  • We had hoped to make it to Cantwell Cliffs, however the traffic was ridiculous getting in. The ranger at that entrance suggested Clear Creek so we have it a shot. We loved the park, very pretty...  more »
  • Beautiful park. Just as beautiful as Hocking Hills, but way less people. Hiked up to the top ridge near the barn 1800’s horse barn. Definitely not for the faint of heart - or really small children...  more »
  • Grew up here. Love it. Nice clean place to hike an Fish,
  • Great park. Trails, fishing, picnic tables, parking lots, (with "port-a-johns") A few miles further a nice shelter house. 50 yards (+/_) away flush toilets. ** No potable water**, although there is a large well stocked gas station / convenient store very close to the park entrance. Park also has a pond, (easy walk), with seating. Roads can be rough in places. Has "Leaning Rock", very large rock that leans well over the road, and "Written Rock", (large natural sandstone "wall") that people have carved names and dates into,(illegal now), from the 1800's to relatively recently. Beautiful drive through park. Park office on left, ( coming from the Rte. 33 end.), just before "Written Rock". The park is clean and well maintained.
