Stayed 2 nights at Cabin Area E. Attraction is nice and there is plenty of info available however there is very little information available on web about Cabin E. So, I'll limit this post about Cabin Area E only. Cabin Area E is in a remote location approx 7 miles away from main attraction but it is actually over 30... More

Very disappointed after so many people told me not to miss it. Overrated for the following reasons... 1) Too big... Because it's so big, you have to drive a lot which defeats the point of a nature park. They should break it into smaller parks. 2) Overdeveloped and under-maintained... The Lower Falls smelled really strongly of human sewage... I wouldn't... More

Well worth the 75 minute drive. Took a rafting trip that was fun (but total time was longer than "advertised". Online guide said 2.5 hours - it end up being a total of 4 from start / gear - up to equipment drop-0ff. Hikes to the 3 falls were all of a manageable distance / difficulty and wee all worthwhile....

We got married here right in front of middle falls. The whole park is so beautiful and there are so many great views that make great photo opportunities. Good hiking...great place to pack a lunch and go for the day. It is a long drive (30 mins) to get through the park but worth it!!!

There is a reason this park is rated as one of the best - Nature at it's best - the park is large and requires a vehicle or bike. The 3 waterfalls are amazing - the middle and upper falls are easy viewing but be prepared for a hike to view the lower falls. there are 127 steps down -... More

We entered at Mt. Morris entrance and as we were driving through, were amazed by the views, landscapes and beauty everywhere! This place is a real gem and even though is was July, because the place is large it never felt really crowded...we hiked and explored many of the trails & paths....everything is well marked and easy to get around....

We had a beautiful ride, the entire length of the park, north to south. Easy to get to pull-offs, and great views. We found the middle falls to be the most attractive.

Visited the Letchworth Park July 2015, and stayed in the Cabin E loop. Rustic cabins. Nature is beautiful. These cabins are at the far end of the park, poor roads. Toilets outside the cabin. For bathing facilities need to drive 3 miles to the Cabin D loop; where the facilities are fancy. The cabins have 4 beds with mattresses, a... More

Age 62 and over... FREE on Mon-Fri. I am 40 w 3 kids. I paid the 8 bucks 3 separate times. Also, You GET IN FREE BEFORE 9 A.M....when the gates are unmanned. Hiking is awesome. Don't get too close to edges as there are many places w +200' fall (that'll spoil your day). We hiked Upper, Middle, and Lower... More
