Dangar Falls Reviews
What a lovely clean spot for all the family. The falls are such a treat to see and the viewing platform is a great spot to see the falls and take photos and there is a great park for the kids to play ... more »
Nice little viewing platform of the falls and a nice little walk down to the bottom of the falls for a swim. BBQ and picnic area good meeting place. We love it there more »
This was my favorite place during my east-coast trip. Definitely worth the detour. Big bonus you can swim in the natural pool and you can even swim behind the waterfall - just awesome.
Beautiful big waterfall that can be viewed from the platform near the parking spot. Parking is RV friendly. There is a large playground and a nice picnic spot with free bbq near the parking also. Its a short walk to the bottom of the falls where you can swim. Walking track is mainly a sturdy wooden platform but little kids will need a little assistance at the bottom of the walking track towards the end of the platform as there is a steep rocky bit to get to the bottom. There are lots of slippery stones in the water so its not so suitable for swimming for little kids but not too bad for adults.
