A beautiful park with 3 beautiful waterfalls, gorges and unique rock formations Nice Inn in the park to dine at - directly in front of one of the waterfalls. Large park that is not overcrowded. The park has cabins and camping facilities and many hiking trails. The daily fee was $8.

The views are amazing! It is definitely worth to see. The best way to travel around the park is to leave the car on the east side of the park for free and then go along trail 6 and 6A and then on the other side take George trail. You will start with the smallest fall and then you will... More

We loved the park aptly named "grand Canyon of the east". Scenery and hikes were fabulous, great lunch at the Inn (they pack togo for picnics), and beautiful waterfalls. Campsite was not private and very close to neighbours. But the washrooms on the 700 loop were the nicest we have ever encountered camping. Beautiful area of NYS.

Great park. Scenic with much history and beautiful waterfalls. Handicap accessible. Great programs by knowledgeable volunteers (Stephanie was excellent as the guide for the 2 walks/programs we attended). This is our second visit, and not our last.

We camped for four nights at Letchworth State Park in August. Because we were tent camping, we drove around and explored the park during the day (it is the 5th largest state park in New York). We hiked to check out the falls, stopped at the museum, and went to an educational presentation on the history of the park. An... More

Nick named the Grand Canyon of the East, it is a true gem. The three falls are all amazing! The train bridge is also amazing (even though it will be replaced by a new one in next few years). Camping is among the best between the cabins, tenting or RV facilities and rooms as well. The Glen Iris Inn is... More
