We arrived on a Sunday for a two night stay and had to pay $9.00 entrance fee after we paid about $30.00 a night on reserveamerica.com. The park is beautiful but were informed that the waterfalls weren't running since they need rain. Our site was level but next to a dumpster. We were also informed that we needed to fill our tanks with water since no water is at our site. The restroom/showers were very outdated, buggy, moldy and dirty. The showers and sinks had a system were you had to continually hit the button for water to come out. Shower had no hot or cold options. We rode our bikes to pool area and sign stated $3.00 per person. This park really nickels and dimes you everywhere. We liked the wildlife and enjoyed the fire flies in the evening. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice and spacious campground. The spots are not too close to each other. In the middle of the electric loop it is very open and there is not a ton of privacy. The perimeter sites are very nice and private. Sites 18-25; 34-35 are shaded and nice. Site 35 might be the most private spot in the park. Site 34 (ours) is also very nice and private. Also the tree on the left side (site #34 - as you look at the site) is now gone. Most of the non-electric (tent area) is mostly very private and may sites are shaded. Some of them are really nice, but would be tight for any trailer of size. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Most of the sites are well spaced and fairly level. Interior roads are asphalt and easy to navigate, with packed gravel pads. Nice fire ring with a very usable grate for cooking. The campground was completely full but still seemed pretty quiet. AT&T signal was weak, but generally usable at our site. Only drawbacks of the park are no camp store and no water hookups. Historic downtown Madison is a short 5 minute drive. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Flat, level sites. Bathrooms in electric were surprisingly clean during Labor Day weekend. Very few water hookups at bath houses and was afraid hose wouldn't reach to fill trailer, but it did. Playgrounds could use a bit more equipment. No camp store, only firewood sales at gate. Best sites are 24, 40, 9, 11. If with a group, consider 54/55, 87/88 or 69/70. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The restrooms and showers in the main electric loop campground are a bit dated, and feel dirty. Since they do not have water at each site, you are almost forced to use the restrooms for at least showers, or you'll be spending a lot of time filling up your freshwater tank. However, if you feel like walking over to the non-electric loop, they have a very new and modern bathhouse there. It seems much cleaner than the bathhouses in the electric loop. The campground is very clean, people are friendly, and they are not obnoxious about patrolling the campground, they are around, but not overbearing. AT&T cell service is pretty good around the park. Don't forget that IN state parks charge $7.00 to enter the park no matter if your camping there or not. The pool cost $3.00 per person and is open from noon to 6:00 daily. No 50 amp service, and if you have a taller rig, be aware that the trees are mature and you may have an issue fitting into some of the sites. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The approach to back-in sites is very narrow, requiring precision backing for longer rigs. The gate staff at the campground were not knowledgeable enough to help with problems. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground is nice, but the lack of water spigots is a bit annoying. The shower houses need to be redone. They have a new, very nice, one in the tent area. The RV area needs the same style. The sites are very large. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Would give this park a "10” if it had water hookups. Also hated paying $7.00 to enter the park, even if you are camping there. Park is meticulously maintained and the sites are huge. We had site 74 which was extremely shaded and we loved it. The whole campground is paved and very flat. Two playgrounds for the kids. I only used the bathhouse once, and used the non-electric loop bathhouse, and it seemed to be brand new. Very nice and clean. Only drawback is the pool which is about a 5 minute drive from the campground, costs an additional $5.00 per person and opens at 11:00 if I remember correctly. Get there early as they only have about 50 chairs around the pool, and they go quick. We will definitely be back. Loved it despite not having water at our site! We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Roomy sites. Liked #'s 98 & 99, large, level pull-throughs with shade. Showers a bit dated, but clean. Awesome hiking with beautiful waterfalls. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here over Memorial Day Weekend and even with the packed park and numerous once-a-year campers the park staff were exceptionally polite and all facilities we used were clean and well cared for. We were unable to get an electric spot due to making late reservations, so I can't comment on the electric hookups, but our spot had no issues at all. The grass had been recently cut, but with a wide space of tall grass between the spots on either side of us, which was nice. There was also plenty of room to setup a 10’x10’ screen room on one side of our camper, and lots of room on the other side to play bocce. The fire pit was in great shape and was not overly filled with trash or ashes from previous campers. The parking areas in the non-electric loop lots were all gravel, but not overly dusty. Ours had a slight slope, especially toward the road end, but this was easily dealt with and the slope did not cause any issues. Most of the other lots in the park appeared to be mostly level to completely level, as far as we could see anyway. There are a few pull-through spots in the non-electric loop, but most were pull in – back out, and at a slight angle to the road, for easier backing in. We did not have an issue with this since our camper is a van conversion and fairly easy to maneuver. The bathrooms were clean and in great condition (we only used the non-electric loop restrooms), had a good number of facilities (showers, toilets, sinks, etc.) so that even with the full park we never had to wait for anything. The park sold wood ($5.50 a bundle), there were numerous locations to get water (but no hook-ups in the non-electric loop), and trash containers were both large and well monitored. The park roads were all well maintained, and the staff were all friendly and courteous at all times and we never saw any trash or litter of any kind on the ground while we were there, in any part of the park. The nature center was small, but well laid out with lots of interesting information to see and decent literature (checklists, info about the area, history, etc.) The trails were all well marked and there was plenty to do in the park. We were there for three nights and were able to hike all the trails, see four waterfalls, play games in camp, and do a lot of wildlife viewing. Many people rode bicycles around the campground area, and a few rode on the park roads. Speed limits were 30 on park roads and 15 in camp. We put this park on our “must visit again” list and would recommend it to anyone. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent experience. Park has a restaurant that is fine. Close to Madison. Also close (30 miles) to Butler State Park, Carrolton, KY. But check for Ohio River bridge (rt 421) outage summer 2012. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Truck Camper.

Excellent park. Very, very large sites. They could easily double the occupancy by splitting the sites but I hope they don't. All sites are mostly level. Nice hiking in the park. Very close to downtown Madison which is a neat river town. This is great park. Only reason I didn't give it a 10 is for no water hook-ups, but there are stil plenty of places to get water. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campground and campsites are RV friendly and generally level. A good mix of sun and shade for sites. Showerhouses are dated but generally maintained well (modern showerhouse is located in primitive section of campground). Beautiful hiking and historic downtown Madison in the area. The drive aisles were freshly paved, so biking in the campground for children was enjoyable. Playground was okay. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very good Autumn camping! Access to Clifty Falls trails is a 5-minute walk. A 20-minute walk gets you to Clifty Falls Inn, which has a restaurant and spectacular views of the Ohio River. Sites are electric only, well spaced, and easy to park. The bathhouse was closed in November, but a potable water faucet is available at the check-in station. Campers were friendly & quiet at nighttime. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice State Park. The road is winding to the campground but we didn't have a problem with a 39' coach and Suburban toad. The park staff is friendly and helpful. The sites don't offer any 50 amp or sewer but it's worth getting by without. It was not too crowded during the week but the weekend was packed. The sites are fairly large though and you are not on top of each other. There were a lot of kids but the noise was not unruly. Easy access to the nice little city of Madison. We will return for sure. We camped at Clifty Falls State Park in a Motorhome.
