My family stayed at one of the cabins (B-10) at the south side of the state park. The cabin was small, but was just what we needed, with electricity, a refrigerator, a small stove and cooktop, two bedrooms (with 2 single beds in each) and two more cots in the main room with the kitchen table. There was a bathroom... More

I had seen pictures and heard about it from a friend who has been going since childhood. It lived up to my expectations and surpassed them. So amazing.

I love hiking in Letchworth! Aside from its natural beauty, I am able to go geocaching there, too. Now, they have opened a nature center that I'll have to go back and visit. The Park Staff are constantly working to improve the park for all ages to enjoy!

I came here last year with my partner and it was such a beautiful place to walk and take in the lovely surroundings. Came back again this year and celebrated our anniversary and my birthday, we sat by the river it was so lovely and peaceful. Definitely a place to come and see if you come to Rochester!

Outstanding waterfalls! Great views of canyons and short or long hikes to the viewing areas. Recommend entering from the southern end as sites are closer to each other here. Head to the visitor center first for information.

I love waterfalls, and this state park offers three great falls. Despite of the Lower Falls with 127 stairs or so to get down to, the access to see them is also very easy so there's no need to go for a long hike unless you want to see more than the falls - and in Letchworth State Park there...

This was our second visit to camp at the park. We were equally impressed this time around. What a beautiful spot to spend a vacation. The Waterfalls are absolutely beautiful. We found places in the park we never even got to last year. We are booking again for next year! We preferred the quieter setting of Sept than the Aug... More

We had heard about the "Grand Canyon of the East" when we were visiting the "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania" last fall, so we decided to visit Letchworth State Park to see if it was worthy of the hype. The answer is a resounding YES!! From the moment we entered the park (which proudly proclaimed it was the #1 State Park... More

Prepare yourself to be in awe from the moment you enter the park until the moment you leave. Letchworth is 17 miles long and we spent 3 hours driving that distance because of the numerous stops we made. The park sparkles with cleanliness due in large part to their carry in and carry out philosophy. There aren't any waste receptacles.... More

There is hiking, a lot or a little depends on your mood/capabilities. The middle fall is lit at night ans is spectacular. We stayed two nights. Rooms were good for a state park. The park was very clean. Water was low so we couldn't go white water rafting, but if we could have you know it would be awesome.
