We very much enjoyed the views and the walking at this state park. There was plenty of parking and the grassy areas are very well maintained. We took some beautiful photos, including some that my daughter plans to use for her senior pics.

We went here at the end of the day after visiting Niagara Falls and it was nice to walk around and see the water coming from Niagara and starting to make whirlpools in the pool.

I think this park has two names, Devil's Hole and Whirlpool State Park. You can get very nice views of the Niagara from here, especially during the summer. The water looks very nice and you could get some great photographs here. However, it is only accessible by car, unless you want to walk for a very long time.

We went to the Whirlpool State Park so the grandchildren could see it. Sadly the steps for the Park were closed. Looking from the top wasn't as good as it would have been if the steps were open.

What beautiful views of the river. The park is decent. It's fairly well maintained. Plenty of parking. And a nice walking trail along the River Bank. Gorgeous gorgeous views.

Our 1st stop (trying to find parking for Niagara St Park, missed our turn and ended up here!) Lol! Really pretty, serene spot. Hubby and I were happy to be out of the car and this was a beautiful place to stretch out legs, have a picnic, and enjoy the view. Saw the Whirlpool Jet boat come flying in! Looked... More

Beautiful site to see! Better with a tour guide as you get a lot of insite to the history of this park. Clean and peaceful.
