  • We have been coming to camp here for three consecutive year now. One of our favourite spots for camping. There are few awesome spots along the river. Great hiking trails and along your hikes you will see a lot of little waterfalls.
  • Breathtaking views....lots of stairs to get down to the lower falls; If you have children with you, the lower falls are less of a hike. Not reccomended for anyone with respiratory issues or not up to endure the physical aspect of the trails- however, It is well worth the effort.
  • The falls are spectacular. The hike is fairly easy but there is some rough and somewhat different terrain. Tons of great Vistas for photo opportunities.
  • Really nice camping ground. A little trail going to the falls which are great, the canyon is also fantastic. Sites were level and well drained. Would go again.
  • Absolutely beautiful! Great hiking. My kids are 5 and 9 and they were able to hike the trails. Beautiful views!
