Worlds End State Park is a 780acre Pennsylvania state park in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania, in the United States. The park, nearly surrounded by Loyalsock State Forest, is in the Loyalsock Creek valley on Pennsylvania Route 154, in Forks and Shrewsbury Townships southeast of the borough of Forksville. The name Worlds End has been used since at least 1872, but its origins are uncertain. Although it was founded as Worlds End State Forest Park by Governor Gifford Pinchot in 1932, the park was officially known as Whirls End State Forest Park from 1936 to 1943.The park's land was once home to Native Americans, followed by settlers who cleared the forests for subsistence farming and later built sawmills. The second growth forests in and surrounding Worlds End State Park are partially a result of the efforts of the young men of the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. They helped overcome the clearcutting of the early 20th century, and built many of the park's facilities, including the cabins that earned it a place on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • We stayed at the family campground area of the park, the bad side is the sites are close together and offer little privacy. The campground is along side a road (a state route) and even though not many...  read more »
  • Although the views, trails, & swimming area are nice. The majority of staff fall short on making you feel welcome & the campsites are awful. They are about 3 miles up the road from the park with no trails to walk to the park so you must drive to the park daily unless you prefer to stay at your campsite which is either right beside a main road or slanted/uneven on a hill. The tent sites are tiny and the showers weren't clean nor were they ever warm enough to stand in. Great for a day or one night stay but wouldn't camp here again.
  • Took a scout troop for a week long trip we stayed in the grpup camping area there werer no showers or flush toilets the site was on a slant and not hraded rained amd flooded
  • An absolutely great place to go camping if you're looking for small, quiet and isolated. No cell phone reception, no internet, no crowds, nice trails.
  • One of my favorite places to visit. Also the beginning and end of the World's End UltraMarathon. The DCNR staff is very helpful and its a great place to start a fun outdoor family day.
  • Beautiful park - have camped here for most of my life from young boyhood to middle age. Love the trails and the night sky. The views from the vistas is incredible. The park staff is helpful but leave you alone if that is what you want, and I generally just want to be left alone to write or read or pray or just relax. If you go on a week day you have tons of space and it is very quiet, weekends can get a bit crowded, but, it is a popular park.
