     Letchworth State Park is located in the western half of New York State, 35 miles southwest of Rochester, between Mount Morris and Portageville. There are six entrances to the park, four located on the western side and two on the eastern side. The four western entrances are: Mount Morris (from Route 36), Perry (from Route 39), Castile (from Route 19A), and Portageville (from Route 19A). Nearly all of the waterfall viewing areas are reached best by using the western entrances. The two eastern entrances are the Parade Grounds (from Route 436), and Mount Morris Dam (from Route 408). The Parade Grounds and Portageville entrances are closed during the winter months. As is the park road from the Perry Entrance to the Castile Entrance. This page is part of the Letchworth State Park Information page by the Western New York Waterfall Survey.
