Words cannot describe the power and beauty of Niagra Falls. It was rainy and windy and cold and so so so THRILLING! It was nighttime. Heard them first ....so cool to see them at night with the lights on them. Pictures or videos can't do it justice.

We went to the Niagara Falls State Park on the weekend before school started. There were so many people and we had problems finding a parking place. We succeeded though to find a parking spot. It had been a long time since we visited this place. The whole park had changed. It is now way better than before! We were... More

Visited here for a weekend in November. We arrived at night, and walked over to the falls. To be honest, I wasn't very impressed with everything in the dark. The falls were lit up, and had the nice Canadian city lights in the background. The next day was more impressive! We walked all over the falls, and got soaked! Took... More

Recent improvements have made a good place to visit GREAT. Better walkways, improved views and friendly Staff make this a Buffalo area Landmark a must see. Spent a day taking it all in and the progress being made is visible through out the Park. If you have not visited this attraction recently, you should really consider a stop. It was... More

We had to pay parking fees at the park, but there was nothing to do, to see. Why charge a parking fee in winter time? the park is totally dead and there is nothing to see.

Wish I had not been there during the winter. The ice can be beautiful but all the walk ways to the best views are closed because of winter. The restaurant was closed for the winter and I somehow missed that online. Most attractions were closed and still 8 dollars to park. But the falls are beautiful. I'm going to take... More

In the peak summer months, all the lots in this park fill up early. We decided to book a bus tour and not worry about parking. Great place with so many different views of the Falls. Very busy tourist area.

We enjoyed our time at the park. I would have to say the Canada side is nicer and cleaner, but the US side will give you a better up close experience of the falls.

I was here in January 17 and it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen - Parking on Goat Island and walking through the ice/snow covered trees to the left of Horseshoe falls was my favorite part of the whole trip!! It was stunning!!!

Cold and chilly beautiful weekend. The park was under renovations and attractions are closed during the winter but you can still see the beautiful falls!
