Letchworth State Park

Named in 2005 as one of Reserve America’s Top Outdoor Locations and in 2004 as one of the Top 100 Campgrounds in the nation. Letchworth State Park, renowned as the “Grand Canyon of the East,” is one of the most scenically magnificent areas in the eastern U.S. The Genesee River roars through the gorge over three major waterfalls between cliffs–as high as 600 feet in some places–surrounded by lush forests. Hikers can choose among 66 miles of hiking trails. Trails are also available for horseback riding, biking, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. Letchworth offers nature, history and performing arts programs, guided walks and tours, a summer lecture series, whitewater rafting, kayaking, hot air ballooning and two pools for swimming. Winter activities include ice skating, snow tubing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and horse-drawn sleigh rides. The park is open year round. The camping area is open from mid-May to mid-October. Cabins may be rented year round. Deer and spring turkey hunting are permitted in season.
