Oh my goodness, this place will hold a special place in my heart forever. I went camping here in May 2017. The main waterfall is a short walk from the campsites, and the rim trails are just as fantastic as the gorge trail, though--perfectly shady with great views. There are shady and sunny campsites, and all the campers were peaceful. Ithaca is a short drive (10 miles?) from the park, and there's so much to do and see there (the farmer's market, all the cool stores, museums, etc.). And the whole area is chock full of other waterfalls within an hour's drive; it really is a gem of an area!
Wow wow WOW. There are a few waterfalls here and they're all gorgeous. I went late in the evening close to sunset and there couldn't have been a more perfect time. It was almost completely empty save for the awesome local father and son who noticed I was a tourist and kind of added me to their hike and told me about the area and what to do next, and we had such a wholesome talk about life, too. I'm sure this place is full of magic.
This listing says "free" but it's actually $8 when they're charging, but it's SO worth it. This place is magical. You get to walk under waterfalls and walk on bridges over the gorge and walk through small manmade caves. Definitely be prepared to get soaked, because there can be huge puddles everywhere and the waterfalls really get you quite wet!
This campground is absolutely gorgeous. It's got hiking trails through the woods and a small "beach" where you can find all sorts of hermit crabs, conchs, horseshoe crabs, etc. in the summer. The campgrounds are shady and some of them are right by the bay where you can kayak. Camping is cheap, but you can't get electric with a tent site.
