No water or power, but that didn't bother me. To the best of my knowledge, there are only 5 camp sites. Each by each other, but far enough away with tall grass in between sites to keep each sure sort of secluded. Pack smart and...More

Just passing through and thought we'd stop by park for picnic lunch. Canal Exploration Center was fun with welcoming rangers and lock demonstration. Good experience with stamp for Park Passport too for my daughter! Free entry.

We had sometime before our flight and went to see this park. We are happy we did as it is a great place to bike ride and not overrun with tourists. The waterfalls were worth seeing and the train is a fun thing to do...More

This national park is unusual in that you pass in and out of several communities as you're driving through. (That's why it's free!) There are some nice features - waterfalls, ledges, etc although they didn't seem to be well marked. Be sure to ride the...More

This was a disappointment compared to other National Parks. The tow path is just a gravel walk near where the old canals were. (Lots of trash and debris around too.) We drove through other areas and didn't see much that was exciting. Brandywine Falls was...More

We had time to take a drive through the park from Rockside Drive to Valley View Drive(?) from our nearby hotel and found it to be less than spectacular. Granted we did not have bicycles or hike the trails as many seem to be doing...More

Parking was easy and we took the trail down to the falls and then a 3 mile loop. Gorgeous scenery. We didn't think the trails were marked terribly well but we found our way -- and had to beat a rainstorm to get back to...More

The linear park is a rural retreat within the Cleveland metropolitan area. The centrally located Boston Store visitors center is a very pleasant spot to organize a bike ride or walk along the towpath. The area is a step back to an earlier 20th century...More

We drove all the way from Michigan just to see the falls and it was worth it. Windy roads, good signage thankfully. The visitors center was great, very helpful staff!!! Despite being significantly smaller we all liked the Blue Hen Falls way more than the...More

This park is huge! And it's all gorgeous! Saw a momma deer and what looked like a very recently born baby that still wobbled as it walked. What's great is they have mapped out what hikes are what distance and you can track where you...More

I don't see any campgrounds, and they aren't mentioned in any TripAdvisor reviews. A National Park, 51 square miles, with no campground? Really? Or am I missing something obvious? (The NPS website refers to "Five primitive campsites are available to Towpath Trail users," but five campsites hardly sounds like enough).

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.
