Great location, hiking
Great park especially if you like to hike. Beautiful waterfalls, tunnels, points of interest. Madison, the town Clifty Falls is in, has tons of Festivals year around, great dining, and cute shops to visit. The campsites are ok. The campground is level all around. The sites are mainly gravel. Watch a few on the outside edge in the spring during heavy rains. There is a pool open in the summer.
