REVIEWS OF Blackwater Falls State Park IN West Virginia

Jonah Baksa

Great state park in West Virginia, definitely look into this when you are with family. Lots of attractions, good food too. Nice trading post store. Lovely view of the waterfall. Would definitely come back.

Greg Strader

One of my favorite State Parks!!! The waterfall is beautiful. I personally recommend going when the water is high, as it is easiest to see the black coloration in the water then. Be prepared for a mild hike. Walking down the stairs to the falls is easy, but hiking back up the countless stairs can be a chore for some.

makaila todd

Worth the drive! Awesome view, lots of sights to see.

Erik Gavin

Great place to go for short hikes or long ones. Plenty of little restraunts and stores to go through. Many scenic overlooks.

Tracy Symanzik

Beautiful waterfall and many activities you can do around the park.

Delton Liles

Wonderful attraction!! God's Earth is a beauty to behold, and this spot is nothing short of a beautiful sight!!

Ap Frot

Was just looking for a place to spend one night on a road trip. Decided to stay two nights after seeing the pictures. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Beautiful campground and park. The office where you check in at has many camping supplies to cover things you may have forgotten and at a great price. Friendly helpful rangers all around. Tons of hiking trails and scenic spots. Nearby town of Davis is close and great. If you go there I highly recommend the Big Belly Deli. You can not come here and have a bad time. One heads up, if you're hiking wear water resistance shoes. Trails can be damp.

Seraphim Dawn

Very easy hike to the first view of the falls. It is only about half a mile and not steep. While there is a boardwalk to the falls overlook, some of it is stairs. The far side, which is easily accessible by a small parking lot ought to be wheelchair accessible. The Gift shop, bathrooms, and concessions stand are clean and well stocked. This is a great stop on a family trip and an iconic veiw of Appalachia.

Lisa Ahern

So beautiful, some wheelchair access, Great views. The falls are Gorgeous.They have tent camping and cabins. Call for reservations, lots of picnic tables. Nice place to spend the day.

Noah Hope

easy on the knees, very beautiful. great for photo ops!

Blackwater falls is different every time we visit. Some of the most beautiful scenery in the State. Our family always enjoys going back to visit.

Tricia Hill

There are easy paths and hard paths. But every path will take you to a beautiful spot.

Anonymous Person

Beautiful falls that are completely free of charge to view (including parking). It’s a short hike down a paved trail that leads to a large stair case that takes you the rest of the way down to the falls with multiple viewing decks. Other than the falls there isn’t much else here so you can easily be in an out within an hour less it’s really busy. Draws in a steady flow of traffic coming and going so getting a parking spot is not an issue. Enjoy!!

Hillbilly FamLife

Gorgeous place to visit. The falls are stunning no matter what time of year you visit!

Addy Alago

This is why we pay taxes. To enjoy gorgeous, safe and well maintained parks. The falls are beautiful. Nice little hiking trails that are not too difficult. Very pretty area.

Jenna Partin

Nature in it's raw and powerful beauty... the sound of rushing water and rustling leaves... the chilled breeze and mist amongst the songs of birds.

Bob Zupanek

Use to come here in the winter to cross country ski b4 my wife's stroke. First time back in 7 years and first time in the summer

wvlibrarydude

Beautiful scenery, flora, and fauna. Trail system is good for levels of hiking ability. Activities available year round with Nordic sledding, cross country skiing and snow shoeing.

Michael Harkness

Beautiful and stunning. Staff at the gift shop are friendly and the park is always well maintained.

Chuck L

Simply amazing. Gorgeous. Stunning. Incredible waterfalls.

Donna Lane

A beautiful campground, have been camping here for years.

Dave Lucas

Beautiful place !! I will go back I had a great time

Jaya Weaver

We stopped at Blackwater Falls during a drought. I had never seen such a small amount of water going over the falls. It is a truly beautiful area.

Jacob Stalnaker

What a gem of nature it is truly a scenic and lovely waterfall and the only down side I can think of it has quite a bit of stairs to the best viewing deck, but nothing most cant handle and it has wheel chair accessibility. It is all well worth the wonderful photos and memories it will provide and all with free entry to the area and it has information about it and the surrounding area

A.G. Genma1217

Love the natural beauty that this park and adjoining areas have to offer. Great for visits during Summers and early springs. Trails are well maintained. Blackwater falls is a must visit attraction in this park. It's close to the actual Town of Davis, a five minute drive,where you can stop at Hellbender Burritos for a quick bite right after.

