The park itself is beautiful, the camp sites are some of the largest I've seen in a state campground. Our campsite was very big and had electricity. Lots of hiking trails and just a walk along the creek is beautiful. It would have been nice...More

We did the hike up the side of the river. Some of the hike was very steep and tiring. We only made it halfway, as we were pressed for time. It was a little daunting to be walking along the edge of a very steep...More

I like this park because it's hidden away from most traffic. In the summer the damn has a slot where they slide a panel in to block the flow of water. This creates a very nice pool with a beach. The park has nice facilities...More

The wife and I hiked the entire trail with friends and it was breath taking and by that I mean, some parts were a steep climb and the views were fantastic. Most of the trail was literally 2-6 feet away from a 300-500 (Maybe more)...More

Park literature portrays the views of the Gorge as "best scene east of the Rockies:?! No, Best views are Watkins Glen, or even Whittaker Falls nearby. Lots of vegetation along the gorge obscures it from view in June...the look-out was a typical roadside view of...More

Great place to take the family for a picnic and playtime in the swim area. If you have time to walk the trail that follows the gulf it is a day you will enjoy and remember. I have never camped there but many people do.

Spent 5 days here and loved it. The campsites are spacious and private. There are some that aren't but they are with electricity and are mostly used by big trailers. The hike to the gorge is 5 miles and can be somewhat challenging but worth...More
