Watkins Glen State Park is the most famous of the Finger Lakes State Parks, with a reputation for leaving visitors spellbound. Within two miles, the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade. Rim trails overlook the gorge. Campers and day-visitors can enjoy the Olympic-size pool, scheduled summer tours through the gorge, tent and trailer campsites, picnic facilities and excellent fishing in nearby Seneca Lake or Catherine Creek, which is renowned for its annual spring run of rainbow trout.

Finally had chance to write a review. Simply amazing especially the people who run the park.Main gate-was the best way ever to start our trip. She was sooooooo entertaining and helpful throughout our stay.
May 8 Amazing!!!
This place is absolutely amazing. The walk along the water and the breath taking waterfalls make this a great park. Bring your camera. Also, great park on hot summer days, mostly shaded and many spots where you can get some mist off the falls!! This place ROCKS!
