Amazing views and you are standing on the falls themselves!

The view from the NY is much better than I thought. You actually are on the falls instead of across from it, but still you get to see the beautiful views . Great place

This is the oldest state park in the nation and offers many areas to get close to the Falls. Great walking and biking options as well as the Niagara discovery shuttle which is free and will take you all the way to Fort Niagara at the mouth of the Niagara river as it spills into lake Ontario.

Great state park. Lots of things to do. Or just stand and stare the falls all day and won't be bored. Must visit for everyone. You don't see such great falls anywhere else. Nice clean place. Great for walking.

The Park does a very commendable job at trying to accommodate guests and there were signs of renovation and new facilities since last we were visiting (some eight years ago). Great to view the rapids in the river and stand literally adjacent to both the American and Horseshoe falls (inc. Bridal Veil). Islands allow you to see the quitter as... More

Beautiful, clean, plenty of benches . Great view of the falls if you don't want to take a boat ride. Refreshments are expensive though. $5 for a bottle of water ! Souvenir shops and restaurants. You can also go up on the observation deck for a better view.

The falls are beautiful and mesmerizing. A must see if in the area- Canadian side has best views. The downtown area is tacky tourist and comical and should be checked out for fun. Spend all your time viewing the falls.

This is a beautiful natural wonder and well worth the visit. We walked all over the park and saw the Falls. It was awe-inspiring.

I had always thought one needed to go to the Canadian side to really get the best view of the Falls. Completely not true! The NY side has everything, is cheaper, way less commercial, and it's a lovely park as well. Buy the Discovery Pass if you want to do the usual attractions like Maid of the Mist, Cave of... More
