"Beautiful in autumn"

We were at Letchworth in October. Trees were beautiful. Many hiking trails. Great for a day's visit.

to really appreciate it you need get OUT of vehicle and walk around a bit, out onto bridges despite prohibitions, etc. This is, in fact, as so many say , a VERY VERY beautiful place. Do not miss the history , however. Research history and read about area and natives beforehand if you can. Deer are THICK. Bugs go with... More

One of the best state parks in NY State. You have to see it to believe it. Large camping and open areas. One of the historical regions of Western New York. It is referred to as the Grand Canyon of the East.

This is the most beautiful state park that I have been to. A must see for all who like waterfalls and scenic cliff views. There are more hiking trails than one can walk in a week but I have yet to be on one that isn't fun and interesting.

My girlfriend and I took a trip to the park and I must say, breathtakingly beautiful, even with a foot of snow on the ground, it just enhanced the beauty, we will be going back in the spring and fall as well.

This idyllic place has to be experienced to be believed! Camping, hiking, picnicking, white water rafting, horseback riding... This place has it all! The central feature is the gorge...15 miles long and a mile wide... It's referred to as the Grand Canyon of the east. People come from hundreds of miles around to see this place. I've been there more... More

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.
