  • Love this state park! They have a large pool that is reasonably priced. The campground has clean bathrooms and large sites. There are many trails to hike on and the lake is great for kayaking and fishing. They even offer boat rentals, which are a bit high but if you don't have one of your own..not too bad.
  • There is a 5 mile loop hike around the lake with several small hills which is an excellent training hike. The swimming pool is great too. And the lake is good for boat sports. It's beautiful in all seasons
  • Amazing park, small but quiet midweek during the fall. Great fishing and just a great place to go for a morning or afternoon hike, you can spend the day hete at the swimming pool in the summer. There are some very nice hunting zones in the park if that's your thing. So make sure in hunting season to wear bright clothing if you are walking the hunting trails. Some really unique views of central PA are here. If you want to have a REAL central pa experience, go here. Camping closes early in the season but they have modern cabins, rustic cabins and tent camping available. Facilities and rangers station are all kept in great shape. They take great pride in their park and cleanliness as well as being extremely friendly. The front desk clerk told me some history of the area while I was waiting for my girlfriend to use the bathroom. Amazing experience every time you come... In the winter they light up their covered bridge and have a Santa trail. Great place for kids, families and adults. Take your kids to the pool, walk the ridge trails and sit on one of the benches with the one you love, or just come and relax. There's everything! No need to go far, its less than an hour drive from Harrisburg or Selinsgrove to boot!
  • So much fun at the annual music and arts festival. amazing kids area with tons of free activities. this should be a must do annual event for families! plus awesome music in a variety of areas.
  • Absolutely LOVE this place! Its beautiful and I've never had a bad experience here. I come here multiple times a year and hike.
