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 were planning on stopping through to see Middle Falls but didn't realize that we needed to use the southern entrance of the park. When we arrived at the park's northern gate we realized it was a further half hour drive to the falls and as it was late March, not all roads traveling through the park were open. The view of the dam and the gorge from that gate is pretty though.

We wanted to halt somewhere before we reach Niagara falls and trust me we should thank ourselves for choosing this place. It's a great place to spend with family. There are couple of good size waterfalls here. I believe so people halt here before going to Niagara.

Breath taking views with a large array of family or individual attractions. You must visit and experience what God has created. You won't leave with out thinking when can I come back again. My wife and I fell in love with this part of New York state which has so many things to offer all age groups.

This is a beautiful park. The falls are far nicer than Niagara. Natural setting. You can spend hours here. We rented a car and drove for a few hours. We had a nice lunch in the restaurant by the falls. There is also a small museum.

This park is so beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed these falls and the scenery so much more than Niagara. We ate at the restaurant and had a wonderful meal out on the terrace. There is also a little museum that was interesting.We had a car rental and took our time. You could spend the entire day just chilling.
