Its a Niagra Gorge trail from where the Niagara River takes a 90 degree turn anf creates a whirlpool . It seems like the Niagara river ends there but thats the nice illusion to be seen. And the park is also serene and beautiful.

Another great place to see the power of the Falls. Great bathrooms and the path around the park was flat and clean.

The view of the whirlpool from the New York side of the river is the best I think. You can really see the action in the water and watch the AeroCar and jet boats. The paths are well maintained and park would probably be nice when the grass is not brown. Must be short on rain this summer. Make time... More

We very much enjoyed the views and the walking at this state park. There was plenty of parking and the grassy areas are very well maintained. We took some beautiful photos, including some that my daughter plans to use for her senior pics.

We went here at the end of the day after visiting Niagara Falls and it was nice to walk around and see the water coming from Niagara and starting to make whirlpools in the pool.

I think this park has two names, Devil's Hole and Whirlpool State Park. You can get very nice views of the Niagara from here, especially during the summer. The water looks very nice and you could get some great photographs here. However, it is only accessible by car, unless you want to walk for a very long time.

We went to the Whirlpool State Park so the grandchildren could see it. Sadly the steps for the Park were closed. Looking from the top wasn't as good as it would have been if the steps were open.
