Rifle Falls State Park
Rifle Falls State Park is, of course, centered around Rifle Falls, a cascading triple waterfall that drops in front of some hidden limestone caverns. This is a lush and gorgeous area along East Rifle Creek, northeast of the town of Rifle and several miles northeast of Rifle Gap State Park on Highway 325. Because of the beautiful setting, the falls area is a favorite among picnickers and for weddings. There are 13 drive-in and 7 walk-in campsites at Rifle Falls State Park. In 1998, Colorado State Parks refurbished the park facilities and added new pavement, interpretive signs, picnic tables and increased handicapped access.
The daily vehicle use pass costs $7, or you can buy the annual Colorado State Parks pass for $70. A basic campsite runs $18 per day from May 1 to September 30 (and $16 per day from October 1 to April 30) while electrified sites run $22 per day from May 1 to September 30 (and $20 per day from October 1 to April 30). The Event Area (used most often for weddings, not for group picnics) costs $120 per day. The Conference Room in the Visitor Center rents for $100 per day.
