Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
January 1 The Cliffs by Shoot to thrill
If you can find it, it is well off a beaten path. There used to be a bridge near this castle that crossed the river, although it is gone now. There is still however a rock face that was part of the bridge. There just happens to be deep water there, and there are three heights of places to cliff jump. (tallest is 35 ft). Be aware though, you need to use a rope to climb back up. This makes the park amazing.

We were scouting this location for a film, and fell in love with the castle and surrounding area. Stunning views of the river and beautiful trails. Autumn is amazing up there.
May 3 Perfect day that ended in engagement by ctsassypants
We took a steam train to a ferry, the ferry to the base of the castle where we hiked up and picnicked with an amazing view. At the end of the picnic my fiancee proposed. It was an amazing view, an amazing day and I recommend visiting Gillette Castle state park, it's magical.
