“Stunning falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

Arrived here in November on a crisp sunny day. The car park is situated at the start of a 3/4 mile walk to the falls. No one was on the gate so no fees were paid, hooray! (Also the concession stands were not open) The walk is pleasant and easy and the falls (all 215feet of them) are quite spectacular. As this was a winters day not very many people were about but I understand it can get very busy in the summer. Well worth a trip.

“Beautiful Falls and Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2012

This is not to be missed. Beautiful park not too far from Lodi. Good hiking trails. Only problem, restroom facilities are not available by the falls off season. You must drive to the main road to get to one.

“Pretty falls and a nice walk.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012

My husband and I visited the falls yesterday. (November 11) It was a perfect day for the walk as the weather was nice and there were not a lot of people on the trail. The walk to the falls was about 3/4 mile and along the way there is a a small falls as a pretty stream.

The falls themselves was quite impressive. A beautiful spot for photos. A bonus was that being it was so quite we had the falls to ourselves for a while. It made for great photos and a romantic setting for our anniversary!

“A good base to visit the Ithaca area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

This small state park is a great base to visit the Ithaca and Finger Lakes region. There isn't much privacy and you will notice it on weekends but not during the week. The park is clean and you have nice walking trails to see the falls. But go in spring if you want to see the falls. There is only a trickle in the summer. The beach area is a short walk down steep stairs or a short car ride. Summer months bring weekly concert. I will be back for sure.
