really cool!

Great swimming hole. Parking is really tough, so you need to get there early. there is a diving board and life guard, so it is safe.

Cool place. The waterfall is beautiful, and the gorge pool is cool and clean. There are a bunch of Lifeguards there and a diving board. The water is freezing, though.

A few miles southwest of Ithaca, NY, on Route 13, you’ll find the gorgeous Robert H. Treman NY State Park. Located around the Enfield Glen gorge, the hiking is fantastic. There are probably a dozen waterfalls along the hike, and you won’t be disappointed! This is one of our family’s favourite places to hike when we’re visiting the Finger Lakes... More

One of the only natural swimming areas in Ithaca. Always a great place for swimming and a picnic. Camping here is also amazing.

This park was always my favorite when I attended Cornell many, many years ago. I just brought my children for the first time, and they loved it as much as me. The park is a short 10-15 minute drive from Ithaca. [Hint: Stop at Wegman's on your way out of town for a meal or for picnic items.] There is... More

Must see! Beautiful stone walking path to Lucifer Falls that is carved along gorge walls. Fairly easy waking (some steps). Swimming hole at bottom of Park is nice. Has a diving board, which so many places do not have anymore. Flush toilets bathroom and changing area.

We spent 3 nights camping. We were lucky to have a shaded site close to the bathrooms. The bathrooms were clean and the staff keep the sites clean. The walk to the swimming area was short. The swim area is heavily used, but clean. I witnessed the life guards picking up trash every evening. The hike up the gorge was... More

Great waterfalls including lucifer falls. A few trail options could easily spend the whole day hiking. The water trail is nice and the main trail comes close to the water in a few spots. Seasonal swimming hole and camping are also available. Great for a family trip.

We'd never had the pleasure of swimming at the base of a waterfall before. People of all ages were enjoying this beautiful spot.

Where else can you jump off a diving board into the basin after a waterfall?! It was amazing. Such a fun day. Beautiful grounds. Don't think you need to use SMALL restroom by parking lot to change; full-sized changing room near falls.
