My husband and I and our dog had a lovely time here. The rock formations are so huge and amazing. We visited five years ago and decided it was time to go back. Well maintained. Lovely gift shop with the most interesting washrooms you'll ever see. Best five dollars (each) I've spent in ages!

If you have ever seen the roadside gift stores in Harry and the Hendersons or Land of the Lost, this will not disappoint! The rocks are incredible and the price is right!

Did not know beforehand what is there to see. Found beautiful landscapes and trails. Took lots of pictures. Worth the $5 admission per person.

I had been at the Rock City Park 4 years ago with my son. I loved it so much, that this year I wanted my wife to experience its beauty. It's not too far from Olean and once there it is quite clear that we had arrived at the right place: A big sign welcomed us. There is also ample... More

This is a fun afternoon hike. You should be in decent shape in order to explore the grounds of this facility. It is not good for people with physical handicaps. The price is reasonable for the experience. They do have weddings up there on occasions.

Found this place via tripadvisor. Never would have known about this place other wise. You need to watch your kids since there are some steep drop offs but we had a blast. We have two adults and three kids with a couple other families and everyone had a great time. You could easily spend a couple of hours here. Make... More

If you're coming from the Buffalo, NY area this is about 1hr and 45 mins away, so be prepare for a drive into farm land and mountains. This is kinda in the middle of nowhere which is nice because you don't have to worry about crowds. The place is clearing mark with a big entrance sign you cant miss. Once... More

You could have a picnic in the awe of nature. It is worth the effort to get up there and check it out. Well priced for a day of fun outdoors.

Fall is the greatest time to visit bring a camera and an energy drink. When I was a teenager my friends and I would camp out there in the little caves under the big rocks. I took my children there and the my grandchildren, and now my great grandchildren. It is a Must place to see. They now have a... More

Rock City Park features an imposing landscape of huge boulders and rock formations with paths you can walk. A little scary in places, but definitely worth the trip. Not sure I would feel safe with little ones out of a stroller.
