We parked at the Waterfall parking and took a short walk to see the waterfall. We took some pictures and went on our way. I love visiting waterfalls, so this was a nice one to add to the collection.

No erosion control, poor hiking trails, main orange trail to waterfall ended up on a street and then you had to walk across a regular street to reach the waterfall. It’s pretty but doesn’t look like it’s maintained. Never been to a state park where...More

If you don't want to spend too much money and want to have wonder full time with your family then this is the place. Not much crowded Water falls is good and kids can play since the pond is not depth at all

My wife and I enjoyed a nice quiet hike towards the falls. The falls were ok, but for a hiking trail, this was nice for the novice or average hiker. This was also easy access if you live in Middletown.

We've been to a few weddings there. It is excellent for a wedding. The Museum flows nicely for an affair. Very good food.

Website says $9 but every time I went there was no one taking money. That's at the swim and picnic area. Bigger falls no fee. Park and go for it