Drema Lanham

Such a beautiful place to visit. I never get tired of seeing the beautiful falls. Love in the winter when they r frozen.

Jonah Baksa

Great state park in West Virginia, definitely look into this when you are with family. Lots of attractions, good food too. Nice trading post store. Lovely view of the waterfall. Would definitely come back.

Nicole Reid

Beautiful spot, great gift shop with lots of gemstones and rocks for purchase if you're into that. Small snack stand and picnic tables available. The route to the falls is about 200 steps so it seemed a little much for the elder crowd. However, if you go out of the entrance almost immediately before is an opening that is paved and can let you walk down and skip about half the steps. I'm not sure if the waterfall is always at this level, we were there during major flash flooding but if you're traveling through it's a beautiful place for a stop.

Wesley Puffenbarger

Very peaceful. Love the flowing water over the falls. Enjoys the trip here with Pendleton county 4-H. The gift shop is nice. The good at the snack bar is great. Had a pizza and and was delicious. Highly recomend this for a family trip. Also check out the lake where you can paddle boat and paddle board. You can also check out Canaan valley.

bonita lastner

But this is a must see if you are visiting West Virginia, absolutely stunning that's all I can say

Kaysi

This place was amazing!! The waterfalls were beautiful. It was magical. There were a lot of stairs, but it was wayyy worth it.

John Shaw

Quiet after labor day. Deer come out to graze. Pretty water fall.

donald wilkinson

So many things to do here so you may want to spend a couple days here exploring. The lodge is nice and has beautiful views and is very accommodating. You have the Elakala Trail next to the lodge with a few nice waterfalls. Lindy Point Observation Deck is just down the road to the West, good place to watch the sun set. Blackwater Falls is on the way to the lodge, with a couple good spots to view the falls. And Pendleton Overlook gives a spectacular view of the Gorge. And the Nature Center is over by Pendleton Lake, and I believe you can rent kayaks there in the summer months. And lots of trails to explore here in the park. Well worth your weekend!

Sandy Trump

Excellent state park. Trails are very well marked

Nancy Martin

One of my favorite places! The falls are beautiful and worth all the steps down to see them, the trails are scenic and well marked. No matter the season, I'm never disappointed!

monica hammaker

The place is beautiful, not over populated, they have trails that work for beginners and more intermediate trails. The main waterfall didnt make much of an impression on me so I knocked a star off but the park is definitely worth visiting. The walkway leading down the main waterfall was constructed and mai stained VERY well.

Tracy Xu

Nice place to visit during the short vacation. The cabin there were fabulous!

Michael Loblanco

Great time, clean park, trails are clean! Lodge is cheap and staff is friendly.

Jason.N Alyssa.

Great beautiful place took a motorcycle run here with some friends great place

Greg Strader

Bruce Fritch

Great view of the falls, but 214 steps limits the less abled walkers.

Josh Hanson

Nice park and well kept! Be ready for stairs but also know, some can be avoided if you walk the long way... we will be back!

Maurielle C

Beautiful. Breathtaking. I’ve gone on many mountain trips, but this one was a pretty easy hike up to the waterfall. And the waterfall did not disappoint, unlike some others in VA. It’s a fun trip with family and friends just for about an hour and a half if you take your time. It’s a nice scenery and has a good platform to stand on.

Senthil Pillai

What a beautiful place to be.. got the best views, hikes, falls. We had a great time going to Lindy point. It is advisable to save the map offline or note down, as GPS and cellphone network are not the best out there.

bonnie sparmblack

My husband and I stayed at the lodge at Blackwater Falls last month. It was our third visit there. It’s our go-to place for relaxing, hiking and generally enjoying nature. The scenery is breathtaking. The hiking trails are well marked and maintained. At the end of the day meals at the lodge are delicious. Can’t recommend it enough.

Kristina Virostkova

Lovely place with nice bike trails. Plantain trail is difficult and full rocks and. I really enjoyed this trail. Blue trails are easier but also nice. Plenty roes everywhere!

Ed & Sherry Peterson

What a great place to enjoy nature's own water show. Moderate to difficult trails are to be found here so wear sturdy shoes. There is a Gentle trail that overlooks the top of the falls off of the road that leads to the lodge. This is wheelchair friendly and is quite short. A great place to view the falls and relax.

