Discover Taughannock Falls State Park, NY

Standing atop the viewpoint overlooking the 215-foot Taughannock Falls, you'll feel like the king of the world watching over your dominion of craggy cliffs and gorges. Named after its main attraction, Taughannock Falls State Park is the ideal tranquil retreat. Incredible gorges, astonishing waterfalls, and the sun-kissed Cayuga Lake shoreline attract thousands of visitors from all over the state of New York and beyond.

Aside from enjoying the waterfalls, you'll have endless opportunities to engage in a variety of outdoor activities. From wildflower viewing and fishing to swimming and hiking, Taughannock Falls State Park offers a little bit of everything for everyone. RV camping at Taughannock Falls State Park is all about enjoying the fresh air, relaxing with a good book while sunbathing, or cooling off in the pristine lake. The campsites are nestled in a quaint woodland of striped maples, white oaks, and blooming wildflowers. This serene expanse is home to several bird species, including the common loon, raven, turkey vulture, and great horned owl.

Thanks to park's close proximity to the towns of Trumansburg (three miles), Ithaca (ten miles), and Syracuse (65 miles), you'll be in a good position to extend your motorhome camping experience. After exploring the wonders of the park, you can venture out to see some of the unique attractions across the region. All you have to do is book an RV in Tompkins County, pack your supplies, and set out for an adventure you'll never forget.

Getting Outdoors

State park RV camping allows guests to immerse themselves in nature and enjoy as many exciting outdoor activities as possible. One fan favorite here is undoubtedly swimming, as the swimming areas at Cayuga Lake welcome both skilled swimmers and beginners.

In addition to swimming, visiting thrillseekers can also test their mettle on the hiking trails. Put on your hiking boots and pick one of the six trails that vary in length and difficulty. A recommended choice for the adventurers would be the Multi-Use Trail, which travels through the park's upland forests. Hit the South Rim Trail to enjoy breathtaking views of the upper gorge. For those who are simply interested in a casual, smooth stroll, hit the Cabin Trail, a lovely pathway along the shoreline.

Of course, you can explore the wonders of this state park on two wheels as well. Once you park your rental RV and set up camp, hop on your bike and ride along the park's trails and paved roads. Avid cyclists will want to check out the eight-mile Black Diamond Trail, a moderate route which connects Taughannock Falls State Park with nearby Cass Park.

Last but not least, Taughannock Falls State Park is a great place for anglers as well as the big game hunters out there. To fish, you'll need to purchase a one-day or a seven-day pass, unless you already have a license, and bring your gear. If you want to go hunting, you'll need to come during deer season. Bring your bow, as guns aren't allowed. Also, remember to adhere to the rules in the NYS Hunting & Trapping Regulations Guide.
