Letchworth State Park, renowned as the "Grand Canyon of the East," is one of the most scenically magnificent areas in the eastern U.S. The Genesee River roars through the gorge over three major waterfalls between cliffs--as high as 600 feet in some places--surrounded by lush forests. Hikers can choose among 66 miles of hiking trails. Trails are also available for horseback riding, biking, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. Letchworth offers nature, history and performing arts programs, guided walks and tours, a summer lecture series, whitewater rafting, kayaking, hot air ballooning and two pools for swimming. Winter activities include ice skating, snow tubing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and horse-drawn sleigh rides.
Camping
Campers can take advantage of tent and trailer campsites or winterized cabins. Group camping facilities are also available.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
March 18 Fall in love with nature by Nature lover
Really nice and beautiful nature place. Big water falls better than Niagara fall. Just 2 hour drive from Buffalo. Really impressive Nature and Chipmunks. Will go there every year.
November 13 Nothing compares to Letchworth St Park by Cheryl Conaway
I had the opportunity to visit the park this year after ten years and it still took my breath away. I have been all over the US to all kinds of parks but Letchworth still stands out as one of the most beautiful parks there is esp. during the fall season. I would recommend the park to anyone to visit, great for families.
October 11 the Best by Betty Gardinier
I grew up around the park and played in the park for many years. It is the most beautiful place on the east coast.
September 7 One of our farorite parks by Judy Kilburn
My grandparents took me there for family reunions every year near the big swimming pool. Now I take my two grandsons there, to continue the tradition. It is one of the most beautiful sites in all of America, and of course New York.
July 28 Scenic splendor ! by Linda
We spent a leisurely eight hours walking and driving through the park. Every path or stairway led to a breath-taking sight. The tree and plant diversity was grand and the wildflowers beautiful. Letchworth is a must see natural treasure.
