“Highly Recommend!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

This was a great experience! This State Park is one of my favorites and I loved walking around the park to get in different views of the falls. It is really a unique experience and I am glad that NY has preserved such a wonderful piece of nature.

“Do the Maid of the Mist”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

You'll get to see the rapids just at the park, and the first falls, but the Maid of the Mist is a must-do.

“A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

New York State's Niagara Falls State Park has an overlook directly above the Falls (3 Sister Islands); under the Falls (Maid of the Mist on the NY side of the River); and beneath the Falls (Cave of the Winds). Add to those attractions the bike-walking trail above the Niagara River at the cliff's edge. Unfortunately there is no direct entrance to the New York Power Authority's Visitors Center from the northern end of the Trail.

“Beautiful state park with close up views of falls!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Definitely stop by even if you are on your way to Canada. Observation desk, trolley, goat island, close up view of Bridal Veil and more!

“A must-see for everyone!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Definitely take your kids/significant other/bff and enjoy the falls! Aside from the small and out-dated aquarium at the north end of the park, everything here is worth doing. Maid of the Mist and the Journey Behind the Falls are on the top of the list. Keep in mind it's a state park and not like the privately owned Canadian side of the falls where you'll have fancier/newer hotels and attractions.
