Area is very nice and has a lot to offer as far as activities for the whole family. Was unable to cross the creek on trail 10 during the winter, but instead walked trails 2, 3, and 5. Paths are well marked and laid out, the falls and cave are interesting as well. Looking forward to visiting again in warmer weather.

Gem of a place hidden in South-Central Indiana. History, nice trails, and facilities.

Great park. This is a typical Indiana State part. Trails are broken up into 1 to 2 mile trails. Great for kids. Great for pets. I would rate very little of the trails beyond easy. Water falls are a must see. This is a must do for Indiana hikers.

Not a bad hike. Forest full of squirrels. Cave was interesting.

We had a great time here. Trail 5 leads to Wolf Cave, which can be traveled (about 5 minutes of tight quarters, ending in a belly crawl). Trail 3 leads to the Falls (can be viewed from an overlook, or you can get down into the creek and climb around). Trails 7 and 10 offer beautiful creekbed hikes. Some areas are deep enough to "swim" even after days of no rain. Be ready for the 130+ stairs back up and out of the trail. This place is kid friendly (we took our 2 year old), but a carrier helped greatly in rocky, slick, and unstable areas.

The trail was nice and worth the 1.5 hour trip but not remarkable.  Wolf cave, which is along the trail, is pretty cool.  Don't wear stuff into the cave that you don't want to get too dirty like the new shoes I wore because you'll be on your hands and feet at times.

If you have never been to McCormick creek state park.let me say it is breath taking. Well marked trails, an old quarry, high cliffs and a cave to to name a few things. The falls are not huge but are beautiful. The cave was fun to crawl through which the park suggest you try. You have to crawl through part and through the exit at end but is worth it! such a fun place! Will be back I'm sure!

I love McCormick's Creek! So much fun and very different than other hikes in the surrounding area!

There's a lot to explore in this park! The creek, the waterfall, the cave, the quarry...we spent almost an entire day here. We'll definitely be back.
