Summary: These falls are in a private campground a few miles away from Stony Brook State Park.

Sugar Creek Glen is a private campground near Dansville New York. Road signs tell you how to get there from I-360. I believe there is a fee to just visit the glen, but I do not know what it is (I spent the night).

There are several waterfalls here. One is in the campground itself, and is lit up at night. The campground is full of all the chaos typical of a private campground (which is good or bad depending on your disposition). The glen itself is quite wild. There is no trail, and you just have to work your way along the rocks and sometimes wade through the water. I went only as far as the the two-tiered waterfall pictured above. There appeared to be rough trail up and around the side of this, but I did not check it out.

Nearby Falls

Stony Brook State Park and Stone Falls are both just a few miles away. Naples, where you will find Grimes Glen Tannery Creek and others, is about 25 miles to the northeast. Letchworth State Park is about 30 miles to the northwest. Watkins Glen is just over an hours drive, and dozens of other falls.
