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. See Rifle Falls' Camping page for more information.
Keep in mind that Rifle Falls is a VERY busy place during the summer months! Many people want to see the beauty that the park has to offer, however, parking is very limited and we do turn people away when the parking area is full.
