Clifty Falls State Park, Indiana
Clifty Falls State Park is located near Madison with entrances off state roads 56 and 62. Within Clifty Canyon Nature Preserve the waterfalls change moods with the weather and the seasons our short water shed accounts for rapid changes in the amounts of water coming to our four falls that can range from roaring plunges, delicate bridal-veil mists or gleaming frozen titans. Winter and spring visits reveal them at their best. The rugged splendor of Clifty Canyon offers exciting year-round hiking and scenery. Just be sure to stay on the marked trails for the safest visit and as always in all state parks "take only pictures and leave only footprints!" Our historic Nature Center was once a saddle barn and is still a bridge and as such, it fittingly maintains our link with the past, when the CCC workers built it and so many of our parks structures. Clifty Inn and the Falls Restaurant in addition to the facilities many guest services also offers a breathtaking view of Historical downtown Madison and the Ohio River while the hills of Kentucky form the backdrop for this southern vista.
