Description - Robert H. Treman State Park features a number of fabulous waterfalls including the plunging 115-foot Lucifer Falls. The deep, cool, moist gorges of this park are sided by towering rock cliffs. A trail system winds past a dozen falls close enough for refreshing sprays on hot summer days. There is even an opportunity to swim at the basin pool. Several other park amenities are offered including camping, picnicking, fishing and hunting.

Attractions - Robert H. Treman State Park's most treasured attraction is the Enfield Glen which is a 3-mile gorge of sheer cliff walls with magnificent square corners. There are 3 waterfalls at this site; one plunging 115 feet. Several hiking trails give the visitor an up close experience with the falls. Swimming is permitted in the fallen pool.

Treman State Park include viewing spectacular scenery, several swimming opportunities, cabins, camping, picnic tables and pavilions, recreation programs, showers, hiking trails, fishing waters, hunting grounds and a children's playground.

Report: Very beautiful area and the hiking trails are very picturesque. There are two main trails to take you top the upper part of the park (or lower depending which way you start). Each trail does have a significant hill as part of your trek if you start from the lower park. The natural swimming pool is the second best thing after Lucifer falls but it is the most memorable if you go in for a swim. We went at the end of August and the water temp. was 55 degrees. We camped out there and the campsites are good, there is running water at your site and the shower area is close and relatively clean. Overall I would rate our stay as a 5 out of 5.

Report: This is one of my all time favorite parks. The hiking trails are beautiful and include a few steep climbs and long stairways. I have never camped there so I can't say anything about that. Be sure to check out the natural swimming pool. I really do recommend this park especially if you're looking for a nice hiking trail.
