Fulmer Falls - Childs Park

Fulmer Falls - Childs Park Rec Area

The site is named for George W. Childs a noted philanthropist, whose widow deeded the land to the commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1912. The George W. Childs Recreation Site is a former start park and now part of the Delaware Water Gap National Park. It is located in Dingmans Ferry in Delaware Township, Pike County, PA. 

A mile or so of trails, boardwalks and steps meander down the gorge to the three main waterfalls: Factory Falls, Fulmer Falls and Deer Leap Falls. These falls are just a few miles upstream from Dingmans Falls and Silverthread Falls. The site also host the ruins of Joseph Brooks' 19th century wool mill.
