This park is a hidden jewel. It really has it all. Views, trails, cabins, lodges, rivers, falls, and a great drive. Be sure to check out the inn and visitor centers. Have been here many times and always return.

NY is a beautiful state and Letchworth State Park certainly proves that premise. We enjoyed hiking on the trail along the river and photographing the three waterfalls. The scenery is great. There is plenty of parking and facilities (bathrooms, food, picnic tables and pavilions). We also visited the museum which is dedicated to Mr. Letchworth. He saw the beauty in... More

We had been to this place this summer in July & it is the best place to relax & enjoy with your friends & family. We went with our friends & stayed at Glen Iris Inn which is a best place for stay overlooking the falls. It reminds you of those historical days. The park has 3 beautiful falls-Upper, middle... More

Ok, this place is called the "Grand Canyon of the East"; I think that is a bit much, but it is a truly beautiful spot, and well worth a visit by anyone. On a trip through New England to Niagara on the Lake (To visit wineries), we stopped at Letchworth State Park overnight and arrived in time to do some... More

This is a must see on your bucket list!! It is amazing....beautiful.....the falls are breathtaking. It is easy to get to and plenty to see. You do not have to hike to see these falls which is fantastic for people with disabilities. There are actually a series of falls to look at and none of them are small. You can... More

2ND Time camping at this state park. The views of the waterfalls and are amazing. We went on July 4th, every campsite was filled and the park didn't seem overcrowded. Definitely plan on camping at Letchworth again

My husband and I rode our motorcycle here. The park is nice but the waterfalls are spectacular. You do not have to hike to get to any of the three falls, as parking is close by. This is a must do if in the area.

Visited July 8th with my family. There is opportunity to do as much hiking as you want but the main scenic attractions, namely the falls are accessible without too much walking. There is a museum on the Castile end and a dry dam on the Mt. Morris end. We considered camping but all the cabins were booked by mid May.... More
