We were able to walk the park with no problems. Remember there are a lot of stairs if you want to see all of the waterfalls. Overall this was well worth the drive to see and made for a fun day outdoors.

Yesterday we went on a bus trip to Seneca Lake Wineries. We completed our trip at Seneca Lake State Park. What a beautiful place. There are pavilions and playgrounds. Numerous walking trails. Many picnic tables and cooking areas. Well maintained rest rooms. All alongside Seneca Lake. We are going to take a drive back with the grandkids for a picnic.

Seneca Lake State Park is a beautiful park on the water. There is a walking track and a very short bike trail. I rode from end to end and the distance was just under 6 miles. Nice spot for a picnic.

Very nice area for boating, picnicking, swimming, fishing etc. My grandson loves the spray park here. There is a fee to park. The Empire passport is accepted here for parking.

This is a beautiful park that winds along the willow lined shore of mostly undeveloped Seneca Lake. There is a Marina, a small beach, waterpark for children and multiple public barbecue pits. Unfortunately, the walking/bike path hasn't been paved in years and you can expect to get a pebble in your shoe or even stumble if you let your guard... More

We walked from the Ramada Hotel on the lake front, along the shore and into the park. It's free for pedestrians , but cars pay $7. The walking paths and cycle lanes are well maintained and go round the end of the lake to where the canal meets the lake. You can continue to walk along the canal to other... More

We had a family reunion in August and the park was very nice and the pavilions were clean and appreciated for coverage/shelter.

Having lived along the ocean for many years, seeing this expansive lake in the middle of New York was impressive. There is the obvious influence of people but it doesn't diminish the natural beauty of this super deep (600'+) super long glacial lake. The State Park starts in Geneva and expands to 141 acres of serene, quiet park that includes... More
