I lucked out and went to the park on a crystal clear but warm-ish late winter night. It was muddy and some snow on the ground still but the temperature was in the 50Fs. There were very few people ther... more »
We came here in February thinking that it gets dark sooner and that there would be no crowds. Both of those thoughts were correct, but despite a nearly cloudless day as the sun set the clouds moved ri... more »

I enjoyed my experience at Cherry Springs. One of the best places to go stargazing in the north east region due to the very low light pollution. The weekend activities are fun and interesting. It does get a bit chilly though at night, even in the middle of summer. This place is definitely worth checking out!
Great for astronomy. No lasers though, not even outside the park because of the long exposures being taken. I go at least once per year to see some the clearest darkest skies. You can actually see the milky way and andromeda with the naked eye. Bathrooms are usually clean, but there are no showers.
The most stars visible to the naked eye in the northern hemisphere - and it rained the night we went. Fortunately, the surrounding area is really pretty and it’s a great place to “get away from it all”. We stayed at a bed and breakfast about 10 miles away from the Park (Frosty Hollow) and I would absolutely recommend staying there. Very friendly, breakfast was DELICIOUS, and we made some new retired-biker friends. The town itself shuts down very early; make sure to make restaurant reservations early enough to not eat McDonalds. Though we didn’t get to experience stargazing, we had a great time and plan on returning to see some stars.
We stayed in the sky shed on the perfect night. They were having a star gazing tour on the other side of the park. They pointed out all of the constellations and galaxies. We were able to gaze at the milky way all night. This park is a must see.
A very unique state park, instead of focusing on hiking trails and camping, this park focuses on the stars. You'll have to drive out into the middle of nowhere, but it'll be worth it. The atmosphere of the park during the day time is quite fun, it's calm and a little odd, what with all the telescope domes scattered around, making the park feel like a lunar base. As night time rolls around, everyone moves to blankets in the sky watching areas to look up. There will probably be someone there giving a little overview of the constellations and planets that are visible. Also, they provide red cellophane and maps and glowsticks, so no need to worry.
