My fiancé and I took a random overnight trip to Letchworth State Park area. We stayed at the Ridge Campground, and when we were checking out the next day-the owners suggested that we stop into this State Park before we headed home. Man, were we glad that they had suggested it! We had already been to Letchworth State Park earlier... More

Spent the day here with family. We got here around 11:30 on a Sunday and I'm glad we got there when we did because we got a space in a parking lot, rather than a grass field. The entrance fee was $7. The kids swam in the natural pool (temperature was 62) for a short time before we walked the... More

I've been here twice with my daughter - once in 2013 and once in 2015. Both times were great, but it's definitely more fun on a sunny, warm day. We stayed for hours - brought a picnic lunch, hiked the gorge trail (don't forget your water shoes), and swam in the natural pool. The pool was open both times we... More

I've been going to Stony Brook for as long as I can remember, we have always brought a picnic lunch and spent time in the falls or swimming in the man-made swimming pool. As an adult, I still love the park. A short hike, (though many stairs, I would not recommend bringing a stroller/wagon if you are hiking) which shows... More

Walking through the water along the gorge trail is one of the coolest things to do. Highly suggest bringing swimming shoes or something to protect your feet. The scenery is gorgeous and for $7 you can't beat the entry fee. They have a snack bar, camping, pool, playground, ect. Awesome place an hour south of Rochester!

This park was better than expected, similar to Watkins Glen, but less discovered. Beautiful gorges and water falls. It is definitely worth the hike, which is not difficult.

This park has become a family tradition to see whenever we are in town visiting the in laws. The trails are well kept as well as a decent sized play yard for the younger kids. You could spend hours enjoying the sights here!

This state parks has 2 separate places...upper and lower. The upper is for camping and hiking and the lower has many picnic tables, tennis courts, swimming, and play area for kids. You can get to the upper park by hiking the glen or driving around and entering the upper park. The hike to the upper park is strenuous. You can... More

Small state park that is a wonderful place to hike take small children picnic etc. the pools are very very cold as it is a natural pool so be prepared. Walking on trails is delightful so bring a camera. I would not recommend walking trails if it has been raining as trails are VERY slippery then. There is also camping... More
