The actual park is clean but much of it was under construction so it took away from the scenery. Great views but better views of Horseshoe falls from the Canadian side. It was great to go to Goat Island and be only feet away from the falls. It was a nice walk along the trail by Horseshoe Falls and you... More

There is plenty to do and see at the Niagara Falls State Park, the falls are beautiful and you can get right up there close at the park. Be sure to take the Mist of the Falls boat ride, it is fantastic, but be ready to get wet. They furnish raincoats.

Parking is expensive haha, but worth it. I recommend getting their "package trip" in their website because you get tickets on a much lower price. Also a free train ride from one destination to another. A trick would be finding this bus/train stop (purchasing the package for tickets early on) and finding cheap or free parking somewhere.

My wife had wanted to visit Niagara Falls for quite sometime, I was not too bothered about going. When some cheapish flights to Toronto came up we decided to go have a few days in the city then go to Niagara. We enjoyed the city ( could be another revue ) then to the go train to the falls, to...

I've been to Niagara Falls many times, however this was my first visit to the NY side assuming the Cabadian side had more to offer, and it does....more commercialism! This park is a great example if how simply amazing the falls really is without all the silly and expensive touristy things! Granted the park is kind of a mess right... More

I was really excited to visit the falls recently as it has been on my bucket list for a long time. While it was beautiful, I couldn't help but be disappointed somewhat as it seemed that everything in the park was under construction or closed for the season. Parking was sky high for what ended up being an hour trip.... More

The state park is well kept, clean, and easy to walk around. There are several observation decks for you to look down upon the Falls. The one by the Horseshoe Falls is probably the prettiest. Apparently you used to be able to go to the `island' between the Bridal Veil Falls and the American Falls, but it was closed off... More
