We visited this park after looking on our hiking app for a short highly rated hike. If you are in the area this is a great non-strenuous hike with beautiful waterfalls. There are four separate falls you'll see as you hike from the parking lot. The grand fanale is at the end of the trail.

First falls:

Burgess Falls - notice the boat at the bottom of the falls for prospective. Gorgeous!

Are there campsites near there?
We were in Monterey with is about 20 miles away and it's mostly interstate to get to the falls. I believe there is a campground about 10 miles north of the falls, but don't know much about it.

Looks beautiful. We always look for state parks because they tend to be dog friendly. That is we can bring them on the trails with us. I heard a dog barking in the background did you bring your pups?

Yes, our 10 month old chocolate lab.
