Grew up taking family camping trips here. Have been back many times since. Enjoyable each and every time. Fall is the most attractive, visually. But all seasons pleasant ! ( I have even camped nearby in winter!). Attractions for the kids (recreation center, ping pong, community bingo, dodge ball, checkers), nature hikes day and evening. Clean, friendly, affordable campgrounds. Dog... More

It was cold and it is the reason I moved to Florida, but when I visit it is always one of the highlights of the trip. I had childhood flashbacks of tubing and hiking in the woods. If you are from here, go back and see. If you want a place to visit and have a great time with out... More

Try to visit in the winter, so many cool things that take shape in the off season. The ice volcano is amazing, the falls are even better.

I love it here! I have been to the park in the summer, Fall and Winter. It is a great place to visit during all seasons. So much to do. In the summer you can visit the museums, the falls, take in the breath taking views, hiking, camp, stay in a cabin and so much more. In the winter they... More

I've visited Letchworth a few times in the past few years. I most recently went this weekend with my boyfriend and saw the ice volcano. Unreal! What was even more amazing was the frozen waterfall right behind Glen Iris Inn. So gorgeous. A wonderful day trip and highly recommended. If you have time, do a small hike, snowshoes may be... More

I visited Letchworth State Park in Castile, NY. Letchworth is a huge park that includes 14,350 acres along the Genesee River. I went with my husband, son and his fiance to visit this beautiful state park. My son and his fiance live in Syracuse so we left from their home. It is approximately 1.5 hours west of Syracuse NY and... More

My friend and I visited Letchworth State Park in August 2014. We did a two day one night stay and enjoyed our trip immensely. There are several beautiful waterfalls and the whole park is exceptionally clean and picturesque. We even got to see a few deer while we were there. We went to the park to do some photography and...

The frozen falls (while only accessible by walking through about 10 inches of snow) were absolutely breathtaking. Highly recommend if you are anywhere near Letchworth that you take advantage of its natural magnificence every season!

It was beautiful with all the snow, but they only plow some of it and you have to have snow shoes to get to see any of the falls in the winter months.

Amazing views, huge waterfalls, lots of great hiking trails, and cabins. We were blown away at how beautiful it was here. We spent two days hiking and exploring and still didnt cover a fraction of the park, We hike alot and this was a place to remember! HIGHLY recommend!
