Beautiful, clean park with amazing view of the falls. The area currently has a lot of construction going on to improve the park even further. The walking paths and overlook deck allow travelers great, close up views of this beautiful, natural attraction. Definitely recommend ! Bring your camera!

The views of the falls are amazing and the park is well worth walking around. Unfortunately when we were there a lot of the paths were still closed due to the amount of snow that they have had this winter. I would recommend it as a place to visit.

Took our kids here and they loved it! It was off season so it wasn't terribly busy. The overlook deck was amazing and the falls were breath taking! Highly recommend making the trip to see them!

I was told by many to not bother with the American side of Niagara Falls because the Canadian side is far superior. WRONG! The US park was like most state owned parks, which means it was clean and well kept - and ongoing improvements were underway. Niagara City is junky looking like all touristy towns hosting cheap non-US made souvenirs... More

Trolly was cool, definitely worth the time to see the falls from every view. Visit the falls at night, it's so pretty. Walk the park during the day, there are a lot of beautiful picture spots.

The Falls were nice to see. They are big. But coming from Utah, where we have so many national parks nearby, we expected the peace and wilderness feel you get in the those Parks with the Niagra Falls. We were very disappointed. Concessions were shut down and construction every where. The good side-we took the road to the State Park... More

Was a little disappointed that the observation tower was closed, but we loved it. They are doing some remodeling which was a little inconvenient, but I'm sure it will make the area more family friendly.

I liked all the amazing nature around. The only minus is that where were not enough places for eating out.

We crossed over from the Canadian side to see how things are south of the border. The park is unkempt and abandoned. There seems to be no one incharge of maintaining it. We barely spent a few minutes before we headed back to our homeland.

The state park was quite wet and muddy... and many of the attractions were closed due to ice - so no Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds, etc. Disappointing. We were actually really disappointed with staff because we paid for parking ($10/car!) and arrived in the tourist center and looked around for at least 10 minutes until figuring... More
