  • It is a very lovely hike. We didn't swim as the lake was closed due to a poor health quality count. There was a beautiful waterfall and plenty of green cover from the sun. 
  • The Filmore Glen is one of our greatest local attractions. A wonderful set of trails with stops near many waterfalls. I think the craftsmanship of the trails themselves is one of the great assets the park has. Stone work and masonry laid by poor American workers in a CCC camp. The amount of actual work that went into this place is amazing. The skill and tenacity of the craftsman can be seen from beginning to end. Although, in the past twenty years or so, things have been going down hill. With less funding and less interest from the public the park has suffered. Weathered and in disrepair I myself had feared the worse for this NY landmark. In the past few years the park has received a few very generous grants and funding. A huge new playground and much work have brought it back closer to its former greatness. With another several million dollar grant given this past summer to spruce up the main Pavilion and other various projects. This little gem should be shiny and new in no time. I was raised in this park. I've fallen in love and been married in this park. I've watched my kids grow up in this park. A true natural beauty overlooked by too many.
  • I loved camping here. Grounds are clean and well taken care of. Everyone is so nice and helpful
  • Awesome. More than I expected, hence the 5 stars. I really appreciated the quiet and solitude this place provides, as opposed to Buttermilk or Taughannock falls.
  • not the most beautiful state park around here, but one of the good ones. you can enjoy hiking and/or picnic in this park. very clean with several interesting trails for easy to medium hike.
  • This is a beautiful little state park with wonderful gorge trails that bring you past beautiful waterfalls. Be sure to walk up or drive down the park road to see the upper portion of the park that hardly gets visited. This is where the biggest waterfall actually is.
