  • Really pretty. Very doable and no problems with the dog along. Will definitely go back. Personally would prefer to do in cooler temps. 
  • We went for the Discovery Cave Tour and a Ranger-led walk down to Gorman Falls. Both were great fun - well worth the considerable effort. My companion and I are in our 70's, and we needed a bit of hel...  more »
  • Make sure you hike to Gorman Falls! Its so beautiful and the hike to it is very nice as well. Also make sure you play in the little water pools and the river.

  • Have been there several times, plan on going more. A great place for day hiking or camping over night. Cannot think of any negatives. Love it.
  • Nice park in Austin Area. Lot of trees and greenery around the park. It has a small visitor center. You don't get any food except few beverages and hence I would suggest to carry food. There are plenty of streams flowing along the trekking area. Overall a good place for a weekend hangout
  • I love this place, its a small state park with 3 - 4 pools good to go with the family and kids. If you want to do a hike, then its also good. Don't go during peak summer which will dehydrate you to the dead end. They don't have any nearby restaurants / coffee shops which is one more difficult thing, so u need to carry all food. the only available restaurant has a very short time opened.
  • Wonderful, beautiful, amazing park!! The volunteer guide, Bill, that helped us was a great guy! Very helpful and informative. I'm soo happy with our stay! My favorite part was waking up to a group of deer walking through our camp in the early morning hours! This state park is definitely on our favourites list!
  • Excellent park with wide range of landscapes for exploring. On the west end you will find more wildflowers and grassy areas, and moving east the terrain shifts to cliffs, canyons and river. Trails are well marked and maintained, camping areas are clean. Great for overnight backpacking or biking.
