Kept seeing signs along the highway for the falls. It was a must see for us. The falls were amazing. Lots of parking and reasonable prices. Lots of camping.

We are camping here for 2 days and it is heaven. Campsites a secluded by Forrest, yet it is a big park. The falls are powerful and awesome. Don't miss going here if you are close by

We didn't know what the place was, we just selected attractions in our GPS and let it take us to the falls. We were not disappointed. The roar of the water pounding was unforgettable. It may not be the prettiest water from all the rust,...More

The falls are large and very powerful. You can hear the roar long before you actually stand on the overlook. There are several hiking trails around the park that are well explained on the map of the park. There is a fee of three dollars...More

We were there in the afternoon. If the Webb site does not tell you it is open all of the time to see. It is an open trail system. It s only the ranger office and gift shops that have restrictions on their hours.
