“picture perfect!”

Rifle Falls State Park's lush vegetation and waterfalls have attracted photographers and movie crews from around the country who come to capture the area's unique scenery. The falls is a lush area of trees and greenery kept moist by the spray of the cascading triple waterfall. Picnicking near the falls is very popular. Mysterious limestone caves beneath the falls entice spelunkers and other curious visitors to explore their dark depths. Because of its dramatic setting, many weddings and events have been held at Rifle Falls. Rifle Falls State Park has 13 drive-in and seven walk-in campsites that sit to the south along East Rifle Creek. In 1998,  the park underwent a facelift: new pavement, picnic tables, interpretive signs and increased handicapped access. "Roughing it" is a little easier with electricity at many campsites. Walk-in tent sites and sites with electric hookups are also available in the winter.

My boys said it felt to them like we were visiting the Shire from The Hobbit…and they were so right! Walk over the falls, beside the falls AND under the falls!

Nice stop. Falls were better than expected. Falls are located close to the parking area and walk is flat to it. Trail around is up and down but fairly easy. We did with three kids ages 2,4 and 6

Amazing. We absolutely loved our camp here. Tent site 11 was too small so we pitched it on the driveway. The falls and caves are amazing with a nice loop hike
