Beautiful waterfalls and unique swimming hole!

We didn’t overnight here. But did go hiking for the day. The gorge trail is very busy but you still can enjoy the beautiful waterfalls along with the gorge formation. We also did the east trail that goes up to the top of the gorge and is also a little further into the woods. It was much quieter up there and the views looking down from there were breathtaking. Be prepared for a lot of steps. It also felt like the hike was “up hill both ways”. Good workout though. The trails were clean and well established. The picnic area is nice. There’s a ton of picnic tables and the area is spread out. Even though it was busy, you didn’t feel on top of anyone. A great park for bird watching. Particularly if you like Blue Jays. I couldn’t get over how many there were!! Next time we want to stay overnight at a site. The camp sites were just off of the different trails and easily accessible.

site 131

We stayed at site 131. It was nice and clean. We were not far from the bathrooms. But this area, all of the camp sites are right in top of each other. It was great for the kids because they were able to find instant friends and ride their bikes around. But if you are looking for a little more space, I would try to find a slightly larger site in the park. The lake is a great place to spend some time. There is a nice big playground. Spot to grab some ice cream/snack. The kayaks and small water craft rentals rare a little pricy. But if you are looking for something to do, it’s not terrible. Overall it is a nice experience.
