  • UPDATE: EASTER SUNDAY APRIL 1 2018 TRIP! The park looks super lovely now that the snow has died down. Loads of hiking trails, nearby muskrat beach is lovely and great place to just chill and relax. Bring the kids and family.. they'll love it! Very big park! The camping site is very spacious. Lots of trail walks but couldn't get far because the snow was so thick. Most sites around the park were inaccessible because of the snow but worth looking at how beautiful and white it was! Did a bit of skating on the lake front which was cool. Will be coming back for the summer.
  • I love it there. It's very relaxing weather I'm fishing or just walking on one of their many trails. They also helped me when I locked myself out of my car. Very helpful. It's a very beautiful place!
  • The disc golf course is very long. Some of the holes in the back nine you have no idea where your heading and sometimes get a little lost. Finding hole number one is also difficult. If you come late spring to play disc golf and the course has been maintained, you will not be dissatisfied. Some of the holes are unique and challenging. The overgrowth can take some holes over and this leads to a tricky play. I wish they would improve the markers to where the next hole is or maybe place a few maps. It was worth the trip because there are not a lot of courses in the area.
  • Most PA state parks are beautiful. This one just holds a special place. The views, the cabins, the air. It just feels like a place to call home.
  • This is one of my favorite local State Parks! It is always well kept, and there are a variety of great events throughout the year.
