We'll plan more time next trip to explore more trails. Rangers were very friendly and informative. Saw herons, turtles, geese and a peregrine falcon.

This park was the main reason our family vacationed in Ohio this year. The scenery and waterfalls did not disappoint. Beautiful park.

Such a beautiful park, who would have guessed it would be nestled so close to a big city? Gorgeous waterfalls, maintained paths, and friendly rangers. Loved visiting for the first time! Be sure to check out Brandywine falls and Blue Hen falls.

Sorry, I don't know. I live about 15 miles from the park and get there via back roads on my MC. The town of Hudson is a few miles east of the park and would likely have options.

Findley State Park in Wellington was not a bad drive away, check out the reviews on Tripadvisor. We enjoyed our stay there in the fall, but don't know if we would enjoy it as much if it was a crowded summer night.
