4.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
Robert Treman State Park, a picturesque region of rocky gorges, creeks and waterfalls, boasts high-quality walking trails, camping grounds, a swimming beach and picnic grounds. Hike the gorge trail to see 12 different waterfalls, including the impressive Lucifer Falls. The multitiered falls cascades 35 m (115 ft). Visit the Enfield Falls Mill--which is on the National Register of Historic Places--and Miller's House, a former gristmill that ground buckwheat, wheat and coarser grains. It now serves as a small museum that documents the milling process. Head to the lower falls for the lifeguard-monitored swimming beach. Bring a picnic to enjoy at picnic tables under shady trees.

  • Hiked the Gorge Trail and the Rim Trail on a warm, mostly sunny July day. The ~2 mile Gorge Trail is a must-do. Not only do you hike a beautiful, fairly easy path, but there are also many opportunities to go for a swim next to the waterfalls! The Rim Trail is much more wooded and secluded, missing the water views of the Gorge, but also quieter and less populated. I recommend it coming back, after enjoying the Gorge. After a good day's hike, Ithaca Beer Co.'s taproom is just a short drive away for a refreshing beer and lawn games!
  • Absolutely beautiful. Trails were marked and very visible... scenery is stunning. Waterfalls are breathtaking... a must see if you like to hike. A lot of elevation changes and at times it xan make the hike difficult.
  • Beautiful place! Excellent, lots of family fun. The swimming whole is absolutely great, safe, lifeguards, clean and beautiful. Park rangers and office staff are very nice, professional and knowledgeable. Responded very quickly to my request and very helpful. Bathrooms are clean, campsites are nice big areas. Views are exceptional during the hike. Trails are excellently marked and well maintained . Highly recommended it. Definitely going back soon.
  • Well worth the visit! We stopped by for just the day. Probably one of the most beautiful parks that I've ever hiked at. Definitely recommend to wear either sneakers or hiking boots, parts of the gorge trail were steep. I would like to come back soon to camp and hike the rim trail.
  • Lucifer falls and Devil's kitchen and everything around those is the most beautiful place I have ever been to. Very beautiful and also cool history. Highly recommend coming here. Probably one of the greatest hidden gems.
