Great day trip. The walk to Cucumber Falls was easy. Pretty place to take pictures. Since it was warm out a lot of people we're sunbathing on the rocks. We brought our dogs and they enjoyed it as well. Easy enough for kids to walk around. There's a few restaurants within walking distance.

It's one of the best places to hike during any season! There are so many trails for hiking! The views are beautiful, the falls are amazing and someday I'll go rafting again....did I mention that they have Class 3, 4 and 5 rapids?! You can rents bikes and kayaks. And there are some really great eats and ice cream and beer along Main Street. They have summer festivals and it's super close to Falling Water and Kentuck Knob.

Tons to do. Book any activities in advance as they get super busy during summer. They have a super good frozen yogurt store like Sweet Frog thats cash only. Its always a fun day here, good to bring your dog too :)

Honestly the best camping/hiking/biking/fishing/rafting/exploring State Park that I have ever visited. Highly recommend spending the night and devoting an entire weekend because there are so many things to do here. Great scenic views. Laurel Caverns, Kentuck Knob, and Fort Necessity are a short drive away. I've been here 6-7 weekends and I'm still finding new things to do. Wish I could give it more that 5 stars.

Beautiful park. The waterfall, alone, makes this park worth a visit. A nice easy drive from Pittsburgh, PA this is a must visit. Great fun during the summer when the more adventurous can ride the river through the tube. The scrapes and bruises are well worth it. A great place for a hike.
