down to the viewing area, but none up close. If you can go when there is a Moonbow you will be happy you did. The schedule of Moonbow is on...More

The walkways, stairs, viewing areas, and sitting areas are all lovely and as long as you are not in a wheelchair, totally manageable for most fitness levels. I loved the beach at the bottom. Of course the falls themselves were glorious. The only negative thing...More

Moonbow was really cool but just remember it appears white in the warm months unless you have a high speed camera. The rainbow during the day makes up for it though. The resort was rustic yet nice. We didn't stay there but ate brunch there....More

We really enjoyed the park here. The views were great along with the entire experience here. The kids found plenty to keep them occupied with trails, mining and nature.

The park and falls were beautiful. We hiked the eagle falls trail and dog slaughter falls. Loved them both. We stayed 2 nights in the lodge and would not stay there again. I loved the charm but it was dirty. It is in bad need...More

Seriously, The water is flowing way to fast. then soon the waterfalls. Now people do dip their feet in the water, but even that is not advisable.
