Intriguing because of its narrow gorge which has created many potholes along the bottom of the river.

Beautiful area and definitely a must stop. Waterfalls, gorge and one overlook right off the highway 61 that everyone can view. We hiked to the gorge and there was a waterfall right in the middle of it. Stunning.

First, to echo what some others have said--keep children away from the edges, and don't take chances yourself. The rocks can get slick, and I personally know someone who DIED after slipping into this river. On the other hand, use the man-made overlooks to get...More

Great falls close to the main road with a short walk. Also more falls to see with a slightly longer hike.

We don't usually stay at the same state park twice as we are trying to hit them all but this is a favorite and there is so much to do in that area that we keep coming back.

Quite a few folks were swimming here on the beach and jumping in from the walls of the canyons around the Temperance River. A nice pedestrian bridge offers views of the falls, the river and the beach where the river joins the lake.

We were staying at Lambs Resort and walked over to the overlook by the bridge and viewed the falls. Gorgeous place. We didn't check out the whole park. We did walk down the trail to the lower area and then back up. Nice place.

Unless you are going to camp you do not have to stop at the small ranger station or pay a fee. When you get near the park entrance just park off of US 61. You'll see a lot of cars parked there. It is a...More

Went on a family hike here. Was interesting enough to be a fun but easy hike, for multiple levels. Pretty views of the falls, and then hikes down to the swimming hole. The water was warmer here and kids galore were swimming. My one year...More
