Rifle Falls State Park is one of Colorado’s hidden gems. The park’s lush vegetation and waterfalls have attracted photographers and movie crews from around the country who come to capture the area’s unique scenery.
The falls is a lush area of trees and greenery kept moist by the spray from 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 other events have been held at Rifle Falls.
The park has 13 drive-in and seven walk-in campsites that sit to the south along East Rifle Creek.
