  • Best place for winter camping. Adirondacks keep you nice and warm despite freezing temps, and a beautiful park to visit when it's covered in snow. Been coming here for 15+ years and it has always been great.
  • Love the trails around oil Creek state park. We always go in Titusville and Rouseville. There is a nice bike trail and little to long trails for families. There is Bridges and waterfalls scattered throughout the park.
  • A friend and I went skiing here on the coldest day this winter (Jan 7th 2017-2018). The snow was great. And the blue trail that we did was really scenic. The warming hut was warm...and the park staff very helpful. Plenty of parking. It may be that I'm spoiled...having liven in Wisconsin. So, my expectation of what a groomed trail looks like may be different than what is typical in PA. But...these trails are "cleared" and packed down...as opposed to "groomed". Grooming in Wisconsin involves actually packing in cross-country ski tracks to follow. Granted...the snow was barely deep enough to try to do that. So...maybe that is what they do with a better base. That being said...I can't wait to go back and try some other trails.
  • Great place. The shelter set up is perfect.
  • This is a great place to take the family in the summer for bike rides and picnics! Its beautiful and there are lots of little areas with picnic tables and cute areas for the kids to swing and slide and more!
