The park is home to Glendale Lake a man-made lake. It has a large campground with campsites on the lake shore.

The park is just off Pennsylvania Routes 553 and 53 just east of Patton.HistoryRussian nobleman turned Catholic missionaryDemetris Gallitzin was born on December 22, 1770 at The Hague in the Netherlands. His name is a form of Galitzine, the Russian princely family in which he was born. His father, Dimitri Alexeievich Galitzine (1735-1803), Russian ambassador to the Netherlands, was an intimate friend of Voltaire and a follower of Diderot; so, too, for many years was his mother, Countess Adelheid Amalie Gallitzin (1748-1806), until a severe illness in 1786 led her back to the Roman Catholic Church, in which she had been raised.
