Must see · 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.

  • We camped at the State Park. It's a beautiful setting but if you are a light sleeper, don't camp there. Every night 5 trains passed through the valley and tooted their horns as they approached...  more »
  • This park has incredible hikes along with opportunities to swim and soak in cold water! My mom and I had a great time hiking and enjoying the rivers throughout. Such a fun trip with the family.  more »
  • We visited Ohiopyle Falls after visiting Falling Water and Kentuck Knob. The falls were lovely, although there were a lot of visitors on the Tuesday after Memorial Day. We took the pedestrian bridge.....  more »
  • Absolutely amazing place to be! My first time here was a bike ride on the Harley and we had just heard of it, but it honestly blew my mind!!! The next weekend we took the kids with us and we were NOT disappointed. Beautiful views, waterfalls, natural water slides, swimming areas, hiking trails, kayaking, white water rafting, biking, camping, playgrounds, zip lining, many different eateries and desert spots... anything you can imagine, they have it. We spent an entire day day there but can’t wait to go spend an entire weekend! Want to get away for a few hours? This is the place! Need a mini vacation? This is the place! Need a family day or a couples getaway? THIS IS THE PLACE!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
  • This place is fantastic! There are plenty of trails for hiking and bikes. The shops are nice and you can get some good food. I usually ride in the trail that goes to Washington and it's very natural and we'll maintained. In the way you can sit on boulders along the river and enjoy the beauty of it. I highly recommend it!
  • The staff that I interacted with today were phenomenal!!! First it was tour guide Andy. Great dude! Solid handshake.(that tells a lot about you where I'm from) Then Jamie working the booth. Such a sweet lady, so full of joy and knowledge! And this girl Vanessa. She was a big help also, big smiles, true smiles. What a great day.
  • Beautiful state park close to Pittsburgh. I stayed there and did the walking trails and biking. Great for a weekend or a whole week. There are plenty of trails and the town is relatively inexpensive. You can easily camp nearby or even get a hotel.
  • Beautiful place to escape from the city/suburbia. Some day I’d like to go rafting here, but I need to find people to go with me first! We hiked the peninsula with our three dogs and they had a blast. Afterwards we took them down to the little beach area so they could swim and cool off. Finished the afternoon with a picnic on the bank. I can’t wait to explore more here!
