Smack dab in the natural beauty of the Finger Lakes region, this park is famous for it’s over 19 waterfalls. The abrupt drop off Glen Creek into Seneca Valley created a powerful torrent, creating these Instagrammable gems. Taking the George Trail and Indian Trail loop, which is just a 2.4 mile round-trip hike, will get you up close and personal to many of these natural cascades. A trip to Glen Cathedral alone will allow you to see 11 of the park's most active waterfalls,
But there’s more to do here than just waterfall chasing. For instance, have a spread atop one of the many picnic tables and, afterward on-site public swimming pool. Also, excellent fishing can be had at nearby Seneca Lake or Catherine Creek. Both areas are well known for their annual spring rainbow trout runs—so fly fishermen (and women), rejoice!
Camping here couldn't be any easier, with over 200 campsites spread out over four camping areas, accessible through both the park's main entrance and upper entrance. RV campsites—with full hookups and access to on-site drinking water—are available for reservation, as well.
Come Labor Day, this park is hoppin’ with campers, hikers, and the like. So, if you plan on spending the long weekend at this Finger Lake State Park, plan (and reserve) ahead.
Dog lovers, take note: Your fur-babies aren't allowed in pool area or on the Gorge Trail. Leaked pups, however, are allowed on the Indian Trail and South Rim Trail. Most campsites, too, are dog-friendly, but double check to make sure yours is before booking.
