The park also offers tents, trailer campsites, and cabins. Group camping facilities are also available.

Letchworth State Park’s amenities include biking, equestrian trails, fishing, hunting, Nature Center, playgrounds, showers, a swimming pool, and more.

As per the Wyoming County Tourism website, over the last decade, businesses and services like outdoor outfitters, campgrounds, nature preserves, hospitality destinations, adaptive recreation equipment specialists, and an ADA-compliant nature trail have rapidly grown in the Genesee Valley–turning the region from a rustic hidden gem into one of New York State’s most accommodating outdoor adventure destinations.