Lori Johnson

You can Quickly get to the falls via Steps, or Walk way, Plenty of Trails if your up to walking, gift shop, and Finger food Also Available if you Need a Snack...Worth the trip!

Priya Tyagi

Scenic and gorgeous. It was an amazing place and the beauty of it was just breathtaking. I will definitely visit this state park again. It has to be one of the best state parks in West Virginia.

Walter Pineda

One of my favorites, Lindy Point Overlook.

Rob Boucek

It's a nice place for a short visit. We haven't had much rain since July so the falls were a little underwhelming. This time of year there is a narrow amount of time when the sun lights up the falls directly. These pics were taken around 12:00.

David Smith

Beautiful scenery. Short walk with lots of stairs. Be sure to stop on both sides of the falls. The overlooks provide very different perspectives.

Dawne Davis

Pretty park..could use more signage!!

TEDDY SINGLETON

One of the best waterfall I have ever seen..easy to get to

bonnie sparmblack

The scenery is breathtaking. The hiking trails are well marked and maintained. At the end of the day meals at the lodge are delicious. Can’t recommend it enough.

Andrew Martin

We had great weather, so that was really helpful. Wonderful falls, easy to get around, beautiful vistas, and the food at the Blackwater Falls Smoke House was delicious! Highly recommended!

Mike Cusick

Visited this spot many times, quick 1 - 1 1/2 hour drive from frostburg and points west in MD. Love it there, all seasons. Definitely check it out in a really cold winter, it completely freezes. Cant beat the view and the raw power felt as the river tumbles over the edge of falls. Must see if you're traveling down 219. Enjoy.

Mani Aysola

Visited this park with my family on a Memorial day weekend. We have this water falls. It is boarded all the way to the waterfalls. The park is very picturesque and the waterfalls itself is very nice.

Kristina Virostkova

Lovely place with nice bike trails. Plantain trail is difficult and full rocks and. I really enjoyed this trail. Blue trails are easier but also nice. Plenty roes everywhere!

Jessica Jordan

Just a short walk and you’ll be at one of the most beautiful falls! My family and I traveled with three dogs in late August to this state park. Few people and less foot traffic allowed us to enjoy the site and take incredible photos. 10/10 recommend. This is not much of a hike. The path is well maintained and stairs/deck have been built to allow for easy access to the water.

James Wo

Very nice waterfall, it's an easy walk down, but it can get strenuous going back up. Very scenic though

Aaron Linch

Beautiful State Park with an overlook platform o erlooking the falls, a Co ference center and more.

AllAnon Akchbar

Absolutely gorgeous! Nature all over. Not for a city dweller, or beach bum. But a naturalist would feel right at home here. Many trails to conquer and overcome and many sights to see.

Tommy Fisher

Love it every time we go to the falls. Rained every day but the people and park are great

John Belt

Absolutely gorgeous scenery. Upper observation area was a very short, level trail. Lower observation by the Trading Post could be a challenge for some because of 200 step stairs but very worthwhile. The Trading Post had a nice variety of area themed items.

Jacob Moore

Came here to go camping and hike the trails and plan on coming back next year. It is amazing. Cant recommend enough.

Colleen Bush

Beautiful hiking, the Park is clean and well cared for. Staff and Park Rangers are so nice. Loved my stay. Com by back in the Fall.

Margie Halfhill

Blackwater Falls was beautiful today and we really enjoyed the falls trail here by the lodge and seeing several deer in the park.

Samuel Brooks

Very beautiful. Fun driving through the mountains as well

TJ Vlogs

Beautiful scenes peaceful settings all around great place

Dave G

Awesome park. Beautiful campground, a great place to set up camp and explore the area.

Ginny Long

Stunning view, especially in winter! The roar of the falls could be heard from the parking lot. A short walk along guided paths to view the waterfall. Many wooden stairs (which turned to ice) in snowy weather so just use a bit of caution while walking.

Joseph Davis

Beautiful and peaceful, no large crowds and you can enjoy the mountain scenery totally at the pace you wish.

Brittany Gaines

Easy hikes to beautiful views. You can see the waterfall from two sides. One offers a level view and the other from the bottom of the waterfall.

George Amvrosiadis

Amazing views. Wish it was handicap accessible all the way until the falls overlook.

Ed & Sherry Peterson

What a great place to enjoy nature's own water show. Moderate to difficult trails are to be found here so wear sturdy shoes. There is a Gentle trail that overlooks the top of the falls off of the road that leads to the lodge. This is wheelchair friendly and is quite short. A great place to view the falls and relax.

