  • Was here last August and it was the highlight of the trip. A rare dark sky preserve, and it didn't disappoint. My friend and I arrived at night, so it was already dark. I didn't think the main viewing...  more »

  • It's I believe a Gold Level park for dark sky Star viewing. No lights allowed without a cover over them. No headlights. Call to see if a reservation is needed. I have never reserved but I think people...  more »

  • Cherry Springs is by far one of the most underrated state parks in Pennsylvania! I was there in 2016 over the summer for two nights and it was beautiful. The milky way was visible to our naked eyes. Surreal. I've never seen anything like it even after having been to many national parks/natural places. Be sure to check the lunar calendar before you go- you want to go when the moon isn't showing to guarantee you see the most stars (moon light). Bring a blanket. Check the weather to make sure the skies are clear.
  • This place is known for its night skies for a good reason. I saw one of the best views of the milky way during my visit here. The locals in the nearby towns are also really helpful, and one of the store owners handed me a pretty useful kit which had red filters for mobile devices and flashlights, and a lot of useful information about the park.
  • Truly mesmerizing. If you are Into astronomy, I very strongly reccomend visiting. With amazing views of the milky way and billions of stars in the sky, you wont regret coming here.
  • Very nice place for stargazing. Can get crowded during presentations on weekends in the summer. Usually cool with a breeze blowing.
  • One of the best places in the east coast for stargazing. You can see the milkyway with your naked eyes!Truly amazing.
