Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Letchworth State Park, the "Grand Canyon of the East," is where a 17-mile stretch of the Genesee River roars through the park's scenic gorge with three major waterfalls and cliffs as high as 600 feet, surrounded by lush forests. Recently named Best State Park in the nation, Letchworth's new Humphrey Nature Center is a must-see. Walk the seven-mile Gorge Trail with jaw-dropping views at the overlooks or take the trail to the water's edge. I addition to trails, several hundred campsites and cabins, other amenities and activities include a pool, playground, athletic fields, festivals, cultural events, history and performing arts programs, guided walks, whitewater rafting, and hot-air ballooning.

We stayed in the 500 loop last week, before the holiday. If it wasn't for the rain, it would have been a perfect stay. The camping area was maybe 25% occupied, so it was quiet. The camping spots on all of the loops are for the most part, huge compared to other campgrounds. Compared to the KOA's we were at this year, this low-cost State Park's ($21/night) sites were about 3 times larger.

We drove the full length of the park and hiked several trails. The rangers, staff and visitors keep the park well maintained. We didn't go to the pool on this trip, but it's great. Make sure to see as much as possible when you're here.

I have been to Letchworth in the past but its been about ten or so years. The falls are nice to see and great scenery throughout the park. A great place for a picnic!

We went to the park because it was recommended to us and we were not disappointted at all! It was beautiful!
There is so much to do and to see - the waterfalls, the gorge,the pool, the beautiful Glen Iris Inn (sample the food!) and the many hikes, trails etc. There is sm omething for everybody here.
You can stay at the Inn but this gets very busy, the lodges belonging to the Inn and the campground.
Whether you are going to go for a week or a day, there is Always something to do or see.
We will most certeinly go back again!

There are lots of hiking trails and lots of photo opportunites. The south end of the park has the Glen Iris and the 3 falls. The north end has lots of views of the Mt Morris Dam.