Damian Powell

Beautiful State Park was full of wonderful views . The trails were fun to walk. My eight month pregnant wife had fun on the trails too. So fun for the whole family.

Sheila Lo Monaco

Beautiful place. I love all the sites. Davis has great coffee shop, tacos and a fantastic brewery. The cabin was beautiful well kept in a great spot. The check in was fast. Once we decide stay longer they were able to find a another cabin with the same amenities to prolong our stay. Great trails and water falls . Amazing

Desiree Rudolph

The falls are very pretty, and easy to get to. The gift shop was very nice as well, lots of souvenir knick knacks and gemstones. There is a snack shop right next door if you’re hungry. The food was just okay, enough to to tide us over until we got back to our cabin. There are plenty of walking trail, but I thought the map of the area was a little confusing. Maybe use a trail app on your phone, but have it downloaded because cell service is iffy.

Stone MN

It's absolutely amazing, very beautiful views, and has many different levels of hikes.

Mike Riley

Enjoyed our stay at Blackwater. The rangers were friendly and helpful, and the campground was in nice shape. The sites were a good size too. Nearby is a small lake, with fishing, paddle boat rentals, frisbee golf, basketball, a playground and more. Town is close, and is a great spot to grab pizza or ice cream, pick up supplies or just do some shopping. The only downside to the campground was the bath house. It was kept stocked and clean, but none of the stall doors I checked worked correctly. Either they didn't shut at all, or you couldn't lock them because the lock missed the hole by inches. I'm sure they don't have the cash to renovate (which is ok, the old setup is kind of charming in its own way), but some of the issues they could fix in under an hour with a drill and a screwdriver. My wife said the ladies room was the same. I only briefly visited the lodge to get a fishing permit, so I can't speak to it much but it seemed nice. All told we very much enjoyed the trip and the campground, but you might end up getting to know a few of your fellow campers better than you'd like :).

Chuck Long

Beautiful place. A lot of steps. Not really wheelchair accessible. Please, do yourself a favor and see this beautiful waterfall.

April Adams

Beautiful. Clean. Very nice place to see the beauty of WV. Nice hiking trails.

Connie Kennedy

Absolutely beautiful. Can get close to falls for beautiful pictures

JOYCE NEWELL

Great view from well built walkway. A ramp makes top view avaulable and a handicapped entrance is across the canyon. Drinks are about 5$.

Maria Bowles

It’s such a beautiful park with lots to offer and stunning views of the falls.

Mark Reuschle

Beautiful park, very well maintained and everyone working there were helpful and friendly.

Sheila Lo Monaco

Beautiful place. I love all the sites. Davis has great coffee shop, tacos and a fantastic brewery. The cabin was beautiful well kept in a great spot. The check in was fast. Once we decide stay longer they were able to find a another cabin with the same amenities to prolong our stay. Great trails and water falls . Amazing

Swati Babaria

Beautiful park. Very easy to get to the waterfall. Lot of lodging and camping options within the park. There was hardly any crowed when we went to see the waterfall and we enjoyed our time there.

Nick Harrison

We love it here try to visit multiple times a year!! Check it out in all the seasons! Very beautiful when there is snow on the ground!!

Ann Ball

Absolutely beautiful! We had a wonderful time with our kids and grandchildren.

andrew hilner

Gorgeous, nice paths with secluded lakes and ponds my lady and i love going to. Paths and trails are well maintained, one of the best views i have seen around here is from the scenic overlook.

April Kudiak

The falls are breath taking and picnic areas plentiful.

Mike Orndoff

Blackwater Falls is awesome. Beautiful drive to the state park, nice views and they have a Trading Post & a place to grab a bite to eat. Definitely worth it.

David Ostermeyer

Beautiful falls. Well maintained...to well. Trails seem to be mostly blacktop.

Chuck Conley

Beautiful place! Free entry! Has great trails and a nice store

A must see on your trip through West Virginia. Tons and tons of things to see and do. Well kept, clean, and accommodating. The view of the falls is breathtaking. Will remember and love to come back.

Maranda Powell

Very beautiful place, there was also a rainbow when I went

Bruce D

West Virginia is unusually blessed with numerous state parks, and scenic sights and activities abound. Blackwater Falls is a good example of one. Camping, hiking, sights, and gorgeous country are in ample supply there!

