Worlds End State Park, Forksville
(4.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A beautiful park. The landscape of the Loyalsock Canyon is breathtaking. Great park for hiking, a nice long loop around the whole park which catches all the best parts is possible. We have only hiked here.
  • My family has been going here for years, my dad is 58 and he grew up camping here. It's just a little tiny place but the swimming is one of the best! It's a fresh water creek
  • World's End has numerous hiking trails of varying lengths. Even the easiest trail has some steep sections that will challenge new or less fit hikers. Most trails, difficult as they might be, have spectacular views and are well worth the effort. Park is located a bit far from civilization so pack a lunch!
  • 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.
  • My favorite park in PA. The Loyalsok Trail runs through the park and affords miles of incredible views. The park itself has everything you need for a weekend getaway. Tent spots, RV hookups and even cabins for rent.
