This rest area also doubles as a NY state police headquarters. The grounds are well maintained and clean. The picnic tables were also clean and the interior was also very well maintained. Everything was clean and organized. The restrooms were stocked and clean as well. This rest area has a large grassy area and an excellent view of Lake Chautauqua.

Breath taking views of the lake. Amazing and ample outdoor seating. Lots of space to wander. It is the most beautiful rest stop I have visited. If you are a fan of rest stops which I always have been. They're such an important part of road trips that when you find a gem like this you almost want to keep it to yourself. I go out of my way to just drive through it because its so beautiful. I love the architecture of the building it shows the old Buffalo craftmanship and makes me proud. It is a great place to stop and take pictures of the lake and it's free and out of the way. There are many great vantage points since it is one of the higher altitudes along the lake being on a bit of a hill. The gentleman at the help desk will go out of his way to try and help you even if he knows the odds aren't in his favor of finding it because it's not on their route he will still try. Plenty of vending machines, brochures, help, parking for all sized vehicles and bathrooms **** it's good enough I had to write this review about it ?mind you these are lazy photos. They actually could have been 10x better if I stood on the little wall but I was in a rush ?♀️

Never thought I would feel inclined to leave a review for a rest stop but this one stands out. It gets 5 stars as far as rest stops go. It has a large parking lot, beautiful building, sitting areas and gardens. The best part about it is the view of the lake, especially at sunset. Whenever we are traveling to New York we stop here first before continuing are travels.

One one the most beautiful rest areas I’ve ever seen! Beautifully manicured gardens, grass, and facilities! We could have stayed here all summer!
