The whirlpool was a really a cool thing to see. It was only 10 minutes from the falls and a must see.

We stopped at Whirlpool State Park while returning to Niagara Falls from Old Fort Niagara. It's an easy stop off the highway with great views. There is a very easy trail to viewing areas above the whirlpool. You can also watch the aero tram cars...More

Nice stop on the scenic parkway. You can watch the speed boat in the rapids below, and watch the gondola on the Canadian side and comment on how crazy those folks are to ride across that gorge!

A must see, but backed by the history of how the river shifted directions completely and you can see how the water just whirlpools is just amazing. Out of the way and not overly crowded with tourists and well worth the view and the time...More

The sheer power of water coming from the falls and to see the boats take people in the whirlpool area was nice and clean. Plan on walking if you want to get close to the water its and 3 mile trip down

Of course its not as popular as Niagara Falls itself, the crowds are limited, but there are a lot of great photographic view of the rapids, the gorge and the whirlpool.

I'm not sure. I didn't see any cabins but I'd say to contact the part directly. They have a website and it'll probably have a bunch of information

They are all connected as a trail. If you start at Whirlpool State Park, you can go either way...toward the falls or Devil's Hole. If you want to walk down Devil's Hole leave a minimum of three hours for experienced hikers... More
