  • The biggest turnoff of the smaller fall/winter campground here is the lack of privacy between campsites. I'm used to other Pennsylvania state parks that provide a buffer of trees between campsites (li...  more »
  • This is a neat place. There are lots of dirt roads that go on and on. There's a lot of good trees here and dark forests. We were fortunate to see a bear roaming around a road here and then back into t...  more »
  • Boulder field was a really cool place to see, and to actually climb out on the rocks. Spent some time at some of the lakes, and taking sunset photos.  more »

  • This place is awesome. You have to go back several times to walk all the trails and that may not be enough...camping there is probably the best option. We're going camping there in a month and we're pretty excited. The trails and waterfalls are a real thing of natural beauty. The Shades of Death trail is definitely the best trail and most difficult. I have no clue why anyone would suggest this trail as easy a D kid friendly...it is NOT kid friendly. Maybe for a 10-12 year old. Nevertheless it was an awesome experience, a wonderful place to visit I highly recommend going
  • I've only been to Hawk Falls and Sand Spring Beach here, but the hike was nice and wide and shaded for majority of the trail. There were several nice spots to enjoy the cool water. The only drawback is that it seems to get super crowded when the weather's nice, especially the beach.
  • Check out Boulder field. Rocks pushed down from the ice age. Very unique. Shades of death Isa nice trail. The beach is ok but not supervised.
  • The campground is awesome! Plenty of places around to hike, a beach nearby, good facilities. It's a beautiful park - I recommend the Boulder Field and Shades of Death trail!
  • Hickory Run is a beautiful state park. We hiked Hawk Falls and Shades of Death which are both easy trails with great views. Even just driving through would be with your time. Loved it.
