Stokes State Forest 'Buttermilk Falls' © Kathy Gray
This beautiful waterfall has a trail of steps that are nearby that take you right to the top. Best time to visit these falls is right after a big rain storm when the water is running high.

February 5 Memories by Fred Ulrich
Camped in the cabins in 1940 and 1941 with Boy Scout Troop 19 (I think), Hackensack, New jersey. Winter and summer. Assisted CCCs put out a forest fire in 1941. Pulled 4-6 sleds behind a 1938 Ford wood side station wagon in couple feet of snow. Wonderful place.
October 20 Wonderful place for scenery/wildlife by Dawn J. Benko
This is an absolutely beautiful park with amazing scenery and wildlife. However, Buttermilk Falls, several photos of which are posted on this page, is actually in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area not Stokes State Forest.

February 23 Great family fun! by Mom of JLHx2
My parents took my brother and I here as kids every summer and I have incredible memories that are very special of Stokes and my family. Last summer my parents took me back, 30 years later, with my children. It was wonderful going back showing my children where we played and explored as kids their age. We had so much fun we are going back this summer. Incredible bonding, lasting memories and stories we will tell and laugh about forever. Just thinking of it makes me smile.

I have been camping in Stokes for over 40 years. The forest is intact. The state budget is not. Please write to encourage the powers that be to keep our parks and forests alive. We have only one earth!

July 14 Best time Ever by Vanessa R.
When I was a child my parents brought me and my lil sis there every year. We would always look forward to going there. AS a grown up I take my son and husband there now and make new memories. It is very relaxing and peaceful. Wonderful place to bring the family.
May 22 WONDERFUL PARK! by Kathy G.
Stokes State Park is a wonderful Park to visit. It has something for everyone. Great fishing, hiking (easy - difficult), Sunrise Mountain, Tilamns Ravine, Buttermilk Falls, wildlike, great camping & beautiful scenery. We have gone every single year for the past 25 years. My parents took me when I was a kid and now I bring my own kids. You will not be disappointed.
