Robert Treman State Park is known for its rugged and stony gorge, Enfield Glen, and the 115-foot Lucifer Falls. In fact, Lucifer Falls is just one of 12 waterfalls along the park's 9 miles of winding trails. The park also features a stream-fed swimming area beneath a waterfall, campsites, cabins and RV sites. 

Recent visitors called Robert Treman the best state park in the region thanks to its gorgeous views, but caution that you must be in good shape to hike up the steep trail to the upper falls. Meanwhile, photography buffs said the old mill and Gorge Trail offer great photo ops. Animal lovers appreciated the pet-friendly hiking and camping. 

The park is open daily and charges a vehicle entry fee of $7 from mid-April to mid-October. Campsites run from $18 to $28 and cabins from $210 a week to $400 a week. Additional fees may apply for nonresidents. The park is located in Tompkins County near Ithaca, easily accessible via SR13. Keep in mind: Trails may close during inclement weather.

#1 Skaneateles Lake

Located about 23 miles southwest of Syracuse, Skaneateles Lake is the sixth-largest of the Finger Lakes. The name means "long lake" in the Iroquois language and indeed, the 16-mile-long lake crosses three counties: Onandaga, Cayuga and Cortland. The historic Skaneateles Village dates back to the Revolutionary War and is filled with local shops, restaurants, inns and bed-and-breakfasts. The sparkling, clear lake is a favorite for boating and fishing. 

Many recent visitors to Skaneateles Lake said it was a favorite stop and loved the charming, historic town, saying that both dining and shopping were excellent. Visitors also commented on the lake's calm and clean "crystal clear" waters and said that even though it's off the beaten path it's well worth a visit. Several recommended one of the local boat tours, such as those provided by Mid-Lakes Navigation, as a way to learn the history of the area.
