State Park Nature / Park
Bike, hike, or whitewater raft along the Youghiogheny River Gorge at Ohiopyle State Park. This park, which opened in 1965, features 23 km (14 mi) of the Youghiogheny River and boasts some of the best rafting in the eastern United States. Different parts of the park offer level I and II rapids, while another section affords the more difficult level III and IV rapids. Take in stunning views of the park's many waterfalls, including the 6.1 m (20 ft) Ohiopyle Falls, as you raft. Another favorite is the park's natural Meadow Run Waterslides, which have been carved out by nature and function like a waterpark waterslide in a natural setting, only a bit rougher. You can also canoe, kayak, horseback ride, and even cross-country ski through this 19,052 hectare (7,710 acre) park with over 160 km (100 mi) of trails.

  • Beautiful state park! Plenty of fun with swimming at cucumber falls, rafting, bicycling, and hiking! Staff at welcome center was very friendly and helpful. Great little town with restaurants and shops. Falls were beautiful, water was clear, and everything was well maintained. Highly recommend cucumber falls picnic area for a great secluded spot away from the sometimes busy falls to hang out, eat, and play in the creak!
  • This is one of my MOST favorite PA parks. Plus you can hike from the state campground to the main town. We went white water rafting the past trip and had way way too much fun. There are also natural water slides, super lovely hikes, and a couple really great restaurants in town. MUST SEE STOP for Western PA.
  • Ohio Pyle is a beautiful and clean park. There are a lot of shops and local restaurants including bike rental to for the bike trail. There are lots of walking trails and places to swim in the Yough River. The new visitor center is really cool and you should definitely stop in to learn about the area. Parking can be kind of difficult as it is a very popular place.
  • This place is such a treasure. Whether you like to just take in the abundant beauty of the area or you are a great outdoors kind of person... This place is perfect. You can set up for the day lounging along the river and have a picnic. We spent time exploring trails along the river and walking through low waters to lounge on rocks. We also visited Baughman overlook and on a different day explored Cucumber falls. You are able to swim in the natural lagoon. Plenty of photo ops. You can also do more rigorous trails... Zipline... Biking... White water rafting for the beginner to expert. They have good eateries in case you forgot to pack a picnic.... You could spend the summer there and still not have seen all the beauty this area has to offer
  • One of my favorite places in pa. Falls are great. Planing a camping trip. Too much to do in one day. Natural water slides was my favorite part . I loved it
