Piatt Park

Piatt Park is a secluded gem full of old growth Appalachian hardwoods and majestic hemlocks. There is a fantastic gorge/cave area that you can scramble through and a handful of beautiful waterfalls. The 119 Acre park includes hiking through a fantastic cave/gorge area, waterfalls, RV spots, camping, picnic shelter and a playground. The park’s unique landscape and natural rock formations were caused by a combination of weathering, and natural erosion over a very long time. Erosion is still taking place today as water moves through the park every spring.
