I especially love walking around the lake on the trail which is very beautiful. A nice place to visit for a few hours and visit with family who camped there.

This Pennsylvania State Park is built around a reservoir. There are many campsites but only about half are available this early in the season. The sites are well-spaced, but not heavily screened from each other. Sites vary widely in their state of being level. We...More

Good clean camping, walking around the lake on paved path. Swimming, fishing from boat or dock (consult park officials for regulations on all, including days, times, cost to camp, etc. They're courteous and helpful). Restrooms maintained, security enforced. Outdoor activities year round center on nature...More

This park is so beautiful, especially in the fall. The path around the lake is a great walk, paved for making your walk or biking easier and safer. Great for camping, lots of campsites. For me it's a gem, close to home.
