Buttermilk Falls State Park
Buttermilk Falls State Park takes its name from the foaming cascade formed by Buttermilk Creek as it flows down the steep valley side toward Cayuga Lake.
The upper park has a small lake, hiking trails through woodlands, and along the gorge and rim, picnic areas and playing fields.
The lower park has a campground, natural pool and playing fields, beyond which is Larch Meadows. Larch Meadows is a wetland area through which a nature trail winds.
Buttermilk Falls has one pavilion which accommodates 73 people. The pavilion has a 2-day minimum rental and is $100 per day. Patrons should reserve shelters directly through the Reserve America website. Check availability at ReserveAmerica.com.
