  • Cabins were simple but nice just to have some heat during the colder months. Restrooms are outdoors with no heat. (Doable but keep that in mind lookin at temps). Hiking trails were well kept and fun. ...  more »
  • Come on now, if you really understand what this park is it is one of the coolest. Very broad areas of rock deposited by glaciers. Deep bed of rocks. Been going here since a young boy and never dug dow...  more »
  • Mrs. Broderipii and I made our last 2017 Pennsylvania State Park picnic stop at Hickory Run in early October. We were there on a weekday so the park was largely empty and we had our choice of picnic t...  more »

  • Nice area! We stayed in a cabin and it was really nice. The bathrooms near the cabins were outdated. They are holes in the ground and you had to travel to shower. The hiking trails were great! We did them all! We hiked all the way to boulder field (long hike) to find a parking lot that takes you to the same place when we got there. Lol. We saw tons of wildlife. We woke up to deer near our cabin every morning. Faculty was very nice! The store there was never open the whole time we were there. We needed tick spray because the ticks were terrible!! We found about 8 on us!
  • Really nice state park for hiking and exploring. Trails are well marked and are suitable for all skill levels. Hawk Falls and Boulder Field are both locations that are popular and easy to get to. A state park that offers something different in all 4 seasons.
  • The boulder field is EXTREMELY cool. I'd recommend the park based on that alone. However, there's also tons of great hiking. The rangers in the park office were very helpful. I'll definitely be back. This would be a 5-star review had the road to the lake not been so awful. It was the most (and deepest) potholes I have ever seen on one relatively short stretch of road. Drive CAREFULLY!! Also, one of the few parks I've been to that didn't have a real bathroom at the park office.
  • I've been here so many times throughout my life. The whole park is maintained and upkept very nicely. Rangers are nice and helpful. There's a lake with a pretty nice picnic area. A boulder field. Some waterfalls etc. The campground is plain awesome. It has multiple bathrooms, a playground, and huge open playing fields. I remember playing baseball in those wide fields. Excellent for kids to play. It also contains an amphitheater too. The trails are what really gets you hooked. The first thing you notice is the bountiful supply of trails. They're all beautiful and range from easy, intermediate, and hard. There also several other state parks located right next to Hickory Run. Lehigh Gorge State Park comes to mind being about minutes away. Just a great overall place to visit and embrace nature.
  • Great place to take the family on a hot summer day. Tons of stuff to do. Just fill the gas tank in yiur car a go.
