Took the little one to the creek, she looked for rocks and bugs and had the best time. It was a bit chilly when we went, but still had a lovely walk in the woods. There are shorter trails perfect for little kids.

We discovered this little gem completely by accident. Idlewild Park closed early one day and we didn't know until we arrived so we drove and came across this beautiful park. We have been coming up several times each spring/summer. There is a spring there so we make sure to fill our water bottles up. The water is ice cold and crystal clear. There are many areas to cookout and have picnics. There are cabins to rent for a week or a weekend. But we come here for Flat Rock. It is a short walk through the woods to the shallow river. There you will find a natural water slide. It is so much fun. An underground spring feeds into it so it is VERY cold but feels great on a hot summer day. The rocks can be slippery so bring water shoes to help keep from slipping and sliding. We also bring an inner tube to go on the slide.

We went to a new area of the park today to take a short hike to Beam Rocks. A friend posted the location on Instagram and we decided to check it out. It was easy to find and the trail was in very good condition. The view was very good, will have to come back in the fall to see the fall colors!

My husband and I stayed in Cabin 10 on April 19-21st for my birthday. The cabin itself was cute and charming. Having no running water or bathroom was an adjustment for me, but definitely manageable. There's a rustic bathroom within walking distance. A modern bathroom/shower house is about a minute drive away, which was nice. The view from our cabin might have been the best of all the sites. We brought our 5 year old German Shepherd with us for the trip and he seemed to love it as much as we did! Some nice trails (Adams Falls, Flat Rock) and scenic views a short drive away! Definitely worth the money. We will be returning!

The only complaint I have is in regards to our neighbors on site 9. We are dog people, but their dogs were on our site 3 times that we know of. Our dog was on a line the entire time because we wouldn't want him running up to anyone's site, and it was also for his safety. Our last day, I ended up hurting myself trying to pull our dog's line back, as their dogs were coming at him (unleashed). This isn't really a complaint about the park itself, but more of a suggestion to PLEASE secure your dogs if you're using one of the dog friendly cabins. It's such a nice perk, and I would hate to see it taken away due to negligence... or worse, someone's dog being hurt on a trip.

This park is about 45 miles from Pittsburgh there are some nice trails Adams Falls trail Table top trail nice easy walking trails. There's a mountain stream running through it with trout cabins to rent right along the stream. There's a nice mountain spring coming out of the side of the mountain,ice cold by the way. This park borders on the Forbes State forest near the laurel summit the road is gravel and at the very top is a mountain bog that has pitcher plants that eat insects which was very interesting to see. I would definitely recommend checking this park out very beautiful easy to get to. Bring jugs for clean free mountain spring water to take home.
