The park is well maintained and has maps to help one navigate. In March, there weren't many people here, but when we were here in the summer, it was very crowded by navigable. One can hear the roar of the waterfalls as soon as you...More

Easily walkable w clearly marked maps located throughout. Smaller park area than I anticipated, but provided lots of spectacular views. Here during off season so attractions not open, but fewer people - so it’s a win anyway!

The park serves excellent views of the world famous falls with easy access and no entrance fees. Parking fee is nominal. One can spend hours and hours enjoying the marvel of nature and take endless pictures. Boat ride to the falls starts in mid May,...More

We were staying in Toronto but I'm very glad I got the ESTA that let me cross over to the US side. The State park gives you a much less crowded and built-up place to view the falls, and you can get a lot closer...More

Nice park, lots of things to do. All you need is to be willing to walk and see around. All the paid activities are up to you but, the main part you can do for free.

The state Park was the perfect place to get up close to the falls. We were able to get some beautiful pictures up close and the observation tower was wonderful!

Stopped after leaving the Aquarium as we headed back to Buffalo - weather was cold and extremely windy so we literally stayed for 30 minutes which gave us enough time to walk out to view the falls. Plenty of parking - nice visitors center -...More

It's commonly known that the NY side is significantly less impressive than the Canada side. That being said, the three sister's islands is worth a visit as you get to experience the raging rivers up close. Parking is free in the NY park after 4p,...More
