We had a great time here on long hike and time on beach. Clean restrooms and good information stands. Parking was adequate for the busy 4th of July weekend. I plan to come back in the fall.

Easy hike to the falls once in the park. Well maintained trail up the river from one side and an easy climb. Great lookout spots. From HWY 61 you can get out and access the trails and the river. Great spot!!!

Great state park with many waterfalls. We hiked over from Look Out Point and down the trail toward 61. So many waterfalls along the way, and each of them just gorgeous. It's a quick and fun hike.
