This park is very cool and worth the trek to Olean to check out. There are so many gigantic boulders to check out and see. Be warned if you bring little ones that are walking to be very careful as there are some steep ledges...More

This park is easy to get to and fun to hike. The rock formations are amazing. It's a reasonable place even if your fitness level is lacking. A good pair of sneakers or walking shoes is all you need. And some bug spray.

Hike around the rocks at your leisure. We spent a very pleasurable 3+ hours hiking, exploring, and taking photos. Lots to look at in the gift shop as well.

I believe there are a few grills and there are a few places near the parking lot that you can set up. There are not grills or places within the park.

I'd say anywhere from an hour to 3 hours. It's not a big park, but the rock formations are quite interesting. There are steep steps to navigate. There is a rock museum in the office/visitor center. Worth a look too.
