CASTILE, N.Y. (AP) - Letchworth State Park has a new honor.

The western New York park grabbed the top spot in the 2015 USA Today Readers’ Choice Award for Best State Park. It beat out Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Michigan.

Watkins Glen State Park in the Finger Lakes finished in third place.

Letchworth is sometimes called the Grand Canyon of the East and features the Genesee River running over three major waterfalls. Watkins Glen has a gorge path winding around 19 waterfalls.

Twenty state parks were nominated from more than 6,000 considered.
