The Canadian side is so much better. There is a lot of construction going on right now so hopefully once that is complete, it will improve. But at this point I would not return to this park.

Wow, I have been to the falls over 12 times, but always in the summer. Pure white snow, mist and cold. It was simply Beautiful! Freezing, but Beautiful. So glad we were able to visit.

The Canadian side of the falls was worth the extra effort. Everything was far more ordered in appearance and the people were more polite. The American side is dirty and chaotic. The parking cost is atrocious and the commercialism dated and hideous. No I didn't come to buy a sweater designed in the 1980's, I came to see a stunning... More

The State Park is pretty. It's better than the overbuilt casino-esque Candian side of the Falls. With that being said I have to arguments against it...1. The food is so horribly overpriced in the park, it's ridiculous. 2. The area around The State Park is just annoying. I've heard it's not the best area at night, but it's just not... More

If you have never seen the falls frozen, it is worth the trip, and if you don't have a passport or desire to go into Canada, there's a pretty spectacular view from the visitor center. Definitely worth seeing once, but DRESS WARM and be prepared for the wind!!