Alford Duncan

The views were great and the lodge restaurant amazing

Bethany Sprecher

Beautiful place to visit. Took a road trip Saturday October 19th. Just beautiful. the colors, views & sounds.

Aswini Thulasiram

There is a beautiful lodge at the top of the mountain to stay with restaurant inside. Great location to visit during summer!. Lots of option for hiking. Stunning blackwater falls. Driving to the park is scenic along the river!

samara fowler

The four bedroom cabins are an absolutely wonderful place to spend time with loved ones or to simply be alone. With amenities like a washer/dryer, two BIG bathrooms, front and back porches, full kitchen, and beautiful gas stove, it is easy to settle in quickly. The indoor pool and hot tub at the lodge was awesome!! The kids had a great time on the sled run and I am so happy it snowed!!

Kevin Meadows

Beautiful waterfalls and a very easy walk down. A good way to wrap up a day.

Kerri Burrows

It's a very peaceful place to visit. Go hiking, picnic, bird and other animal watching eth your family. There's camping close by. Amazing scenery and views. It's best pretty during all seasons. If you're in decent shape, hike to the falls during winter. The over spray forms beautiful ice sculptures on the rocks, trees and etc. The trees covered in snow are breathtaking. And there's not as many guests so it's really quiet. I could sit there for hours. It's very calming. During the summer my kids love to pack a picnic lunch and hike all the trails then sit down together and eat and talk about everything we saw. And there's other state parks really close to go visit. You can make a day of it with your family.

Sarah Gower

One of my favorite places in the world! Stunning outdoors experience. The falls are beautiful. There are multiple scenic points and overlooks. This is what brought us to Davis from North Central PA and now we're are in love with this whole area

Lynn Zastrow

If your close to Thomas West Virginia make sure you stop at Blackwater Falls State Park its tremendous!!!!

Jonathan Villers

The disc golf course is wonderful! It is helpful to play with at least a partner to keep an eye on where the discs land! Fun time had by all!

Daniel Wade

Absolutely gorgeous! It's an easy and quick hike down to the falls, just about anyone should be able to manage it with little to no problems.

Jerry Grimes

Probably one of the best parks I've ever been to and I have been to quite a few. Awesome views. Great camping sites. I would love to come sight seeing here again the next time I am in West Virginia.

Barry Murphy

This is one of the best most beautiful places on Earth. Go for the food and the vistas. You must check out Lindy point

David Petty

Everything about this park. The views, the wildlife, and every other beautiful trail, and creature you come across. Beautiful Park.

Roshan Thomas

Visit this place during fall and that would be an unforgettable experience of your life.

Matthew Merranko

We got married here. Excellent place to hike, bike, walk, camp, glanp, and very dog friendly! Great views.

Hillbillyjeeper WV

The falls are amazing after there's been some rainfall but there's more than just the falls to see. When visiting be sure to do some hiking on the trails there, you won't be disappointed.

Chris Pugh

Pretty scenery and nice wood deck path down to the falls.

Karma Girl

Almost Heaven!! Loved West Virginia and Blackwater Falls!! So Beautiful! We were there for Astronomy Weekend. We had a great time! Will definitely be back!!

Daniel Miller

Had a fantastic three night stay here in the cabins. Falls are beautiful and we had a fantastic day hike

Larry Hiebert

Beautiful falls. Hubby took pics and passed them out to family and friends to come on down.

Barb Higgins

Probably the best park we've ever visited! We've been coming to Blackwater Falls for years and it never gets old. The falls are gorgeous but so are the overlooks - we love Pendleton Point - and the numerous trails. Elakala Falls trail, starting near the lodge parking lot, is a real family favorite as is the Balanced Rock trail. Over the years, our family has stayed at the Lodge, in the Cabins (on the lodge side of the canyon), and in the campground and we love them all - each has something unique to offer. We make the 4.5 hour trip from home at least once a year but usually more - that's how much we love it! Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring - Blackwater Falls is awesome no matter the season!

John Richards

The park is beautiful! The hike down to the falls is very easy for all ages. There are lots of steps, but they're not steep at all. You can also elect to take a paved portion down part of the way. You'll find ample parking there as well as restrooms, a small snack shop, and a gift shop.

Chida Setty

The drive is beautiful, it is not just the destination. Black water falls is the final reward.

Mary Peeler

Love, love, love the natural beauty. I'd love to return. Sightseeing and hiking are available.

