    Great camping inside a city! Aside from the occasional airplane noise, you feel "removed."

    Keep the parks beautiful, pack out more than you pack in. If you blame the park rangers for trash in our state parks, you're doing it wrong!

    All dried up. Pretty scene but not worth it without falls advertised

    Don't forget to check out the ruins by the lower falls, shelter rock, & the old school curling iron in the visitor's center.(women would put it in the fire to get it hot & then curl their hair)

    Te water is super filthy disgusting & smells bad. I'm seriously concerned about my ladybits after getting in.

    Took the kids here, it was sadly overwhelmed with trash. Used diapers, bottles and tp on the ground and in the water. Told a ranger - they DON'T care! Won't be back.

    Best bathroom showers are over at the screened shelter area. No one was camping over there and they have 5 showers per gender. Warm bathrooms, good water pressure.

    Bathroom showers need updating. Water was "warm" & shower head was frozen in place. They were clean though. :-)

    The trail at McKinney Falls State Park is great 3-mile beginners course for mountain bikers. Take a dip in Onion Creek to cool down post-ride.

    Great place for the whole family, including interpretive trails for beginners and intermediate trails for the daily hiker. Check out the lower falls during the summer if the bacteria count is low.
