About Letchworth State Park

From New York, the Grand Canyon just feels so far away. Luckily, the East Coast has a little secret, and that's Letchworth State Park. Go white water rafting down the Genessee River, through a gorge that passes by monumental cliffs and lush forest. If all of the above is too extreme, take a hike! There are 66 trails to choose from, after all. For the learnin' types, Letchworth offers nature, history and performing arts programs, guided walks, tours, and a summer lecture series. After all that heavy information, take a load off with a hot air balloon ride. Of course, a place this breathtaking can't be kept too secret, so luckily there are over three hundred campsites, a few cabins, many right along the water to choose from, as well as an historic inn.

This is the New York that people need to see. Not that metropolitan mecca that seems to take all the credit. Letchworth State Park is basically...

Letchworth is huge... don't limit yourself to the easy accessible points on the west side, get to the east and explore some more remote points with less foot traffic!

Camped Memorial Day weekend 2016. Drive in sites. Main part of park (the three fall and visitor center) over 10 miles South. Sites are wooded and come with a fire ring and picnic table. Bathrooms and water spigots available all eight campsite loops. A camp store carries ice, soda, bug spray, etc.; they do not sell beer. The hiking is easy, due to the fact you are above the gorge. Did the full Gorge trail (9 miles), very well maintained (could use a few more blazes though), and an area near the rafting house moves onto the street for a bit. But, you come here for the falls. Impossible to take a bad picture.
