Picturesque limestone bluffs and deep ravines make Whitewater a very popular southeastern state park. The 2,700 acre park is an angler's paradise with brown, brook, and rainbow trout swimming in the spring-fed Whitewater River and Trout Run Creek. Visitors enjoy a sandy swimming beach, a year-round visitor center, easy-to-challenging hiking trails, camping, a group camp, and a modern group center. Come in the winter to enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, and stay at the group center in rustic, winterized cabins. All through the year, discover the natural and human history of the area at one of the many interpretive programs, visitor center exhibits or self-guided trails.

Very impressed! Fun and technical for this newby trail runner. Lots of spectacular views.

Beautiful moderate hike. Great one to bring the dog with for. From the Gift shop go up many steep stairs, but... once you get to the top it's totally worth the view and gets much easier.

The best hike I've done thus far! Loved every peak, loved the lack of mosquitos, loved everything!

Great place to camp. No mosquitos due to the bats that live in the bluffs. Make reservations early to get a good spot.

Great place to camp and hike, call in advance for camping spot!!!

Like the trails, like the hike and scenery. Just beautiful.

You can find all classes of trails here, and the views are great. ,wz warning about the Elba Fire Tower hike is that if you get from the parking area to the tower top you have climbed over 500 feet so if you do it in 10 minutes you have good legs! It is still worth it if taken more slowly! I would allow an hour round trip.
If you want to use the app to record, be sure you download maps as cell service is bad except on ridgetop.In the valleys you may miss spots as even gps satellite coverage may have gaps depending on weather and phone and state of foliage.

This is a beautiful park. Bike it, hike it, drive it and just plain relax. It has been about 5 years but I still remember how much I loved this place. Actually spent about three days here.
