Watkins Glen State Park is the most famous of the Finger Lakes State Parks, with a reputation for leaving visitors spellbound. Within two miles, the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade. Rim trails overlook the gorge. Campers and daytime visitors can enjoy the Olympic-size pool, modern playground, scheduled summer tours through the gorge, tent and trailer campsites, picnic facilities, and excellent fishing in nearby Seneca Lake or in Catherine Creek, which is renowned for its annual spring run of rainbow trout.
Features 305 campsites. Although none are on the water, campers have only a short walk (or drive) down the hill to visit the neighboring waterfalls. 53 sites are electric.
Watkins Glen State Park is located in the village of Watkins Glen, at the south end of Seneca Lake, in Schuyler County.
$15-$19/night, add $6 for electric sites
