We crossed over from the Canadian side by foot in April (Rainbow Bridge - beware of possible wait to get through Customs) and explored the park on foot. There is a tour bus that loops through the park and this is a good option for those less interested in a lot of walking. There was a fair amount of construction... More

Its our first visit and we loved it. You can park your vehicle at the entrance with a $10 and $5 fee. Most opt for the cheaper one. Take the bus tour to save time. But if you love walking you can do some here coz its big. The bus driver would also explain the significance of the stops which... More

We have been the first time to Niagara Falls, NY and the Falls State Park. Parking at one of the state park parking sites is $10 flat and you can use any of the two official parking sites on the same day. However if you want to save some bugs you can use the altnernative parking sites which may charge... More

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...
