Easy access+ beautiful area+falls= too many people. I like kids and don't mind a crowd, but this was too much. Small area to swim near falls full of rude kids. went around 4 pm thinking that families with little children would be on the way out, and they were but they were quickly replaced by teens. Might try again after school starts. Very, very cold. I am an avid creek swimmer, this was really cold. There are many more trails to explore in the park and near the falls, really nice area will go back.

Its a great place, but wayyyy too many people at the falls. It's the grand central station of waterfalls.
