Adventure is Waiting at Panama Rocks!

Panama Rocks is open daily from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM (last admission at 4:00 PM).

Explore a half-mile long ridge of 60-foot high rock forming crevices, passageways, and caves hidden in an ancient forest! Located just 15 minutes from Chautauqua Lake (45 minutes from Erie and 90 minutes from Buffalo), Panama Rocks has been the #1-rated attraction in Chautauqua County based on independent reviews on TripAdvisor for over five years!

The formations at Panama Rocks are surrounded by a one mile long hiking trail, but most guests enjoy going off of the main trail to explore! Whether you take a casual hike in the woods or climb through the countless passageways, caves, and crevices, how much you do is up to you! Visitors spend anywhere from one hour to the entire day having fun and exploring the park. Picnic tables are available, so bring a lunch and enjoy your day with us!

Panama Rocks is perfect for families, couples, or individuals looking to spend time in nature. Our hiking trail is relatively easy to hike (Class 1) and guests of all ages enjoy it, but there are roots, rocks, and uneven ground; it is still a hiking trail! Strollers and wheelchairs are not recommended on the trail. For more information visit our Park Information page.

Panama Rocks is open daily, 10:00am until 5:00pm, from early May until late October. Local residents and frequent visitors may want to take advantage of our Season Pass and membership to Panama Rocks, which allows members to visit the park all season for one low price. Plan your trip to explore one of the most fun, popular, and affordable “things to do” in Western New York today!

Guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. No pets are allowed – sorry.

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy. – Susan Polis Schutz Photo by @rese716 #panamarocks #chq #chautauqualake #tourchautauqua #wny #ny #iloveny #wilderness #nature # forest #hike #jtny #explore #erie #eriepa #buffalo #buffalony #716
