Watkins Glen State Park: Located just outside of Watkins Glen, south of Seneca Lake in Schuyler County in New York State the park has beautiful hiking trails along the gorge allowing for awesome views of the gorge and falls. The day we visited the water was so overflown and rushing that you that the turquoise pools now looked very muddy. I guess we are going to have to visit again closer to the end of summer when the flow has calmed down 🙂 Never the less it definitely is a site to see!
Buttermilk Falls: Located southwest of Ithaca New York, Buttermilk Falls are located in Buttermilk Falls State Park. At the bottom of these falls is a swim area where campers can take a dip.

It is located south of the Village of Dansville on New York State Route 36. There is magnificent hiking trails along a deep gorge with rugged cliffs overlooking three beautiful waterfalls and fascinating rock formations. The park is also the home of the most beautiful natural swimming pool which was first opened in 1936. Created by workers from the Civilian Conservation Corps, who built walls with thick and thin layers of stone to mimic the natural gorge and dammed the stream.
