If you enjoy nature and history this is a very enjoyable area to visit. Our family has had gatherings at Shawnee state park for as long as I can remember whenever we visited PA and after moving here. You can fish, swim, boat, picnic, and the surrounding area has opportunities for viewing historical buildings, antiques, biking and hiking. I would... More

I live nearby.. so my family comes here very often. It is very scenic and peaceful. You can walk on different trails,picnic in one of their many areas, fish, you can bike, there is even a place you can camp. If you walk around the whole lake, it is 3.5 miles.

My wife and I stopped at the Shawnee Market Café & soft Serve for a quick ice cream cone, but when they told us about their apple dumpling sundae, we decided to split (their advice) one of these. WOW, sure made the day and what flavor!

Roughly 3.5 mile easy hike around the lake. The trail is wide and well maintained. Yearly visits will net you views of deer, eagles, and other wild life. 90% is shaded.

I attended Living Waters Church Camp in Schellsburg for many years. Everyday they would bus us to Shawnee Lake. The state park is a hidden gem. There is so much to do! Picnic Groves, playgrounds, swimming in the lake, hiking, boating, sand volleyball or just relaxing in the grass. It's a great way to spend a sunny afternoon!

Well worth visiting this state park. The path around the lake is level and easy. Some other trails were also available.

When visiting this area, we always try to make it a point to walk around Shawnee Lake on this very nice trail. You may even get a chance to spot a bald eagle or an osprey diving for dinner. The trail offers a fairly easy grade.
