High Falls Access Area
The High Falls Access Area parking lot (formerly the Buck Forest Parking Lot) is the main access to Dupont State Recreational Forest. Located on Staton Road (see driving directions below) it is convenient to most of the waterfalls and lakes in the Forest. This is also home to the Aleen Steinberg Center now finishing construction and due to open in July.
Facilities in High Falls Access Area include an Information Kiosk and a covered shelter in addition to the Aleen Steinberg Center. There are also excellent restroom facilities. The water fountain outside the restrooms may be turned off in cold weather due to freezing risk.
This parking area is not recommended for horse trailers due to tight maneuvering room and lack of horse facilities nearby.
This area is extremely busy on holidays and on weekends. If you want to use this lot plan your arrival very early in the morning or on a weekday. Do not park on Staton Road if the lot is full. Police have ticketed illegally parked cars in the area.
