Taughannock Falls State Park, just north of Ithaca, is best known for its namesake cascade, a majestic waterfall that plummets 215 feet on its way to Cayuga Lake. One of the most impressive waterfalls in the eastern United States, it’s roughly 30 feet higher than Niagara Falls. Swimming in the pool beneath the falls is strongly discouraged, due to the likelihood of falling rock. The campground is about three-quarters of a mile from the waterfall, north of the popular picnic area, boat launch, and fishing pier. Sites 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 55–57, 61, 63, 65, 67, and 68 have the best views of Cayuga Lake on the other side of Route 89. Cabins 4 and 17 are handicapped accessible. Both the cabin area and the tent and trailer area have restrooms with showers. Three trails follow Taughannock Creek west from the lake—two above the rim and another down in the gorge—while the multiuse trail leading north from the Falls Overlook parking area forms another 2-mile hiking loop. The Museum of the Earth, the Cayuga Nature Center, and Frontenac Point Vineyard are all a short drive from the park.
