Robert Treman State Park, Ithaca

(4.8/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • Stunning any time but especially in the autumn with changing foliage. Only downside is lack of water flow over falls that time of year. Lucifer Falls is the most impressive waterfall in the park and can be seen from several vantage points and trails. Not sure if it's technically allowed but there are several great swimming holes above and below the falls that are good for cleansing the soul.
  • Beautiful place, Love, Love, Love the falls and the hike. Only dislike was no hot water in the men's bathroom sinks. The showers had it, but none in the sinks??? I wouldn't deter me from returning though. Need more sites with amenities for RVs and Motorhomes......like electricity, water...etc.
  • 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.
  • One of our favorite parks. There are hiking trails, waterfalls and more. You can do a loop hike of about 6 miles by going up the Gorge trail to the mill and then taking a combination of the Rim trail and Finger Lakes Trail on the way back.
  • 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.
