Nice state park

This park is right out the back of our hotel room. We walked through many times. It was clean and well kept.

What a great trip! The view was amazing. I never realized how big or nice the whole state park is. The traffic is very congested, they could do a much better job of managing the traffic pattern!! I would suggest parking outside of the main area. I suggest parking at the Gorge or aquarium for free and take the trolley... More

It's well maintained and we stayed close to the entrance. Has maps to show you where the sites were. There is a large gift shop, the usual eatery around too. You can stay as long as you like. The view is great and an experience. The bridge is free at night but I believe there is a fee during the... More

The falls themselves are amazing. But you have to pay to really see them. The park was fair... Somewhat dirty. The city of Niagara itself is a run down slum. It's good to go once... Not worth going a. Second time. Had I known this is what it was like I would have made other plans.

This was our third trip to Niagara falls. We were in town for a lacrosse tourney with our 10&13 year olds and have viewed the falls from the maid of the mist as well as by helicopter. We decided to do it for free this time. The american side of the falls as a reputation for being gaudy for a... More

Took my kids here for a quick overnight to see the falls. Take time to walk and really look around. There are many paths/bridges that lead to spots with a slightly different view of things and other cool sights such as monuments etc... If you want to see the lights (the darker out, the better), make sure you get to... More

Truly a world-class natural wonder . . . Well worth the two hour visit. The view form the Canadian side is superior. The view from the Ameican side is essentially a skyline of Canadian high-rise casinos and hotels. But the state park on the on the American side is prettty, closer to the water, and worth a short walk. We... More
