We just returned from a long weekend at Letchworth State Park with our two "tweens" and the whole family had a wonderful time. The park is stunning, filled with beauty and a wide variety of hiking trails. We visited all 3 falls, as well as Mt. Morris dam, Mary Jemison's grave and walked along the banks of Genesse River. We... More

Letchworth State Park fall foliage is just gorgeous. There are several overlooks in the park that have are spectacular vantage points for viewing the gorge, falls and color. There is a rim trail which contains sections that require you to go up/down steps. There are some spur trails that go down into the gorge and these all have steps. The... More

I have been there several different times of the year. This time we caught it at peak fall foliage. It is breathtaking, beautiful, a natural wonder. It rivals. Grand canyon and Niagra Falls.

The State Park was amazing, and the waterfalls especially gorgeous. Do yourself the favor of a lifetime and stay at the Glen Iris Inn overlooking the falls. It was one of the best experiences of my road trip life. A gorgeous old inn with a spectacular view of the falls and an entrance to the falls trail. Friendly staff, amazing... More

This is an ideal location if you love to be outdoors and view waterfalls. The traffic is a nightmare once inside the gate to get to the park itself as there is a craft fair on the weekends...but once you get passed the traffic; it is worth the scenery!!

I never dreamed that Western New York would be so beautiful and this park is truly a gem. It was so clean and so many photo ops with people or without people in the shot. We were there the end of September and the weather was perfect. So glad our friends included this in the places to visit on our... More

This is an amazingly beautiful park with 3 magnificent falls!! My husband and I spent our time walking the trails in the park in the summer and thought the next time we visited we would find a place to kayak. We visited a small historical Indian site near the Glen Iris Inn. It included some out buildings that we were... More

Each of the three major falls in Letchworth State Park is different and distinct, each beautiful in its own way. The three are all located toward the southern end of the park so if you are looking to make a short day and just see the falls, the southern entrance (Portageville) would be the best bet. But the park has... More

Spent a week in September camping here. Very beautiful park, with gorgeous waterfalls. Lots of trails and lots of steps but well worth it. Seen more deer here then most parks I've been to. Camping sites are clean, but not very private. We stayed at #327 which I would say is one of the better ones. Bathrooms are a little... More

This is a beautiful state park!!! We stayed at the Glen Iris Inn and hiked the Gorge trail that runs directly in front of the Inn. We went up to the Upper Falls and down to the Lower Falls and footbridge. So many Kodak moments along the way! The falls were beautiful. The drop offs were unbelieveable. It's not a... More
