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

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 acres upon acres of jaw-dropping views, and the campground here is the perfect place to post up while exploring every last one of them. Dubbed the “Grand Canyon of the East,” Letchworth features a massive gorge created by the Genesee River. The river spills over three spectacular waterfalls, some as high as 600 feet! So if you're going to forget something when you pack for your trip, whatever you do, make sure it’s not the camera.

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.

Gorgeous views. Parts, especially the waterfall are a little crowded but a fun trip none the less! Great spot for camping with a group of friends!
