Taughannock Falls State Park's namesake waterfall is one of the outstanding natural attractions of the Northeast.

2 Star Rating   September 3rd, 2012   OK if you can tolerate small, crowded sites
Taughannock Falls is typical of NY state parks in the Finger Lakes region - cramped campgrounds with older amenities, with most sites designed for a single tent and few that can accomodate large trailers or RV`s. Taughannock Falls is a sprawling park and the campground loop is off the beaten path, you will need to walk or drive along busy roads to reach the beach or the falls overlook. It is a convenient location to camp if you don`t want to be too long a drive from Ithaca or from Watkins Glen, but it is not a relaxing place to chill out as the sites are mostly tiny and right up against each other and nearby road traffic can be heard frequently. The clientele over Labor Day Weekend was mostly quiet and family-oriented. The bathrooms were clean but had broken fixtures (typical of Finger Lakes region).