Lisa S. Estes

We have frequented this beautiful place for 10 years and counting!!

Jeannette Jenkins

Beautiful vacation spot year round for the lover of woods, hiking, scenic beauty, and wildlife and wildflowers.

Jordan Cv

A must go if you are visiting the area. Visit the waterfall. They have plenty of short walks to overlooks for a great experience.

William Blue

My son and daughter-in-law were there a couple days ago they loved it.

Tracy Price

It was beautiful. It is a pretty good walk up the steps but well wort it.

Jedidiah Walkup

Excellent place to visit. Great views and picnic areas. The Lake area is great for gatherings and for picnicking.

Chris Hoover

Loved the view of the falls but the walk down and back isn't for someone with any disabilities. Could use a better concession stand also.

Petra Drury

The falls were awesome and easily accessed. I loved the tree roots along the path the most.. They were simply AMAZING

Christy Schreck

Had a wonderful time here. So many things to see. Such a beautiful place .

Tracy Jamison

It was an awesome place to visit will be taking a vacation with the family there again

Iv visited many times as it is my favorite spot in the beautiful place I call home. This has to be on top with all of the fall foliage.

Steven Eldridge

Beautiful scenery with great trails. Wonderful place for hiking and seeing nature's beauty at its best.

Logan Fullerton

One of our favorite places in wv. Go there. You won't be sorry.

Carol Greathouse

Megan Ayers

Stunning! Lots to do around here. They have a wheelchair accessible area to see the falls, concrete, very easy, and short distance. Many great places to see!

Brad J

Nice place with some good scenic overlooks and hiking trails. The lodge is worth a stay if you want a few days.

Barb Higgins

John Muir

Pleasant outdoor environment with easy access to viewing points.

Paula Bryan

This place was amazing and so Beautiful would recomend going there.

Greg Bergman

Very well maintained and clean at all picnic and trailhead areas. Large cabins also clean, comfortable and well stocked with modern kitchens. Beautiful scenery.

Bradley Conn

This place was awesome! Great walking. Easy as well, good for pretty much any age. And absolutely beautiful.

Vikas Seth

Nice waterfall. Although its more yellow than black. Nice small walk from parking to falls.

Mimi

Loved it! Got an amazing view, but I did get a little lost, I thought there'd be a third viewing platform (still not sure if there is) it'd be nice if there was a map.

William Rulo

This park is absolutely beautiful. Cannot wait to come back and explore more.

Rich Goodman

Gorgeous falls, short hike (but a lot of stairs, and not wheelchair accessible).

Timothy Cheah

The gorgeous Blackwater Falls is worth the detour to visit! Even though it is slightly off the main road, the scenery was beautiful. I visited the site in May and the water was gushing down the falls. Keep in mind that there are a set of stairs a couple hundred feet to the waterfall lookout. The path is well kept and the stairs are wide with railings and should be suitable for most folks. You might possibly get misted on at the bottom of the lookout deck if the wind picks up but it’s a great experience. It is also a great place to stop for an afternoon picnic.

Kev N & Friends in Action Mom is watching

Beautiful. Falls were cool. Walk to the Falls is pretty short. Great day full of activities .

Megan Hunt

A must visit if you are in the area! Warning.. there are a lot of steps so if you have little ones prepare to possibly have to carry them a decent amount, but you won't regret it once you get there you will get some amazing photos!

Melissa Morris

I love walking here! It is so beautiful!

Cecile Robertson

Beautiful place to visit, my third October there. Explored the vicinity on this last trip, saw Elakala falls and walked the Balanced Rock Trail. New cabins look wonderful to stay in, definitely interested in coming back for more trails, and visiting nearby Canaan Valley.

Jackie shipley

So much Beauty so easily accessible so many trails to see so many wonderful things tell starting out moderate easy enough for children going to difficult for experienced hikers family-friendly place with so much to do Campground picnic areas Pendleton Lake great for a day trip or a weekend this is a beautiful must see place

I loved the temperatures and the campground. 4 deer came into our camp site every night

Tony Moreno

Absolutely Beautiful well worth the Trip down, no regrets I promise you

Gabrielle Flanary

Such a beautiful place to go. The falls are breathtaking and the surrounding nature is just as beautiful. The gift shop is a bit pricey, but has a lot to choose from.

Ralph Mosser

Loved it need better cell phone coverage in area trying to navigate there was an adventure. Loved the people and lodge was rustic lot of history.
