There is no entrance fee for this national park. The road into the visitor's center is somewhat narrow & curvy - we probably felt this more as we were driving a U-haul. We were worried about parking with our large vehicle, but there is RV...More

Having lived in Ohio my entire life, I thought it was time to check out Ohio’s only National Park. I think this is one of the newer National Parks in the country as well having been declared as one in 2000. The park is beautiful,...More

We made camping reservations for two nights; my boyfriend and his son went the first night and I joined them the morning of the second day. First the good: the falls and trails were beautiful, and would be easily accessible for most people. The trails...More

We visited 3 spots: Bridal Veils Falls, Brandywine Falls and The Ledges. All were very easy walks and easy to get to once you found them. Signage in the park could be improved. We had to use our GPS! Nice place for a picnic.

It was rainy during our visit and we weren’t prepared for the weather, so we just made a quick hike to Brandywine Falls. Beautiful! I recommend stopping at the Boston Store Visitors Center to watch the video about the history of the park.

In addition to treating me to amazing landscapes while I'm just out to run some errands, my boyfriend and I frequent the park for weekend bike rides and it's the most beautiful place I've seen in awhile.

We took the train from Independence to Akron. Nice, clean and comfortable. The car conductors were very knowledgeable and nice to talk with. Once in Akron, there was a free shuttle bus that took you to several drop-off locations. You had plenty of time to...More

Yes. U need to get a permit form the rangers office. One word of warning- Cuyahoga valley is infested with ticks!!! be very careful where you decide to camp and make sure you talk to the rangers first.
