We visited the park in late March and we really enjoyed the solitude and unspoiled beauty. It was early morning and our steps were the first through the newly fallen snow. The only sounds we heard were the birds. It is amazing to think that less than a mile away is a completely different experience filled with activities and people.... More

It was only about 20 degrees but we couldn't resist the photo opportunities. The ice and mist along the falls was beautiful! If you can handle the icy temps, its a great time of year to go as there were no crowds!

Everytime I visit this place especially on a holiday- I always say this is the last time... with all the crowds and noise this is a busy park. But something draws me to Niagara everytime.. it has a certain charm to it.. Its especially breathtaking in the summer nights... especially on full moon nights..

The partially frozen falls were beautiful. it was a very pleasant experience even though it was cold and the ground snow covered. It actually made for quite an adventure.

As a side trip from the Fashion Outlet Mall, we stopped at Niagara Falls State Park to see the falls. Due to the extreme cold that the area has had this winter, there is so much ice coverage that at times the falls appear to be frozen. It is an amazing sight to see. The park and falls are also...

We were lucky enough to miss the wonter storms, but still has a thick layer of snow to walk through and enjoy. The frozen falls were amazing and the lack of crowds made it easy to take spectacular photos. It was cold (25F), but well worth it.

This area is great anytime of year (Except USA holidays---July 4 is probably worst with insane crowds and sometimes no parking at all). The Winter views of the Falls are spectacular and the ice forms everywhere from the mist coming off the water. This also means that the area closest to Falls is blocked up for safety at this time...

Beautiful even in the winter! Dress warm and be careful, slippery at times! Mist splashes so you may get a little wet too!
