  • Our whole family loved it! Even our 5 year old. Very neat. We were even able to see a hibernating bat up close!  more »

  • This particular cave tour is hard to find. We discovered online that you have to buy the tickets at the Welcome Center, and then drive to the cave entrance for the tour. The drive was less than 10 min...  more »

  • Beautiful on your own or with a guide! Some of the most beautiful geology in this part of the USA! I recommend the full three bridges trail. It takes you across the park on nice paths where you'll see stuff like this and so much more! My favorite park so far.
  • This is a very beautiful place. The camp grounds are really nice and spacious. The paths are clearly marked. The area is very scenic and good for taking lots of outdoor pictures.
  • The park was beautiful! The buffet was very good. But when we were checking in we would not be able to use our fireplace. They gave us the room half off for the inconvenience. Turns out, it's not broken, it is infested with flies and wasps. We spent the first 30 minutes in our cabin swatting flies and wasps with a broom and broken fly swatter, but didnt manage to kill them all. Other than that, CCSRP is a great place to spend a day or two.
  • Beautiful, well maintained state Park. Went on the three bridges trail. Will definitley return.
  • Fabulous trails! Cool caves. I plan on returning to camp or maybe splurge on a room at the Lodge.
