Taughannock Falls State Park Information
Taughannock Falls State Park is not only home to the Falls, though. There are also two separate waterfront sections of the park: North Point and South Point. South Point is a bit more recreational. There are lifeguards in the summer, if you'd like to go for a dip in beautiful Cayuga Lake, and the Park's popular summer concert series takes place at South Point as well. South Point is also home to the boat launch, so if you've brought your boat or jet-ski along with you from home, that's the place to go to launch it into the lake.
North Point is a bit more picnic-friendly and private, I find. I also find the beach to be a better place to skip stones, which is one of my favorite Finger Lakes activities (the wide, flat pieces of slate and shale that make up most of the beaches are perfect skipping stones).
Taughannock Park offers both tent and RV camping sites and rental cabins, and there are a variety of nearby bed and breakfasts and hotels, if you're not a fan of camping. For more information about the park, you can call (800) 456-2267.
