A huge expanse of natural beauty, this oldest state park in the U.S. offers biking, fishing and cross-country skiing, and contains plenty of hiking and walking trails, including the Niagara Gorge Trail System, which affords great views of both the falls and the gorge.

Such an amazing once in a life time experience visiting the falls. If you can view from Both the US & Canadian sides. we enjoyed the Canadian side better.

Cold and windy today but we had never seen the falls from the American side. Observation tower offers a great view of both falls and was free for this visit at least - not sure about prime times. Park is quite large and beautiful.

I went for the first time at night and it was beautiful, the falls are lit up! They have fireworks at night but you should check the schedule to make sure the time.

If you like to enjoy the views, but you don't want to walk: take the tram. It's easy and it takes you all around the state park.

Great way to see the falls. You can get quite close. Shops and rest rooms. Lots of parking. Observation deck. Souvenirs. Would probably be lovely in the summer.

Niagara Falls and the park are a must see. Was on my bucket list for years. We walked the park and took a Grayline tour. Really worth it.

I’ve been here a few times in the summer and it’s so overwhelming with the crowds. I really liked visiting with my small kids in November - still beautiful sites, but not totally packed. We loved the trolley and kids under 5 are free.

You can get them there. Go early. We did not wait much in line but when we were coming out the lines were quite long.

Pass worthwhile as long as you're able to do all activities. Mobility issues kept me away from water underfoot so we didn't purchase.
