  • Stopped by on a road trip. Great views of the river. Lots of history on Lewis and Clark. Many walking trails and a boat launch. Water level was high so could not see Fossil beds. Maybe next trip. Nice...  more »
  • We stopped in here when we had a little spare time to spend in the Louisville area. It is a small state park, and even though the river was so high you couldn't even see the falls (just raging water a...  more »
  • This is a great park on the river. There’s a nice interpretive center and they give tours of the Falls on occasions. There’s quite a bit to explore on your own. Good hiking. Good access to downtown Je...  more »

  • Nice park and facility. Concrete walk down River bank leads to fossiliferous rock formations. There are some piles in the back of the parking lot for kids to dig in but we're rather hard/set up. They were redoing the observation deck when we were there and we learned that last entrance to museum granted at about 4 since it takes about an hour and they close the doors to the facility at 5 (at least on the day we were there). Even closed you can still park and walk to River. Signs say $2 fee for parking.
  • Very nice and clean park. Good educational things to do for children. They have grills poor you can bring your own. Beautiful view of the Ohio River and the Louisville skyline!
  • Beautiful views. Took my 2 year old daughter here and walked around the woods. It's a great place to sight see or just go fishing. There's also the building to see the history of the park.
  • Didn't really dislike it. There just isn't much of the actual falls left. I think I was about 80 years too late. There is an awesome iron bridge though if you care about that kind of stuff, which I do. The shear amount of labor required in those days is just mind boggling
  • Nice park. Easy paths, play ground, over looking river, great view of Louisville. Fossilized corals in a large area. No bathrooms after 5.
