We visited the park on October 9th and were delighted with the whole area. It was the scene of turning leaves in the fall time on a sunny day! The Gorge trail we walked all the way up to the top, which was RIGOROUS! Not as " heavy" a climb as Watkins Glen, but close! It included a "stairway to... More

This is a great place to visit...we took the high trail first and then went around to the lower trail...it totaled about 3 miles or so and an elevation change of about 800' roughly according to my tracker...you could not ask for a nicer walk along the water...many wonderful waterfalls. Letchworth is nice...but this is by far more relaxing and... More

Liked the hills and the colorful trees. Liked the running water that you could get right up next to on the trails. Picnic areas were clean and well kept. Great park!

We are always looking for local outdoor places to hike and, have heard of Stony Brook State Park from family members. Decided to make the 2 hour drive on a beautiful fall sunny weekend afternoon. We were not disappointed! Our teenage grandson loved the gorge trail, roughly a mile long with 3 major waterfalls. There are two other trails, East... More

Recently returned from a tent camping weekend in site 95. The grounds here are quite beautiful - old growth trees, meadows and creek. There are easy trails along the stony brook which comes complete with very nice waterfalls. Our site was right next to the cascading creek. Which segues perfectly to the subject of bathrooms! They are clean and conveniently... More

I was born in Dansville. I have been back 2x's now & they have improved it a lot. The trails are nice. The area where you can eat is a lot larger than when we use to go for our reunions. Nice green grass and trees have been saved to make it look nicer than years ago.

We camped here in campers. Stayed in sites 94 & 95. Great sites together. Right on the creek. The site at the end next to 94 was a huge beautiful site. Have never camped here before but would love to come back during nice weather. The hike was great. We did the gorge trail down & east rim back. That... More

This was my first time to stony brook. I enjoyed it so much, minus the chilly water. But what can you expect from a creek, with lots of waterfalls. It just adds to the experience. The hike is beautiful, and the playground is one of the better playgrounds I've been to in a while. I can't wait to make it... More

We camp in the south part of this park every year with friends. It is a great place to do that. There are sites along a creek where we like to explore; there are hiking trails between the two ends of the park. The trails are fairly rigorous, and I think all have stairs. At the north end of the... More
