Alite: Fun Simple Outdoor Gear for Casual Camping

Buttermilk Falls State Park

Bring all your lawn games to Buttermilk Falls State Park. This charming historic state park is a great place to gather your people, picnic, sleep outside, and feel removed. Eat with the backdrop of Buttermilk Falls and venture into the gorge or the many hiking trails with your family and friends. Camping here is a great opportunity to pack a canoe and explore the greater Finger Lakes region. There is both tent sites and cabins, covered pavilions for large party picnics, showers, a swimming beach and plenty of grills!
